The city lights blind your amazement. The sound of the traffic challenges you to be alive. Families ask bystanders to make magic and capture the moment with photographs. Newly engaged couples seal their union by kissing under shooting stars while loving by crossing their hearts.

But if your heart was under arrest, wouldn't you want to embrace something to feel like others?

Go insider the world of one courageous sheep as she discovers that her heart was under attack by darkness. As she travels on a spiritual journey to understanding her purpose, overcoming the undertones of low confidence, self-acceptance, and the importance of inspiration, she rose against the odds with forgiveness and strengthening her faith.

The Power of Dark Places

The Importance of Your Black Shadow

Greensboro, NC: As the media crowd airwaves with the potent details of current events, correctional surgery and fashion sales, the potential of who we “could” be is being unsympathetically sold to millions.

Men and women are mentally wounded as highly sought public figures are invested in staying relevant in the latest “dramatic” scandals. “It’s always harder to see what is in front of you when you are looking everywhere else,” states author of The Black Sheep Shadow, Ashley Terrell. “Everyone has an opinion, but when it is time to speak up very few do. Speak and move with a purpose – that’s relevance. One act of kindness can open doors to have others to walk through.”

In The Black Sheep Shadow, Terrell speaks on the undertones of what we believe holds us to the idea we cannot succeed, grow and become better. Terrell tells her courageous journey of overcoming, forgiveness and finding happiness. Acclaimed to be one of the best novels of 2016, Terrell uses her journey as a platform for others to speak their truths, testimonies and to spread awareness.

Within her inspirational memoir, you discover the motivating logical quotes:

  • “Guided lights” that many overlook on their journey to self-acceptance and self-worth
  • Definition of “hidden faith”
  • “Change has a role call”
  • “Everyone has strength – better yet, a TESTIMONY.”

Your past does not define your future.

In the dark, we do not have shadows.

In the light, we do.

Even me.

Even you.

Even sheep.

It is time out for hiding the scars and pain.

It is time out for disguising when we need help.

It is time to stand up and embrace yourself.

Regardless of violence.

Regardless of opinions.

Regardless of loneliness.

Regardless of beauty.

You are who you are.

Your future is what you want it to be.

You have a shadow. You have an identity.

Even black sheep have shadows.

God’s sheep are only black because society locks us in a room with the light off.

What’s going to make you determined to turn the light on?
