Featured Interview With Akera Franklyn
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in the beautiful garden parish of St. Ann on the island of Jamaica but left as a teenager for the parish of St. Catherine where I now live. I had pets growing up, specifically dogs but not able to house any now. I hope to get a dog not too long from now, or a mini aquarium with fish.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I loved reading since I was a child and remember visiting the library bus from about age 10 whenever it came to my primary school. Around that time, I would often write in journals and would make up stories some of which were a means of escaping.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I am particularly fond of the late Dr. Myles Munroe and his focus on the Kingdom agenda and how we are expected to bring God’s Kingdom to earth.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Many of us have experienced hurt, rejection, depression, and even found ourselves seeking love in all the wrong places. You might have even gotten introduced to Jesus Christ at a young age as I did, but something was still missing. In the search for purpose and true fulfillment, I discovered so much more to Christianity than rituals. I found out that purpose and true fulfillment are found in an authentic, intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. When you decide to embrace true intimacy with Him, your life will never be the same.
Maybe you feel shattered and broken now but, I promise you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Revelation 12:11 tells us: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and when you make yourself available to use your mess for a message, you’ll be able to inspire others.
Baptized & Broken: Finding Identity and True Love shares my testimony along with biblical principles to overcoming rejection, depression, and religion to walking in your true kingdom identity, authority, power, and love.
