Read This! Dreaming the Dream

This month’s book review is coming a day late but I don’t even know if what I have to say will serve enough justice! It’s entitled “Dreaming the Dream!”

This one, without question is a serious MUST READ! I picked it up at such an appropriate time and was completely blessed beyond description!

This book is an incredible collaboration of 8 exceptional women and men of God who will inspire their readers to walk in love, keep their faith and refuse to abandon their dreams!

This read was beyond timely for me as I have reached a plateau while walking such an uncertain path towards my heart’s desires. Something inside has been reignited after considering the content between these pages.

Here are some highlights! It is my hopes that they will tempt you to purchase your own copy so that you can experience the totality of all the wisdom this book has to offer!

Shawneya Ellis will challenge you to reexamine your life and do some serious pruning! There may be some deadly seeds that may have been deposited in you life. They are smothering and preventing you from experiencing God’s best! 

Romella Vaughn provides incredible wisdom on why it’s necessary for every believer to wait on God. Patience is truly a virtue! While we wait we must be in preparation, focus on healing, be patient, have no fear, be aware of distractions and Trust God through it all!

Kishma A. George will encourage your heart and motivate readers to use what they have! Be unique, authentic and never downgrade the gift and visions that come to you from the Lord! They shall come to pass; it has been declared!!

Pippa Ashley provides a moving depiction of the essence of love. She reminds readers of its purpose, importance, the way it should operate and move in the life of a believer.

Dr. Yomi Garnett boldly decrees on the necessity of a steadfast spirit that is essential in living out your dreams. Don’t wallow in your past rather learn from them. Preserverence is non-negotiable and if failure is experienced, its not over! Have faith and fight to be extraordinary!

Rodney Davis shares a powerful testimony on his personal journey towards reaching his own dreams. His story really ministered to me about how God loves using people with barren wombs to produce incredible outcomes!

Tammy Collins Markee encourages readers to be resilient towards the quest of walking towards your dreams. Like a powerful inferno we must keep our eye on the mark while maintaining a humble disposition as we represent him and understand that it’s His process.

Trina Bowers provides loving conviction on the importance of operating in loyalty in order to obtain favor in our own desires. At times we must serve and help others reach their own destiny before ours will come to pass. Selfishness not allowed!

These are just a sample of nuggets I personally obtained from this excellent read. Again I don’t have enough words to express how each one of these authors inspired me to change certain aspects of my spirit as I journey towards what God has for me.

Dreaming the Dream is available on in both paperback and kindle edition.

Purchase, read, share and be inspired!

READ THIS! – Ice Cream Kiss – J. Wright-Middleton 

The Real Life/Real Talk is proud to present its 2nd book recommendation!
This month is a featured powerful read entitled “Ice Cream Kiss” penned by Janelle Wright-Middleton.
This is an extrodinary true story of a young woman’s struggles as she transitions from childhood to teenager into a young adult and beyond. 

The focus is on her challenging relationship with her biological mother through each advance in her life. In Ice Cream Kiss, a young lady is being raised by a woman who lived with haunting desires to find  an ultimate love at just about any cost. In the process, this mother and daughter duo face extremely painful consequences in their individual and collective quests for acceptance. The accounts are riveting, thought provoking and heart wrenching. 

Triumph is obtained at the end, in revelation, accession, and discovery that God is the only true and consistent love that the  human heart truly  needs.

A copy of my Amazon Book Review is below. The book is available in paperback and Kindle Edition:

“Ice cream kiss was an exceptional read for me. A Short yet powerful non-fiction personal story that I had a hard time putting down! I concluded the book in a little more than one day. This story took me on a serious emotional roller coaster journey. I often smiled, sometimes laughed, reminisced, reflected, and ached because I could relate.

I highly recommend this book to any woman young or old. Especially the fatherless and those with strained mother/daughter relationships. Such an inspiring, poetic and real life blessing!”

Janelle Wright-Middleton is an Author, Play-Writer, Poet,  Talk Show Host, Motivational Speaker and Entrepreneur.
More so, she is an exhorter, survivor, encourager, prayer warrior and living testament on what her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ can and will do for a wounded spirit. 

Janelle is launching a stage play loosely based off of her book, Ice Cream Kiss. It’s entitled “Like Mother, Like Daughter, Like Me.” Tickets can be purchased now. Please see information below. It is sure to be just as powerful; if not more!

READ THIS! – Leadership – The I Am…Way



Several weeks ago I was asked by a couple of fellow bloggers what books I have read. I thought that this would be an excellent opportunity to share what I consider excellent reads! I am a devout fan of spiritual self empowerment books and those that tell stories of real life triumph. Books like these have been equivalent to life road maps and serve as mentoring and developmental tools for me. I am grateful for them all!

I am super excited to present to The RLRT readers my first book recommendation. It is entitled “Leadership – The I Am…Way” by Valerie Brown-Baul, MBA.

I know this wonderful lady personally and she is such a phenomenal leader, coach and mentor!

If you are one who longs to solidify your life’s purpose in order to angel your dreams consistently in a forward moving motion, I highly recommend getting to know “The I Am…Way”.

I concluded the book in two weeks. It is short yet one of the most powerful reads that I have encountered.  My  eyes were really opened to some aspects of my spirituality that I was not connecting back to my God given gifts.

“The I Am…Way” – which stands for – Impact, Action, Mastery is self reflective. A spiritual interactive analysis that provokes inner thought and a deep level of soul searching. It’s instructions and suggestions points readers to our Heavenly Father who is indeed, The Great I Am!
The book takes its readers on a journey to consider the health of the mind, body, soul, it’s will and emotions. Then it challenges one to determine if all align with the Will of God. (Get ready for homework with this one!)

I believe this book is a true simplistic way of how to really master life as a believer!

Leadership – “The I Am …Way” will certainly become a permanent presence in my library as a point of reference. Not just a one time read!

Read if you:

Feel called to lead 

Are a leader

Have big dreams

Struggle with identifying your purpose

And much much more!!
