Rev. Teresita Matos PostSimply put I am:

plain caterpillar
resurrected life by God’s grace
turns to butterfly.
-Teresita, 2018

My most honest offering to the world is a perspective of life, spiritual and physical, expressed in words that give life.  For me, the power of words comes from the Judeo-Christian God, who created the world through speech, and the power of the Risen Christ who came to us as The-Word-Made-Flesh. I think that makes me a poet of a kind, a prophetic poet, some might say.  When I am not writing, I pastor a United Methodist Church in New Jersey.  Most of the time, though, I am a mother to our four daughters, and my husband’s best friend.
