I’ve always been creative, writing my first poem at age 6 and loving to draw. Although I dreamed of becoming an interior, graphic, or fashion designer, I was too afraid to pursue my passion and feared being a “starving artist” without financial stability.
After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Finance and a minor in Management Information Systems, I felt lost and aimless. I found myself trying to make music alone in a studio in Trenton, New Jersey. During this time, I began to ponder my purpose – it was the breeding ground for a pursuit of God.
Although I wasn’t raised in a church, I began searching for God in the Bible because I knew that my Christian family believed in heaven for believers. As I read through the Bible, I drilled down to the original Hebrew to better understand things that didn’t make sense. Despite researching contradictions in the Bible and arguments against the deity of Christ, I started to believe that the God of the Bible is the Most High God.
One night on my way home from a revival, I heard a voice telling me to “tell them” that God is real and people are being deceived. I spent months planning how to deliver this message and as I did, God ministered to my heart, revealing His love and the deity of Christ.
During a time of fasting and prayer, something told me that the close walk I desired with God would be lonely, which left me with a fear of life without a husband. That fear slowly overshadowed my pursuit of God and I eventually met someone who loved me in a new way and proposed within the first couple of months. However, before our son was born, I had to cancel our wedding.
As a single mother, I’ve faced relentless attacks from the enemy that have stifled my compulsion to testify of our Holy Father. But through these attacks, I’ve been driven back into a close embrace with God.
Now, I’m pursuing my passion with a renewed dependence on God and ever grateful for our close walk.
