Book Launch Information

Thank you so much for being a part of my story.  This book or my yes would have never happened without so many of you joining me in this journey. So, thank you. I value your friendship and thank God for each of you. Writing this book was an act of obedience for me. So with that in mind, no matter what happens in terms of success or failure, my goal is to glorify Jesus. Please pray with me that people are inspired to say yes to God!
