I was raised with Jehovah's Witness beliefs and was terrified of God; I believed He didn't love me. In school I was bullied relentlessly and spent most of my childhood without friends. They made fun of me for being me and for being of a different ethnicity. I loved to write songs and poetry and busied myself with the stories I made up about intricate worlds and peoples and tried to shelter my mind from the realities without. I dreamt of the day I would leave school behind. 

 

As an adult I married and went into the corporate world and strove to make all the money I possibly could and to build my dream house. We built the dream house, but then that dream collapsed, as we divorced after less than 5 years of marriage. Despite our differences and our problems, we remarried and held on to our shaky marriage for a few more years.

In 2008, I heard the gospel message that I was a sinner in need of a Savior, and I called out and asked for forgiveness. I was a Christian, but my life did not immediately change, as I was still wrapped up in many old ways of being. I became sick and needed to be taken care of in almost every way.

After God raised me back up to health, He began to bless me with songs that I began to write,  a music ministry, radio ministry, several blogs, and children's ministry. In 2015, He blessed me with my miracle baby, Joy. Our life has had indescribable difficulty, and I say this only because I do not want to give the impression that the life of a Christian is only one of sunshine and roses, but I am indeed very blessed, and it is all because of Him.
