Let me introduce myself to you: I’m Laura Pinkston, aka Sister Pinky. And it is my spiritual duty to warn you that reading this website and the accompanying book could lead you into The Pink, or rather the lives of about a dozen women who in some way or other have elected to live there.

Of course, you’re wondering what “living in the pink” actually means. It’s simply this: Are your sins red like scarlet, are you seeking God so that He can make them white as snow… or are you satisfied somewhere in between—living in the pink? Now, you’re likely very busy these days with your family, your job, and your favorite TV shows to watch, so I won’t keep you reading too long. Just suffice it to say that this pink place is nowhere you should be, at least not if you want to reach your full potential in life.

You’ll learn a lot more after a while, perhaps more than you wanted to know, because I’m certain that the women in the Living in the Pink collection of stories aren’t unique. They’re just like you, going through the same things you’ve been facing and standing at the same crossroads where you’ve gotten stuck. As for me, I’ve been there, too, which is one reason I believe God taps me to talk to women like you, to tell you what I know because of what I’ve been through.

To start this journey, you’ll need to read the book, of course, but it doesn’t end there. To get a more personal take on your “pinkish” state, start a Pinky Group in your area so you can grow spiritually with other women (click on the “Pinky Groups” tab to find out how). Also, take the PinkyMeter quiz on this site, and follow the Pinky Talk scriptures and the Pinky Blog for a regular spiritual boost and for interesting discussion.

I know life can be hard and crazy and unfair sometimes, but you can reach your destiny. Just take this literary walk with me, out of the pink and into God’s marvelous light.

    I really enjoyed your Living In The Pink. I almost couldn’t put it down but I have 3 kids under the age of 3, so I was forced to at one point in time. I need to fill my spirit with more positive reads besides the bible. I will be looking into getting more of your books in the future. I work with your sister. Amazing, you are very gifted, keep writing. May GOD bless you!

    • LaKeisha, thanks so much for your sweet comments! I’m honored that you found my book worthy of your time, especially as a mother of three cuties, I’m sure. May you be abundantly blessed!

  3. I just finish reading your book living in the pink and I wanted you to know that was one of the best christian fiction i have read in along time.
    Thank You

  4. Hi Ms. Tubbs,

    I was briefly introduced to your book this weekend at the Cavalcade of Authors. While standing at Pat Simmons table I had a wonderful conversation with Roslyn Jordan. She told me the title and I came home searching…(smile)

    This is the kind of book we need in this day I believe some of us myself included get to laxed with our beliefs and what the Holy Spirit is saying to us. But please don’t get me wrong I don’t think we need to be “stiffed neck” either but relaxing too much can get us into trouble.

    It is my plan to get this book before the weekend because i believe it can help with my retreat we have annually with the book club. Our vision for the book club and the retreat comes from: 1 Thessalonians 5:11 (ESV)

    Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.

    If I don’t have enough time to incorporate your book into the retreat this year we have 2012 to get it done. God bless and thanks for this tool

  5. Hello Sharon,

    I love to see a serious Christian woman writing about real life situations and how God can help us through it all (if we want Him to). I loved the group discussion questions at the end of each chapter as well. Please let me know when you write another book.

    Thank you for standing up in Christ!

    • Shasa, I’m delighted that you enjoyed Living in the Pink! And I’ll definitely let you know when I write another book — we Christian women have to stick together! Blessings — Sharon

  6. I have not read any book in almost eight years due to vision problems. I recently purchased a kindle and Living in the Pink was the first book I purchased. I mainly purchased it because it was in my price range for the moment. This book was fantastic! I too had a hard time putting the book down. I also realized that in some areas of my life I am living in the pink. But I am pressing toward the mark. I have recommended this some of my friends, as I found it to be simply a good read of short stories, it holds and show valuable lessons that we could aspire to and the “Think About It” section really brought each chapter home. But what I found most refreshing is that it is current!!!!!!! Well done, my sister, well done! Thank you for writing this wonderful book!

    • Hi Nita! Thanks so much for your wonderful comments. I’m most happy that you found value in what I’ve written, and I hope that you — like me — continue to strive toward the greatness that God has in store. Blessings!

    Blessings Ms Tubbs – Loved your book so much – Introduced it to our church Women’s Ministry and we all read it as a group – not only was is fun, we were all blessed and learned from it. Looking forward to more of your work.

    • Thanks so much for your message! I was just praying this morning that God would send affirmations of His will and that my labor — in writing and other ventures — would not be in vain. Then I got your message on my phone! God is so good. … By the way, where (city/state) is your church, and how did you find out about “Living in the Pink”?

  8. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

    Read the book, love it and I still go back and read certain parts of it for motivation.

  10. Monte Williams said:

    Just finished reading the book as recommended by my First Lady. What a wonderful book! It was easy to read and kept my interest. What a gift you have. Thank GOD!

    • Monte, thanks so much for the feedback! I’m so glad that you got something positive from the book. Spread the word! And may God bless you richly.

    I had a dream the other night and the phrase “Living in the pink” kept entering into my dream – when I awoke I wrote it down not knowing what it meant. I typed the phrase into the internet search and I found your website. I am not a believer in coincidences! I have been wrestling spiritually for months now and I know the Lord has lead me here and I am so grateful for it. I look forward to reading your book and all the information you have to offer. Finally I have found some direction. Thank you so much!

    • Wow, Aubrey! I pray that God would use the words that He gave me to somehow help you see His will for your situation, whatever that may be. In the meantime, keep praying and reading the Bible, for His clearest direction comes from His Word. As you meditate on it and patiently wait on the Lord, the Holy Spirit will guide you into His truth. I have just said a prayer for you, that you would hear God speak clearly to you and have peace in what He’s saying. Be blessed!

  12. Hi Sharon! I just wanted to let you know that one of the stories, in particular, in “Living In The Pink” has inspired my sister and I to hold an all day womens conference at our church entitled “My Sister’s Keeper”. As women, we need to learn and understand how important it is for us to have one anothers back and also to keep eachother lifted up before God. It can get real hard out here and oftentimes only a “sister” can relate. I thank you so much for allowing God to use you in such a way that it brought about an inspiration to change and a willingness to make a difference. May God continue to bless and keep you and those that you hold near and dear!

  13. Dear Sharon, this book was so refreshing, inspiring, thought provoking and enlightening. I was so upset when I finished–I wanted to read more! I can’t thank you enough for writing this novel. I KNOW the lives of so many women will be changed and they will be freed to walk in the light of the Lord. I am so thankful to be leading the women of our church through this book study now. Praying for tremendous breakthrough in their lives. May every pinkish state be confronted and the will of Christ for all be done! Bless you!

    I like it. Your book has a lot of comparison to my life and yes I would like to read more

  15. Just finished Living in the Pink. Loved it!! When is the next one coming out. I’m ready.

  16. Woo hoo!! I’m ready. God has blessed you tremendously.
