In her compelling life story, My Mess Became My Message, Shalaunda “Shay” Nielsen shares the mess that once was her life in hopes that her story will be the benediction that leads someone to Christ. Once a stripper, lesbian, liar, fornicator, and adulterer, Shay lived a life that screamed “sin.” Hearts will drop as readers live through her delivering her stillborn son, witness worldly escapades, and fight demons that continue to haunt her. The same hearts will rejoice as they relive the moments where she dedicates her life to Christ, marries a man who is after God’s heart, and gives birth to her daughter. Two very different lives…lived by the same woman through the grace of God. As readers turn the pages they will watch the mess transform into a message.
Shalaunda Nielsen, called Shay by those closest to her, is a wife, mother, daughter, visionary, and most importantly a woman of God. By age twenty-one Shay had seen more than most women twice her age, lived a life that paralleled the plot of an urban fiction novel, and sunk to her lowest low. She had compromised everything God intended her to stand for through lesbianism, stripping, and drug use. Yet in the midst of it all Shay felt God tugging at her heart and began to yearn for Him instead of worldly desires. She learned through a series of events that God is no shorter than His Word, and as a result today she is a sold-out Christian on a mission to allow her mess to be a message that will deliver other young women from the jaws of hell.
