ABOUT THE BOOK

In The Family that Lies: Merci Restored, we revisit the Alexanders to see how life has treated them.

HERoine – a woman admired or idealized for her courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

Now, you are probably asking, why is this journal different from all the rest? Yes, it’s another book filled with blank pages intended for your thoughts, affirmations, poems and scriptures. Yes, it’s another book to add to the pile you already have.

However, this journal is different, in it was created with the hope you will become addicted to HERoine. No, not the drug but the woman you are destined to become. The woman who is admired by others, who is held in high regard, who is favorable and filled with courage. The woman who is honorable and of good quality.

This journal isn’t the same.

H – Habitable
E – Embody
R – Refine
O – Outward
I – Inward
N – Notwithstanding
E – Effectual

All broken down yet together they help you become addicted to YOU … the HERoine!

A Global Mirror

The Blog About

God knows, I sincerely enjoyed reading and reviewing Lakisha Johnson‘s book. The characters remind this reader of too many familiar others, albeit, her characters were difficult to imagine. Johnson is a good storyteller! Her tone and pace meld well with the tone she sets from one scene to the next.

On the first impression, I’m happy to find a Christian author/church pastor with more than a dozen books published under her belt. I’m thrilled she is one of the UBAWA’s top 100 authors. Her writing speaks to real life marital and family relationships in a down-to-earth-African-American style, using prayer and the word of God to anchor her forward driven character narratives. It is apparent (to this blogger/book reviewer) that Johnson’s target audiences consist of Bible-believing-church-going-carnal-minded Christians, and it’s clear to me that she writes for the pleasures of her readers.

Throughout her chapters, Johnson wields a global mirror before…

Book Excerpt – The Family that Lies: Merci Restored

Merci Restored _ Promo

Merci Restored

“It’s not like that. I’m just tired of all the confusion and Merci, you’re the only daughter I have left. Look, I know it’s hard but God says we must forgive.”

I chuckle. “You always did like quoting the bible when it’s convenient for you. I’ll pass though. Good night.”

“Merci, we’ve all made mistakes. Maybe I was wrong for what I said about you and forbidding Warren from seeing you, but I didn’t mean any harm.” Marie interjects.

“There’s that word again. Look lady, spare me. Warren is a grown man who can make decisions for himself. However, like usual, all I’ve ever received from any of you is harm and it’s all I continually get, so I’ll pass on mending fences but enjoy your dinner. And Marie, you never have to worry about me wanting a relationship with Warren. He is neither a man nor a father figure. As a matter of fact, all y’all deserve each other and the greatest part of life for me; I don’t have to be a part of it.”

I turn and come face to face with Melvin and Warren.

“Merci, I’m sorry.” Warren stammers, coming close to me. “I never should have allowed Marie or anybody to stop me from being in your life. I know I haven’t proved to be much of a father but I’d like that to change. Yes, we’re trying to make amends and rebuild our friendship but I’d also like an opportunity to be a father to you. ”

“I must be getting punked!” I say looking around. “Sir, I’d rather pluck out every hair on my arm than stand here and listen to another excuse, empty apology, unasked for lie and faithless scripture from either of you.”

Merci Restored

All the questions we answer but I have to warn you. There will be tragedy, hurt and of course LIES! But what good would a book be without it?
