REAL ISSUES MINISTRIES

Writing for the uncoachable and the unapproachable and game-changing content for the unreachable and the unteachable.

ABOUT REAL ISSUES

​In Mark 4, after keynoting for a large conference, we find Jesus and His staff boarding a two-deck yacht, in route to Gadarenes, where He and His staff encounter a hurricane. Oftentimes, when we hear this account, we tend to focus on Jesus being able to comfortably sleep through and speak to the storm, while safely making it to His destination. But what or who was so important, that the Lord ignored a category 4 wind advisory? You could assume that He was scheduled to keynote another conference, in some 20,000-seat venue. But He wasn’t. The Lord had one person on His itinerary. One unlikely, unpopular individual, and that was a mentally ill man who’d been living at a cemetery. Technically the man in question was unsheltered, which today would make him homeless. Which means Jesus ignored a category 4 wind advisory and went through a storm for one mentally deranged homeless man, or as He cites in Matthew 25:44, 45, the least of these. Like Jesus, I write for an audience of one. Those that are hungry, thirsty, naked, sick, and in prison; physically, financially, and spiritually.

In fact, I’ve written books and blogs for the hungry and thirsty – ‘The Do-It-Yourself Guide out of Homelessness’.

The naked, ‘Real Sex Issues: Real Talk About Life Before, During, and the Aftermath of Sex’, ‘Side Chick’, ‘Girl, Get Your Mind Right’, ‘Girl, Get Ready! Your Future Husband is Coming!’, Outercourse Education for Moms and Dads,  with a companion playbook for teens entitled, 'Girl, You're Not Ready!'

The sick, ‘Deep-Pression: Real Talk About Hyperspirituality and Depression’, ‘You Are Not Losing Your Mind’, ‘Cross-Eyed’, and ‘Crash Course Faith for Parents of Terminally Ill Children'.

And for those in prison, ‘Crime, Criminals, and Redemption: What the Bible Says About Certain Crimes and Those Who Commit Them.’

Those are only a few. I currently have 64 working titles.  Truthfully, I don’t write for the sake of popularity. I tackle hard-hitting, unpopular, real life issues that plague the saved and the unsaved. Therefore, my mission is to write for the uncoachable and the unapproachable while creating game-changing content for the unreachable and the unteachable. And I'd be absolutely thrilled if you'd consider supporting my ministry so that I can ePublish my library and record audio books so as to ensure these life-changing biblically banging materials get into hands, homes, and hearts of the least.

A LITTLE ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Staci Sweet

​​​I am a stage III child cancer, domestic abuse and violent crime survivor with a professional background in Performance Management. After being kicked off the corporate ladder, I landed in hyper-spirituality, and spent the next several years fighting promiscuity, homelessness and deep-pression; a combination of hyper-spirituality, depression, and mental illness. But after 18 years of prayer and constant Bible study, I spent that time in sexual seclusion (abstinence) and sought God for answers exclusively for the least of these.

(That's why I have 64+ books, plays, and films currently in the works.)

HOW YOU CAN HELP

​When interviewed by Black Enterprise®, veteran Actor, Director, and Producer, Harry Lennix, made the statement that, ‘spiritual content for black people doesn’t exist1.’ Though true, neither does contemporary spiritual content for all people. Faith-based programming usually only scratches the surface of safe subjects. But very little is devoted to the tough topics that the least of these, face. Such as how to get out of homelessness, gangs, and the game of sex. What does the Bible say about convicted felons, why is there a side chick epidemic in America, and how do I deal with my husband’s porn addiction, to name a few. And what about white supremacy, racism and immigration? Where is that in the scriptures? There’s so much that the Bible teaches about the aforementioned, but when they’re discussed, it's either corny or it's scrubbed clean of the griminess that most struggle with. Thereby, making it impossible to see the relevance of the Bible in light of the ugliness so many face today. But with your support, we can get the Lord out of those gladiator sandals and into some J's. In fact, all my teachings walk readers through the Word and into their real-life situations where they’re able to clearly see and apply the Word in real-time. Hence, Real Issues Ministries. #shamelessplug
