Xulon Author Recounts Sixteen-Year-Long Journey of Faith

Carmen L. Blackmon Pens Story of Confidence in God's Ways


MAITLAND, FL— Within the pages of Carmen L. Blackmon’s new book, Walk on Water: Are You Willing to Walk on the Water with Jesus? ($15.49, paperback, 9781545614495; $7.99, e-book, 9781545622407) readers will discover a journey of faith centered on obeying, trusting, believing, and surrendering. With inspiring description, the author illuminates God’s desire to see us live by faith and walk by that conviction instead of sight. Written based on sixteen years of seeing her own faith come to fruition, she now uses her own experiences to help others step out on faith.


“My experience is living proof that God still calls us to walk on water,” states the author. “Many people read the Bible and are amazed by persons they can only read about. God has allowed me to experience a faith journey that allowed me to see him in many ways: provider, healer, protector, comforter, sustainer and so much more. I am a 21st century living example of Peter, stepping out of my boat (work) and walking on water. Walking on water seems impossible, but so will some of the things God calls you to do. You won't know until you take the first step.”


Carmen L. Blackmon is on the board of directors for Whatever is Pure Ministries and is a sponsor for an orphanage in Africa. She founded G3: Give God Glory Ministries, which serves to meet the spiritual needs of women and encourage them to walk out their God-given calling. She resides in Charlotte, NC, with her husband Jonathan Blackmon of twenty-five years and counting.
