Teresia, Tell us about your book?
“Polish your Diamond” is a book about teaching women from all walks of life to shine, teaching them how to stay polished and how to be the women they were called to be by changing their mindset to one that’s positive, confident and brighter in every area of life. Polish your diamond was written for the young and the older. My book will help women view themselves as God views them, a beautiful brilliant diamond!
How did you come up with idea for this book?
God instructed me to write this book to encourage and empower women using my life experiences and sharing them. In my life I have been through a lot of hard situations especially in relationships. In my book, I tell about some of those things, I remember being a woman that didn’t know who she was, didn’t think I was valuable or worth much at all, so I settled for what came my way. So God spoke to me to share with women and help them see themselves as I now see myself, a beautiful shining diamond!
What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?
As I mentioned earlier, I have been through some rough bumps in life and as I was writing this book, my mind did go back to my past, the hurt and pain that I endured all because I saw myself way differently than God saw me, so I had some moments that I pondered on and said wow! Look at all you went through!!!! But as I continued to write I know now that all that I went through was to help some women out there that was just like me. So I will never get mad at anyone in my past or feel sorry for myself, im a new woman now and what I have been through has helped me to be stronger and more confident because during those times, I built a strong relationship with God. The past is over and I’m on an empowering mission to help fellow sisters come forth. No more crying and feeling sorry for myself, I’m a beautiful and I now help women to find their shine.
Why do you write?
I love putting my thoughts on paper, as I write, I just go on and on. God speaks and I write, it’s just so peaceful. As I was writing my book, I was set at a page a day, but as I set down in front of my computer, it just flowed so I went with it. I have so much to say and writing it all out helps me and it helps others. It’s my way of getting it all out and reloading more in. The more I write the more I get!

After reading my book, women will discover their inner brilliance, elevate their thinking, build their self-esteem and increase their value.
