Hi, I am
Given up for adoption before I was born, I was raised in an extremely dysfunctional and domestically abusive environment. I learned firsthand, and firmly believe that it is not your outer environment, but your inner environment that defines you. As a "white sheep" in a "black sheep" family, I always cherished God and His Word from a young age. Unfortunately, my hunger for God and my passion for making Him smile, increased my childhood abuse. This hostile and manipulative upbringing was not in vain, though. These challenges served as a catalyst into my quest for truth, love, and an intimate relationship with the only father I knew; my Heavenly one.
I sensed from a young age that I was created for a global purpose, and I believe that everyone not only has a purpose, but has been uniquely designed by our Creator for their unique purpose. And, with every unique purpose, comes a unique strategy.
The foundation of each individual’s strategy is an awakening to the reality of the matchless love that God has for each of us. Through this, the ability to lavish His love back unto Him, unto ourselves, and unto others, in a biblical and balanced way, is unleashed!
With my passion for healing and restoring broken hearts by the power of God’s love, I pastored for 20 years, pioneering two churches along the way. In 2007, I was elated to receive a honorary graduate and alumni status from the founders of Rhema USA. All of this paved the way for where God was always taking me. I am now an inspirational and motivational speaker, writer, and transformation coach. You can tune into my radio broadcast on Fourteen12.com and read my feature column at WeConnectMag.com.
Injustices, broken hearts, insecurities, fears, and emotional baggage are just a few of life's inevitable feelings that can hold us back. These topics are woven throughout my speaking and writing, as well as ways to conquer them. Want advice that's thought provoking, practical, and relevant to everyday life? You're in the right place. Feel alone, helpless, or like nobody could possibly understand what you're going through? You're in the right place. Expect to experience God’s grace and be empowered to become the best version of yourself and uncover the courage to freely be uniquely you. I do not doubt that if you join me on this journey, you will feel hope-filled, accepted, valued, empowered, and ultimately, transformed by the power of God’s love.
