Experiencing God's Love, Igniting Hope, and Empowering Lives
On a personal note... I really enjoy participating in activities that inspire and encourage people to become the best version of themselves. Life is a journey that provides each of us with a unique path that leads to wholeness, fulfillment, and overall joyful living. Whether speaking, teaching, writing, or otherwise engaged with people, the message and method is the same, to lend support, encouragement, and compassion to each person I meet. There is a light and gift from God within each of us. It is my hope that each person would discover their gift and purpose.
