"Your Story Can Hold The Key To Someone Else's Deliverance."
I was offered an opportunity to publish a book when I won a contest hosted by a Marketing Firm. At the time, I didn’t really have a theme until I sat still enough to remember. I realized it was important to write this book because it was a story of overcoming. Depression, anxiety, fear, and all the insecurities people experience are real and happening more and more now than ever. If we can tell our story of how we overcame our own depression and fears, we can help someone else overcome. It’s important to testify you’re victories. Your story can hold the key to someone else’s deliverance. Out of Hiding is about lessons learned that helped me discover the WHY of my emotional condition. Knowing why is important to receiving healing. It is my experience that healing begins with a journey of discovery.
What I Want People to Take Away from Reading Out of Hiding
I am passionate about truth, honesty, realness, godly and safe vulnerability. I believe that when we confess, we are free. So, telling the truth about your emotions is important to healing. When people pretend around me, it fills my heart with compassion for them. I don’t get angry. I get sad, because something is causing them to hide. Hiding is sad, lonely and dark. I want people to be set free from those things, so when you read my writings, you will notice, the common theme of being honest with yourself and God, that is being truthful.
Allowing Grace to do its work in you and finding your refuge in Christ, hiding in Him instead of hiding from Him and others.
My Favorite experience that fulfills me in ministry is when I see people have an “Aha” moment and the pressure comes off them when they encounter the reality of who God is and who He wants to be in their life.
Do you keep a journal or diary? Do you write as a creative hobby?
Writing has become an important part of my life. I was asked recently why do I write? I answered, “Connection”.
When I write, I get emotional and sometimes I cry with joy because I realize at that moment, that I am fully connected, engage, and in synergy with my true self and and most importantly my Creator, the one who put a love for words and design in me.
Dealing with depression as a leader was not easy.
Is it important for leaders to be vulnerable with those they lead?
The challenge is that if you are a leader, you are an influencer. As a leader in my community, I worry that people would be influenced by the way I handle any situation. I struggled with being vulnerable and allowing myself to be transparent because I knew little eyes were watching me.
