Reese's Bookclub LitUp Update.

Pursuing Untold Stories

'Maropeng: In the Ruins', has been selected as one of the five winners of Reese's Bookclub LitUp Fellowship Cycle 3.


It feels so incredibly surreal to have embarked on a journey I never wanted to in the first place (LOL), only for it to pivot in this major way! One of the biggest lessons for me from all of this is: Give way to God every time! He truly goes beyond one's imagination.

I will be in touch when I return from Nashville.

I appreciate your support. If you know anyone who'd like to be a part of this journey, please encourage them sign up for the newsletter at

Thank you for sharing this moment with me.

Now aware of the encompassing darkness, she tightened...
