When a Good God Allows Rape

I met the author a couple of times in mommy events but I didn't get the courage to talk to her. I was intimidated by her beauty.  She sat beside me  at the  Concertus event for Singin' in the Rain so even if I still felt intimidated I had no choice but to converse with her. I'm normally not a shy type but she's amazingly lovely I didn't know what to say.

Then I saw her again last week at OMF's Launch of new and inspiring books. Teacher Joy is the author of the book When a Good God Allows Rape. I asked her if this is her story and she said yes. I bought her book and  have her signed. Teacher Joy's blog is

Honestly, from all the books launched that night, it was the only book I didn't fancy because I was shocked and intrigued by the title. I was wrong.  When a Good God Allows Rape by Teacher Joy  Tan
-Chi Mendoza is a moving and inspiring book. It is the first autobiographical account of her  tragedy, the events that followed, and God’s hand in all of it.

 At ₱125.00, I highly recommend this book to help and inspire those who suffered the same.

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
 whenever you face trials of many kinds, 
 because you know that the testing of your faith
 develops perseverance."
