You’ve been through the fire. Life has handed you crisis and brought you to your knees. I know the feeling. I’ve been right where you are, hurting, broken and unhappy.

Come take a walk in my stilettos, and allow me to help you begin your own journey of healing, topple your obstacles, and demolish your naysayers. Incredible woman, you are a conqueror. It’s my mission to help you walk in greatness.

‘A Walk in My Stilettos’ showed me that there is no such thing as a hopeless situation.

How To Get Through The Struggle With Grace


When we see other people overcome their fears, face adversity, and then finally taste triumph, we affirm ourselves and say, “If they can do it, then I’m sure I can too!”
This tale will strike an emotional chord and has the power to change your life. Makini is proof that being an optimist, mastering the power of having a positive mindset that focuses on strength, and sharing experiences can heal you and help others at the same time.
Makini aspires to show you how the right mindset can turn anyone from being the victim to a victor, turn obstacles into opportunities, and attract the life you truly deserve. The power is within YOU!”

111 Affirmations To Help You Heal


Affirmations (meaning a statement said with confidence about a perceived truth) have helped thousands of people make significant changes in their lives.
To “affirm” something, by dictionary definition, means that you are declaring it to be true. So when you affirm that you are fit when you are not, wealthy when you are financially struggling, or loved when you are lonely, you are holding a vision for what you know CAN be true.
Makini Smith discovered the power of positive affirmations and gratitude prayers that changed her life for good. In the pages of this book she shares “111 affirmations to help you heal” that made a difference in her life. When we hold a high regard for ourselves and display self-love we set the tone for how we are treated by others. Up your level of living TODAY!

I’d love to hear from you
