New Release | Gifted To Fight
If we look around our society, we see that fighting is rewarded or even deemed as a form of entertainment, but, we never see it as the results of what’s going on within. Fighting, on a physical level, only, comes from what has not been dealt with on a spiritual level. It takes confronting the deep parts of ourselves in order for healing to even begin. Gifted to fight is not aimed to teach how well a physical fight should be presented, but how you can fight through doubts, fears, weaknesses, temptations and so much more. These poetic words presented in this book, open the door to how persevering through trials and tribulations grants us the title of “Gifted to Fight”.

Unborn tells a story of a young girl who’s way was lost. Decisions were made out of immaturity and not enough wise counsel had been received. Going through the motions of life was all it was. To disregard life haphazardly not only affected her life but others as well. There was always a feeling of “there has to be something more”. Unfortunately, seeking for more was done the wrong way. Amazingly, somewhere in the midst of the storms (outward and inward), strength and a drive to want better arose. The only way she was able to find it was from the one who gave it to her, Jesus.
