As a child, I didn't live a typical life. Rejection, mistreatment, emotional and physical pain were all parts of my every day. Unloved and rejected by my own parents, my heart was full of sadness and I lived in a sea of constant lies. I was the innocent and vulnerable scapegoat who was taunted and bullied. I was the little girl with horrific secrets; tossed aside; gaping wounds and carrying pain that only food would numb for a short while. I was the little girl who forced smiles at strangers so they couldn't see my internal struggles or pain.
I have no problem divulging all my secrets and revealing the evil I endured. I want the light of truth to expose the enemy.
I want my voice to echo across the world; helping and encouraging others so they will know they aren’t alone. Because of the trauma and tragedy I lived through, I did time in prison to anxiety and fear; but God broke my chains and set me free. I've been healed, delivered and made a new creation; all because God loves and cares for me.
For anyone who has suffered physical, emotional, sexual or spiritual abuse and pain; I write for you. For anyone who cries themselves to sleep at night; has addictions; insecurity; abandonment issues; panic attacks; fear and anxiety; eating disorders or anything else keeping you from the life you want or the relationship with God you desire; I WRITE FOR YOU!
For EVERYONE; because we all need to know the love, grace, healing, hope and mercy of our Savior; I WRITE FOR YOU!
God has impacted my life so much that without him, I would probably be dead or in a mental institution. Without God, I envision myself on drugs to numb my pain; crying out for help that no one can console; and constantly searching for someone or something to calm my fear and anxieties.
Without God, I remain locked in a prison with horrid reality of where I have been and what happened to me.
Without God, there would be no real hope, healing, encouragement or freedom.
Without God, I would hate my abusers and harbor rage and unforgivness; living in bondage to fear and bitterness.
But God, rescued me from the depths of hell and I know his love for me. He has changed my life, healed me and uses me to reach a lost and hurting world with his truth and message of love.
God is life and without Him there is only death.
I've learned that pain, trials and suffering is never wasted. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28) We gain wisdom, discernment and an experience to carry with us for the rest of our lives so we can help others when they are in need. Many people around us are hurting deeply. Life is about standing in the trenches next to these people. Maybe not in the literal places; but in the place where our hearts can empathize, love, pray and call upon the Lord for them. It’s in these places that people can't see the light from the darkness, and sometimes they are living in deception. But whatever is going on in their lives, our hearts feel for them and they need to know and understand the one and only true answer; the one and only eternal thing that matters or makes a difference; and he is Jesus Christ!
It is my passion to empower people to keep going no matter what and to keep their focus and faith in God. I want others to learn to: “Never Give up Hope”. Our lives are too precious and our calling too high to ever settle for less than what God has for us. Today is the day to move forward in faith and freedom! "No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us." (Philippians 3:13-14)
“God is about helping people, reminding them they can smile again.”

Use us each day to help change the World for you! Amen!
