Linda: Tell us about yourself?

Keith: I am a Husband, Pastor, Thinker, Author, Teacher, Mentor, Business Man and World Changer. My mission is simple- Teach, Motivate, and Inspire Generations through God’s word.


Linda: Why did you feel you had to write this particular book?

Keith: I felt like I didn’t see many books that spoke on this topic that were easy to read for my generation. We don’t like thick books, were the technology generation we want to get what we need and move on. Also I had dealt with being rejected so many times and still been able to overcome I wanted to be able to help someone else do the same.

Linda: The book is about rejection, why do you feel qualified to write on this subject?


Keith: I feel what qualifies me most to write on this subject is my experience and the wisdom and knowledge I’ve gained through studying other people’s experiences with rejection as well. I also feel that God has given me a certain level of divine revelation is regards to being rejected but still being able to prevail no matter what.

Linda: Who did you write, Rejected But STILL Prevailing,” for?

Keith: I wrote it for the 16-40 year olds in high school or College, in the workforce, Christians and people who don’t know Christ. Moms and Dads, Ministers, ushers, pimps, lawyers, doctors, Cops, Drug Dealers, Drug Users, in a nut shell ANYONE who has dealt with rejection and it has left them stuck.

Linda: What age group(s) do you believe deals with rejection the most?

Keith: The age groups I feel that deal with rejection the most are 16-25 yrs old are a lot of times still trying to figure things out just coming into adulthood and beginning to be established.

Linda: How important was it to include David from the Book of 1 Samuel?

Keith: To me it was vital to the making of the book, David is a prominent figure in Christianity and the Bible, Who is highly regarded as the greatest King to ever live and a man after God’s own heart. To understand that rejection can happen at any level in life, or inspire of your position or closeness to God and to view the way he handled rejection.

Linda: Which chapter was the hardest to write?

Keith: The first chapter was the hardest to write, it’s the chapter that I am the most transparent regarding my personal life.

Linda: What is the main message you want readers to take from your book?

Keith: The main tool in overcoming rejection is building and sustaining a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, staying rooted and grounded in God’s word and understanding that you will be rejected but the way you handle that rejection makes all the difference.

“Transformation: Giving Up the Struggle” by Renee Wiggins


We all have had our ups and downs in our lives, some more than others. But, how we end up in the end, determines how we actually see the storms. The storms help us to change to a better and stronger person. Resisting change can make the obstacles, the hindrances and the storms become even more unbearable. However, if we choose to view them in a different light, change can move us into a bigger and better job, or a more rewarding, loving relationship -it indeed can make us better.

The affirmations presented in Transformations: Give Up the Struggle can be a turning point in your life. View hardships as helpers to a stronger you. See obstacles as ripples in a pond as you move closer to your victory. Discover that hindrances are hurdles that make you jump high above the clouds. See that valleys are mere lessons that will release you from your past and help heal the brokenness. Be ye transformed by renewing of your mind. Affirm yourself-release the past, give up the struggle and move forward -TODAY!
