About Rise Up My Beloved

This book is absolutely inspirational! It is a phenomenally honest autobiography of the redeeming power of God’s grace. You will not be able to put down this incredible, heart-wrenching story. Get your copy today!


I needed some time alone with the Lord and to just be alone, away from everyone. I needed to calm myself down. The only solace I could find was in a washroom. In that little cubicle, totally at the end of myself, I surrendered to His will. Nothing else mattered at this point except what He wanted. Knowing I was in my Heavenly Father’s hand, I cried, “Lord by obedience I will go. Give me your words to say. Help me Lord!”

Sonia McLeod shares the miraculous story of how God delivered her from a street life of drugs, alcohol, and prostitution. Hear the heart of this woman as she takes us through a journey of faith amidst great tragedy, heartbreak, and betrayal. Cast aside by friends, family, and finally by her husband, she emerges from the ashes of ruin and rejection in the arms of her true lover, Jesus Christ.

“I was not going to give up and die,
but it 
was time to RISE UP in JESUS!”

  1. Sonia, I met you briefly recently at the six nations Pentecost church after listening to Lott Thunder preach a powerful word. And I saw you at the first night of the camp meeting at the new credit christian fellowship church. I wasn’t quick enough to catch you and speak to you, so I hope you come back again as I would love to talk to you. Your Book is fantastic! And I know of many that I will be sharing it with. Praise Jesus and thanks be to God for you and may all the blessings of Abraham be given to you and your family! Thank you for your courage to share your story as I’m sure it will be helpful to many and bring them to know Jesus! Peace be with you Sonia! Love from a sister in Christian, Allison
