Messages From My Sister: God Is Our Source and Supplier Paperback – May 6, 2017

On October 5th, 2005, Gydia 'Sunshine' Haynes passed away at the age of 43. Gydia was the sister of Rita King (daughter of blues legend, B.B. King). This book, written by Rita, provides a tangible memory of a collection of messages, letters, and emails from Sunshine, juxtaposed with selected passages from the Bible that gave Rita comfort during her time of extreme sadness and grief.
At first glance, Messages from My Sister appears to be just that, a very personal book that details correspondence between two sisters. However, upon reading it carefully, it soon reveals itself to be a reminder of how faith plays an important part of everyday life.
In my opinion, Rita King has been extremely brave to write and publish this most unique book. It is deeply personal and yet widely accessible to anyone who needs encouragement and motivation. I'm glad that I read it.
Richard Wall, author of Fat Man Blues.
A wonderfully warm and sincere relationship between two sisters. This book is a great interpretation of sister bonding offering comprehensive and motivational suggestions for everyday living. After reading the story line, I have a better appreciation for my siblings. A must read.
William Peele, Jr., CEO 40 Days and 40 Nights Music Publishing, Former Editor-in-Chief of Cash Box Trade Music Publication.
Rita shares a very heartfelt experience with the reader, all whilst sprinkling elements of The Word. Her relationship to the holidays, family, and her accomplishments drew me into the story. I will recommend this book to my peers. Congratulations. I wish you the very best! Warmest Regards.
Dale R. Stephens, Scientist.
As soon as I read this book, I started to cry. I enjoyed every line. I am going to make a copy of those emergency numbers. Put them on a string, put them around my neck or waist, so they are not far away from me and close at all times. Rita's book is a heavy blessing to a lot of Folk. A lot need to read it.
Ann Ward (Rita's California mother).
