Keeping it Real...
Welcome! No matter how you found this, God knew you'd be here today. May you absorb the message He has for you. In 2011 I shared through my writing, today I've learned there is more to me than just writing. I have the energy and passion to share with others. Sometimes through Facebook live and others with my blog and most importantly, I've learned my passion to cook and bake is a vessel to share my writing and live presentations, while glorifying God in the process. I just needed to let go, and follow His lead.

A Flashback of Sisterly Love...
I'm happy to have so many memories and photographs to choose from for this blog tour. The challenge was which one to share with all of you. Since no one particular instance stand outs, I decided to share a generalized memory of the sisterhood I had with my sister.
"Had" is the key word. Nearly twenty years ago my only sister, Heidi M Allen, was abducted from her place of employment on Easter Sunday. She remains missing today with one man serving a 25 to life sentence for her kidnapping and presumed death. Why do I tell you this? To emphasize the importance of memories with your sisters, whether they are your blood sisters or your Christian sisters. Only God knows what tomorrow holds, so we need to cherish our time with our loved ones, especially our sisters. A sister's bond is like no other.
After I lost Heidi, I never thought I'd experience the joy, comfort, and love of a sister again. I have four sister-in-laws who love me yet couldn't open myself up to let them in. It wasn't until I started to trust God again that I was able to open my heart for the bond of sisterhood again. I have eighteen years of memories with Heidi and since her disappearance, I slowly learned to make memories with my girlfriends, my sisters, and embrace this bond and gift from God. I lost Heidi, and will always miss her because there is nothing like the love of your sister but for those who don't have a sister, our friends and sisters-in-Christ are priceless blessings.
My first book, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey, shared my journey after Heidi's kidnapping. I'm currently working on the sequel, taking a deeper look into life without my sister and the affect it has on my life, still today. The joy and hope is this, with God in the equation, there is no where to go but up. So my portion of this blog on sisterhood is to encourage you to embrace the sisters in your life, whether they are blood relatives or those you choose ~ these are priceless gems in your life.
