FAMU alumna Tiesha N. Bryant on her inspiring book: ‘I chose resiliency over regret, and I’m okay with being imperfectly perfect’


I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


ALL IN GOD’S PLAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A book Tiesha N. Bryant needed somewhere in the neighborhood of one month to produce — she began composing it in early April and was finished by month’s end — Imperfectly Perfect: Three Steps On The Parenthood Journey is widely regarded as an interactive book, one that’s filled with pertinent resources and information whether you’re the parent of a newborn, toddler, or for those who are parents of an “active almost first grader or children entering those terrific teen years,” according to a detailed synopsis of Bryant’s book at Amazon.com.

Whomever counted Tiesha N. Bryant out obviously can’t count.

Consider, for instance, when Bryant had surprisingly become pregnant at the tender age of 13.
“Being a teen mom was never my dream, but it was definitely my reality,” Bryant, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that have contributed mightily to her having made her authorship debut. “Pregnant at 13, mom at 14.”
For Bryant, while becoming a teenage mom undoubtedly brought to her life an array of challenges and obstacles, she was determined to make good of a sometimes discomforting, seemingly insurmountable, situation.
“I did it though with three simple steps,” Bryant said of her journey as a teenage mother. “I chose resiliency over regret, and I’m okay with being imperfectly perfect. As parents, it’s time we start taking care of ourselves and focus on us the parent in order to be successful at parenting.”
