The Caribbean Family: Examining Family Diversity in The Caribbean

The family is the genesis of all societies. It is our most basic economic, political, and social unit. It is within the family unit that individuals first learn the value of work and the worth of their possessions. It is within the family that individuals first experience authority, cooperation, and governance. The Family Families teach … Continue reading The Caribbean Family: Examining Family Diversity in The Caribbean

Fibroids: The Alien Assassins in My Body by Denise N Fyffe

Fibroids Testimonial: What are they and Where are they? by Denise N. Fyffe

When females hear the word fibroids, other concepts such as cancer, pain, barren and agony comes to mind. For generations black women have been suffering more from this disease than any other women, in any other racial group. It has been surmised that one in four women have fibroids and generally it is found in … Continue reading Fibroids Testimonial: What are they and Where are they? by Denise N. Fyffe

How does Education and Gender impact on work?

Feature on The Jamaican Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Author Denise N. Fyffe

Introduction It should be made particularly apparent that there is no separate distinction between the roles and responsibilities of a school counsellor. Seemingly, no understandable approach was identified to distinguish or separate what are roles, versus, what are responsibilities. What can be said however is that responsibilities are dependent on the type of role that … Continue reading Feature on The Jamaican Guidance Counsellor’s Handbook by Author Denise N. Fyffe

Why I Write by Author Denise N. Fyffe

I watched a video by renowned author J.K. Rowling, and I believe that she gets what many authors, like myself, are going through.

She was speaking the Harvard University Commencement and her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through.

To have that similarity and to hear my thoughts from someone else is a great motivator. As such, it inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.

Then I began thinking, searching …

Over the last month, I have come to the full realization and acceptance that I am different. I cannot sit idly by, because I have been given a gift; and I won’t waste it. Every bit of information, research – everything – God has put in this head will benefit someone else.

I am going to write about it.

When I reached 25 books, my next goal was 30. But, I conquered 30 books so easily, my next target was 100 books by 2018. However, I took a one-year sabbatical. That one year turned into three. I needed to recalibrate and analyze my motives, my messages, my purpose.

So, calibration is in session.

I want to encourage someone else, to never settle for mediocrity. And remember, only you know what that level is. If you are given a gift to aim HIGH and THINK BIG, then do so.

There are many things that I can do – many abilities, talents, skills, and interests. I get bored easily; therefore, it is not in my genes to settle for just writing one book a year or writing for writing sake. Neither should you – as a writer – settle for this idle.

I encourage you, stop, think and reassess your life. It might be what you need to level you up for greatness.

I just watched a video by famously renowned author JK Rowling, and I believe that she gets what many authors like myself are going through.

Her speech was about failure and I could tell that she lived exactly what I am now going through. To have that  similarity is a great motivator. As such, it has inspired me to share 30 posts about the 30 books, which I have published.

I say published, because I have written nearly twice as many, and they are sitting on my hard drive gathering virtual dust.

Over the last month, I have come to the full realisation that I am different. I am called to a higher place than others. I cannot sit idly by and watch my life go by, because I have been given a gift; and I wont waste it.

Fibroids Testimonial; Disrupting my Exercise Routine by Denise N. Fyffe

You mean that's a fibroid? If I had known it was the darn fibroids sabotaging my workout all these years, I would have quit the ab workouts years ago. For almost a decade I have been trying to get rid of my tummy, to no avail. Now, in 2014, I am being made aware that my largest fibroid … Continue reading Fibroids Testimonial; Disrupting my Exercise Routine by Denise N. Fyffe
