We are speaking about God the Father, in heaven, who gave His only Son for the sinners of the world. We are speaking about Jesus, God’s Son who went to the cross, on Calvary for all mankind. We are speaking about Jesus who they made carry His own cross, put that thorny crown on His head, whipped Him, nailed Him to the cross and pierced His side. We are speaking about Jesus, the lamb, whose blood was shed on Calvary.
This is what The Inspirational Collections of books are about. Jesus, the Son of God. God the Father, who sits on the throne in heaven. In each book from The Inspirational Collections, I have written diligently, about daily life, the sins of daily life. The sins of the world. The real-times that we are living in, and the everlasting real-world issues, because we were born into sin.

Buzzin' Around "Fire in the Homefront"
December 31, 2021
Welcome aboard the Harbor Ship! You all better aboard the Harbor Ship now, before I crank this ship up and you be left behind!
Bon Voyage! Let’s buzz around “Jennifer, a Testament of a Virtuous Woman.”
Count it victory! The stakes are higher in my memoirs! Put the phone down, the “Fire Department” cannot put out a godly fire! Only God can put out His fire.
This memoir focuses heavily on my journey in the Lord’s House at Yellowstone Christian Center Church, where an up close looking at “Mr. and Mrs. Dr’s. Pastors” in “Jennifer, a Young-Hearted Bride;” where the Pastors allowed the Jezebel to stalk me, sniffing around my husband thinking his external and internal are the same portrait, when it ain’t so; a begrudgingly him. Which takes you on a truthful journey of “The Holy Ghost Spirit” led me to His House for a “Divine Purpose.” Immediately, upon arrival, God slowly revealed The Spirit of Truth before my eyes; I was in the middle of a “spiritual warfare.” I was not only shocked but devastated, which ignited “Fire in the Homefront.” I tell you the truth, once God lowered the hedges giving you a front row seat to “The Spirit of Truth,” it’s no turning back. Your only option is to face the acceptance of The Spirit of the Truth.
I am the narrative of my life story, which you are hearing my thoughts, feelings, and emotions for how I feel about my life story.
January 19, 2022
In the bedchamber before leaving for church my daughter, the coauthor and I were having one of our many mother-daughter conversations. My daughter smiled and shared words with me when I told her with my sense of humor, but seriously, “If that Jezebel stalk me today, I am going to…”
This Sunday the pastors and the entire congregation has been attentive to the Jezebel stalking me over my husband, looking on with smiles, smirks, surprisingly, and shocking expressions of what the Jezebel did when I did what I told my daughter I would do to her. An act that can be read in “Jennifer, a Testament of a Virtuous Woman.”
Here’s the kicker, she was attracted to his exterior, which it would have been a different story if he had introduced the real him to her, you know, the behind closed doors where the mask comes off letting it all hang out, as so many people are in their daily lives masking.
Parishioners had frustrations about the Dr’s Pastors’ behaviors in the manner that they allowed the stalking situation. They expressed their frustrations among the parishioners, you know where the parishioners converse among themselves.
The humiliation that I endured at Yellowstone Christian Center Church was not foreign to me. Each Sunday, she stalked me I responded God’s way. I remained still and calmed without saying a word in His House, witnessing God unfold “The Spirit of Truth” before my eyes for the “Divine Purpose” He led me there; not knowing a single soul in the church. I didn’t have to say a word. God did all the work. I witnessed God fighting for me without me lifting a hand and opening my mouth; peace be still. It was an unbelievable sight but a believable sight. What I witnessed God do was utterly amazing. Parishioners looked on strangely because in the middle of her taunting me I still worship the Lord giving Him the glory.
Folks do not know my life story. They do not know the history of our young-hearted matrimony of what God brought us through. Upon the release of “Jennifer, a Young-Hearted Bride,” I invite all to pick up a copy.
It's what my hometown Pastor preached, "You don't want to walk your neighbor's shoes, be happy for own shoes because your neighbor's shoes maybe worse than your shoes."
What transpired at Yellowstone Christian Center Church was not only displeasing in our Father’s eyes, but a disgrace.
God’s Grace, my daughter, the coauthor, my righteous witness throughout all this madness. Also, the Dr’s Pastors and the parishioners witnessed what my daughter witnessed in His House.1 Thessalonians 2:10.
“Sitting in the pew witnessing what my mother went through with the Jezebel stalking her over my father was unbearable to me, and it saddened me.” -Shareka Smith
The entirety true account of this act is recorded in “Jennifer, a Testament of a Virtuous Woman.”
Timeline of my “Spiritual Writing Journey” 2007-2019.
