Somebody Prayed for Me by Various Artists
Allyson M. Deese opens this spiritual experience with the title piece, "Somebody Prayed For Me," a heartfelt poem that reminds us of the importance of prayer. There are so many things we could have been in life but somebody prayed for you and for me. And now we must pray for others because prayer does change things. In Silent Cries, Linda R. Herman shares the tale of a teen-aged mother who suffers abuse and rape at the hands of the person she loves. Rape is devastating at any age, but imagine a seventeen year-old girl struggling to get past the pain. With prayer, it is possible. Tinisha N. Johnson’s short story, Facing Reality, opens our eyes to how much our children are influenced by our actions. A mother tries to drown her sorrows in alcohol but doesn’t realize the affect her behavior has upon her twelve-year-old daughter until she makes a shocking discovery. Every piece was written with the hope of inspiring and reminding everyone of the importance of prayer.

Consequences by Linda R. Herman
In Consequences, readers are taken on a journey into the lives of a down-low husband, his wife, his lovers, and a cast of others who are affected, whether directly or indirectly, by the HIV virus. The story is fiction but the reality of HIV is fact, and the reality is that each year there are thousands of new cases diagnosed-most of those new cases being women of color and minority. It has to end; and it has to end where it begins-with each one of us.

Unstoppable Woman by Cynthia Kersey
Want to secure a promotion, write a book, go back to school, lose weight, set up a business? Whatever the goal, Cynthia Kersey's new book, Unstoppable Women, can help readers achieve it. Based on the same principles that Kersey has taught in her training programs for such companies as Tupperware®, Mary Kay®, and Jafra Cosmetics®, the book shows how to identify a goal, create a winning mind-set, and break the goal down into daily actions that will lead to success.
