"I'm in the planning stages of creating my new book, "It's Not About the Butterfly." I was seeing so many signs from God while on this musical journey; I actually started taking photos of all of them knowing that people just wouldn't believe me unless I did! My new book is an inspirational photo journal of all of those encounters.
