Storyteller. Speaker. Spiritual Director.
I believe that writing is both mirror and medicine for the human soul. I share words and works to help people heal, grow, and flourish as God’s image-bearer.
A contemplative at heart, I am also a storyteller and spiritual director in the Ignatian tradition. My work intersects where God’s story meets our story. My mission is to use all that God has given me to help others discover and experience God’s love, grace, and mercy through Christ Jesus. My vision is to inspire humans to live as bold, balanced, beautiful creations of God. My folks are humans who may be broken but not bitter, who may be bitter but want to be better, who may be hurting but not hopeless, who may be hopeless but want to be hopeful. Anyone who wants to meet God at the well.
I obtained my Master of Divinity from Wesley Theology Seminary and am working on my Doctor of Ministry at Boston University. I also have a Master of Creative Writing from Goddard College and a Master of Sacred Theology from Drew University. In 2009, I started a blog, Love Speaks Daily. That blog has expanded to a ministry whose purpose is to share God’s love by magnifying the transformative word and work of Christ Jesus.
I have been wordsmithing and storytelling since my sixth-grade English teacher taught me the power of words. To pay the bills, I have maintained a 20+ year career in communications, training, and administration. I was born and raised in the AME Church, gave my life to Christ at eight years old, and I am still a member of that church located in rural South Carolina. In all that I do, I remain passionately Christian and compassionately interfaith.
