This Journal will help you understand who you are in the Kingdom as God has planned for you. Upon finishing these readings and journaling you will understand what to do in certain situations and how to respond accordingly when the enemy tries to block your pathways. Jasmine will tell you everything that she now knows about purpose and navigating one of the hardest times in her life, adolescence.


No Longer Scarred

The healing process for our emotional scars sometimes imitate the healing process of our physical scars. No Longer Scarred will take you through the pain that Jasmine had endured throughout her young adult life. Now, in her late 20’s, she realized that the path after her pain would help women who are still going through some of the things that she had experienced. Ladies, you must realize that scars do not have to be permanent or negative things. Just as one would learn in biology, scar tissue is part of the normal healing process. However, scar tissue that has not been properly remolded ensures a life of worrisome health complications. Whether this book will cause you to peel back layers of an old scar and start over in the healing process or walk you through the healing process of a recent wound, Jasmine is confident that you too will soon be able to say that you are No Longer Scarred.

Not Taylor Made

About the Author

Cecie Cenales is an Author, Youtuber, and Photographer. She lives in Atlanta GA with her oversized fur baby Geneviève. Before her writing, she held a variety of occupations from freelance photography to specializing in Pediatric Dentistry. She has always had a love for writing and storytelling. As a child, she would put on a blazer and carry around a notepad and pen creating new stories from events that went on in her household. They could find her around any corner saying, "reporting the news live, from Juliet drive." Nowadays she enjoys vlogging, writing and creating videos. She loves to take pictures, travel, and staring at the ocean waves even though she can't swim, she also loves anything dipped, covered or smothered in cheese.

About the Book

This is the true story of ten-year-old Cecie Cenales who was tortured and abused by family members after her mother’s unexpected death. Cecie quickly learns that a mother’s unconditional love does not carry over with others responsible for her care. Cecie had to learn how to deal with her grandmother’s dementia that was riddled with paranoia and abuse, her father’s angry tirades and family friends who sexually abused her and being abused within the foster care system. 

With each adult she was passed off too, Cecie had to learn to live within the rules of her abusers or she was made out to be a liar. No one believed Cecie about the nightmare she was living, she had no one to turn to, but her tenacity to live and keeping her promise to her mother that she would succeed kept her alive—the idea that someday she would be loved unconditionally again.

Making Peace With Broken Pieces

About the Author

My name is Liz. I recently wrote a book (my very first book) about my experience with domestic violence and my journey back to happiness. I chose October as the month of release because October is domestic violence awareness month and I would be honored if you were willing to share it on your blog.

About the Book

Making Peace With Broken Pieces shares the personal experiences of a woman who lost herself as she dealt with years of emotional, physical and verbal abuse from an ex partner as she tried to live up to societal standards. This book discusses the emotional changes she underwent as she struggled to understand and contain the internal war between logic and the visionary images of life and love she thought were common in relationships. Through mistakes and madness, outbursts and mental breakdowns, the author shares the tools and tips she used on her journey to find her way back to sanity was long and hard as she realized that, as a giver, she needed to set boundaries because a taker never would.

Born and raised in the Bronx, NY, Lisette has-like many of us- had her fair share of life stressors that have held her in a constant downward spiral. One of her most celebrated accomplishments was the day she found the wisdom and strength to say "No More" to domestic violence and "Yes, Please" to living a happy and purposeful life. Her experience is ushering her into the next phase of her journey as an author, life and mindset coach, and the owner of Life Lessons and Love Sessions, LLC.

Life in Its Rawest Form

About the Author

Qiana grew up as a disadvantaged youth where her parents battled with drug and alcohol addiction, and poverty, which caused her to live through tumultuous growing-up years. In addition to her childhood challenges, Qiana became a mother at the age of fifteen years old. She didn’t let her circumstances stop from dreaming of better. She used her growing-up years as an example of what she didn’t want for her future. She worked tirelessly to overcome her past and not to follow in the same path as her parents.

