I was raised in a small town in Michigan and was born with a congenital problem in both knees. I went through many surgeries, trying to correct the problem but there was never really a cure. Little did I know, that God had "branded" me at birth, for such a moment as this. Many in this world grow up and go to school or college, to get their education, but that's not what God had in store for me.
My education for writing, came from twenty-one painful knee surgeries, heartache from sexual abuse, as a child, and the loss of many things in my life, including the loss of children. As each painful moment came and as each loving desire left, God was taking all the brokenness in my life, and He was piecing it together, so I could have the heart He desired...a heart that could understand and care, for others, who live in despair.
As of this year, I have ministered to many in need, for over 10 years and God continues to open new doors, for me to walk through. Now, I am serving Him full-time, through the Jesus Care Children Ministry, while I continue to reach out to others in need. One thing that God has taught me over the years, is that no matter what we lose or experience in life, He will always be there to pick up the broken pieces and fill the empty voids in our lives. At the most difficult and heartbreaking moments of my life, I have come to see, that God never abandons His own but rather, He exchanges the painful moments, for the true plan He has, for each of our lives.
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
