Growing up as a child, Rasheedah Jackson was always exposed to books, magazines, and writing by her mother. Her mother read to her all the time and always took her to the library to get books as well as invested in her own personal book collection. Her mother was also involved in a writing club that she always took Rasheedah to with her.
When she entered high school, Rasheedah’s 9th grade English teacher sparked her interest for writing when she returned a graded assignment and told her she was a great writer and had the potential to be a professional writer. As an adult Rasheedah lost her passion for writing, but the interest returned once she asked people on Facebook if they would read a story about her conversion from Islam to Christianity and the response was phenomenal.
From Pillars To Commandments: My Journey to Conversion will disclose the personal trials and tribulations Rasheedah experienced trying to find her spirituality and most importantly finding a true relationship with God. This book also focuses on her perspective of growing up as a Muslim and converting to Christianity. She also devotes part of her book to discussing the abusive and toxic relationships that made an imprint on her life but also turned her towards God. From Pillars To Commandments: My Journey to Conversion is set to be released in late 2019.
Rasheedah is a native of Jacksonville, Florida but recently moved to Mississippi with her husband. In addition to her day job and writing her book, she also writes for Majority Greek Magazine.
