Budding Writers Succeed in Being Published
15th March 2019
Last Thursday 7 March was World Book Day. The emphasis each year is always on getting more people to read and appreciate a variety of book genres. It's also a platform to encourage writers to express themselves in print. Two people within the British Union Conference rose to this challenge.
One such person is Janelle Pamphile who shares a message of courage, hope and perseverance to help others find the strength to never give up. Her book is entitled Pain Passes but the Beauty Remains Forever. Janelle's childhood was not ideal. Her father was an alcoholic, and as in many families of an alcoholic this unfortunately led to domestic abuse, so she knows intimately the devastating effect this can have. Now she does her part to bring awareness to these issues, and to help those in need.
"Too few people talk about domestic abuse and honour-based violence. With two women dying every week in the UK due to domestic violence, and an estimated 2.1 million men and women suffering domestic abuse in the UK, these statistics should be a more prominent topic in society," say Janelle.
Janelle courageously uses her father's 'mess' as a message to help others and is of the belief that people can go through painful experiences in their lives and still find the strength to transform their lives to help others. She has been invited to speak at parliament and was part of a prison ministry at her church, a means of encouraging inmates to also see that this does not have to be the end of their story.
Today she is 'the people's champion' in her community of Harlesden and supports families affected by addiction and domestic violence where she is well known and respected. Janelle is proof that you don't have to allow adversity to hold you down in life, you have a fascinating and inspiring destiny awaiting you.
