God loves you.❤️ He loves you because you are you, his child, the one he longs to be with. One day you will understand the importance of his profound existence.
He loves you the way you are, grace is not earned—it is freely given. If grace were given because of our “works” most of us would not benefit. Our works have not always demonstrated we should earn it.
God is able to pull you out of your past; so you can live fully in the present! There is no greater time than now to turn your life around. At times your path will not be easy.
Put away any arrogance, or sense of entitlement. 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” (Romans 10:9).
I remind you of this verse because I think that some have a misconception about how to come to the Lord. They may think they need to have had a sin-free life or that he would not accept them into the kingdom if they’ve really messed up. It’s not true.
This isn’t always a live your best life kind of path, at times it will be difficult. Those of us who follow God have suffered hardship and even rejection. Life isn’t always pleasurable. But following Jesus is not a one-time-event—he is continually molding and shaping us.
I’m passionate about my faith and friends. Having a relationship with God through prayer, conversation, and studying the Bible is crucial. After being hit by a car while trying to cross the street on my way to school at just sixteen years old, I became paralyzed.
It’s a miracle from the Lord I’m alive and able to walk. I use crutches (the kind with the rings around the arms), and I hope to one day walk without them. Some doctors predicted I would never walk again at all, so the progress I have made is huge.
I’ve home-schooled classes at churches in the metro Detroit area. I’ve taught creative and structured writing, grammar, essay, and other Language arts courses. I’ve incorporated free writing, journals, essays, college prep, the five-paragraph, research papers, and more.
I’ve taught many subjects, and I’ve worked with thousands of students from different backgrounds and parts of the world. I have a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts degree with a major in English and a minor in History. I also have an Associates in Liberal Arts degree as well. My students’ ages have ranged from kindergarten to adult.
I’ve worked as an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Instructor for many years and have teach grammar, reading, writing, vocabulary, pronunciation and have trained students to take standardized tests such as the TOEIC (a business placement exam) and the TOEFL (a test for college admission).
I’ve taught EFL to automotive managers and engineers 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 back in 2004 while incorporating many subjects.
I’m also certified to teach Phonics and have passed the Phonics First Foundations Level I and II courses.
I’ve written well over 500 articles. My guest posts have been featured in Christianity Today, the Southern Writers Magazine, the Breathe Conference website, the Salonpas blog, and the Suite T blog among many other places.
I’m the author of the best-selling book, Not Without God: A Story of Survival. I’m excited about my most recent, Not Without God: Hope In the Storm. It is the second in my II part, Not Without God, series.
I’ve been an active member of writer’s groups and have developed my own, “Writing Because I Can’t Not Write” group. I created it this past August. We meet on zoom every Friday and share our writing. Each person brings one to three pages for feedback. Some members just join and offer writing advice.
I have featured award-winning and national best-selling authors and speakers. If you have an interest in writing or want to write a book, make sure to contact me so I can get you involved.
With much love,
