For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NKJV)
Judge Leonia J. Lloyd is approximately four months removed from having witnessed the much-anticipated release of her new book, Your Honor, Your Honor: A Journey Through Grief to Restorative Justice.
Much to her delight, she has quickly become the beneficiary of an assortment of rave reviews.
Said one reader of a Your Honor, Your Honor book that has been as good as advertised: “Your book is so inspiring! Amazing, you laugh, cry and feel like you can fight the world.”
And another reader: “I am glad you are doing interviews because your story and your book are amazing. I am telling everyone to read it and buy it on Amazon.”
And another reader: “I am halfway through the book and I’m totally ELECTRIFIED. While reading I’ve had so many emotions. I’ve cried, laughed and truly been INSPIRED. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for completing this book to share with us.”
And another reader: “Received my copy of Your Honor, Your Honor, and I started reading it! It’s very good! I plan to purchase more copies and give them as gifts! My sister gave me Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” autobiography which I loved. Your story is every bit as interesting and inspirational!”
For what it’s worth, such favorable feedback is a true testament of Judge Lloyd’s resourcefulness, particularly as a newcomer to this ever-so-competitive world of authorship.
Released officially on August 4, 2020, Your Honor, Your Honor: A Journey Through Grief to Restorative Justice, by all accounts, is shaping up to become a massive must-read.
In many aspects, it already is.
“(I aspire) to convince people that they can dream big dreams and reach them by setting goals and the plans to work towards those goals,” Judge Lloyd, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining why she deemed it imperative to write such an intriguing, life-altering book. “(I want to inspire them that) they can never give up on your dreams, no matter what trials, tribulations and obstacles come your way.”

A book that’s comprised of 344 pages in length, Judge Lloyd’s Your Honor, Your Honor: A Journey Through Grief to Restorative Justice vividly relives 1949 during which twin sisters had come into this world surprising everybody, including their parents and the doctor because he heard only one heartbeat, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis of this writer’s book at Amazon.com.
“On a path ordered by God, the twins touched the lives of many in their roles as teachers, attorneys, and judges,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Judge Lloyd’s Your Honor, Your Honor: A Journey Through Grief to Restorative Justice. “The rocky road the twins followed to achieve these professions was God’s way of preparing them for life. In Your Honor, Your Honor, author Judge Leonia J. Lloyd tells the story of this dynamic duo whose professional careers led them to become models, schoolteachers, and entertainment lawyers. Eventually, with their unique moniker, Twins for Justice, they became the first identical-twin district court judges to sit on the same bench at the same time in the country.”
Then suddenly, the unthinkable had subsequently occurred, changing the overall landscape of the life of this Christian-based author.
Focusing on restorative justice, their careers were on a meteoric rise until the unexpected and sudden death of Judge Leona Lloyd put an abrupt halt to their successful lives together, according to a breakdown of Judge Leonia J. Lloyd’s book at Amazon.com.
“Lost and alone, Leonia was in the storm of her life; despair had an iron clad grip around her. She turned to God for guidance and her prayers were answered,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Judge Lloyd’s written work. “Your Honor, Your Honor chronicles her life experiences, including her relationship with her twin, her struggles against racism, her account of the grieving process, and her stride toward justice.”
Moreover, the now-retired Judge Lloyd also shares with her readers the following subjects:
- The mental illness that her mother—Registered Nurse Mattie N. Lloyd—suffered after a brain hemorrhage.
- The commitment that her father—auto body mechanic Leon T. Lloyd Jr.—demonstrated by keeping the family together to raise two successful daughters despite racism, his wife’s multiple personalities and breakdowns, and later, his struggles with alcoholism.
- Situations that showcase her parents’ words of wisdom and actions that taught the girls discipline, perseverance, and determination to triumph over challenges.
- Racial unrest, the 1967 Detroit insurrection, and how wearing an afro drew disapproval from her boss and colleagues at a job during college.
- Examples of people whose lives were transformed by Drug Treatment Court and Project Fresh Start, for persons who practiced the act of prostitution.
- How she led the creation and implementation of Michigan’s second Veteran’s Treatment Court.
- Examples that illustrated how the powerful bond between the twin sisters could not be broken by death and,
- A powerful testament to the power of faith that provided the people, synchronicities, and strength to heal from paralyzing grief and carry on the spirit of her sister by making a positive impact on thousands of people during her tenure on the bench.
When asked in what ways does her new book aligns with the purpose for which God has created her, Judge Lloyd said: “It is another format to use to reach many more people to up lift, especially in these times when it is needed even more.”
To her credit, Judge Lloyd has generated a considerable amount of media exposure since the ceremonious release of Your Honor, Your Honor.
“(I want to inspire) my readers to keep pushing forward and complete their goals,” Judge Lloyd, a Wayne State University graduate, said. “Then (I want them to) get ready to set a new goal attached to even bigger dreams that they can conquer. It is never too late to learn and grow.”
