Have You "Freed Your Inner Book" Yet?
Whew! It was worse than delivering my first born!
What You Need to Know About Me:
Having overcome many obstacles in my life, I started writing as a way of healing. Through sharing some of my work with a few close to me, I found that my words also inspired and motived them. Although we all had different exteriors, the pain, love, joy and fears we shared internally were similar in so many ways.

Black Tears

Emotional flood gates open and black tears gush over the valley.



The burden has become too heavy, the pain is now excruciating and the levy, too weak to handle the pressure has finally broken.



Screams of despair are released from within her mind and travel at the speed of light through the valley of her soul. The sound is so strident that the natural sounds of the earth are muffled.



As blackness over powers the light of day, a chill fills the air. The raucous… Continue

Let Not the Silence be Unbroken

Let Not the Silence be Unbroken



Put down the hand that covers your mouth when you begin to speak about the pain your soul has been bearing for what seems to be an eternity.



Tear down the wall you have built around your heart that allows you to love only from a distance and never build a bond with those whose bodies press against the other side trying to get close to you.



Step out of your armor, put down your shield and learn to trust with caution knowing God… Continue

God loves us
His love for us is a beautiful thing
It brings joy to our hearts
The love moves through our bodies and souls
A love thats stops us in our tracks, to feel the glory of God
We are uplifted, compelled to change our ways
To be better than good and live a spirit filled life
God's love has touched us
Inspiring everything and desiring nothing
That’s when our soul are free from temptation
To have faith and to keep it inside us
Helping others find Jesus and opening their minds
To be baptized in Jesus’ name, to be saved
To start them on the path to righteousness
