No More Dodging Bullets: A Memoir about Faith, Love, Lessons, and Growth by Amy Herrig

Amy Herrig is the epitome of ‘beating the odds.’ Today, her life is great; she’s happily married, enjoys football, reading, and cooking gourmet meals for her family. But it wasn’t always this way. Since her teens, Amy has battled addictions, fought a 4-year lawsuit with the government that threatened to take everything she had–including her freedom–and triumphed over breast cancer. Amy emerged with a new outlook of gratitude and humility that has transformed her life.

In her memoir No More Dodging Bullets, Herrig recounts her struggle with heroin addiction during her teenage years and, as an adult, an addiction to money. She and her father were the successful owners of a number of businesses, raking in the profits and enjoying all that it could buy when the government slapped them with a lawsuit that threatened to strip them of everything, including their freedom. During that four-year battle, she was served with another notice: she had breast cancer.

Her struggles, she says, have served to provide her with a new perspective and have deepened her faith. “All the bullets I’ve dodged and all the things that have happened made me realize how lucky I am to be alive,” she says.

Today, Herrig volunteers regularly and has founded the nonprofit, Hopeful Tuesdays, to assist the homeless in her community. She and her family enjoy spending time in Alaska, helping to run the family business there and spending time hiking and fishing. A self-professed foodie, she’s frequently hosting dinner parties and delving into meaningful conversations with her close circle of friends.

Review
“The details of a federal jury selection and trial, the government’s rather suspect practices, and what constitutes a legal substance as opposed to an illegal one are well laid-out and fascinating….Amy Herrig’s memoir of a life managing a “head shop” and the high-profile legal and moral battles that ensue, is by turns intriguing, infuriating, and inspiring” – IndieReader

Lies and Love: Cleansing the Heart to Make Room for Radical Love

Lies and Love: Cleansing the Heart to Make Room for Radical Love (Higher Realm Publishing) is a deliberate approach to rid the heart of lingering issues that affect how you think, and limit your capacity to love and be loved. These heart issues or heart “chaos” as Vanessa calls it, includes feeling abandoned, angry, fearful, jealous, holding grudges, being sad, and even hating others. Vanessa says that this chaos will even lie to you, holding you hostage to your past, to keep you from walking in the fullness of who God created you to be.

“What is your heart story?” is the question Vanessa asks in Lies and Love as she shares her own victory over a chaotic heart that started with daddy issues and sexual assault as a teenager. For years, Vanessa questioned her self-worth until God got her attention with his hurricane winds of love and washed away every lie she ever believed. In thirty days, Lies and Love will help you identify your heart chaos, walk you through the cleansing process, and inspire you to receive and give love without limits. Vanessa says the key to unlock your breakthrough and healing is held up in your answer to the question: What is your heart story?

Vanessa D. Werts is an author, military veteran, and minister with a calling to speak value and honor into the lives of women. She has an abiding love to bridge the gap from people’s life experiences to the promises of God. Vanessa is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, and currently resides with her family in a suburb of Washington, DC.
