Hi, there! 

I'm so glad you're here! That means you're curious about my writing history, my books or booking me for a speaking engagement, all of which makes me very happy. Why? Because I love to tell stories, whether through writing or speaking. I enjoy helping mobilize communities, especially communities of fellow sister friends to find, fetch and follow their passion. 

Still curious about me? Here it is in a nutshell: I grew up in rural Louisiana, where I discovered a love for Mayhaw Jelly and Magnolia trees. That's probably the best thing I can say about my childhood there. Aside from fantastic female role models found in my grandmothers and mother, my life was pretty pointless. Until I went to college and recommitted my life to Christ. My world went from black and white to color overnight, and I have never been more grateful. Soon I found my way to Texas, where I majored in jouirnalism and became the first person in my family to graduate with a four-year degree. 

I worked my way through college as a journalist with the local newspaper, covering everything from obits to married priests (that's another story). After graduation, I spent about three months at an Austin, Texas, paper before it sunk like a body tied to a rock. That's when I was led into nonprofit ministry. I was hired as the Communications Manager for Children At Heart Ministries and my life has never been the same. 

God has taught me, and continues to teach me, many things through my adventures with Him. I've learned the hard way what happens when I veer off His path and onto my own. Let's just say the journey never ends well. I'm always eager to share what He's done, what He's doing and how you can trust in His guidance.
