Brenda Blessing Ratliff's New Book 'A Life Worthwhile-No Life is Ordinary' Tells the True Story of Joy Jenkins and Her Resilience in Moments of Toil and Loss

Recent release "A Life Worthwhile-No Life is Ordinary" from Covenant Books author Brenda Blessing Ratliff is an astounding biography of Joy Jenkins, who exuded faith, courage, resolve, and hope despite the challenges in her life.

Brenda Blessing Ratliff, a member and former officer of the Permian Basin Bookies, a nonprofit writing organization that encourages authors in their craft, has completed her new book “A Life Worthwhile-No Life is Ordinary”, a stirring book about Joy Jenkins and her extraordinary faith, determination, and compassion in times of distress and sickness.

Brenda writes, “The slant-roofed chicken coop only had three sides, but it would work until her father was home long enough to build a real house. Even though it had a dirt floor, it was definitely an upgrade from sleeping in the car. ‘A Life Worthwhile-No Life is Ordinary’ is a true story that chronicles the life of a young East Texas girl as she cares for a sick and dying mother. Homelessness was fairly common during the Great Depression, but assuming the responsibilities as head of the household at age nine was not. The life of Joy Jenkins, an ordinary farm girl, was extraordinary.

"Joy met the love of her life in the third grade when a little redheaded, freckle-faced boy smiled at her. Their lives were so intertwined that her story includes his. After his death, Joy’s solitary existence was altered by a dementia diagnosis. The book includes details of her children’s journey as they struggled through the devastation of each stage of this disease and made decisions on her behalf. It is a must read for families who have loved ones facing Alzheimer’s, dementia, or any other debilitating mental disease. It will make you smile, laugh, and cry.”
