Someone once told me that my words have a voice, and that whatever I decided to do with my writings, I must never lose that voice in those words written on paper. From the Walls Inside: Recorded Conversations with Myself, is a compilation of personal testimonies that I have written in the form of poetry, short stories and essays. It is a book of expression--an expression of hurt and pain, leading towards healing and deliverance. It speaks from woman to woman; however, it speaks volumes for many who have been victimized by the haunting secrets of their past. Growing up in a home that was infested with generation curse upon generation curse was a difficult thing for me as a child to comprehend, to communicate and/or to outmaneuver; there were no specific guidelines on how to effectively make known the many hurts and pains that were festering within me. It was only when I became an adult that I was able to write about the pain from the suffering inside. Many times I stared into the mirror and talked to myself (slowly picked myself apart), when I saw a wounded little girl bound, fighting to scream out the voice that was hiding within-the voice that was silenced by everyone else's silence. I began to record those conversations (with the guidance of the Lord) to understand that while I was in the midst of my pain, there was a much greater purpose for my life. Christ has blessed my life with the gift of writing; He has entrusted me with this gift; He has given me the responsibility to help set others free through the power of the written word.
