Welcome to another Empowering Post within the "Must Read" Blog Series.
I am Felecia Killings, the Founder and CEO of this great work. Our mission is to help God's writers build a business or ministry around their authorship.
Each week, I take the time to highlight some of the extraordinary works from new and aspiring Christian Authors. I purpose to help bring their names, their brand, and their books to wider audiences.
By doing so, my hope is that you will experience empowerment as you seek to transform your personal, professional, and spiritual life.
Now, for today's "Must Read" post, I will feature three new authors:
Each writer fits within a different genre in the Christian or inspirational market.
And I will conclude today's Book Recommendations with a newly-added e-book to The Foundation from yours truly.
So, without further delay, allow me to introduce a new set of authors who are ready to share their story and expertise with you!
Stephanie Freeman, who writes under the name as Aracyne Kelly, was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She graduated from the University of Baltimore with a degree in Fine Arts and a concentration in English/Professional Writing.
Freeman devoted her life to Christ many years ago after experiencing personal tragedy, which left her in a deep state of depression.
Since then, she has become an Educator who travels the country and a Best-Selling Christian Romance Author. She wrote her first book, Peculiar Kindness, for her dearest friend in the world, Stephanie Rook.
And her second book, Heaven’s Girl, was written in memory of her mother, Dolores A. Freeman.
It is Stephanie/Aracyne’s fondest desire to keep spreading the good news, everlasting hope, and the redeeming power of God’s mercy, grace, and love. And that is exactly what you will sense, Beloved, as you dive into her newest book, Heaven's Girl.
What Readers Have Said about Heaven's Girl
I enjoyed this book! It is said that the blind can see things that people with sight can't & others are blinded by pain and hurt."
Ozzie Anderson was born in Aiken, South Carolina, and grew up in Allendale, SC. Since 2005, he's served as a U.S. Navy Sailor, and currently functions in this role today.
Anderson enjoys writing emotion-base poetry, which anyone can relate to. His inspiration for writing comes from his aunt who is also an author, Sister Pauline M. Brown.
After serving on tours across the world, Ozzie's eyes opened to other points of view in life. After losing his mother while in bootcamp, he began expressing his emotions through poetry.
He published his first book, A Missing Rose, in 2014. And through all his works, Anderson motivates his readers to make their dreams a reality.
Open Chapter, the book featured in today's blog post, is a collection of poetry that takes the reader into the minds of individuals who have dreams, goals, and aspirations.
Through a compilation of inspirational poetry and motivational quotes, one can start a journey of healing, understanding, and forgiveness of self. This book of poetry gives a voice to the voiceless, and you will certainly be empowered, Beloved.
What Readers Have Said about Open Chapter
Love his literature and he is an influential leader. Whenever you can read a person story and able to emphasize those emotions at that given moment it becomes beautiful and makes you think about the reality of things in everyday life. His book gave me that type of effect. I encourage others to follow him and follow his story."
Survival by Faith: A Story of Faith, Obedience, and Revelation
Shawn-Ta Sterns Wilson is a woman who decided to follow Christ and His will for her life. She believes part of her calling is to provide encouragement and strength to individuals. And writing has provided an avenue for her to do exactly that.
Shawn-Ta gives all credit to God for her writing. He continually shares revelation with her, which allows her writing to be impactful and inspiring. Shawn-Ta’s stories, based on life's experiences, are relatable, spiritually uplifting, and encouraging to readers. Her transparent style of writing allows readers to connect with her immediately. Shawn-Ta believes “there is no testimony without transparency.”
Survival by Faith takes readers on a journey through the author’s life as she generously shares real-life, vivid details of her personal experiences. It is evident throughout the book that she relied on Jesus Christ for all of her needs.
Although this book is spiritual in nature, anyone can connect with the author’s character. Her display of affection for others is refreshing to experience, and her genuine love for God is uplifting.
You will be blessed by her tremendous story, Beloved.
What Readers Have Said about Survival by Faith
“WOW! This book had me mesmerized from the beginning.”
But What Did YahWeh Say? Dealing with Family and Friends Who Mock Your Vision & Purpose
Finally, Beloved, get your hands on the newest resources from yours truly.
In another Empowering Guide, I share with you a powerful lesson that will help you remain focused on the mission you have.
Sometimes your vision grows too large for the company you keep. In that moment, you may find yourself surrounded by family and friends who mock -- rather than support -- your vision and purpose.
In this 12-page guide, I will show you how I handled other people's doubts while remaining steadfast to my call of empowering you. And if you take heed to this teaching, it will empower you to press onward towards your high calling as a Christian Writerpreneur.
What Readers and Clients Say about Felecia's Teachings
Felecia is very talented and has several qualities that a new writer can benefit from. She has excellent communication skills and a very sensitive and supportive approach to her training."
Beloved, as always, we want to stress the importance of gathering the right training that will impact your assignment as one of God's writers.
And when you take the time to nurture your gift, YahWeh will present opportunities to have your book brought before the masses.
I pray that these book recommendations inspired you to purchase the amazing works from today's new authors. Connect with each of them on social media. As YahWeh continues to use their voice to empower you, I am confident that you will experience transformation in your life.
Until next time, Beloved, be blessed.
And as always, let's grow together!
