Interview-JRenea Morris
Born and raised in Indiana, this beautiful adoptive mother of 3 sons; ages 6, 7, and 10, survived verbal and emotional abuse to discover her true strength, beauty, and resilience. She met her now ex-husband in her family church. She remembered her first words to him when he told her, "God told me you would be my wife." She immediately responded, "God didn't tell me that, and I believe that the enemy is sending you to destroy me." Unfortunately, these words would ring true. She would eventually marry him, and experience emotional and verbal abuse that continued to escalate in her life. The toll that this took on her and her children was tremendous. However, her faith in God brought her back to a place of surrender, and He provided her with the grace and strength to leave her abuser. "I'm a work from home, home school mom. I graduated nursing school with an associates degree which is one of my greatest accomplishments. I love having movie nights with my boys and spending time with friends. It is my ambition to raise well rounded, God fearing men who will not be ashamed to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. I also desire to be the voice to adoptive mothers that will take authority over the condemnation that has them bound and that is keeping them from living out their God ordained destiny." This story of courage and faith is truly moving!

Scary Movies- Are We Desensitized?

(Reading)- Introduction of, "The Sounds of Silence Are The Loudest"
I had dreams and visions of Hell a while back, but instead of sharing with people what I saw, I decided to write about them in my first novel, "On Earth As It Is In Hell." The dreams were very vivid and detailed. I feared the ridicule or backlash that I would receive if I shared.  The book came about at the same time that I was experiencing Hell on Earth through domestic violence. I was almost killed in that relationship, and after escaping the tumultuous marriage, I began to have the dreams. As bad as I thought that my experience, and the experiences of others were; I heard a voice that said this is the time, and you are the candidate for evil forces to spread their plan to destroy you totally, through suicide, depression, and other feelings that I felt. Satan's plan is to do on Earth as it its in Hell. I wrote about a girl, her homosexual friend, and a pastor that experienced times when these evil forces whispered in their ears to direct their fragile thoughts. Now comes my second book; and just like before, there was another evil force that was revealed to me through a dream. This dream was directed at murder, serial killers, organ harvesting, satanic abuse, and children. Do you know who your children or teenagers are communicating with? This story is the tale of a serial killer that experienced his own abuse as a child. He was so misguided that he cracked, and could be used by evil influences to commit heinous acts against children. As before, instead of sharing what I saw, I decided to write it as a fiction thriller; but listen carefully, as there are things in which we don't understand, but it does not mean it doesn't occur.  "The Sounds of Silence Are The Loudest," available on Amazon and

The book that he wrote, "From the Windows of Inspiration through the Revelation of Incarceration, Volume 1," is an inspiration; and you can feel his pain as he talks to the Lord about the things he had done, and the pain that was left behind.  God heard those words, and Jermaine has gone through quite a journey, but God never left him.

Domestic Violence (Married to an abusive Police Officer)
I want to take the time to address this important topic! Domestic violence affects many lives, and the pain hurts the mind, body, and soul. I know, I lived it for 10 years. I was a former police officer, married to a narcissistic; physically, and emotionally abusive police officer. If it can affect our home, it can affect anyone's home or life.  I wanted to tell my story, and I hope that someone listening will hear something familiar, and began to think about the life that they deserve versus the one that they are experiencing. Special shout out to Team Tina! This was started by Mr. Don Estes who lost his beautiful niece to domestic violence! She was beaten until bones in both of her boyfriends hands came out of the skin, when he could no longer beat her with his hands, he stomped her with his boots until she was no longer recognizable!  Join Don as he advocates for victims to try to get the Tina Law passed in all states that will require abusers to be placed on a registry.

Sex- What are you afraid of?
SEX- a very taboo subject in my christian, Church of God In Christ (COGIC) upbringing.  When I was in the 6th grade, I wrote my first series of romantic/sexual type stories. I would make up stories for my friends, placing them in a tale of romance and ecstasy. I was admonished about ever writing this type of material again by my parents; when I was caught by my teacher, and taken before the principal. In this  interview with Mr. Ron Shaw, I discuss writing and publishing my first book, "On Earth As It Is In Hell." I also  talk about a book that I have written, but not yet published.  This book of sexuality and erotica has been hidden in the archives of my computer for fear of what people would think of me; and the memory of my mom's disappointment for writing such explicit material in elementary school. I think it is time to reveal, and introduce the story to the world, and other genres that I have not yet explored due to lack of knowledge of the subject, fear of what others may think, or nervousness about it being well-received. Fear keeps us from realizing our full potential sometimes. What are your fears when it comes to realizing the potential that lies in your heart? Listen to the interview with Mr. Ronnie Shaw in 2015, for 2019 will bring stories not yet told, but will soon unfold!!

From Suicidal to Joy Unspeakable Joy in 147 days, Using the Law of Attraction
I went from severe depression and suicidal ideations to unspeakable joy in just 147 days. What are you doing for self-care during the holiday season? As we go into 2019, people often reflect on what they went through the previous year(s). I used the law of attraction for many years without knowing it. I attracted so much negativity in my life that I struggled to live.  A Pastor that took advantage of me, that caused church hurt, domestic violence, evil bosses  and co-workers at work, lack of money to pay my bills, job loss! Wow, the list goes on! I started a thankfulness journal 147 days ago, and my whole life changed! I wrote what I was thankful for daily, and what I wanted to happen in my life. Do you know, everything that I wrote, I got it! Acting roles, Co-host of a Sirius XM Radio Show, Book sales,  Speaking opportunities; and for the first time since I was a girl, a love and forgiveness for myself.  Stay encouraged, love yourself first; and it will exude, and attract the love from people with the same energy!!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

(Reading)- Chapter 1 of, "On Earth As It Is In Hell"
In this episode, I read Chapter 1 of, "On Earth As It Is In Hell," in which we learn about Clara; a character in the story that doesn't trust or believe in God anymore due to His lack of intervention in her life.  Such a dangerous state to be in, since we heard the plans that were made in Hell previously in Episode 1- The Introduction. Hear about her Hell on Earth!! Have you ever been broke, depressed, hurt, and you prayed for reprieve but received no answers? However, you watched as others prospered, and wondered what they were doing to achieve happiness and abundance. So you began to think outside the box, even if that meant opening Pandora's Box? Clara did, and what she uncovered was more than she could handle! Just when she thought that she could depend on the church to get a prayer through, the evil that was unleashed from the very pits of Hell to further her despair, meets her there. Is the Pastor not even safe from the forces of evil? Find Out!! Get your copy of this revealing book at

Each of them are already experiencing Hell on Earth, but the  ultimate plan is to claim them for Hell! What happens next may shock you!
