To God belongs the glory, first and foremost.

Nana Akonaah Bonsu

Nana Akonaah Bonsu is a humble, quiet man that has gracefully relished God’s blessings.

A loving wife, Martha, of 34 years and counting; a son, Shawn; three daughters, Angel Akua, Ama Manu, and Afiah Boatemaa. Four grandchildren, also and counting: Samara, Shamar, Darnell, and Rahquel.

I do not take any credit for what I write because I am only the transcriber. Time and again I have stressed that I give God the glory for my wisdom.

May God extend His blessings to all that take the time to read the books I have written. Many more books are in the works, all coming from His Love that sustains me.
