A wise mentor taught me to pray with my hands open whenever I find myself overwhelmed by life’s circumstances. “When you pray,” he said, “Hold your hands open, with your palms up. That will remind you to remain completely open to God.”

I can’t even tell you how many times I have cried, prayed, feared, worried, professed and back peddled the blessings that are manifesting in my life.  YEARS!! DECADES!!

Never in my wildest dreams would I have ever expected any of this.  I am so grateful, so humbled by the tremendous amount of support and well wishes.   Thank you to everyone who has supported me on my journey.  Thank you for purchasing books, purchasing T-shirts, coming to my events, giving me advice, inviting me on your talk and radio shows.   It means so much to me.

They say that black people don’t support each other, I beg to differ!  My community has embraced and uplifted me in abundance.

I really want to take the time to thank the people who may have not supported me financially but sincerely wished me well.  We live in a world that can is often times filled with venom, malice and jealousy.   Your positive and genuine energy is priceless to me!! I thank you for it and I am humbled by it.  Please don’t apologize if you can’t make it.  I appreciate you more for thinking speaking greatness over me.

Thank you God for being gracious enough to fulfill my hearts desires.  If I never write another book again, I am full and finally complete!
