My grandmother and my mother were strong women who instilled values in me and my siblings that would carry weight for years to come. Although limited in education and resources, they were survivors. I am a cancer survivor twice over and my illness taught me that I was never alone and to share my story. God has been so good, I just cannot keep what He has done for me and my family to myself. So, I started to write and post every Wednesday words of encouragement and inspiration. Many people think that their situations are a solo project and that is so far from the truth. Life is but a vapor, short, and comes with all sorts of problems we will experience. You are not alone and this book is written just for you. It’s inspiration for your journey called life. Never let what you see, hinder what you believe. I wanted to put my God inspired writings in a little book so that everyone that reads it, will have something tangible to hold on to. Thank you in advance. I love you and God bless you. Carolyn
I grew up in East Oakland, CA in the projects poor, but felt rich. It wasn’t until 1997 that my life changed when I was diagnosed with a rare cancer, stage 3. I had a reoccurrence in 2008 and was able to complete my master’s degree in psychology. Through this, I learned who God is and my Christian journey began. I am married to Bishop A.L. Cobbs, Jr. of 35 years, we have two children, a son-in-love, and a grandson. God be praised for allowing us to be successful in the midst!
