The Stay Strong and Stand Show

The Stay Strong and Stand Show

By Aleja Bennett
This show was created in 2011, now on over 10 listening platforms, empowering-encouraging the lives of the abused, survivors, suicide prevention, depression, PTSD, along with 14 books I've written. Podcasting has been another platform to share my story in hopes to bring hope to the hopeless and courage to the discouraged. I've been delivered, healed, set free from so many things that traumas tried to give me. Help me help others that need a quick daily lift me up as we stay strong and stand together. You can donate

Secrets Of A Mother
I’ve hated this woman. I’ve not loved her at full capacity. I’ve fed her lies & told her she wasn’t good enough and have allowed others to tell her she wasn't good enough. I’ve allowed her to be broken. I've allowed others to treat her disrespectfully. I’ve allowed her to run through brick walls & battle for others who won’t even stand for her. I couldn’t stop individuals from abandoning her, yet I’ve seen her get up and stand to be a light to the world & love others despite all. I have stood paralyzed by fear while she fought battles in her mind, heart and soul. This woman messed up many times, as a gf, a daughter, a mother or as a friend, because she doesn’t always say or do the "right things". She has a smart mouth, and she has secrets. She has scars... because she has a history. Some people love this woman, some like her, and some people don't care for her at all. She has done good in her life. She has done bad in her life. She goes days without makeup, or shaving her legs (most of the time!) She doesn’t get dressed up often. She is random and sometimes silly. She is who she is. Every mistake, failure, trial, disappointment, success, joy, and achievement has made her the woman she is today. You can love her or not. But if she loves you, she will do it with her whole heart, and she will make no apologies for the way she is. This Woman is a WARRIOR. She’s not perfect. She’s UNSTOPPABLE. Gracefully broken but beautifully standing. She is loved. She is life. She is transformation. She is Grace. She is BRAVE! Ladies, I dare you to put this on your status, with a picture of yourself, If you’re proud to be who you are. ❤️❤️❤️

Gifts You Can Give All Year Long
Give someone a gift that keeps on giving. I wrote 14 books to inspire, empower and change lives that's why the cost is so so low. When I was sad or thought I was at my wits end, God held my hand-when I wrote All I Can do Is Stand 5am one morning, Part Two and adopted abused and Still Standing. They were written to be encouraging reads for all ages. This is my way of giving back life into others as God kept me through traumas, rejection, adoption, abandonment, depression, suicide, healing, deliverance-that left me with a heart of forgiveness and genuine love for all then I gladly accepted the call to Minister. Preachers! Ministers! Prophets! Please start to be for real because hurting people need you to be that shining light that God has called us to be. My sister's and brothers in Christ we are all not the same. I'm one of the genuine ones, they don't even FELLOWSHIP with me and I'm a Minister which is very sad. Whose really going to heaven?
