God has saved me and made me a new person and I hope that with these new eyes I may find insight. I believe that insight comes from within, whatever is within you is what you will draw from. Jesus is within me and in my daily quiet times and picking up my cross I am learning how to mold my thoughts, actions, vocabulary and life to honor and glorify him. The travesty that this world has come to breaks my heart and I'm determined to use my life to do whatever is within my power to help make a difference and impact the world, hopefully for Christ, one day and one life at a time. The world didn't get this way following Christ. It didn't get bored or lost and it's time to turn things around and into the light. Human Services is my calling, my passion. I love to help people, I never meet a stranger, and writing is a talent God gave me that I am learning to use to hopefully not only show what He has brought me out of, but to eventually be able to honor and glorify Him through. I know that I have this passion for a reason and I'm looking to embrace it. I've been in some dark places and the Grace of God and the love and support of the true family and friends that I have brought me out. I was left alone in a place where death was the only person who wanted to hold my hand and letting go of pain, darkness, and all of the things that attract the person before my change in Christ has been a struggle like no other to come out of. I am a Christian and it is a process that I'm going through. I write in hopes that my works will have a positive effect on someone. That I could maybe express for someone all those thoughts, feelings, emotions, fears, etc. that they had never felt before and couldn't verbalize and define them better than they could have ever dreamed and show them that they are not alone and that they will get through it. I want to use my writings to save the same way writing saves me. Shakespeare is phenomenal but he's got nothing on my God, who is the perfect poet. "We read to know that we are not alone." ― C.S. Lewis -A prime example of why writing is so important to me. I specialize in special needs under the MOST ministry. I'm learning music therapy to help open up doors with Autism. I also focus on suicide prevention and problematic children and teens. God saved me from the darkness. Suicidal tendencies, and self injury, and so many travesties and blessed me with freedom!
