Have you ever just sat and asked yourself, “How did I end up in this field?” Doing what I am doing? Hmm, that is a loaded question. I am willing to bet many of us have asked that same questions at one point in our lives. Well, here’s how I ended up in the field of work I am and doing what I am doing, it was not by choice, but rather destiny by default! In order to go forward, we must first venture back into my past. I must admit, it may not be a joyful journey, but I guarantee it will validate my inspiring career today!
Growing up in Southern California was not as pretty as some imagine it to be. At least for me, it wasn’t. My childhood experiences include things NO child should ever have to experience or endure! Things like sexual assault, alcoholism, academic failure, the death of my mother, homelessness, and more! However, from the time I was eight years old, I knew what I wanted to do. I desired to open a homeless shelter for women and children so no other child would have to experience what my mother, siblings, and I did.
Fast forward many years later, I would always find myself encouraging my friends, co-workers, and those referred to me for advice. Fast forward another decade, and to my complete surprise, I am a published author of the book “I Know It Was the Blood: A Story of Overcoming,” in which I share some of those painful childhood experiences. I’m also a successful five-time playwright of stage plays that are real-life relatable, hysterically funny, compelling, ministry-made, and prayer-packed, and I’m a motivational speaker; guess of what? You guessed it, encouraging women! Oh, and I am still working towards opening those homes for women and children!
Thanks for asking! Now, share how you ended up doing the job your doing. Perhaps someone will be encouraged by our stories!
