I thought getting a publishing contract was hard - it's what comes after that is...

I am so excited and nervous about finally getting a publishing contract for my debut novel "Not My Will", I've been searching for an agent and or a publisher for almost two years now for this novel and I've had many days of just wanting to give up.  I felt it was a pipe dream - this chick from the islands actually publishing a novel? Really!?  I've had so many no's, it's not a right fit for us, etc, etc.  But I thank God that whenever self doubt tried to storm in my mind, He brought the right thing: words of encouragement, a song, a scripture from memory, a stranger, my husband, my kids, a friend, something to bring me back to the bigger picture and realize that I must not give up on the dream He has instilled inside of me.

Cinderonce by Todrick Hall

I just watched this fun creative video posted by Essence Magazine online that I had to share with you.  I haven't watched American Idol in a loooong time, so I didn't know about Todrick Hall who was a semifinalist, but he made this Cinderonce video featuring Beyonce's music.  I think he did a great job.  I love the creativity. What do you think?

Let's talk about sex...

What does intimacy mean to you? In todays society intimacy seems to only mean sex. But some people can have sex without true intimacy. So what does intimacy truly mean? I feel intimacy means an unspoken closeness and special bond thats far beyond the physical of sex; sex should only enhance this special bond in my opinion. Intimacy is important in a relationship and should be a major ingredient. But in todays society I feel that intimacy is being portrayed only as sex, sex, sex; which quite frankly unless you are having sex 24/7 with mind blowing orgasms you are going to need a whole lot more than sex to have a healthy, loving, lasting relationship.
Are we as a society oversexed and losing the true meaning of love and relationship?

Constant communication with God

Along with finding quality time to get in your bible and pray to God, let prayer and worship be a part of your DAILY activities: washing clothes, driving, taking care of your kids, on the job etc:

I read this passage from Andrew Wommack's book: "A Better Way To Pray" and wanted to share:

Sometimes our biggest naysayer is ourselves...

Sometimes our biggest naysayer is ourselves.  We talk ourselves out of our blessing, out of pursuing our dreams, out of truly growing in life, we blame others, but truly it's ourselves that is holding us back.  So it's about time we look at ourselves in the mirror and say "God knew me before I was even born, He planned my life out perfectly, so I am no longer going to stand in my own way of a blessing. So self, get ready for some great things ahead, God's got my back!" Now who can stop you now - nobody.  "Go get your blessing" in my Mary Mary voice.

Please review my Childrens Book - Island Girl

REVIEWS NEEDED. Please if you would be so kind, if you have read my children's book I would really appreciate it if you write a review for me. I just realized that I have received a lot of verbal reviews, but I don't have any online, which would be VERY helpful. Please find a couple minutes to do this for me. Thanks!
