Introducing: Six Years And A Quarter Way Through


I’ve always believed the greatest pains give birth to the most beautiful things. Like a coal under pressure, a woman in labor, and the crucifixion of Jesus, all birth life’s greatest treasures. Two years ago during a time in my life where I was determined to remain faithful though undeniably in distress, I began writing my debut novel, Six Years And A Quarter Way Through. What started off as a means to alleviate my burdened spirit turned into my greatest joy. Twenty Years after I first said I would, I was writing a book; A book, which loosely tells my story while encouraging other young believers to stay the course no matter the difficulty.

Get Back UP!!


My five-year-old niece is an adventurous leader. Before she could walk she ran, which made for a lot of falling. Sometimes she got right back up but other times she needed to be picked up, dusted off, and set back on her feet. There was one time in particular when she wasn’t being careful while walking down the stairs, she fell- hard. She got up but slowly feeling the pain of the tumble. Hours after the fall it became clear my niece was more hurt than we thought. Glory be to God, at the doctor’s office it was determined she was fine; with rest she would be as good as new. And she has been: she’s bright, beautiful, precocious, and a great spiritual lesson; we all fall down but we must get back up.
