Introduction I've been writing for as long as I can remember, beginning with poetry. I started writing as a form of "therapy," using words on paper and in print to express what I didn't quite know how to say verbally. Over the years, my love for writing evolved, moving away from poetry and into web development and subsequently, this blog. I'm currently working on one, two or maybe three books. God has inspired me with so many ideas, that it's difficult to focus on one, so often I find myself working on several projects simultaneously. I have a story to tell - a testimony - and by the grace of God, that story will be completed and published. Whether the story will unfold by way of poetry, novel or something else, only time will tell. And since with God, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26), don't be surprised if you see more than one work out soon!
