Warrior State of Mind

Warrior State of Mind

Winning the War Within


·    Have you ever thought or even uttered the phrase, “If it ain’t one thing it’s another?”

·    Feel like every time you take one step forward, you’re knocked 2 steps back?

·    Does something always seem to happen that stops you from living your dreams?

·    Do you feel stuck?

·    Have people counted you out? More importantly, have you counted yourself out?

·    Have you been raped, molested, physically or verbally abused?

·    Are you battling a debilitating disease? Are you caring for someone who is sick or elderly?

By now you’re probably nodding your head emphatically and/or screaming YES! 


Warrior State of Mind…Winning the War Within invites you into the author's mind, heart and soul as she battles her own private war within.  Sanjo's previous 5 books have all shared small pieces of herself with the world and encouraged many to empty their lives of all that didn’t serve them in living their best life. This book will help others identify, confront and conquer the silent war that rages inside of most of us. You may not enter the battlefield of the mind with a Warrior State of Mind but you will definitely develop one as you slay your own thoughts and inner obstacles.

I Now Pronounce You Single & Happy  

ISBN-13: 978-0-9776740-9-1


Imagine seeing your unfiltered thoughts on the pages of a book but in a straight, no chaser DC Street Platform...there really is no rating for this; it's so hot we had to make up our own: Rated "        "-RAW, BOLD, FEARLESS & UNINHIBITED; Imagine no more! We have gone where NO book has gone before...


It has been said that "Love is Blind" but I beg to differ, based on personal experience, I can honestly say that the euphoric feeling of falling in love or infatuation can blind you to all the red flags waving above a person's head and before you know it, you are knee deep in a drama-filled relationship that feels like walking through quicksand to get out! Sometimes you have to take a step back to see things clearly and other times you have to walk away completely to regain 20/20 vision.  Allow this book to serve as your eye exam.  Let me forewarn you that this book is NOT for the faint at heart. Those with sensitive ears (or in this case, eyes) or those too religious for any earthly good, STOP RIGHT HERE, DO NOT PASS INTRO!  


Now, I’m not going to lie to you like dudes do to some females when they want it real bad saying, “I’m only gonna put the head in.”  I will truthfully paraphrase a quote from doctors when they say to their patients before giving them a needle to heal them, “This may sting a bit; but it’s only for a minute and you’ll feel much better afterward.”  This is a no holds barred, raw, straight no chaser type of book so strap up…we’re going in; ALL THE WAY IN!

​In this witty and insightful book, Sanjo Jendayi shows you how to go beyond merely existing to dream walking and living God’s purpose for your life. She shares small “pearls of wisdom” on how to release all the anger, fear, complacency and even passivity that’s holding your ideas hostage. 

“Girl, Get Empty” is about persistence, creating a pathway to strive for your dreams and maximize your full potential by allowing God to put HIS plan into action. It is about leaving no ROCK unturned. It is about unselfishly unleashing all that God has placed in you to share with the world. It is about loving oneself. It is about being SIGNIFICANT!

Soaring on the Wings of Poetry

ISBN-13: 978-0-9776740-0-8


Deserie skillfully intertwines the lines of her life into a poetic masterpiece. This book will take you on an emotional rollercoaster where you ll laugh, cry, get angry and rejoice. It s a story of trials, tribulations, triumphs, healing, forgiveness and encouragement.


"Honest, soul searching, proactive and very timely is the poetry of deserie t. johnson. The more she writes and speaks, the more convinced I am that deserie t. johnson was born in the wrong era. With her strong sense of leadership and community service, she should have been a 60's child with a 9 inch afro. Power to the people! And to d.t. johnson!" --Omar Tyree-Author of "What They Want"

"This book could be renamed Testimony of a Disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is revealing, truthful and very liberating. As you soar on the wings of poetry with sister Johnson, be ready to be challenged, changed and inspired by the hard-hitting truths of one of the Lord s disciples." --Patrice & Gina Tsague-Nehemiah Project International Ministries, Inc.

​Come on this poetic journey with me and sail the seas of a hidden history that we all must treasure!! What you are about to read will give you the spark you need to begin your own journey of cultural knowledge if you haven't began already. For those of you who are Moor knowledgeable, each poem will truly resonate within your soul. I am certain you will relate to this poetic journey and we can continue to educate and support our people as we build a more cultured union amongst ourselves. I challenge each person that reads this book to spend time learning about Moorish culture and being open to its traditions, not only is it a part of history but it is hidden for a reason. I don't expect you to agree with everything you are about to read but it is my hope that you choose to seek understanding and do the necessary research before rejecting my truth which I based on our truth.

We as a people today are programmed not to know, so we don't know what to search for when we feel we want to know, therefore we get lost in whatever is presented to us; it is time we take the time to find ourselves.
