Growing Up Sassafras: Where is My Daddy

Wisdom and love from grandparents. This is a different kind
of family story! It is one that most never hear of in public, but
so many families experience in private. Often we read and hear
the testimonies about the determination of a strong mother or
grandmother that guided her family along, through the pain and
sorrow, no money, no education and no hope. Yet, with much
wisdom and determination, made it and so did her children.
Grandmother Mildred is that character in this book, but she is on
the different side, she is standing back watching her daughter’s
emotional turmoil erupt in her granddaughter’s life. It is about
the best for your child, every child. To have the love, care and
support of a parents and family, believing for hope and healing
for every child!

Emergence of Me: Discovering My Identity and the Courage Within

To inspire boldness in a person’s walk with the Lord by sharing my story. It was a story that I was afraid to write and afraid to even unearth in my head. As I continued to grow in Christ, I began to understand just how important it is to understand exactly who we are and what we have been called to do in this life that God has blessed us to live. Ask, believe, speak, and begin to watch your life change once your mind begins to change. Your change will come with your changed thoughts, and what you then allow to enter your mind and come out of your mouth. Our words have now formed our world known as our current life. Our change can begin by guarding our thoughts and what we allow to seep out of our mouth, escaping into the atmosphere and mixing with unbelief. We must come to believe that God not only has us, but He has the best for us, even before our feet hit the ground. If you fall, roll over, get back up, and do it again and again and again. We are enough!
