You are a Warrior!


Hey You-

Yes you. Guess what…. You are a warrior! Did you know that? I don’t say that lightly. I mean it whole heartedly. Life may have treated you badly. You may have been bullied. You possibly were: physically, mentally, emotionally, or even – sexually abused. You may have had a tragedy or two happen. You mY have a physical problem, or health isues… (maybe all the above.) Well I’m talking to you…. Yes, you….

Those experiences, or situations you have gone through don’t make you weak. They are not your fault, and God is not punishing you!

Mathew 9:10-13 <New American Standard Bible -NASB> Then it happened that as Jesus was reclining at the table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were dining with Jesus and His disciples. When the Pharisees saw this, they said to His disciples, “Why is your Teacher eating with the tax collectors and sinners?” But when Jesus heard this, He said, It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire compassion, and not sacrifice,’ for I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Maybe you thought that God was mad at you, or you had bad karma… Well I want to set that straight…. Take a deep breath… This next part may be hard for you…

You need to tell others how you are feeling or when you are in need. If you don’t speak up and tell someone what’s going on. We can’t help you. Speaking out or asking for help. It takes great courage. Doing so it is important. PLEASE talk to some. Because- You matter, you are important, and you are loved.

It really angers me when I learn of people hurting others. Especially if it is physical or sexual violence. My mamma bear wants to come out and retaliate. I have been witness to some really bad people’s actions. It makes me cry for those who are hurt and hurting. Knowing how I feel about it, and knowing God loves us all <John 3:16> I can’t imagine how much more it pains God to see his children suffering an hurting each other.

If you have suffered from anything its not from God. <John 10:10> You are a survivor! You are a warrior!!! Use the trails you have been through to encourage and help others. Just being you and living your day to day life, you are an inspiration!

You are strong, you are loved and you are not alone! You are a warrior!!!

Support Your Authors


I have a question for you… How you buy and obtain your books? Do you know that it matters?  I personally strive to support my favorite authors. They work hard to share their stories with us. If you can’t afford to buy the books, you can request them at your favored stores and or libraries.  You can also support the authors with comments and thoughtful words on their sites and blogs. So that they know what they do matters to you.  You are the ones that keep us authors writing…  Who knows, you may end up with some free books♡ Heres some more ways you can support them.

Belive in Nice


37773964_1126561174148919_6167494537938731008_o I saw this on someone’s license plate holder, and it made me smile. It has been brought to my attention multiple times that nice people are scary because they seem fake and insincere. I promise you I am real and I am nice. I wish more people would believe in being nice and trust that there are truly nice people. There are too many fake people out there that give us nice people a bad reputation. It is really sad how some people are afraid to be nice.  They worry it will lead to hurt and disappointment or the possibility of being used.    How do you change the world?  As  God says in Evan Almighty  A.R.K. One Act of kindness at a time… That is how I choose to live…  I challenge you to be kind once in a while at least. 😊

Shout out to the “AWC”


🗣 I want to give a shout out to “AWC”. I found them thanks to JJ’s Design and Creations. I’m happy to have found them. Espessily Gina Wynn! She is such a joy to work with. It has taken me months to seek out a good formatter since Amazon decided to declare my kindle book full of errors. And thus removed from Kindle Select. I was so sad… Then my personal computer broke and it took me even longer to find a formatter. Thanks to her not only do I get a pretty new kindle book, I get a nice epub and pdf version too. As well as a new friend!  She is now also a team member at A Novel Life LLC. Woot! Woot! I can not wait to finish more books so I can have her work her magic! 

 Check them out!

I give them  Five Stars!

Happy New Year 2018


 

Screenshot at Dec 31 21-18-50.pngHey all! Happy New Year!

         Out  with the old and in with the New right? I don’t know about you but this year has been something dramatic novel! I feel as if a lot of what has happened the past few years has been surreal.   Some great moments, among some very tying times. As if I was  someone else watching my life as it happened. I can not at this time go into details of everything. In short Its been hard emotionally, mentally, and physically. My faith has truly been tested. There were times I thought I wouldn’t’t be able to handle it. Sometimes you are forced to make hard choices. I had to yet gain put my books on hold for various reasons.

