"There is Purpose in Your Valley: Understanding Life's Struggles I can't say enough great things about the book. After only reading the first few page it had me in tear because I am dealing with some things. This amazing book truly ministers to your heart and soul. Dr Dowdy breaks down the word of God so that it is easy for every one to understand. All of lessons in There is Purpose in Your Valley: Understanding Life's Struggles are backed up by scripture from God's word. This is not a book that you read in sitting because if you try you will miss the true blessing of its message. I high recommend this book and know I will be reading it again very soon."

The wealth and strength of family togetherness: working and eating together, talking and listening to each other as we share our stories, laughter and fears are quickly becoming a lost culture of the past as technology and social media increase.

She offers a sense of the emotions and courage of the youth, as they confront their fears. She allows us to discover the amazing strength and endurance of the women and children of this community. Come along, as she strolls through the yards and fields to watch children enjoy fun, free playtime.

Love Those Tales!
What delightful and mysterious tales from a small rural community in Moore County North Carolina. Dr. Dowdy not only captures the essence of the community but she also allows the reader to actually feel the presence and richness of the culture in the community. As the tales are recounted and woven into a splendor of historic community richness one finds oneself shaking with laughter at one moment and the next moment you are on edge waiting to know what's around the corner.
I certainly hope that Dr. Dowdy has another manuscript in the works to be published in the very near future.

The Wisdom and Pineal Series was birthed to encourage brown children by giving them the often unspoken truths of our history and to help them understand who we really are. For too long, brown children have wished they looked different, wanting to be someone else other than themselves. It is time for brown children to understand that they are valued and worth much more than the American majority would want them to believe. Wanna Know a Secret? is the very first book in this series. This first book gives an overview of identity, while the succeeding books will explain more focused facts and truths to encourage the children and teach them their true identity.
I wanted to read to my grands but read it first. Very inspirational and educating. I know they're going to love it!
The author uses the non-fictional setting of a lake in Willingboro, New Jersey and creates an endearing story of an unusual and unlikely friendship. When tragedy strikes, the characters take us on a trip of faith and the process of a miracle, as we watch beautiful scenes unfold.
