Tell us a little about yourself. I am a born again Christian. I am a motivated woman who loved to be challenged. I love to teach and influenced others. My deepest desire is to work with children to teach them values and self worth. When values and self worth are entwined the results are amazing.
What was your motivation behind this project? What motivates me to write this book followed after the first one is to emphasized the importance of keeping the family together. Once families are kept together history will maintain its purpose. Regardless of what life dished out there should be a reminder that the 'fabric of family ties' can never be worn out. If that is realized, it makes no difference how weak the link is, it can be strengthened; as long as it is not broken.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? Instil family values. Return to our Creator; believing that 'faith can move mountain' Technology is very important to a nation and its occupants but history should not be swept under the rug or lost in the 'traffic of time and technology.' We must be reminded that 'yesteryear is the hinges on which tomorrow's doors are hanging.' Our history must be maintained.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I went to my home of origin and was asked to speak at a children's day conference, and many of the ten and seventeen year olds did not understand some of my illustrations that I knew about from the same school that I went to. At the close of my speech I dedicate my first book to them, as there were three high schools combined. I left the conference overwhelmed by the lack of experience the students has in certain areas of their curriculum. I re-emphasized the importance of having God in their lives, as He is the Greatest Director anyone could hoped for.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My influences came from spending quality time in the presence of God. My sources of inspiration came from removing ALL distractions, tv. phones, radio, and people. We must be still and listen and recognize God's voice. The Holy Spirit teaches me when to do and not to do, and I tried to obey. Habakkuk 2 vs:1-2 I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved, And the Lord answered me and said; "Write the Vision.........."
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: The pain it causes me when we who called ourselves children of God and we do nothing about the many wrong things that overwhelmed our society. We are so afraid to open our mouth and talk about God for fear of what may happened to us. When He said speak boldly we tend to shut up or whisper behind close doors. God must be worshiped in Spirit and in Truth. Yet we are afraid to speak His Truth. He Paid the price at Calvary, I don't OWE no body Nothing, For Christ I live, for Christ I die. I will speak His Truth until my GOD said come on home. None of my books may not make it to the Best Seller List. But I am Grounded Firm and Deep in my Savior's Love. I Glory in the Cross.
