Mother of eight children and thirteen grandchildren. I have a degree in early childhood education. I have been working with kids my entire life and am the oldest of a family of twelve. I have been writing poems since I was a little girl. This work is an extension of my life experience as a mother and teacher, exhorter and encourager. It is also a legacy to be passed on to my children. I give thanks to God for the gifting and talent he has given me. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing and composing this book.
