Pressurized For Greatness (Author Interview)

Pressurized for Greatness looks like a powerful personal story.  Can you tell us a little about it?

My book is about the truths that I have learned from the pressures of life.  We must Deal to Heal.

God has a plan. God’s Grace is sufficient. Pressure is a part of living. We are responsible for our healing not our trauma.  Everything that happens to us is not our fault but how we respond is our responsibility. Our response is our responsibility.


How long did it take you to write Pressurized for Greatness?

I started writing the book ten years ago.  I wrote the book over the course of a few months.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

The cover has a picture of coal and diamonds.  The cover speaks to how pressure applied to coal produces diamonds. Like the diamond, we will face pressure. Pressure is a part of life. It is an essential part of life. The pressure is necessary for greatness to come forth. Diamonds have immense value. We are more valuable to God than those precious gems, and God uses pressure to strengthen, purify, and build us up.


What will readers get out of your book?

1.      Pressure is a part of life, so we will experience pressure just by virtue of being alive (John 16:33)

2.      Greatness resides on the inside of you but it needs to be developed (Matt 23:11)

3.      Your life matters to God and God has a plan for you (Jeremiah 29:11)


When did you decide to become a writer?

I discovered I had the gift of writing when I shared my story with people and people would tell me “I should write a book”. So I did, I wrote this book.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Pressurized for Greatness?

I had to really dig deep to remember the trauma I went through. But I also had to remember how God delivered me from the pain of the trauma. I wrote this book to not only share my backstory to unlocking my greatness, but also to encourage and empower people to recognize greatness comes from pressure. It is through my faith in Jesus Christ that I realized in pressured times that greatness resided inside of me and the pressure was a part of the process. The grace of God kept me. I want you to know that greatness resides in you. There is grace for tomorrow.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I like to travel, sightseeing, cook, visit new restaurants, and learn new things.
