Rose Gordon Releases MY LIFE AS AN OVER-COMER
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2016

'My Life as an Over-comer': a phenomenal account of a life lived for God, filled with wonder and joy. 'My Life as an Over-comer' is the creation of published author, Rose Gordon, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, and went through many struggles in her life. A single mother that raised three children on her own discovered that there is more to life when it's lived for God. Her testimony of how Jesus delivered her from depression, sicknesses, oppression, and loneliness, led her to share her story to others who are experiencing similar tests. Rose Gordon is a pastor, a prophetess, and a spiritual life coach. She wants both women and men from all over the world, single or married, with children or without children, to experience God for themselves because he is real. There's no limit to what the Lord can do in the lives of many who trust and believe in him. Rose Gordon is a living testimony. All the trials and temptations she has faced and overcome has molded her and shaped her into the woman that God wants her to be. Rose Gordon is an 'overcomer,' and she is also more than a conqueror. Up until this day, God continues to empower her to be all that he wants her to be in life. (more...)
