Create Your Women of a New Sisterhood Audio Presentation

Hello!
I would like to invite you to create an audio presentation for Women of a New Sisterhood.  I understand we are all busy women, so I created a simple way to share your story on the webinars.  Here’s a way for you to pre-record your message on your own schedule.  Listed below are the details on how to create the audio campaign and the materials needed.  We look forward to showcasing your service, company or your book within the next 30-60 days!  Read this entire page to answer most of your questions.  It’s long, but I want you to have all of the information to make the process seamless.

YOUR INFORMATION WILL GO HERE:

Women of a New Sisterhood Online Conference
Website: bit.ly/1UQJ9gY

 

1.  Select a topic that’s important to you and prepare a speech for our audience. Create your webinar in the TED TALK fashion of presentation. Introduce yourself, give the title of your session.  Next, explain  what we will learn today. Give a 1-minute intro into how you can serve the Women of a New Sisterhood community and what your company/book/wisdom offers the audience.
 
Next move into your planned speech. Imagine them right before you!  Ask them questions. Give them a call to action.  Pull them into this ‘conversation’ and really show them how much you care about their success.  Practice or plan what you want to say before recording.

 

2.  Please do not make multiple recordings. If you make a mistake simply stop the recording by pressing the (#) pound key. You can re-record as many times as you like, just don’t hang up to stop recording. Multiple recordings will slow down the entire process for ALL of the other speakers.  You can record up to 55 minutes!  Do not go over.
 
Try to keep it entertaining and informative. The first 10 minutes are crucial to holding the online listener’s attention for the entire session. This email breaks down the process of recording to the finest detail. I will need your recording back within 5 days.
 


3. At the end of your presentation, share your websites, blogs and all your social media info.  Let the audience be sold on your expertise.  Do not mention a time sensitive offer or discount because this recording will be re-purposed several times over the next few months. If you make an offer, it has to be something that is available months from now.


4.  Please do not mention any dates, times or any events.   If you mention dates or events it limits what I can do with the recordings. It limits your presentation’s visibility on future programs.  You can gently promote your service, charity, book, product or signature program at the end.  If you have any books, please submit the bookseller details. Submit your confirmation and promotional material as soon as possible.

I Believe in Butterflies by Marian L. Thomas

A new book written by Award Winning Author, Marian L. Thomas
will no doubt spark fresh debates on the one drop rule
when it launches in May, 2017


The book, I Believe In Butterflies, is a fictional story that follows three women as they navigate life’s often rocky terrain in search of hope, courage, and love. One of the main characters, Lorraine—has lived twenty-three years believing that she is a white woman. When she discovers that her long-held belief is nothing more than a fallacy, all she has held dear is shattered.

“At the heart of Lorraine’s story, lies the foundation of what the one drop rule represents—social classification,” Thomas stated.

The one-drop rule is a historical term for the social classification of individuals with black ancestry. It dates back to 1624 but was coded into law in 1924. Some celebrities including Halle Berry accept the one drop rule. The actress cited the one drop rule when the question arose about whether her daughter with her ex-partner, Gabriel Aubry (French-Canadian) was white or black. In an interview with Ebony magazine, Berry stated, “I feel she’s black. I’m black and I’m her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory.”

Born to a white mother and a black father, outgoing president, Barack Obama fully identifies himself as black. When asked to declare his race on a 2010 census questionnaire, Mr. Obama checked the box for African American although he could have checked white or black and white.

There are celebrities, however, that take a firm stand on the rejection of the one-drop rule. So whether they are for it or against it, I Believe In Butterflies just might give the one drop rule new life, or at the most, create a platform for discussion on the topic.

I Believe in Butterflies is the second book that Thomas has written that broaches the issue of race. The other being- Blue Butterfly. She said: “People ask me why I use butterflies in some of my book titles. My books are written for women, and as women, we go through the caterpillars of life that transform us into something beautiful.”

