Canaa Lee Shares CONFESSIONS OF THE HEART
by BWW News Desk - Dec 1, 2016

'Confessions of the Heart': a simple, yet sophisticated admission into the life experiences that brought a spirit from sin and darkness to a life lived for the Lord. 'Confessions of the Heart' is the creation of published author, Canaa Lee, who grew up in the small town of Brinkley, Arkansas with a population of roughly five thousand people. She has been a teacher since she was twelve years old. She started playing the piano at the age of six. Her forte in high school was mathematics. Mathematics came easy to her, and she helped her friends with their homework. Her first passion was music, but she soon realized that majoring in mathematics would make her become more marketable with a degree in mathematics verses a degree in music. Lee's first teaching job was in Fort Worth, Texas, at South Hills High School. She completed her graduate work at the University of Central Arkansas in August 2005. In 2006, she took a position as an instructional specialist at Carter-Riverside High School in Fort Worth, Texas. In 2008, she took a position as a lead content teacher at Leonard Middle School in Fort Worth, Texas. Lee taught at Little Rock Central High School from 2003 to 2006. In the summer of 2008, she moved to Garland to teach at Garland High School. In 2010, she was given the opportunity to be Program Administrator for Project Educating and Diversifying to Grow Exponentially (EDGE). In September of 2011, she was unanimously selected as the 2011 Garland NAACP Educator of the Year. This was the first time in her entire teaching career that she had been recognized for her efforts as a teacher. But her world came crashing down on October 5, 2011. Her mom called to tell Lee her dad died! She asked, 'What do you mean Daddy died?' She was in denial, and soon thereafter the emotions came. This was the first time in her career that she put everything on hold and had to STOP. In 2012, she met the woman who soon became her best friend and introduced her to the Christian lifestyle. Her life slowly started to pick up. Lee decided to make some changes in her life. She was a published author and a public speaker; she had a new best friend. She even started to go to church. A new circle of friends was a breath of fresh air. Instead of just going to work and going home, she was actually enjoying her life and the people that she was around. In 2013, she decided she wanted to do something special for her thirty-fourth birthday and went on a singles' cruise. It sounded like a great, relaxing, and enjoying vacation. She met the nicest guy ever. However, the events that happened after this changed her life forever. (more...)
