Talking, Talent, & Testimonies

Getting Fear Out of Life … I was born a writer. As soon as I learned to write and spell, I wrote poems and gave them to my mother. I worked as a reporter for several years after I graduated from Texas A&M—Texarkana with a bachelor’s degree in mass communications. … So, I wake up every day wondering what to do with my talent. I know the Lord blessed me with this ability for a reason. I have a desire to write encouraging words because today is a difficult time for so many.

A Dog’s Best Friend

When I was growing up, one of my favorite movies was Annie. It's a film about a quirky, street-smart orphan who steals the heart of an industrial tycoon named Oliver Warbucks. Eventually, Mr Warbucks adopts Annie, saving her from the orphanage and its gin-loving overseer, Miss Hannigan. It's a feel-good movie/musical where the portrayal of the true underdog of a kid conquers her circumstances and comes out on top. And who doesn't love to cheer for the underdog? … One of the most memorable scenes in the film is when Annie escapes the orphanage and is happily wandering the streets of New York.

Pretend Play to the Real Deal

Hey, fabulous readers! Gather around because I'm about to spill the tea on my bridal transformation—from years of playing dress-up to finally stepping into the limelight as a blushing bride. Buckle up because it's been a rollercoaster of tulle, lace, and a completely transparent STRESS! … For years, I've modeled for Arkansas Bride Magazine, wedding planners, and photographers, living out my dream as the pretend bride.

Curating Confidence

I remember more than 25 years ago watching Cher virtually select her outfit for the day with the click of a button in Clueless. It became the envy of me and teenage girls everywhere! I remembered thinking, "If I had a tool like that, I could look flawlessly put together just as easily as Cher." … It's 20 years later, and I still don't have a digital wardrobe assistant (bummer, right?!), but I've discovered something even more impactful than Cher's digital closet tool. In 2020, I had "my colors done" by a House of Colour consultant in Fort Worth.
