Judith Okech

Biography

I am a self-driven personality who does any work I lay my hands on to satisfaction. A passionate Christian who focuses on the in-depth meaning of God’s words of prosperity in Jeremiah 29:11(I alone know the plans I have for you, plans to bring you prosperity and not disaster, plans to bring about the future you hope for).
Throughout the sixteen years, I was in employment; my desire to give often flickered in my mind. Inspired by the diverse unfathomable events of human life, I began to write my first Christian book in late 2016 after several successful mentor-ships. I display my books with confidence that the readers will experience profitable changes in their lives.

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
First of all, I have to say my books are non-fiction based on real-life experiences and more inclined to problem-solving.

However, the process of writing them differs in that each book is born from its own inspiration! So you would not find the same format running from one book to another. Every day is a new beginning. My conscience guides me, and, before I complete a book, the next is usually in the offing.

I aim at uprooting the problem right from the roots. If you cut a tree from the stem, it will still grow. You cannot climb a ladder from the middle; how will you get there in the first place? You have to start from the bottom!

My notebook never leaves my pocket, and when I sleep, it sits on my lampstand. In my writing journey, I found out that the moment something skips my mind, it rarely returns. So anywhere anytime is jotting time. I then rearrange the topics on a draft depending on how I want to put them down, and then my work begins! Some content may sneak into my mind during the writing process though.

Sometimes I may have a book title that requires research. I must admit this is the most difficult experience I have ever had. Talking to people, most of whom are elderly, way over forty years to divulge information they hold so dearly is a task. One may wonder why I focus on this age group! They have gone through the ups and downs of life and have settled. In a few occasions, I get snubbed, but I appreciate what I get; I believe that is what I was meant to receive!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes! I remember pretty well the first story I ever wrote. It is a story I wrote after a painful moment that took me quite some time to get over. The hard fact is that I was all alone at it! I sobbed in my loneliness, but I could get devastated day after day. Going into the depression, I only heard about on social media was becoming a reality.

I tried to seek solace from a few friends, but they did not help much. Well, I have to admit that it grew me up a little bit! You never know how harsh the world acts, until you find yourself in need of some help. I felt rejected!

Somehow, as we all know, God works in His ways, I found myself down on my knees. The tag of war began; “should I pray, should I not?” In my conscience, I needed an immediate answer. I found out I was dreaming; my desire was an impossibility. So I had to step back and adopt some patience.

To be sincere, it was not easy to concentrate on prayer; so I could not even pray on my own, I relied on written prayers like our Lord ’s Prayer, among others because my mind was wandering around looking for solutions to my problem. Slowly by slowly, I started letting loose the pains. The moment I got a breakthrough, I looked back and realized people are suffering out there to the extent of going into depression or opting to take their lives away!

Three years down the line, the necessity to help free others from such hurts dawned on me. I wrote my first script though at a snail’s pace knowing that even this second, someone somewhere is still undergoing the same pain. The constant reminder of my predicament is one of my prayer points on a daily basis. Not that I have noted it down somewhere; a mention of it is a must, for those who are carrying the same burden. I tend to think God wanted me to pray for such souls.

I thank the Lord for giving me an opportunity to save someone’s life through my write-up.
