About the Book

It was at this new church, Lakeside Outreach Ministries that my life really took a turn. I had so many times since my son passed, kept asking God the question, “why”? I found my answer here. I met so many wonderful people who had so much pain and grief and illnesses in their lives, but, they never lost their faith in God. I began to write about my Pastor, Pastor Kenny Griffin and his church and his people, and when I did, I seen their pain, I felt their suffering. I cannot explain, but, people, even strangers began asking me to write about their loved one who had departed, and then come back to tell me how much the poem had meant to them. This had become my calling, this is what God wanted me to do, and as it became more and more widespread, my involvement with Jesus became more and more, the words were coming so fast, the insight I was seeing, only God knew what was happening to me. I would be nothing, nor would there be any written poetry without God, for when I sit down to write, I say a prayer to God, saying, “God, please give me the words to write, and He always would. That is why I call my book of poetry, GOD SPOKE/I WROTE.
