I've spent over 20 years as an educational leader in public education in the United States and abroad. About 6 years ago, my joy for public education began to diminish. I begin to lose the fulfillment it once provided. I became restless, unsatisfied, and honestly, unhappy. I desperately desired peace. I felt like God was calling me to do something different. But my desire to teach and share my life experiences was still there. I actually became a teacher because of public education trauma. I wanted to be an educator that was ready to embrace every child that I came in contact with...the exact opposite of what happened to me when I was child. For over 20 years I did just that, even seeking a Doctorate in Social Justice in Education to equip me with the knowledge and skill possible to service underprivileged children. While extremely sick with COVID, I felt God telling me to write. I was very excited to write, as I had so many positive and successful stories about my career as an educator. But I couldn't seem to get going putting those words on paper. Then I felt another stirring inside, encouraging me to write about the trauma in my life, as a way to help other people that may experience the same obstacles as I. By God's grace, I wrote and published my first book, I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me That, and shortly afterwards, My Messages Ministries was established. Now one of my biggest passions is sharing my story with others and praying that others will be blessed by its messages. Sharing my stories energizes me the same way teaching did twenty-five years ago. However, my jewelry and fashion design is where I am mostly at peace, so in addition to My Messages, I wish you Shalom, as you search through my jewelry and fashion designs.

If you or anyone you know have experienced childhood (or adult) trauma such as molestation, discrimination, physical abuse, abandonment, or similar, I strongly urge you to read my book, I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me That, or invite me to your church or small group and listen to my seminars about healing through the grace and mercy of God.
