"Who You Callin’ Silly? How a Silly Woman Becomes Virtuous", by Kimberly R. Lock, is an engaging and thought-provoking personal conversation about the nature of unconditional love, forgiveness, feminine strength and power and true meaning of becoming virtuous. While this word is often used to describe a woman of God, its true meaning is now elucidated for every woman.

“If this book can touch one life - one woman – and help her to have a more positive outlook on life and understand her worth,” says Lock, “then writing it was not in vain. If the reader is a non-believer, they will still be able to obtain valuable information to apply to their life. I hope they take the information and strengthen their inner being that much more or help someone else in need.”

"Who You Callin’ Silly?" guides women to the path of virtuousness through three sections titled: “All My Single Ladies,” “I’s Married Na!”, and “Every Woman,” which touch upon the following topics:

• Take control of your life by refusing to be defined by stigmas, stereotypes, prejudices, past mistakes and present challenges

• Transform any past hurts that have shaped your character into the silhouette of a woman of power with humbleness of mind, sincerity and gratitude

• Enjoy life as a responsible role model for yourself, other women and your children.

• Reshape your entire foundation and take hold of an uncompromising future with boldness and confidence.

“It is my intention,” says Lock, “to get you to take an inward look at yourself and determine if you have been living up to the standards that God has established for women. I share my own personal experiences and experiences of others that help us transform from silly women to virtuous women of God. I hope to capture the audiences of the young and old, married and single women so that we can truly understand our worth and value to the body of Christ, to society and to ourselves. So then you too can say, “who you callin’ silly?””

Lock, a mother of five and a wife who assists her husband in the business aspects of running Unity Gospel House of Prayer (UGHOP), in Milwaukee, says that if you’ve ever done anything you’re not proud of, this book is for you.

"Let God, through these pages, be your guide to becoming virtuous," she says.
