I keep being reminded of my grandmother and my ancestors. I keep being reminded that I am only where I am in life because of their sacrifices for me. I met a woman named Anna today who reminded me of that. I do taxes seasonally and the tax company I work for does mostly lower… Continue reading Meeting Anna
Several years ago I had the opportunity to apply for a new position. It would be a promotion and my manager was eagerly encouraging me to apply. I had missed out on a previous position and really was ok with that b/c I was being sensitive to Holy Spirit. I figured that since I had… Continue reading The Letter
When Emotions Rise
God’s will is often challenging. Just when you think you’ve “made it”, there is another obstacle to be overcome. Now I know His word promises that we have in fact, already overcome those obstacles (Phil 1:6). But my emotions tend to think otherwise.

A mere 1 mile from my current residence in Cleveland, OH. Michelle Knight, Amanda Berry & Gina DeJesus had their lives… Continue reading He Came To Set the Captive Free
