Hello friends and family. I wanted to share some of what I'm feeling tonight. I had a book-signing today at Car Wash West In West Monroe. It was great, and I am so blessed to have so many friends and family who love me and support me. I am really missing my little boy tonight, I guess the fact that I've spent so much time lately doing interviews, and talking about my book and telling people that its my story of my abusive relationship that led to the death of my son, that it all just hit me again. I had a 6 year old son who I loved more than life itself and I let a man walk into my life and abuse us to the point that I couldn't get out therefore letting him take him away from me for good. I miss him so much and it just kills me to think about these poor kids that are living in these situations. All they want is somebody to love them and take care of them and they can't help the decisions that their parents make, but they are the ones that suffer for it. Its been almost 20 years since my sons death and its just as real to me today as it was then. I don't how many people have visited my blog and don't know how many people will, I just want every person out there, man, woman, teenager, young adult, no matter who you are to realize that we live our lives by the choices we make and good or bad you are going to have consequences of those mistakes. You not only hurt yourself, your hurt your parents, your family, your children, and all of those who love you. It so easy to go along with the crowd, and so hard to do whats right when temptation comes our way, but Oh the joy we will have in knowing that we made a good choice and we reaped blessings instead of cursings as the bible says in Deut. 28. Please think about what you're choices before you make them and if they don't line up with Gods word, STOP, TURN, and live the life that God abundantly gives us to live.

Hello everyone, God is really doing some wonderful things in my life right now. I had an awesome interview with Rick Godley this morning on The Hill, 100.9. He made it so easy to share my story and well he just helped me to feel comfortable. You know thats not easy to do when you're on national radio or TV for that matter. I do feel like the interview went well, and I pray that some ladies were not only enlightened but able to make some decisions as well. I'll be doing a book-signing at the Cafe Expresso/Car Wash West in the morning. Hoping to see how many people come that heard the interview. I know abuse is not something people enjoy talking about, and I certainly don't want to bring up bad memories but the issue is very serious and widespread and does need to be addressed. So many women don't know what to look for in a potential abuser, and teenagers are facing the same thing. The more we educate people, the more we can help to keep it from happening. So far not many people as far as I know have visited my website, or my blog. I do apologize for not posting more than I have, I've just been very busy. I promise I will try to do better. I will be posting a copy of my interview with Rick as soon as I get in my email. Please feel free to leave comments and let me know you stopped by. God bless.
