I was inspired by motherhood to be who I am
I held a newborn baby yesterday. A sweet itty bitty, curled up newborn. If I had been alone with him, I would have sniffed his head, and pulled off his socks to look at his itty bitty toes.
I honestly can't remember in the eleven years since Christopher was born if I've held another baby. Not because I didn't want to, but the opportunity never presented itself.
I thought that by this time in life, I'd have three kids of my own and motherhood would be my life.
I wanted motherhood to be my life because up until then, I didn't know what else I could be.
It wasn't until I was in the throws of motherhood that I said, this isn't it. This isn't all that I'm meant to be.

I AM MY BRAND. I AM THE GENRE THAT I WRITE.
The Christopher Chronicles series just happens to be my 1st published work.
I didn't know by this time in my life, I would have published anything.
With this third time's a charm release, I am praying for the solid foundation to build my authorship and become all that I'm meant to be.
My latest book will be available in just a few weeks and is available for pre-order now.
When I was just 10 years old, I thought that by this time in life, I'd be an author.
But really, I had no idea it would be my truth.
