Deerfield, Illinois – When most young people plan what they’ll do when “all grown up”, most imagine status, power and enough money to afford them true freedom. Illinois’ Jane Zarse lived that dream but, like millions of Americans, rapidly destroyed it all through the lure and fierce grip of alcoholism.
Thankfully, Zarse is still here today to tell her story, thanks to a unique spiritual awakening that saw her accept God and His word into her life for the first time. In ‘Love and Compassion is My Religion (A Beginner's Book into Spirituality)’, Zarse tells her raw and uninhibited story in a way that will ultimately change lives.
Jane Zarse was rich and privileged. From prep school to Boston University to a prime spot at the Chicago's Options Exchange trading, she'd found the recipe for success.
But wrapped up in the excess of alcoholism, she felt nothing.
Zarse shares the most personal details of her descent into alcoholism and her eventual crawl back in 'Love and Compassion is My Religion', an inspirational memoir dedicated to showing others how the power of God's love can change you. Struggling through in an alcohol-induced daze, she lost it all - including her marriage, her mother, and even more, before she finally decided to seek help.
“I can tell you now – when I was young, I didn’t just think I had it all, I knew I did,” explains Zarse. “I carried that same success into my early adult years after graduating from University. I suppose I became complacent and fell into a culture of excess, because to say I crashed down and hit rock-bottom is an understatement.”
Continuing, “The worse thing is that, when you’re caught in addiction’s vicious circle, you just can’t see a way out. But when I found God, I quickly came to realize that there was an exit door, if I was willing to embrace His love and compassion. I wasn’t a heavily spiritual person before, but now credit it with the only thing that saved me.”
Zarse believes that her memoir will change the lives of millions of readers around the world.
“There is nobody that this book can’t influence. From those caught in their own addiction cycles to those exploring their spirituality for the first time, and even people with no spiritual leanings who just want to briefly experience life from another person’s point of view. God’s love knows no boundaries and, after reading my book, every reader will understand this boldly.”
‘Love and Compassion is My Religion (A Beginner's Book into Spirituality)’ is due for imminent release.
