Special to The Herald
From the pages of Consuellia Renee Diggs-Michael’s new book, Movin’ Mountains The Journey Is More Important Than The Destination, readers will explore the events that molded her faith and shaped her into a truly unique woman of God.
A book signing will be held at Ricks Memorial Library on April 8 from 10 a.m. until noon.
The contents of the book reflect a spirit of thanksgiving as Michael shares her inner most reflections on life. It is the author’s intention to encourage others that with the help of Jesus Christ anything is possible.
“I believe that this book serves a purpose, in the midst of all my ‘doing’ God has used my life as a testimony that I hope will continue to minister to others,” Diggs-Michael said.
Walk with her along this journal through her life, the cause and effort of the decisions she chose to make along the way, the importance of surrender, letting go of negative situations, loving yourself and embracing your future one day at a time.
