The Get Through, Going Through Life mirrors her mission to endure and overcome life obstacles. Arnetha says, "In warfare, we are not mere bystanders." Apostle Paul said, "We must put on the whole armor of God" (Ephesians 6:14-18a) to get through, going through life.
Prior to writing about God's whole armor Arnetha rejected this study. Subsequently, she did not have time since her primary focuses were building social networks and programs. Upon her brokenness, she repented and became remorseful. Then God orchestrated her first self-published book, Power of the Blood at Work-Broken Veil. The updated version is only available in eBook. Arnetha is currently updating titled, Beautiful as a Butterfly, a children's book. Help in the Midst of Grieving Handbook-Revised is now available. This grieving handbook responds to the loss of loved ones from sudden or unexpected death, sufferings from sickness and disease, tragedies such as drive-by and mass shootings, gang and domestic violence; in addition to victims and survivors of violence and human trafficking.
