If you ask Jarneec', a piece of paper and a pencil has always been her best friend. There is something about putting your thoughts into writing that can ease the troubled heart.
Growing up, Jarneec' would escape the difficulties of life by turning pages of books. Although battling Dyslexia and ADHD has attempted to cause a hindrance, her creativity thrived. Without any doubt, she dove into the unknown with her faith in Jesus Christ strapped on her back and the Word of God written in her heart. Building relationships with communities of all religions, ethnicities, and languages has impacted how she views life. Some may call her crazy, but changing the world with hope, love, and truth will always be her driving force.
Self-publishing a book has not been easy, but having a supportive husband and family has made the journey worthwhile. Jarneec's story, just like many of yours, is still being written. The beautiful thing about life is the gift of chasing a dream despite the outcome.
