LaGrange author to present newest book at Colonial Hotel this April

Published 7:40 am Tuesday, March 22, 2022

As the month of March ushers in Women’s History Month, Columbus-based author Denise Mosley will release her third book, “GET UP, a book of affirmations, prayers, meditations and proclamations,” for the reader who may need a boost in self-esteem and a more positive outlook on life. The Official Book Launch Social Event will be held on April 3, 2022, at 4 p.m. at the historic Colonial Hotel at 119 Ridley Ave.

The event will feature the author signing books for those who pick up a copy, a review of the book and a giveaway from a drawing for readers who purchased the book early.

“One of the reasons that it is so important to promote a positive overview of oneself, mental health wellness and strong personal faith; is that despite our many efforts, platforms and resources- there is still much work to be done.” Mosley said in a press release.

“Many people aren’t exposed to mental health issues until they are directly impacted by a tragedy in their families…or suffer some level of mental break themselves…anxiety, depression, low self esteem, toxic environments… which causes them to stop moving. The list of reasons to stop, sit down and quit are endless; but there are so many reasons and resources presented to us to tell us we can overcome the obstacles in front of us. Oh yes, you can keep going; in fact you can do more than just keep going but you can live a prosperous, successful, fulfilled and meaningful life.”

The release of GET UP! And Live is a part of an effort to promote a more positive, proactive approach to addressing mental awareness and wellness and how important it is for us to take a break, a step back, a breath, Mosley said. It is also a push to promote learning to speak over ones self, to see ourselves the way we should, affirm ourselves continually and positively no matter what- even if no one else does.

GET UP! And Live is a 30-day book of Affirmations, prayers and meditations to help the reader push past anything that may have knocked them down or put them on the sidelines of life, the press release said.

“It is a go-to resource that can be picked up again and again until the reader can see themselves as they should; alive, thriving, and strong,” Mosley said. 

Mosley currently serves as a Photojournalist and Morning Show Editor for a local ABC network in Columbus. She and her husband Kelvin; also own a small photography business and a small real estate business.