 

 

Book Review:  I Believe in Butterflies

“I Believe in Butterflies is about self-discovery on many levels and at many ages. It’s about black and white relationships, music and mystery, and questions of love on. As lies, truths, and growth intersect, readers are drawn into a story that’s ultimately about finding and keeping peace. What is the real face of freedom, and how can past experience be overcome to regain new family connections?

“I Believe in Butterflies asks many questions, provides many answers, and ultimately comes full circle after traversing changing worlds and lives. As bridges between past and future are formed, readers swept along in the rising tide of emotion and discovery framed by I Believe in Butterflies will find this a powerful saga of black lives and family ties transformed by truth.

“Readers seeking powerful, evocative stories of self-discovery and connection will relish this pull on one’s heartstrings for its psychological depth and focus on concurrent life journeys that hold both puzzles and, ultimately, solutions.”
-D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

I Believe In Butterflies will be available in paperback formats on online retail sites including Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.

Don’t Give Up by Marlena Lewis

Don’t Give Up by Marlena Lewis

The basis of my story is to tell someone that is facing some of the same circumstances that I am going through is that they are not alone.

We all have struggles in our lives that seem like we can never get past them, but if we can learn to trust in the Lord, he will help us. I tell my story of feeling helpless at times and not knowing where to turn.

When I looked back over my life I began to think about my spiritual family life. My parents never gave up on thirteen kids. I have hope and confidence now that I can do the same for my life.

 

Review Written by Quiniece Sheppard
Hope in a dying world!  Marlena Lewis shares her story of struggle and triumph in her book titled “Don’t Give Up”.

The title itself is encouraging. Marlena Lewis gives an encouraging word to her readers telling them not to give up and to persevere through the hardships and trials. It is a book that offers hope and encouragement to those who are suffering.

Don’t give up and look to Jesus who is the author and finisher of your faith. It’ll get better afterwhile. Great book and I recommend it to those who need a little bit of push to keep going no matter what.

 

Excerpt:  Don’t Give Up

I grew up in a small town about twenty miles outside of Selma, Alabama. A place of great historic moments; some of which changed African American lives forever. Nobody’s family is perfect, and being the tenth child of thirteen kids, I don’t think I need to discuss any further the matters concerning poverty, verbal abuse, and what today’s society would label as physical abuse. I mean, back then, anyone could give you a whooping for something you did wrong, and you would straighten yourself right up and think twice about your actions in the future. But today, we see spankings as abuse, and parents nowadays will not touch their children out of fear of punishment and being seen as a child abuser. What can I say…spare the rod and spoil the child.

In struggling with trying to adapt to military life, marriage, and being separated from my only child, I have learned that God has never left me, and He has really kept me from losing my mind. Yeah, we often feel like something good is about to happen any day now with all we have going on in our lives, but we have to remember to keep our eyes on the prize. The prize is not all the stuff that distracts us every day, but it is Jesus; our Lord and Savior.

Some supernatural strength kept me going when I did not have the energy, or the will, to keep going. That power was Jesus and my prayers to Him. He heard them, and in the midst of the tears, He would tell me to keep it up, don’t give up. He had so many more challenges He wanted me to endure to increase my hope and faith in Him.

I cried out, “Jesus is this it?”

“No, Marlena. This is only the beginning.”

Just when I thought I could not take anything else, and after serving about twelve years in the military, I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. I was in the Army reserves serving part-time duty at a center in Rockville, Maryland. When I initially started feeling ill, I was in the field at Fort Dix, New Jersey, preparing for my unit to depart to Iraq. I had been there for about two weeks, when all of a sudden, I started feeling very fatigued and my body started hurting all over. At first I just thought it was just the normal field stuff that you get while out training. I tried to shrug it off because I was a soldier, and I did not want to appear weak to my peers.

Love Under Contract (Jenkins & Sons Construction) by Sharon C. Cooper

 Love Under Contract by Sharon C. Cooper

Timing is everything!

 

Sumeera Robinson refuses to settle for less than she desires, even if what she craves is the sexy, smart, and charming Nicolas Jenkins-Moore. At her age, she wants marriage and a family, not the empty promises Nick offers. Yet, there is just something about the man that makes moving on nearly impossible.

