About the Book
Even the strongest women need a village to support them.
As women, not only have we mastered the art of emotionally, physically and spiritually saving everyone except ourselves, unfortunately, we have perfected the art of doing it alone.
In Heels on Gravel, author Tamee Gordon unpacks the often overlooked principles of women understanding who we are beyond the many labels we’ve attained throughout our years (wife, mother, employee, servant), to realize that empty cups others pour out on our behalf do not equate success – our healthy bodies, spirits and minds do! Creatively blending wisdom, charm and wit to introduce biblical context in this practical devotional with a realistic approach, Tamee shares personal anecdotes that will not only make you laugh, they’ll encourage you to maintain your Christian walk, while journaling your thoughts along the way.
No longer must women bear the burden of saving the world alone! We don’t have to do it by ourselves, and we can get the job done with our heels on. If you’re ready to show the gravel who’s boss, grab your heels and let’s start walking!

Leave a Trail of Glitter
Historically for centuries, women and especially enterprising women in business and entrepreneurship have not been seen. Women have been excluded from leadership roles especially in business, commerce and entrepreneurship. Women have had to dull their shine so others would feel good about themselves. Women have been made to feel less worthy, so someone else (usually male counterparts) could feel worthy. Women have been held back because of the fear they would outshine others. In business and in corporate America, so often our gender and the color of our skin (for Black and brown women) has been a source of contention and a stumbling block. Today, women are the fastest growing demographic of new businesses, yet we have so far to go. Women are embarking on entrepreneurship in record numbers because we are tired of being told what we can and cannot accomplish, what to do; how to do it and when. We are tired of working 10 times harder for a fraction of the pay. We are tired of being tired and feeling unworthy.
The purpose of this book is threefold. Firstly, it is to acknowledge God as our guide and the creator, founder and CEO of any business or entrepreneurial journey we embark on. He is the creator of the business plan and the standard operating procedures. He is the one that gives us purpose. He sends us the resources and he illuminate our path. Secondly, it is to shout from the rooftops that the tide is turning. No longer will we feel inadequate, that we are not enough or that we don’t deserve everything we have worked to achieve. No longer will we allow our past mistakes to dictate our future successes. Not only have we earned it, but we deserve it and we down right DEMAND the respect and honor we are due! Thirdly, we hope to leave our trail of sparkle and shine in an illuminated path of glitter for the next generation of women in business to follow as they spring forth, create and blaze their own trails. If there is one thing, we hope you take away from this compilation it is, wherever you go, whatever you do…leave a trail of glitter for those who will come behind you! We were all born with a little glitter inside of us. Some of us just haven’t begun to sprinkle it yet.
