Wednesday’s “Motown Book Candy” Feature

This wednesday’s “Motown Book Candy” feature is with Jaylen LaGrande. Check out Jaylen on today’s Motown Literary Network Blogtalk Radio as he talks about his new book Identity Crisis.

Identity Crisis: The Final Verdict
Imagine the horror of suddenly realizing that you are the victim
of an unspeakable crime. As the modus operandi of the criminal activity is unraveled, you struggle to maintain your breathing. One devastating fact leads to another. Tears run like a raging river as each piece of evidence is sprawled out before you. Your skin is covered in a cold sweat and your heart drums fiercely. It is a most invasive kind of crime because personal information you held dear has been used to steal your very existence. Law enforcement officials have labeled this crime – identity theft. Author Jaylen LaGrande has taken the legal description of this invasive criminal act and wonderfully drawn a colorful analogy to its prevalence in the Kingdom, and how it affects who we are as Christians and spiritual beings. Even more shocking than his keen and in-depth study of the demonic attack against the identities of the sons and daughters of God; is a startling revelation. That revelation – the enemy has not stolen the identities of God’s children. Identity Crisis: The Final Verdict presents a compelling case for the prosecution that proves many of us have unwittingly embraced the very disruptive identities that the enemy has sown into our lives through thoughts, generational behaviors, friends, family, errant beliefs and low self-esteem. Thus, as we rise and the morning sun illuminates our image in the mirror – we see self; yet hauntingly self bears the identical appearances of fear, anger, manipulation, doubt and so many other absolutely damaging identities. Do not fear! LaGrande gives you access herein to a weapon that will, without fail, kill every trick of the enemy that has and will come. Each of us who has struggled with feeling the blow of demonic strategies against our purpose and destiny should bathe in the power of LaGrande’s work.
