The Journey

The mission of my ministry is to help adults suffering from addiction, pain, and abuse. I have grown to include reaching out to our youth, where I am reading stories to them. Being an agent of HOPE, it is my hope that if I’m able to plant GOOD seeds in our youth—our future, today, when they’re 9, then maybe, just maybe, I won’t have to visit them when they’re in jail, prison, or drug court when they’re 29, 39, or 59.

I want to offer people an alternative when they find themselves under attack and supply them with my ministry’s products as they pursue their NEW journey.

When I came to myself several months later, I realized what I had done, and I was disappointed with myself. I was determined to find out WHAT just happened and WHY I would make such a choice.

I spoke to my mentor and friend, Dr. Paschal Baute, who encouraged me to write about the experience. I wrote my first story, “Getting High, Why? Since then I have written over 60 short stories. READ MORE
