Born to a mother who was hushed into submission and named after a grandmother who refused to shut up, Florenza emerged. Although she was too afraid to speak at times, she was equally too determined to be silenced. Before learning the power of the spoken word, Florenza understood the influence written words have over mountains. She used this influence to move her mountains. Mountains of fear, anger, pain, resentment, and frustrations. With pen to paper, she created masterpieces containing keys for deliverance. Once read and applied, mental chains fell, and emotional prisoners set free. She was the first to receive said pardons.
Some may say this ability to pen words of deliverance is mighty, though Florenza went from mighty to unstoppable upon discovering the spoken word. Her newly found weapon (the spoken word) seeks out fear, doubt, and unbelief, like a heat-seeking missile; Florenza calls upon words to fuel her passion for those who have been silenced and arm them with the faith to believe in miracles.
She is a poet, author, motivational speaker, teacher, Narrative Coach, mentor, and radio talk show host. Her Children's Books inspire, motivate, transform, as well as entertain. Her books include diversity, Mindfulness, learning to say no to negative influences, and life applications of spiritual truths. Florenza's workshops teach the power to fuel one's faith with their fears, building a life of purpose, daring to dream, and having the ability to find love after hardship. As a radio talk show host, she asks the question, "What's Your Story?" believing we all have them and share all for God's glory.
Florenza finds life lessons in the most mundane experiences, and from them emerges such profound truths, truths that once spoken sticks to you like collard greens and cornbread.
