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. My journey is embracing who I am while allowing Jesus to make me better.

It’s because I know God loves me I receive truth promoting growth. And that’s what I want for you.

But embracing truth requires transparency, being honest with yourself and others. That’s not always easy! I know.


When I sat down to write a book for moms, Jesus detoured me. God had something to say to His daughters before talking to us as mothers. The DADDY’s Girl Forever book and the devotional are the dynamic duo for YOU—the grown up little girl who’s never outgrown the need for a loving relationship with her father.

Maybe you’re like me and never knew God’s fatherly love in your heart beyond understanding the concept. Then you’ll love diving even deeper into the adventure unfolding 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.
