About

J.A. loves seeing wounded souls mend. Her embattled spirit suspense novels, each laced with supernatural elements, take characters on a healing adventure guided by the hand of God the Father. On the side, she dabbles in non-fiction articles and e-zine editing. J.A. owes many thanks Jerry Jenkins and the Christian Writer’s Guild for their support and education.

WHAT IS AN EMBATTLED SPIRIT:

When Jesus Christ walked the earth, he said,

“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon me, for the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted and to proclaim that captives will be released and prisoners will be freed.” Isaiah 61:1

J.A.’s Scripture-based blog is also dedicated to healing spirit, soul and body and to encouraging the embattled spirits: those who believe God still saves, heals, equips, and empowers.
