Words of Inspiration Sister to Sister: So Then I Learned is a collection of inspirational writings and poems about various struggles young women face every day. Tonya White Johnson is writing to all women, but in particular, young women battling with low self-esteem and low self-worth. These young women, who are having emotional trouble, attract the wrong kind of men and feel unloved and unworthy. The author writes from personal experience, acknowledges her inner struggles, and then discusses her eventual triumphs, which introduced her to the most powerful person in the world. Herself!

I was interested in reading Words of Inspiration Sister to Sister: So Then I Learned because of its title and description. I looked forward to some words of wisdom and encouraging thoughts. The book contained some interesting metaphors. The message that you have to love yourself, and you have to train others how to treat you is very good advice. If you allow others to treat you in a certain way, without any consequences, then they will continue to do so. It also contained some profound quotes from third party sources that made me stop and think. I strongly agreed with the message that you have to choose to change your life and you have to do the work to make that change. It won't be accomplished while wallowing in bitterness and self pity. Tonya White Johnson makes some good points and challenges all women to value themselves and demand the best for themselves. A good message for all - not just for women.
