All Things

As A Christian I often times get worried and step out of God’s protection but I have to remember God has my back and will never let me down. To keep myself in constant company of God’s word I started to write down scriptures and put them wherever I’m at for a long period of time so that when my thoughts felt overwhelming with fear … Continue reading All Things

Embrac Your Journey

It has been quite while since I’ve wanted to share anything in my life but today I have decided writing and sharing my life is the best medicine and could be helpful to other’s in a lot of ways.

I am a woman after God’s own heart, I am a sinner who has chosen to not stay down but get back up, I’m a mom of two beautiful young adults, I’m married…., I am a woman who is finally listening to God about making my talents given by Him into a business that has blessed other’s with some of my products.

In my pain I’ve listened to God say pour all this negative energy into doing something good with what you have already been given and here I am. I started my business some 3 years ago with no real direction or passion but as things got crazier in my life God sent people to my shop wanting things for themselves that actually began pulling me out of my darkness. A Christian woman asked for something motivational so I went looking for material with words of that nature on it and the more I looked the more I found things that were speaking to my heart in ways I’ve never known before. It wasn’t until the end of 2018 that I finally got the courage to stand with God as my guide so that some much-needed healing, growth, and my true purpose could come forth.

Embrace Your Journey….

I made a decision to embrace my journey no matter where God took me on it because with Him nothing is going to hurt me (at least not permanently anyway) and with Him all things can become possible!
