Queen Pin by: Jemeker Thompson-Hairston and David Ritz *Review and Giveaway*

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

    This is a really good book!  It was so amazing to read about this woman's past, and how she truned to God change her future!  I was truely touched by the confidence and strength this woman has.  She's so brave, and to drop all her ways, and accept God was amazing!  Her life was defientley hard, and I praise her just letting God take the lead, and show her the way in life!
    "As I tell you this story.  I'm not the person I was.  The woman I'm about to describe no longer exists.  She is a character from a different time, and a different place.  But there's no way around it: she is me, and the story is mine.
    "I have to own it.  I have to tell it.  I have to relive it in a way that makes sense out of the mess-the violence, mayhem, and tragedy-that beame my life.
    "God has dealt with me in ways I could never have anticipated.  I would not have beome the person I am today without twelve hard years in prison.  And to be honest, part of me doesn't want to look back at the death and destruction caused by my hand as a drug dealer and a known operator whose notoriety and success rivaled the most powerful men.  In being true to God who loved enough to save me from myself, though, I must make this public confession.
    "It is the testimony of who I was and what I did, what happened to me, and who I am today.  Nothing more nothing less."
        ---Jemeker Thompson-Hairston
