In a mission statement for my life 15 years ago I wrote this statement: “My heart is turned strongly toward evangelism. I want to use all of my God-given gifts in music, drama, counseling and administration to evangelize a lost and dying world.” (I can now add the gift of teaching and writing, which I struggled to receive.) In 1995 through the loss of my only sister, God called me back to the east coast to continue my journey. Through much suffering and loss I have learned to be content in all things, to persevere, and to love through reaching out with much compassion to those who are hurting. One of the greatest lessons learned on this journey, is of God’s faithfulness…He has never left me nor forsaken me in all my circumstances. Born to a father who was a Pastor and a grandfather who was a Presiding Elder in the A.M.E. Zion church, I grew up in the church. And though I left the traditional church in my college years, I never left the search for Truth. After some years of struggles and stumblings, God revealed His Son and I received salvation. My journey of 26 years has led to service in different capacities within the church:Music Ministry: psalmist, praise and worship member & leader