Today, Qiana Hicks is a mother, college graduate, a career professional, and an author. She began her career with a Financial Institution as a Customer Service Representative. In addition to working full-time, she attended junior college where she obtained an associate degree in Applied Science, which landed her a job in technology as a Helpdesk Analyst. After serving in this capacity for a couple of years, she realized that in order for her to grow and advance, it would require a higher education, so she achieved a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science. While pursuing her bachelor’s degree, she advanced to a role in Software Engineering.

In this capacity, she learned how IT could be a competitive advantage. She increased her knowledge and skills by learning to program in various software languages. This opened the door to more responsibilities, where she advanced into a leadership role in Data Management and Quality Assurance (QA).

Qiana wanted to take on more business challenges and IT opportunities. She knew that in order to do so, she had to have a well-rounded education, combined with real world experience. For those reasons, she furthered her education by achieving a Masters in Business Administration, which led to her to a senior leadership role in Software Engineering of a Fortune Twenty company. Qiana has received numerous STEM awards, and Women Of Color In Technology throughout her career. As her life and career continues to progress, she is reminded of how far she’s come. That alone is what keeps Qiana striving for better each day.

Qiana’s mission is to empower disadvantaged and at-risk youth and young adults to overcome obstacles and break the cycle of impoverished thinking and behaviors so they can make better choices to create a brighter future for themselves, and be an example for others to follow.

About the Book

This is the story of Qiana - a young girl whose body and soul are battered by abuse, neglect, and abandonment. She grows up in an environment impoverished by drug- and alcohol-addicted parents. She dreams of and hopes for a better life, wishing she could morph into a life of pure peace and happiness. But extenuating circumstances throughout her childhood and young adulthood prevent her from enjoying that life.

Instead, the adversity and oppression she and her siblings frequently endure keep that nostalgic dream tucked away in a far-off place. This young Qiana often wonders why she was born into these circumstances, and why others, perhaps more deserving of such circumstances, were not. She questions whether God is punishing her for being born. She has a hard time understanding why anyone, especially a child, must endure so much pain and hardship.

Eventually, the young girl is separated from her family and placed in foster homes, group homes, and shelters.

When she becomes a mother at the age of 15, her hopes for a brighter future diminish somewhat, yet she continues to believe that future will be possible. Her journey is riddled with struggles. Nothing comes easy. She perseveres, scars from the past being the only real help she has. Somehow, she figures out how to use her scars and experiences as opportunities for the future she’s dreamed of for so long. Regardless of the odds, Qiana relentlessly searches for the future of her dreams – and she triumphs.

Qiana understands that in order to have a better outcome for the future, she has to think differently. Among her toughest challenges are not allowing her mother’s addictions and poor choices to affect her own choices, and not following in her mother’s footsteps and those of others around her.

With a sliver of hope, with cuts, bruises, and a wounded spirit, Qiana is fiercely determined to persevere in conquering her past and to exceed society’s expectations. Her misfortunes inspire her to forge a better future. Though not a single day is easy as she pursues her dream, she never stops dreaming, and she never gives up. She works tirelessly, she overcomes old obstacles—and, early on, she achieves success. Qiana’s journey for a better life ends in triumph!

Qiana’s marvelous story of hope, inspiration, determination, and her tested formula for success can help others who want to beat their own odds—regardless of what has come before—to triumph over the impossible.


“I couldn’t give up or look back, because no one else had my back. The more I understood that, the more I pushed myself to work harder each day.”

“As overwhelming as it could sometimes be, failure was not an option.”

“Regardless of how dark the past may have been, there is always hope for a brighter future.”

The Adventures of Jaylen Newman

About the Author

A Fresh Face for a Bright New Future

Izzy Spears is celebrating the launch of her debut book, “The Adventures of Jaylen Newman”, a children’s book series that follows Jaylen Newman, an African-American boy, and his family.

“I feel it is important for little boys and girls of color to have a positive representation of themselves. That is what inspired me to start this series. I am excited to share “The Adventures of Jaylen Newman with the world!”, stated Izzy.

One day my son came up to me and asked, “Why are there not many people that look like me on television?, immediately I knew “The Adventures of Jaylen Newman was important, stated Izzy.

