a Rafflecopter giveaway

Genre: Devotional







Instead of giving you a formal third person description of myself, I’m going to be transparent. The same way I present myself in ministry, my book, my blog, the way I am in real life. I’m passionate, enlightening and formalities may dilute the true message of what I want to deliver. I grew up a small town girl who involuntarily learned a lot of things the hard way. My childhood was stolen at the tender age of four and after years of abuse I decided to liberate myself through accomplishments. My trophies and awards shined brightly but my soul grew darker as I started to adopt and carry out self-inflicted abuse. Fearing a return to my impoverished beginnings I became a serial perfectionist. If things weren’t flawless, I would perpetually beat myself up until I fixed it. As I was bringing down the hammer on myself for the umpteenth time, God grabbed my hand and I looked up to behold the Son of Glory. He showed me a new way. I learned that acceptance, forgiveness and grace is more effective in change than punishment. I would continue to fall, but instead of the whip, I used something a lot fiercer: the double-edged Word of God.









Having her innocence stolen at the age of four, she would grow up relentlessly betrayed, oppressed, and longing for unconditional love. In Seven Days of Redemption, the companion devotional to the inspirational memoir, “Cinderella’s Still Going to the Ball”, Dr. Shaunte’ McFarland gives an exclusive glimpse inside her process of healing and restoration. This devotional is a seven-day journey of strength, acceptance and grace. Endowing you with the irresistible unction to shout, I Am Redeemed!!

HOW HARD IS IT TO FORGIVE?

After finding the biological mother who abandoned her as a baby, learning the identity of her birth father and her biological brother, Dupree is left distraught and betrayed. Like a volcano about to erupt, she vows to have nothing to do with her newly discovered family--so help her God! However, if Dupree's mother, Tiny, has anything to say about it, Dupree won't be able to keep that vow.
How does a former teenaged runaway become a wealthy, sophisticated business executive? Tiny's quest for happiness and independence in Kingston, Jamaica, has taken her on a life-altering journey through hell. After a vicious attack and a serious sickness that leaves her fighting for her life in the hospital, Tiny prays for death . . . but then God speaks. Will she listen to His voice? What exactly is He saying?



Mama Pearl tiptoed slowly toward the old cars, her steps hesitant but determined. The first few cars she looked into were empty. She continued toward the back when a bad odor filled her nose. With her face twisted up, Mama Pearl took deep breaths as she continued walking.

A scream lodged in her throat as she approached the last car. “Oh, dear Lord,” Mama Pearl whispered in shock. Two pieces of sticks, resembling legs, were hanging out the opened back door. Her heart slamming against her chest, Mama Pearl walked closer and saw the scrawny, young girl shaking uncontrollably in the backseat. She smelled like rotten garbage. Tears filled Mama Pearl’s eyes.

Mama Pearl tiptoed slowly toward the old cars, her steps hesitant but determined. The first few cars she looked into were empty. She continued toward the back when a bad odor filled her nose. With her face twisted up, Mama Pearl took deep breaths as she continued walking.

A scream lodged in her throat as she approached the last car. “Oh, dear Lord,” Mama Pearl whispered in shock. Two pieces of sticks, resembling legs, were hanging out the opened back door. Her heart slamming against her chest, Mama Pearl walked closer and saw the scrawny, young girl shaking uncontrollably in the backseat. She smelled like rotten garbage. Tears filled Mama Pearl’s eyes.

Mama Pearl quickly rested the box in her hand on top of the car and leaned inside to look at the young girl. Suddenly, two pair of red, haunted eyes stared up at her, piercing her soul.

“Help me,” the weak voice begged a little above a whisper.

Mama Pearl gasped loudly and pulled her head out of the car. She cushioned her weak body against the car as her jelly feet felt as if they were about to crumble. “Lord, dear Lord,” Mama Pearl muttered. “Dear Lord, dear Lord.”

Mama Pearl was not a stranger to the homeless people scattered all over Kingston. She was a long-standing viewer of the poverty that hit so many Jamaicans and only seemed to get worse, day by day.

Her heart bled as she turned and stared at the sick child again. She looked as if she was a minute away from death’s door.
Tiny rambled some gibberish and moaned in agony as sharp needles pricked her all over her ice-cold body. Her teeth chattered, and her eyes rolled around listlessly in her head.






Theresa A. Campbell is the author of the captivating novels, "Are You There, God?" and "God Has Spoken." She was born and raised in Jamaica West Indies.

