The Soul of Our Family is a collection of prayers, praises, poems, and other writings written by family members across the United States and abroad but__ it is much more. This book was written to honor the legacy of our ancestors who taught us that prayer is an indispensable tool to reach GOD during periods of praise, as well as difficult times; and for their descendants who are challenged with the everyday systemic and institutional racism, economic, and political strife that is consuming our Country and the World. It is written for future generations so that they too may come to know the power of prayer and meditation in their life, seek out opportunities to grow, and achieve a life of well-being, prosperity, and humanitarian pursuits, as did their ancestors. We offered this book to be used as a template to help others who have a desire to strengthen their family ties. When we strengthen family ties we strengthen communities. Strong communities make a stronger nation. When we strengthen family ties in our country, we strengthen family ties around the globe as we are a country of immigrants, binding mankind together for the common good of all men. Many books have been written about prayers and the family, but few give you a guide to authorship, building a stronger family, and strengthening your family ties. Every family should have a legacy. What will yours be?
