That’s me, whether I’m talking with a family member or a frazzled mom at the grocery store.

And I’ll be the first to admit. I’m a piece of work like everyone else, but I’m a work in progress. I’m embracing who I am and my experiences, allowing Jesus to work it all together for my good.

It’s because I know God loves me I’m open to truth that promotes growth. And that’s what I want for you.

But embracing truth requires transparency—honesty with yourself and others. That’s not easy! I know.


When I sat down to write a book for moms, Jesus detoured me. God had something to say to us as daughters before talking to us as mothers. The DADDY’s Girl Forever book and the devotional are the dynamic duo for YOU—the woman with daddy issues who, needing connection with a good father, discovers who she is and healthy relationships along the way.

And invite you to dive deeper and journal your adventure in DADDY God’s lavish love in DADDY’s Girl Forever The Study Journal.


As a physician, I enjoy the book of Luke (a fellow doc who delights in details), but when you want to appreciate the love of God wrapped up in Jesus—John’s your guy. Vine Life Faith grew out of my favorite chapter in the gospel of John. There’s nothing like love to help you swallow truth. And they meet you in every verse in John 15.


Being from the Bronx, you’d be right to assume I speak my mind, but I prefer sharing what’s useful—because opinions help no one. It’s what Jesus says that matters. And I use His words to challenge the narratives that keep you from His best for you.

If you’re looking for someone who tells you the truth flavored with love because she wants to see you be your best. Then I’m your girl. Let’s walk this out together.
