My book Get Thee Behind Me is a non-fiction book in the making.  It details the cycles of abusive relationships, infidelity, and separation of family.  In a world so divided…so are families.  Witnessing my mom being beat in the head with a brick…she survived, forcefully thrown on the floor and breaking her leg as she lie on my bedroom floor in agony…she survived, going to jail for a crime she didn’t commit, but my brother did in order to save her life…she survived.  All my sisters have been in similar situations…they survived.  These and more stories will come to life in my book.

This is why the book I am currently writing is important to me.  It is near and dear to my heart and those that have been through or are going through the same cycles of abuse.  It has to stop and it starts with you.  Be a survivor and know when to get out of an abusive relationship.  There is no shame, but if you stay in the relationship, you only have yourself to blame.

The Road Less Traveled

January 11, 2015

As a little girl, I have always had ‘something’ in my shadows.  Whenever I would go to sleep, it would wake me up.  Whenever I was awake, it would invade my thoughts.  Now that I am a grown woman with a husband and kids of my own, ‘something’ is still in my shadows.

I was always living in someone else’s shadows; eager to please, pretending to be something I’m not or afraid to be who God created me to be.  I realize I have missed out on a lot because I was always afraid to take that leap….afraid of the unknown.

It’s one thing giving advice, but it’s a whole other thing taking it.  So, here it goes.  I started on my second book, Get Thee Behind Me. I will be traveling down a road I have never traveled down before…Non-Fiction…based on actual facts. Once it’s all said and done, you will cry with me, laugh with me, rejoice with me, and be blessed with me.  It’s time to get out of everyone else’s shadow and do my darn thang!

I will keep you posted of a publication date….keep me in your prayers.

This Concludes Mimi Jenkins’ Moment of Truth!
