Dr. Beverly Crockett
The reader is granted admission into the main event and given a front-row-center seat. This book is filled with life lessons and a message that speaks to the soul. The story shared is about deliverance, integrity, and calling on God for help in finally being free from some of the mistruths, misinformation, and misunderstandings of life.
In “Tell the Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing But the Truth,” Dr. Crockett addresses the deception that many leaders, especially those in the religious sects, are walking in, day in and day out. Not speaking of exposing to embarrass… she would never do that. But speaking of bringing facts to the forefront to bring healing and deliverance where it’s needed.
Know that this book is not written from a ‘point the finger at your wrong’ standpoint, but from a place of love and self-discovery. Love in her love for people and seeing them healed and walking in liberty. Self-discovery in that Dr. Crockett first looked at her own life and realized that healing was needed there, too.
Sometimes as parents and leaders, we get so caught up in the day-to-day activities that we do to carry out our “jobs,” we don’t see some of the places that are broken in our own lives. We often miss those spots where we need to take a closer look at ourselves. We wear masks, phony smiles and attempt to portray that “all is good” when in reality… we’re dying on the inside and don’t know how to fix what’s wrong. And worse… sometimes we don’t even know what’s “really” wrong until a truth is exposed.
It’s important that you know YOUR truth and YOUR reality. Understand that God’s love for you is deeper than you could ever fathom, and He wants healing and deliverance for you more than you want it for yourself.
So, as you’re reading this, if it finds you, please don’t run from this book. Grab it, and grab it quickly. Not just for yourself, but for those that you are leading. This book will not leave you feeling guilty or condemned
This book is dedicated to all of those who couldn’t wait to be out on their own, only to find out later that the adult life that was as desired as a child wasn’t all it appeared to be from the outside looking in.
I’m even speaking to those of you who, like myself, grew up in church, and because it was literally forced up-on you to go by your parents or grandparents, couldn’t wait to get old enough to make your own decision not to go; and that’s exactly what you did: made your exit from the church and all of its tight, restricting, no real fun, gloomy rules. Can you remember how empowered you felt when you reached that point? If that wasn’t your story, it’s okay, there are plenty of us who felt that way and perhaps just weren’t truthful enough to speak the truth. We certainly didn’t do it then, and some wouldn’t dare utter that truth even now.
My prayer is that every leader, company president, CEO, parent, teacher, and child will glean something from the written words contained in this book, and allow the true characteristics of truth, honesty, and integrity to reign in your respective places of authority. Too often, we put on a sobering façade of everything being alright, portraying that nothing is wrong, or we live the adage, “I’m too blessed to be stressed,” when deep inside, we are hiding fear, hurt, disappointment, betrayal, grief, anger, and bitterness behind our titles and all the glory they supposedly bring. Believe it or not, all of those adverse, power packed emotions have to be released. Perhaps those emotions are even “leaking” out in places and on people that you aren’t even aware of, (i.e., your employees, spouse, children, congregants, students, etc.).
Don’t misunderstand, when you are leading and people are following, yes you want to put your game face on and respond in a positive manner. However, sometimes that sends a message to the person who is looking to you for answers and for help that something is wrong with them because they have an issue. Sometimes you may have falsely portrayed that you haven’t had trying, embarrassing, or humiliating situations in your life.
Today, people are looking for answers that will al-low them to face truth and be delivered from whatever situation binds them. You may be the person to help them get to where they need to be, but because you are not allowing your truth to come forward, you are not helping and you may even be hindering their release.
Much of what is written in these pages is my own uncovering, if you will. In order for me to go forward in this life and all that is destined for me to experience, I have to write these words, if for no other reason than to expose my truths. It has caused a release to come forth in my very soul and spirit, and I intend to live the rest of my days free! Free in my mind, free in my spirit, and certainly free in my soul (emotions)!
Nothing written is intended to hurt, harm, or damage anyone. For the most part, if you are inquisitive enough to discern whom I’m talking about, you’ll either have to use your imagination, ask God, or insert your own mental characters into the pictures that are painted in the words on these pages.
If truth be told, and I hope it is, you will find your-self, or someone you know within my life story. It won’t necessarily be me you’re looking at, but sometimes, your own image will be what you see in the mirror in your mind. Truly, the magnifying glass will appear.
My desire is that somehow, we can all come into the knowledge of truth. I know now more than ever that God desires truth in our inward parts, (i.e., our heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit). When that takes place, then we are whole, then we can assist others and usher them into the most beautiful way of living, which is by the roadmap that was designed for us by our Creator. Then and only then are we able to receive the fullness of the blessings of God as He has intended for our lives
A man of God once spoke into my life these words in reference to Kingdom Mentality: “You must release what you are holding onto in order to receive what I have for you!” In other words, exchange your current or carnal mentality for Kingdom Mentality! It will allow you to excel in Kingdom Works and to walk in Kingdom Authority!
My hope is that we will come clean and tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! God help us!
Anonymous-Tell The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth: The Power and Perils of Adulthood
I loved this book because Dr. Crockett has a way with words. She has a way of sharing God's excellent plans for our lives through her own unique experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. We have all had a time or two when we wanted out of our parents' homes just to discover that life isn't all that its cracked up to be. There will definitely be bumps in the road and the reader is allowed the awesome privilege of going through them with Dr. Crockett. Please be encouraged to tell the truth and read this excellent book about becoming an adult.

Dr. B. does an excellent job of documenting critical events that are all life changing. We have all been down the roads that she shares with us. I was taken “Back Down Memory Lane,” repeatedly.
This book had me emotionally; running the range, from tears, to deep chuckles, and at other times, my jaw was dropped in awe. I would encourage everyone to make the investment in your life by obtaining this book, as it validates that we are all really more alike than we are different.
It is definitely worth your time to read Dr. Crockett’s journey through, “Tell the Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But the Truth: The Power and Perils of Adulthood,” on her road to adulthood, freedom, and deliverance!
