About the author
It is truly an honor to have experienced the privilege of writing this book. Nothing has been so determined or directional. The greatness of words reflects mind and life. The notion for writing this book first came from the mouth of one of my children. Understanding the true gift and pleasure of writing came as I put paper and pencil to this idea. I've written ever since. Writing comes from deep within. It's a coil of value, morality and spirit. The invisibleness to which my heart sees is no more invisible. Thank you, Heavenly Father. Here I am Lord! I have pivoted back and forth about this book for years. The fear of exposure, judgment and repercussion of action kept me away from speaking about this matter. Honestly there is still a little apprehension inside of me as I wonder how people will react to my journey. My strength comes as I give myself over to the hands and will of God. God be with me through self-preservation!
