Only by the Grace of God: The Story of Sharon Dixon
I believe if a person survives a horrendous ordeal and lives to tell about it, that person needs to be heard so someone can learn from it. Domestic violence is a silent killer, maimer and disabler. According to statistics, a woman is battered in the U.S. every 9 seconds. My friend, Sharon Dixon, was shot through the breast at age 22 by a jealous boyfriend and it left her paralyzed for over 30 years. The twist was that she married her abuser. But by the grace of God, you will stand in awe of the victories that Sharon realized. Sharon and I have conducted numerous booksignings, workshops, seminars, speaking engagements and appeared on local TV and radio programs. We help both potential and actual victims and families through the warnings and hope in the book. We also donate a portion of book sales to H.E.R. (Help and Emergency Response) Shelter.

How You Got Into Debt ... And How You Can Get Out
Taylor’s Word on Debt is a cautionary tale that chronicles her experience with debt and describes in detail the reasons behind her dilemma and the steps she took to get out of the situation.

While writing Go Beyond Your Dreams, I hoped women reading this book would believe they too could overcome seemingly impossible odds and difficult challenges. I knew there were other women who, perhaps much like me, were yearning for their visions and dreams to come to pass. The Bible says, “faith without works is dead.” However, I’ve learned, through the Word of God, that if we feed our faith, then give it a specific assignment, faith has the power to manifest what we believed was possible!
Go Beyond Your Dreams was written for females who are tired of leading mediocre lives. It was written for dreamers and visionaries who have wondered why faith hasn’t worked for them. Chapter by chapter, you will see how three simple faith-based steps implemented into your daily life will transform a mediocre mindset into a positive way of thinking for successful living. I truly believe every woman who reads Go Beyond Your Dreams can live out her days the way God intended—abundantly blessed in every area of her life!

Stephan watched in front of the school as the young mother kissed her four children goodbye. My mother was oblivious to his plotting and scheming to become a part of her existence. Every day he found ways to make contact with her. A seemingly accidental meeting got them on speaking terms and consistently crossing paths made it feel natural to stop and have a chat for a moment.
Feeling confident that he had established a rapport with the young mother, he blatantly followed her home one day. Sophia, my mother noticed him, stopped and playfully teased him about following her. He continued to walk her home as they joked about him being a stalker.
My name is Toni, and I was seven years old, the day my mother invited Stephan into our home. It was the beginning of my nightmare. Through my eyes I want to bring to your attention a man that watched, stalked and preyed on my family and many other families. It was his intentions all along to violate the sanctity of our family for his own self gratification.
After you have read my story, you will grab your children and cover them with a blanket of protection because just when you thought he was a part of a childish fairytale, you find out the boogey man does exist………
