A rose is one of the most beautiful flowers known to man. The fragrance gives off such a gentle odor that the aroma, like smoke, curls around your head. The stem, of course, is prickly and unknowingly sticks your finger. Life can be beautiful like a rose but it can prick you to draw blood. Up Came a Rose is a kind of courage, strength, and hope that Barbara Scott endured during the times of her life. Barbara Scott grew up in Gary, Indiana, once the murder capital of the USA. She had the ability to raise a family of three girls during the violent drug era. While life dealt her some rough cards, she was a hard-working African American who continued her education to become a registered nurse. As an African American in a predominately black community, she wanted to make a difference. Later she changed careers and began studying social work. Barbara Scott has learned the power of prayer. Through prayer she persevered through trials, tribulations, and divorce. She learned to depend on God, the Master, in every situation. During those times, she discovered her purpose and her road to a destiny with a future and a hope. People go through real things, but we have a real God who has real answers. He will turn your pain into a promise. He will raise up a rose out of the wilderness. He will exchange your weakness for strength. Up Came a Rose is a book that will lead you to a victorious life.
