So here I am back for the year with a spotlight post of the book Accepted, Secured, Significant: Empowering, Igniting and Fulfilling your Purpose by Kemley Whiteside. Of course I am not alone giving a spotlight for the same but also coming up with an interview of the author, so that you can get a fair idea about the book. Trust me, you will be intrigued as me at the end of the day about the book.
So before going in to the interview let us see what this book is all about. Let us see it in the author’s words and whom it is written for.
This text is a spiritual and inspirational journey for those drawn away from their purpose by the circumstances of their lives. This book is dedicated to those told they would never amount to anything.
It is for those told they would be just like their mother or father, that they are idiots, mistakes, and failures. It is for the pushed aside and ignored. It is for those under shadow, and for those abused from childhood. It is for the molested, and the ones told that no one loves them and no one ever would. It is for the misled and mistreated. It is for the suicidal. It is for the victims of domestic violence and abusive relationships. It is for those in spiritual bondage, and those who don’t believe in themselves. It is for those suffering from cancer or other diseases. It is for the motherless, fatherless, jobless, and homeless. It is for the depressive and anxious, the lonely and isolated. This book is for the hopeless.
To my brothers and sisters who need a way out: This book was written just for you. It is to polish your existence and your purpose on this earth.
This book was inspired and written by the Holy Spirit to assure you that, as a child of God, you no longer have to feel bound by labels and curses spoken over the course of your life. God wants to reinforce in your heart how valuable you are and how much you mean to Him. He wants you to know that through Him, you are Accepted, Secured, and Significant.

My short interview with the author of the book.
Do you write on a part-time or full time basis?
I write on a part-time basis because I have a full time job. I spend about twenty-hours a week with a project.
How did you get the idea of the title?
I sat in my home office one day experiencing a tremendous hurt in my life, and the Spirit of God came upon me and told me that in God I will always be Accepted, Secured, Significant. The title came about from that challenging experience.
What is the easiest or hardest thing about writing?
The easiest thing about writing is that you can write until you can’t stop. The hardest part is actually figuring out when you stop if it makes sense. The most difficult thing is the editing part after you have put all of your ideas in place.
Do you edit your own books?
No. I have an editor who handles the editing and it is always best to have someone else who should edit your book.
Do you think the cover of the book plays a big part in the sales?
I think the cover of a book is a huge impact on the sales of the book. I do believe people are more visual and anything that is attracting to their eyes they will gravitate easily. It certainly helps in sales.
