It is the worst year ever for Cynthia...

Within a span of six months, she’s lost her beloved townhome, her job as a middle-grade schoolteacher, and was betrayed by her longtime partner, whom she believed was destined to be her forever. Hurt, homeless, and confused, Cynthia retreats to her grandmother’s house in a small town somewhere north of Houston, Texas seeking solitude to heal her heart, forget about relationships, and plot her next move in life. But what she doesn’t expect is a knock on her grandmother’s door from a man who’s come to interrupt her plans.

Based on the 21-day journey and the exercises you complete in Veronique Pierre's book, "The Strongest Woman In the World Is You," you should be in an excellent place to determine what strategies work best for you. If you discover during the process that you need professional help, please reach out to a professional and continue to fight for your happiness to enhance the quality of your life.

2020 was a year like none other--unforgettable! For many, there were lots of questions, fears, and concerns. Most had never experienced anything like this in their lifetimes.

Marietta Brown felt led to write her book, "2020?" to give hope and encouragement to the hopeless. Available online here: https://www.drmariettabrown.net/

"I consider this particular book to be an inspiration to Christians and Non-Christians alike."
-- 5-star Amazon reviewer of "Between Mountains"

Everyone likes the view from the mountaintop. It is easy to believe that God is with us when things are going well.
But what happens when we have to travel through the valley and we are faced with heartache, sickness, disappointment, and tragedy?

What do we do then? Do we look to God for victory in the valleys?
Author Tony Lewis addresses these questions and more in his new book, "Between Mountains: Finding God In Valleys." The good news is that your battle is the Lord’s. Yes, you are in the battle too. Your valley is your valley, but you are not alone. We have a God who loves us and delivers us, a God who can propel us in dramatic fashion into the tangible realm of His divine provision. It is never too dark that He cannot see, nor too far that He cannot reach us in our valleys.

Author Jade Lauryne has written a book that helps you design your life, your way. Many have come to believe that their life is outside their control. Many believe they are victims of the world outside of themselves. In short, many have abdicated their power to the real of somewhere or someone else, and feel they have no control; it's "just the way it is." "Life by Design" is about taking back your power, and to understand that you were created, by your Creator with divine free will.

I've have reached the point where I am no longer interested in acquiring a publisher or promoter, since they can't do any more for me, then I am doing for myself, by self-publishing and doing my own promoting. HOWEVER, if I am wrong, I’d glad too be proven wrong... PLEASE LEAVE COMMENT, & hopefully we can come to some agreement. https://www.amazon.com/Curtis-James-Morrow/e/B074TWSKKW/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1 In advance, thank you much. 😁
