The 8 Powers of a Woman

Author:JaOla Walker,D.D.

My sisters, my prayer is that you would see all the power and responsibility that God has put in your hands. When our power is misunderstood it is used by Satan to destroy us and those around us. When we operate under the direction of the Holy Spirit, you and I can become powerful weapons of warfare against Satan.

Growing Up Again

Author: Mary Tyler Moore

With generosity of spirit, ebullience, and sly humor, Mary Tyler Moore presents the intensely private, often funny, and sometimes startling story of her life with diabetes. Growing Up Again is a delightfully candid read for her legion of fans, the more than 20 million Americans with diabetes, and everyone struggling to cope with life’s unexpected challenges.

Mary Tyler Moore, actress and activist, relates the highs and lows of living with type 1 diabetes for the past forty years. With inspired, well-crafted prose, she drills down to the most heartfelt, yet universal truths about life—including the lives of those with diabetes. She unflinchingly chronicles her struggle with diabetes, as well as her successful rehabilitation from alcohol dependence, all while deriving gratification from her roles as an actress, mother, businesswoman, campaigner, and fund-raiser. Her revealing tales of both her successes and failures in coping with diabetes offer others with the disease guidance and inspiration through example. In the book, stories include her rebounding from a low-blood-sugar episode during a Mary Tyler Moore Show script reading after the director poured orange juice down her throat, to misadventures caused by diabetes-related vision impairment at a dimly lit party for John Travolta.
She also taps into the vast diabetes research network to talk to diabetic children and adults and with leading experts who are discovering new ways to control diabetes and its complications, and pursuing new ways to cure this disease.

Finding Platinum

Author: Sonya Taylor

Finding Platinum: A Magic City Memoir, is the highly anticipated novel from Sonya Taylor, who spent several years as an adult entertainer at one of the most legendary gentlemen's clubs in the world - the infamous Magic City in Atlanta, GA. Amongst the glitter and glamour of the high-priced lifestyle of exotic dancing, sex, and drugs is the poignant tale of a streetwise, coquettish young woman born and raised on the tough streets of Detroit, who migrated to the heart of the south in the late 80s and early 90s, and grew up under the dazzle of the strobe lights and the salacious eyes of men with power, money, and prestige. This book, the first in a trilogy, is a powerful love story. It revolves around the love of money, fame, and fast living. It shows how they all collided at a deadly intersection in the life of this bright, young woman. At times, her life seemed so glamorous and exciting on the outside, but it was marred by heartbreak, tragedy, and senseless murders. This book explains how life's lessons that sometimes cost so much, often show that their value is worth every dime. For more information or to order the book, please visit: www.FindingPlatinum.com, or email Sonya at: Sonya@findingplatinum.com. Born on June 2, 1968 in Mount Clemens, Michigan, raised into poverty and welfare in the city of Detroit, Sonya Taylor knew what it was like to be underprivileged, and she knew the endurance of the struggle. Taylor decided at a young age to overcome her situations, and not forget the circumstances that brought her and her family to a place of serenity, or at least a few minutes of temporary relief. As a child, Taylor had little interest in literature, but she discovered the joy of reading and writing at the age of 12. Her preference of poetry and creative-thought writing, is what Taylor has been focusing on these past years leading up to her first book, "Finding Platinum, A Magic City Memoir".

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man

Authors: Steve Harvey

Steve Harvey, the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years, whether it's through the "Strawberry Letters" segment of his program or while on tour for his comedy shows. These are women who can run a small business, keep a household with three kids in tipt op shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. Yet when it comes to relationships, they can't figure out what makes men tick. Why? According to Steve it's because they're asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man. In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve lets women inside the mindset of a man and sheds lights on concepts and questions such as:
The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?
How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.
When to introduce the kids. And what to read into the first interaction between your date and your kids.
The five questions every woman should ask a man to determine how serious he is.
And more... Sometimes funny, sometimes direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships.
