She tells you what the plans are, penalties if you don’t participate, how you could qualify for an exemption and more that affect your life and health.

How did you first get interested in writing?

I started writing when I was in Junior High. I wrote my life story as a school project. From there I wrote poetry and created my own special occasion cards for family and friends.

Do you have a favorite author or writers who inspire you? If so, who?

I’m a fan of David Baldacci – Having worked in the legal arena for quite a while, I love stories that have a legal twist to them. I also am a fan of mystery stories.

What can readers expect from you next? Are you currently working on another book?

I am currently not working on another book at this time. I am engrossed in educating people about health care and their options. I actually created an online course that is even more in depth than this book since the law is forever changing.

The Marshawn Evans and Jack Daniels Wedding

coupleI’ve been watching Marshawn Evans as a coach for years (she was a former contestant on The Apprentice) and when she got engaged to Jack Daniels I started following him as well. It was so amazing how their purposes collided. When she started planning her wedding I was so excited for her, even their countdown to the wedding photos were so cute. I didn’t attend but I am familiar with several people who did. I wish them nothing but love, long life and happiness as they go forth in their purpose together. After all that’s what the Love Better Institute is all about.

The Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross Wedding

ashleesimpson_evanross

You’ve got to give it to the paparazzi for getting the photo scoop. Granted the photos are grainy, however, it’s either that or getting no photos at all. It appears that many of the celebs are doing the same thing, leaving no proof that they were married, so it’s really left up to family, friends or anyone who can sneak a photo to capture the moment. It looks like Ashlee and Evan are in great company with Gabrielle and Dwayne and Jenny and Donnie. Congrats all!

The Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg Wedding

jennymccarthyweddingSherrie Shepherd attended Jenny McCarthy’s wedding to Donnie Wahlberg this past Sunday (August 31, 2014). Just like Gabrielle and Dwayne this is the second marriage for Jenny and Donnie as well. The two have been dating a little over a year. “The very first time I saw him, I was in the eighth grade and New Kids on the Block was on MTV,” McCarthy has said of Wahlberg’s boy band days. “I thought Donnie was the hottest one.” Donnie’s brother Mark didn’t make the ceremony, however, he did post a video wishing the couple well. We’re happy for them too. Love is in the air!

The Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade Wedding

The Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade WeddingGabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade tied the knot on August 30, 2014. I remember years ago when the blogs started reporting that Gabrielle was dating Dwayne she denied it and lashed out at bloggers in general, but finally she came out with it. Nevertheless, I love to celebrate marriage and I say congrats to anyone who is willing to say, “I love you enough to marry you!” My thought process is please learn how to make a marriage last. Wishing them the best. this is the second marriage for both of them. Uhh, that’s an adorable 8.5 cushion cut ring too!

What’s Your Story? Questions that Lead to Authentic, Powerful Writing by Rachel Renee Smith

What's Your Story?Title: What’s Your Story? Questions that Lead to Authentic, Powerful Writing
Author: Rachel Renee Smith

Synopsis: Some of the most memorable moments in life are when we obtain the answers to our burning questions. What’s Your Story? is a guide written by editor and writing coach Rachel Renee Smith, packed with questions to keep your creativity flowing and ensure that your writing connects powerfully with your readers.Learn how to capture and organize your ideas, how to create and use an outline, how to use different resources to gain material and supporting data for your project, and the importance of and elements of a great presentation.

As a writing coach, I employ the use of questions all the time to not only help me understand what my writers’ goals are, but also to help the writers clarify their goals, purpose, intentions, and major writing points. As we progress further into the writing process, I put myself in the seat of the reader and ask the questions that I believe they would be asking.As you can imagine, going through this process of question and answer not only yields more detailed and interesting writing, it makes the story or message come alive and sometimes causes the author to deal with thoughts and emotions that they may not have delved into as deeply before. With the intention of writing to help and liberate someone else, the author frees themselves in the process. Addressing your readers’ questions gives you the opportunity to connect with them on a deeply intimate level without ever having a face-to-face conversation. Your reader will feel as if you intimately understand them when they turn the pages of your book and find the answers they have been seeking. Throughout this book, I ask many questions to help you exercise your mind and write in a way that will have a lasting impression on your readers..

