Publisher's Description

Is nature's garden the only place to gather roses? Not if you know where to look A Rose Among the Ashes takes you on an enlightening journey toward understanding how "ashes" represent life's trials-where "roses" are the blessings God brings and the heart's "hearth" is where you search to find those roses. Discovering hope during times of crisis can seem like an overwhelming task, but Debby Jones has realized through her own walk of faith that this is just what you have to do in order to continue the journey. The Hearth of My Heart: That deep place within me that experiences all of life's emotions and holds the "love fire" of God. Ashes: The pile of leftovers after my dreams or plans have "gone up in smoke." Roses: Those blessings (or positive things) that can be found on the hearth after cleansing tears have diluted the ashes. Debby shares her heart and God's truths in this poignant story that includes her husband's devastating struggle with cancer and his ultimate home-going. Looking back through the "album pages of life," she began to write about ashes and roses-crises and hope. She also helps the reader to understand the importance of finding that hope and how to take the fi rst step. Walk with her as she encourages you to come to know intimately the One who has helped her discover the hope that fills her life. Debby Fields Jones enjoys life in the small northeastern Alabama town of Piedmont, her adopted hometown of marriage, where she works at Jacksonville State University and has been involved in the ministries of music and teaching children and youth. Debby was married to her husband, Eddie, for twenty-eight years before he went home to his Lord. She is the mother of one son, Jeremy, and the grandmother of three: Davis, Emily, and Will.

Author/Artist Review

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Became a widow at the age of 50. I have one son, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren. God brought another wonderful husband to me in 2008 and we were married in just three months. I am retiring in August 2009 and waiting to see what door God will open for us.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  Prompted by the urging of the Lord, I longed to share the story of my life-long faith walk to illustrate God's promise of bringing blessings out or our disappointments or tragedies.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  God offers encouragement to seek Him and to allow Him to heal the hurts we experience throughout our living. I encourage others to trust Him as I have. He never fails. When your plans go "up in smoke," there is a "rose among the ashes."

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I learned more about my own faith. I realized the importance of waiting on God and His perfect will. Writing this book helped me to work through the grief of my husband's death and it moved me to a higher level in my relationship with God.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I have been privileged to meet my favorite Christian fiction authors, Karen Kingsbury and Terri Blackstock. My greatest source of inspiration will always be...my Heavenly Father.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  "A Rose Among the Ashes" is a simple story in three sections...the hearth of my heart, ashes, and roses. God is an integral part of each.
