I’m 28 years old and I’m from a small town in Mississippi. When I was 8 years old, my life story begins. My mother died in front of my face while I was talking to her from a disease called Lupus. There were never really any positive role models or females in my life. When I was 11 my grandmother died of Cancer. By the time I was 14, my family told me I was nothing and I would grow up to be nothing. They called me everything but my name, they turned completely against me. As a result, my self-esteem was completely shot. In life, I always felt like I wasn’t pretty enough, thick enough, tall enough or good enough for anything. I turned to ungodly things for love or attention. By the time I was 19 years old, I became a mother. By the time I was 23 years old, I tried to commit suicide.
My turning point was when God and I met face to face. That’s when I finally said, “I surrender to Your Will, I will do whatever you say.” At that time, I was tired, heartbroken and I was tired of living life in sin. I went through Hell. I was living from place to place. There were times I remember sleeping on someone’s floor. There were days I would go hungry just so my son would have food to eat. Finally, I told God it has to be a better way out, I didn’t care what I had to do I had to make a better future for my son and me. At this time, I had no choice but to stepped out on faith, I moved to Atlanta, Ga, I knew no one there. I was hired in education but that still wasn’t enough. I was tired of living from paycheck to paycheck, so I asked God to open more doors for me and that’s when I became a self-published author. After that my life changed forever. I became an entrepreneur and my ministry started growing. No matter what you have been through God will make a way for you. Once you see an opportunity that comes your way, take action. God says all things are possible through him.
“Trust me you can win. Change your life and walk into your purpose!”
I’m an author, entrepreneur, and public speaker. At the young age of 23, I fully committed myself to God, letting Him take total control of my life, and started my own ministry, Glory Nation. My life purpose and mission are to experience and share God’s Glory, to fulfill God’s promises, and to help others become closer to Jesus Christ to find their life purpose.
