I used to wake up with my day on my mind. What will I do? How will I make things happen? What if this goes wrong?
One morning, I heard the words so clearly, “Don’t wake up worrying.” Every morning is full of new mercies, opportunities and blessings.
Morning Coffee and Daily Inspirations is my daily blog, serving as a reminder not to wake up worrying. Enjoy a cup of coffee and be inspired to move forward.
Ayoka Boyce Bio
Ayoka Boyce aka Nikki P. Serene is an Urban Christian-Fiction and Christian Non-Fiction Author.
When Ayoka started writing, she followed the number one rule, ‘write about what you know’. Raised in the church, she developed her storyline and characters in church settings. She embraced her creative side and penned (under Nikki P Serene) Forsaking All Others (2015) and Forsaking All Others, To Have and To Hold (2015). While pushing limits in combining Urban and Christian styles, she focused on raising awareness of drug, sexual and mental abuse. She believes in pushing the limits all while sticking to her one rule, no cursing. She anticipates finishing the next chapter of the Forsaking All Others series.
Ayoka has now journeyed over to the non–fiction side of Christian writing. Her debut nonfiction title, A Love Conversation (also under name Nikki P Serene), is a compilation of scriptures and daily devotions about love. An avid Bible reader who has always enjoyed Bible study, Ayoka turned to the Bible when she was experiencing a period of heartache. As the Word began to break down the emotional walls that she built around her heart, she started to pen the devotional It’s Okay to Love (releasing soon).
Ayoka has always served as a mentor. She spent many years as a youth leader within the local church as well as a recognized Student Mentor in college. When the parents and students in church asked for writing help to pass standardized state testing, she founded All Write RVA, a writing mentoring service that pairs writers of all genres and levels with experienced writers.
Ayoka is a Minister, licensed under the City Of Refuge for All People, Bishop Michael B. Curtis Jr, Presiding Prelate. She serves in her local church, the Sanctuary RIC as Administrator to the Office of the Bishop, Financial Officer, and Praise and Worship leader.
Ayoka is a summa cum laude graduate of Metropolitan College of New York with Bachelors of Professional Studies and Masters of Public Administration degrees in Human Services.
A lifelong a New Yorker, Ayoka now resides in Richmond, Virginia. She is a licensed minister, speaker, coach and Creative Director/Publisher of MORE Magazine.
