Blogging has been a tremendous source of encouragement, inspiration, and motivation that has enabled and empowered me in my journey of transitioning from marriage through separation and divorce towards the ‘better place’ I desired to be from the year the divorce took place in 2005.

Inspired and influenced by the writings of author Max Lucado and his insightful, creative way of depicting the biblical story of the woman with the issue of blood, I declared to myself then, ‘I want to write like that!’ Thus began my personal journey and mission to complete and produce Out of the Darkness. Initially intended to be a devotional for my church community, Out of the Darkness took on a life of its own over the past 9 years that culminated in what I present for others to share in what God has divinely inspired through His use of me to write.

Much like the woman with the issue of blood, Out of the Darkness became an encounter and expression of my desire and ambition to encounter something greater, better and new! Compelled and persuaded by the belief that a closer proximity with Jesus would bring into her life what she desired in her heart, the woman with the issue of blood sojourned, by faith, towards the source of her wellness and wholeness. Pressing forward through the crowd, pushing through the internal/external obstacles of opposition between the condition of her current circumstances and her ‘better place’ encounter, she persevered beyond the twelve long years of misery and misfortune until she could experience the touch that would bring about her transformation!

I invite you to share in the experience of the journey towards the ‘better place’ into something greater, better, and new God has in store for those who believe! Purchase your copy of Out of the darkness on,, or contact me directly at for an autographed copy!

10% of each copy sold will go to support the Reid Temple Christian Academy PreK-8 School in Glenn Dale, MD where Rev. Dr. Lee P.Washington serves as Senior Pastor.

Inspired to share His grace!
