We need to stand up and promote the books that have the messages our children and our country needs to hear. Promotion doesn't always have to be done for monetary reasons.

Lacresha's Motivational Moment - LOOK AHEAD
One of the hardest things to do today in the entertainment industry is to look ahead. None of us has as much foresight as we'd like to have, but we all have some.
When you're writing, it is your responsibility to look ahead of you to see what children in later generations will see, to feel how they may feel, and to try to interpret your work they way they will. I know it isn't easy to have an imagination free from all restraints but still find the restraint of Christianity there. I know it gets even harder when we see other professing Christians write, sing and do whatever they want to do and still feel comfortable saying they serve God. But, the rewards of faithfulness are many. Don't give up on writing inspirational stuff for the Lord and to help others. Stay strong in your convictions and soon your payday will arrive! Remember who you are and who you belong to.
