Table of Contents and Introduction

This is a book for and about women -- women who are struggling to discover:

  • Who we are
  • What God has designed and desired us to be
  • How to pursue that dream of divine destiny

Rev. Dr. Cynthia L. Hale has written out of her own experience of struggle in order to help other women realize and celebrate our uniqueness, acknowledge without shame our issues and challenges, and receive healing and forgiveness. I'm a Piece of Work! Sisters Shaped by God features poetry, reflections, and Scripture, taking women on a journey from brokenness to wholeness. It is a book designed to help women affirm themselves and to claim God's best.


Excerpt from the Prologue:

"Enough is enough! There comes a time when we realize that others cannot define us because who we are is much more than they could ever imagine.... No one has the right to define us but God. After all, God designed us.... Yes, we are a piece of work -- created in the image of the Most High God."

Editorial Reviews:

“Yesterday, I recited from this book the "Who Are We?" poem at a brunch in front of a group of highly successful women I had never met. The words, written by Dr. Hale, gave me the confidence to stand up and read loudly with passion in front of the room. After the wonderful applause, everyone wanted to know more about the author and this book. It was a great way to introduce myself and spark interesting conversations. I'm most impressed with Dr. Hale's transparency about her insecurities, mistakes and disappointments. With references to biblical scriptures, this book offers practical advice on how to see yourself through God's eyes, to embrace His vision of the real you, celebrate your uniqueness, forgive yourself, renew, forgive others, dream and pursue perfection. What a joy and how encouraging it was to read this book! I highly recommend it for all women - married, single, young and old.” —Venus Bivens (as reviewed on Amazon.com)

“Rev. Hale got all up in my face and told me about myself in this book. This book has truly been a blessing to me. I like that she opened up and made herself transparent. This book is a must have, especially if you are trying to find yourself, you are a single woman and you need healing. I can't say enough about this book. I will be Blessing my friends with a copy of this. Thank you for this Blessing! I want to be a 'Kept Woman' (page 25). It's time!”—Latasha Mitchell (as reviewed on Amazon.com)

"I just finished I'm A Piece of Work by Dr. Cynthia Hale - FANTASTIC! It really spoke to my heart and she was so transparent with her own life. I've recommended the book to some friends and hope to purchase some copies to give away. I think you'll learn something from it, man or women, and be better able to face the person in the mirror you see each day." —J. Brown, Atlanta, GA

"This is a wonderful book for women who are seeking wholeness and looking for identity.  The author writes in a soothing manner that will inspired, encourage, and remind you to run the race in such a way that you come out a winner in all areas of life.  I highly recommend it." —Reviewed by Kathy B. for Reading Room
