3 months after my book launch and 2 months after a total rebranding, I sat on a panel at the Congressional Black Caucus. The panel consisted of experts in the field of relationships and marriage.
Say what now? The chick who was pregnant at 19 and looking at the military as her only option? The girl who’s baby daddy had another girl pregnant at the same time? Yeah, that girl.
I had the awesome opportunity to work alongside my husband last week. It was definitely a dream come true for the both of us! Granted it was only for 54 minutes, but they are 54 minutes that I will never forget.
I was invited to participate in the Congressional Black Caucus Relationship Panel. I was in shock when I was initially asked to do it. My hubby, on the other hand, was extremely proud of me. He said the hard work I put into my new book, Being a Wife Just Got Real, Things I Wish I knew Before I Said, “I Do” was paying off. He was adamant that it was the direct result of God’s grace on the book. My hubby assured me that God’s desire to see marriages be healthy and whole who be helped with this book.
We met he other couples on the panel and chatted it up. It felt like we knew each other for years. They were especially friendly and we talked with them for several minutes at the end of our segment.
After the panel was over, I had the opportunity to sell my book in the Author Pavilion. I met several other authors who had intriguing books that I will be adding to my home collection of books to read.
I am eternally thankful for this blessed opportunity and the fact that it opened doors for more speaking engagements.

Thank you sis! There were lots of sleepless nights and prayer.
First and foremost, congrats! What a wonderful opportunity. I went to a leadership conference today and the keynote speaker mentioned, “when you are excellent, people stand up and take notice”, so obviously somebody is taking notice of you, ma’am! Your book also sounds captivating and I think it’s amazing you got to work with your husband. Such a blessing indeed.
Thanks for the kind words. This encouraged me this morning.

What an awesome opportunity and platform to share your knowledge and promote your book! I didn’t even know the congressional black caucus did these types of panels. Just curious who attends these types of events?
Hey sis! Thank you! Yes, CBC and NAACP have panels every year. CBC has mainly people in politics in attendance as well as community activist, leaders, etc.
This sounds like it was such a cool panel. Congratulations!!! I’ll have to check out your book 🙂
