Charlottesville author instills hope amid life’s challenges


newspaperAuthor Tonika Goode announces the nationwide release of her motivating new book, “Diamonds Don’t Melt.”

In “Diamonds Don’t Melt,” Goode shares her incredible testimony of how God has been with her throughout every trial and tribulation in her life. The author shows that God is true to his word when he said in Isaiah 43:2, “When you a pass through the water, I will be with you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned: the flames will not set you ablaze.”

Her story will show the reader that there is never a legitimate reason to be hopeless, and that if one is still, he or she still has a purpose in life.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher atwww.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.

Goode began her relationship with God at a young age. The author, who is a single mother of one amazing young man who has been through a lot himself, has always kept a positive outlook on life and in dealing with people. She has a heart to always give and assist where is needed and even to the place where she has lost some relationships in the process for lack of balance or wisdom.

Goode, who holds a bachelor’s degree in human services, is currently working on her second book. She wants to one day be able to put her degree to work by continuing to give back and to be a blessing to others.
