By Kinyatta Gray
Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things we will ever have to face. But, imagine being the only child of an adopted mother and with no biological family to lean on when God calls her home. October 21, 2018 – the day Kinyatta’s life as she once knew it would forever be changed, leaving her to embrace a new perspective on earth, alone.
In this memoir, 30 Days: Surviving the Trauma and Unexpected Loss of a Single Parent as an Only Child, Kinyatta reflects on a 30-day period that changed the course of her life. She’ll uncover some of her deepest pain, greatest joys, unspeakable trauma, and how she allowed love to heal. Kinyatta’s honesty is brutal, but her truth is the only vessel that gives her hope to continue living the life that memorializes her mother’s legacy.
Whether you’ve lost a spouse, child, parent, sibling, relative, or friend, Kinyatta desires to meet you in your grief and walk with you there. This amazing read composed of brief chapters is designed to be digested one chapter per day, giving you bite-sized bits of comfort, encouragement, and healing over some time. You do not have to read it this way, of course. Read in the way that is most natural and helpful for you. Everyone grieves differently, but the one thing that is the same is that we all grieve after losing someone we love.

Living Life After the Fires of my Sorrows
Obedience to the call of God doesn’t mean there won’t be obstacles along the way.
In Living Life After the Fires of my Sorrows, author Reba Harris chronicles her harrowing journey from childhood trauma to success! In over sixty years, Reba has navigated through poverty, her mother’s heartbreaking betrayal, being victimized by injustice and racism, a strained marriage, and overcoming addiction. With little education, minimal direction and no idea what to do with it, Reba attached her faith to the word she received from God and started a recovery home ministry for women. And just like Nehemiah in the Bible (whom she likens herself to), Reba has remained courageous and steadfast through the many oppositions she faced as she strives to complete the will of God.
Through Living Life After the Fires, Reba deftly transforms her personal testimony into a throng of inspiration that will uplift, motivate and challenge readers to live outside the borders of trauma and believe that they can win!
