Overview

From Dust to Glory by Kiki Lin

What is innocence? It takes many shapes… it can be said that innocence is a benevolent form of ignorance. In each stage of our lives, then, we can have different kinds of innocence – as we grow and learn there will always be things we don’t know. This biography is a captivating journey through one woman’s consecutive stages of innocence in varied spheres: material wealth, foreign travels, romantic relationships and spiritual discernment. In an American society often fascinated by countries that can be seen as exotic and enchanting from a distance, this book will impact readers with what is not seen. Readers will experience Taiwan as the Taiwanese do, learning how different we are, but also learning how much we have in common as the children of Elohim (God). Readers will learn Kitty’s lessons, feel her pain, celebrate her triumphs and most importantly, meet her Maker.

This book is based on the authentic, true life of Kitty, a fictitious name for the author, and insightful accounts of the little known Las Vegas insider sex industry. If even one woman or man from anywhere in the world would read this book, and think twice before reducing themselves to this lifestyle; it will be a blessing, and this book would have served its purpose: to inform, enlighten and hopefully bless those individuals who are considering making “big” money in this sex industry.

Born one of seven children, and rising out of abject poverty, Kiki Forest established herself as one of Taiwan’s most successful real estate sales professionals in the 1990s in the infancy of her career, earning millions of dollars by the age of 22.

At present, the author is the Senior Executive Vice President of CKBMAX, the global operational headquarters of CKB Group, located in Hong Kong, China.

This is a great biography and should be read by future generations as a pivotal, challenging, and indispensable work. The theme is redemption-key to most great books, stories, movies, and especially personal works. DR SAMUEL Johnson said Even God does not presume TO Judge a man until he has reached the END of his days. This is a key component of KIKI's redemption story. While most sex workers have some concept of “personal redemption”, their occupation is temporary and they will soon have success in business+family-some don't make it, as Kiki endured the loss of two friends in a row. She also went through a “succession of guys”who were mean to her. That and the “bad” that comes from “Looking4Love-in all the wrong places” being taken for numerous illicit “rides” almost costing her life taught her a need for redemption. Though such women may go from rich-to rock bottom-this is so trite-NotBworth50-let alone400 pages of a great book. It needed the theme of finding the One to Whom she looked judiciously and surrendered unconditionally. Undergoing numerous miseries and heartbreaks she tells (explicitly in some places) always heartfelt without which she may not have reached out and been saved body, mind,+soul. We know from the cover it is about a woman who went through the Vegas sex industry. Through repentance-IN Jesus-+HIS Finished work on the Cross she turned from VEGAS Sex worker to successful servant in the Kingdom of God. Now she heads a MinistryW3-locations turning people from the world-TO God. SEE-Prov.13:12 From her upbringing in Taiwan she learned anything was possible. From her service to Jesus she knows success is possible through surrender and devotion. In her relatively Short life-she's been a successful real estate agent, entrepreneur, owner of a thriving massage business, but was-/wo peace of mind. While massage, entertaining in nightclubs, and distributing literature are legal aspects-she like many branched out into borderline&illegal ones-she was used for various times and services, and in spite of being paid wonderfully, she knew such glory is fleeting. She broke ground on this continent, putting pictures of beautiful women in the Yellow Pages, it is now a staple in Vegas+other cities. Knowing diversity in guests requires it in workers, she staffed liberally, expecting men to ask often for blonds, Asians, or busty women. Knowing intimately the tension between her lucrative-”Wildside” and a tourist city-she chose refuge in the One Who gives salvation to those who love+trust Him. This timeless book-RANKS W few biographies-FRED Douglass' Narrative of an American Slave, David Wilkerson's THE CROSS+T Switchblade Nicky Cruz'-RUN Baby RUN-and a testimony of the leadership of women-SARAH Palin'S GOING Rogue. Any1-unsure of his or her relationship w/-God duties toward your fellowman, and whether to believe the Bible-READ THIS book-before making final decisions-IT may change your life. By Primus S. Butler
