Tell us about your current book.
My current book is called, Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! – Sister Wisdom to Protect Your Heart. Any woman can read this book and glean wisdom from it, but there are specific messages for single women within each chapter. The book can be purchased online at www.stephaniemckenny.com, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and wherever books are sold.
Relationships are what keep us all connected. Every woman wants a man of her own whether she wants to admit to it or not. We all have an innate desire to love and to be loved. However, there are some relationships we should never entertain. Getting entangled in unhealthy relationships can damage a woman emotionally and physically; leaving scars that may last a lifetime, which causes many women to settle for mistreatment in relationships.
This book is filled with woman-to-woman wisdom on bringing awareness of healthy and unhealthy relationships, exposing unhealthy characteristics in men and pointers on helping you women to recognize their value.
How did you come up with ideas for this book?
I was influenced to write the book based on some of my own personal experiences and because I recognized that many women were experiencing different kinds of abuse and mistreatment in relationships. I would often see women in churches who loved God, but were ensnared by the wrong kinds of relationships.
This book was also actually birthed from the scripture, Matthew 7:6. I read that scripture one day and it was as if the text jumped right at me. As a result, it became a teaching at a women session at my church and from there God continued to whisper the words into my spirit, which formed into a book.
After counseling women and doing some interviews with them concerning their relationships, I realized there was a need to write a book that would share the importance of them valuing themselves and exposing unhealthy characteristics in mine.
What do you hope readers will learn/discover from reading Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! : Sister Wisdom to Protect Your Heart?
I hoping that women would begin to love themselves and see themselves the way God sees them so that they won’t settle for mistreatment in their relationships. There is some wisdom shared about relationships, dating, your children and also some signs for women to look for while dating to determine whether they are hooked up with a man with unhealthy characteristics or a good man.
How important are reviews to you as a writer?
Reviews are very important to writers because it gives potential readers the opportunity to get a glimpse of your book. Those reviews could very well create book sales.
