About Me


Hi, my 0100beb8efde544e5a269f16a864004dc34a139715name is Bernetta. I’m a wife, mom, writer and co-founder of Luminous Expressions. I believe that we should allow the positive side of life to rule our decision making. The old adage that the glass is half full verses half empty is my personal philosophy. Recently, I had several friends suggest that I do a blog. My wonderful husband and I have been married 31 years (that’s right, I was a child bride), and he is still my best friend and confidant. For some reason, the fact that we have such a loving and endearing marriage has others believing that we have some secret formula to a successful marriage. We had the pleasure of raising two amazing sons. So to say that I’m a romantic is an understatement. I believe in finding that one person in all the world that you are truly meant to walk through life with.

My blog will be focused on writing, romance, family and those things that truly inspire me. Hence, the name – Luminous Inspirations. I’ve been blessed to be a part of the Chicken Soup for the Soul family as a contributing author with three short stories published in the following books: Chicken Soup for the African American Woman’s Soul (The Graduation); Chicken Soup for the Beach Lover’s Soul (Sunset ); and Chicken Soup for the Working Mom’s Soul (Back in the Saddle Again).

Check out our website and some of the amazing writers hosted on LuminousExpressions.org. You can also find my two romance books on Amazon. Those titles are: Second Chances and Etched Upon My Heart.      

Until next time, happy reading.
