About the Book

Jennifer E. Embury delves further into the traumatic events that took place during her childhood, which she introduced in her first book, A Drink of Water: A Memoir about My Life with Men.
In Loaves of Bread, she shares how despite so many obstacles, she became a successful veterinarian.
She also looks back at how on November 4, 2007, she was baptized and received her first Holy Communion. About ten days later, while she was sleeping, the Lord raised her up to the ceiling so she could not move. For about three hours, she was suspended in the air.
The next morning, when she woke up, she had an insatiable hunger for the Word of God. She read every word in the Bible like it was the bread of life. After many months of study, she memorized all of Scripture.
In this memoir, she explores how she found success despite an interwoven cycle of child abuse, drug addiction, codependency, and domestic violence. She also shows how counseling combined with her deep relationship with Jesus Christ allowed her to heal.
