Imagine standing face to face with an opponent whose face is obstructed from view. You have no idea who it is, but they’ve been the one taunting and tormenting you. This opponent’s voice keeps you up at night, paralyzing you with fear. It’s the one holding purpose in your sight but not allowing you to get near. This opponent is familiar, its voice is one you’ve heard too.
Now imagine looking in the mirror and this opponent is you.
This journal, Surviving Me was created by prayer and God’s guidance because I’ve come to understand, sometimes we’re our own worst enemy. It’s not that we don’t believe in ourselves or trust who God has made us, but dealing with the strains of life can make you pause when you should press.
This journal will touch on subjects of who am I, what’s hindering me and how do I survive; to help you divorce things you fight against daily. However, this journal isn’t a magical potion, it may not even be the answer you need; but I pray it helps on your journey of surviving when the enemy you’re fighting is YOU.
When my twin sister, LaQuisha, was fighting with #TrigeminalNeuralgia, she kept a journal. It was used to keep track of her thoughts and the many different medicines she was on. In the midst, her journal became her release because while people didn’t understand, her journal did. You can read some of her journal entries in the book #StillFighting.
This is how ‘Be a Fighter’ was created. If you notice on the cover, the boxing gloves has different colors because they represent some of the battles most fight every day. Things like Fibromyalgia, Lupus, MS, Heart Disease, Cancer, Sickle Cell, Arthritis, Kidney or Liver Disease, Trigeminal Neuralgia and etc.This journal also represents those of you who are experiencing grief, a broken heart, low self-esteem, depression and/or addiction.
This journal, it’s not the remedy to what ails you, I simply created it to give you encouragement to BE A FIGHTER. Especially on the days and nights when your suffering seems to have the upper hand, the moments when nobody understands and the minutes when words escape you.
While I cannot stop your pain, I encourage you to fight. When you’re at your wits end and feel like giving up, tired, frustrated and overwhelmed …Fight while you write it out! Let writing, even for a moment, be your release while you FIGHT!

Doses of Devotion –“Although your problems come with pain, the pain is proving that you’re not perfect but yet a person who God has picked to be placed at this point and through prayer you’ll be prescribed a promise of praise that allows you to be purified and through this purification process you’ll prosper and through your prosperity you’ll get power and with this power you’ll get God’s protection that allows you to prevail and once you prevail, you’ll have the patience to pursue your purpose.”
I didn’t write this book to tell you that each day will be easy because then I’d be selling you a dream however, I simply stopped to give you some encouragement.
Yes, this journey is hard but if everything was easy would you appreciate your struggle in overcoming? I don’t have all the answers but I can promise you a Master who has never lost a case. I get it, you may be in your struggle; right now but it’s only making you stronger, strengthening the weak places need to make your transition to greater.

You Only Live Once begins and ends in prayer and is filled with prayers, devotionals and helpful information to help your youth on their spiritual journey. This devotional was written to let them know that prayer alone doesn’t work but with prayer, fasting, faith and work they can get through their struggle. For the bible says; Faith without works is dead (James 2:17).
I pray this book reaches those that need a little or even a lot of encouragement for the times you’ve seemed to fallen and don’t know how to get back up! I pray that this book gives them restored hope and understanding and courage to pray even the more. I even pray that this book creates in them a devotion to spend more time in devotion to God. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it!
No, it isn’t your average devotional but it is God’s word and it is geared towards youth, teens and young adults however it is not sugarcoated teaching because the world isn’t sugarcoating it’s teaching. This devotional is written to help them on their journey because this spiritual walk isn’t a joke and it’s hard, daily. The enemy isn’t playing and his attacks are getting harder day-to-day. My prayer is that the find what they need inside.
