From the Back Cover --

IT’S A RAP! “What’s that?” you ask: It’s a spiritual flavorable, break it down book of rhythm and blues of being a teen. It’s a mother-daughter duet combining together to help save lives with the written word. The book has pizzazz, as you’ll see in the segments of “Mandi’s Minute” which gives a hip teen point of view. Take a seat, stay a while, and be open to receive a blessing. Holla!!.

Easy reading; a tool especially useful for youth ministry. Open, honest and direct poems to make you search your heart and decide this day whom you will serve. I like this book very much, and I recommend it with all my heart.
--- Minister Rhonda L. Neal First Lady, Mt. Ennon Baptist Church, Clinton, MD

This is a unique mother-daughter teamwork, as they reflect on some very important issues today's teens face. They speak to both young men and young women. The mother uses poems to express issues she knows teens and young adults are dealing with today, keeping in mind her own daughter and son. To add to that, her daughter writing as “Mandi's Minute” provides a young teen's view and follow-up of the issues raised by the poem. Mandi's Minute also provides some insightful encouragement and challenges to the reader.
--- Donald B. Curtis Pastor, Christ's Church, Waldorf, MD Co-author, “The Fine Art of Marriage: When Two Become One”

About the Author --

The authors are a mother-daughter team who share many of the same talents. They have shared many activities together including: piano lessons, art lessons, and now they share their love for creative writing together. Amanda is on the Praise Dance Ministry, and is Vice President of our church Youth Ministry. In her spare time, Amanda enjoys designing hair-braiding styles. Judy has been involved in youth ministry throughout her Christian walk. She is the mother of two teens, and has always enjoyed being involved in their lives, as well as in the lives of their friends and our relatives. She tries to use every opportunity to “pour wisdom” into their lives. They both have drawn on their experiences, and the realization of the world in which we live for inspiration for this book.
