A Story of Triumph over Tragedy

My Story


September 12, 1996 my life as I knew it was changed forever.

As I was approaching home after a long days work, I noticed three men walking down the street. Something about this was suspicious so I decided to drive around the block and when I returned to my house, they were gone.

I parked my car, grabbed my things and walked up to my door. In an instant, I was struck on the head and knocked to the ground. I raised my head to feel the blood running down my face and a voice threatening to kill me if I screamed as a gun was pushed into my face. I was scared for my life, my pleas to leave me and take my belongings ignored. Unable to escape and feeling terrified and alone, my only hope was to pray for my life and for those that I love, hoping that I would see them again.

If you would like me to share my story of hope with your group or organization, please see my Public Speaking page and contact me today. I would love to help others by sharing my full story.
