Freeing Tanner Rose

For Gabriel, Tanner Rose is just a superficial starlet, addicted to Hollywood. For Tanner, Gabriel is just a boring, kung fu-loving, Christian boy, who’s living a lackluster life in the middle of no-where. So, what happens when she’s forced to live in his world? It doesn’t take long before Tanner Rose craves a taste of her old life, even if it means upsetting a few people along the way. She thrives in the spotlight, after-all! Will Gabriel’s faith encourage Tanner to change her partying ways or will her wild undertakings and addicting vices tempt him to do things he’d never, ever considered before?

“There has no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that you may be able to bear it.”  (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Freeing Tanner Rose is the first of four books in the Faith & Kung Fu series. “Saving Faith” is book 2.

  2. Freeing Tanner Rose is a wonderfully written book about two teenagers and how they deal with the temptations in their lives. Tanner is a famous 14 year old actress who is dealing with the temptations of drugs, drinking, and sex, along with the stress of being an actress in Hollywood. Although Tanner is 14, she is portrayed as being older and put into situations that are for an older teenager. Tanner’s mom is caught up in the glamor and money of Hollywood and isn’t a good support system for her daughter. She doesn’t set any moral boundaries for Tanner, so Tanner is free to frequent the Hollywood parties, where drugs, alcohol and sex are the norm. Tanner is able to abstain from sex but succumbs to the temptations of drugs and alcohol, as a way of dealing with the stress of life.
    Even though many of us can’t relate to the problems of Hollywood, we can all relate to having to deal with temptations in our lives. Most of the teenagers and young adults will be able to relate to the temptations that Tanner is facing, as they probably face many of the same temptations on a daily basis. As adults we may be able to relate to Tanners mom and getting caught up in work and not finding time for God, and sometimes our children’s lives.
    Gabriel is the moral compass of the book. He is a 16 year old who relies on God to help him deal with his emotions, temptations, and anger. Gabriels mom, MIss Ruth, is supportive of her son, and also relies heavily on God to get her through the struggles of life. Through Gabriel and Miss Ruth, Tanner learns to love herself and God. She learns to turn to God for support with her temptations.
    “Through God, all things are possible.”
