Be The Sunshine Interview and Giveaway

About the Book

Book: Be The Sunshine

Author: Sunshine Rodgers

Genre: Christian Nonfiction

Release Date: August 26, 2022

The one difficulty with having the name Sunshine is that people expect me to be…. well, sunshine all the time.

I have learned over time to embrace the Sunshine-ness that is my name. Yes, I may not always be joyful or exuberant all the time, but I have learned that if I rely on my friends, my family, and my faith, I can conquer each day head-on and live every moment with an expectation of goodness.

And that’s what I wanted to share in this book, Be The Sunshine. It’s not a book about how to be happy or seven ways to stay positive. These pages are about being yourself, showing the world your true colors, and being mindful of the moment. These chapters contain personal stories so that we all can experience love and joy for ourselves as well as shining that light on those around us!

So, just follow my voice. When it comes to being the sunshine, well, I know the way!

More from Sunshine

Be The Sunshine is a 5-Part message about spreading love and kindness out into the world.

Part 1 is about Acting in Kindness (how to serve, share peace and offer forgiveness).

Part 2 is about Shouting Goodness (building up the body of Christ and emphasizing Church Unity).

Part 3 is about holding A Fresh Perspective (standing on God’s Promises and focusing on blessing others).

Part 4 is about The Power of Love (loving God, loving your neighbor, loving yourself)

Part 5 answers the question “Why do we not help?” (the excuses we make and the fears we create)

87 Bible verses were used representing 9 different Translations for clarity, easy to understand passages and relatable terminology. I interviewed 6 Christian leaders and mentors who add their personal testimonies to this piece.

Author Interview with Sunshine

If you could invite one person to dinner, who would it be and what would you cook?

Sunshine: Just because I love watching his TV shows and I have such tremendous respect for him… can I invite Chef  Gordon Ramsay to come over for dinner… and let him cook for me??

Does writing energize or exhaust you?

Sunshine: Writing truly energizes me!

Writing is my passion and even though there is a career side to being an Author-Entrepreneur, I never want to view what I do as work.

When I first became published years ago, I told myself that if just one person reads one of my books and is blessed by it, then all the hard work in writing, researching, and publishing was worth it!

Success to me is creating content that inspires and relates to people and encourages them in their faith.

How did writing this book grow you spiritually?

Sunshine: I loved researching scripture to use for my book, Be The Sunshine!

87 Bible verses representing 9 different translations (NLT, MSG, NIV, NKJ, AMP, ESV, CSB, NRSV, and GW) were used for clarity, easy-to-understand passages, and relatable terminology.

I was also inspired by my Literary Contributors: Ileana Reyes, Steven Stein, Ashalee Bingham, Tim Stromer, Marcia Baker, and Jeff Hosfeld. They are all so amazing  as they each shared their testimony and personal stories to add to my  pages.

Share something your readers wouldn’t know about you.

Sunshine: I am a Brand Ambassador to Fashion Boutiques like Elevated Faith Apparel and Amor Clothing Company. I also represent Beauty and Cosmetics like Truly Beauty Skincare and Timeless Organics Skincare. I am paid by Health and Food Companies as I promote their products like BHU Foods and Bare Life.

Favorite quote?

Sunshine: I am going to chose a quote from my book Be The Sunshine.

“I’m trying to be more conscientious towards myself! I need to slow down and celebrate the small milestones in my life instead of hurrying up to complete the next goal on my to-do list. I need to speak up when I am feeling stressed. I need to be calm and patient and kind to myself.”
