Hello everyone, thanks for visiting my website.

First I will tell you a little about my Career-life:

I’m a writing mentor, editor, author, and teacher. I’ve taught many courses at churches in the metro Detroit area. I’ve taught creative and structured writing, grammar, essay, and other Language arts courses. I’ve incorporated free writing classes to teach high school that have included: journaling, essay, college prep, the five-paragraph, research papers, and going beyond the standard high school essay.

I’ve taught many subjects and have worked with thousands of people from different backgrounds and parts of the world. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in English and a minor in History. I also have an Associate degree in Liberal Arts.

I’ve worked as an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Instructor for many years and have taught grammar, reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation and have trained students to take standardized tests for business placement and college examinations.

I’ve taught English to automotive execs and managers at corporations here in Detroit: General Motors, Ford, Nissan, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota.

I’ve taught numerous children and have accumulated many jobs throughout the years.


I’ve written well over 500 articles. My guest posts have been featured in Christianity Today, the Southern Writers Magazine, the Breathe Conference website, the Salonpas blog, and the Suite T blog among other places.

I’m the author of the best-selling books, Not Without God: A Story of Survival and Not Without God: Hope In the Storm.

I’ve been an active member of writer’s groups both offline and online and have developed, “Writing Because I Can’t Not Write Group – For seasoned and aspiring authors.” I created it in August of 2022. We meet on zoom every Friday and share our writing. Each person brings two to three pages for expert feedback and editing. Some members just join. We are also a networking group, so the majority come and don’t bring any material.

I only special feature award-winning and best-selling authors or speakers. If you have an interest in writing, want to write a book, or simply want to gain more exposure for your brand or books, make sure to contact me so I can get you started: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100085121127473&mibextid=LQQJ4d

Keep in mind…

God loves you. He loves you because you are you, his child.

He loves you the way you are, grace is not earned—it is freely given. If grace were given to us because of our works we would not earn it. 

God is able to pull you out of your past so that you can live fully in the present.

There is no greater time than now to turn our lives around. At times the path will not be an easy one.

When you follow God, it isn’t always a “live your best life” kind of path at times it will be difficult. You may even suffer hardship and rejection from friends.

Following Jesus is not a one-time-event; he is continually molding and shaping. It will be worth it in the end.

I’m passionate about my faith and friends. Having a relationship with God through conversation and prayer is important.

After being hit by a car while trying to cross the street on my way to school at just sixteen years old, I became paralyzed.

It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk. I use crutches (the kind with the rings around the arms) and hope to one day walk without them. Some doctors predicted I would never walk after my accident, so the progress I have made is good.

Thanks for visiting my page,

  2. I enjoyed reading your testimony. I have always believed that the things in which we go through in life is never about us. God allowed us to go through it for His purpose. I also believe that those storms we face builds us in Christ. At the end of your story we become healed from it, which makes it medicine for the next person we meet that will becoming down that same path we just walked on.

    The bible says in Revelation 12:11, ” And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” And I see that you are doing just that. May you never stop doing it. I pray that God continue to give you boldness.

    Be blessed my sister.
