Ayanna Banks thought her job resignation was to allow God's purpose for her to be unveiled. However, she later learned that leaving her job was the start of preparation for the storm she was to navigate. Her personal testimony, reflected in her new book, Killing Me Softly, reveals her walking in love to discover the plan God established for her life. Suffering severe depression due to job problems, Ayanna also experienced spiritual warfare from loved ones and co-workers, and was left standing at a crossroads. She cried out to God to "kill her flesh", causing her dying to flesh and sacrificing her old life to embrace Christ fully. Only then did she begin to accept God's promptings to love Him and others, as God prepared her for her assignment. Speaking God's Word on her situations, Ayanna learned becoming a new creation was only the beginning of her new, eternal life.
