“I have come to believe that life is not just about what happens to us, but what God wants to manifest within us, which is the truth about ourselves.
“We are born overcomers, soul survivors, created to conquer and to win against all odds. This is our true identity. We are empowered to walk through the flaming fire, to pass over the waters of difficulty and to triumph through life’s most adverse circumstances. It is our God-given heritage to claim our redemption, to lay hold of God’s promises and to walk in Divine Destiny.
“The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.”
So says author Toni Nicholson, a former resident of Union City, in the introduction to her new book. An inspirational speaker, playwright and poet, Mrs. Nicholson will be at the Obion County Public Library Saturday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. to sign copies of “A Dance With Destiny.”
It is a book she writes from the triumphant perspective of a woman who has survived Stage 4 cancer, a brain aneurysm, deadly infection, widowhood and betrayal centered in an affair between her husband and her close friend. By holding on to the One Who holds her destiny, she reveals how it is possible to find purpose in pain while “learning to dance in the rain.”
Mrs. Nicholson has been in ministry for more than 25 years and is a part of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation speakers bureau. She has recently moved from the metropolitan Washington area, where she lived for three decades, to Nashville. A member of the Destiny Center, she is the mother of two sons and the daughter of Flossie Thomas of Union City.
The book signing is open to all in the community who would like to meet or greet Mrs. Nicholson and learn how she has decided to approach getting to her final destination, even when facing roadblocks, distractions and adversities.
