ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Author | Motivational Speaker| Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Victim Advocate | Community Health Outreach Worker| Missionary | Visionary|

Robin M. Sample is a new author; however, she is no stranger to writing.  She began journaling at a very young age, which gave birth to her first book, “When I Stopped Being Angry With God”.  She was born and raised in Cambridge, MD, where she currently resides.  She is a two-time college graduate, with an A.A.S Degree in Paralegal Studies from Chesapeake College and a B.A. Degree in Psychology from Washington College.  She is currently employed by For All Seasons, Inc. in the Rape Crisis Center as an Advocate for Victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault. She has also worked as a Victim Advocate and Case Manager for Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence as well as the Caroline Counseling Center as an Addictions Counselor.  Robin believes she was called to serve in each of these employment capacities due to her personal life experiences.  She sees her work as paying it forward.

Robin believes that everything she has gone through was not only about, nor was it only for her, which has led to her strong desire to become a motivational speaker, giving hope to those who have experienced or who are currently experiencing situations such as those that she has overcome.  Robin is committed to paying it forward and if she can save at least one person, than her life has not been in vain.

Robin, Tell us about your book   

My book is a depiction of my life, beginning at the age of five (5) years old, giving examples of the hurt, pain and trauma that I suffered throughout the course of my life and how I dealt with it ineffectively, by blaming God and ultimately becoming angry with Him and turning my back on Him.

How did you come up with idea for this book?

I came up with the idea for this book by compiling journal entries that I had written over the years.  That was the structural idea.  The foundational idea stemmed from my having become an addictions counselor and it was concreted when I became an advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.  It was at that time that I felt a need and desire to share my story with the world in an effort to pay it forward to others who may be experiencing what I have experienced or who have been where I had been.

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

The most difficult of writing my book was going back to the painful places of my past and reliving those moments so that I could tell those stories.

Why do you write?

I write because it is therapeutic.  I find it easier to express my feelings through writing than by verbally expressing them, especially feelings of hurt, pain and/or anger.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

The main things I want readers to learn from my book are that everything that happens to us do not define who we are, we define who we are.  And also that God often times uses us to speak to others and also to bless others, therefore, everything that happens to us during our lifetime is not necessarily for us, but also for others.  Therefore, we have to count everything to joy because even though we may experience some very traumatic experience events throughout the course of our lives, how we react and respond to them and how God blesses us and brings us through them is the witness that someone else needs in order to make it through their storm.

Who are your favorite authors?

My favorite authors are Kimberla Roby Lawson and Steve Harvey.

What book(s) are you reading now?

I just finished reading “Think Like A Success” by Steve Harvey and I also just finished reading “Who Am I When I’m Under the Limelight” by Tasha M. Wilson.  I am not currently reading anything right now.

What books have most influenced your life?

“The Purpose Driven Life” and “Think Like A Success” have influenced my life the most because they have given me the desire to be a better person and go after my goals and dreams.

If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?

I would consider Steve Harvey a mentor because I can relate to him on a lot of levels.  From listening to him on his talk radio show, especially from 6:00am – 6:15am, he talks in detail about his struggles and how God transformed him into the person He is today.  He doesn’t hide the fact that his life has been turbulent along the way or that he has had a lot of setbacks, he celebrates those times and has used them as stepping stools to elevate himself to higher heights and I can totally relate to that mindset.  He is real, he is genuine and he is passionate about paying it forward to others who he sees struggling trying to make something out of their lives and anyway that he can help them, he will, and that is my passion, to do that very same thing.

Any advice to give to aspiring writers?

My advice is, if you have a story to tell, no matter how big or small, tell it; you never know who that story may help.  It just may be the story that turns someone’s life around or brings them into closer relationship with their Higher Power.  More importantly, your story, just may be the one that saves someone’s life!

When I Stopped Being Angry With God

ABOUT THE BOOK

“When I Stopped Being Angry With God,” gives an account of the life experiences of the author, Robin M. Sample, who takes her readers on a very intimate and detailed journey of the highs and lows she faced throughout her life.  Robin, having been a victim of teasing, bullying, rejection, abandonment, domestic violence and sexual assault, spent the majority of her life suffering from low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, lack of self-worth, poor body image and severe depression. Robin was introduced to the church at an early age by her grandmother, Laura, “Bunch”, as she was affectionately called. Although Robin knew who God was and watched her grandmother faithfully serve God in and out of the church, Robin did not adopt the same feelings towards God that her grandmother had.  Because of the pain and trauma that Robin suffered, she began to blame God and often times found herself asking Him why he created her only to have her suffer the way she had.  As years passed by, Robin became increasingly angry with God and refused to attend church or even acknowledge God in her life.     As you read this heartbreaking, yet uplifting account of Robin’s life, you will see how Robin gradually emerge from victim to victorious.  Having overcome alcohol dependence, surviving multiple suicide attempts and escaping a near death experience as a result of a domestic violence situation, she is living proof that every test gives way to a testimony!

21 affirmationsABOUT THE BOOK

21 Affirmations for Forgiveness and Healing is a book comprised of affirmations and scriptures (NLT version) that Author Robin M. Sample has come to rely on to bring her out of some very dark and lonely places over the course of her life. Robin believes that affirmations, prayer, meditation and scriptures are what kept her from giving up, as she has come pretty close to giving up on several occasions, as she so transparently shared in her first book, “When I Stopped Being Angry With God.” Often times, life tosses us some unexpected curve balls that take us off course, causing us to land in unfamiliar and frightening territories. It is during those times that we feel alone, abandoned, scared and uncertain of what to do or where to turn. But when we turn to God during those times, He reminds us that He has been with us all along, watching over us, leading and guiding us, and even carrying us when we get too tired to take another step. When we learn to let go and let God, we can begin to experience the beauty of freedom to live, love, laugh and enjoy life without being held hostage by our past hurts, pain, trauma and resentment. It is Robin’s hope that this book of 21 Affirmations For Forgiveness and Healing will help readers look to God in times of sadness, loneliness, sorrow, hopelessness, helplessness, and even during times of anger and frustration.

    It feels so good to finally be at peace with my past…it was a long time coming but I finally broke free from the shackles that had me bound and those shackles were named ROBIN!! When I realized that my way was no longer working, I surrendered, gave up the fight and turned it all over to God and He turned all of my mess into an awesome message that I pray will help to free others from the shackles that may be preventing them from experiencing the joy, peace and happiness that only God can provide!!
