About the Book

At the age of forty-eight, I thought my dreams were over. Depressed, physically ill and emotionally bruised, I had all but given up. I had no hope and felt destined to a life of misery and gloom. Then something happened, I began to hear a voice speak to me. Was I crazy? God doesn't speak to "ordinary" people, does he? Well, he was speaking to me. At first I didn't know what to think, what to do, but then He told me to look back over my life and tell Him what I saw. What I saw was not what I expected; what I saw was evidence of God's goodness throughout my life. That's when I began to thank and praise Him. From that day my life changed drastically, on every level, in every aspect. I began to look at life in a new way, a more positive way. The more positive I began to think, the more positive things started to occur in my life. Those conversations with God led to the writing of this book.

About the Author

I am a mother of four, grandmother of twelve and daughter of the strongest woman I've ever known (R.I.P Lizzie Mae). I have been through many life struggles, as have we all. I became a writer by divine intervention, after adopting an attitude of gratitude. I don't profess to be a literary scholar; I only proclaim that I am a testimony to turning victimization into victory. I live in Detroit, Michigan, where I was born and raised.
