Smith will have a book signing at the Brewton Public Library on Sat., Dec. 10 at 11 a.m. She will also give her own testimonial that inspired the book.

“This book is all about staying in the fight, forgiving oneself and others, loving oneself and trusting God through it all,” Smith said.

Within the 64-page book, the author shares her own personal life experiences to encourage readers to know they are not alone, that God is always with them.

“I want readers to gain confidence, power, motivation and healing,” Smith said. “I desire for them to know and understand that in spite of everything we go through, God is still able to deliver us and set us free. He’s able to give us our smile that was taken away, and he’s able to fill happiness where hurt once was. God is there with us and he desires to be our presence if only we allow him in.”

Its real life experience Smith credits as her motive of writing the book, and hopes it can be a motivator for others going through tough times.

“This book was written to heal, inspire and encourage a generation of believers and nonbelievers,” Smith said. “I want readers to reach unspeakable joy knowing their self worth.”

Books will be available to purchase at the signing for $10. There will also be a question and answer session. The book is currently available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com.
