A Christian Author's Inspiration - Nobody Greater [Video]

This song has such a powerful message. It's not new, but it's the song that made Vashawn Mitchell a household name, and although he's released other songs since this one which was on his debut CD, none of them have been quite as impactful (for me) as "Nobody Greater."

This has been one of my absolute favorite gospel anthems since its release. I was listening to it just as I was closing out my writing assignments for the evening, and I thought I'd share it with you all. Enjoy, be blessed, and know that whatever it is that you're looking for in life, you can find it in JESUS. There is nobody greater!!!

From one of my favorite authors, Kendra Norman Bellamy 
Pam Perry and Author Kendra Norman Bellamy
Best-selling Author of 22 Books, Kendra Norman Bellamy and me

Kendra Norman-Bellamy is a native of West Palm Beach, Florida, but spent most of her formative years in south Georgia.

In 1988, Kendra married Jimmy Lee Holmes and later gave birth to their two daughters, Brittney LaKendra (b. 1989), who is also a national bestselling author and Crystal Charmaine (b. 1992). Following Jimmy's death in 1995, she later married Jonathan Bellamy. Kendra began writing poetry as an elementary school student, but did not recognize her gift as a writer until 1999 when she journaled the lingering heartache of the loss of her first husband.

 Shortly thereafter, she penned her first fictional manuscript, For Love & Grace, which received rave reviews when it became her freshman published novel in 2002.

She has appeared in a number of televised programs including a featured appearance on BET's Lift Every Voice where she was interviewed by the show's creator and former host, Gerard Henry.


In addition to her own writing, Kendra is the founder and president of KNB Publications LLC, an independent self-publishing house that produces the works of up and coming writers of Christian based fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

She is also the founder and organizer of Cruisin' For Christ, an ongoing Caribbean cruise that celebrates Christian artists and artistries and the visionary of The I.S.L.A.N.D. Movement, a motivational ministry whose name is an acronym for "I Shall Live And Not Die."

Her debut novel, For Love & Grace was self-published in 2002. The book was re-released in 2004 through BET Books. Norman-Bellamy gained national bestseller status when her third release, Crossing Jhordan's River (Moody Publishers/May 2005), peaked at #1 on Essence magazine's Best Sellers List for paperback fiction.

The majority of her works have been produced through three large book publishers: Moody Publishers (Lift Every Voice imprint), Kimani Press (New Spirit imprint), and Urban Books (Urban Christian imprint).
