FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Powerful New Book Release, Grant Me Justice by Felecia Marshall
Energion Publications announces the September 19, 2023 release of Grant Me Justice: A Mother’s Journey from Murder and Mourning to Mercy and Dancing in paperback and electronic formats.
On March 14, 2017, everything about Felecia Marshall’s life as she knew it changed when her daughter Alexia was murdered. At the time, it seemed like a pit that she would never be able to ascend. But God!
Reflecting on, and growing from this experience, she penned the book Grant Me Justice and founded the non-profit Grant Me Justice: The Voice for the Victim, where she has been given the privilege of connecting with women worldwide who have lost their children to violence.
This book is powerfully and compellingly written, as is only possible when one writes from deeply felt and seriously considered experience. A book about the loss of a child to violence could be simply a negative condemnation of that violence and of the people who carried it out. A story of dealing with the court system in a search for justice could be a tale of despair, producing only anger.
There is anger to be felt in these stories – righteous anger. There are moments of deep despair. There are evils encountered and wrongs done.
This book tells the story of the wrongs. It portrays the evil so you can know it, recognize it, and acknowledge it, but it then goes on to deal with it in light of the gospel, in the light of our God who knows our pain, our anger, even our despair, and walks with us from there to dancing.
There are places in this book that will challenge you to consider your own actions. God is found to be the source of justice, but are you ready to be part of bringing that justice to others?
Felecia Marshall has chosen to build when she could tear down. She has chosen to move to dancing when she could spend her life in mourning. She has chosen to help others find justice, when she could—justifiably—spend her time in criticizing and complaint.
Now she has opened herself up to you through these heartfelt words in the hope of helping you find the same joy.
Will you read this and face the challenge?
In an act of tremendous courage and fierce generosity, Felecia Marshall has undertaken the task of facing the grimmest, most painful moments of her life story in order to bear witness to the power of the Gospel to heal our deepest wounds.
In a time where the news cycle flashes with accounts of gun violence, Felecia Marshall takes the reader’s face in her hands and holds their attention. Her memoir is one of generosity that clothes tragedy in humanity and love.
Grant Me Justice is a rare find—tragic and uplifting at once. Mrs. Marshall has one of the most authentic voices that I have ever encountered, and her bravery in her unflinching honesty makes this a very special book.

On March 14, 2017, everything about her life as she knew it changed when her daughter Alexia was murdered. At the time, it seemed like a pit that she would never be able to ascend, but God! Through this loss, and subsequent minimal plea deals accepted, Grant Me Justice: The Voice for the Victim (GMJ), a nonprofit, was founded where she has been given the privilege to connect with women all over the world who have lost their children to violence.
At its inception, GMJ was a vehicle to document the untold stories of murder from the perspective of a grieving mother, giving the world a front-row seat into the impact of their loss, the processing of their grief, and their personal journey through the criminal justice system.
GMJ currently provides not only the opportunity to tell one’s story, but also valuable resources that lend towards holistic healing. It consists of three components, Awareness, Advocacy, and much-needed direct support, giving our families much-needed tools in their arsenal of recovery from the trauma of murder.
God is good and has been faithful to Felecia. He has taken the poignant sting of the murder of her daughter and moved it to a powerful life work that brings healing to the brokenhearted. Ultimately, Grant Me Justice: The Voice for the Victim has evolved from merely telling stories and providing resources to a ministry that impacts hurting families with the Hope of the gospel.
