I’ve found a home to walk in the path of God in, finally! A place that makes me feel comfortable. The lord said “Come as you are.” I came in so confused back in July. I came in confusion on many things. It wasn’t that I wasn’t sure of what I was doing, it was... Continue Reading →

I’m disabled, Not incapable ‼️💜
I’ve been battling Epilepsy since age 19.
