Her mission is to empower readers to overcome the effects of these all-too-common situations and to continue to live a fulfilled life.

“My desire is for the reader to realize that they are not alone when it comes to church hurt experiences, and hopefully share some ways to overcome the hurt,” states the author. “Church hurt is a topic that is not widely discussed but is widely experienced.”

Rev. Robin Elaine Eldridge is a native of Oakland, California. Her ministry is quite expansive and includes being an ordained minister, preaching the gospel, speaking at conferences, serving as a retreat facilitator, and conducting gospel music workshops around the country. The author adds, "God had to help me overcome and understand why I had to go through what I went through, so I believe my personal experiences give me expertise in this area. Before I understood my experiences, I used to ask God ‘Why?’ Now that I understand the experiences, I tell God, ‘Thank you!’"
