The Healing Journeys of Love’s Arm In “Songs Of Deliverance”

“Songs of Deliverance” cover
Southern Lit Alliance

(aired Weds 10/13/21)

“Songs of Deliverance” tells the stories of three women and their journeys of healing from abuse, addiction and sex trafficking.

They are among the women helped by Love’s Arm, a nonprofit interdenominational ministry serving Chattanooga and North Georgia for more than fifteen years.

These women told their stories to author and poet Andreana Lefton, who wrote “Songs of Deliverance.”

Tomorrow (Thu 10/14/21) at Noon, Love’s Arm and Southern Lit Alliance will host a virtual launch for the book.

I spoke with Andreana - and Lynda LeVan, executive director of Southern Lit Alliance.
