If happiness has a hiding place, Roxane Battle may have found it.

As a new mom with a divorce decree and a reporting job on the five o'clock news, she landed on a few thorns among the roses as she learned to raise a child by herself while trying to keep it together in front of the camera. Guided by a strong belief things could, and would, get better, Roxane shed a few tears and found a lot of joy. Pockets of joy are what she calls them--moments where it feels like every thing is going to be okay.

With a little bit of humor and lots of grace, Roxane shares the intimate and private details of her very public life. With stories that resonate with authenticity and truth, Roxane opens up to candidly reveal her life as a single mom, showing how she found her way by making decisions in the name of dignity, values, and faith.

From the Inside Flap:

"In this delightfully honest book, we cheer for Roxane as she makes difficult and wise choices--and willingly pays the price professionally--in an effort to forge work-life balance and maintain the God-honoring priorities of being a great parent. Her refreshing example in our success-crazed culture is an inspiration to women and men everywhere!" --Deborah Smith Pegues, international speaker and best-selling author, "30 Days To Taming Your Tongue" "'Pockets of Joy' is candid, beautifully written, and easy to read. It is Roxane's story of finding those pockets of joy during an extremely difficult season in her life. Whether you're a single mom or not, you will find yourself quickly drawn in, and learning invaluable life lessons along the way." --Pastor Janet Conley, Cottonwood Church "'Pockets of Joy' is for anyone who has experienced that deep—and often dark—realization that your life hasn't gone the way they planned. It's for anyone who never expected to end up where they are. It's for anyone who's thinking about giving up. If that's you, then this book is what you need right now." --Kathleen Cooke, cofounder, Cooke Pictures and Influence Lab
