About the Book:


Similar to the natural crime, many victims of spiritual identity theft are not even aware that their spiritual identity has been stolen.  This kind of theft may go unaddressed for many years until they face a difficult situation and suddenly discover that their identity has been stolen in the process.

In Identity Theft: Discovering the Real You, DeMonica D. Gladney provides an inspiring and real life, first-hand account of her personal encounter with identity theft.  Many years ago, an imposter secretly stole her natural identity by snatching her good name, money and credit.  Simultaneously, the enemy began to subtly steal her spiritual identity by attacking her God-given purpose and destiny.  Through both challenging and life-altering experiences, which occurred years after her near fatal car accident, Gladney gained a powerful revelation and insight about the keys to reclaiming one’s “real” identity.  In a unique, thought provoking approach in Identity Theft, she merges natural and spiritual identity theft together from a biblical perspective to give you a step-by-step roadmap to recover your stolen identity.
[Read Excerpt from Book]


“We've all heard of identity theft, but what most people don't know is that their spiritual identity can be stolen as well. Many Christians live defeated lives simply because they do not know who they are as children of God. In DeMonica Gladney's latest book, Identity Theft: Discovering the Real You, readers will discover the tricks the devil uses to rob them of their spiritual identity and cause them to live unfulfilled lives.

DeMonica Gladney draws on her own story of physical identity theft to give readers a fresh perspective on living the Christian like life. Not only does Gladney give us steps to take to avoid being victims of identity theft, but she outlines for us how to proactively protect ourselves from spiritual identity theft by knowing God's Word; knowing how to fast and pray; knowing the enemy's devices; and knowing our authority as Christians. Follow these four steps and you will not only be able to recapture your stolen spiritual identity, but you can prevent the enemy from stealing your identity in the first place…You will be blessed. We highly recommend this book.

Black Christian Book Review Excerpt (January 19, 2011)

“…Gladney poses an intriguing question for Christians by asking if spiritual identity can be stolen, and, if so, how does one recover it?...The book is broken down into four sections, each representing a step toward overcoming spiritual identity theft.  Gladney begins by walking the reader through an assessment of what is missing, and then moves forward through the steps to full recovery.  Along the way the reader learns a great deal about “natural” identity theft, as well, providing both a helpful resource and important background for the overarching spiritual discussion…Once spiritual identity theft has been identified and ascertained, the reader is encouraged to overcome the theft using scripture, prayer and other spiritual disciplines...Review questions and other study aids add to the value of the text as a practical guidebook.”

Kirkus Reviews Excerpt (January 28, 2011)


“DeMonica Gladney’s Identity Theft: Discovering the Real You inspires victims of identity theft to know the truth of their essence - that although a thief can steal your material identity, your spiritual identity given to you by God belongs only to you.  Ms. Gladney gracefully and lovingly guides you through the journey of stolen identity to attain trust that God will restore all that you have lost.”

Mari J. Frank, Esq.
CIPP, Radio Host and Author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide To Recovering From Identity Theft, Safeguard Your Identity and From Victim To Victor: A Step By Step Guide for Ending the Nightmare of Identity Theft

“The premise for Identity Theft is very significant in light of the struggle so many people have with discovering who they are in Christ and living out that relationship through their life!  DeMonica’s ‘investigative’ abilities as a lawyer make the analogies even stronger and very insightful.  Identity Theft is a wonderful book full of powerful, personal testimonies and insightful analogies to help one discover their real ‘you’ in Christ Jesus!”

Dr. Sonny Foraker
Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church - Pearland

“DeMonica Gladney is a dynamite young lady who has a powerful new book that shares strategies and ideas that give you a new perspective on discovering the real you and not letting the real you be stolen away!  Read this book, then re-read it, and then share it with your friends!  She shows you how the best you, is within you!”

Willie Jolley

“DeMonica Gladney has provided a divinely inspired path to our true identity.  For those willing to take an honest journey, she helps uncover areas of “spiritual identity theft” while providing guidance toward God intended authenticity.  Her true light and spiritual wisdom shine; blessing those who are willing to receive her literary gifts.”

Identity Theft is a powerful tool for evaluating one’s stolen identity while reinforcing it.  It’s a must-read for everyone who desires to discover who they really are from the inside out.”

