Not Mine Alone
By: Tara Homsey
About the Book
“Not Mine Alone takes a sobering look at the destructive power of sin balanced with a powerful glimpse of the redemptive power of Christ. Tara pulls the curtain back on her life, showing the depths to which abuse, drug use, reckless sex, and mental health issues took her. Yet despite all of this, she found a beautiful identity in Jesus. This book is an engaging read. Most importantly, I was reminded of God’s ability to exchange our pain for His righteousness.”
-Jason Gunter, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist
“Tara offers a vulnerable upclose look into her life story of difficulties and redemption. Her first-person story telling pulls readers toward the redemptive power of God.”
-Dr. Scott Hadden, SCOPE Ministries
“This book is extremely open and honest. Tara has unlocked her soul to share her soul to share her struggles with others, praying that this book can benefit people who battle drugs, sex and a sense of lostness in the world. Well-written, this true, heart-wrenching story can help open the readers’ eyes to escape from despair and look to God for hope and healing.”
-Kathryn Spurgeon, author of Jesus, One on One
