Praise the Lord! I am excited to testify of the goodness of the Lord in my life. I am a native of South Carolina and I moved to Florida as a little girl with my parents and sibling. I attended high school in Miami, Florida. Upon completing high school, I was blessed to obtain a Government job at a young age and I remained there for 32 years until I recently retired.
I was blessed to come from a line of Evangelists and they prayed for all of us diligently that God would use us one day for His Glory. As a young girl growing up, I became a teenage mother and although it was hard raising a child at that age, God blessed me to be a good mother to my children. I was a little rebellious growing up because I had to deal with anger towards my mother for choices she made. As I matured, I realized that my mother loved me and God blessed us to have a beautiful mother/daughter relationship before she passed and I have no regrets.
I started to draw closer to God as I got older and the more I longed to know more about Him, He directed me to a wonderful church that preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I gave my life to Jesus Christ, but I had not surrendered to His will fully but this time, I knew I was given another chance to answer the call of God and I didn’t have the job or any worldly influences to hinder me. My mind is made up to serve the Lord.
My favorite scripture is Psalms 23:1 “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want”
