Dear God | TOP Shelf 1st Place Christian Fiction Book of 2019

Dear Lakisha Johnson,

Dear God: Hear My Prayer has won 1ST PLACE in the category of Christian (Fiction) in the 2019 TopShelf Book Awards!

This is the email I just opened. My first full Christian Fiction novel has been awarded 1ST PLACE in the category of Christian (Fiction) in the 2019 TopShelf Book Awards! Y’all… to say I’m ecstatic, blown away and honored would be an understatement.

Who am I kidding, I am beside myself.

This book, Dear God, was released a year after I purchased the cover. See, I had every intention to release it in 2017 but God said NOPE! I didn’t understand it and I questioned God. “God, haven’t I been faithful? God, what else? God, why me?” All the questions I asked the many months I toiled, the many nights I cried and the days of wanting to just throw in the towel.

But I pressed!

Bible says in Philippians 3:12, “Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.”

God shut me down but it was the best thing for me, even when I couldn’t see it because in 2018, I released 7 books with Dear God being my very first full Christian book. I was nervous because it was different from any I’d written previously. This book didn’t have sex and minimal to no cursing. Yet, it has been one of my best sellers. This book deals with sexual abuse at the hands of a pastor who should have been praying instead he preyed. And while Jayme’s story is one of fiction, this same abuse is happening in houses all across the world but there’s hope. Hope to overcome, hope to press and hope to be restored.

I just want to encourage somebody. Press on, even when you don’t know what the end will be. Press on, even when it hurts and you don’t understand. Press on, especially when it takes you out of your comfort zone. It’ll pay off. I’m a witness. A bold, declaring and decreeing witness.

What’s it called?

TENSE — The Past | The Present | The Future

What’s it about? 👇🏽

For these friends, the past year holds memories, some they’d like to forget instead and others they’ll always remember.

They’ve experienced all kinds of things but with each other, their families, prayer, and God; they’ve made it through 2019, to the month of December.

But not every relationship salvaged will make it to the future.

In this Holiday Short Story, Special Edition of When the Vows Break, you’ll get to peek into the lives of these friends and see how they’re spending their Christmas holiday. Will the past they’ve endured affect their present, attempting to shatter their future? Or has the past given them instruction to treasure the present while preparing for the future? You’ll have to read to find out.

It’s more than just writing, it’s ministry. ❤️

New Book Alert – Shattered 2

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B082311Z3D/

The humiliation and guilt of so many bad decisions; created more dark days and nights of tears and shattered conditions.

The shattered remnants of Camille’s life are so entangled in her soul, that no matter how much she tries to release them, they are hard to let go.

After experiencing tragedy, pain and loss; she decided it was time to get the help she desperately needs. She began to take prayer and therapy seriously and fight for her marriage, all to help her succeed.

And things started to get better.

She received the nomination for judge, her family and friends are good, she’s smiling … Until she comes face to face with the one who’s trying to sabotage her career and it’s the last person she expected. Devastated and hurt, she does what has always worked for her, to hide her pain and run.

In the finale of this Shattered series, Camille has to pick up the pieces of her life, again. This time it’s proving to be harder because she’ll have to give up things, fight against what hurts, admit she hard truths and say goodbye; all while realizing, she has more tears to cry.

What is your story? – This is mine!

I shared this on my devotional site this morning (Kisha’s Daily Devotional) and I thought it was worth sharing here.

I asked the question, “What’s your story?”

For me, I am a preacher of God’s word who writes about sex and I love God with every fiber of my being. I’m from a single parent home although my dad lives in the same city. 12188522_10208202549200191_1645198264_nI am a product of a huge family, raised in the heart of North Memphis and I’m a twin.I’m saved by the blood of the lamb but I still cuss, sometimes, (especially when I’m upset). I have tattoos and would probably get a few more if my father-in-love hadn’t threatened me. I stay up late, I like to read and if you don’t know, I absolutely love shoes! I have a passion for God and the church yet I don’t know what His purpose for me is yet. (That’s my struggle). I also struggle at home to raise two teenagers who think they have the world figured out yet they can’t survive on their own. This year my husband and I will celebrate 18 years of marriage and we’ve yet to have a proper honeymoon. I love my family but just like you, we have our issues but I’ll love and pray the hell out of them. I write devotionals and I use Facebook for my Godly purpose and for selling my books. I am a published author who is working to get my name out to the masses. Oh, I love God! I’ll pray for you and sell you a book, afterwards. I’ll love you but it doesn’t necessarily mean I have to like you. But this is my story!

What’s yours?
