More About the Author

My name is Jackie Carpenter, and I am the author of:
"The Bridge" Between Cell Block A and a Miracle is Psalm 91 and
Georgia Justice: Journey To Faith

A Reporter asked me yesterday, what inspired you to give the book this Title?

It is a very unique Title, but that is because God gave it the Title and not Jackie. Before God inspired me to write the book, He gave it the Title. My family was miring down in quick sand with no hope of survival from this nightmare. Jason was in "Cell Block A" (that is where the murderers are located), only he had not murdered anyone. In Cell Block A they wear red and white stripes, symbolizing "Murderer" worst of the worst.

Has the Jury reached a verdict? We have your Honor! Will the defendant please rise....As my son stood there with his life dangling out over a cliff, outside of God, we had no Hope. But at 3:40 in the afternoon, 3rd floor Courtroom at the Coweta County Courthouse, GOD SHOWED UP WITH A "MIRACLE".

The Miracle that our family had been praying for over 10 long months. "We the Jury, find the Defendant, NOT GUILTY!

God spoke to my heart 2 months after the Trial. He said "Jackie, what is it that links these 2 things together (Cell Block A and a Miracle)? What is that Bridge between Cell Block A and that Miracle?" And it HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS...that Bridge is Psalm 91 (God's Shield of Protection Over Our Lives). I had been holding on to and claiming that promise for 10 months and that was the Bridge that God was showing me. I lived in the Book of Psalms for 10 months. Psalms 91 had been my "Life Support" for 10 months, and now it had brought me back to Life!



I am married to a wonderful man. His name is Larry Carpenter. He's my Rock! He is the best husband in the world and the best step-dad the world has ever known. We have four grandchildren: Hannah, Anna Grace, Patience and JJ. But never let me forget: we also have 3 dog children: Chloe' Blackie and Bojangles. LIFE IS GOOD ONCE AGAIN! Thank you Jesus for Psalm 91 (My Bridge to My Miracle) Amen

Jackie Carpenter is a small town girl born and raised in Newnan, Georgia. Having been raised by her loving Christian parents, Jack and Mary Jo Duncan, Jackie and her sister Susie had a beautiful childhood. Spending lots of quality family time participating in church services, church related activities, backyard barbeques, swimming in the creek, walking barefoot through the woods, just having fun. There was no greater childhood than what she experienced in this small town.

Many years later Jackie found herself divorced, raising two sons on her own while working as an Administrative Assistant in Newnan Hospital. The hospital was looking at going into a Joint Venture with Larry Carpenter for Mobile MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) service. Newnan Hospital got MRI service and Jackie got remarried, worked out great for both parties!

Jackie moved to Ellaville, Georgia and became the Office Manager to her husband Larry Carpenter, President/Owner of Diversified Imaging Services. They have been working side by side since 1995. They work hard, and they play hard. They have traveled all over the world and still find themselves honeymooning 16 years later. In 2008 Larry built Jackie's dream house "Carpenter Place" in seclusion behind her parent's home in Newnan, Georgia. It is her "week-end retreat" where she still continues to spend quality time with her family. Now she takes those barefoot walks through the woods with her four grandchildren.

Jackie refers to herself as a "Small town Cinderella". She never knew life could be so good until her Prince Charming showed up at Newnan Hospital. . .and now their plan is to "Live happily ever after".

The End!

REVIEWS & PRAISE FOR "The Bridge" By Jackie Carpenter

"From the moment "THE BRIDGE" arrived in my mailbox,
I thought of the book as a special gift.
Along with the book came a gold pin titled Psalm 91,!
"THE BRIDGE" taught me the importance of holding God's eternal and able hand throughout the ordeals of life.
If there is any way you have the chance to read "THE BRIDGE," do read it.
It's a prayerful book from a loving mother's heart"
-- Leola Norman
Love To Read

"Overall, this book was genuine. It even came with a little pin.
There is also an emphasis on trusting in the Lord, along with important Bible quotations from the Book of Psalms. The author even includes a note at the end about accepting Jesus for salvation."
-- Teresa Konopka
Teresa Konopka's Book Reviews

"The Bridge is a book for people who believe in miracles. It is also for people who need to be reminded that during troubling times,
God is not the guilty party. Even devout Christians sometimes need to be reminded that their strength is in the Lord, and The Bridge serves as that reminder."
--Miss Bob Etier
Blog Critics

"People of deep religious belief will find it an affirmation. Divine intervention and influence is credited for the strength to get through the ordeal as well as the favorable verdict of not guilty on all counts."
-- Charles Ashbacher

"This powerful story of an accidental death and the unwavering faith of a mother's love and belief in the Psalms will rivet the reader.
If you want to hear about a "miracle" and the effect the power of prayer can have on a family
you will be very interested in this mother's story!"
-- Deb Fowler

"The Bridge clearly demonstrates that God still performs miracles in the 21st century. A key point is that when bad things happen it's better to trust God than to blame Him. The story also reveals that it is certainly possible to survive a tragedy without losing faith."
--Emory Daniels
Book Reviews

"This is a good, inspirational story... you can absolutely see the conviction in her [Jackie's] heart that God's love and grace alone brought her through this difficult time...
she simply wants to share her miracle with you."
Book Pleasures

"Anyone going through a struggle that seems desperate or that is facing a sentence that looms inevitable will take courage from reading Jackie Carpenter's account of her son's incarceration and eventual exoneration. She gives God the glory and provides the scriptures that her family clung to throughout this devastating ordeal."
-- Maggie Harding

"This is a story of the power of prayer and unyielding faith. I read this book in a little over an hour, but the message was very powerful. If you haven't read this book, you're missing a great testimony."
--Reading at The Beach

