About the Author

Jan Martinez' passion is to bring the Word of life to a hurting, dark world-one she entered reluctantly after a violent rape. Her journey back to life led her to Christ and to becoming a psychotherapist among addicts, prostitutes, and the poor. With Master's degrees in public health and counseling, she founded a job-training project called Christ Kitchen, which attracts low-income women to work, Bible study and support with volunteers from local churches. Jan received a Doctorate in Ministry researching discipleship with the poor and is an adjunct professor at Whitworth University. She is married to Felix Martinez, a physician, and they have two beautiful children, Jake and Rose, both adopted as babies from Korea. They've served in medical missions in Kenya, Nepal and Viet Nam and go fly fishing together every chance they get.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Jan Martinez has taken two towns, Sychar and Spokane; two meeting places, Jacob’s Well and Christ’s Kitchen; and Jesus, and skillfully woven them into stunning tapestry of hope for women in poverty. Read this, and thank God for this companion in the faith who has made it her vocation to mentor women out of poverty and into a life full of hope.” —Eugene H. Peterson, professor of spiritual theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC; translator of The Message.

"This book documents the silent life screams of broken, mangled, misused women. As the result of Jan’s own encounter with evil treatment and her healing through the living Christ, she has been able to help so many women match the torn, jagged pieces of their experiences with the giving grace of a mending, merciful, and transforming God. Once Jan knew the Jesus who “healed her broken image and changed her everything,” she put pen to paper and wrote a book that must be read. Her passionate insistence to make sure that all who come within the orbit of her life encounter the healer, transformer, and friend whose name is Christ brings a practical life challenge for good and for God to all—men and women alike. Buy this book, read this book, and allow this book to read you. When you are finished, you will wonder what on earth you were doing going shopping!" -Jill Briscoe, popular international Bible teacher and author of over forty books, including 8 Choices That Will Change a Woman’s Life and Out of the Storm and Into God’s Arms
