What readers are saying!
Alicia, you have crossed over to the world of "authors." As I began to read your book, I could not help but to have my educator's/writer's hat on; this hat had to come off to allow myself to enjoy your journal. And, I did just that! It was as you specifically described..."your journal" --- but out-loud! You are speaking 'out-loud' to your readers in a concise language for us to comprehend in no uncertain terms in order for us not to only hear you but to absorb your message and to help us to find that inner strength to also step out on faith to find ourselves. When an author can make the reader feel, think and want to do --- than you've done something really good. I've highlighted many lines throughout the book that I thought was profound. Profound because it personally was a message to me, messages for me to pass along to my twins [yes at their age of 41, parenthood never ends] and messages that I can pass along to others as a guiding light. For instance, "GOD never intended for us to be busy, His intentions for us are to be fruitful." BOOM ! I was told something very similar to this by my Boss [he was also a pastor] a few years ago when I was running like a chicken with it's head cut off. And, chapter 6 --- totally spoke to me because of the anguish of what I endured during my 2nd marriage.
So with this said, your creation isn't only a production related to employment/unemployment/layoff, your creation is applicable to life's trials & tribulations too. It inspires PERIOD; your quotes/your references/your conveying of the scriptures are clear indications of the refined efforts you put forth in making this a quality piece of how you learned to value yourself; setting forth aspirations of what else shall follow and setting the bar for your family. Aspirations in terms of how high you go will determine how high you aim. And, your aim is high.

I'm excited and can't wait to read the entire book. Such a good tool to have when you are dealt the hand of being laid off. When I went through my own personal layoff; I felt lost as well and didn't know how to recover! Truly an inspiration!
