About the book  Lessons on Church Folk Volume 1 & 2:
Lessons on Church Folk is a two book series. Volume 1 was written so that people are able to see that every church has issues. Even when you switch churches, you will see some of the same issues that you saw at your previous church. In any event, the church is a hospital where people come to get help for their issues. Only God can free us from the things that constantly stress us out. Life will be stressful but giving your stress over to God will allow you to be free to experience the love and happiness that he desires for all of his children.
Volume 2 was written so that people can see that church members of any faith are the most unique group of people around. These members come to church with various issues and they aim to let go of their issues through prayer within the community of believers. But the question is: Do they hand their issues over to God? or Do they hold on to them so that they can handle them on their own? In life, it is always better to hand over your issues to God because you cannot handle your issues on your own. Overall, we need to accept the fact that we are humans and we all make mistakes. But even when we make mistakes, we have to know that God is always ready and willing to forgive us of our sins.

Guest summary: A survivor. A victor. A living testament of grace. Felecia Berry LMSW shares what she went through to become all three in her poignant memoir The Desires Of Thine Heart.

She has provided trainings in schools, conferences, churches and community mental health agencies.
About the Book, The Desires of Thine Heart:  
In The Desires of Thine Heart ,Felecia is brave in her honesty to share what proves to be the darkest and most painful part of her life. She was exposed to insufferable hardships at a very young age: she lost her father when she was only three years old and, at nine, she lost her innocence forever when she became a victim of sexual abuse by a brother of a classmate. Very soon her life spiraled into a cesspool of drugs, alcohol, abusive relationships and suicide attempts- all desperate but futile efforts to disavow her pain.
