One thought on “Steve Harvey Morning Show’s Shirley Strawberry Adds ‘Author’ to Her Scorecard

  1. Shirley,

    The Stawberry Letter (your book)is a CAN’T PUT IT DOWN BOOK. I am a 65 year old women and I cried when you talked about your wanting a college degree. For most of my life that was my desire and Shirley I have two degrees. God blessed me to get my first degree at age 51 and my master degree at age 61. You can do this don’t give up! My two older sisters tried to discourage me by saying I was to old and what good are degrees at my age. My younger two sisters from my father’s second family stated that they were so proud of me. You can do this don’t let anyone stop you. Just think of how God has blessed you without this degree. What more blessing will you have with this degree.

    This book says so much to us women and I wish I had, had some of this advise when I was developing into a women. Now I am and older women and your advise to women is a special contribution. I hope all women are listening. I can relate to all the strawberry letters except the one about dating married men. I was the wife on the receiving end of the hurt of the other women. I promise myself I would never give any wife the pain I felt.

    I am happy you wrote this book. Thanks. I got it from the library and now I will go out and by it. I have purchased both of Steve’s book after reading them from the library.

    Be Blessed and Know that God has plans for your life with or without a degree.
