Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.


I have been writing poetry since high school. The first poem I wrote was a mother’s day poem in the 3rd grade. I have been fortunate to have two poetry collections published. The first being “Life Through Celestial Lenses” and the second “The Darkness, The Light , And The Glory. My purpose is to inspire and share God’s love through poetry.
