Hey guys!


 


I know I haven’t updated this site in a while but I’m here!! What’s up? LOL.


 


No, I’m kidding. However, I did want to stop through and let you know a few things.


 



I’ve started a reading group on Facebook. It’s called Twins Write 2. It’s a group where I share short stories, giveaways and it’s open for you, as members, to join in. If you are not a part of it, JOIN US! Click HERE. You’ll love it.
The Family that Lies has now reached 100+ reviews on Amazon! Can you believe it? Me either but I am so excited. YOU GUYS ROCK! If you haven’t had a chance to download the book, it is still on sale for $0.99. Click HERE to get your copy.
Hmm, what else. I am working on releasing a new book as well as some short story episodes. Be on the lookout for the upcoming pre-order link (as soon as I can get the book to the editor.)
Join me on social media. I’d love to hear from you.
Did I say that you guys rock? Well, you do. Thank you for supporting LAKISHA, the author. It means more than words can say.

 


Love you guys and happy reading!

Order Here and place “For Michaiah Fields” in the notes


  [image error]My name is Michaiah Fields and in September 2017 I will be leaving Memphis, Tennessee to study abroad with AFS Intercultural Programs for one year in Italy. Studying abroad is a great way to show younger generations that there is more to the world than just where you are from. I hope my year in Italy inspires them to broaden their horizons and explore outsid e of their comfort zone. I believe I will gain a once in a lifetime experience by going to Italy. 


 


 The cost to spend a year in Italy is very expensive and I am working and coming up with different ideas to get the amount everyday. One of those options is Goodness Gracious Cookies (www.cookiesformissions.com)!  I have been given the opportunity to partner with them as a fundraiser. (The link to Michaiah’s profile on their website is in my bio). You can order online or from me personally.  


 


I have also joined the Sponsor an AFSer program. The Sponsor an AFSer is an online fundraising tool provided by AFS-USA to allow potential contributors rgrate easy, secure, and non tax-deductible contributions to my AFS program fee.  To sponsor my AFS program, visit my blog at michaiahs.blogspot.com and click the Donate Now button to make a non tax-deductible contribution directly to my AFS program account!  


 


Thank you for your prayers, support, orders and donations!


 


  Will you help myself and Goodness Gracious Cookies send this beauty to Italy to study!!  It’s reallllyyyyyy simple, all you have to do is order some cookies!  Not just any cookies but some that are soft, chewy, delicious and baked fresh daily. These cookies can be delivered (if you’re in the Memphis area) and/or shipped right to your door. And if you place the order in enough time, you may just get yours the same day! Just mention Michaiah Fields so she’ll get credit. If placing an order online is too much for you, no worries because we will come to you! We’ll setup at your event,  we’ll send you a sponsorship packet,  we’ll speak during church announcement period or whatever it takes to get your help and support!  The link to view her profile is below and if you would like to get orders from your church, family, friends or coworkers; the order form is attached. Send it, along with payment, to me and I’ll get your orders placed. Please call/text or email, if you need too!

Listen … I made a post on Facebook a few days ago that said, God still has time to blow your mind in 2016.




Well, let me testify. On yesterday I was checking my email and there was an email with the subject “Kisha’s Daily Devotional Blog in Feedspot Top 30 Devotional Blogs.” I clicked on it and I was indeed among the list as being one of the top 30 devotional blogs on the internet. Wow!! 




My blog, https://kishasdailydevotional.com/ has been selected as one of the top 30 Devotional Blogs on the Internet!




Y’all! #nowords I told you God still has time to blow your mind in 2016! WOW!! Check it out. I got a cool badge and everything. And I must say, I am among some awesome blogs! You’ve got to check it out for yourself. Visit them at blog.feedspot.com and see the list. It’s going to blow your mind as well. 




I’m sharing this because somebody is doubting that God can do it. If you need another testimony, I got a text from my best friend, on last night, who said she got a call yesterday for another job that starts on 1/16/17.   


Baby, you can’t tell me what God can’t do. All you have to do is believe.





Thank you God and thank each of you who follow my devotionals. Please don’t stop. Share it with somebody and check out feedspot and show them some love.




God is amazing and He still has time to blow your mind. Do you believe?

The Family that Lies


Born only months apart, Merci and Grayce Alexander were as close as sisters could get. With a father who thought the world of them, life was good. Until one day everything changed.


While Grayce got love and attention, Merci got all the hell, forcing her to leave home. She never looks back, putting the past behind her until … her sister shows up over a decade later begging for help, bringing all of the forgotten past with her. Merci wasn’t the least bit prepared for what was about to happen next.


Merci realizes, she’s been a part of something much bigger than she’d ever imagined. Yea, every family has their secrets, hidden truths and ties but Merci had no idea she’d been born into the family that lies.


Available now on Amazon!
