And this is my story…
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a librarian. Maybe because my father was a librarian, …maybe not. Maybe because I loved to read books. I finally grew up and became a librarian of my own kind. I was an information-giver. My culture was reading, but all the more, it was reading ‘people’. I realized at a young age, I may not be called to be a librarian, but maybe…just maybe my was to discern life lessons for others and guide them to a better way of living.
I begin to give such knowledge away – because I saw how it helped people to GROW. Then, it became my profession, .. then it led to writing books, and sharing courses, and being a therapist…. it never stopped. Today, I am a working therapist, by profession, but I am also a chaplain. I realize I have been given a special gift of compassion. Pain began to be something I didn’t run from, but I instinctively desire to help others get to the other side of . Yes,.. I guess healing pain became my passion. Being a social worker for over 27 years has truly been a blessing. My work with women has inspired me the most. Both in out of the profession, in spiritual communities, south Africa, online, and the like.
After I working with women in substance abuse, I realized I wanted to do more and the only way I believed I could be my best with the work and calling on my life was – with God – holding my hand as I helped them. I realize growing in God was the best way to grow mentally, spiritually, emotionally, and receive divine healing in my life. Writing was also my delightful passion at a young age. I was ‘Writer of the Week’, in 9th grade, and my English teacher inspired me to hone my craft and keep writing. So I joined a writing group at my church in Texas, and the next thing I knew, I was inspired by over 25 women to write my first book.
What else? I like puppies… (I haven’t bought my own yet)… I am quirky, I like to drink lots of tea, wear funny looking hats, I love silence, I am an introvert, yet I love inspiring others via groups; interesting… I love babies and puppy dogs – yet I have neither!
