I believe in the power of purpose. Join me as I walk through both my traumatic experiences and triumphant victories to reveal that even in our dark places in life, God never stops shining his light. From a young child I was certain of my future, but as lack of faith and bad choices reframed it, God took my unplanned misfortune and painted his masterpiece. Through these experiences, lessons, and blessings, I learned that we only become prisoners when we allow other things and people to change the course that God set for us. My story further reveals that nothing or no one can take from you what God has placed before you; we are only lost along the way. In spite of hopelessness, suicide, abuse, homelessness, and poverty, he said I would survive. God spoke life into me, into my purpose, thus into this book so that anyone who read it would be led out of their dark places into his light, therefore breaking free of their prisons and reaching their purpose as well. I am blessed to share with you all what strikes the core of our lives and peels away the layers of our existence to reverse the negative impact of society, self-hatred, lack of faith, and gross ignorance.
