LaToya Murchison and I am a Woman After God’s Own Heart. LaToya Murchison was born and raised in Southern Pines, NC and started writing poetry as a junior in high school. LaToya found that writing allowed her to be creative and eventually discovered her interest in becoming a published author. After graduating from high school and uncertain of her career path, she attended and received an Associate Degree in Office Systems Technology from Sandhills Community College in Pinehurst, N.C.
LaToya is passionate about encouraging, helping, and building up others. She gave my life over to Christ 6 years ago and is the best decision that I ever made. At the age of 18 doctors told her that she would not live to see the age of 25. On August 2 she will turn 37 years old and she continues to give God all the thanks daily because she know that if it had not been for the plan and the favor that he had set for her life before she was born she would not be here today. LaToya loves to spread the word of God everywhere I goes.
LaToya’s life has been filled with very colorful people and experiences. With the stress of battling health issues and the loss of loved ones in her life, LaToya found writing provided her with a source of therapy and healing.
In 2012 LaToya created a Facebook Group D.O.V.E Daughters of Virtue with a mission to unite women who strive to encourage and empower other women and members of their community. To promote unconditional love, peace unity and the importance of understanding and respecting women’s individual’s rights to choose a spiritual path.
LaToya serves as Media Director and Children’s Ministry Assistant at Love Grove Free Will Baptist Church. LaToya published her first book A Praying Heart on November 21, 2014 and her second book Poetic Expressions on May 30, 2015.
Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
