Jeffery A. Faulkerson, MSSW, Masters-Level Social Worker Announces Release of New Book Raising My V.O.I.C.E.

"Raising My V.O.I.C.E." Tour Coming Soon to a City Near You

Wake Forest, NC ( - Jeffery A. Faulkerson, Founder, President & CEO of PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS Writing, Editing, Consulting, announced today the release of his new book Raising My V.O.I.C.E. (Verbalizing Orderly Impressions through Creative Endeavors). The self-published title, produced and distributed by Infinity Publishing (, is currently available online at

Raising My V.O.I.C.E. is a collection of writings that chronicles Mr. Faulkerson's sixteen-year quest to understand why Americans focus so much on their differences, not enough on their similarities. It is a book that pulls from the headlines of yesterday and today, offering sound advice to black Americans for how they can prosper individually and collectively through their love of God and neighbor.

Ultimately, Raising My V.O.I.C.E. is one man using the power of the pen to prompt serious dialogue about functional families, racial reconciliation, civic engagement and collective prosperity. It also serves as a clarion call for contemporary Christians to take firmer stances for Jesus.

In conjunction with the release of his new book, Mr. Faulkerson will also be touring the country to raise awareness about the thoughts, feelings and behaviors adversely impacting outcomes for black children, youths and their parents. During the Raising My V.O.I.C.E. Tour, Mr. Faulkerson will engage audiences in candid conversations about the issues that bind us.
