Tattooed by Jesus

From her earliest memories in Bloomington, Illinois, fear tattooed Bonnie's soul. Threats from a drunk uncle and a hellish encounter in a cold bedroom left her searching for good. Mr. Sun and open spaces gave her glimpses of another world, a world of hope she could never quite touch.

Not finding the light she longed for, Bonnie filled her teenage years with anger, rebellion, and a vow to shake off her past. Booze didn't help. Drugs, either...but they gave her the highs she craved. Too bad she always came down. A marriage out of her league and a move to L.A. took Bonnie places she'd never imagined, but it was never enough. When Hollywood dreams fizzled, life back in Illinois and a search for God brought her to the brink of a black abyss. She would find truth...or die trying.

In this poignant story of how one soul found Jesus to be so much more than a cuss word, experience how a West Side Bloomington addict birthed the Jesus House, a place where life's tattoos become God's materials for transformation.
