Wife, Mom, Author & Entrepreneur. Navigating my imperfect life while serving a perfect God

Behind The Key

Freedom. Access. Liberation. Knowledge. Success……Love. These are some of the symbolism of the KEY. It’s main use is to open or lock wherever room it is designed for.

Like me I’m sure you’ve heard the romantic term “key to my heart.” It’s a metaphor for one person trusting the other completely to be able to hand over such a proverbial tiny instrument that gives them full access to the other’s heart. The Bible tells us to guard our hearts. That’s not just empty talk.

Most of us get it right the first time and give the right person the key but we all know that most of the time we never get it right the first couple of times. The problem lies when we’ve been so hurt that we hold on so tight or throw away the key for the next person who might just be the person God has ordained for us.

Behind this hurt lies other things like pride, unforgiveness, pain and bitterness. These things stop us from living and keep us shackled to the past. Such is the case with Itohan Adolo in my upcoming release To Live Again. Shackled by scars of the past, her trust was set up wrong. But what happens when Osaro enters unto the scene? Will his love be able to roar loader than her demons? Or will the shackles of her past keep her bound?

Reviewing The Past & Looking Towards the Future

Truly blessed and humbled to see the end of another year. As always it is a time for reflection on the past and planning toward the future. I’ve been blessed to do some pretty amazing things this year and I also realistically had some losses. This post however is about the wins.

This year I started my podcast, “Anchor Talk”
Wrote & released my first prayer journal, “Light Pearls in the Dark”
Wrote & released my first non fiction book, “In The Dark”
Wrote & released the last book of the Sons of Ishmael series, “Mended With Love”
Wrote & just hit SEND on my 10th book!! Titled: To Live Again.

Thank God for strength esp with a whole full time job and family.
Thanks to my supporters & readers for rocking with me.

For the upcoming year, I have some things I want to do and I will be sharing more of that later. First however I want to share with you something that I have had under wraps for a while. In June , I teamed up with Sable Sisters Publishing under their Sable Romance imprint.
To Live Again, my next book will be under Sable Romance. I’m so excited with this new venture!!

xx

I will be sharing much more about To Live Again in the coming weeks. I will also be modifying the blog a little while restarting the Anchor Talk Podcast. I will write again but it will take a while as I get some other things in order.

From me to you…Happy New Year!

3 Things about Perfection…

We only have 28 days until 2017 is over. But as the popular saying goes “It’s not over until it’s over.”  The year is not over, you still have time to achieve or start to achieve anything you set your mind to.

Most of the time we pause the plan because we haven’t gotten that little piece we think we require to make it perfect. Come close let me whisper something to you. You close enough? Okay check this…perfections isn’t the plan…purpose is!!

Mind blowing huh? I’m just kidding. But you do get my drift, right? Consistent steps make the path, no matter how small they are. As you know time waits for none. That was so true this year because I personally don’t remember what happened to the year. Did you feel it too? I looked up and October was gone.

Out of my mess has come my message. The message of confident expectations in Gods word.
My former need to perfect my plan halted the move toward my purpose. God told Jeremiah, go…I’ll tell you what to say… He went.
Here’s the real deal about trying to be perfect.
1. It’s an unattainable fallacy. The only perfect being is Christ.
2. It blocks transparency. People will only connect to what they can relate to. If you’re trying to present a perfect front you will have zero impact. Real impact.
3. It reflects your lack of faith and confidence in God.
Move in spite of what it looks like. On the other side lies the miracle.

I remember when I wanted to start my podcast this year. It had been two years in the making but I kept putting it off because everything was not perfect. Well, my spirit nagged me until I just did it. It ran from February to May. It wasn’t perfect but it served the purpose at that time based on all the great reviews it got. I had to pause it to accommodate my writing deadlines. But now when I pick it back up next year, I know what I wanna change and make better and I’m not scared anymore.

Today I want to encourage you, the year is not over and 2018 is full of potential.

Peace & Blessings

Those Danjumas…Kammy is Bae

The response to Mended With Love has been nothing short of amazing. I had so much fun penning the novel that I’m glad the readers loved it.

If you haven’t met the Danjumas what are you waiting on. Check through this blog and meet the brothers, Meanwhile let me share a partial review of the final book in the series by Romance in Color

You taught me that a life without love isn_t one worth living. You mended my damaged heart with your love, showing me how not only to receive love but give it. With your help, my life

“I like how Unoma weaves spirituality into her stories without coming off too “preachy.” I understand that Christian Fiction may not be everyone’s preference, but Unoma Nwankwor is such a gifted writer that you will find yourself completely engaged in the story. MENDED WITH LOVE is bound together with romance, love, forgiveness, redemption, Biblical truths, great music and food. I highly recommend this novel. While you are at it, I recommend that you also read the books about the other Danjuma brothers: Rasheed, A SCOOP OF LOVE, and Jabir, ANCHORED BY LOVE. You can thank me later.”~ Romance In Color Review
