9780983012962: Our Southern Breeze: We once were lost . . . but now we’re found

 As the fraternal twin of Deborah (Short) Hall (from Same Kind of Different as Me), I knew her like no one else could. And the inspiring story I share in Our Southern Breeze is like no other story that could be told: From growing up forever in transition as our family moved from one Texas oil camp to another, to cheating in school to try to win the approval of my parents . . . from facing all kinds of abuse of a troubled father as a child, to the disappointment of a failed marriage as an adult . . . from the deep pit of depression to suicide attempts, my life was a series of bad situations, poor choices, and worse consequences. My sister saw this, and after years of estrangement, held out a hand for me to hold . . . once again. It was at the Anaheim Vineyard conference in 1990 that God, through the words of a man, promised to send a southern breeze over Deborah and me. Neither of us could have ever imagined what that would look like and how many people would eventually be touched by it.

About the Author:

 For over nineteen years Daphene “DJ” Jones has run DJ Consultants, Inc., a company that focuses on helping overwhelmed clients utilize technology to manage their time and information. Working with Fortune 500 companies, she has gained a reputation for providing simple solutions to improve efficiency and productivity in the workplace.
 
When Same Kind of Different As Me was released, many people asked her why she didn’t write her own story about growing up with “Miss Debbie.” She reviewed the journals she had kept and began to see how much Deborah’s life had influenced hers. Mustering up the courage to embark on a new journey, she started the first draft. Her story is about her fight with depression, fear, and attempted suicide, and the amazing way that God gives second chances to His children. This story of learning to live without her beloved twin and of experiencing the amazing restoration of their relationship, along with many others in her family, is sure to inspire. She and her husband, married since 2003, live in Suwanee, Georgia with their precious border collie, Hanna. Daphene enjoys painting, working out, swimming, and spending time with her children and seven grandchildren.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

“I need to be alone for a while,” I whispered to her and headed back to our room, not waiting for a reply. I was desperate to get alone with God and pour out my heart to Him. I unlocked the door to our room and hurried inside. Alone, with the light off and curtains pulled, I fell on the floor weeping. I wept for my lost innocence and my ruined childhood. I wept for the love that died with my marriage. I wept for the mother I had not been to my babies. I cried out to God about the pain that had driven me to attempt suicide. I just opened up my heart, right there on the floor of that hotel room, and poured out all of the hurt and sorrow and guilt and bitterness until I was completely exhausted, empty, and quieted.
