Ten Things We Want You To Know From The Women Who Have Come Before You
This book is dedicated to all women, young and mature. My desire is that after reading this book you truly know that you are a gift from God. That you embrace the fact that there is nothing you can do or not do to stop God from loving you.
You are perfect in His eyes. He loves you no matter what you have or have not done. He loved you before you were formed in your mother’s womb and He loves you now. He loved you so much that He gave the life of His only begotten son that whosoever believes shall not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
Make Jesus the Lord of your life and come back into fellowship with your Father if you have not been connected to Him recently. Run to Him as He pursues you with His love constantly. God will give you beauty for ashes. No matter what you have been through, God only sees you as his beautiful daughter, the apple of His eye.

What others are saying…
I want to dedicate this book to all of the amazing women who have guided me, mentored me, believed in me, befriended me, and loved me over the course of my life. I have been blessed to have many women who helped me through life, through school, throughout my career, and through the many hard times that life may bring. Each one of you know who you are. Thank you so much for taking the time to care about and help another woman achieve more in life. I can never repay you but will continue to sow those same seeds in the lives of other women.
I want to thank my prayer partner and confidant, my best friends, my sisters in love vs. blood, and my birth sister, as well as my stepsister. I want to thank my mother-in-love and my stepdaughter for their support. I also want to thank my mom and my aunt for their love. This book is dedicated to my grandmother, Lucille Wilkerson, who guided me throughout my life until her passing when I was 24 yeasrs old. Lucy, as she was affectionaltely called, or grandma to me, was a woman with very limited formal education but could help me with my school work all the way through high school. She never attended seminary but knew the bible as well as anyone I have ever met. She served in the church and loved her family. She taught me the meaning of unconditional love and she set my life on a path for
Grandma was very soft spoken but did speak her mind. She supported my every dream and let me know all things are possible through Christ. I am sure her prayers sustained me throughout my teenage years and young adult life. My grandma was very special to me and I am sure many of you have or had a similar relationship with your grandmas. This book is dedicated to your “Lucy” if you were blessed to have someone, any woman, show you unconditional love.
1 Always Be Yourself
We live in a world where very few thins are really as they seem. Women have body altering surgeries to appear to be something that they are not because of the body image and beauty pressures of society. Men sexxually harass and assault women and lie about it to continue to hold positions of power. Politicians (all parties) lie for points in the polls. We have wars for many reasons that many of us don’t understand. We still have people who hate us, as Americans, waiting for another opportunity to kill us by the thousands. We no longer identify a clear right and wrong in many instances in society. Everything is grey in many people’s minds. no matter what your view of the world may be, there are definites. One definite is that every person will ask themselves “Who am I” at some point in life.
Some people seem to know and understand themselves from birth and others take decades to figure out the answer to who we are. If you are someone in the process of defining yourself, let me comfort you. Very few people truly know who they are even if they seem to have it all together. I know more about myself than ever before, but I am still in the process. the bottom line is find out that
who you are requires answering a series of questions not just that one. Also, as long as you are alive, you are hopefully continuing to change and grow as a person.
To figure out who we are now, we must all ask ourselves a series of questions. Each of us must find out the answers to: who created me, what is my purpose in life, what are my core beliefs, and what does all of this mean as far as how I relate to the people and the world around me.
Who created me? God intentionally made each of us unique individuals. God purposefully made you just as you are. You are not flawless, but you are perfect because God made you in His image (Genesis 1:26).
What is my purpose in life? There is something God created you to do and nobody else can fulfill that purpose. Don’t compare yourself or your life to others. You are special and unique. God knew you before He formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). God numbered every hair on your head (Matthew 10:30). He knows every freckle on your face. He has studied each and every one of us. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). It is a freeing revelation to know that all of the things that people call “quirks”, and all of the things that people consider “ugly”, “unattractive”,
