JOY COMES IN THE MORNING: Accomplished Washington D.C. author Dr. Vernessa Blackwell composes her 20th book — and counting


For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5 NKJV)


JOYFUL SEASON 

JOY OF THE LORD — A native of Roxboro, North Carolina, Dr. Vernessa Blackwell is the mastermind behind Joy Comes In The Morning, her highly-anticipated anthology that is comprised of 90 co-authors and will officially debut in June 2022.

For Dr. Vernessa Blackwell, losing her sister to an untimely death was virtually difficult to stomach.

“I was struggling with her loss and praying for strength,” Dr. Blackwell, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling her sister’s passing in 2014. “At first, I was more comfortable sharing it with in small groups and workshops.”
Consequently, once Dr. Blackwell commenced to opening up more about her sister’s demise, the accomplished Washington, DC author deemed it essential to disclose memories of her beloved sibling in books, most notably by way of spiritually-empowering, life-enhancing devotionals.
