Janine Maxwell is back again with a book that tells more of Heart for Africa''s amazing work on one of the world's neediest continents. It takes up where her first book, It''s Not Okay With Me, left off. Raw in style and truth, this book digs deeper into the who, what, why, and how of the AIDS pandemic and the plight of millions of orphans left in its wake. Is It Okay With You? challenges each of us to make a choice and then take action. While it is hard to read about children living in abject poverty and abuse, Janine challenges us to not wallow in our own sadness and apathy, but rather to be moved to action and do something.

About the Author
On 9/11 she found herself a part of thousands fleeing New York City. This life-changing event sent Janine on a search for the meaning of life. Her journey took her to Africa where she encountered the AIDS pandemic, hunger and disease. Janine was stirred by the faces of children, mothers and grandmothers fighting daily for their life. She turned from her boardroom savvy to be the voice sounding an alarm for those too weak to cry for help. Together Janine and her husband Ian co-founded Heart For Africa, a faith based organization focusing on Hunger, Orphans, Poverty and Education in Swaziland.
Janine is a graduate of Evangel University. To follow Janine's weekly blog from Swaziland go to http://janinemaxwell.blogspot.com. For more information about Heart for Africa go to www.heartforafrica.org.
