A Letter to My Sisters: Reflecting on God’s Promises is a unique work designed to empower women through story, spirituality, and reflection. Dr. Veronica L. Hardy creatively highlights challenges experienced by women including intimate partner violence, sexual abuse, relationship conflicts, and self-image.
The use of a key story from the New King James Version of the Bible is the basis of the book. Tamar, the daughter of King David, experienced a form of sexual assault - rape, which impacted her identity. She carried the weight of this act on her shoulders but was able to confide in someone close to her. Through A Letter to My Sisters: Reflecting on God’s Promises, you will find inspiration and power in Tamar’s story. It is time to embrace the power in yours.
A Letter to My Sisters: Reflecting on God's Promises is a 2019 publication of WestBow Press, A Division of Thomas Nelson & Zondervan.
"Each day I wake up,
my goal is to be happy."

My Recent Articles
Since childhood, I remember curling up on the couch and reading a new book each week with excitement. Then, during my teenage years, I began to capture my thoughts and observations through poetry and journal writing. This laid a foundation for me as an adult to see life as art and support others in living it well. I’ve always been passionate about storytelling and impressed by the influence it has on people and the decisions they make in life. I enjoy engaging with written projects that take me on a spiritual, self-reflective journey and my hope is that the words tap into the souls of the readers. Take a look at my most recent articles featured in the Robeson Living Magazine.
This book is powerful and uplifting. It provides words of encouragement and inspiration to anyone who may be experiencing self-esteem issues. We all have our problems and the one thing I am a firm believer of is knowing God would put no more on us than we can handle. Confirmation is given in this book. Thank you for the kind and positive uplifting words that you have shared with your readers.
Words of encouragement and inspiration to any and all who have lived and are still living with a self-image of 'less than' or 'not good enough'...
