Dr. Lauren D. Pitts Combines Inspirational Self-Discovery with a Devout Christian Spirituality in Book Exhibited at L.A. Times Festival of Books

While many self-help books often talk about overcoming adversity through resilience and optimism, Dr. Lauren D. Pitts has taken a similar approach while integrating a strong Christian view. Her book, “The Queen Within,” shares a message very similar to other books on women’s empowerment but also incorporates sound Christian spirituality that focuses on her striving to be the great queen God intended her to be.

The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2023 featured plenty of books written by therapists who aimed to motivate and inspire readers with personal testimonies of positivity and resilience.

But for family therapist and life coach Dr. Lauren D. Pitts, the role of her Christian faith was too great for her book “The Queen Within: Becoming the Woman God Intended” to leave out.

“The Queen Within” is a book that not only tells her life story but does it in a way that shares a message about what it truly means to live ‘as God intended.’ Pitts managed to secure an exhibit spot for her book, courtesy of ReadersMagnet, a book marketing and self-publishing company.

The book takes Dr. Pitts’ extensive knowledge of mental and behavioral health and then integrates it with Scripture. Like many Christian authors, she is familiar with the dangers of sinful behavior and even openly admits that her engagement with such a lifestyle was part of her many trials.

However, Dr. Pitts has also an incredibly unique and compassionate approach to anyone facing similar struggles. Because of her own share of life’s lows, she knows that rebellious phases and bad decisions are inevitable. Nobody’s perfect, and everyone’s bound to make a bad decision at some point in their lives.

That is why she believes that those same imperfections and adversities are God’s way of helping people take the steps to achieve the great things He had intended for them.

Dr. Pitts has already received numerous awards for her work in providing empowerment and education for minorities. To this day, she shares much of the same advice in her book on her show HOUSE TALK Pre-Game.

“The Queen Within: Becoming the Woman God Intended” is available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. To learn more about Dr. Lauren D. Pitts’ work, advocacy, and more, please visit her website at
