Sweeter Than the Honey Blog Tour

LaShanda Michelle is an author and a playwright. In her free time she enjoys reading, dancing, and spending time with her family. She is a native of Huntsville, Texas.


Kamilah Wright has a lot on her shoulders for someone entering their senior year of high school. Not only does her mom expect her to raise the other seven children in their home, but she’s also required to turn a blind eye to her father’s infidelity, as well as maintain a perfect 4.0 GPA in order to get the academic scholarship she desperately needs to attend college. To complicate matters even more, she’s also a rape victim. The only person she’s told is her best friend, Eric, whom she’s secretly in love with. Through all of this Kamilah convinces herself that she has everything under control. 

That is until she meets Summer Freeman. The beautiful new girl at school, Summer introduces Kamilah to a lifestyle that she’s never known, including fashion, luxury, and alternative viewpoints that conflict with her Christian upbringing. Pretty soon the love she has for her new friend evolves into something more, and Kamilah has to prove which love she will devote herself to. Will she stay in the same sex relationship that feels so right, or will she embrace the faith she didn’t know meant so much to her.

Book Reviewed  by  Linda Fegins

In  Sweeter Than the Honey  by LaShanda Michelle Kamilah Wright, is an excellent  high school senior, a rape victim  with low self-esteem and serves as the housekeeper and surrogate mother for her seven brothers and sisters while her mother works and father comes and goes as he pleases. She holds a long-time crush on her best friend, Eric, and can’t bring herself to tell him her true feelings.  Summer Freeman ,is  the new girl in school, who turns heads the minute she steps in the door.  Eric  turns his attention to Summer.  

Summer is a free spirit who opens up a whole new world to Kamilah. She opens up Kamilah’s eyes to fashion, make-up and sexuality.  Kamilah’s friendship with Summer grows to more than what is acceptable in the church, God’s eyes, Kamilah’s mother and society. She has to make a decision between what the Word of God states according to her Christian upbringing and alternative viewpoints that say that this is an acceptable relationship. Will Summer come to believe in the Lord, Jesus Christ? 

 LaShanda Michelle with compassion, yet honesty deals with this controversial subject, of young women struggling with their sexual identity.  The church, for the most part, does not always, lovingly but firmly, confront the subject of homosexuality in a way where true healing and deliverance can occur.  This story should encourage those of us who are ministry leaders and believers to think about how we can address this issue in our churches. LaShanda’s style of writing keeps the readers intrigued.

“Ingredients For Prayer” by Eric A. Lambert, Jr.- Book Review by L. Fegins

 ” The right way to pray , then is the way that allows us to communicate with God. For prayer is not ritual; it is the souls’ inherent response to a relationship with a loving Father.” -Collen Townsend Evans

     We have heard that the Lord is just a prayer away. “O what needless pain webcover[1]we bear, all because we do not carry everything to the Lord in prayer” the song goes.  Rev. Lambert points out in his book “Ingredients for Prayer: A Practical Approach to Maximizing Your Time With God”,  that “teach us how to pray is often the hearts cry of the believer in the world today”.  Prayer, simply put, is communication with God.  As a Prayer Coordinator for the Lydia Circle of  Christian Professional and  Business Women, I pray with and “teach” women how to pray. On the first day of the “prayer boot camp” I tell them that as “you begin your journey into prayer, one of the main reasons for prayer is to grow a relationship with God by spending time with Him”.

    Rev.  Lambert, using the Model Prayer, provides the reader with some simple, but profound principles about prayer’s purpose and results, couched in easy to understand language. He also enunciates practical and straightforward steps to praying effectively. He points out that contrary to our cultural influences to “use prayer to bully the Lord into doing what we want” and for material gain, the purpose of prayer is to build a personal relationship with the Father. “Prayer is going to God and asking for His will, not things”, he remarks.  Lambert uses Jesus as a model of how to pray effectively as Jesus both needed and desired time with God and gives us the ingredients for prayer. What Lambert makes clear is that “prayer must be about getting closer to the Father and knowing and receiving His will”.

     This wonderful little book shares many rich prayer nuggets about knowing what to pray for, “praying it through” ,  how “prayer is work” and praying for others. As a Prayer Coordinator, it affirmed my teaching on prayer, enhanced my insight, and inspired me to encourage the woman to grow to a higher prayer level.

   Rev. Eric A. Lambert Jr. responded to God’s call to Jesus Christ in 1971. From that time he was active in Christian ministry, serving in a variety of Eric Lambert headshot 07 tie[1]capacities at Deliverance Evangelistic Church, under the pastorate of the Rev. Dr. Bejamin Smith Sr. In 1987, after God’s leading, Rev. Lambert established Bethel Deliverance International Church in 1987 with seven committed believers, just north of his hometown of Philadelphia. In addition to pastoring, Rev. Lambert is fulfilling his apostolic calling, having planted a number of churches and developed pastoral relationships with both new and seasoned pastors. He remains committed to spreading the love of God to those who do not know Him while stabilizing and fortifying believers. This is evident not only in his church but in the messages of his books.
