What provoked the initiation and contents of this book?
Life! Various experiences that continuously left me heartbroken lead me to write. Expressing those feelings on paper and realizing how relatable some of these events were pushed me to share. I believe God plans to use my transparency to expedite healing for others. Many times when you go through painful situations you feel alone. I wanted to provide an outlet to journal one’s own thoughts after reading through mine.
What do you hope to achieve by releasing your book?
I hope to not only provide an avenue for healing but also self improvement. It is so easy to point fingers at others and explain how wrong they are in a situation. Rarely does anyone want to take ownership and humbly ask for forgiveness for their mistakes. I hope through my truth others can pinpoint their flaws and begin to move in a direction of growth.
