He knew you before all this . . .


More than 2,000 years ago someone was thinking of me, fighting for my life, fighting for my bloodline.

“When you’ve had enough . . . you’ll know.  How . . . because your desire for inner healing will be stronger than your desire (craving) for that addictive sin, that oh so familiar sin, that one that keeps knocking on your mind’s doorstep, the one that is holding you in bondage.  And that my…

Wait . . . Hope . . . Expect . . .


“Expectation for freedom and healing to the deep core’s of a woman’s mind, body, and spirit. The realization of the true meaning of what God’s love is towards us no matter where we have been, what we have done. God restores the heart and value of a woman by showing her the true depths of…

Just a nugget for those struggling with letting go . . . “A person cannot move from their past hurts, regrets, or their sins until that person takes the first step of grasping ahold of (receiving) and walking in (experiencing) God’s love. It is one thing for a person to say ‘I’m over it’ or…
