New Book by Inspirational Author Carolyn Brooks Shows Keys to Breaking Cycle of Abuse Many Women Face in Relationships

DALLAS, TX (May 25, 2006) --- If walking through tremendous hardship, abuse, and despair -- and coming out victorious -- is a prerequisite for showing people the way to successful living, then count author and inspirational speaker Carolyn Brooks as a master teacher.

In her latest book project, Breaking The Silent Addiction: Why Women Settle for a Frog When a Prince Is Coming, Brooks addresses a serious issue she has witnessed all too often as she ministers at womens conferences and in churches throughout the nations. Much of what I suffered before I came through to spiritual wholeness was the result of looking for love and fulfillment in the wrong places, explained Brooks. Its a cycle I see played out in the lives of all too many women even Christians. The truths that I share in Breaking the Silent Addiction are foundational to shattering this stronghold once and for all.

While Brooks enjoyed a successful career in business, rising through the professional ranks during a nearly 30-year career with Southwestern Bell and SBC Communications, shes also known the pain and humiliation of domestic abuse and divorce, the hardships of single parenting, and the incredible pain of a child gone astray.

Brooks own story of victory began nearly 25 years ago when she re-connected with the simple faith in God that she had first discovered as a little girl. I had given my heart to Christ when I was nine years old, recalled Brooks. But when I got to college I made some choices that would eventually lead me to the pit of despair. It was only when I came to the end of myself, and cried out to God for His mercy, that my life turned around.

Marrying in her freshman year of college, Brooks ultimately found herself the victim of emotional and physical abuse -- and divorce. While she tried to fill the void in her life through her career, Brooks recalls that she could not shake the loneliness, depression, and despair that had attached to her. I sought help through doctors and psychiatrists, but their solution was medication, and that just added to my problems, she explained.

In 1982, at the depths of despair and contemplating suicide, Brooks began recalling the simple faith of her childhood and the sermons her father, a minister, had preached about the love of Jesus, eternal life, and being born again.

I know now that this was Gods Holy Spirit calling me back to my heavenly Father, said Brooks. At that moment, though, I only knew enough to simply cry out, Oh God, please help me!

Instantaneously, miraculously, Brooks experienced a divine touch of Gods intervention. My mind began to clear, and for the first time I experienced the joy, peace, purpose, and real meaning to life that I had been searching for.

She was also instantly free of the dependence on medications that had controlled her life. As I began to grow in my faith and love for the Lord, I began to realize that God had the power to break any bondage in my life, if I would only submit to His purpose and will, Brooks said.

That realization has led Brooks to minister this same salvation and deliverance from bondage to countless individuals over the years through her books, studies, seminars, and ministry at churches. My passion is to share with everyone I can the abundant life and freedom I have found in Jesus Christ, she explained. I know from person experience that there is no bondage too deep, no situation or circumstance too impossible, that Gods love and mercy cant redeem.

Brooks is gearing up to share that transforming power worldwide through the release of Breaking the Silent Addiction. I believe the message in this book is going to set many women and their families free to be all that God intended them to be, she said. Im looking forward to seeing that happen.
