I got my religion from uncomplicated folks, my Bigmama, my Mama, and their friends (doctors, lawyers, teachers, educators, and domestic workers) who lived on purpose and talked about Jesus and His power like He was a good friend to be called on and leaned on. He lived next door. My eBooks are simple, nothing exceptional, but written during the height of the great recession when I was, simply, calling on “Jesus” to make it another day. I was getting on my knees to make sure that I made it through. I know there are millions of books, some written by folks who are much more important than I, some filled with great prose. I love a good book.
But today I’m, humbly, sharing a few pages and paragraphs, of my sweet, simple eBook, Praise: Lessons of Faith for Tough Times. You can read the whole darn thing on your computer in 40 minutes. SimpleJ While writing it, I was in one of the most difficult times I’ve experienced as an adult. I needed somebody. And with my Bigmama and Mama gone, I called on Jesus, and begged Him to just climb in bed with me to give me comfort. He did. Then with the comfort and grace and peace that comes from having Jesus’ arms wrapped around you all night long, I sat down and wrote. I hope you enjoy reading parts of Praise!
