Walk in your calling. Live in your purpose.

Hello, and welcome to The Bona Fide Beasley! Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and know that I appreciate you doing so!

The Bona Fide Beasley is an independently owned and operated publishing and consulting firm, established in 2022, initially for the purpose of publishing and distributing my first book, "The Simplicity of My Testimony: A Memoir" titled after my blog of the same name. After the August 2022 release of the book, I began a series of public book sales and signing events, and as my following grew and inquiries about online purchasing of the book increased, I realized the need to have a dedicated website to further establish my brand and help inspire and lead people to Christ through my work.

Only a few days after going live with the website, I was further inspired by God to broaden the scope of the business, branching out into areas that the Lord had already established in and through me. Consequently, The Bona Fide Beasley is evolving into a multi-service business that includes consulting services for people interested in writing and publishing their own book, starting a new small business, or creating a website. The Bona Fide Beasley is also the place to come to if you're in need of high-quality editing and web design. I also offer my time for Christ-centered public speaking/motivational speaking on the subject matter specifically related to my personal testimony.

As you browse this site, you may find that, while most of the work is complete, it's still a work in progress. I will continue to add content, including more pictures and at least one excerpt from "The Simplicity of My Testimony: A Memoir," I'll also complete the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use sections, add links where needed, and try out different fonts, colors, and styles.

I will ask that if you see any typos, please be forgiving. This business is my "second job." I have a full-time career, and after I come home (or finish my career work if I'm working from home), I spend several more hours further developing this website. Consequently, I'll keep at it until such time that I feel the site is complete and can then switch to maintaining, refreshing, and adding content as needed.

Like my memoir, this website is already a labor of love, built to glorify God and hopefully inspire people. I welcome and encourage you to stop by the site again often, and watch the changes unfold until The Bona Fide Beasley is exactly what I believe it should be - a beautiful extension of the book!
