Excerpts from my new ebook....Everybody Needs a Peninnah!!!! - Coming Soon!
In 2002, Rick Warren published a bestselling book entitled, The Purpose Driven Life which posed the most important question every human asks him/herself at one point in their life….Why am I here? After reading that book, I began to seek God for the reason why I was placed on this Earth. I received my answer sooner than later. I was in my first year of full-time employment after graduating from undergrad trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life and the type of career I wanted. All I knew is that I wanted to help people. After much prayer and asking God to show me my purpose, it slowly began to be revealed to me. Little did I know, I was getting ready to step into the fire of life only to come out as pure gold.
Throughout my life as a counselor and life coach, I have encountered many trials and tribulations, but it wasn’t until I began to believe God had more in store for my future that those trials and tribulations intensified. Some issues I faced were of my own volition, but most of my problems came primarily from others. It is unbelievable the amount of people you begin to encounter who do not want you to succeed. Some people want you to fail. It becomes even harder, especially when the people you find out who do not want you to succeed are family members and friends. It is awfully clear that when you begin to walk in your purpose, those who you thought would be along for the journey become insecure with themselves, have little faith, and become jealous and envious of your gifts and abilities.
This book is intended to help you understand the journey of why your character, intelligence, and abilities are being tested. You will understand why you have to depend on God and yourself in most instances. You will encounter setbacks and persecution. You will fall into temptations and you will be stabbed in the back. You will be set up and your projects will be sabotaged. You will fail at trying and succeed at preparing. You will be surprised at outcomes and you will feel helpless when measured. You will have fiery darts thrown at you and you will feel depressed about your failures. You will be disconnected from toxic relationships and connected to greatness.
