“Girl!! I just finished the book today! First off, thank you for your obedience because that was definitely God sent! You said things that I’ve felt, thought, or have had revelations around, and I’ve just not talked about it much because most people just don’t know what to do with this conversation! I was also afraid of being judged for it in the past, and I still deal with some of that today. This was a great read that was filled with love, understanding and compassion! Thank you for starting this much needed and long overdue conversation! So many of us are trapped by our perceptions and our experiences, and that is not what God intended! So many of us live a life of bondage that the world wants no parts of! What you shared in this book was truly a reflection of the love of Christ! Blessings to you!” – Bonita
This book is very inspiring, as it has given a clear view of how easy it is to hide your true feelings due to shame or being embarrassed not knowing how to truly live or talk to God. Awesome book everyone should read this and take a good look a yourself. – Anonymous

Shonuff The Truth!
“I finished your book a couple of days ago and it is shonuff the truth! I am ecstatic that you listened to God, was sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s leading, Obeyed God and Wrote the book! Thank you for sharing it with the world. I think you are a beautiful, talented and ultra amazing young woman. That’s why I try to support you every chance I get. Your book reminded of who I am and who’s I am. People need this book! Someone asked to borrow mine but I’m not cause they won’t give it back! I need to order another one!!” – Lynette
Having read your book, I would have to say it was very inspirational. The manner in which you presented your experience of being a child/teenager/adult trying to find your personal relationship with God was to be commended. Your desire to share this with others to allow them to face their insecurities and be honest with themselves is awesome, as most people find it hard to express themselves. Thank you and may you continue to allow God to lead you in your future endeavors. – Elvina
“I love “The Mask”. What a great perspective and insight on something that is so common. Perfect read!” – Anthony
I wore the mask
“This book was so on point, I was raised the same and in the same Church and baby I wore so many masks when I was hurting or going through so much I would just smile and say Im blessed when everything in me was saying the opposite. This book is just Awesome I believe that through Gods word and acceptance of my own truth I am able to remove the masks and be transparent. Thank you for this Andriea its about time someone spoke on this in this way.” – Linda
The Mask: Recognizing And Resisting Spiritual Deception
A Spiritual Autobiography
Have You Or A Loved One Been Hurt By Someone In The Church?
The Mask book demonstrates exactly what happens when one is handed doctrine, tradition, and opinion all wrapped up in one message and left to sort it all out on her own.
Why do so many Christians fake it? Why have so many people been hurt within the church? In this short, spiritual book I answer these questions in detail, I get deep down into the truth about the Christian church, and I share my soul-stirring story about growing up in church, confused, misinformed, and headed for destruction. Many people are criticized for speaking up about their experiences of church hurt, but instead of cowering, I am standing firmly in my truth. I'm not just ranting emptily, though. I'm offering a look at both sides, an explanation, and a solution to the problem.
