Welcome back to another episode of Sparkle Speak! Listen to our guest - Cynthia Garrett - share about her books: "Prodigal Daughter : A Journey Home to Identity” and “I Choose Victory: Moving from Victim to Victor”.

Cynthia is a LOVELY human –  we discuss moving from a victim’s mindset towards one of victory. She quotes: “We are the sum total of the choices that we make in Christ who created us." We discuss what it means to transform our minds so we can win mental battles, and choose victory despite our trials. We discuss forgiveness and what it means to honor the gift of forgiveness that Jesus gave the world. Disclaimer: One of the topics we discuss is sexual abuse and the healing Cynthia experienced.

At the end, Cynthia also shares a couple interesting moments from her time spent in Hollywood! "Cynthia began her career in television on VH1 before going on to host LATER w/Cynthia Garrett on NBC, making her the first African American woman to ever host a network late night show. She now travels the world speaking, teaching, preaching and sharing life and Jesus in her own unique and powerful way". (Taken from Cynthia Garrett Ministries -
