Voices of the 21st Century

I am excited to be a part of yet another book anthology, Voices of the 21st Century, a publication from Women Speakers Association. My chapter of the book, Pangs of Guilt, tells of decision I made that taught me two significant life lessons. First, it is important to recognize that deeply rooted negative emotions often drive decision-making. Second, sometimes God will answer your prayer not to bless you but to teach you.

I am premiere member of Women Speakers Association leading the way for women to take the driver’s seat in creating what is to come. We are clear that this is a birthing process; a collaborative, co-creative experience that is being defined moment by moment by our members. We are committed to you being a part of our evolution.

Responding to what you want, rather than deciding for you, is what we stand for. We invite you to contribute your feelings, feedback and ideas, and to participate in this pivotal, generative conversation; to express yourself authentically and powerfully; to be bold and take a stand; and to give voice to your truest heart’s desires.

To participate in this dialogue and be a part of our community, we invite you to become a WSA member today.

My Story

My writing reflects a belief in the power of stories as a means of self-discovery, teaching and learning, and self-liberation. Each person’s life is an extraordinary collection of stories with the potential to have an empowering impact on others. You can teach, learn, love, motivate, encourage, and inspire, just by sharing your story. —Anita D Russell

I Wanna See Laney’s House A Sibling Story

Every single encounter has added to the perpetual string of pearls that is my life. —Anita D Russell

Your walk with God: A daily testimony of faith, trust and belief? A weekly routine of doctrine, tradition and customs? Or nonexistent? Every person’s story is a microcosmic kit enactment of God’s eternal story, a portrayal of His relationship with humanity. Written with a cathartic tone, my sibling story reveals an adventurous testimony to the presence of God over the entire course of my life. It is a story of developing faith and struggle for identity, personal acceptance, and self-liberation.
