This selection of my Top Ten List goes along with my interview of Tomeika Herbert. At the age of thirteen, Tomeika’s mom was killed by her step father. She and her little brother were asleep in the home. She has over come many obstacles and obtained a college education on her own. She is now in her thirties and is planning her wedding. In the interview, she shares how she has honored her mother, Melanie Herbert. Tomeika has inspired healing in many broken lives.
