Pivotal moments in life where we must choose. In life, win or lose?
In life, I either win or lose. For me, that's choosing life with God or without. Period. The choice is mine. It's up to me. I've decided I will no longer play small. I will be courageous in my living, generous in my giving and impactful in my serving. Everything I do, I will do in excellence. I will not wait for time, I will make it. It's time for me to stand on God's words and His promises with renewed vigor. It's time to accept the victory that has already been won. It's time to be bold, brave and brilliant for God's glory. It's time to be unapologetic about my existence. It's time to unleash my gifts to positively impact the world. It's time I embrace the truth: what God says about me and the favor over my life. In life, I choose to WIN! Here's how the journey began! Flip through my life.
Time to be true. Time to be who God called me to be.
Time to be uncomfortable. Time to share all of me.
It's a completely different style of book. Stories are shared in visual spreads.

Excerpt . . .
Maybe I am here for such a time as this. Maybe it's time to actually share my voice, my story, my journey and my struggles. Maybe
it's that unique style of mine that is effective at reaching someone in a spirit of understanding. Maybe I am just full of myself
and sharing all of me because I have the audacity
to do so. Maybe it's my birthday and I will do as I
please. Maybe when God placed this desire in my
heart to share my struggles, battles, obstacles and
stories of overcoming, it was for someone else's
breakthrough. Maybe it's for mine.
Just maybe. So, here goes.
Every choice has a guaranteed consequence. Choose wisely.
Storytelling done differently! Butler incorporates original poems, images and reflections throughout.
