On Sunday, September 17th, US-based Nigerian author Dr. Kehinde Ayoola celebrated the publication of her new book with friends, family, and patrons of the Barnes and Noble at Bowie, Maryland.

Dr. Kehinde A. Ayoola is a dentist and writer. Her new book  Awaken! A Compilation of Scriptures is meant to uplift the reader and offer life lessons through inspiration quotations from scripture.

Here is how she describes the book:

Awaken! A Compilation of Scriptures is an inspired and powerful book that places the scriptural answers to life’s many questions at the fingertips of the reader! The book addresses general topics like love, faith, marriage, peace, joy, abundance, victory, strength, wealth and more but digs deeper using scriptures to address topics that are not commonly discussed in your regular Sunday churches. Essentially, the book is a call to AWAKEN to truth and the freedom and empowerment that comes as a result!

The book launch was well-attended. Dr. Ayoola’s parents, Dr. Ephraim A. Ayoola and Mrs. Grace Ayoola who is a physician and an author respectively, were both at the event. She also shared the night with her fiance, Mr. Olushola Ogundele who is a senior associate at JP Morgan Chase and her twin sister, Dr. Taiye Adedeji, a pharmacist.

Congrats to Dr. Ayoola! We are truly delighted that the event was successful and wish her all the best.
