Inside Her Soul captivates a poetic story of a woman who struggles with her identity and how she finds her place of beauty, freedom and wholeness. I share a lot of my story in this poetic work and how I overcame the struggle of insecurity, low self-esteem, emotional and mental abuse and promiscuity. I found Christ through my chaos. I tell my testimony to empower and encourage women to embrace their authentic beauty. I have a journaling section in the book that allows women who read my book to journal about their aha moments and answer the reflection questions I provide.
How did you come up with the ideas for this book? What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?
I always loved writing poetry. A few years back, I discovered that God wanted me to use my writing to empower women around the world. I know since I struggled with my identity and have overcome the struggle, it was my vision and calling to empower and encourage women everywhere to do the same. The most difficult aspect of writing this book was allowing myself to be comfortable with being vulnerable and very transparent about my story. This is the meat and the authenticity of my ministry as a poet, author and speaker. I knew that in order for me to be able to reach the woman that I am called to reach, I must be real and authentic because in this I am relevant and relatable.
Is it something you’ve always done or always wanted to do?
Yes, I always something done since I was a little girl. I remember learning how to write poetry in my 7th grade year of middle. Ever since then, I have fallen in love with it. It is the sole way how I express myself. When I started out writing, I didn’t know that I was going to be empowering and encouraging women through my writing. So I am humbly honored to be used by God in this poetic work.
Any advice to aspiring writers?
Keep writing. Don’t give up. You have a voice and you have a story to share. There is power in the pen.
Why do I write?
I write to empower. I write to inspire. I write to set women free. I write to exhort and encourage. I write to express me.
