“Writing” is a gift from God. Earlier in my life I wrote poems and song lyrics. In the early 60’s I wrote lyrics to two songs that were recorded. One song was recorded by the Staple Singers with Mavis Staples singing the lead. The other song was written for a famous girl’s group called the “Emotions” who were also from Chicago and managed at the time by Pervis Staples of the Staple Singers.

Recently, she wrote an essay in tribute to her eighty-fi ve year old mother that was printed in National Public Radio’s series called “Th is I Believe”.

This journey of the last twenty years is my testimony to God’s grace and mercy during the most challenging time of our lives. My mother often uses the quote “If God brings you to IT; He will take you through it”! He has never left me alone. To God, be the glory!
