Something About Me and My Book:
Jackie Carpenter: Businesswoman, Volunteer and Reluctant Author

Jackie Carpenter never intended to become an author. And neither did she ever expect to be a resource for persons facing a crisis in life. But Jackie took the crisis in her life, and subsequent miracle, and wove it into a dramatic and heart-wrenching story – The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle is Psalm 91.
And the Reluctant Author followed up with still another book, Georgia Justice: A Journey To Faith – a remarkable guide on how to build faith when overcome by doubt, depression and tragic events.
A native of Newnan, GA, who has lived in Ellaville, GA, since 1993, Carpenter is married with two married sons and four grandchildren. Until tragedy struck, Jackie Carpenter was living a busy and fulfilled life working as office manager for husband Larry’s medical imaging company in Ellaville, GA, as church organist, assistant Sunday School teacher, social activity director for a senior adult Sunday School class, and as wife, mother and grandmother.
Jackie designed her dream home four years ago, turned her sketches over to an architect, and son Jason Veitch built it for her. Placed in the middle of a wooded area, the home is round with an indoor pool that serves as a centerpiece. She enjoys scrapbooking and designing, and she and husband Larry have travelled all over the world. A canine lover, she also is mom to three dogs.
Then on June 27, 2008, everything changed. “I had no problems of any kind,” recalls Jackie. “No health problems, no financial problems, no kids-out-of-control problems. Life could not have been better, and then the call came at 7 a.m.; it was Steph, my daughter-in-law, crying and screaming into the phone: ‘Jackie, the man died, Jason has been arrested, taken to jail and charged with Felony Murder. They also may arrest my daddy’.”
The tragedy led to a walk of faith, fueled by the discovery of the Book of Psalms, that ended in a miracle. The story of the faith walk, discovery, and miracle is told in The Bridge, a compelling can’t put down book that offers a way out for individuals drowning in sorrow, grief, fear, anger or shame. The story of how a tormented mother made a critical decision that allowed God to deliver a miracle is told in Georgia Justice. “God took The Bridge and used it to touch so many hurting people,” says the author. “He put me on four television shows, numerous radio interviews, in newspaper articles, and put my book in hospitals throughout America where it can be picked up by people in need. He has great plans for this Reluctant Author and those plans included using me so He could also write Georgia Justice!
