Hello there! Thank you for taking an interest in getting to learn a little more about me. For starters, I am a Bay Area native and I continue to reside in the beautiful state of California with my three daughters. Having grown up in Silicon Valley, I guess it makes sense that I spent all of my twenties, right into my thirties, working in corporate America before deciding to turn a new leaf. So why did I pick up blogging, of all things? Well, here is the short version of my story.
In one of my previous roles I worked as an Administrative Assistant in the solar industry until I was laid off in late 2016. While many of my colleagues felt sorry for me, I knew that it would probably be one of the best things that ever happened to me. I was 7 months pregnant at the time so quite honestly, I was very very tired. Not only did I find myself constantly out of breath while walking around the office but every day on that job felt like a character building excercise, making those years some of the most challenging in my life. Challenging though they were, it was a necessary part of my journey.
After months of praying and wondering what I was going to do with my life after I had the baby, I knew I was running out of excuses for not using my gift. I started writing poetry at nine years old but once adulthood came, all of its wonderful responsibilities began to keep me busy around the clock and I hardly had the time or energy to write. Sudden sparks of inspiration enabled me to produce a few good pieces here and there but after a very discouraging experience behind the mic, I put the pen down and convinced myself that I wasn’t as good as I thought I was. Thankfully my family and friends continued to see in me what I could no longer see in myself and they never stopped reminding me of who I was in Christ. After a few years of listening to them tell me the same thing over and over again, I finally started to believe them so here I am, ready to pursue my destiny and starting a blog just makes sense (click here to read about the purpose of my blog).
While it’s true that I’ve been writing for about 20 years now, I humbly admit that I’ve got a lot of learning to do. Even still, I have chosen to share my gift by sharing the hope of the gospel with a hopeless and dying world. I pray that I might say something that will encourage and compel you to familiarize yourself with the Bible, causing you to move past the basic truths of the Word so that you might stumble upon the more profound truths embedded therein. Ultimately, my hope is that you will step back from the milk and develop an appetite for the meat, thus bringing you into more intimate fellowship with Christ.
Be blessed and happy reading!