I was surprised tho this Christmas when I received a gift  from one of my biggest supporters. She gave me a Mac Pro laptop computer. It is not huge, but its is way more then I could have asked for or though to request.  In return she expects me to publish some books this year. The wonderful woman is going though so much right now and yet she invested in me. I sure hope I don’t let her or any of you down. The Mac is so different from what I am used to.  I do not have the programs, adaptor port, or mouse that I need yet. However, that will be rectified in a matter of days.  From what I have discovered so far the Mac pro is amazing. This touch pad is great. I feel so bad, that still haven’t published any books since  “God Supplies and Miracles Happen”.  I have been without a computer for several moths.  Plus Money has been extra tight. I feel truly blessed and completely surprised. I don’t  feel worth it somedays.  At times I felt I should give up… But then I am surprised you all still are  here believing in me. I am truly humbled! I pray I can live up to your expectations and then some. I have an amazing group people in my life and a wonderful family. I want to remind  you, God is bigger then the situations we are in. I sure pray this coming year is better for all of you.  I love you all I am truly truly grateful!  May this year  bring you  an abundance of blessings and open doors. God bless you today and always!😁

Shout out~

      Hello all you wonderful people out there! How you doing? I’m sorry I have been taking a Hiatus from here and Facebook. Which pretty much has been for the past couple months. I’m not officially back yet, but I felt like I should give you all an update. I went to #Authorplusa2017 last month with some amazing Authors! I’m still in happy daze because of it. I met The event coordinator and Author David Michael before the event took. I took a six hour ride with him to the hotel. I met his wonderful grandmother and her friend as well. He is an awesome guy all around. A Total gentleman. Then I met the author Sherry Ficklin in the hall before the event. Also she’s a totally awesome person. We spent a few days beforehand hanging out grabbing dinner and drinks. With her author friend Kathy-Lynn Cross and my editor Sara Tassill– More awesome people! I shared a table with authors Anjiu Sutomu and C.J. Foxx and his sister. Who was funny smart considerate. There were multiple genres at this event. I  even had the pleasure to see my Big brother Curtis, and my longstanding buddy Mikey Lee! Yay! I met so many new people. Like the awesome Scott Hildreth, who writes  in multiple genres.  He has an amazing   kids book “The Flying Pig” An inspirational story about a pig that wanted to fly. I met his lovely wife who is also an Author and Artist Jessica Hildreth Designs.

It was definitely a good experience.  I have no idea what book event I will be going to next. There are so many I would love to go to. Yet so little time and money to do so at the moment. I promise to let you guys know if I plan to go to another book event in the future. I love you so much! God bless you today and always

Ps. If you went to #Authorplusa2017 or  any book event, please feel free to comment below. I can’t remember everyone’s names and I would love to give you a shout out.

 

 

 

Don’t Sell yourself Out.


Screenshot at Dec 31 16-57-29

Don’t sell your self short! Be yourself~ I adore people. I am a pretty laid back person. I am usually cheerful, egar to help, and alwaus full of support. I’ve often been told that I can be quite annoying until a person gets to know me. I like just about everyone except, I have to draw the line at fake people. There’s a difference between being busy and being fake. I am very grateful to have awesome wonderful friends and rarely running across fake people. My word of advice is be yourself no matter what. There’s no one better at being you, than you being you.  There is only one you and not everyone is gonna like you.  Don’t change who you are, or how you think, to please others, because then you arn’t being true to yourself.  God made us different for a reason. Life would be pretty boring if we were all the same. Smile and know you are awesome and special.  #truth

OPEN YOUR CHEST OF DREAMS


❀✎☆How was your weekend all? Long? I know what happened Friday really got me thinking.. I used to say this all the time but I feel like I don’t say it enough… LIFE IS SHORT! My grandma Sylvia, even in her in her 80’s, would say that “You should never grow up, enjoy life to the fullest”. We all have goals and dreams that we want to follow, yet the reality is that our needs get in the way. By the time most of us get done what ‘has to be done’ we are too tired and burned out to do what we want. We lock our dreams, goals and hopes up in a chest, but then the chest gets dusty and we forget about it. I don’t want to forget about my Dreams and neither should you. You need to make time to follow them. If it involves money then start saving. If it’s about health then get to it. Going after what you want in life is never easy. You have to fight for it. That includes love and relationships too. Nothing worth having is easy. Personally I am getting back on track, I was depressed for a while but I shook it off thanks to good friends and a change in my attitude. Don’t let the lies- “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t deserve it”, “I can’t do it” get in your way. Guess what, YOU ARE AWESOME! You have unique gifts no one else has and you are one of a kind. You need to believe in yourself..fight for yourself, because you are worth it! Go find your locked chest and open it!!  Never say Never! ❀✎☆

Love  ya,
