About Life's Pearls
The gift of writing inspirational words is the vein that has flowed through my life - flushing out impurities and bringing in fresh perspectives. For over 25 years, my poetry has captured the essence of special moments with flashes of inspiration to encourage you to Hope On...
Residing in Maryland, I have created custom poetry for both private individuals, public events and celebrations throughout Maryland. Her poetic journey started with the publication of inspirational poetry in National Black Child Development Institute calendars from 1991 through 2009. “Just Being You is the Right Thing" was featured in An Activity Book for African American Families: Helping Children Cope with Crisis. The Guide was sponsored by Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development, US Dept. of Health & Human Services, National Institutes of Health and National Black Child Development Institute and other national organizations.
My book, Life's Pearls - Wisdom for a Meaningful Life, is a self-help collection of inspirational poems, quotes and stories with a foreword by renowned motivational author & speaker, Les Brown. Life's Pearls seeks to bring out the inner beauty of everyone by encouraging them to look inside to celebrate their beauty and to recognize their true value.
Several of my poems have been featured at Black History Poetry slams at Bonnie Branch Middle School for seven years and other schools and churches throughout the area.
