I’ve review past books by Aleysha Proctor and would have thought Inspired to Move Forward
would have had more meat and substance. The book, an easy read at 82 pages, including notes and promotions, has tons of scripture references.

The short chapters seem as if they were sermons or speeches compiled together. With all this aside, the information is good and a great resource for those looking for, perhaps, a bible study reference.

My wish for Ms. Proctor in the future is to write a meatier book with a little more substance. Scripture reference is always good, but I’d like to see her elaborate on the stories accompanied by the scripture. I want to be inspired to read more of her work as opposed to just by passing the book and picking up my bible. I’ll await her next title. 


  1. Thank you for your review Yolanda.

    "Inspired to Move Forward" is short for many reasons. It addresses a lot of problems and issues that people have today and was meant to help in a lot of areas.

    If a person is really going through some hard times, they may not have the energy or time to read a 300 page book. More than likely, that person needs some information and encouragement right away.

    And picking up your Bible to read is a great thing, but many people don't know where to start. There's a section in the back of "Inspired to Move Forward" called "Where to Find it In the Bible" to help with that.

    And while the book is short, so will your wait for my next title, which will be out this summer/early fall.

    Thanks again!

    Aleysha Proctor

  2. Greetings Aleysha,

    It was so great to have you respond to our post and your review. Often times we get a bit discouraged when we post reviews, blog tours and spotlights on authors and they don't see them or respond. Thanks again for commenting and I await your next title.

    Keep on Writing!
