Who is LaKeshia?
G reetings, 31-year-old Lakeshia Ramsey is the author of a self-help/motivational book entitled Innocence In The Wind . Born March 21, 1985 in North Carolina, she split her time being raised in Queens, New York and Norfolk, Virginia respectively. Ramsey began writing in her diary at age 7. She felt that if anyone understood her, she and God did. She used to say that God would come in her room at night and read her diary. Ramsey didn’t fully realize her talent as a writer until the age of 14. She would write so that much that she’d feel like something was missing if she didn’t. Innocence In The Wind was inspired by the trials Ramsey experienced after being raped as a child on 3 different occasions.
She was also in an abusive relationship at a young age. Giving honor to God for bringing her through, she wrote the book as a testimony to share with others who may be going through the same things. She wrote for the women who wanted to get out of those situations but didn’t know how. After the completion of a 24-hour fast, Ramsey did a read-through of her book and noticed a part about God ordaining her destiny and ordering her steps. From that, the title came about. Based on real events taken place in her own life, Ramsey calls on her readers to grasp from reading that God is the head of their lives. “Every test we go through in life is a testimony; through all of our mess, there comes a message.
