Maintain justice, and do what is right, for soon my salvation will come, and my deliverance be revealed.

ACAD – Accepted: Genesis 32

If we give bountiful gifts, will we not be accepted? Expecting acceptance and forgiveness based on what we have to give. **”You shall say the same thing to Esau when you find him, and you shall say, ‘Moreover, your servant Jacob is behind us.'” For he thought, “I may appease him with the present that goes ahead of me, and afterward I shall see his face. Perhaps he will accept me.”**

ACAD – Rejected: Hosea 4

Israel’s unfaithfulness to God is liked to adultery. He rejects their children. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.”

ACAD – Rejected: Isaiah 53

Prophesy of Jesus’s rejection and execution by the people. Who has believed what we have heard? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? “He was despised and rejected by others; a man of suffering and acquainted with infirmity; and as one from whom others hide their faces He was despised, and we held Him of no account. Surely He has borne our infirmities and carried our diseases; yet we accounted Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted.”

ACAD – Rejected: Isaiah 5

Woe to the wicked. “Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will become rotten, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the instruction of the Lord of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.”

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!”

“Honestly, I’ve been enjoying reading your book as I proofread it. The last few books I’ve proofread/edited have been a really technical healthcare-related manual and a very academic history book, so I’m relishing the opportunity to work on something that is more personal and lively.

I’ve experienced the sadness, joy and frustrations of your life as I read through your manuscript, and there have been some lessons I’ve picked up on that I can apply to my own life.

I definitely think you have something in this book that can help others. What you have to offer is a sensitivity coupled with an intelligence, both of which you’re willing to really “put out there.” Your sensitivity allows you to really feel your pain or happiness and reflect upon those emotions. Your intelligence affords you the chance to dissect your experiences and understand what they mean, as well as find ways to communicate them to others so that they can benefit from them. Not everyone can do that.

I look forward to reading more, with the hope that your book ends on a very positive, hopeful note…. with you overcoming the obstacles and pitfalls of life to continue to find happiness and self-fulfillment.

Thanks.”
