COMMENTS SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA:

“Time to be honest. So this weekend consisted of drowning every harsh & negative word of rejection & anything less than worthy said to me or placed in my mind from the pit of hell. It consisted of realizing Satan isn’t after me but the God inside of me. Figuring out that when we focus on these worldly blessings we forget the Blesser. When people say we are crazy, no, we are crazy for Jesus. I remembered that Jesus breaks the bondage between us & whatever yolk we have. He breaks the bondage & breaks through our brokenness. Everything besides Him is dead. We need changed people not Christian people. That freedom comes when you open your heart & it starts with surrenderance. That God is in wild pursuit after my heart. I have come to know that I need to open my heart fully to Him, not 98% but FULLY. I am ready to faith it till I make it.”

“Wow. BEST DAY EVER. My heart is overflowing as to how God has blessed me. SO SO PURE. This girl is truly living beloved through her brokenness & how redeemed through her ragged pieces. How glorious is it to see others live as part of the TEAM OF THE REDEEMED!!!”

“OPEN HEARTS | Philippians 4:8-9 | It’s been a while where I’ve seen so many strong, passionate women speak truth about finding their true identity as a daughter of Christ. I hope I never stray from this truth.
