Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) October 07, 2016
Markeida L. Johnson’s new book, Dear Dad, It's Me!, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498467117; $6.99, e-book, 9781498467124) shares her emotional experience of being a fatherless daughter to help promote healing and forgiveness with others who have a similar story as hers. This book uncovers the raw truth of her emotions desiring a father’s love that she never received while growing up – significant times in her life when she had to face the sadness of being abandoned by her father and what that experience did to her mindset toward love as she grew up. As Markeida struggled with negativity and insecurity, God emerged in her life to show her an example of love that could never be tarnished or forsaken. She wants the fatherless generation to know they can be free from all the emotional baggage that comes with being fatherless and to know they can break the cycle of repeating fatherless children.
Markeida allows herself to be transparent through her circumstances and decisions so that others can see that no matter what life dishes out, anyone can overcome obstacles. God has shown a tremendous amount of grace and mercy in her life, and she is appreciative of where He has brought her from, and absolutely excited about where He is taking her. She is proud to say that she no longer is a victim of her circumstances.
“I hope readers will gain strength to forgive and let go of the past or maybe even their present hurt and pain of being in a fatherless generation,” states the author. “I want them to know they do not have to be bound in body, mind or soul because of someone else's decision. I want them to break away from the chains of rejection and neglect from someone who didn’t have the capacity to love them.”
