The message of the book progresses with the intention of touching on many matters relevant to the Gen X/millennial portion of our population in general which may leave them feeling hopeless and helpless. With quotes from the Scriptures and measured doses of wisdom, HEAVEN HELP ME! addressing such matters as financial distress, sexual trauma, loss of friends and loved ones, various forms of mental illness, and other concerns of spiritual crisis.
HEAVEN HELP ME! also teaches us about Christ’s wealth of love, not only for us, but for all His creatures. A plant-based lifestyle is explored with the explanation that all life on earth should be respected. Respecting God’s creation is important, as is ‘we shall not kill’.
Dr. Shenita Etwaroo is not the sort of person who can stand by and let injustice thrive in a world meant to be so beautiful. That’s why she’s written her newest non-fiction manuscript, COME TOGETHER. Now, more than ever, we live in deeply divided times, in a deeply divided country. The political and social issues have all of us turning against each other, and embolden those who would cast stones at their brothers and sisters for committing the ‘crime’ of being an immigrant, being a Jew, being disabled, being of a darker persuasion.
COME TOGETHER seeks to shed light on these injustices that surround us, and that many of us may yet be too blind to see. Chronicling her own life and the life of her strong mother, Shenita tells the stories of the abuses she and her mother suffered. These abuses are all too common, and they violate not only the individual, not just the collective, but human rights as a concept. At its core, COME TOGETHER is a narrative and a journey to bring light into the world.
Every human being, regardless of race or creed or any other factor, deserves to be treated with autonomy, respect, to have their basic needs met, to live freely and without violation. By coming together to dissect our issues and learn how to face each day as a humanist, we make the world, bit by bit, a better place. We turn our faces to the light and shun the dark, and, in doing so, we inherently raise the hands of our brothers and sisters, shield them from evil.
The Compassion of Beauty
From the original and pioneering mind of Dr. Shenita Etwaroo comes COMPASSION OF BEAUTY, a non-fiction book with a brand new take on veganism and beauty. This volume seeks to explore what it means to be vegan and helps to redefine beauty in the setting of a cruelty-free lifestyle. This book is suitable for vegans and those interested in being vegans, as well as fashion stylists who wish to cater to the growing clientele of animal rights activists and vegan. Another great focus of this book is the impact that the beauty and fashion industries have on our environment. Making vegan and cruelty-free choices is making green choices and vice-versa, and this book is packed with scientific information about connection between the beauty and fashion industries and how their practices have been harming and poisoning our planet-as well as the animals-this entire time. COMPASSION OF BEAUTY also teaches us about nutrition , smart shopping, making ethical decisions. A plant based lifestyle is explored though the lens of being able to consider oneself beautiful, and how being kind and cruelty-free makes us beautiful on the inside, which shows on the outside, too.
Shenita holds doctorate degrees, as well as several diplomas and certificates. Her interest in writing developed from her early career teaching English and literature at a secondary school, although she’s been writing about several topics for many years, including her lifelong love of animals.
Since she was a little girl, she would provide food and shelter for helpless, abandoned creatures. Because of her special bond with her bunny, Neon (Neo), she set out to become a vegan and animal advocate; supporting several animal and human rights groups.Her works of fiction and non-fiction alike are homage to an active voice for the innocent, oppressed, and vulnerable everywhere.
