I'm a published multi-award-winning author with devotions appearing on the ChristianDevotions.US website as well as the CBN.com website. I'm a contributing author in the Starr Ayers/Stephanie Pavlantos book "Room at the Table." I'm currently working on my first novel and am assembling a book of inspirational scripture-based short stories along with moral, personal, family, and comical stories.
I'm the founder and director of H.O.P.E. Ministries in Candler, NC. While operating primarily as a food ministry, we also provide backpacks, Easter baskets, and Christmas shoebox gifts to crisis pregnancy centers, domestic violence shelters, schools, government agencies, and other ministries for their clients and families. We also provide disaster relief and aid for unwed mothers and their children.
I'm also a born-again Christian and former Independent Missionary Baptist pastor.
I love driving, writing, helping people, and making folks laugh and feel better every chance I get. I take Jesus, my faith, and others seriously, but never take myself too seriously. I can laugh at myself, and I'm also an eternal optimist. I have little tolerance for pessimists and stupid people. The latter, because I've been one on numerous occasions. Life is too short to be negative.
