Sandra K. Bouie told CA: "As a Christian writer, my primary goal is to inspire others to reach high and use their God-given talents and skills to encourage, strengthen, and comfort others on a daily basis. Jesus Christ has influenced me to know that, as a human being, I am wonderfully and fearfully created in His image and created specifically to produce and accomplish good works. I hope that my writing touches the lives of others and makes them better human beings."