"Jackie Carpenter's faith in her son and in her God is genuine. This comes through clearly in her writing. This is a book that will bring encouragement to anyone who has experienced an injustice in a like or similar circumstance. Heart wrenching and heart warming. A memorable reading experience"
--Richard R. Blake
Amazon Top 500 Reviewer

"As a reader of this true story you will cringe, wonder, worry, but if you are a believer, you will always keep God's love and faith in your mind and body. The book is easy to read but it exudes faith throughout and you will gain that while reading."
--Cy Hilterman

Title: Georgia Justice: Journey to Faith
Author: Jackie Carpenter
Publisher: Xulon Press
ISBN: 978-1-61215-557-9

"For 10 months I wrestled with the `what if' factor. What if God doesn't help us? What if God lets Jason go to prison even though he is innocent? It was all of those "what if" questions that weakened my faith. It was only when I stopped questioning God and started trusting God that I obtained peace!" Jackie Carpenter explains in her book, "Georgia Justice: Journey to Faith."

This hardbound book contains one hundred and fifty pages, formatted in double-spaced manuscript style so can be easily read in one to two hours. Noted as a sequel to the author's book, The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle is Psalm 91, it is more of a reiteration of her in-depth, personal conflict during the ten month period when the author's son was arrested and accused of five counts including felony murder. With mostly mentioning how she dealt with Satan's onslaught of attacks throughout the ordeal, the book is geared toward Christians or those going through their own tribulations, wanting to totally rely and trust in God's will. There are several poorly cut, pasted and barely readable newspaper articles among the chapters.

In this second book, Carpenter retells the story of her son's accidental shooting of a man at a construction site and how she personally dealt with the anger, pain and frustration during the arrest and trial. However, this book concentrates heavily on her private experiences dealing with the feeling that she had been stung, stalked and attacked repeatedly on her body, mind and family by the deceiver himself, Satan.

Format: Paperback
Friday, April 17, 2009 The Time-Herald of Newman, Georgia carried the headline "Vetch Cleared of All Charges." "Georgia Justice" is the story of the ten month journey to faith experienced by the family of Jason Vetch as told by his mother Jackie Carpenter.

After being the victim of seventeen copper thefts on his construction job sites, Vetch was guarding his property. In the early morning hours of June 28, 2008 another planned robbery was in process. Jason attempted a citizen's arrest when an accidental firing of his gun wounded one of the alleged thieves. Hours later the man died at the hospital and Jason was taken into custody. At the arraignment that followed Jason was charged with felony murder as well as four other serious charges.

Carpenter's earlier book "The Bridge" goes into detail regarding all the events that transpired on the night of June 28, 2008 and the trial that took place in April of 2009. "Georgia Justice" is Jackie's story of the onslaught of her spiritual battle, the frustration and tears she endured right up to the time the decision of jury was announced. "Not guilty on all five counts."

Jackie tells of her regular visits to her prayer closet to find release from the onslaught of Satan as he attacked her spiritually, mentally, and physically. There may be readers who feel Jackie's description of her roller coaster ride of emotions is repetitive but anyone who has experienced a visit with their son or daughter separated by a partition of prison glass will understand Jackie's heartbreak as she watched the tears rolling down her son Jason's cheeks on her first visit after his arrest.

Jason's exoneration is an affirmation of the power of prayer and the effectiveness of a prayer chain ministry.

GEORGIA JUSTICE: "JOURNEY TO FAITH" by Jackie Carpenter is the sequel to: The Bridge: Between Cell Block A and a Miracle is: Psalm 91 and is another thought provoking story. It is based on actual events of the murder and theft trial of Jason Veitch,the after effects of the trial and the police. It is told by Jackie Carpenter,Jason's mother. It is her perceptive of the events of the trial and its after effects. How she held together during this horrific time in her family's lives is a miracle in itself. She has had her share of tragic events,with her family and her faith she made it through. Another thought provoking story that could and well may happen to any of us or a family member. This story makes you look differently at several things including your faith in the justice system,and your own faith. I would recommend this title for anyone who enjoys learning more about the justice system,and spiritual. Received for an honest review from the author.

A must read for every household. How Jackie could hold together at the time of her son's arrest and trial days is beyond me. She is truly a great Christian who loves the Lord.

Format: Paperback
As someone who had not only read Jackie Carpenter's first book (THE BRIDGE) and interviewed her on the radio, I was curious as to how she could better explain to us the situation that tested her faith and that of our family almost 3 years ago. What I learned in GEORGIA JUSTICE: Journey To Faith is that her experience was much more about God's dealing with her than the way he was dealing with her son!

You see, it was Jackie's son Jason that was on trial physically, but Jackie was the one being tested and tried in the spiritual realm, and it was not going to be a trial without its setbacks. In the book Jackie praises the faith of her son who seemed to never waver that he would come out on the bright side of the storm he was in the middle of. For Jackie, she wrestled to understand why her family was having to go through through the test in the first place. At times becoming impatient, she tried to go about seeking a positive result on her own, but this only led to frustration and physical distress. It wasn't until she fully accepted that having faith and putting that faith in action are two different functions for people of faith.

It does no good to question why God allows some things to happen. It is our responsibility as people of faith to keep focused on the cause of our joy no matter what goes on from day to day. For Jackie this became a process, assisted in large part by her reading and applying the word of God. It also has to do with remembered that it isn't until we are truly tested that we find out where we are in our relationship with God and how far we are willing to trust him.

Written honestly and with the aim of helping others through their own trials, GEORGIA JUSTICE: Journey To Faith is one to read, reflect on and share.
