Book Signing with Ebony Whitlock

Ebony Whitlock will be here signing copies of her book My Wounds Are My Wisdom from 2:00-4:00 pm. Stop by anytime to meet the author and purchase a signed copy of her book.
Here’s the summary of the book:
Have you ever felt like you didn’t have a lot to say, but you felt you needed to get your story out? Have you wondered why you have been through somethings in life that seem like it should have taken you out-but for some reason you are still standing as if you haven’t been through anything? I can say that this is how I have felt for a long time; about the many different turns that life had brought about. Well if you are a person who has felt this way, let me tell you this, you have a voice and you have made it through your past for a reason. It is time to let your little light shine and tell the world how you made it over. Never in a million years did I think a book would come out of the pain, trials, and issues that we have dealt with in life. So, if you have been through any loss or traumatic experiences in life and you feel like or have felt like you could not bounce back from it, this book will speak volumes to you. This book is about lives that were created in greatness, lived in greatness and how we stood the test of times. Although this book is about our lives and the turns it took-it will for sure reach into so many different areas in your life as well. Come with us and see how life took a traumatic turn; but how God made a way and made all things work out for our good. Even though some may not understand, I have come to realize that this book is not for everyone. So, we pray that you will receive a blessing by going behind the scenes of this thing we call life. I promise it will bless you!
