I was born in Trinidad on May 10th. I moved to the United States when I was 10 days old and have made Orlando my home for the last several years. I served in the US Army for five and a half years, and am married to a very supportive husband with whom I have three lovely girls. One of the more interesting things about me is that I am currently employed at the elementary school which I attended and my children now attend. While working at the elementary school, one of my coworkers and friends, SaReeta, introduced me to reading. I have since found myself enjoying books more. When Jenelle, also a coworker, talked about starting a book club that focused more on Christian fiction, I was very excited. I discovered a great enjoyment reading Christian books about other people who encountered some of the regular, everyday situations I also faced.I have accomplished many things throughout the years, but I consider my biggest accomplishment to be marrying my husband and having my three children. My interests are focused on playing with my children, being a mother and wife, and spending time with family and friends. My main goal and purpose in life is to make my family happy and see to it that their needs are met.
My favorite scripture is Matthew 6:25-33, which talks about not worrying about your life, or what you eat, drink, or wear. It also states that we should “…seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself; each day has enough trouble of its own.” This is one of the areas I am asking God to help me with, to learn to depend solely on him and not worry about things of this world like my job, my family, my finances, etc. He is teaching me that I need to just pray about it and believe that He will do just what the Scriptures say, that He will provide my every need.
The Women of Character Book Club has encouraged me to continue to read, and it makes me realize that I’m not the only one going through certain trials and situations; that there are others out in the world that have encountered adverse situations and successfully overcame them.
