Ayanna Kofi is an African American mother of two sons and four grandchildren. She is an ordinary person who was raised in the ‘ghetto’, encountered racism and is learning her spiritual and natural heritage. Early childhood questions and experiences impressed upon her a desire to seek a relationship with God. Her spiritual journey has led her through paths of external search of purpose, only to discover purpose was within herself and had been placed there by God.
Acceptance of Jesus as her Lord and Savior gave rise to another level of awareness: God is love and He loves us. God serves us every moment of our life and communicates. We are His children and He desires for us to know, understand and live life from His perspective. She heard His voice, learned to listen and followed His revelations by faith, which lead to writing this book. This book contains biblical content and life experiences expressed in a plethora of inspirational literary works: skits, short stories, cartoons, poetry, study guides and so on. It’s an invitation to live rather than exist. Ms. Kofi is discovering there is greater joy in designing one’s life than settling for ‘come what may’.
