Though I've been an ordained Reverend for some years now, I didn't broadcast it. I didn't feel worthy of the calling. Today I do. When I look at where I came from and where I am today, I know God is real. Transformation is possible for us all. I can marry, baptize and perform all the functions of a Minister.

I spent 28 days in Nigeria. It was a life changing experience. I want to go back there is so much we need to do to help 3rd world countries. A family of 5 lives in this tiny hut. They sleep on braided mats on the floor. They have no furniture or running water. I want to help the people in Africa. So, when you order my books, please know you'll be helping them too! I have been helping one family since 2004.
I believe if you;
"Save one Man, and You Save a Generation!"

As a dedicated counselor, Vivian utilized her self-composed music in her work with addicts and alcoholics and addicts in Treatment Facilities and on her own as a contracted employee. She’s noticed in her work that most people that come to treatment as adult are abused children, rape victims, incest survivors, abandoned, lived in foster and group home systems, or come from families with alcohol and drug addiction histories.
Addiction is often a result of childhood abuse. Trying to find ways to cope and or dull the emotional pain and trauma, many victims have turned to drugs and alcohol. Vivian has also worked with Dual Diagnosed clients. These are people who suffer from mental health and addiction problems. They tend to use drugs and ditch their medication for their mental health problems in their attempt to cope, making recovery more difficult.
Vivian aka Freedom, spent her teen years in group and foster care homes, overcoming many obstacles such as child abuse, incest, rape abandonment as well as emotional and physical abuse. She doesn’t stop trying to make her dreams to become a successful Author, Life Coach, and Inspirational Speaker come true. Today, she spends much of her time showing others how to do the same.
