Bienvenue (Welcome) to my Blog #1
Let's Talk About It!
Thanks for checking out my blog! My goal is to give you an up-close and personal view of growing up in poverty. I plan to blog about my own life and the lives of others. I would like to invite you to comment and share your experiences.
I would like to hear your stories. I believe that the world needs to hear your stories. There are many voices talking about poverty and yet, many people do not understand what it means to LIVE in and with poverty. Share your stories with us. Your stories are important.
In my book, _Once There Was a Girl: A Memoir, I share my story of growing up in abject poverty and surrounded by crime. The theme of my story is that you are NOT your circumstances or your environment. Also, I would love to have you share how you overcame or are overcoming living in poverty. Thanks. I appreciate you!
"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes, He became poor, that you through his poverty might become rich." (II Corinthians 8:9)
I love to take long daily walks. During these long walks, I pray, I listen and I think.
