Allyn Evans' "Grab the Queen Power" is full of anecdotes that entertain and wisdom that will make a difference in the lives of women.

Allyn Evans, Professional Speaker and Author

It can be a lonely journey for a woman who feels something is missing in her life, especially if that something is her identity. Perhaps she harbors a desire to discover her authentic self, if she thinks she has one. This search can generate a painful and isolated experience, but it needn’t be that way. 


Allyn Evans has written the companion traveler for women on this path. In her book, Grab the Queen Power, Live Your Best Life! she reveals inspiring accounts from her own life, as she maps out a cultural trail from girlhood to adulthood. Along the way, she unveils reasons that many girls and women have learned to subjugate their personal power to the needs of others. Interviews with other women are interspersed throughout and underscore her stories. Spell binding and highly personal, the stories captivate, as they may easily belong to me or you, or one our sisters or best friends.


Through the stories, we learn that our confidence and high self-esteem, those gifts from girlhood, may erode from an onslaught of cultural messages that instruct girls and women about our role in society. By the time we reach our teen years, our dreams may merely echo the vitality we once enjoyed. Evans takes the reader from there to her college experience, and then on to marriage and later years, navigating the testy waters with an uncommon blend of honesty, sensitivity and caring.


After exposing the conditions, Evans offers an alternative awareness. She dedicates the final third of the book to a new way of thinking. She outlines the attributes of, in her words, an “Authentic Queen,” and paints a vivid image of a woman who understands and accepts herself fully, who loves herself enough to give to others, who is truthful as well as merciful. It’s a heart-warming list, and leads seamlessly into the final section, where readers learn the steps toward actualizing their true selves. My favorite among the nine steps: Declare your intent. Be prepared to listen and act on inner promptings. Taken together, these nine steps create a rich menu that I know I will want to visit repeatedly. A highly recommended read.

"Grab the Queen Power." I am saying it constanttly, reminding myself and others to remember where the power resides, so you, and I, can live our best life. Truth be told, there's really nothing to grab. It's more like "grow your Queen Power." Once you start living more queenly (basically that means autentically), your power will slowly emerge and fill you with light. One day you will awake and find yourself bathed in the glow of personal power. In that moment you will know that you are on your way. You will know from heart to mind that you are where you are supposed to be and doing what you were placed on this earth to do. It's that simple. Of course, that doesn't mean it's easy.

Reviewed by Angela Watkins 12/19/2007
Great. "Authentic Queen,” and paints a vivid image of a woman who understands and accepts herself fully, who loves herself enough to give to others, who is truthful as well as merciful.

I love this article.

Reviewed by Reginald Johnson 12/17/2007
While "Grab the Queen Power: Live Your Best Life!" has been written to inspire women ... men can also benefit from its timely and salient advice. I enjoyed it and can appreciate, even more ... the beauty, mystique, and complexity of the female psyche.
