When you listen to this interview, keep in mind that it takes more than a two-year-old hopping in my lap begging for candy or a storm in New York to stop me from making my segment a success!
Towards the end, Don kicks a poem for me. That inspired me, and I had to share my poetic inclinations. You’ll get a sneak peak at the poem that can be found at the end of my short story “Like Father, Like Son” from the anthology The Soul Of A Man.

I remember when I was a child I would complete my work and commence to harassing everyone else that hadn’t. As a result my mother would be contacted, and I would be reprimanded for my mischief. Eventually my mother grew weary of the constant phone calls, so she instructed my teachers to send me to the library. Thus my love for reading began.
I believe mother is a verb. It’s something you do not just who you are. I learned this lesson the hard way. The Ministry of Motherhood is my journey on the path we call motherhood: the ups, the downs, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I’d like to share with you my labor of love and dedication to make sure that others don’t follow my path. Initially, I will share with you my angst upon finding out I was pregnant. Telling my mother was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
In Chapter three you will discover the parallels between modern day single mothers and those in the Bible.Â As the book progresses, the latter chapters deal with my adaptation to motherhood and the implied tenets of ministry. Each one of these episodes give you a look inside my heart my soul my very being. You will find me sharing and digging deeper in myself for those nuggets of wisdom.
I use biblical scripture and â€˜thus sayeth the Lord’ dictates to guide me. It’s the ministry fundamentality that propels the outreach gesture so that you may be mindful of doing the right thing. This is what this book is all about.
