I am a writer, Bible teacher, overachiever, overcomer, chocolate/sweets enthusiast, and Jesus follower. I started this blog to open a dialogue about how to navigate the challenges, struggles, and obstacles we encounter in life and, ultimately, not allow these experiences to define us. I’m excited to share tips, ideas, resources and whatever else works to free us to create lives that God loves and we enjoy.
My prayer is that you will join me.
First a divorce and most recently the passing of my second husband, Reggie. I was a happy newlywed on the path to creating my dream life with Reggie. We were both serving the Lord in our home church, First Baptist Church of Glenarden International, as well as through a ministry we founded together called A Cord of Blue, where we provided the training and resources to transform the lives and relationships of those considering the transition from being single to married.
We were busy living our lives while providing the needed biblical and practical advice on how to navigate the courtship/dating and engagement waters, when Reggie suffered a massive heart attack while out jogging. Our journey, everything that I thought I would ever need or be, was brought to a screeching halt.
It took time, however I successfully transitioned from the end of our journey to the beginning of my journey. Along the way, I discovered a buried treasure: God’s process for creating new lives. I dove deep into Scripture and unearthed God’s process.
Today, using my unique perspective, authenticity, and courage, I meet readers and followers starting over from scratch and help them regain their agency. I guide them through God’s process for creating a new life after theirs has been destroyed, or when just starting out.
Being a published writer is my calling, but like many writers, my journey has been far from smooth. I have encountered innumerable obstacles along the way, the most challenging of course being Reggie’s passing, which dimmed my passion for writing until I healed.
However, in the summer of 2020, my passion reignited. God used the COVID shutdown and subsequent months as a wilderness experience to prepare me for a new writing journey.
Now, through my new beginning, I am rewriting my ending—one glorious chapter at a time!
