I became a lover of books as a child. My maternal grandmother had an expansive book den with wall-to-wall and ceiling to floor bookshelves. Both her and my aunt were avid readers and encouraged me to pursue the stories within various genres. In my most favorite books, shows, and movies it is the story line that is most compelling. Typically, it is the story of a family or a group of people that draws me in. Although my favorite fiction writer was J California Cooper, I enjoy most my time spent reading and studying the Bible. The Bible is where I get my most inspiration for writing. The experiences of men, women and children told throughout the pages of scripture, compels me forward in my pursuit of God. Their stories are often our stories too. And my hope is to encourage others to see their personal story through the greatest story, the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am part of an amazing church plant called The Chapel Church in Harrisburg, PA. There I serve as the Director of Operations; providing administrative and logistical support to the ministry teams. I am also excited to serve as a Director of Thrive women’s ministry, where our mission is to be Planted in God, Growing in Grace, and Thriving in Love. This community has been an add a blessing as a count myself as grateful to have my loving family including my husband, Pastor Larry Colbert, and our four children, Danae, Dominique, Taja, and Larry Alexander. I am a graduate of Lancaster Bible College, where I received my BA in Biblical Studies with a minor in Ministry Leadership.
