I was inspired by the Lord to vent my pains through writing. So while facing the challenges of life storms oneday I picked up the pen in obediance to God and began writing. It became an outlet for me and over the years I began sharing my work with others. I was encouraged by a friend to put it into a book so this is what I did. It started off "Expressions From the Heart-Vol I and II then I learned there were books out there with a similiar title. So I changed it to "Healing Through Poetry". Which has been recently released and is now in bookstores around the world.
