Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6 NIV)
CARRYING ON MOM’S LEGACY
LaKeisha Trimm-Green was blessed to have had a close-knit relationship with her mother.
So much, in fact, that she felt compelled to write about her awe-inspiring journey with arguably the most beloved person in her life who has descended unto glory.
“The reason I decided to take part on this book is because I have always loved my relationship I had with my mother,” Trimm-Green, a Houston-area resident told Making Headline News this week. “I have always loved telling my children how similar my relationship with my mother is to my relationship with them.”
The book to which Trimm-Green is alluding is Pendulum Of A Mother’s Love, a newly-assembled, spiritually-empowering written document that made its official release in August 2020.

A book that is orchestrated by Washington DC area businesswoman-turned-author Takia Chase-Smith, Pendulum Of A Mother’s Love is comprised of 15 co-authors, accompanied by 16 intriguingly compelling, life-altering stories, each of which figures to have a massive kingdom impact for such a pivotal time as now.
“I have always wanted to write as much as I journal,” Trimm-Green, a native of Franklin, Louisiana, said of her quest in becoming an author. “I felt God was giving me a chance to get my story out one piece at a time and that it could help others if I share.”
To her credit, since having recently made her authorship debut, Trimm-Green has been as good as advertised, considering in such a brief timeframe, she has already taken part in two book collaborations.
Besides Pendulum Of A Mother’s Love, Trimm-Green is one of 90 co-authors who have collectively birthed longtime Washington DC author Vernessa Blackwell’s Finding Joy In the Journey: Healthy Ways to Navigate Grief 90 Day Devotional.
In this anthology, these Christian-based writers strategically engage in real talk about love, loss, grief, and healing, among other pertinent topics.
As for Pendulum Of A Mother’s Love, Trimm-Green was rather forthright and direct when issuing her divine message to the masses.
“The message I want to get out to everyone is that a relationship with your mother is priceless and precious and you only get one mother,” Trimm-Green, U.S. Army veteran and member of Sigma Phi Psi Military Sorority — first female military sorority — said. “No matter what is going on, you should work it out because we never know the day, nor the hour that we could be taken away.”
In a nutshell, Trimm-Green emphasized, “Love on your mother while she is still here. No one will treat you like her. The relationship between a mother and her child is so beautiful. A mother’s love is deep.”
As expected, Trimm-Green has become the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback.
“From everyone that have read the book, they have shaded tears and told me that they were touched by some of the stories,” Trimm-Green, a mother of four and grandmother of four, said. “My son’s girlfriend read my story and she told me, ‘Wow, Mrs. Keisha! I didn’t know, but now I see why you are the way you are with your children.’ Nothing but positivity about the women’s stories, some of them can relate to what is in the book.”
As Trimm-Green recalls, her having crossed paths with Blackwell had ultimately given way to a divine connection with Chase-Smith.
“God gave me the vision to co-author this book when the opportunity came when I was exposed to being part of Finding Joy in The Journey with Author Vernessa Blackwell, Takia’s mother,” Trimm-Green said. “The vision of writing came to me in 1993 when my mom passed away to write about our stories. When Mrs. Chase-Smith introduced the idea about a collaboration, I jumped on it. I always wanted to write about my relationship with my mom and I love to talk about it.
“This book is part of my journey in life because it’s the way God wants me to reach others through my writing,” Trimm-Green continued. “I have been journaling for a long time, but never knowing what to do with it. When I started talking to my doctors about my writing, they would ask me, ‘Why I don’t write books on what I have been through?’ It may be a way to help others.”
Indeed, it is, as evidenced by all the favorable feedback she’s garnered since she recently made her ceremonious authorship debut.
Surely, mom is looking down from the heavens and smiling from ear to ear amid her daughter’s latest milestone.
