Welcome to Narda Goodson Ministries
Reviews & Reader's Testimonies
Highly recommended for all races and genders as a thought provoking piece which shows you reality while taking you into the realm of Spiritual Warfare in an eloquent fashion, which is easy to follow and visualize. ~Elizabeth M. Gonzalez
I hope more men grab a hold of this book so they can learn how to avoid hurting their family, how to keep their eyes on Jesus, and how to watch for the seducer who comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Your book gives the reader a front row seat to the level of damage infidelity causes. I never would have seen how deep this offense within the family goes so thank you for your transparency and for allowing the world into your private journey. Now looking through the lens which you provided, I am able to see how husbands are called to protect their families and how our poor decisions can open them up for the enemy to viciously attack them in so many areas even later in life. I'm encouraged all the more to love and hold tighter my wife and my children. God bless you and may your story continue to bring healing where needed and encourage others as it has mine.

I’ll be honest. I hate reading! It has to be a mind catching book for me to even be able to concentrate. Once I started reading it, I was powerless to put it down! I tell you, the book really spoke to me in all aspects of my life. It’s like my journey home to God. It increased my faith knowing that even when I look in the mirror, I am forgiven but it also showed me I have to fix myself first. You’re an amazing author. I truly thank you for opening my eyes to the whole story, not just a pain but the journey, the process to healing. I had no hope yesterday. Today, I do honestly have hope!

In dealing with the pain that accompanies my family/marriage personal tragedy, I needed more than people just throwing Scripture at me. It was like people were telling me to get over it, which felt like a slap in the face. Getting over it wasn't so much of the issue as learning "how to" get over it was my challenge. Your book provides a realistic approach and strategy to the warfare that happens behind closed doors to those fighting in this area. I found so many helpful Biblical tips that often times I still revert to your book to sort of help me see where I am in my journey. Thank you for your candid transparency. GOD is using it as a guide that is clearly backed up by His Word to help me navigate through my most painful journey. I know others reading it will be blessed. It's definitely an eye opener. After reading your story, I know that through Christ, I, too, can make it.

Your book has brought so much healing into my life. Going through a divorce was hard enough but having no one to really share it with was worse. I love your transparency, Narda, and the step by step guide you provide for every level in the journey. Truly, there is healing in GOD's Word.
Thank you and God bless you.
Mary Lee - Chicago, Illinois
The author takes us on a journey of self discovery. She courageously talks about her challenging childhood and first marriage. Narda beautifully tells her story with scripture to make a point. God is the director of her life. This book is really a testimony to how God can use a person's life for his wondrous purpose. It will cause you to examine the relationship you have with God.

If you ever suffered from addiction. Been abused. Suffered rejection and distrust. Felt all alone. Been sexually assaulted. Couldn't see your way out etc., Will the REAL ME Please STAND UP! is a great book of a real life experience that will be a tremendous blessing for you! This book is a heartfelt book that will touch you in your inner most being. An absolute tear jerker of the things the writer experienced and also will give you tears of her triumphant rescue and overcoming Power by God! I was truly in awe! A lot of times, we have no clue of what a person suffered or been through by just seeing them with natural eyes! I know I have experience many things coming up in life, from childhood to adult, and never knew how to break free! But surely, this book is a testimony that no matter what hurts, mistakes, failures, and disappointments, God is able turn your life around and clean you up. Redeem the time for you! A must read for yourself or a loved one or friend!
Glory to GOD!

I have had the greatest honor of coming into the life of Narda Goodson. She is the author of the book Will the Real Me Please Stand Up! Ladies, it is a must read book. It covers a number of things from identity crisis, rejection, betrayal, and many lives have been healed by her book! I am greatly honored to have such a inspirational Christian lady in my corner! Thank you God!
Brandie Ray - Alabama
Thank you. This is exactly where I find myself. I never saw it as this - that people would tire "waiting" with me - seemingly giving up on me because - like me - they can't see the finished result. YOU HAVE NO IDEA OF YOUR MINISTRY TO ME TODAY. Love you!
"My Personal Gethsemane: But Gethsemane is a lonely place; a place where those closest to you will fall asleep on you, just as the disciples fell asleep on Jesus. Your so-called best friends fall into slumber in your darkest hour of need. While many go on with their lives, you are out of sight, out of mind, and alone to face your Gethsemane. Some will stay behind and watch from a distance, some praying and cheering for you while others watch to see what will become of you."

Debbie Calvert - Indianapolis, Indiana
On my commute home from work, I started to embark on the journey of accompanying you through 'Will the Real Me Please Stand Up'. I must say that the dedication, preface, introduction, first chapter, and first paragraph of the second chapter are an elaborate, intriguing pictorial of Biblical application to your life's ministry.
You ground your reader to brace themselves while educating and enlightening them and once you have enticed your audience, you slap them into cold hard reality. It's not just your reality, but that which is untold of many others.
My props and kudos to you for fighting and pressing pass the hurt to share with others the road to reality and recovery, peace, anointing, and true prosperity, which is found by continuously turning to the Lord our Father and allowing Him to guide you into your destiny/His will. I can't wait to delve deeper and digest what God has in store through you and this great work.

This book is a must read for all those who are searching for their identity or who are having identity crisis in their lives. This will truly open your eyes.

In this book, my wife Narda tells the reader about her personal experiences and how she struggled for years with an identity crisis and how she finally came full circle and embraced who she is, embraced her Spanish heritage, and then stepped into the call of God on her life.
This is a must read for anyone who is facing many of life’s challenges and a formula for overcoming rejection and betrayal. Many people will be healed by it and many lives will be changed by it.
