VBD: Tell us about your latest release.
STASHANE: Hello Nineveh: A Jonah Journey takes you on a journey of forgiveness, wholeness, discovering purpose and realignment with the will of God. It brings a new perspective to the “Jonah” story – it is more than just being swallowed by a fish. It is a call to obedience to use the keys of the Kingdom to be impactful in the earth-realm.
VBD: Why did you write it?
STASHANE: It started as a soul-cry; a deep search that I began feeling after watching the story of Jonah being depicted in a play in 2017. I could not shake it, so I went on a 40-day fast to seek God for direction which I documented every day. I had some unresolved issues and some painful experiences. I came to the realization that if I was going through it someone else was also having similar experiences. I desired wholeness, healing, and growth. And if I could get over some hurdles, I would love to help others do the same – sharing the strategies I have learned. Writing this book holds me accountable to walking purposefully.
VBD: What are you hoping that readers will gain from reading your book?
STASHANE: It is my desire for readers to gain fresh revelations about God and to discover themselves in the process. I hope my readers find strength to overcome painful pasts, develop strategies to walk boldly in their destiny, and realize that they can still win; they no longer have to wear a façade to function but can be their God-given self.
VBD: What is the most important lesson you’ve learned since becoming an author?
STASHANE: Consistency. I have learned that I must be consistent. I can’t just write the book, publish, and launch it and that’s it. I must become proactive in ensuring that it is in the hands of everyone – I must be consistent with encouraging and sharing what has been poured into me. Growth equals consistency and I desire to grow daily so I must be consistent.
VBD: What’s your favorite Scripture & why?
STASHANE: One of my favorite Scriptures is “And the Lord answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it.” Habakkuk 2:2 (KJV). We must first understand the instructions which we will use to “go forth into the world” and make disciples of all. When the vision is plain, straightforward, clearly understood, it makes it easier for anyone who reads it to bring out the task. It speaks of faith and work. It takes faith to write the vision and action to move in its direction. I’m not just believing; I’m moving in sync with the mandate of God.
VBD: What’s next for you?
STASHANE: Currently, I’m focused on marketing my new book. In addition, I’m about to start writing my next book, while pursuing a master’s degree.