Victor McGlothin
Essence Bestselling Author of The Secrets of Newberry

Identity Theft is spectacular!  No other book combines the spiritual and the natural aspect of identity theft.  DeMonica Gladney does an excellent compilation of revealing the spiritual phenomenon of identity theft of a person’s total identification. This book is one of DeMonica Gladney’s greatest works!”

Shanelle Gilbert, LPC
Author of Love That Moves Mountains & The Wilderness Season

“This is a dynamic book that forces you to come face to face with who you are now and the real you God intended.  While hopefully they are one and the same, DeMonica Gladney alerts us to the fact that often we, without even knowing it, allow the enemy to steal our true identity inherited from God.  In this book, she helps us learn how to recover our identity, walk in our purpose, and live life as God has planned.  Congratulations to the author for a well written, timely, and essential message that is both preventative and redemptive.  I believe each reader will be blessed.”

Troy J. Wilson, Esq.
Pastor, Unity Adventist Worship Center

Identity Theft is like an alarm clock going off.  It awakens the Body of Christ to the crimes being committed against the believer’s experience of all that he or she possesses through Jesus Christ.”

Laura Wilcox
Author of Capture My Heart, Lord

“The Holy Spirit leads DeMonica to teach and minister metaphorically by using an analogy, real life experiences, and practical application to help readers understand and know their true identity in Jesus Christ.  Satan and his pseudo (fake) cohorts are exposed and people are empowered.”

Prophetess Monique Lampkin, MATS
Setting The House In Divine Order Ministries

“In Identity Theft, DeMonica Gladney walks you through the arduous task of rediscovering your emotional, physical, financial and spiritual identity.  She artfully reveals the answers to three of life’s most important questions: ‘Who are you? Where are you going? and What is your destiny?’  This book is a manual to help you through your journey of self-discovery.  An absolute must-read if you desire to find the real you.”

Dr. Kervin J. Smith
Author of The Seven Spirits of A Woman, Your Destiny Now & Overcoming the Enemy Within

“If you have ever been robbed or experienced theft or loss, you can recall the roll coaster of emotions you felt...fear, betrayal and depression.  Identity Theft speaks passionately to the hearts and minds of those who have experienced spiritual identity theft.  Author DeMonica Gladney gives a practical step-by-step guide to help you identify what has been stolen and how to move toward self-discovery. Through this must-read book, lives will be transformed and true identities discovered.”

Dr. Connie Stewart
Author of The Master Orchestrator & Life Coach, Life in Bloom

“If you have struggled with your spiritual relationship, had a problem consistently resisting the devil, or lived your life through the eyes of others, you should read, digest and apply Identity Theft.  This book will cause you to examine your spiritual relationship with God, confront the enemy within and cause you to reclaim the person God formed you to become.  While reading the God inspired word, you will laugh, cry and rejoice.  When you are done, you will find that you are stronger, better and wiser than the day you began this spiritual journey.”

Pamela J. Meanes, Esq.
Reverend, The New Freedom Baptist Church

“In Identity Theft: Discovering The Real You, DeMonica Gladney exposes the enemy for exactly who he is: a liar and a thief.  If you wish to take back who you are in Christ, this book is a must-read.”

Madeline C. Kirksey
Author of In Pursuit of the Promise

Identity Theft is a very thought provoking work that captures the heart of God and encourages the readers to take spiritual inventory of their lives.  If you have been experiencing a void in your life, Identity Theft will lead you into a personal encounter with God and place you on the path to discovering who God created you to be from the foundation of the world.  I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a closer walk with God and the pursuit of their God-given identity!”

Pastor Lasonya M. Stuckey
Author of Created to Prosper: Going From Just Enough to More Than Enough

Identity Theft brilliantly explores this spiritual ‘identity crisis’ phenomenon surprisingly prevalent within the Christian community, and encourages readers to re-discover who they are in Christ.  It convicts us to better understand that if we are the children of the One who created the universe, then as heirs to His throne, the possibilities for our lives are limitless.  What a blessed revelation set forth in such a thoughtful and relatable book!  This book has truly been a blessing to me, and I know it will be to you. An absolute must read!”
