Fresh Courage to Believe
Fresh courage to believe is a note of encouragement…to those short on hope, struggling to see beyond a painful past or difficult circumstance, or in need of a renewed vision for their lives…those who have fearlessly summoned the courage and strength to take bold steps in the direction of their destiny, despite looming uncertainty…creatives waiting patiently to receive that second wind that will breathe new life through artistic inspiration…anyone trying to find their footing as they transition to a new phase of life, or someone just having a bad day. In one way or another, each piece seeks to remind readers how their unique experiences can serve to strengthen their resolve; how those experiences collectively represent the sum total of their life’s journey, reflecting key elements of God’s ultimate plan for their lives.
Rediscovering Dad and Discovering Myself: A Journey Through the Impact of Alzheimer’s
By Brandon Burke
Brandon Burke grew up not always having the closest relationship with his father. However, as life would have it, his father’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s in 2015 afforded the opportunity for Brandon not only to become closer to his father but also to become his steadfast caregiver. Through this disease, Brandon has found his passion and inspiration to help others who are in similar situations by sharing his experiences. Brandon tells the story of his relationship with his father growing up, leading up to him being diagnosed, and he hopes to shed some light on a devastating diagnosis and his family history of Alzheimer’s.
“It is my hope that this book will provide a path for Alzheimer’s caregivers to follow so that they will know they are not alone; shed light on the role of caregivers who are often unsung heroes when it comes to serious and/or terminal illnesses; bring more awareness to the world about the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease; and highlight the bond between father and son,” Brandon relates.
Rediscovering Dad & Discovering Myself: A Journey Through the Impact of Alzheimer’s is a compassionate and insightful journey with Brandon Burke, as he comes to understand the immense impact that his father had on his life.

An Unexpected Love For Christmas
In “An Unexpected Love for Christmas,” (sequel to the best-selling novelette, “A Leap of Faith”) Allison is beautiful, spoiled, judgmental, and doesn’t mind making it known that the only way to live, is by her own terms. Although she desires a relationship, any man wanting a second glance from Allison better look even better on paper than he does in person – which automatically eliminates handsome, hard-working Ronald McMurray from her potential list of suitors.
Ronald McMurray’s janitorial business receives a huge contract over the Christmas holidays, which happens to be where Allison’s financial firm is located. More interested in raising his ten-year-old daughter Rolanda, working and upholding his Christian values than casual dating, southern gentleman Ronald isn’t impressed with Allison’s beauty and material success which suits her just fine since he falls short of her strict standards. A long-term relationship with Ronald is out of the question for Allison, until an unexpected encounter changes her life forever. Will Allison allow God to direct her path, or will she get in her own way before true love finds her?

Uplevel Your Life
By Toni Moore Esq
There is something deep within the belly of your soul that you’re responsible for manifesting on this side of heaven. Whether you call it your brilliance, id, purpose, or gift, you’re responsible for using what you have to manifest pieces of Heaven on earth. Whether you grew up from a wealthy family or in poverty, God planned and purposed for you to manifest greater things. Now the question is, will you allow more to come through you than what was given to you?
From bruised and broken pieces to blessed and bankable, Women’s Empowerment Speaker, Toni Moore, shares her unapologetic guide to pushing through the shadows of hurt, shame, and poverty to manifest her version of ‘happily ever after.’ True to her brand of being real, raw, and relatable, Toni shares a story of how someone who comes from nothing can unapologetically manifest greater no matter what.
If you’re ready to break free of the status quo, make change possible, and manifest greater on this side of Heaven, then now is the time to Uplevel.

Throughout our lives, we face challenges that present us with choices to either battle against change or push us to the next level in our growth. The tests that come with these challenges can be ugly, dark, and heartbreaking. These growing pains make it difficult to recognize the beauty surrounding and hidden within the imperfections. It’s even harder while we’re in the darkness, to have a positive mindset and trust we are being guided towards our light.

Imperfect Self-Love is a collection of poems, quotes, and affirmations to ignite self-love, healing, spirituality, and self-discovery towards overcoming brokenness.
