About the Book

Is Mr. Right…Really Right? Some women are caught off guard when they finally find out Mr. Right isn’t so right after all. By then, their heart, mind, and body are already ensnared by an unhealthy relationship.
Relationships are what keep us all connected. Every woman wants a man of her own whether she wants to admit to it or not. We all have an innate desire to love and be loved. However, there are some relationships we should never entertain. Every man that comes into your life doesn’t necessarily deserve access to your heart.
This book is filled with sister wisdom that brings awareness to healthy and unhealthy relations, exposing unhealthy characteristics in men and pointers on helping you become the woman God intended for you to be.

I recommend Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! by Stephanie L. McKenny to any woman who has been broken and is looking to heal and discover or rediscover her self-worth.

I also recommend this book to any man or woman who has a daughter, sister, niece, granddaughter or any other female in their lives that range from ages 9-years-old to 25-years-old. Although this book is for any woman of any age, statistic shows that our young girls are falling prey to the forces of domestic violence and abuse.

Each chapter of Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! is reinforced by Pearls of Wisdom and affirmed with scripture.

Ms. McKenny uses pearls and their richness and value as an analogy of how women should view themselves, as this is how they are viewed by God.

I enjoyed this book and will be purchasing a copy for each of the young women in my life. I would venture to challenge men, especially young men, to read this book too. Many you men, don’t have positive examples of how to treat women, this book can explain to them how women are to be treated.

Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! re-sparked my desire to mentor young women. I can’t wait to read Ms. McKenny’s next inspirational title.

  1. Stephanie,

    Thank you for stopping by The Author's Hideaway! I have to say, I enjoyed Clutch Your Pearls, Girl! I plan to purchase the book for every young woman in my life. Every young daughter, granddaughter, niece or what have you should read this book. I'm 41 and happily married and even I got something from the book.

    Can you tell us what your inspiration was for the book?

  2. Thank you for hosting the Clutch Your Pearls, Girl Blog Tour with Stephanie McKenny.

    Have a Blessed Week!


  3. I love the way you change your blog to reflect the month. Very cool!

  4. Thank you Ty for choosing to stop by. I'm working on getting my readership up with marketing campaigns, etc. Thank you for the compliment on the website. That means a lot coming from Miss Creativity herself!

  5. Yolanda, as I mentioned to you before on Facebook, thank you so much for your review and for hosting my blog tour. Your review was very encouraging and it let me know that I was on the right track.
    I was inspired to write the book because like me and many other women all over the world were getting involved in unhealthy relationships and I wanted to write something that would expose it and challenge them to recognize their worth. After reading Matthew 7:6, the inspiration was conceived and the words began to flow from God and my heart onto the pages. Thanks again and please tell them all to get a book.

  6. I just received this title to review and I am excited. I have heard such a positive feedback about the book that I am anxious to get started. Congrats! Stephanie.
