When you release the ugliness of your past, it loses its power and control over you. A deep healing can begin. Move beyond today and look toward tomorrow, which is full of hope, love, promise, and redemption. God is waiting to use you to fulfill your Kingdom Purpose.
I know we all have a story. Some quite tragic, bigger than life, while others, may be quietly going through the motions of the day, secretly wondering if there’s more to life. After ministering to women for a number of years, the desire to share with more women burned inside. I began writing my story, because in events I was facilitating in my ministry, I asked women to become vulnerable, share their experiences, so God could heal them and use them to accomplish His Kingdom purpose. If I was asking them to share, it was only fair that I shared too.
Unmasking the Many Faces of Love is my story, but with a twist.
Devotions are featured at the end of each chapter to encourage women to reflect on their lives, their stories, to begin to gain freedom from their pasts, bring those experiences into the light and unlocking how to use those experiences to minister to family and others in their lives.
I’m passionate about speaking at women’s events, conferences and gatherings to challenge women to embrace their stories, their lives and rise up to become warrior women for their families and in their community. Take the challenge…take off your mask and dare to be real and transparent. God is waiting to use you.
