    FORT WORTH, TX, June 28, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Mental illness is a word we hear more often these days, but it is still widely misunderstood. From depression to suicide and everything in-between, people often want to help, but do not understand nor know how. Many times people who have mental illness are unaware that they have issues unless someone in their lives encourages them to seek help. Of course, there are accounts of people who suffer from depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts that realize they need professional advice on their own. However, years ago, mental illness was rarely discussed, certainly not in public, and people that were dealing with anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts, were often scrutinized rather than offered counseling or medication that they may need for their condition. Rhonda Jennings was one of those people.

Dessert First: Transforming Life's Roadkill into Lollipops, is Rhonda Jennings' debut inspirational memoir. Tackling depression, anxiety, and financial struggles, eventually led to suicidal thoughts. Being a single parent, Jennings' was forced to pull herself back from the brink of despair and sought out the professional help that she needed. Taking it day by day, for the sake of her child, she managed to fight for herself!

Looking at life through fresh eyes, purposely leaning on her faith and seeking out joy, Jennings found herself in a position to continue her education, work, and take care of her child in a stable environment. At times she slept on a blowup mattress, fed only her daughter, and barely made rent, but the sacrifice landed her the job of her dreams. Jennings' rebuilt her life, only to experience a case of public humiliation and racism in the form of workplace bullying. Rebounding yet again, Jennings's shows the world how a normal person can get through the hazards of life even when it's as daunting as everything she went through!

Dessert First: Transforming Life's Roadkill into Lollipops, will make you laugh, cry, think, and inspire you never to give up. This book is a must read!
