“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds,” Bob Marley.
This thought provoking publication uses Jamaican reggae lyrics to form the platform for the author’s view of life. Lauris Faith, the author, feels that the woman she is today was created by all the choices that she made—even the bad ones. This book is aimed primarily at those who are unsure of how they feel about themselves and feel helpless about how their lives are going. “If we take responsibility for the life we have, we feel we can influence its direction. If we believe the responsibility is someone else’s, we will be powerless to change it. It is the hope that this book will encourage readers to initiate the changes needed to bring their lives into balance. You are the lead musician in the orchestra that brings harmony or disharmony to your life.”
My Life I Make, Revisited features 65 reggae lyrics from various artists including Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Maxi Priest, and Black Uhuru.
“This little book is very inspiring. You can see by her writing … that the author is very direct and makes insightful, thought-provoking points … which carry consistently throughout the book.” — 2 Wired 2 Tired
About the Author:
A graduate of McGill University, Montreal, Canada, Lauris Faith Beckford was born in Kingston, Jamaica, the seventh and last child of her parents.
Lauris is an avid reader and ever-diligent student of life. During all her years as office manager of her husband’s dental practice, the patients instinctively shared their ‘troubles’ with her and she dispensed insightful advice. The influence of her patients on how she views life is unmistakable.
After a period of estrangement from her younger son, Damon — which occurred during his university years — a wonderful reconciliation occurred. It was out of this new mother-son relationship that her literary skills blossomed and matured. It was her son, Damon, who suggested the basis for this book.
