Pretty In His Presence
I still get asked if I’m in this book, so I’m going to tell you again, “YES”! LOL!! I did not write a chapter about my life, but you can read an excerpt in the tribute I wrote to the author, Min. Raleigh Thornton, Jr.
Pretty In His Presence is a must-read book for everyone who has dealt with situations or knows someone who has been in a situation that seemed like it would never get better.
Nine women offer a piece of their life and challenges they faced that helped them become stronger by leaning on their faith and learning more about themselves in the process. I laughed, cried, got angry, and celebrated their victories!
This book will inspire you to step into your destiny, trust God, experience new opportunities, and understand that your winter season will become spring if you don’t give up!
Raleigh Thornton asks us, “Are you ok?” Can you honestly answer that with a yes? I couldn’t. So many of us feel we have to hide our feelings as to not appear weak or helpless. Women carry so much responsibility daily that our days seem to become a constant replay of yesterday. Not to mention if you are a wife and/or mother, those duties are magnified. We have to keep everything together, sometimes with no help. The strength of a woman must be protected at all costs, which means we have to make time to ensure we are ok. No one else can do it for us. So, I’m asking you, “Are you ok”?
The tribute I wrote for him expresses the thankfulness I have and to let you know of his genuine concern for people. He truly desires to live a life that is pleasing to God. I can honestly say that he is.
Choosing to submit to God’s plan and write a book to empower women and share a small portion of himself in it shows his selflessness. His God given assignment is being fulfilled daily as he continues to encourage others through his videos, podcast, and now his book.
Thank you Minister Raleigh Thornton, Jr. for heeding the call on your life and walking in obedience!
