WELCOME to the Shawn Thomas Online Website!
Glad you're here. Take a look around, or a listen... :) Plus The Know You're Not Tour begins here!
Here's what's going on:
"Know You're Not" is a song based on and inspired by a new book which will be available soon. The book is called "The Power of NOT: Positive Results from Negative Affirmations." The message of encouragement in both the book and the song are the same: Identify who and what you are NOT in order to discover everything that you ARE.
In anticipation of the published book, the song "Know You're Not" is available exclusively on this site for FREE! No signing up for anything or going through hoops. Just CLICK HERE to download and enjoy a free HQ digital copy!
You can also stream and listen to the song online for free on YouTube.
More information about the new book, "The Power of NOT," will be available soon!
"The Power of Not" is probably not what you think. As a public speaker and writer, I've been coached to avoid the negative words. According my own teachers, there are other ways to communicate what needs to be said without mouthing or typing the words no, not, or never. But Shawn has found a way to strip the negativity from these words. He's even discovered what I'm calling the "science of reverse positivity" in that, now I know how good and positive the "nots" in my life really are. Thank you, Shawn, for reminding me of my own power and ability to not do, say, or be anything less than God's ideal. And for my favorite sentence in the whole book: "Covered in God's mercy, we begin to see the world differently."
-Kenny Bishop, Gospel Singer and Public Speaker
In his new book, Shawn Thomas unashamedly and transparently shares his past hurts and life challenges, encouraging others to see who they are "NOT" in God's eyes, therefore helping them to see who they ARE and how they are created. With chapters covering heartfelt subjects such as "Not a Victim" and "Not Alone," Thomas challenges us to see ourselves as we really are not, so that we can find freedom in the beauty of the Lord's creation in each of us.
