Erika D. Newton grew up in the Western Edition of San Francisco, California. As a child of the 80’s, Erika unwillingly began to collect experiences that should have never been garnered by a child. Those same experiences pushed and pressed their way into her adulthood, but the story doesn’t end there.
Erika has used her past as a launching pad into her beaming present and illustrious future. She is an Author, Floetic Lyricist/Songwriter who is truly inspired by God Himself. She ministers with vision and passion so that others may be lifted up, inspired and encouraged.
With a heart for the youth, she is an active member of NewBirth Church in Pittsburg, CA, where she has served as a teacher for ‘Pre-Ignite’, a curriculum based Pre-Teen Youth ministry. She is currently working on releasing a Floetic music cd as a tribute to Jesus Christ – exalting His Name & honoring Him using the musical talents He has so graciously given her.
As a testament of God’s faithfulness and divine healing, Erika’s goal is to allow God to use her to minister His Word in multiple mediums. She looks forward to writing more poetry, short stories and stage plays that will tug at the hearts of those who are lost and teetering precariously on the edge of hopelessness.
Erika currently lives in Northern, CA and has four children and three grandchildren.
