Avis P. Raines was born in Miami, Florida. As a little girl she was always humble and respectful to all. That humbleness and respect stayed with her as she got older.
Avis first became interested in entertaining when she entered high school, joining the dance team, drama and chorus.
After high school Avis furthered her career by receiving her Child Development Associate certification. While working in child development she felt that there was something missing. So began writing songs and arranging them.
What do you know; as luck would have it she got a call about joining a local singing group. She jumped at the chance without a second thought. Not only does she have the gift of writing, but she also has a beautiful voice. Entertaining was just in her.
They were featured on local artists albums and had the opportunity to travel. She got a chance to meet people and do wonderful things that she would not have otherwise gotten the chance to do.
Three years later Avis decided to leave the group. A year after got married and that didn't work out. During that time she lost her Mom. That was a devastating loss for her; considering how she loves her family. Her Mom was her world.
So Avis turned to the Father for guidance, wisdom, strength, love and support, as well as her family and friends. She knew that her life would not be the same without her Mom. She converted to writing. The best way for her to express herself. The only way she knew to let go of the hurt, anger and pain that she was enduring. That was her inspiration for this book.
So remember to live every second, embrace every minute, enjoy every hour and thank Him for everyday.
