The first post

Updated: Feb 28, 2023

Here goes a new adventure! Before I start going into the details of my life for all the world to see, I want to share a little backstory. My full testimony is already in my book: "From Darkness to Light: Stepping Out From the Shadows of Depression (available on Amazon" But for those not ready to go check that out, I will give you the preview.

The name of this blog comes from 3 things I identify as – I am a daughter of the king (first), a warrior, then a mom. I am a single mom of an awesome 6-year-old boy. I came out of a domestic violence relationship 6 years ago. My son and I went into a discipleship program (East Texas Dream Center, now known as the H Town

Dream Center) and the first day in the program, I gave my life to Christ at Lakewood Church. I also used to deal with depression and suicidal thoughts until I was set free from those. That's kind of what my book is about.

I was working full-time in HR/Payroll but that changed just last week so I am on a job hunt but using my time wisely. Starting this blog is something I've used that time to do.

I am a leader in my church in the outreach area, and I love what I do there! My heart is for the lost. I also serve on the prayer team. Serving God is something I absolutely love to do.

The one thing I will say, and I hope you will see is Jesus is the Lord of my life, He is my everything, my faith is the central part to who I am. I can promise you that you will hear about the Bible here, but I won't throw it at you.

Being a Christian mom, and a single one at that, is definitely not easy. But it’s worth it. So, if you’re interested in hearing my stories and about my life, tune in and I am happy to share! I intend to share most of the details of my life. I am a bit nervous throwing all of that out there for the world to see and for some people to judge – yes I said that. I bet I almost lost half the audience just when I said “Lakewood Church.” Did I mention I am going to be very transparent and real in these posts? No? Well I am. Honestly though, I just hope that this helps you in some way.

I do hope to share some things as I come across them too so let me be up front and say you may see some links to products. But my promise to you is I will do my research before I share anything. If I share a product with you and you click to purchase it, I will receive a commission for said product. Am I going to spam you with every latest new thing? Absolutely not. But I wouldn’t mind earning a little money on the side while doing this.

So, if you’re still with me – welcome to my blog!
