Jekalyn Carr is the definition of Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” She has come a long way from the preteen who released an EP in 2010 and her debut album in 2013 with the chart topping single “Greater Is Coming.”This dynamic young woman of God has just released her fourth album titled One Nation Under God. Not only has she released a new music project, but she also released a book, “You Will Win.”
Her ministry has been able to reach those young and old, rich or poor and black or white. The inspiration behind her album title was for the children of God to celebrate being one nation under God whether they are American, Australian, Chinese or African. The blood of Jesus is what connects us as one nation under God and she believes unity is what is needed. When asked if she has a favorite song on the album she responded stating that she enjoys the entire project but her favorite song is “Stay With Me.” She doesn’t just want God on her journey to win, but she needs him in her life because she needs his grace, protection and love. Who doesn’t want those things?! Take some time to listen to the single, Jekalyn shares a testimony of inspiration for writing the song just before singing it.
You may ask yourself, what can a young woman on the brink of turning 21 say to you about winning that she could write a book about it. Jekalyn has sacrificed, remained steadfast and has had seasons arise in her life where she has learned to hold on to God. When asked if she was given the chance to choose to make sacrifices over again or not Jekalyn responded stating, “God had my life planned out and I thought why not. I believe there is a reason why God allowed for me to be able to start that young and I see the results today.”
She is sharing those testimonies through her book. It took her close to four years to write it and complete the publishing process but the process was worth it. She wants people to understand who God created them to be. The heavenly bloodline brings victory in every area from finances, health and more. She shares testimonies of her own and testimonies of others such as Kathy Hughes and Oprah Winfrey.
Jekalyn shared that there are so many successful and victorious people in the world that people think they know everything about but reality is most people don’t know what those successful individuals had to go through to get to the success. “Everyone has a story,” said Jekalyn. In this book she shares those stories as lessons towards victory/success.
When asked if there was a particular section of the book she wants readers to pay attention to more than others she responded that the entire book is great, but favorite chapters in the book are “Patience to Win” and “Structures to Win.” In these chapters she shares that when you are working on what God has given you to do he will sometimes allow for low or slow moments to occur in your life so he can pour into you the things that you need to develop before he gets you to the winning season in your life. You must have patience enough to wait on God. While it sounds like a cliche` it’s a very difficult task for so many people to wait. Jekalyn shows you how to think to win and focus on God to receive your victory.
Testimonies from fans have already begun to show up in her communication outlets. Fans who are young, middle-aged and elderly have been telling her how the book and album has encouraged them.
