    First Live Excerpt Reading of REDISCOVERING KIA By Hezekiah L. Montgomery

    in Christianity

    Join me Hezekiah L. Montgomery along with my Co-Host Nichelle Johnson as I do my first Excerpt readings from my first novel REDISCOVERING KIA.  We are in our last month of fundraising for REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY so I'm looking forward to doing something different since the book came out.  People have told me that they've enjoyed REDISCOVERING KIA.  So as part of our fundraising month I'm doing my first reading ever.  Am I little nervous, yes, but I know that I'm going to have some fun as well as I read, talk about the reading and have discussion as well.


    Rediscovering Kia was my testimony that God had me right down to be able to help others that may get caught up in sin and don't know how to get back on course to God.  As I  wrote there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, we and I mean us, you and me have to hold on and not give up and not worry about what others are thinking because we have a God who's waiting with His arms OPEN WIDE for us to return to Him and be a light for others.


    I will say that I enjoyed the last show with all of the support t that was there to discuss the book and how it's going to be an awesome play.  I'm totally siked right now with jus the thought of my first novel becoming a play.  So with that say, join me as I read, ignite your interest and plug you into supporting REDISCOVERING KIA THE PLAY.  And I'll see you at the Mirror...