Yes Lord, I am a testimony to You will make “everything all right, and You are an able God!” After “Hurricane Andrew” continued on his destructive journey, we exited the house of our new development and it looked like a bomb exploded. The sight was unbelievable; it was God who kept us in the storm and shielded us from Hurricane Andrew’s path, leaving his destructive landmark on all the houses around us except for our house. I looked over at my Volvo and it was in the same condition as our house.
Good Lord! God brought us out that powerful, destructive storm without a scratch. I kept soldiering on “holding onto God’s unchanging hand.”
Embrace one day at a time giving God all the praises and thanking Him for another day’s journey. Life is beautiful, do not take it for granted.
"And as he taught them, he said, "Is it not written: "" "My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations'?..." Mark 11:17 (NIV)

Glancing Through A Message In A Bottle
"The Lord's House is Not a Hangout Joint"
A New you for your Change, A Bright Light Shining on a Better Servant for the Body of Christ
The “They People,” mainly Christians, are within my diligent inspiring writings on The Inspirational Collections website are real characters, in my journey who are explored within The Inspirational Collections of Books, which the real characters intertwined with my creative writings to help us all become "better servants" of our Lord Jesus, and in our daily lives. If you are going to help people, curtailing the Holy Word will not instill God-fearing, which is lacking in real time. “The Lord’s House is Not a Hangout Joint.”
Encore from my 2007, underground “Spiritual Writing Journey.” Do you really, really know Jesus or do you know of Him? Jesus brings new life a new you, becoming a new and better you, letting go of the old you, and the ungodly things that you used to do in your old life that was not of God. Now that you are walking in a new light with the Lord Jesus, embrace conversion for change, dressed in new wine; on a new journey with the Savior who came to save us all. Amen.
Sweet Jesus, every hour we need you. None of us would not have made this journey without Jesus. We made it because He cares, and He loves us all. Take a moment and look back over your life and you will clearly see God’s goodness that you never would have made this journey without our Savior. If yesterday’s journey left you bruised, turn it over to the Lord, He can turn it around. Each brand-new day is a new journey walking in the light, working on you, to becoming a new you for your change, and a better servant for the body of Christ for you to draw people to your bright light, leading them to knocking at Jesus’ door to save their precious souls.
In spite of the turbulence around us from coast to coast aren’t you glad God let you make it through, for the good of His glory when many didn’t make it? Aren’t you glad throughout your journey our Father has been keeping your precious souls and kept you in perfect peace to still be here? Gracious Lord.
Unspeakable joy, He reigns! Each brand-new day is another day for improving you. Let your light shine on the “better” changed you in His House, not the old worse you. You don’t know my story. I’m so close my oppositions are still on my trail. Oh, what a victory!
- Dressed in new wine, be a “better servant” abiding in God rules, statues, and regulations in His House.
- Dressed in new wine, be a “better servant” refraining from igniting friction and strife in His House.
- Dressed in new wine, be a “better servant” with gratitude without the expectation of recognition or fame in His House.
- Dressed in new wine, be a “better servant” halting from crossing over into forbidden boundaries meddling in folk’s business and causing grievances in His House.
- Dressed in new wine, be a “better servant” love the Lord with all your heart, be kindhearted to others, love your neighbor as yourself, and treat everyone right in His House.
Here it is, even the new you need to be worked on because sins creeps in through the temptations of your worldly desires of putting you back on the path of your old track record; with the brewing of a new storm bringing your opposition to your front door. It’s always something every day with daily life itself! Daily you must gear up for the spiritual warfare to weather the storm. Which requires you to ongoing working on you become a “better you” because of the prevalence of sins, wickedness, and evils. Sometimes sins derail you off God’s course, tapping into your personal integrity, doing new sinful things that is out of character for you, which the new you need another new you to step out of your new sins that you collected along the way when you were derailed. It’s good to go through the purging process every now-and-then. People because of sin and the Devil is always up to no good deeds a new you dressed in new wine is continuously working on becoming a better you in His House and your daily life, with God your guiding light. The inviting, and pleasantly new-better you look good on you in His House than the old grumpy you.
Nothing stays new, even the new gets old, which requires work and repairs. Therefore, do not become complacent in the new you, because the new you is going to collect some smelly stuff along the way, which requires you to clean out some stuff becoming a new-better you again and again in this never-ending process because of the prevalence of sins, wickedness, and evils, which is why we need Jesus every single day around the clock. Sin is an everlasting revolving door in this old world.
The Word of God is forever pushing you, backing you, supporting you, and loving you for your change, conversion, which is the core of what I am speaking about.
A Jesus makeover is always exceedingly good! Glory hallelujah.
We all must “Hold to God’s Unchanging Hand.”
