Here's the cover for our newest book, Teresa Richenberger's inspiring memoir Sold to the Highest Bidder. The book is currently in final preparations to be offered from DCP, and Teresa, who I've found to be a bottomless source of enthusiasm, is raring at the bit to get it into your hands, dear DCP readers.
Before you decide on your course of action, check out the back cover copy:
From using drugs at a very young age and becoming a runaway at the age of 16, Teresa had no way to take care of herself. She literally felt forced to sell her body for a place to stay. Thinking this was the path to take to support herself, she answered a "Dancers Wanted" ad in the local newspaper and became an exotic dancer at the age of 17. In her mind, there was no turning back now.
But, by the age of 28, Teresa had reached her breaking point. She knew something had to change because she could not go on like this; she was dying. After being trapped for almost 12 years in strip clubs and prostitution, she had lost herself.
One day while looking in another newspaper, she answered a completely different kind of ad -- a church ad to come visit. Teresa went to church that night and that was where her healing process began! She now lives her life for Christ and helps others to overcome their painful past.
Teresa discovered the freedom to live victoriously by applying God's Word to her life. From her battle with learning to trust and love again AND the struggles of everyday life, she desires to help others do the same. She is now an advocate for hurting women and girls in the sex trade. She wants to help them discover their true value and self worth. She does know the way out of hell because she used to live there!
God has provided Teresa with many opportunities to share her testimony with this life-changing message of the Gospel. She has a real life example with an incredible testimony of the dynamic, redeeming work of Jesus Christ!
