How To Get To The Palace From Your Prison
The Biblical story of Joseph is used to uncover a 14-Step Recovery Plan to overcome loneliness, depression, discrimination, barrenness and abuse.
The author’s spiritual and psychological analysis of Joseph’s trials, tribulations, and triumphs reveals to the reader how to achieve the promises of God and arrive at that place of shalom, the Hebrew word for peace. Farrar-Rosemon defines the word to mean “nothing missing and nothing broken” in the reader’s life. The author draws on her background as a broker and psychiatric social worker and shares how her personal tragedies and those of other individuals and groups were resolved using this 14-Step Program. This book details statistics on depression, unemployment, abuse, addictions, miscarriage, abortion, HIV/AIDS, discrimination and other timely social and psychological ills. The Appendix contains national toll-free 800 resource numbers for individuals and groups to connect with so that they can begin the healing process.
The world that we live in today has become increasingly unstable, unsafe, and a violent place to live in. Advances in science, medicine and technology are failing to bring about peace and security in the world. Western society appears to be coming apart at the seams as we allocate more money for prisons, national defense, and space exploration. Statistics on depression, suicide, unemployment, discrimination, and domestic and child abuse are alarming, and point to a menacing cancer that is eating away at the fabric of our families, and Western society. The canary sent into the mine of our society is dying by the minute. The handwriting is not only on the walls of our homes, but also its fulfilled prophecy - the bodies of unloved sons and daughters lie dead beneath the graffiti on our streets.
Where is the physician that will resurrect individuals that have let their dreams, prophecies, and aspirations die? Where is the physician that will rise and be healed, and heal others? Where is the physician that will heal the walking wounded that are still alive and have a small measure of hope?
How to GET to the PALACE from YOUR PRISON reveals how Joseph was inspired by the Great Physician, achieved the promises of God, and arrived at that place of shalom in his mind, body, and spirit.

“How To Get To The Palace From Your Prison uses the Biblical story of Joseph to create a 14-Step Plan to overcome situations that cause people to be stressed, depressed, and less successful in life. The story of Joseph’s trials, tribulations, and triumphs are used to ‘reveal to the [reader] how to achieve the promises of God and arrive at that place of shalom, the Hebrew word for peace.’ Farrar-Rosemon uses the word to mean ‘nothing missing and nothing broken’ in the reader’s life.
Clearly, the author is a strong Christian who found a way to combine her social work skills and business experience with Biblical teachings. This book is a wonderful addition to self-help Christian literature, and to the field of Christian social work and counseling. Readers of all faiths will benefit from the universal appeal of the book. Whatever the religious position of the reader, the author’s interpretation of the story of Joseph is well worth the read.”
