She says that after all these years, I realize that God has purposed me to be an example and mentor to ministers, to cause others to want more of him, to let others know that you don’t have to be a part of the family priesthood to be called and profoundly used by God, to impart and activate kingdom gifts in God’s anointed and chosen people, operate in the prophetic realm, and to restore His Glory Back unto the Kingdom of God. Her number one objective is doing the will of God.

My life story is one of triumph and winning against all odds. In two short years, I was widowed, lost my house and dog. Diagnosed with stage four cancer,brain aneurysm, and contracted a deadly infection. When I moved to this area, I had to learn how to walk and talk all over again. My message to the body is One that speaks of God’s Amazing Love and Grace….And finding purpose in my pain, while learning to dance in the rain…
