STACKING the DECK SERIES
Have you ever had thoughts that couldn't be conveyed through your words? Have you ever started writing a text or started to post you something with questions about political correctness, or societal issues only to delete it? The Stacking the Deck Series touches on social issues from the pulpit to the playground. The message is brought in such a way no offense can be taken, unless you’re guilty of the statements in the deck. In an era where following the path of spirituality, morality and being ethical, can sometimes get lost in worldly expectations in our daily struggles, Stacking The Deck Series will deliver to readers a much needed eye-opening reality, which hopefully leads to an open and truthful dialogue about prejudices and stereotypes we’ve all displayed. Delivered with wittiness, humor and raising an eye-brow or two, if you’re mature enough, you’ll be ready to cut the deck, play the hand your dealt and ready to have an honest conversation about how the Deck is Stack.
An Ohio Native, D.C. Constant is an Author, Speaker and Entrepreneur. From an early age, writing has always been a place of therapy, healing and encouragement. Her writing style like her personality, is poignant, candid and witty with an unapologetic transparent sense of humour, which is her writer's trademark that many find honestly refreshing! She constantly dismisses the right and left wing arguments and stands on the middle ground of truth. She’s a happy loner, often misunderstood, (except by her husband, who knows her better than anyone else, except for God) and unlike most Christians, she’s glad God doesn’t grade on a curve! She enjoys life, the Word of God and staying in constant pursuit of Him!
