HIStory and My Story

RJ Jackson The Courage Giver Bio

HiStory – The Father

He formed me in my mother’s womb. He knows the plans He has for me, plans for a future and a hope.  He started a good work in me and He will complete it.

History – My Father “Bill the Boss”

I am a daddy’s girl.  I love and adore my father.  He loved my mom for 5o years as he vowed to do until death did they part.   His love molded me unto the bold, courageous, and confident person I am today.

When I asked my dad for three words that best describe me he chuckled and said, “Can I make them up because I don’t think they can be found in the dictionary.”

Then he gave me these three words: Beautiful. Intelligent. Persistent. That’s his-story and I’m sticking to it!

My Story

 I live unapologetically  on the corner of Confidence and Courage.  

Although I have spend most of my life jumping, running, and walking, a major car accident left me wheelchair bound for nearly two years. That was not my first acquaintance with a wheelchair.   I also graduated from high school in a wheelchair.  Life has presented itself to me in many forms of trauma.  Several times death knocked on my door and God told hell no on my behalf. I have had to overcome many obstacles that were meant to kill me including being diagnosed with Lupus. I promise you, I put the R in resilience.  Like you, I am an overcomer.
