    In the midst of going through one of the darkest periods in her life, Alcorn State University alumna Brittney Broadwater found peace in writing three years ago. In the process of penning what would become her first publication, “It Is Finished: A Devotional of Unadulterated Truth,” she realized that her writing could not only get her through tough times, but also help others.

    “At the time I began writing three years ago, I was experiencing heartbreak,” said Broadwater, who graduated from Alcorn in 2011. “I began writing as therapy and for spiritual healing and realized my writing was not only a blessing to me, but also a blessing to others. This year, I finally decided to pursue publishing the devotional in an effort to use my story as a blessing to others.”
