I grew up in the Lord’s church, however, my life has not always reflected that. I let other people’s actions dictate my life in a very self destructive way. If there was a wrong choice to be made, you can trust that I’ve probably made it. This made my journey to finding God really hard. If God loved me, why would He allow these things to happen? Then later, my question became: how could God forgive me of my choices when I couldn’t forgive myself or others? However, I think my story and experiences give me a greater empathy and understanding of the struggles we face as women. Our God is so good and loving and we are made in His image, so we need to love ourselves too. I am not a polished speaker, and I do not have all the knowledge or experience as a lot of ladies day speakers. I can offer encouragement and strength through hard times though, and a better understanding of the grace that God so freely gives.

I also lived in Tanzania, Africa for half a year and have continued to make trips there. I have spoken at a couple Ladies Days on mission work. (Once again, I’m not the most experienced, but better late then never!) I have a huge passion for sharing the gospel, in and out of our country. I love talking about how to reach the lost and the compassion we need to have when doing so. Sharing the gospel means more people will come to know our Savior and be saved, which means there will be more people in Heaven with us one day worshiping our God for eternity. What a beautiful day that will be.

Parkway Church of Christ
Savannah, GA

Originally from the small community of Nesmith, South Carolina, I was raised and baptized at Hemingway, South Carolina Church of Christ, a place where I attribute much of my foundation of faith, soul-stirring compassion, and very deep love for Christ, but give my mom most of the credit for instilling those qualities in me, and yet I didn’t know Him, I just knew about Him.
After leaving home, I found myself intently looking for the purpose and meaning of life and in myself. Whether that was in people or in relationships, I poured my whole heart into my search. I also became very consumed with what people thought of me and was living for the acceptance of the world.
At my lowest point, I felt like I was sinking, and I couldn’t breathe, when GOD reached out HIS hand to me and I took it. I acknowledged that He sent Jesus to die on the cross so that I can be saved from my sin and have eternal life. I decided to live for God instead of others and began defining my faith for myself and spent much time doing so.
Since becoming HIS daughter, God has shown me that I do not have to earn my salvation or His love. He has given me fulfillment and purpose and joy. I am not perfect, and I still mess up, but God loves me despite my faults and inadequacies….I found His grace! He continues to manifest Himself to me thru His Word and thru His Spirit.
Through all that, I became a wife and mother which has given me the greatest joys of my life and yet has taught me that God will never leave me or forsake me.
With that, I praise HIM as long as the Spirit gives me utterance to do so. I declare His goodness, mercy, love and his discipline. I teach His word so people will know Him and thru all this, I am truly fulfilled in doing so!

I am 44 years old, married with 2 children and 1 grandchild. I have been evolved in church since I was born! I am very passionate about working with teens and ladies to make sure they know their own self worth. So many have low self esteem and through my struggles that I love to share with others I try to bring hope to everyone that through Christ all things are possible. Most of my speaking involves empowering, motivating, learning to love yourself just the way God made you! I also try to help everyone find the gift that God gave each one of them.