About The Book

book cover

Leah Westwood loves her husband Jacob with all her heart, even as the smoldering glances of her ex-flame Vincent Miller continue to affect her. What she once shared with Vincent threatens to rip apart the bonds she is trying to build with her husband.
Jacob's heart belongs to Leah, but his body refuses to accept that. Rachel is the one who has been his mainstay at the most difficult times in his life. How could he leave her alone?
Vincent wants Leah back and all he has to do is watch and wait as Jacob and Leah's relationship unravels.
Ultimately, Leah must make a choice . . . between fantasy and fidelity.

SECRET CRAVING

“J-hun, can you get the door? I’m watching these steaks right now. That’s probably Glenn and a friend of his,” Leah called out as she scurried around the kitchen. Her pots and pans hissed and steamed on the stove. After a couple of moments, she heard the doorbell ring again. She rolled her eyes and blew out a breath. Jacob hadn’t come downstairs yet.

“J-hun! Can you get the door, please? I’m busy in the kitchen here!” she yelled again. When he didn’t answer, she groaned as she washed and dried her hands quickly and ran down the hall to the back door.

The instant she opened the door, Glenn smiled. “Hey, Leah!” The February wind wasn’t as chilly today.

“Glenn, how good to see you. Come in!” She hugged him in a swift manner, worried about the food. “Come in. Jacob will be down in a moment. He’s just finishing getting dressed. I gotta check on the food so make yourself comfortable. I know you brought somebody with you. Tell them to close the door. You can put your coats on the couch and I’ll put them up.” With that, she ran back to the kitchen and checked on the steaks. Good, they hadn’t burned yet. Taking a fork, she tested the tenderness. As she took the steaks out of the pan, she heard the door close and the murmur of voices. Probably Glenn talking to his friend.

“Hey, guys! Come on in the kitchen and take a seat at the table,” she called out and ran to her pot of whole potatoes and fresh string beans. They were done. She turned off the pot and dumped the contents in the strainer in the kitchen sink, draining them. Picking up the bowl next to the sink, she transported the potatoes and beans. Whirling over to the oven, she opened it. Large, golden brown yeast rolls met her critical eye. Withdrawing them, she intoned, “Give us this day our daily bread.”

Footsteps sounded on the tile in the kitchen. She barely glanced behind her as she said, “Go ahead and sit down. Dinner will be ready in a few.” Seeing Jacob hadn’t come down yet, Leah screamed once more, “J-hun! Baby! Dinner is almost ready! Hurry up!”
She heard the door to his office open from upstairs. “Sorry, Leah girl.

Just finished a call.”

“Well, come on. Our guests are here. You can conduct business later.”
“Coming!” She heard him walk to the bathroom and close the door.
She placed the bowl of potatoes and string beans on the island counter. She glanced up just in time to see a pair of feet disappear from the kitchen. Glenn answered her unspoken question as he said, “He forgot his phone in the car.”

“Oh.” She positioned the bowl on the table and placed the platter of steaks next to it, then went back to the stove to glaze the rolls with butter. The back door opened at the same time Jacob’s feet treaded on the stairs.

“Hey! How’s it going?” Jacob greeted. Leah’s brow furrowed a bit as she tried to think who of Glenn’s friends Jacob knew.

After she had placed the rolls on a plate, she turned and placed it on the table.
“Leahgirl, look who’s here.”

She glanced up and saw Vincent Miller stare at her with those dark eyes that gleamed and assessed her. She gulped. The word gorgeous didn’t begin to describe the man. On her wedding day, she’d taken little note of it. But now, in the confines of the house, his attractiveness drew her with a magnetic quality. Her eyes couldn’t stop taking him in. His body, sheathed with tightly contoured coal black skin, emanated an almost luminescent sheen of power held in check. His hair, short cropped and smooth, sat above broad, firmly pressed eyebrows. The lids with their heavily fringed lashes rested above the eyes she’d seen in all kinds of lighting, from a bright overhead lamplight in a kitchen to the dimness of a bedroom.

The smoothness of his face was interrupted by a light, neat scruff of a beard. It added to the tamed arrogance beneath the surface. He had a good mouth, full with a thin, manicured mustache, and his nose, a tad too narrow, supplemented the arresting handsomeness of his face.

His body, as she knew, had fluid, compact muscles along his arms, to his stomach and his legs. Clothes rested on him almost gladly and tonight was no exception. The fitted long-sleeved gray sweater showed his toned arms to perfection and the gunmetal-colored jeans hugged his legs like a woman’s hands.

She took in all of this in the space of a brief glance and then she reacted. “Hey, Vincent!” she screamed as she ran and hugged him. The rock-like impact against her softness flooded heat to her face and she made sure to keep the embrace short. “How are you!” she asked with false cheeriness.

“I’m fine. Thanks for having me. Sure smells good in here.” His voice, deep as always, flowed over her like a caress.

How could that be? How could the man still have this effect on her? They hadn’t touched each other in years. Shouldn’t she be over it by now?
