Writing this Book
I began this project as a journal. I would read each Psalm in a few different translations, then close my Bible (or computer), and pick up my pen, writing the message I got from that Psalm. Initially, I went in order. It didn't take too long before I began skipping some because I just couldn't relate to them. This book took about five years to finish, and some painful lessons that made the difficult ones easier to relate to. I have found that God gives me exactly what I need for whatever task he has set before me.
This book was no exception. I write from the perspective of an African-American woman who was a teacher in an urban public school district, but have had people from all races, ages, genders, and regions tell me they were able to relate to what I was saying, at least for several of the Psalms. Try a sample. Hopefully, you will find something in my writing that speaks to you as well.

Amazon Customer Reviews for Vol. I : Psalms in the Key of my Life
Wonderful Bible-Based Poetry!
The author doesn't claim to be a Bible scholar. Instead she has read the Bible and applied it to her life; which is how we should study the Bible. She takes us on a journey through her life and the first 50 Psalms! The passages are not exerpts from the Bible but a poetic take on how the Book of Psalms was instrumental in the many choices she made during her lifetime and how it helped shape who she is today. Great Job!!! I can't wait for the next 50 Psalms!

Latest book: Private Moments With God
This review is from: Psalms in the Key of my Life (Paperback)
I found this book to be very creative. I loved how the author stepped inside of the Psalms with her life and then came out the other side and wrote of her discovery. The title is exactly what this book is. She figured out how to personalize and find strength in the Psalms for her life moments. I liked that. I also feel that there is released to each reader an ability to discover it for their life. It is releasing a potential new way to look at it for yourself. I also liked that she gave a link (in the Kindle version) under the title that took me to the actual chapter in His Word online so that I could then compare and see how she got what she got. I personally love the Psalms and found this refreshing. If you are looking for a book that potentially releases to you a new way to apply His word for your own life, this is it.
