Atlanta, GA, February 10, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- C. Joyce Farrar-Rosemon never envisioned as she sat on the housing projects steps located in Boston’s inner city that one day she would earn a six-figure income as a successful business woman, become a highly acclaimed Motivational Speaker and an accomplished writer.
In this her second book, Farrar-Rosemon dissects the Biblical story of Joseph and uncovers a 14-Step Recovery Plan to overcome loneliness, depression, discrimination, barrenness and abuse. The author’s spiritual and psychological analysis of Joseph’s trials, tribulations, and triumphs reveal to the reader how to achieve the promises of God and arrive at that place of shalom, the Hebrew word for peace.
Farrar-Rosemon draws on her background as a broker and psychiatric social worker and shares how her personal tragedies and those of other individuals and groups were resolved using this 14-Step Program. This book details statistics on depression, unemployment, abuse, addictions, miscarriage, abortion, HIV/AIDS, discrimination and other timely social and psychological ills. The Appendix contains national toll-free 800 resource numbers for individuals and groups to connect with so that they can begin the healing process.
Otis S. Johnson, Ph.D., Mayor of Savannah, Georgia says, “Farrar-Rosemon is a successful real estate broker who started out as a psychiatric social worker. She found her real calling as a Christian-based writer and motivational speaker. How To Get To The Palace From Your Prison uses the Biblical story of Joseph to create a 14 Step plan to overcome situations that cause people to be stressed, depressed, and less successful in life. This book is a wonderful addition to the self-help Christian literature and to the field of Christian social work, and counseling. Whatever the religious position of the reader, the author’s interpretation of the story of Joseph is well worth the read.”
Farrar-Rosemon speaks frequently to non-profit groups, schools, colleges, and churches. She has appeared in several newspapers, magazines, on radio and television. Farrar-Rosemon holds a bachelor's degree in psychology and elementary education and a master's degree in psychiatric social work from Simmons College.
