Sometimes life plays tricks on you. And sometimes the master trickster is Jesus. 🎩 That’s the story I want to tell and I’m sooooo excited to join the @flatiron_books family to bring BAMBOOZLED BY JESUS to life! 📚There’s nothing like folks who GET your vision and want to support it! Shout out to my book agent @brandibowles at UTA for working tirelessly to make this happen! #35StartingOffRight #CancelingTheFirstHalfOf2019 #GoneWriting 📝 #WhoWantsToSponsorMyWritingRetreat? #ImThinkinBaliOrThailand 🏖 #TheOceanHelpsMeFocus #LetTheLordUseYou
The “Night School” actress, who isn’t shy about her faith, will incorporate advice from 20 life lessons she’s learned from her own experiences, her family, and from the Bible. Think: part memoir, part-advice column. Just last year, the 35-year-old opened up about how she’s keeping her promise to God to save herself for marriage, and how the wait can be sexy during her TEDx talk.
No release date for the faith-based book has been announced, but getting a copy once it drops should be a priority!
Other than making us believe in love again on Instagram with her beau, former NFL player, Emmanuel Acho, Yvonne is currently developing her own semi-autobiographical series called First Gen, which is about a Nigerian-American family.
Get this coin, Yvonne!
TELL US: Do you think her book will sell out?
