Format: Paperback
Karla Faye Tucker first became known to the world when she was convicted of the brutal pickax murder of two people in 1984. A brief rundown of her childhood history reveals how Karla found herself on such a violent path, which led her to Death Row and no hope or future. But her story doesn't die there...it is only the beginning. The Karla who was executed on February 3, 1998 was in no way the same woman who entered Death Row 14 years before. She was transformed by God's Spirit shortly after entering prison. This is her story of redemption, hope, faith, grace, and the power of God in a life wholly yielded to Him. I actually found myself jealous of this pickax murderer on Death Row because of the consuming peace, joy, and hope, which filled her life. She even renamed her unit from Death Row to Life Row.
The author Linda Strom was Karla Faye Tucker's spiritual advisor and dear friend. Linda tells not only Karla's story, but she also tells her own story and the testimonies of many of Karla's fellow Life Row Mates. These testimonies overwhelmed me and revealed that without question, the Spirit of God is able to bring sheer joy out of any person yielded to Him, no matter what their circumstance. It portrays the power of forgiveness...not just the forgiveness of others who have sinned against us, but perhaps even more difficult for some, forgiving ourselves of our own sins and accepting God's forgiveness as well. And these testimonies show vividly that there is nowhere we can go where God is not able to use us. If we are willing, God can and will use us powerfully to change lives and encourage our fellow believers. This is an incredibly joyful, life-changing book, which every believer should read!

Linda Strom's book convicted my spirit as a believer and reiterated the message of forgiveness in a way I never thought of before. This book is not about the Death Penalty but a message of hope to all people. God wants us to be set free from the bondage of unforgiveness so that we can be right with Him and to experience true peace and joy. Karla Faye's life was an excellent example of that. Regardless of where you have come from, this book will be a blessing to anyone!

Great story about a real woman whose face shown with a radiance that only comes through knowing the forgiveness and peace of Christ. The author doesn't sugarcoat the crime, and she doesn't downplay the miracle of transformation that took place in Karla's life.

Karla Faye Tucker A Life Changed By God

Linda Strom has captured the real story of Karla Faye Tucker. As a Member of the Discipleship Unlimited Ministry Team and having the privilege of walking with Dallas and Linda Strom, I had the privilege of meeting Karla Faye. She prayed for me. I was going through a tough time and she knelt at my feet, held my hands and lifted up the requests to God. What is written in this book is the truth. She never denied she was a murderer. When you read of her life before the crime, you will understand what could bring Karla to circumstances, situations and a place of bad choices. She never made excuses for her past. She accepted responsibility for her actions. She met Jesus in the county jail. From that day forward there was a spiritual, mental, emotional and physical transformation that changed Karla and allowed her to touch the lives of so many and share the love of the Lord. Karla had a tough exterior and a rutty complexion when I met her the first time. Right before her execution, I saw a transformed woman of God with a bright smile, a clear and glowing complexion, a woman who spoke scripture and recited Bible verses. She was a totally and committed Christian who knew Jesus had forgiven her. She was at peace. She was ready for what ever God had for her to do on earth and she was also ready to go to Heaven. She said she was the murderer crucified next to Jesus and knew that He paid the price for her sins and was forgiven. In the knowledge of this forgiveness, Karla Faye loved others to the fullest and many loved Karla inside and outside the prison. Her story will live on forever and will be recorded in the Christian history for the future generations. This story will bless you and give you hope to see lives transformed before your very eyes. Our God is a God of forgiveness. Read this book and pray for the lost souls of this world. Believe in miracles and transformed lives. Read and learn about our mighty God.

This is an amazing true account of the life of Karla Faye Tucker beautifully written by Linda Strom which covers the time span when Karla Faye was on Texas Death Row. Linda wrote the book years after her journey with Karla Faye. This book has profoundly affected me and continues to do so weeks after I read it. Karla Faye's life in prison was entirely different from her life in society which brought her into prison. Karla Faye always took responsibility for her crime and never blamed anyone but herself for her actions. Linda Strom, who is herself an Angel on earth, writes in an easy to read manner, with so much heart, beginning with how, why and when she met Karla Faye until Karla Faye went home to Heaven. The love of God radiated from Karla Faye and from her small jail cell, she lead many people to the healing love of the Lord Jesus. A must read for everyone! Anything is possible with God and this story proves it over and over! Have you ever been hurt by someone? Have you ever hurt someone? Are you addicted to anything? Or feel like you'll never be able to conquer something that's bothering you? Please read this book and be set free!! This is a story of redemption, forgiveness, and in Karla Faye's own words "the power of God to change a life." It's not your average story, and Karla Faye was not your average person in jail. She was the real deal, not a fake or imposter. Both of her victims' siblings (brother of Deborah Thornton and sister of Jerry Lynn Dean) both forgave Karla Faye, and Ron Carlson, brother of Deborah Thornton, attended her execution on Karla's side, supporting her. Larry King says his most compelling interview that touched his life of his entire career was with Karla Faye Tucker. Please read it and see if you aren't changed forever for the better...may you, too, be ambushed by Love! With Karla Faye, it was all about Him! Karla Faye's legacy is the glory and love of our Father God and our Lord Jesus, who saves us and sets us free!
