"We are all on a journey, we all have a story. God is not finished with us yet. He loves us unconditionally and always provides opportunities for us to learn and grow in our faith, we just have to open our eyes to Him and become aware of His workings in our lives. I turned away from God for many years and learned this the hard way, but it doesn't have to be hard. God desires a relationship with each and every one of us and He is the key to true happiness and joy."

“I truly feel that God turns our brokenness into beauty and that is what He does every time I am given the opportunity to speak and share my story. I hope that the pain of what I went through can be used to help and heal someone else and bring them closer to God's love.”
