I use to question what my purpose was in life. There were many days that I cried trying to figure it all out. I lost myself by trying to please everyone and pouring so much into others. I ended up depleted with nothing left to give. I had to figure out what I wanted out of life and reinvent myself. I had to make sacrifices and life-changing decisions that were going to affect everyone. I lost a lot and eventually gained more than what I had before. Not materialistically or financially but spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. I found a peace of mind that was worth more than any prized possessions or relationships.
I now realize that my purpose in life is to help, educate, inspire, motivate, and encourage other women. To remind you to always have hope and never lose faith especially during the midst of a storm. I wanted to bring awareness to narcissistic personality disorder and abuse. In doing so, I needed to become vulnerable and share my story. You are not alone. We all have a story to tell. Remember to let go and let God. He covered me. God did for me and he will do it for you too.
Through It All I'm Still Standing
This is a story about experiencing love, abuse, loss, strength, endurance, faith, and deliverance. It’s about feeling like all hope is lost but remembering to have faith because there is a God that will cover you and see you through. I pray my book will help someone that is dealing with divorce, loss, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, PTSD, illness, or abuse. I want to help those who have dealt with these issues and are possibly still stuck in a bad place. I want you to know there is hope, happiness, and prosperity after it all! There is life to live after it all! I experienced all of this and more. By the grace of God, Through It All I’m Still Standing! You will too!
The yellow lotus flower on the book cover is symbolic of my personal growth. The flower grows in deep mud, far away from the sun. But eventually, it reaches the light becoming the most beautiful flower ever. The flower is seen in different cultures as a symbol of purity, enlightenment, and rebirth. I felt this flower is truly a representation of me! I’ve been dragged through the dirtiest and muddiest of all waters (life), but through it all, it made me a better, selfless, strong, and beautiful woman who stands tall in every sense of the word.
There's Something I Need To Tell You All... Mommy Has Cancer
This is a story about a woman in her early thirties being diagnosed with cancer. She is married with three children who suddenly felt like her world had just turned upside down.

Prayer gave her the strength to push through and to continue having faith that everything would be ok. Through it all, she ends up feeling blessed, highly favored, and a SURVIVOR in more ways than one.
