An American Story: My Family and Yours


A Review of “An American Story: My Family and Yours”


An American Story: My Family and Yours, is not only an American story, but a worldwide story—a story that shares the emotions, fears, experiences and challenges every family in the human race can relate to.  It underlines the idea, that a human problem is a world problem because the world suffers from it in some way—sometimes visible and sometimes invisible.  Humanity shares the same emotions, hardships and successes because it lives in a human vacuum—a vacuum that loves, hates, forgives, suffers and dies.  Families work together and families work against each other, but when faith and love conquer thought, they forgive each other and move on.

My family, is only a representation of your family, and collectively, we are a microcosm of the world family.  This is why you can and will relate to this book.  The author’s pain becomes your pain, and her joy makes your heart overflow.  You will see faith, courage and inner peace lived because it identifies with your faith and courage.  As you read, her family will be replaced by your own personal experiences with your family.

Whatever emotions this book generates, sad or happy, success or failure, it will lift the veil from your eyes, and the light that fills your thoughts will make you say, “I’m better because I read this book …”  So … jump on board and take the ride with her.  The journey is worth it!

The author, Dr. Mamie Smith tells a story that must be told.  It cuts across racial and ethnic lines and says, “This is the way it was or is!”

This book challenges the inner thought.  If you are a surface thinker… you will not like this book.  If you refuse to face reality…you will not like this book.  If you are hiding behind “The past is the past!” you will not like this book.  However, if you are willing to delve beneath the mask you have placed on your consciousness, you will not only enjoy this message, you will grow with it, expound on it and maybe write a book of your own.

Stay tuned…

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalms 46:10).


Most of us have read this verse numerous times, but what does it mean . . . spiritually mean?  Answering that question depends on the level of spiritual understanding the individual has that supplies the answer, and the responses can be immensely different.


At the rudimentary level, it could mean to cease moving your body from place to place, sit down, and say, “Yea, there’s a God, and no nation on earth equals Him.”


Spiritual growth may produce an answer that follows this train of thought:

Find a quiet place where you can be alone, sit in a comfortable position and stare into space.  Tell yourself, “In spite of what is going on in my life, I know God can help me.  He is more powerful than the “stuff” I’m going through, and He is right here in the room with me.  In fact, He’s everywhere–in every nation!”


Spiritual understanding at one’s highest level of thinking, gives a more spiritual response, admonishing the person to:


Mentally work to expel from consciousness, every thought that does not align itself with God.  Seek to remove the tiniest evasion of divine Love, recognizing that “stillness” has nothing to do with physical movement or human level thinking, but expresses only pure thoughts containing the substance of Spirit.  Know that God is Life, Truth and Love, and because He is so, no evil, disease or death can penetrate or claim a minute space anywhere in your consciousness.  God is supreme, possessing all power, all knowledge and all existence.

Acknowledge His exaltation in the minds of everyone He created, irrespective of race, color, creed or nationality.  Each person has the “mind that was in Christ Jesus,” because he is made in the “image and likeness of God.”  That likeness is never human, but divine, never evil, but good, and never material, but spiritual.

Reaching heaven—spiritual harmony, as well as spiritual earth—spiritual ideas coming from God, I can demonstrate that now!  To exalt God, is an affirmation of man’s exaltation, because man is a likeness of God.  This knowledge and understanding will bring about healing—a rising above the infirmities and iniquities trying to separate me from God.

The medicine of divine Mind heals, is not weak, is ever powerful and effective! Not believing it this. . . is the problem.


David Watkins . . . Publisher & Author of Children Books

Detroit bred Author and Publisher David Watkins chats with Talk Show Host Dr. Image result for Images of Author David WatkinsMamie Smith on “Talk to the Author” at 5 pm on Sunday, May 21, 2017 @ about his passion for reading, the books he has written, and the stories he has published by other authors.   “Reading,” says David, “Allows one to travel to countries throughout the world,” and  I might add, without leaving the comfort of his favorite easy chair.

Traveling across the country, Watkins talks with children about the importance of reading, as well as delivering messages that aid them in making positive life choices through his books–books such as Benny and the Basketball Bully, Which Letter is Better? and The Twelve Dancing Princesses.  

Benny and the Basketball Bully by [Watkins, David L.]


In Benny and the Basketball Bully, an “11-year-old boy learns the strength of his value when he is challenged by an older child.”  Bullying has reached “epidemic nature” across America, and all children need to understand the destructive impact it has on society.  Walk over to and grab a copy for your child!

What values are we teaching our children?  What positive role models stare at them from the TV screen?   Have honesty, integrity and “telling the truth”  become obsolete in the conscious of America?  Which Letter is Better? (The ABC Series Book 2) by [Watkins, David L.]

Tune-in to at 5 pm on May 21, 2017 and find some of these questions answered.
