After the loss of my mother and father within months of each other, I found it hard to recover from such emotional pain. I lost all joy for life and hope for the future. I was depressed and suicidal and did not know how I was going to go on. My life began to change for the better when I decided to give my life to God. This is when I began falling in love with Jesus and finding my purpose. Because I found my way back to a life of joy, peace and purpose, I have been called to assist others in redirecting their lives and using their unique gifts/talents to build a bright future; to turn a destructive destiny into a divine destiny.
