TO LEARN ABOUT JUANITA, HER WORK, AND HER FOCUS, YOU ARE INVITED TO GO TO globaltalkradio.com on "A STORY TO TELL" AND LISTEN TO AN INTERVIEW BY KEVIN DAWSON WITH JUANITA PITTMAN-BROWN...
The uniqueness of Juanita Pittman-Brown's gift is that she has the ability to write poetry when she interacts with others and is gifted to be able to pen the connection through words. She has come to realize that over 48 years that this is where much of her poetry has been born. She realizes that the world is only a place, but the spirit is forever.
"WORDS IN BLOOM", her first book of inspirational poetry, is available for purchase on iuniverse.com. (See Favorite Links -- below), barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com, bamm.com, and borders.com.
You may order her book by calling 1-800-AUTHORS. Her book is also available through book stores print-on-demand. She has a new book which will be available in the near future through the same avenues. Recently, she has co-authored with acclaimed southern artist Jeffrey Callaham from McCormick, S.C. The title of the book is "What A Mother Says", and it features quotes by Juanita and the art of Jeffrey. Further details will be available on her site in the upcoming months. To learn more about Jeffrey and his work, please view his site at www.jefferycallaham.com
The book distributors of "Words in Bloom" and Juanita's "What A Mother Says" which will be out in the upcoming months are INGRAM (Tennessee Division ), as well as, BAKER AND TAYLOR.
Juanita would describe her life's journey in her quote, "Victory is God's reward for faith under fire". If she could say one thing about her life, this is what she would say, "I do feel victorious in Christ, and the focus of my wiritings always are God the Father, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit". Beyond living her life as if she were to be used by God for a Holy purpose, she truly does not feel that she has a focus; therefore, to be used by God as an instrument and vessel is her daily purpose and aim.
She does feel purposed and inspired to write and to share what is in her heart. It is in the sharing of what pours from her heart she finds the greatest fulfillment and joy.
Her goal is to share the gift God has given her with the world at large; and in that way, she is purposed to write and to share and to continue to pour her heart into word in order that she may share HIS lovely fragrance with the world.
"Words in Bloom", which is a work that involves her writings from 1959 until the present, was published in late 2005 and is now available to the public. This book is merely a grain of sand in comparison to the ocean of writings that she has been blessed to put onto paper.
In the upcoming months, her second book, "What A Mother Says", will be available. It is a book of inspirational quotes which she has accumulated over many years. Details will be posted on her site in the near future.
