ACAD – Remnant: Judges 5

Awake, awake, Deborah! Awake, awake, utter a song! Arise, Barak, lead away your captives, O son of Abinoam. Then down marched the remnant of the noble; the people of the Lord marched down for him against the mighty.

ACAD – Remnant: Exodus 10

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his officials, in order that I may show these signs of mine among them, and that you may tell your children and grandchildren how I have made fools of the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them—so that you may know that I am the Lord.”

ACAD – Remnant: Genesis 45

“I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. And now do not be distressed, or angry with yourselves, because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life…. God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors.”

Set Fire to the Rain…

Set Fire to the Rain is a therapeutic letter featured in Desert of Solitude: Refreshed by Grace. It was written three years after the addressee, Peewee, died. The letter represents the tiers and nuances of love and forgiveness that entangles and confuses interactions between an abuser and the abused.

Introduction: Wonder-Filled Living

The introduction to Desert of Solitude: Refreshed by Grace outlines how wonderful humans are even during our lowest to ordinary moments. The African Augustine of Hippo, remembered as Saint Augustine, pondered that people travel the world to experience wonder yet pass by themselves without wondering at all. We become used to ourselves, used to our lives, our surroundings, our situations. We begin to think we are common, that there’s nothing special about us, indeed that our very basic days are as good as life gets.

Preface: A Note About Desert of Solitude

Preface: A Note About Desert of Solitude
Two common pieces of feedback received for My God and Me, the first book about my faith journey, was (1) the material was dense and (2) frequent pauses were needed to reflect on what was shared. As a result, I’ve taken great care to make the pages of Desert of Solitude more welcoming to read by adding breaks and transitions in the form of poems, notes, songs and sermons.

Hi, LaShawnda,
I just wanted to let you know that I met with some of the ladies after you left and they said that they felt really inspired by you and that your positive attitude was uplifting. Many of them said that they were excited to get the books and look forward to reading them when they get home. One woman stated that she felt special that the author of the book signed her copy!
Hopefully we can work together in the future!
Thanks again!”
