Darnisha Ramsey-James co-authors new book

When Alcorn State University senior Darnisha Ramsey-James was contacted about being one of the authors of the book, “Grace Under Fire Prayer Devotional: Volume 1,” she jumped at the opportunity.

“When I was asked to be a part of the project, I had gone through so much and I wanted to share with those who would take heed that life isn’t as bad as we sometimes think it is,” said James, a child development major.

The Grace Under Fire series is a personal journey of renewed intimacy between the reader and a higher power while going through the trials of life. James, along with five other authors, encourages readers to make it through the ups and downs of life with prayer.

James credits daily prayer for her ability to successfully navigate through life.

“For me, there’s nothing more fulfilling than giving my creator my first fruits of the day by practicing daily devotionals. Spending time with my creator before I start my day helps me to deal with life’s challenges and what the world has to offer. Devotion allows helps me to focus and get an understanding of what my assignment is for the day. Some people trust in an agenda, but when you get all of your instructions from above, you can’t go wrong.”

The book’s powerful lessons have helped James in conquering her struggles.

“This prayer devotional has helped me overcome some things in my life that I wasn’t aware of.”

“Grace Under Fire Prayer Devotional: Volume 1” is available at Alcorn’s Barnes & Noble Book Store and www.amazon.com.
