A Soulful Experience Through Words

Writer. Preacher. Editor.
Speaker. Food Justice Activist. Y-not?


Story SoundBite: Being Ruth

It's not the traditional story that we've heard over the years. Hear what Yvette says about Being Ruth! 

She Leads Workshops, Preaches and She's an Editor

Writing is who I am. I believe that clear writing that is liberating, informative and inspirational undergirds everything that we do. Words matter. Whether it’s penning a sermon, Bible study curriculum, crafting a social justice litany or creative non-fiction, writing is life to me. 


I am a writer who preaches and a preacher who writes and edits. I am also a food justice activist and I write and lead workshops about how food injustice affects the vulnerable in our communities.  
My work ranges from professional writing and editing services to speaking, workshop presentations and preaching. 


As an editor, I have worked alongside several pastors  utilizing my writing and editing skills, helping them to transform their messages into manuscripts. Some of the books include: Ignite: 50 Days of Prayer That Will Change Your Life, Saving Our Sons: Effectively Engaging Young Men of Color, Are You Afraid of Heights?, Dead End Or Divine Encounter: Discovering Opportunity Through Adversity, Blueprint for Bible Basics, and Breaking Codependency: How to Navigate The Traps That Sabotage Your Life


My work has been published in several publications including: Tex!, New Texas 2001, New Texas 2003, Kente Cloth, Texas Short Stories II, Langdon Review, The Hoot and Holler of the Owls, Facts on File Companion to 20th Century American Poetry, and Perkins School of Theology Journal (of which I served as editor in 2012). 

Additionally, I have written for The Dallas Weekly, The Minority Opportunity News, Arlington Morning News, and served as a copyeditor for Echoes of Empowerment Magazine


My debut book, Being Ruth: Pressing Through Life’s Struggles with Fearless Faith, was released July 2017.
