Overview

Shashicka Tyre-Hill's life didn't begin in the best of circumstances. When she was four, her parents separated, and her life changed for the worse. Seeing her mother abused physically, affected Shashicka mentally. It was a hard time in her life as her mother worked two jobs, leaving Shashicka with the responsibility of caring for herself and her two brothers. At fourteen her life changed again when she became pregnant, and then dropped out of school so that she could take care of her daughter. By the time she was fifteen, she was living on her own.

Though the road was filled with bumps, Shashicka was determined to defy the odds. She knew God had a greater purpose for her life and she never gave up. She had many jobs, but it wasn't until she took care of her ailing grandmother that she finally found her passion. She took seven hundred dollars and turned her compassion for helping those who couldn't help themselves into a multi-million dollar Home Health Care business.

Blessing and Miracles is a moving story of a young girl's enduring will not to repeat the mistakes of the past, and to succeed against all odds. It is a must-read for anyone who has ever thought to themselves, "My life has got to be better than this."

    Shashicka is an exceptional young lady who has defied the odds


    Shashicka is an exceptional young lady who has defied the odds that were stacked up against her. Early on as a child Shashicka had to endure the torture of seeing her mother constantly abused by the men in her mother’s life. Shashicka was forced in the role of taking care of her two small brothers while her mother carried multiple jobs just to make ends meet. Drugs and crime were prominent in her surroundings but Shashicka was determined to make something of her life. She didn’t want to live the life that her mother and grandmother had lived. Being a young teenager with two children, Shashicka had to assume the role of a working adult prematurely. Life was no walk in the park for her. But she was able to see the light through the adversity and break the cycle. Shashicka tells a riveting story of her rise from poverty to running a multimillion dollar company by following her dreams and never giving up when faced with obstacles. The story of her life is inspirational and captivating. It’s amazing to see a soul go through so much trials and tribulations and end up as a successful business woman who is giving back to the world. Shashicka does an excellent job conveying her thoughts and life lessons in this book. She clearly illustrates the steps that played a key role to her excelling in life. Blessing and Miracles is a memoir that should be read by anyone who needs motivation to do something positive with their lives.





    The writing style in the book was spot on. It was very smooth and fluid. Dialogue was inserted properly throughout the book. She knew when to give the reader more conversations when needed amongst descriptions. With a memoir I know this is difficult to do, especially when you are reflecting on conversations that took place years ago, but the writing in the book bridged the timeline gap efficiently. Reading the conversations from the past seemed authentic and real.





    One of the things that I appreciated about this memoir is the truthfulness and unfiltered accounts of her actions, especially in the beginning. Shashicka was initially surrounded by individuals who may not have had her best interests at heart and had taken advantage of her. She had no problem illustrating the wrongs that she had done during her life’s journey. Some people, even in a memoir, would have either omitted or sugarcoated some less appealing moments in their lives. Shashicka was brave in telling her story as it actually played out and the reader can really appreciate it.





    Even with all the negative things that were going on in Shashicka’s life, she was able to still insert some humor in her story. It takes a clever writer to know when humor is appropriate and Shashicka handled it pretty well.





    It’s very difficult to find any criticism in this book because I fell in love with her story from the beginning. Shashicka did everything right with this memoir. She offered the reader a truthful glimpse into her life and I couldn’t ask more from a person sharing their life with us. Her story is extremely inspirational and I’m more than happy that I came across her book. There are many life lessons that I will take with me from reading her story.
