Born and raised in Plainfield, New Jersey, I attended church from a small child until the age of 10 when my parents separated and ultimately divorced. I have always had a very strong sense of right and wrong even then, but it wasn’t until I turned 18 that I returned to church. By the age of 21, I found out what it meant to give my life to the Lord and so through a high risk pregnancy and time spent alone with Him, I was able to commit my life to him.
From that time on in 1985, I began to seek God for the work He would have for me to do. I have always worked with children in some capacity in my local church, i.e.; Sunday School teacher, Purity Class, Children’s Church, and the Youth Department. Because I was a young woman coming into the knowledge of Christ, I was also involved in the Women’s Department and Young Women’s Christian Council.
Currently I attend Holy Tabernacle Church of God In Christ, located in Bridgeport, Connecticut where Bishop Ivory W. Holden is my Pastor and the Prelate of the Jurisdiction of Vermont. Here I have served as President of the Youth Department, President of the Young Women’s Christian Council and a member of the Children’s Church Staff. I am also a licensed Evangelist Missionary of the Church of God in Christ.
Since my first book has been published and I began to travel, I relinquished my auxiliary leadership responsibilities to someone who can better serve the people in our church, but I am still a member of the Children’s Church Staff and a member of our Women’s Department where I continue to serve faithfully.
I reside in Bridgeport, Connecticut with three of my four children; three sons ages 26, 22 and 20, and my daughter age 11.
Interests: Introducing people to Christ and encouraging them through the God inspired pen, as well as promoting literacy.
