My name is Shirley Simonton. I was born in Flint, Michigan and came to live in Dubach, Louisiana when I was about 4 or 5 years old. I attended Hico Elementary and Dubach High School. I graduated from Grambling State University and receive an Associate in Child Development in 2005. I am a member of Greater Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Unionville, Louisiana where William G. Fields, Sr. is my pastor and Penya Fields is the First Lady. I am a Sunday School Teacher, sing in the choir, and an usher.
I was inspired to write this book several years ago, but like most people I ran because it was nothing I wanted to do personally. So, I gave in a few years ago and wrote what God inspired me to write. Me, just an ordinary person that God decided to use is such a thrill. You know God uses ordinary people like you and me.
