I started writing poetry in the seventh grade as a way of expressing through writing, what I was unable to verbally articulate. It has been a growing process as well as a healing process as I travel lifes journey. I wrote for me and would sometimes share with family and friends. July, 2010 My first book of poetry and inspirational writings was published. I've had poetry publishe in Anthology books in the past. God finally spoke to my heart and said it's time to share with others and step outside your comfort zone. Through The Storms was born and published because of my obedience. My hope in others reading my writings is that they are encouraged, healed and find the peace I've found as I've journeyed and come Through The Storms.
