Have you ever wanted to share your experiences through the written word?  Write an article?  Complete a book?  Compose a short story?

I would like to help you heal, through the art of writing.  There is a therapeutic quality in writing, that can help 
us learn, forgive and grow.

Join me in "Starting Over", a program designed to help you tap into your ability to heal from within, while writing it all out.

You may take the online workshop, where lessons are delivered via email - or join me at a live workshop this Spring.

I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 3:14


"Brother, I count not myself to have apprehended, but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind but reaching forth to those things which are before."  
                         --Philippians 3:13

I was a motherless child, separated from her at the age of 3. I never saw my brother again and I had an
on-and-off again relationship with my sister "my mother's daughter", may she RIP.  I was abused emotionally, physically and sexually for years.

Why am
I writing about this?  Because, Jesus was with me and He kept me through it all.  When I didn't love myself He loved me.  He loved me in spite of all my faults. When I was not able to mentally go on, He held me.  Sometimes I could literally feel the comfort of His loving arms around me. I pray that my story will help other Survivors with their healing, and give them the strength to know they can make it through it all!
