I want to encourage people from my life experiences. My life was miraculously changed during my walk with God, but especially in my battle with cancer. God revealed Himself to me in ways that I never knew, although being a saved Spirit-filled Christian. He also revealed me to me, meaning, I had to face the woman in the mirror. Although this is a continuous action, I’ve learned that there are levels that you go in Him, or should I say, grow in Him. The fact of the matter is: He takes you from faith to faith.
God started to stir up the gifts that were in me and let me know that they were for the benefit of others. For example, one gift is a Teacher. He told me to share this gift by writing and speaking. Through my writing, I will be candid about myself and what the Lord wants me to say to others. In fact, I want to be candid and say that God certainly uses the foolish to confound the wise because I have no degree; in fact, I used to be in special education for reading in elementary school. My first published work was in 8th grade.
Although I am not formally trained in writing, I read, study, and take online courses to grow in this area, stewarding the gift He put inside of me.
I’ve also operated in words of knowledge, diversity of tongues, interpretation of tongues, discerning of spirits, and prophecy as the Spirit leads me. Moreover, I never feel qualified enough, yet He told me that He sent and qualified me. What’s equally amazing is the grace God gives me to perform tasks for Him in and out of just writing.
The work is for His Kingdom. I am a Kingdom citizen. Glory to God.
My story is a testament to the goodness of God. I know that you can sit in the church building, speak in tongues with praise and worship, and still be far removed from the Lord.
My mission is to help other women by sharing what I have learned, to help them grow in their relationship with God, and show them that they can be free from bondage. Unfortunately, many are in bondage and don’t even know it, as I was. Thankfully, I’m not anymore. I will show you that you can live a victorious life right now, on earth, despite any circumstances you may find yourself in, and it’s to the Glory of God!
Coffee & Scriptures Devotional Book series
I have a series of books and devotionals that will be released in the coming years. The first in the series is called “Going Higher – 12 Weeks of Reflection for the Woman of God.” The Lord has geared my ministry towards women. He has been downloading so much information to me, and I am writing daily; however, I have to release when He says. I speak of the bible being my compass because that is how I live my life now. Of course, if you’ve read my bio, you know that wasn’t always the case.
The purpose of Coffee & Scriptures is to provide practical direction in your walk with God based on His word and my experiences. Each book will have real-life experiences, the Word broken down in a practical way, scriptures, questions, and prayers. I am very excited about this direction that the Lord is taking me in.
Sisterhood: Jewels, Ladies of Prayer
The Lord led me to start a prayer line in October of 2016 with 6 amazing ladies. I started with 6, and the Lord caused the increase. We have grown tremendously. We are more than a prayer line; we are a sisterhood. We motivate, uplift, encourage, and cover each other in prayer. In addition, we study the word of God and apply it to our lives. The Lord used this humble beginning and enlarged it into something greater. We have Sister Talk Conferences, and they are life-changing for all who attend!
Fellowshipping is an important part of spiritual growth in the kingdom of God, and I have a special affinity for my sisters, as I know the struggle and life woes. You see, I’ve been through so much in my life that “I am every woman.” (LOL) But seriously, I can relate to many with no problem and no side eyes because I’ve had so many experiences–good, bad, and downright ugly.
With that being said, I am being obedient. Our walk with the Lord is based on believing He is who He says He is, reading His word, and being submitted and obedient by actually applying the Word to our lives. We must walk this thing out, and we will see amazing results in our lives.
Woman of God, be encouraged. Life does throw us many twists and turns; however, the Lord God made us strong. We are capable of withstanding the toughest battles with Jesus at the helm.
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.” (Psalms 18:2)
Going Higher Together
I have a group on Facebook called “Going Higher Together,” where I broadcast LIVE every Wednesday from 7 PM EST and not only discuss my book (Going Higher, 12 weeks of Reflection for the Woman of God) but other topics. It is to build community and help each other with our daily walk. I talk about removing the mask, being transparent, and having a living faith. It’s a safe place to discuss the topics we, as women, face daily. Join me. Click here to join the group. I do not know if Facebook will be a permanent platform, so to stay in touch, sign up for my mailing list here.
Also, subscribe and watch My YouTube Channel, which will broadcast the show every Wednesday at 8pm EST. (check my social media for updates)
This will continue until the Lord shifts me in a different direction.
