My Story

Everyone goes through the rain. The wind blows you from right to left. But it’s how you choose to direct yourself. With  our Father up above we can handle all things. With our hearts open and our hand up high. We can succeed through the rain and all pain.

As I was growing up I had a hard time I was a loner, I felt older than my age, in school it was so very difficult learning did not come easy for me reading, writing, spelling and comprehension was difficult. I suffered with ADHD, depression, social delay, dyslexic, I had a IEP and I was in special classes.

My brain was always in a fog the people who new about my problem didn’t help and as I got older the new people in my life I would hide my issues from them because I was embarrassed or I knew they would see me differently.

My grandmother told me to pray I didn’t understand why or what that would do at the time but it helped. It made me feel like I was not alone that someone was there listening to me.

Who I was then and what I went through at a young age made me who I am today, I am someone who is understanding, who is caring, who loves, who is at peace and someone who wants to help others.
Growing up I wanted to be a doctor or a social worker but life got in the way so I struggled to find my way, who I was, what was my purpose in life. This voice came over me and told me to help and so that is what I did I work in a group home, I’m a PCA worker I was a Advocate for the homeless and now I work for V.O.R.C  This company is for victims and offenders we strive to help those in need of housing, guidance, and the teaching of peace be still. This program is amazing with what we do now and what we will strive to do in the future.

The sun will always shine. Your life is what you make of it. The people in your life are who you see fit to be in your life. Many thing might try to block your sun light. With faith, love and understanding. Your light will always shine so bright.
