I am an unashamed Christian woman that’s on fire for God. Also a speaker, founder of a non-profit women organization “ASense of Hope Inc.”, and author of A Sense of Hope.

Sunshyne is the brand for this blog. Years ago, it started off as a way for me to expose my issues and what I dealt with while encouraging women. With all of the support and words of affirmation, the Lord placed it on my heart to take it to another step.

A Sense of Hope, Inc. is Christ centered non-profit organization that was inspired from my first book. We focus on hurting women and teens that are broken and need love poured into them. Annually, I hold a Daughters of the King Conference here in south Florida as our mission is to adjust crowns to remind you that you are a daughter of The King. If you are interested in sponsoring or donating, click here. All donations received goes towards this conference and organization. If God has placed it on your heart to donate, it would be a huge blessing. Any amount helps!


There’s something about a woman that overcomes any and everything that was meant to destroy her. I constantly get asked, “How do you manage to stay strong?” I broke my silence in hopes to reach out to more people, women, and young girls especially. Those who face problems daily but are too ashamed to admit when they are weak. I used to be that little girl who had thoughts of suicide and actually attempted it a few times. But God was always there to rescue me and I finally listened when He told me to hold on just a little longer.

We are human, so at times the sun won’t shine. But the good thing about storms are that when it’s done, there’s always a rainbow and there will always be a light in the end. My answer to that question about how I manage to stay strong; Jesus. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me (Phillipians 4:13). He is my strength, true love, joy, peace, the truth, and I put all my hope and faith in Him.

There’s more to my story, most of it was written in my book. I am a Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis’ and Hypothyroid/hyperthyroid warrior as I am fighting this battle daily. It’s not easy, but we can’t give up.
