May “My Story” give hope to all who read it.

The Lord's hand has always been upon my life. (Ps. 139:5-5; 13-18) (Jer 29:11-13) Unlike some testimonials, mine is not a sudden dramatic experience. It's like a thread in a tapestry being slowly and intricately woven through the fabric of my life.
When my mother abandoned me at six months of age, God provided a godly caregiver, my great aunt, for my formative years. This is where the Lord laid His foundation. (Pr 22:6)
When I was torn from her loving home at age five to live in a volatile and abusive environment, God's hand of protection was upon me. (Ps 116:5-6) What I suffered could have been much worse.
When the doctor's gazed in amazement asking why I had not broken from all the devastation of life, I too wondered why and even hoped that I would. But God placed His strength within me. (2 Sam 22:33) Satan tried furiously to harden my heart, but the Lord held my heart in the palm of His hand, keeping it soft and tender for the day of my calling. (Ps 27:5) And on that hot August day, at age fourteen, I gave Jesus my heart.
When I spent the next seven years living a life of survival and sin, God's grace and mercy surrounded me.

(Ps 43:7) Nineteen years passed before I experienced the reality of an intimate relationship with Christ. Salvation was mine I knew, but something was still missing, what was this personal one on one friendship my beloved Aunt had always talked about? I wanted more and so at the age of thirty-three, I prayed for the Lord to speak to me, to bring His Word alive, to fill me with understanding and to teach me His voice. And as I asked, He answered and began to tell me great and unsearchable things I did not know. (Jer. 33:3)
Today (2004), Jesus continues to reveal Himself to me and I marvel at the peace and joy He brings to my life. He is transforming me into His likeness and although I am far from perfect, I am determined to press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. (Php 3:12)

 In December 2007, God called me to ministry through His word in Isaiah 61:1: “…He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted…” The Lord set before me a ministry that was the passion of my heart - a passion that had long since faded with failures and shattered dreams but God is the God of Resurrection and through my own healing journey, He brought back to life my passion for helping those that are drowning in their pain and have lost hope.

I cannot begin to describe how amazing it is to have a front row seat to the workings of God! I am deeply humbled and blessed that He invited me to partner with Him in His redemptive work.

Favorite Bible verse:

Ephesians 6:12 -- "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
