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)
As far as her fervent rise an author goes, Trina Stroud didn’t merely despise the days of small beginnings.
Consider, for instance, how Stroud had diligently gone about taking the essential steps necessary for delving off into the world of authorship.
As Stroud recalls, her quest for having her first book published began by way of what she appropriately describes as a “book in pieces.”
Extremely small, effective pieces, to put it more precisely.
“I began writing notes about things that were going on in my life after a woman’s church conference,” Stroud told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I had lost my mom and my marriage was not going well, so I would write to clear my mind and express my emotions in the still of the morning or evening.”

According to Stroud, even a few unlikely stumbling blocks didn’t in any way, shape, or form alter her notable objective of becoming a writer.
“Although I was not consistent, I continued to write whenever I went through some challenges in my life,” Stroud explained. “I would write a poem, story, or just journal about the situation, and the words came together in 2014 or 2015. I was struggling financially and did not know what to do.”
It wasn’t long thereafter, though, that Stroud had encountered her authorship venture’s defining moment.
“One night, during my sleep, I dreamt of me speaking to women — a lot of women — and I knew I was supposed to work with women, but fear kept me from pursuing my passion,” she recalls. “So, I continued to write until more information was revealed to me.”
To her credit, Mending My Broken Pieces: My Journey To Wholeness, Stroud’s first written work, had ultimately come to fruition. Much to her delight, it is shaping up to become a massive thing of beauty.
Powered by Joan T Randall Enterprise LLC — which is responsible for publishing this Charlotte-based author’s book — Mending My Broken Pieces: My Journey To Wholeness had recently made its ceremonious release and, to Stroud’s credit, has been as good as advertised.
“I finished writing Mending My Broken Pieces: My Journey To Wholeness in December 2020…during a pandemic, planning a wedding, working full-time, and getting married,” said Stroud, an alumna of Liberty University who commenced to composing her book sometime in 2014.
As expected, the feedback she’s has garnered since the release of her first book has been overwhelmingly favorable as books sales are expected to soar — much sooner than later.
“My family and friends are extremely excited about me being (a published author) because people know me and my story,” Stroud said. “Most also know how kind, considerate, and compassionate I am, and they want to support me. I had a friend of my husband’s state he was going to order several for family members. This friend also indicated a church member wanted to order some for her bible study group.”
Suitably known as “Author Trina San,” Stroud’s rise to becoming a new author comes amid humble beginnings, something she’s aspires to get across to her readers. Amongst the reasons, she acknowledged, is that she can greatly attest to the notion that even in the midst of turmoil and unfavorable circumstances, God can still use His children mightily, according to His divine purpose.
“I want every reader to know that no matter where you came from, what happened to you, or how you feel about yourself, God can restore you,” Stroud says without hesitation. “God can not only restore you, but make you better than you could have ever imagined if you let go of your will to fix, manage, or control the outcome.

Continued Stroud: “Since I was a young adult, I always knew God would use me to help women because I had such a passion for it. This book gave me the ability to reach not one or two women, but hundreds and thousands of women to encourage them to be all that God wants you to be. Mending My Broken Pieces is a result of how God can use a broken child and mold her into a useful woman for His glory.”
Interestingly, other books are on the horizon, Stroud told MHN.

“I am working on a workbook that will accompany the book that can be used for Bible studies, small groups, book clubs, or just individuals who want to grow spiritually and mentally,” Stroud said. “I have been praying about writing one for pre-teen to teenaged girls. To any woman who thinks she is not smart enough, pretty enough, thin enough, have enough money, or think she is too broken to be great, then you don’t know the God Who created you.
“God wants to use you to help someone else to be great because you have just what that other person needs,” Stroud added. “It could be an elder, child, or another woman, but God chose you to do it because you are a Queen. You are a royal nation and extremely special to God. Do not let your future keep you from becoming the you that you’re supposed to be. Your past does not determine your future.”
Especially when you diligently seek Him.
