Testimonials & Reviews
I loved, loved, loved the Book!
Hello Kessan!! I'm Nisha's best friend I have seen you quite a few times in church and at family services; however I just wanted to stop by and let you know I love your book and it touched my soul. I already loved the way you minister to us in dance but after reading your story I can feel why you’re such a blessing. Thank you very much for sharing and I pray God continue to use and strengthen you during your journey, I have already told most of the young ladies that I know and will continue to do so.
After reading Tired of Crying I was in amazement because we would talk about some of the things you were going through during that time but I never really knew the extent of all that you had endured. Your life is truly a testimony and will inspire women who have been through these type of situations to seek GOD and know that he accepts us, forgives us and gives us the strength to move forward. I commend you for being so open and honest and willing to reach out to others. I am so proud of you for stepping out on faith because your book has inspired me seek a deeper connection with GOD.
Love it ! I was full of all kinds of emotions and knowing that this book is such an inspiration to all of us no matter where we are on our walk with God we will be able to be reminded of your words and experiences and know God will never leave us and will even allow certain things to happen only to help us see how much He really loves us. Sorry for the run on sentence...lol. Thanks so much for your obedience.
This book is a beautiful expression of the struggles that many women go through. It is a story that is often untold. I can only speak from my prior experiences many of which are quite similar to that of Kessan's. Kessan I commend you for having the courage to tell your story and my hope is that it falls into the hands of readers that need to read it most. The young women that are suffering from some of the same trials and tribulations; that feel helpless amongst their circumstances. May they find peace in knowing that they too,can overcome any obstacle as long as they seek GOD out and have faith. God bless!
