New book “Talitha Cumi” by W.M. Brazil is released, an inspirational true story of the journey to God and the transformative power of faith

“Talitha Cumi: Little Girl, I Say to You, Arise!” by W.M. Brazil has been released worldwide. This 136-page work of nonfiction is a powerful, firsthand account of the author’s journey to God and the inspiring path she’s been walking since embracing faith with a full heart. It is a testimony of God’s grace, the enduring love of Jesus Christ, and the life-changing possibilities that come from walking in faith.

Born in segregated Birmingham, Alabama and growing up in a viciously racist society, Brazil felt the burden of this injustice from an early age. Yet through this struggle, she was also raised in a family that instilled the importance of faith and connection to God – a lesson that would remain with the author throughout her life, and become critically important as she strayed from this path on the way into adulthood. Despite several moments that, in hindsight, were God calling her to reconnect, it wasn’t until a transformative spiritual experience awakened something dormant within that Brazil changed the course of her life forever.

Inspired by her moving spiritual encounters, the author surrendered her life to the Lord and became a wholly new version of herself. This new path led her to the seminary, and subsequently, to becoming the first woman pastor at all three churches she served. Following God’s calling, Brazil also served her community as a prison chaplain. Throughout the book, which reads as a combined memoir and Christian devotional, Brazil shares her feelings of purpose, her inspiring acts of ministry, her deep commitment to faith and family, and the myriad ways that God has guided her life for the better. She offers select Bible passages, prayers, and reflections for readers to ponder, and through this account of her own life, shows others what it means to build a meaningful, intimate relationship with God.

A truly powerful story, this book is a hopeful reminder of God’s love and guidance, encouraging readers of all backgrounds to open themselves to moving spiritual experiences and see the miracles happening every day.

Talitha Cumi: Little Girl, I Say to You, Arise! (ISBN: 9781963844009) can be purchased through retailers worldwide, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon. The paperback retails for $14.99, and the ebook retails for $3.99. Review copies and interviews are available upon request.

From the back cover:

Talith Cumi or Little girl, I say to you, Arise! Mark 5:41

“This book is a record of how God transformed my life. I am coming to the end of my journey, and this book is my legacy to the world.” – W.M. Brazil

I am an African American woman, born less than eighty years after the civil war. I entered the workforce a year after the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Life for my family was hard living in a George Wallace and Bull Connor Alabama. But God birthed me into a family who not only knew struggle, but also knew the God who brings us through the struggle. Yet, being born into a family who knew God, was not enough to bring me into relationship with the living God. It took Jesus Christ, the Lord of Life, walking into my life, taking me by the hand and gently saying, Talitha Cumi, which means, Little Girl, I say unto you, Arise! He touched me and made me whole. But that could only happen after I, like the woman with the issue of blood, touched the hem of his garment.

This is my story. This is my song. Praising my Savior, all the day long. Jesus brought heaven and earth together in my life. I would take nothing for the journey. I truly found the pearl of great value.