As the new senior manager of Jenkins & Sons Construction, Nick’s five-year plan is on track with marriage and starting a family at the bottom of the list. Sumeera is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside, but not even she can entice him to abandon his carefully plotted road to success. That is until she walks away without looking back, leaving him yearning for her presence in his life.

Nick is determined to convince Sumeera that he wants the same things she wants. But will an unexpected development keep them from the life they desire? Or will fate bring them closer than they’ve ever been before?

Love Under Contract by Sharon C. Cooper Top Customer Reviews

 

4.0 out of 5 stars By Changing2faces
Reconnecting always have those inner doubts of whether one is doing the right thing for the right reasons. I agree and am a firm believer in planning and preparation, but I also understand that God’s plan trumps anything man may put in place.

As Sharon, takes us on the journey of Nick and Sumeera is was great to see the Jenkins family play such a pivotal role. Not to mention I love the fatherly advice Lewis provided Nick. Both when seeking to obtain Sumeera’s trust and love, as well as, once having their happily ever after.

One point that I really am interested in knowing more about is Russell, Sumeera’s father. What caused him to be who he was. What truly impacted his and Mona’s relationship. I also want more from Johnetta and Miguel. Especially with her relocating to be with him. A nice little novella to tackle these two mature older couples would be nice.

Overall you’ll smile, laugh, and even get frustrated as you read Nick and Sumeera’s story, but in the end you’ll love and root for their success. Good job Sharon on continuing with the Jenkins family.

 

 

5.0 out of 5 stars  By Kindle Customer
Love Under Contract (Jenkins and Sons Construction) is a very sweet and sensual romance novel that earned a rating of five stars. I enjoyed reading this installment of the Jenkins and Sons Construction series and catching up with family members of the Jenkins family. Nick’s love story was was exciting and Sweet and I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading good romantic novels.

 

4.0 out of 5 stars By Amazon Customer
Love Under Contract is such an amazing love story. Talk about not realizing what you’ve got until it’s gone. Sharon C. Cooper kept me glued to my seat and my tablet open until the very end.

One of my favorite series of all time is her Jenkins Family series and now that all of the lovely Jenkins women have found their happily ever after Mrs. Cooper is moving on to men in the Jenkins family. What a strong start it was. Nick is by far every girls fantasy but he’s not ready for love or at least that’s what he thinks until Sumeera becomes the one that got away.

You will love reading about them and their story. There’s some twists and turns but nothing that takes away from the their story of love and finding the one.

And Then There Was Me by Sadeqa Johnson

AND THEN THERE WAS ME
by Sadeqa Johnson


“And Then There Was Me is a well-written, thought-provoking novel that many women will relate to.” —Kimberla Lawson Roby, New York Times best-selling author of Copycat

 

“A story of one woman’s journey toward the life she deserves, with plenty of satisfying and surprising twists along the way.” —Kirkus Reviews
Bea and Awilda have been best friends from the moment Awilda threw her fourteen year-old self across Bea’s twin-sized bed as if they had known each other forever. Bubbly, adventurous Awilda taught sheltered, shy Bea how to dress, wear her hair and what to do with boys. She even introduced Bea to her husband, Lonnie, in college, who pledged to take good care of her for the rest of their lives. But philanderer Lonnie breaks that promise over and over again, leaving Bea to wrestle with her self-esteem and long time secret addiction.

Recently Lonnie has plopped the family in a New Jersey upper class suburb, which lacks the diversity that Bea craves but has the school district and zip code envy that Lonnie wants. The demands of carrying a third child and fitting into this new environment while pretending that her husband is not cheating on her again, is more than she can handle. And just when she thinks things can’t get any worst, the ultimate deception snaps the little thread that was holding her life together and all comes tumbling down.

And Then There Was Me is the story of love and friendship, heartache and betrayal. It’s the journey of a woman stripped down to her lowest point and needing to find the will to press on.
