Press Release Body: We've heard the clichs: "All that glitters ain't gold", "Money
can't buy happiness", and "Money is the root of all evil". So why do many people
still continue to pursue the American Dream of wealth or the desire to "get rich
quick"? While having an abundance of money can make some things easier in life,
proceed with caution-the view at the top is not always as fabulous as it appears.
Until tragedy strikes, no one really knows what's going on behind the doors of the
10,000 square foot Beverly Hills home? What lies in the soul underneath the
designer labeled clothes? Or how much effort it takes a celebrity to smile for the
camera with a broken spirit? The recent spotlight on celebrities such as Paris
Hilton, Anna Nicole Smith, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan, exemplifies how
happiness within cannot be defined simply by material possessions.

In Blessings of Purpose, tragedy causes Lia Conrad to put the reckless ways of her
teenage years behind and give her life to Christ. At 25 years old, she lives a
content, Christian life mentoring to the youth as a high school counselor and youth
ministry leader at church. Fulfilling God's purpose gave her peace in life.
Then-when she wasn\'t looking- love finds her. Lia meets Nigel Braxton, a
27-year-old aspiring movie producer and Christian from Los Angeles. When Nigel gets
his big break in the movie industry, he wants to share his fortune and life with
Lia. Once married, they are confronted with situations that cause a struggle
between their luxurious Hollywood lifestyle and commitment to God. Through trials
and tribulations comes their revelation of what it truly means to be blessed.

Alicia Hill Jones is one of the newest pens in Christian fiction. Despite being
labeled as fiction, biblical scripture inspires her work, helping to create stories
of faith as encouragement for overcoming life's everyday struggles. Alicia
currently lives in Richmond, VA with her husband and two daughters.
