  1. I know that pain and I am thankful that you were able to turn it into purpose. I feel stuck myself, I have all of my writing sitting next to me and don’t know where to start, but because of your story I know I just have to start, thank you for your testimony!

    • Tap into your courage. Keep writing so that when you are ready your stories will be a gift to the world. You can fictionalize the characters and places. It doesn’t have to be a memoir. Keep writing, your voice deserves to be heard!💜

  2. What a beautiful story. It really blessed me. I could relate to it on many levels. I am an author, I write stage plays, I live 5 minutes from St. Louis in IL. I would love to meet you one day.

  3. Wow, wow, wow! I’m sorry for the pain and suffering you had to go through, but I am so happy for your growth and willingness to help others. I have gone through something very similar! But to keep this short, I live in Chicago but I have only been back a week after seeing one of my short stories made into a short social justice film. The story scene through the eyes of an eight year old child who experiences racism for the first time. The plan is to use it as an educational resource. As they say, it’s in the can! My novel that is the source of this short story will be ready to be published some time in 2023. I would so love to communicate with you. As they say, there are no accidents.💜

  4. Wonderful story!!! Moral of the story…When you feel like your life is in a valley or under dirt, always know that the seed can only grow while it is covered under the dirt.

  5. “Out of the ashes spring beauty” Do I hear a movie? Such an amazing story! Continue to allow God’s Holy Spirit to surprise you will even more gifts and opportunities! I am godly proud to be your sister!

  6. To God b the Glory!!! “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

  7. Omgoodness! This sounds like me. I write but never published. I applaud you for stepping out on faith and following your passion through your pain! Wow! God is so faithful!

  8. Sounds so similar except GOD took my daughter and I out of a domestic violence situation. It was hard but I was able to heal enough to let another man into our lives who treated me like a queen. We were together for 25 years before he died but I still cherish the memories we made.

  9. A beautiful and touching story, you are on top of the world 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽. Still the best is yet to come, you are very talented and gifted. Thank you for sharing!

  10. Thank you for sharing your story. Very touching and raw. What’s the name of the publishing company? I recently started me own in 2020. First book on track to release December 2022 or January 2023.

  11. What an incredible story of how life’s obstacles can turn around and become stepping stones to a better. Thank you for being so open with your journey.

  12. What the devil meant for bad God meant it for your God. The courage and strength you have shown in facing the truth about your marriage and yourself is admirable. It is clear that you have accomplished some amazing things, but woman of God – God is not through with you yet. I look forward to seeing what God will birth through you next.
