In this book you will imagine what it is like to grow up in the fifties. There was much drama and excitement in Sheryl's earlier life. Her greatest accomplishments happened when she finally learned how to love herself through God's fervent love. Now she wants to pass on her wisdom to others. Leaving My SHOES Behind helps you to overcome low self-esteem, disrespect, inferiority complex, and insecurity, all of which she calls carnal leeches. This book will also encourage you to examine your spiritual life and make decisions about your purpose in life. Sheryl Tillis is an Educator in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
