Nov. 5, 2014 – Caldwell University alumna, Cassandra Wilson Rodgers ’02, returned to campus to speak to EOF students at an EOF community meeting. Rodgers, an author and publisher, recently published her second book, “Victory Cometh For You: God’s Love Will Find a Way” (Rodgers’ first book, “Does My Nakedness Offend You?” was published while she was a student English major at Caldwell College).
Rodgers spoke about her book, which chronicles her struggles recovering from the trauma of child abuse, and shared the message with the students that “whatever your struggles are, you can rise above it. There is always hope and there is always help.” Rodgers also explained that she self-published her book because it offered her a level of freedom she did not feel big publishing companies offer.
When asked by one of the students about her writing process, she said, “I’m old school. I write in a notebook. Some people can write on a laptop, but I’m not one of them. I always kept journals as a kid. For me, writing is comfort.”
She also discussed her experiences in the EOF program. “You are lucky to be part of this program,” she told the students, as she encouraged them to continue to attend the workshops and support sessions offered by EOF.
“Victory can come to each and every one of us,” she commented. “But you have to work for it.”
Rodgers’ book is available through amazon.com in paperback and on the Kindle.
