Paul writes in a letter to the Romans in Chapter 10: “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead–you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified. And it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved” (Romans 10:9-10).
I remind you of this verse because I think that some have a misconception about how to come to the Lord. They may think you need to have had a sin-free life or that he would not accept you into the kingdom if you’ve really messed up! The opposite is true. Paul said if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart you will be saved.
We are all God’s children and have an opportunity to follow his ways. I’m friendly and passionate about my faith. Having a relationship with Jesus through prayer, conversation, and reading the Bible is crucial. After being hit by a car while trying to cross the street on my way to school, I became paralyzed. It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk.
Today I homeschool classes at churches in the Detroit area. I teach creative and structured writing as well as other Language arts courses. I incorporate free writing, journals, essays, college prep, going beyond the five-paragraph, research papers and how to master grammar.
I’ve taught many subjects throughout the years. I’ve worked with special needs students and people from different backgrounds and cultures. My students’ ages have varied from kindergarten to adult. I have met many wonderful people! I’m blessed to keep in contact with so many of them.🥰
I’ve also worked as an English as a Second Language Instructor with adults who are from other countries and I’ve taught reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation and trained students to take standardized tests such as the TOEIC (a business placement exam) and the TOEFL (a test for college admission). I’ve tutored English to automotive execs at corporations like General Motors, Ford, Nissan, Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota.
I’ve taught numerous children and accumulated many jobs throughout the years. I began by running my own teaching services incorporating math and other subjects. I’m certified to teach Phonics and passed the Phonics First Foundations Level I and II Courses through sixty hours of classroom training. I’ve written over 200 articles. My guest posts have been featured in Christianity Today, the Southern Writers Magazine, the Breathe Conference website and the Salonpas blog.
I’m the author of the best-selling book, Not Without God: A Story of Survival. I’m looking forward to publishing my upcoming, Hope After the Storm. It will be the second in my II part series. I’m an active member of writer’s groups both off and online. I used to win story contests in the second grade, and I excelled at spelling bees. I like cooking, taking road trips, and trying new hairstyles!
