A Different Kind of Poetry Podcast
Teresa Pearsall-Young is a native of Philadelphia, Pa, and was recently married to Pastor Anthony Young in 2021. She graduated from Overbrook High School in Philadelphia & earned an Associate Arts Degree from Southern New Hampshire University in 2019. Teresa has an extensive background in the Customer Service Healthcare field. Teresa surrendered her life to the Lord 22 years ago and has faced some struggles but has never given up on Christ. Teresa is a mother of one biological daughter, a grandmother of three, and a friend to many. God has blessed Teresa with a heart for helping people and the gifts of administrative help in the corporate world and ministry. Teresa is passionate about cooking; (ask folks about her potato salad and banana pudding) and most passionate about writing. Her writing extends into instructional documentation, short stories, and, her favorite, poetry. Teresa has been writing since a young teen, authoring stories, plays, and songs. Her writing talents went to another level when she gave her life to Christ. She has prepared many theme-based poems and writings for women's conferences and family dedications and continues to write about the wrongs and rights of life, always giving God the glory. ‘Seeds, Trees, Branches & Leaves, Teresa’s first book published in May 2021, is a compilation of poems and ‘stories’ summing up testimonies of life Before and After HIM, with the purpose of sharing how life’s journey and knowing Christ changed her life. The book is available on Amazon and other outlets. Teresa continues in ministry circles, being fed in the word and creatively sharing what has been learned about Jesus and the Kingdom of God. She has a heart for hurting women and hopes to help them find healing from their pain by expressing what they have been carrying so it will no longer hinder their future progress.
