Are you feeling scorched today?

It’s been hot, here in Chicago this summer. Currently, we are in the middle of the summers heat; temperatures are well into the nineties. The warmth rises from the depths of the ground.

Spring… .Summer…. Autumn….

I sit at the table this morning, the screen door open to enjoy fresh air. I’m listening to the birds sing and fluttering all around. It’s was a late start to spring, and now summer is near end.

Genesis… the beginning

While writing Forever Hope, (released February 13, 2020 on Amazon), it was evident God wanted me to share my story. It’s raw, real, simple and to the point. I will admit, there was a bit of arguing with God while writing the manuscript over those twelve months. I didn’t mind sharing the facts, but theContinue reading “Genesis… the beginning”

Forever Hope ~ Launch February 2020

It’s quite exciting to launch a new book. In less than two years, I wrote my “story”. A story where the “genesis” (new beginnings) began. A place where an insecure, girl came to know the promises of Jesus Christ. The One who kept me safe. Taught me how to live, what to stay away from,Continue reading “Forever Hope ~ Launch February 2020”
