My name is LaVonne Wells Shirkey, I was born and raised in Boston, MA on April 1, 1967.  The time of my birth was never recorded therefore no one knows what time of the day or night I graced this planet with my presence.  From the beginning, on some level I knew this earth existence would be a grand adventure and I learned early on I would have to grow up quickly in order to take care of myself based on the current parents I had been blessed with.   They took part in my creation as to providing the necessary biology and vessel for me to transition into this physical life form.  I honor and with much gratitude give to them for their roles, but as we go along you will see others would have to jump in and assist in parenting as well.
Why am I telling my story now? I believe it is time and my story is definitely one worth telling. I also believe based on our stories of life experiences we have created stories behind our stories that have either lifted us up or continues to drag us down. Everyone has a story and each story is unique to the one telling it. No one can or should compare or rate the importance of another's story to their own, it is what it is to you and that in itself is important. I will begin this blog with pieces of my life so as to share with others quickly. I will tell you my story and then I will tell you the story behind the story of empowerment, encouragement, trust, and wonderful blessed transformation.
One world of encouragement as you read my stories remember the story is not complete and be slow to judge the contents because after all it is (my) LaVonne’s story and experiences.  Please send your comments, food for thought, insights, or other inspirations you may choose to share.  All are welcomed as we begin this journey called life.
