Day 30 – Chosen

There are times in our lives when we are called to be a light in the darkness. Now is that time — this is the sign you’ve been waiting for. Be a calming presence and representative of God’s love. Let your entire being shine like a beacon — a cynosure in these times. You will…

30 Days of Surrender

Good morning, friends! Starting May 1st, I will begin a series entitled 30 Days of Surrender. I encourage you to search your hearts and pray for divine revelation regarding what you need to release that keeps you tethered to this world.

Be yourself. The only person you’re in competition with is you. It took me years to figure this out. I wish I had taken pictures of myself at various stages of my life so that I could reflect on my growth. I could actually start that now and caption each picture so that I could…

Rebirth
