Joseph Brown, a Pine Bluff resident and author of “It Don’t Matter,” will host a book signing from 1-3:30 p.m. Saturday in the lobby of the Ramada Plaza Hotel, 2 Convention Center Drive.

Every person who has walked the way of life has experienced some woes, frustrations, pain, set-ups and setbacks. In Brown’s book, he addresses what many refer to as issues surrounding one’s life. The book encourages readers to look at their present mindset and make them realize that the mind is a fertile ground capable of producing positive or negative fruit. Readers will be “challenged to keep on trying, keep on working at it and keep on developing the mind so that there is forward progression.”

“In every life some “its” will come. In ‘It Don’t Matter’ I simply address what many refer to as issues and simply call them “its,” Brown said. “I challenge us all to not allow the “its” to be the final chapter in our lives.”

Brown has been licensed and ordained since 1988. He graduated from the Salvation Army seminary in 1998 and continued his education, graduating from Summit Bible College in Bakersfield, Calif., in 2009 with a doctoral degree in divinity. He has been privileged to serve several denominations in various capacities. He and his wife, Nina, have served together in ministry for more than 20 years in the areas of education and counseling. They have eight children — five daughters and three sons.
