Born and raised in North Carolina, Dutchess Horton has written most of her life. She finally felt led of God to share the words He had impressed upon her heart, and wrote this devotional to honor her pastor. Her first booklet began as a church project entitled "The Total Woman: Becoming Complete In Christ." Printed locally, it is available through her website, www.dutchesshorton.com. Dutchess and her husband Aaron will soon celebrate 20 years of marriage and are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters. After a brief time away from North Carolina, God saw fit to lead her and her family back to her roots and her childhood church home of Olive Branch, in Parmele NC. She serves as the church clerk and sings in the choir. She also helps her husband with the media ministry and is active in the Women's ministry. In addition to caring for her family and her church work, Dutchess works full-time as a customer service representative outside of the home.
