My story is "Mom, Are You Okay?"
IGNITE POSSIBILITIES is a compilation book filled with stories that inspire and empower, as authors share their 'Ignite Moment' amid adversity and criticism, and moving forward in the direction of their dreams, creating joyful, purposeful lives.
My story, Find Joy in the Journey, gives a glimpse of my experience with my sister, Joy. Hand in hand, we vowed to fight for life with grit and grace, to live and love, bless and be blessed, till the end. She was the "miracle girl" whose spirit continues to live on, and I now see that there is no "coincidence" in life. Anything is possible. "What If...?" I hope we can all dare to reach out and boldly live. It's never too late. "A joyful heart is the beat of life." ~ Pat

HOWARD is a short film based on a true story about an honest portrayal of love between two people that many aspire to have, and few ever achieve. Though faced with insurmountable hurdles, the film celebrates the greatest force of all – love, which shines through race, sexual orientation and religion.
HOWARD defies condemnation from family, church, and community during a time when tolerance and acceptance of relationships outside the perceived “norm” were rare.
