Extract of a Review
The author eloquently defines Ecclesiastes 3, pointing out that, by freely accepting God's will, she has been amply blessed with a faithful family, loyal mentors, good friends, and a full life.
She successfully leaves her readers with a message of hope and inspiration by sharing her belief that, through introspection and prayer, one may find meaning within the events of their own everyday experiences.
She appears to be a firm proponent of the old adage, "When days seem at their darkest, surrendering and trusting in the divine will ensure peace and prosperity".
All in all, I found this book to be quite engaging.
The author's reflections on her childhood were beyond charming in some spots, yet brought me to tears in others.
Her candidness about her relationships with parents, siblings, husband, and her own children reminded me so much of my own family's saga, and I must admit that I was thrilled to find a read that tugged at my heartstrings the way this book did!
For any individual seeking solace and meaning in today's hectic world, "Your TIME is NOW: A Time to be Born and a Time to Die" is a beautiful and soulful read.
Thank you, Brenda Mohammed, for sharing your journey with me!" 


Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan: Journey of an Educator.


Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan: Journey of an Educator, is an inspiring and motivational story.
The book received four five-star reviews from Readers Favorite.
The foreword was written by a former Chief Justice of Trinidad and Tobago, Sir Isaac Hyatali, Q.C.[now deceased]
Do you know that at one time Education was not a priority?
The young teacher Andrew overcame all obstacles and became a trailblazer in Education in his country climbing the ladder from classroom management to school principal, and superintendent of schools.
The Government of Trinidad and Tobago awarded him a scholarship to study teaching methods in the United Kingdom.
School violence was never heard of during his tenure.
He was God-fearing.
Later in life, he became the first Presiding Elder in the Presbyterian Church in Trinidad and Tobago.
He preached many sermons, some of which are appended to his biography. 

Dr. Khan gives a glimpse into life in the days of Indentureship in Trinidad and Tobago
Teachers will love Dr. Khan's memoir.
Extract of Review by K.C. Finn from Readers Favorite:
'Mrs. Brenda C. Mohammed has done a wonderful job in bringing the life, philosophy, and personality of Dr. Andrew Khan to life in this compilation of teachings.
As an educator myself, I was particularly interested in Dr. Khan's individualistic approach to students and the humanitarian way in which he achieved success.
Memoirs of Dr. Andrew Moonir Khan presents the life of an inspiring man who struggled through underprivileged circumstances to rise to the top of his field, all without losing his generosity of spirit or his creativity.
For educators, the book demonstrates how passion and planning can lead to a great many good things in the future, but for a wider audience, the book holds value as an inspiring story of faith and commitment to one's true path.
I would recommend this book for biography fans seeking a deep but feel-good read..'

Follow the author on her remarkable journey.
Read a five-star review from an Amazon Reviewer:
“Great Motivational Read!
What can I say about "Retirement Is Fun?" It's a book that gives the good and the bad of living in this 21st century. There are incredible miracles and incredible heartbreaks, yet through it all with the support of family and faith in God, we prevail.
The author wrote the story as it occurred, with no frills or embellishments. She takes the reader along with her to the many places she visited. Her obvious enjoyment in them is a testament to her wonderful spirit.
The book is written in two parts. I was happy the author gives us the good news in the first half, that way, the reader is able to see her strength and appreciate from whence she came. I was impressed with the places she had visited. I'd thought I was a world traveler, but I take my hat off to her and her wonderful family.
This is a great motivational and inspirational story for anyone who needs uplifting.”


My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living.


'Find the courage to go on, never giving up, even when the road of life curves.'
Set in the lovely Caribbean island of Trinidad. My Life as a Banker: A life Worth Living is much more than just a fascinating memoir. It starts with the author’s early life and childhood.
Having defied death twice at the ages of eight and nine, she excels and graduates from High School at the tender age of sixteen and lands a job with an International bank with ties to the United Kingdom. Brenda proved that hard work and determination pay, as she moved up the ranks, and received several promotions, leading up to senior managerial status.
Brenda describes changes in the banking system and changes in the bank's attitude towards its employees throughout her working years, and the important roles she played to bring about changes.
Life is not always perfect and there were sad moments that will tug at your heart. There were also happy moments, like when she met her husband and the birth of her children.
My Life as a Banker: A Life Worth Living by Brenda Mohammed was the winner of Best Bio/Memoir 2nd place in Metamorph Publishing Summer Indie Book Awards 2016.
A reviewer wrote: Must Read!
"Don't let the title with the word 'banker' in it fool you into believing this book is for finance professionals only. It is actually the true and inspiring story of one woman's immense faith and family that helped shape her into the powerful, yet humble woman she became."
