Fort Valley State Graduate Jasmine Womack Writes Inspirational Book ‘Twenty Pearls of Wisdom’
Twenty Pearls of Wisdom: A Woman’s Guide to Self Preservation
In Womack’s Twenty Pearls of Wisdom, she shares twenty vital principles that will help individuals break the cycle of self-sabotage and create a life that they love. They will discover how to transform their lives, develop into a Pearl, and become a refined woman who realizes her worth and allows her beauty to shine from the inside out.
“At one time I was the “Self-Sabotage Queen”; living recklessly, making stupid decisions, and being involved in counterproductive relationships,” said Womack. ” With my college degree, luxury sports car and a fabulous life, I looked like I had it all together.” In reality, I was secretly sad, lonely, and wanted more out of my life. ”
Following her college undergraduate years, Womack experienced various hardships in the areas of love, finances, and spirituality. These experiences, along with fear of her calling, led her to question the existence of God and live recklessly, which drove her into deeper despair. Unhappy and unable to run any longer, her faith was reignited and she began to reconstruct her identity of herself, then began to pursue her purpose and passion for helping young girls and women.
The author says you may be facing the same realities that forced her to change her thoughts, her ways, and her destructive behavior, but you don’t have to. You can start your road to happiness now, but first you have to start loving yourself, which for some is the hard part, because they don’t know how. This book will give you tips and that extra push to help you realize your full potential.
“20 Pearls of Wisdom is a must read for a young woman seeking guidance and a positive change in their lives,” said Carmen Cheely, educator and recent reader of the book. ” In 20 Pearls, Jasmine uses each Pearl as a growing and learning experience to tell a story that you can definitely relate to and learn from. This book truly inspires you to become a better person and take the necessary steps to becoming your own woman.”
“Twenty Pearls of Wisdom: A Woman’s Guide to Self- Preservation” is Womack’s first book that was released in August 2016. Writing a book that inspired people has been a long-time dream of Womack’s. She began writing in only the 5th grade, and later discovered her passion for the craft during her sopohomore year at Redan High School with a poetic performance during a school play.
