For what is it your time?

For over a decade, I have fought against the notion that I’m not good enough.  As a stay at home Mom, and wannabe author and very part-time speaker, if you named it, I felt like I didn’t have it— experience, graduate education, know-how, accolades, awards, degrees.   As a woman in the Christian Speaking World, […]

Getting out of the place called doubt

The first time I stepped foot on Haitian soil was in June, 2012 with my then 15 y/o son.  He’s returned every summer since.  Now, he’s a High School Graduate, and I’m […]
