1. At what point in your life did you decide to start writing and become an author? Tell us about your books. I started writing at the lowest low of my life, my world was shattered, I had lost everything and I wanted to die! Out of my pain, God told me to spill the pain out on the pages. So, I began to write, and as I wrote, God healed me and birthed my first book, “How I Survived”.2. You are the Founder and President of Mary’s Ministry International a women’s ministry used to bring inner healing, support and encouragement to women. Tell us how you got this started and what inspired you to start this?What is Mary's Ministry InternationalI launched Mary's Ministry International November 4, 2020. It's a women's ministry that has been in my belly for about 4 years.Mary's Ministry is a safe and confidential forum for women to share the issues of their heart and receive sound biblical principles, healing insight and deliverance in every area of their life. Oftentimes women carry a lot on their hearts and need someone to talk to but don't know who. Eventually we talk to someone because our hearts get so heavy that it leaks out, and sometimes to the wrong people and in the wrong places. So God told me to create a space where the issues of the woman's heart can be released and they in return can receive godly strategy and principles and healing from God. 3. You are an advocate of justice along with being a mother, an inspirational speaker and an entrepreneur. What inspired you to become an advocate of justice? My advocacy for justice is my internal compass to see everyone healed, free and living their lives authentically. There is just something in me that struggles to be silent with matters of inequality or injustice in any magnitude. I wish I could really tell you the origin of this passion, but maybe it’s simply my love for people.5. You have businesses. What is one thing you wish you would have known when starting any of your businesses? I wish I would have known that there are no perfect business owners, and that business owners are your every day men and women that just put actions to their dreams, just went for it and didn’t give up. So never think that those who you see out there in the lime light are any more special than me or you! We all are special and we all can be great!6. What nuggets or advice would you like to give to our readers? My nugget is something that I heard this past year in sermon: Trust that whatever thing that God put you on this earth to do, you can do it! The mere fact that God is asking it of you is evidence that you can do it!
