International Best Selling Author
Hi, I’m Anita Russell and I am one of the contributing authors of the inspirational anthology, Motherhood Dreams & Success: You Can Have It All. My chapter in the book, Eden Spirit, is based on the premise that in the beginning God created humanity -men and women- with unity of purpose and inclusion in mind, that he specifically designed motherhood to be an amazing, dynamic experience.
In retrospect, I can see that my involvement in this anthology was one of those “let there be light” moments. I simply connected with the compiler Erica Gordon through social media. What I did not expect was the explosion of activity that followed, starting with an invitation to participate in this book project. My life purpose is investing in the growth and development of people and this project allowed me to do so in two important ways.
First, it has opened up the opportunity to invest in others through writing. I believe God connects people not just to fulfill His purpose, but also for them to discover those dream seeds hidden within. For years I had the feeling that there was a book inside of me, that there was something I was assigned to write, specifically with women in mind. Second, I believe in the power of stories as a means of self discovery, teaching and learning. Each of us is an extraordinary story with the potential to have a profound impact on others. We can teach, learn, love, motivate, encourage, and inspire, just by sharing our story.
When you read my story I hope you receive two important lessons – recognizing that your dreams, hopes, and aspirations are worthy of fulfillment and that life is a journey of unlimited self discovery.
I hope you learn and enjoy!
