Publisher's Description

Welcome to The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump. It's a fish out of water story about how God turns 32-year-old Julie's manicured, pedicured, self-absorbed designer life upside down.  

 Julie, a nominal Christian, heads to New York for a weekend shopping binge. On a deserted train, she sits next to a stranger who turns out to be Jesus. After a wonderful, healing conversation she agrees to His request to, "feed My lambs." When she gets off the train she's in India.

Her charmed life is shattered--she must care for 12 "filthy orphans" living on a dump before she can return to her comfortable life. She lives on the street and overwhelming new challenges arise daily. While squatting in an alley, going to the bathroom, an orphan, named Ravi, steals her designer purse. Unbeknownst to Julie, Ravi, who speaks English, holds the key to her communicating with the other orphans.

Will Julie learn 1) to trust the Lord when nothing is in her control? 2) that she doesn't have to perform to be loved? and 3) that her life is built on a shaky foundation? Can she protect the orphans from a predator who steals and maims children and sends them out to beg? How will God provide food when her wallet is stolen? Can she find safe homes for the children?

The answers to these questions will also be the answers to many of your questions about God, life and yourself. Pick up a copy of The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump
and jump into a great adventure!

    This book held my attention from the start, and I have already recommended it to several friends. I could hardly put it down, but luckily I was on vacation and could read in the airport, on the plane and some on my trip. I finished it before I came home and was sad not to have it to read anymore! The lessons it teaches are invaluable!

    It's a great book. I laughed, cried and praised God thoughout the book. I was reminded that God's plan for salvation is not as difficut as we make it out to be. Simple faith is all that is needed to find God.

    When Jesus Changes Julie's Direction from Designer Clothes to Feeding Orphans

    Julie, self-centered and insecure seeks fulfillment and satisfaction by being on the cutting edge in designer clothes, accessories, as well as perfection in home decorating and in career accomplishment. A planned two day shopping spree in New York City took an unexpected twist to become a supernatural extended spiritual experience with Jesus in India.

    In her book "The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump" Jackie Macgirvin uses the platform of fiction to deliver a strong message of self-discovery. I was personally moved as I vicariously absorbed the message of Julie's conversations with Jesus, her struggle to surrender her will to Him and to see her life transformed by a newly found intimacy with Jesus. Julie also received the healing and freedom that comes with obedience to God.

    The plight of 44,000 orphans victimized each year by the "beggar mafia" in India is dramatically presented through a composite of the lives of eleven orphans living on a garbage dump. Poverty, parental neglect, famine, and kidnapping are all factors that lead to the abuse of these children as they are forced into begging, child pornography, and are sexually abused.

    Macgirvin's character development is strong. Key characters reveal character flaws common to most of us. Jackie skillfully reveals transformation and growth in the depth of Julie and the orphans as they build a relationship of trust in each other, and faith in Jesus.

    Although I sometimes thought the story line became repetitious or too idealistic I was careful to read on as I did not want to miss a single word of Julie's next conversation with Jesus, as I found them personally applicable to my own faith.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.

    "The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump" is a powerful reminder of the admonition that _ true religion is manifest in meeting the needs of _ orphans in their time of trouble.
