Welcome, Eurita. Please tell us about your current release.
His Strength in My Weakness is my story as it relates to obstacles I faced, childhood abuse I endured at the hands of family members, which followed me into adult relationships, and my return to God. He removed the betrayal and bitterness, cleaned me up for His glory, and chose me to serve women using my life as a guide.
What inspired you to write this book?
God inspired me. Writing was not something I ever thought of doing. I wasn’t good at in school until I worked to obtain my Ph.D. It all came together for me and I realized that writing was a part of my purpose. Writing this book was God’s plan for me to experience healing and help women who endured similar traumas.
Excerpt from His Strength in My Weakness:
“I learned a lot of things in my darkness. I became a stronger person. There were so many times I wanted out. Then I realized that I was meant to be here. So, if I am meant to be here, why not use it for His glory? I decided to use what the devil meant for harm to show God’s divine intervention as He turned it all around for my good.”
What exciting story are you working on next?
The release of the sequel to His Strength in My Weakness. I am excited to share what happened to the characters after the transformation.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I considered myself a writer when my publisher referred to me as one. Until that point, I considered myself an accountant. As I finished another paper for a doctoral class, I did not realize that I had written my first book. On occasion, I remind myself that I am author.
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s your workday like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
No, I do not write full time. I am an accountant by day and a counselor at night. I write during breaks at work or in the evenings when I get home.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Gospel music. Writing inspirations come while I am driving or sitting at my desk listening to music. In those moments when I get caught up in the music, God speaks to me and tells me what to write. I look at the divinely-inspired writing and feel great inside. My “Thank You, God” moment.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a top executive at a Fortune 500 Company, making great money and travelling on company business. Simplified, I just wanted an office job earning enough money to afford a life outside of poverty. I saw myself married with children and a white picket fence.
Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
Everyone has a unique purpose. When you find your purpose, stick with it. It will get tough. Some days, you will question whether you’re doing the right thing. On those days, trust God. Trusting Him is the right thing to do, but it is not always easy. Be encouraged.
Praise for His Strength In My Weakness:
“Dr. Taylor’s story told in her book, His Strength in My Weakness, is powerful, compelling, and at times, raw. She provides a roadmap which shows that no matter how difficult life can be, you can experience hope, breakthrough, and triumph with God.”
—Pastor Michael Kelly, Grace Fellowship Church Columbus, Ohio
“As I laid in the hospital bed and heard the doctor say, ‘You should have been dead,’ I thought about how reading His Strength in My Weakness comforted me. I am not a spiritual person and had limited understanding of the Bible references, but I read them over and over. Now I believe that He has a reason for keeping me alive.”
—Cheryl Kaiser, Manager at Speedway
