Book Review: Miss Brenda and the Loveladies

51d9Y9InwgL._SY344_PJlook-inside-v2,TopRight,1,0_SH20_BO1,204,203,200_This book charmed me! I just loved it – an inspiring story of Brenda Spahn, a wealthy, social climbing woman whose life is changed after a brush with the law almost lands her in prison. Through a series of improbable events, she ends up running one of the most successful post-prison rehabilitation programs in the country. This story is relatable, honest, and so compelling.  I especially appreciate the author’s candor about how much this process transformed her:

“My change was gradual,” she says. “When I first started working with the women, I stopped wearing my mink and my expensive jewelry and clothing because I didn’t want to be ‘that rich lady helping prisoners.’ Then I realized that making money had been my drug — just like crack or heroin or Oxycontin or men. If I wanted the women to give up their addictions, I had to give up mine.”

I want to give the her & every one of her “Loveladies” a hug and a high five. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a story about transformed lives and God coming through in a big way.

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

One thought on “Book Review: Miss Brenda and the Loveladies

  1. Donna Burton says:

    This wonderful book of what God done throught Miss Brenda Spahn, was tremendously written. She put her heart into it, as she does everything she does for the women at the
    Lovelady Center. Reading this book encouraged me to continue down the path I have chosen with God as the center piece. It touches my heart each day to work with the characters in the book, and to know that we all come from the other side of the tracks, but thanks to Miss Brenda Lovelady Spahn’s book and the Lord God Almighty, we can live on the same side of the tracks with everyone else again!
