A real Renaissance man and his works

William Reed

The gospel song, "Order My Feet in Your Word," happens to be a popular tune. It’s a good theme for life and a personal request to God to "Prepare my goings in your paths and not let evil rule over me." However, to impose order on "your steps" requires practical techniques and applications.

What procedures are involved if you want to "walk worthy" through life? A new and empowering book entitled, "The Spirit Within: Embracing God’s Living Spirit for a Healthier Life," just might be the answer. It’s a timely guide that helps readers "order" their lives in both practical and spiritual ways. Author Alan E. Miller said, "Knowledge of God and his works in your life is empowering." Miller said that "you can enjoy a healthy life by having an accurate view of God in your heart and mind and letting that shape your life every day."

In Africans’ traditional life, spirituality is the foundation of one’s being. A believer’s destiny is bound up in spiritual pursuits throughout his life. In contemporary America, many Blacks search for their "spiritual enlightenment" and "true selves." But, empowerment is achieved only through utilization of fundamental leadership and management techniques. In the book, "The Spirit Within," Miller shows readers "how to walk" in productive and spiritual ways. The book provides a combination of plans for one’s life, scripture references, and exercises to refresh your spirit, refine your life, and refocus your goals and passions.

Miller said that "inspirational and religious book buyers, church members and leaders" are the target audience. He said it is a valuable tool that "no home should be without" and that "it should be read by every house member." He said the book’s "first-hand accounts of spirituality" can lead to "better, healthier lifestyles." In the "Spirit Scripture Index" section, readers can find a complete list of spiritual references that appear throughout the Bible.

Traditional and contemporary studies relate happiness, morale, and health to spirituality. Many older Blacks are saying that "religion helps them cope or adapt with losses or difficulties." For insights on "the Spirit inside each of us," Black church groups, book clubs, parents and student groups, or other gatherings, should give Miller a call. Instead of booking the local TV weatherman, church members, business executives and organizations would do well in their outreach, training, spiritual coaching and fundraising utilizing Miller and his publication for their programs.

Regarded as a modern-day Renaissance man, Miller is an artist, published poet, accomplished playwright and a corporate diversity marketing counselor. Miller’s also a certified "Fruit of the Spirit" instructor. Better grounded than those whose job it is just to read the news on TV, Miller knows how to help navigate obstacles and chart paths to solid solutions. He appears on news networks and his writings have been featured in national publications. Miller has spoken at numerous seminars and taught business, diversity and entrepreneurial leadership classes across America. He’s created, developed and implemented Diversity Marketing program activities among industry and church audiences.

Successful marketing programs Miller has introduced are currently helping religious and political organizations attract more members and craft mission statements, core values, and branding. Listed among the "Most Influential Blacks in Corporate America", Miller is a management specialist and leading advocate for free market principles and economics. He’s a combination of corporate trainer and "holy roller."
