Bless Your Life

Rejection moves you forward.

So many people are afraid of failure and rejection. I’m not. I don’t actively look for it, but I do actively learn from it. Sometimes pursuing what you want is the best way to find out it’s not what you need. (CLICK on View Original Post to read all.)

Trains, Planes & Automobiles!

She didn’t see or appreciate any of that. I briefly thought of how controlling, manipulative and tyrannical she was being. I also focused on how she repeatedly claimed to be the head of the family, and thought that one belief could’ve led to the destruction of her marriage more so than all the wrong-doings she’s accused Granddaddy of throughout the years.

Few are Chosen

What if I were able to see my light as clearly as I see my darkness? What if I were able to harness the good in me as securely as I suppress the sin nature? What if you are the person? What if you are the one your neighbor is waiting to receive from? What if you are the blessing? {Click on VIEW ORIGINAL MESSAGE to read whole post.}

RAINN DAY

Two Sundays ago, I participated in my first event as a RAINN representative. RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is an organization dedicated to assisting survivors of sexual assault. As a member of the RAINN Speakers Bureau I receive notices from organizations looking for people to speak about sexual violence, preferably, but not necessarily, from their own experience…. {Click on VIEW ORIGINAL POST to read the whole blog….}

Tell the Devil to Flee!

Then the pastor repeated something I knew. Something that had been planted long ago and receives regular watering. But last Sunday, that seed grew into such a stalk it burst through the ground and stretched towards the heavens. “Your struggle is not against people.

“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.”

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!”
