In January 2017, not only was I separated from my husband, but I also lost my job. These two things were such a significant part of me that I didn’t know who I was without them. I mean they both were in my life for over 20 years. I found myself in the lowest point of my life, but I knew that I couldn’t stay in that place. I had to get free not just for me but for my two children, so I had to find out who Natashia Brewer was. I took time and created a process to allow me to heal. Since I am also a songwriter, I titled my process Finding Life’s Love Song. The process made me dig deep and deal with all the baggage that was inviting drama and pain into my daily life.
Once I completed the process and felt completely free, I knew that I could not keep it to myself but didn’t know how to share it with the world. One night in a dream, I received the God given idea to write my first book titled Love Song. The book not only explores the life of a very successful business women, but it also incorporates part of the process to Finding Life’s Love Song.
Since writing Love Song, I was later divinely given the idea for my new book titled Biblical Proportions which I finished writing in October 2017. However, I knew it was not the time to release it. I prayed about it and guided to release the book for such a time as this. The book was released on May 11, 2018. Biblical Proportions is a modern-day parable, inspired by the story of Esau and Jacob. It is a powerful fictional tale that will take readers inside the drama of twin brothers Edward and James which threaten to destroy them. I made sure to illustrate the perils brought about by sinful choices, but also share insights and guidance on how they rebound from devasting consequences through faith and a deeper relationship with God.
When I read through both books, I see some of the drama and pain that I have endured in my life in the pages. I worked hard to develop a closer relationship with God, and I can say that now I am truly free. I recognize that everything that happened, they happened for a reason. The storms that I endured, especially over the last two years, where not meant to hurt me. These situations, pain, and tears ultimately pushed me into purpose. My purpose is to motivate and inspire people through my work; songs, books, spoken word or music.
Biblical ProportionsEdward and James Shaw are twins who are successful executives at Rock Star Records. The company that was started and operated by their father, Irvin, who is a well-known hip hop artist. Edward has a great love for music and is focused on ensuring the success of the business, just like his dad. James on the other hand has a great love for women and power.
Unfortunately, they were blindsided by the challenges of life which were of biblical proportions. Edward found himself in the struggle of his life to save his marriage and his career after there had been some horrible choices made, while James found himself fighting for his freedom.
The only way for them to find their way through the drama, infidelity, damaged trust, addiction, meaningless sex, and betrayal was to build a solid relationship with God. When Edward and James hit rock bottom mentally and emotionally, they found out who they were and what the Lord called them to do. They both began to walk into their purpose realizing that although the storms came one after another, after another and almost took them out; they survived through the grace of God…
Take this journey with Edward and James and the rest of the Shaw family as they endure the many trials and tribulations of this life.
Read an excerpt:
“Well if that is how you going to be, then how do you think Jackie is going to feel when she finds out what we have been doing together all this time. How together is your happy family going to be then?” Rita threatened.
This statement infuriated James to his core.
Life Lesson Four: What’s done in the dark will eventually come to light because buried bones won’t stay hidden always. Although people agree to a situation where they are on the “side”, it doesn’t mean that they won’t eventually catch feelings and forget their position.
