Welcome to The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump. It’s a fish out of water story about how God turns 32-year-old Julie’s manicured, pedicured, self-absorbed designer life upside down.
Julie, a nominal Christian, heads to New York for a weekend shopping binge. On a deserted train, she sits next to a stranger who turns out to be Jesus. After a wonderful, healing conversation she agrees to His request to, “feed My lambs.” When she gets off the train she’s in India.
Her charmed life is shattered–she must care for 12 “filthy orphans” living on a dump before she can return to her comfortable life. She lives on the street and overwhelming new challenges arise daily. While squatting in an alley, going to the bathroom, an orphan, named Ravi, steals her designer purse. Unbeknownst to Julie, Ravi, who speaks English, holds the key to her communicating with the other orphans.
Will Julie learn 1) to trust the Lord when nothing is in her control? 2) that she doesn’t have to perform to be loved? and 3) that her life is built on a shaky foundation? Can she protect the orphans from a predator who steals and maims children and sends them out to beg? How will God provide food when her wallet is stolen? Can she find safe homes for the children?
The answers to these questions will also be the answers to many of your questions about God, life and yourself. Pick up a copy of The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump and jump into a great adventure!

Brimming with wisdom and spiritual insight, this classic memoir of the devotional life witnesses to the joy available to all who will seek Him.
Before a wild horse can be of service to his master, he must be broken. The same is true of us.
