Multiple Streams of Success
A collaborative anthology from people who dared to be vulnerable. Their stories are similar to the lives of other Americans in our society today. Someone in your family, school, maybe a friend, co-worker, church member will be able to identify with one or more of the stories in Multiple Streams of Success. Imagine being born to a crack addicted mother, in a dirty cold ceramic bath tub, in an abandoned house, weighing little more than 12 oz., or looking down the barrel of a gun to hear the hammer drop and still be able to stand or being hooked on pornography and cocaine to the point destroying everything and everyone within your sphere of influence. Each author brings a compelling story from different walks of life. Men and women who have triumphed over various adversities and now help change the lives of those in the space they occupy.
"Imagine being born prematurely, addicted to crack cocaine and not expected to live. Nakita Taylor's journey into this world began in a cold, hard, filthy, bathtub in an old dilapidated house. It is unimaginable the trauma her tiny infant body experienced as it faced a cruel and hostile world."
"A Tiny Miracle"
"My conversation with God started one day while I was laying on the radiation table, in the same position I imagined my mother had laid. I was wondering if I was going to die, too. I asked God, quietly that day what plans he had for me. "God, I know you did not bring me through all of this in my life to let me die now. I also know that you always use people and situations for good."
"Conversations With God"
"Someone offered to introduce me to crack. Who me? No, that was a Drug...and a hands off one at that. I refused several times over a three-month period. However, curiosity and hunger for some new thrill, gnawed at my brain. Knowing I could never be hooked, and wanting to experiment further with drugs, I finally tried crack.
Promptly, my system rejected it, and I threw up. I continued experimenting, playing, until my system finally broke and hungrily grabbed onto the crack abuse. In no time at all, I was hooked. Practice makes perfect...."
"I Am Still Rising"
"Years ago, I heard a sermon on tangible faith, the Word says: "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen."
Therefore, could something we hope for be tangible at the same time? I have learned that the Lord engages us where we are in life. He establishes the path of transformation, and He can and will do the seemingly impossible to get our attention. We have heard stories from our elders and others about how God is an "on time God." Little did I know how "on time" He could and would be"
