About the Book

Some five or six years ago I had the opportunity to speak at a women’s prayer breakfast in my hometown. The theme for that prayer breakfast was “Christian Women, Showing Compassion and Making a Difference”. In contemplating what I would use for a subject, God gave me the message “Let Your Light Shine” The message came from Matthew chapter 5 verses 1-15, but the main thought came from verse 14 where Jesus told His disciples “you are the light of the world”. This book is a direct result of the thoughts that God gave me. That message was not only for those gathered for the prayer breakfast, but it was for me also. I had found my purpose, which was and still is to be a light, one that shines forth for Jesus Christ.

She currently serves as pastor of one of the churches in the Seventh Episcopal District, Carolina Region. Her Presiding Prelate is Bishop Thomas L. Hoyt Jr. and her presiding Elder is Dr. James E. Russell Jr. Aside from her pastoral duties, Reverend Miller is active in the Tryon Community where she resides.

Carson Scholarship committee, and also a board member of Polk Vocational Services. Her love for the Word of God has allowed her to speak on numerous occasions at different churches in both North and South Carolina. She knows that her preaching ability is a gift from God, and therefore she allows God to use her in the way that He sees fi t. Reverend Miller’s first book “Covered By The Leaves” published in 2007 was an emptying out of the pain and hurt that she suffered as a result of discrimination on the job. She says that she had to write about that dark time in her life so that she can now write about her times of light.
