What Are You Confessing?

It was imperative that I retract my negative responses. After all, life and death is in the power of the tongue! (Proverbs 18:21) The last word on my future was not going to be no husband, no children, no family!

Becoming Whole and Holy

Too often the Christian journey is understood simply in terms of becoming like God. While this is an essential component, if we only emphasize this aspect of it, we are likely to develop a spirituality that deemphasizes our humanity. The goal of the Christian spiritual journey is not to become less human and more divine; it is to become more fully human.

Can I Love You?

Reading that passage brought one question to mind, a question I imagined God asking me – asking us all: Can I love you?

I’m a beggar. Are you?

Some people beg for love. Others beg for the opportunity to love in hope of reaping such devotion. I used to beg for love by offering love.

Introduction (MGAM)

When I began blogging, my only intent was to entertain and promote. However, as I have reread and edited this collection, I am truly humbled by the message God is giving you through me. I am blessed by the amount of cleansing and lifting He has done within me. Some stories may seem very un-Christian, in fact maybe the whole collection may cause you to question my “Christianity”.

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.”
