What To Expect
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and what you can expect. I am a testimonial speaker meaning that I share my life experiences and how God blessed me through my trials and tribulations. I give all honor and glory to God because if it wasn't for HIM I would not be where I am today. I also enjoy sharing how the word of God, prayer, and fasting changed my life and how God is ready to do the same for you. 

Here are some of the topics and descriptions that I have shared at previous speaking events:

• Divorce Recovery - Suicide, abuse, emotional manipulation, homelessness,
low self-esteem
• Sink, Swim, or Float – My journey to becoming an pastor, author, speaker, entrepreneur, and publisher

I Can't Process My Truth

No, I'm Not Okay  As a mother watching anyone cry out for their mother as they struggle to breathe does something to you. I remember when my friend called and asked me to watch the video of George Floyd. It was disgusting, inhumane, and sadly not the first video I have seen like it. Yet for for me this video took me to another place mentally.  The fact that this keeps happening and on  top of that it could have been my husband, brothers, or grandson infuriates me. Also knowing this could happen to any woman in my family, including myself, reminded me no one is safe in my family that includes man, woman, or child.  So I tried really hard to distance myself from the media outlets to take time to process this, and to be honest I'm still at a loss and I can't process this. I can handle many things but this I cant and sadly this isn't the first time. It keeps happening over and over again. Sadly, I have had to process other stories like this one for some time now, and I

A Message of Hope for Struggling Marriages

Disclaimer:   I have worked with divorcees for many years now. As you read this blog post I want to make it clear that I am in no way speaking about divorces that stem from abuse or any other reason a couple has deemed it necessary to part ways. God placed this blog topic on my heart to share with married couples especially since me and my husband did not recognize some of the strategies of opposition when we first married back in 1999.  I pray this message blesses  marriages that are struggling from attacks of the enemy. Marriages where couples are tired and weak from fighting one another so they are contemplating on calling it quits. I pray this blog blesses your marriage and helps bring back hope if you and your spouse are currently struggling.  A Message of Hope for Struggling Marriages As I sat across from my husband it was evident that he had changed and though he smiled at me from across the restaurant table for the first time in over 10 years it was different
