Special Housing Unit
From Mediocre to Marvelous
Get Out of Your Rut and Live A Fulfilled Life

 

This book captures the personal journey of the author who overcame a dysfunctional beginning in life to become an outstanding leader in her place of employment and community. She was very fortunate in that she was able to be solo at critical times. The author learned early on how to assess a situation and make the best decision concerning her life. The author shares that there were others who aided in her success, but wants each reader to know that successful people cannot be afraid to step out on faith and sometimes alone. The author shares that there were times when she was the "underdog" but she never allowed the situation to overtake her. She gives the reader sound wisdom on making situations work for you even in difficult places, having worked in a male-dominated system for 30+ years. The author also gives sound wisdom on raising African American children to be successful adults. Her self-exposure and faith in God has truly taken her life from Mediocre to Marvelous.

Some Will Be King Makers
 
This book captures the soul of a single African American mother while raising two successful sons. African American males are becoming an endangered species. They have different needs from other males in society. Why because they are not given the same regard in American society. It is a constant battle to be treated with the same respect and dignity as other males. They need stability, support, exposure, male role models, spirituality, mentoring and love. Not only do African American males need all of these elements, if you are a single mother, you have the same needs. This book reveals to single mothers the importance of building a life for themselves in order to build a life for their sons.  
Raising sons is not an easy task. However if done right it can be so rewarding. This is a call to action to single moms. The charge is what do you want to release unto society? “Killers or Kings” If you are vigilant, you too will become a King Maker.
