BT: After coming through a real dark period in my life I began writing to help me stay encouraged and motivated. I knew that the process of coming out was not the end that I had to do my work in order to stay out of the pain I came through. Something that helped me to do that was writing; it started as weekly inspirational message that I would share with my friends and family via email. Then one day as I was writing God spoke to me and my writing started to change. Something that I was using as my own therapy God came in a guided me to use what I have come through to help someone else who may find themselves in the place I was once in. I began writing as if I was talking myself through my own journey. All the things I felt, the things I needed to hear and wanted to hear while I was living in my pain that I needed someone to reach me and say I began writing out. Life is a journey and sometimes that journey leads us down a dark road and if we are not careful we can get suck there thinking that is the final destination. Thinking of the many people who themselves stuck down that dark road kept me writing when I wanted to give up on the book. Reaching them or just that one person that needs to know it is going to be okay eventually is who inspired me to stay motivated and encouraged so that I could be the example for them through my words. Birthing Purpose was inspired by my pain that helped me birth my purpose which moved me to help other birth theirs.
BBB: What are you currently working on?
BT: My next book which will be published in 2016 will be about the nameless women in the Bible. I believe that even though we don’t know their names we can still get something form their story that can help us in current times. In today’s time we may not remember the names of the women we meet, but we will never forget that part of their story they shared with us because in some way their stories shape and change us.
