She not only has a prolific radio career, but she is also a published author of several books, including Love Someone Today (2001) and Arms Full of Love (2012).
Delilah is mother to 13 children, 10 of whom are adopted. Delilah has a passion for children, which is why she founded Point Hope, which brings clean water, sanitation, nutritional and agricultural programs to refugees in Ghana.
In her spare time, Delilah enjoys spending time with her family and friends on her farm.