How did you first get interested in writing?

I have been a writer since I was a child and while I know it is in my blood, I believe it was also my curiosity that really sparked it. I was that child who was always snooping in their parents’ stuff and I got into my mother’s journals at an early age. (I know, that was terrible. Mothers get no privacy!) My mother is an amazing writer so I got this vivid glimpse into her life beyond just being “Mommy.” I think this is why I have such a love for memoirs to this day – you get a real glimpse into a person’s life and their individual journey but you also inevitably see yourself.

Do you have a favorite author or writers who inspire you? If so, who?

If I have to pick one, I will say Dr. Maya Angelou has always been my favorite. I read all of her memoirs and different things in my own life often spark memories of passages from her books.

What can readers expect from you next? Are you currently working on another book?

Well, I always working on another book because I am always assisting someone in birthing their books into the world! I also have an ongoing project: Bag Ladies:Unpacked, which is a series of stories from real women who have overcome tremendous obstacles in their lives and want to empower someone else with their journey. One day soon I will resume working on my own memoir as well as a book that I am writing with my husband Jeff for singles and newlyweds.

The G’wan by Charon + Jypsea Leather Goods Mashup

gwan_jypsea

This past Saturday I was feeling quite stylish in a FAB romper from G’wan by Charon and a GORGE leather and lace belt from Terina Nicole of Jypsea Leather Goods. I’ve been excited to pair them together for a while now. Their styles mesh so well. I made the announcement online that it was inevitable that their styles would meet. I’m just sayin’.

There Truly Is a Bra For Everything

I received an Aerie gift card as part of my relationship with the Quality Blue Community. All opinions expressed are my own.

Just when you thought that your one “staple” bra could make do and go from dropping off the kids at school, to your 9-5 day at work, to running errands, picking up the kids and figuring out dinner and then occasionally date night and everything else in between, you discover that there is truly a bra for everything! Gone are the days of wearing the same sad bra under every outfit and trying to workout in it too only to find that it’s not giving you the kind of coverage that you need. As summer approached and my wardrobe expanded I found myself in this very dilemma, what do I wear under the cute spaghetti strap sundress or strapless sundresses and Aerie solves that for you. What I love the most is that their selections are old-fashion and stuff, they’re fun, hip and will incorporate easily into the trendy wardrobes that many of us already have.

aerieJust like fashion is ever changing every true fashionista should have a bra to fit every style she loves and Aerie has just what you need to stock your wardrobe with the best bras out there. Just check out their 9 Bras that Every Girls Needs chart above (see the full graphic and read more tips on Aerie’s blog). My absolute favorites from their charts are the full coverage that I normally wear under almost anything (and you’ll probably pick it as a favorite too), the demi, that I mostly reserve for date night with hubby and the “bare” that comes in handy for my evening and summer strapless outfits. This is definitely a style to choose when you still want major coverage. Oh and definitely the “sports” for my morning walks and sometimes runs!

I’d love to know: How many bras do you own? Which of these 9 are your favorites? Which do you really need to purchase but haven’t gotten around to just yet?

Broken For the Promise by Chasity Strawder

Broken for the PromiseTitle: Broken For the Promise
Author: Chasity Strawder

Synopsis: In early 2010 after a heartbreaking miscarriage, I found out I was pregnant once again. My joy was short lived due to a diagnosis of gastro paresis. Soon after the news, this medical dilemma forced my husband Terrence and I into a financial hardship that led to our homelessness. This book is a depiction of my struggles to maintain my faith in God and the fight of survival for my life and that of my unborn baby.

What is the pertinent message that you want to convey to your readers?

God can truly heal any and all brokenness. There is nothing about your life that can’t be restored.

How did you first get interested in writing?

I became interested in writing as early as age 10. It has always been an outlet for me to express my feelings and to do soul searching for what I have desired for my life.

Do you have a favorite author or writers who inspire you? If so, who?

I like reading all of Joyce Meyer’s books. Her books are inspirational, but surround her life experiences. I can identify with a lot of what she has been through.

What can readers expect from you next? Are you currently working on another book?

I am not currently working on another book, but there are plans for others in the near future. I am working on a book tour and some opportunities to share my testimony as a motivational speaker.