“There are not many opportunities for children of color to see reflections of themselves on television, in books, or in movies. I decided to start writing this series so our young children can see themselves, have something to relate to and have something to be proud of. I hope this series inspires some little boy or girl I hope he or she can read one of my books and say I don’t feel alone. I know Jaylen went through a similar situation. If he made it through the other side, I know I can as well.”, stated Izzy.

As a child Spears enjoyed a very loving and pleasant childhood. Izzy spent Summers in the country, playing outside, going to the creek, digging holes and building playhouses. Izzy also understands what it is like to move around since her step father was in the military.

Sears’ experiences as a mother makes her love watching her son grow and find his way in life. She sees so much of herself in her son, and that learning about her son helps her learn more about herself.

One of Izzy’s long term goals is to host her very own talk show. Spears stated she would love to have a platform to reach a large audience on the topics of life, love, success, wealth, health, wellness and fitness. Spears aspires to change people’s lives for the better by sharing positive stories that are meant to motivate and inspire.

Izzy is also a plus size model. She has a goal to inspire people of all body types to walk around with his or her head up, unapologetically.

“If I can lead by example and show people that body shaming is not ok then hopefully others will join me and be happy in the skin they are in.

I find myself constantly speaking up for myself and not letting people body shame me. I am active, I eat well and I don’t have to explain myself. Just because I am plus size does not mean I owe anyone an apology or an explanation.”, stated Spears.

Today, Spears resides in Los Angeles, California. She holds a B.A. in Mass Communications and a minor in Psychology.

About the Book

The Adventures of Jaylen Newman was recently launched this past March 15th, 2018. The debut book titled The Adventures of Jaylen Newman: Jaylen’s First Day of School is about Jaylen as he tries to find his way in his new life in a new state across the country. It features his two parents, his loving Dad and Mom. Jaylen's Dad is a professional at a local firm who is in his mid to late 30's. Jaylen's Mom is also in her mid to late 30's and is a professional at a local firm which was awarded a promotion in a new state, which promoted the family to move across the country. Both of Jaylen's parents are educated and they try to support their only son the best way they know how. What inspired Izzy to write this book is that her son came to her and asked her “Why was there not that many people that look like him on tv?”, which she immediately thought that she felt it was important for boys and girls of color to see children, mothers, and fathers that resembled their families. About the book, Izzy states that “I believe it is important for the world to know a positive representation of young boys of color. There are not many opportunities for children of color to see reflections of themselves on television, in books, or in movies. I decided to start writing this series so our young children can see themselves, have something to relate to and have something to be proud of. I hope this series inspires some little boy or girl I hope he or she can read one of my books and say I don’t feel alone. I know Jaylen went through a similar situation. If he made it through the other side, I know I can as well.”

In addition to her debut book The Adventures of Jaylen Newman, she has a second book titled Diary of a Curvy Gal which will possibly launch this fall of 2018. In this book, Izzy Spears tells about her struggles as a plus size woman. She gives glimpses of her past in a journal entry format. Sharing all her deep secrets, she shares how she learned to love herself, regardless of what society says. This book is a mix of inspiration, self-help and biography. She believes that sharing her story of how she struggled to love herself can inspire others to live life out loud and without fear. She states that “I felt compelled to write Diary of a Curvy Gal because I want curvy girls around the world to not feel body shame, to have pride in their bodies and learn it is ok to love yourself for who you are just the way you are.” Some of her quotes about the book is that “I took me a long time to learn how to say “F$%# the haters”. She states that “Growing up I would look into the mirror and hate what I saw. I was thin and thought I was fat. I was beautiful and thought I was ugly. I want people to know it is ok to love yourself just the way you are.” She comments that “Body shaming is not ok. We are people. We have feelings, we need love. We come in all different shapes and sizes.”, and that “The people closest to you are sometimes the ones that can hurt you the most.”

Following the launch of her two debut books, she is also currently working on other projects. She is currently writing another book which is a motivational book for women who fell their clocks have run out. She concludes with “It is never too late to try to follow your dreams.”
