Acknowledgements

I am overexcited about my first book being released. God made an exception for me and made so many things possible! God is faithful! I want to express gratitude towards my husband, my children, my family (especially my siblings, Cedric, Ericka, Joshua and Tiffany (also my editor) and friends (especially- Jessica Owens & Angie Ned). You guys’ support was just as special as each of you are to me. And special thanks to one of my spiritual leaders, Prophettess Barbara Calloway! Your prayers and your course “The Pour” is what propelled me to step out in faith into the purpose God has for me. I love you ALL very much.



Dedications

This book is dedicated to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who found me where I was, restored me and made me whole in preparation for my husband. Thank You forever.

To my Husband – You’re such an amazing man and I will forever be smitten by your love for me and our story!

To my late Mother, Shirley Jean Hill – Thank you for passing along the gift of writing to me. Thank you for being the example you were which is the sheer epitome of the woman I am today. It was you who led me to Christ and I hope you’re looking down from Heaven at me with a smile on your face.

To all of my Daughters – Love God. Love yourself. Allow real love to find you where you are!

To my earthly Father, Cedric C. Hill, who passed away this year, thank you for being a good father to me. You demonstrated what a real man is. You loved my family unconditionally! Lacy and I take great pride and joy knowing that we were the two whom God allowed to speak with you hours before you transitioned. I relayed your message and we too will love you forever.


Intrigue Me

Being young and naive, like many women, I thought I found love in a man when that was far from the truth. God revealed to me how He’d been there, even then, waiting for me to invite Him into my heart and allow Him to be Lord over my life. The issue that caused my marriage to come to an abrupt end is also the event that positioned me to experience the kind of love that I’d longed for since childhood. Real love- Unconditional love … Agape love which is the highest form of love for it is the love of God for mankind . While worshiping, my entire perspective of what love is shifted. I became aware that, firstly, there is no love more powerful than the love of God. Nothing or nobody in the world could offer me the kind of love God has given to me. Secondly, my children will hear love and experience love in my household. This will prevent them from growing up and looking for love in all the wrong places like I did. And lastly, my next husband will be a resemblance of God’s love for me. He will know the real me, my weaknesses and flaws and still love me. This shift in perspective caused me to slow down on rushing God to send my husband because the man that God was sending would be a special kind of man. He would be a man who would offer God’s idea of love, not the worlds …
