The Paper Bag is a true story of Jackie Vann-wife of Roger Vann, co-pastor of Jesus People Church in the 1970s and 80s-after she discovered the shocking contents inside a paper bag in their home. She writes honestly yet honorably of the events that took her life from a straight path to success to a detour down a road she did not want to travel. This journey ultimately touched the deepest place of her heart, showing her the depths of God's love in spite of many sins and shortcomings. Through this book you will not only hear of God's grace from triumphs to tragedies and from unforgiveness to forgiveness, but learn how you, too, can extract hope from hopelessness and experience renewed faith in God and restoration after loss.

About the Author

Ms. Jacqueline Vann S.T., R.N., was born and raised in a typical Minnesota family with a working father and stay-at-home mom. Her life was fairly normal and uneventful until she married Roger Vann who eventually became co-pastor of Jesus People Church-one of the largest churches in the nation-and an evangelist around the world. Roger and Jackie enjoyed the success that comes as the result of a thriving ministry from 1970 through 1986 until it all unraveled. She overcame divorce, abandonment, homelessness, financial ruin, and family crisis as she cleaved to God for her strength. Jackie's heart is to help others discover who God truly is and find hope in any situation that seems hopeless.
