This book is for every woman who feels trapped in a relationship that she doesn't feel she can escape from.  It's for every woman who doesn't feel that anyone understands the hell she lives in daily.  It's for every woman seeking healing and deliverance from the prison that she's built around herself.  This book is for YOU!   As you read each chapter, I pray that you feel God's loving arms around you.  I pray that you hear him saying, "I am here, please allow me to heal your broken heart."
Tyria D. Jones has been happily married for 7 years to the love of her life. She is the mother of 4 beautiful young ladies and 3 handsome young men. She also has 5 adorable grandbabies. Her life is filled with overflowing joy, but it hasn't always been so happy or easy. She struggled for most of her life trying to find out who God created her to be. What was her purpose in life? What made her special in God's eyes? It wasn't until she started looking at herself the way that God does that she realized she had a story to share. She realized that her purpose was in that story. One day her husband encouraged her to write a book. In June 2015, she started writing A Crown of Beauty for Ashes. It took a lot of courage for her to share this story. There were times she was afraid to be transparent, but it is what God required. So she surrendered all to allow Him to use her for His work. As she wrote God healed her of every deep hurt and now she is free. You can also break the chains that have you bound. Tyria has always had a ministry for women and served in various leadership roles over the past ten years; however, it is through the pain that she overcame in her own life that God has allowed her to write this book. It is her desire that you will gain deliverance and freedom. It is also her desire to one day start the Tyria Jones Foundation for Women so that others will be able to live a life of freedom. Jesus came that we would have life more abundantly. This is her prayer for each of you. Each of you have a story to share! It's time to walk in your purpose.
