This website development was born, March 23, 2009,
from a deep cry within my spirit. I was going through
an onslaught of terribly harsh situations.
I was wounded, hurt, devastatingly shocked, and tired.
These messages were born in prayer, bathed in tears,
and founded on the Word of God.
This website draws heavily upon God's Word.
Our views do not speak for or to any specific religion. We believe Spirituality
extends far beyond the known and observable realm of worldly barriers and
designations perceived between ourselves and others.
It is important when pain comes our way to honor the experience. Even the most
painful events always contain hidden blessings. As painful as many of the hard
knocks have been... some of my most precious lessons learned... have been in the
school of affliction. Many of the painful and difficult situations I have gone
through have been my greatest teachers who taught me powerful life lessons I
would not have learned any other way.
While in the classroom and season of my pain I discovered blessings, growth,
conviction, strength, and purpose. I became an honor student in the school of hard
knocks and discovered, first hand, that God is able to use even the most painful
suffering for good.
I have come to realize through many of these difficult experiences... that the
afflicted can be most effective. Tragedies, sorrows, and sufferings can be blessings
As painful as many of the hard knocks have been... many of the heinous
situations I have gone through have been great groomers and pruners for character
building. I am grateful to witness the pain and the many disappointments giving
way to, what I believe are, God's mighty appointments.
The knowledge, observations, and up-close experiences have helped me to grow
in my spiritual walk and equipped me with extremely meaningful and
worthwhile life lessons that may be beneficial to others.
Those painful experiences have become my spiritual work and service.
Some of our virtual chapters, in this website, will touch on many of the trials and
tribulations, by the grace of God, I have been blessed to pass through.
These meaningful and worthwhile experiences, although painful, have and are
richly educating and enriching my life. They have proven to be extremely
useful and relatable to anyone who needs to change their direction. They have
been a reminder of what is important in life, Who we should put our trust in,
and Who we can always depend on.
We believe some of the richest, fullest, and most fruitful lives are those lives that
have been in the crucible of testing and tribulation.
Having a heart for God does not equal human infallibility.
There are times when we all regrettably do things and speak without thinking first,
make bad judgement calls, and behave immaturely. In other words, none of us are
incapable of making mistakes or being wrong.
We know that we cannot open someone's heart to
God's Truth, but God can.
God has moved the hearts of people throughout history to achieve His plans and
purposes for each generation. God is able to use any of us to influence, the
aristocratic and kingly, the governors, the bureaucrats, dignitaries, the pauper, and
the working class to work toward His purposes.
God chooses anyone He desires, regardless of their accomplishments, skills, or
special experiences. We are fully aware that God does not necessarily call the
equipped; but God equips the called.
God has a way of orchestrating a series of unlikely events that will work together
for our good. God is well aware of what is going on behind the enemy lines and
He knows exactly what it will take for us to become His mighty warriors.
God delights in taking what the eyes of the world may
see as worthless, meaningless, insignificant, and
unimportant to do the most extraordinary things. The
Scriptures can certainly back up these claims.
We believe, good goals are living breathing statements of who we are becoming,
and they should not be motionless, inflexible, fixed representations of what we
may have once longed for.
Our goal is not to secure applause and/or accolades. Applause and accolades, to
flatter and stimulate the ego, are empty and fleeting. We believe, good goals are
living breathing statements of who we are becoming. They are not motionless,
inflexible, fixed representations of what we may have once longed for.
Our goal is to humbly remain driven to do God's Will,
despite what we can or cannot see.
☆We know that all things in Heaven and on earth are under God's authority.
☆We know that God has a purpose and plan for our lives, and God's plans for us
are far superior to our ambitions.
☆We know that God has a way of orchestrating a series of unlikely events that
will work together for our good.
☆We know that God, Who breathed life into us loves us enough to plan for our
☆We know that God has promised that if we will seek Him, we will find Him,
and we will also discover His Will for our lives.
We are taught that if we
“Seek this first, all the other things shall be
added unto us.”
“As we keep on asking, we will receive what we ask for. Let us keep on
seeking, and we will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to us.
For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who
knocks, the door will be opened”
☆We know that during times of testing God strengthens and builds our character
and revives our soul with new insights and deeper revelations. He gives us
wisdom, and fills us with joy, even in the midst of it all. And out of our
greatest tests comes... our greatest testimonies!
☆We believe glorifying God begins with agreeing with everything God says,
especially about Himself.
We know that God's thoughts and ways are not like ours. As I open my eyes to the
incredible work God is doing around me, I am awed by His wonderful deeds and
unfathomable kindness to me. God's marvelous ways have brought me to a
humble recognition of the magnitude of His goodness, greatness, dominion,
majesty, and might... all of which I am totally undeserving of.
I trust God's ways completely.
“Do all to the glory of God.”
We believe this is the first principle of all godly life. The “Glory of God”—the
carrying out of God's Will.
We know that we cannot open someone's heart to
God's Truth, but God can.

Just as our ancestors generously passed-on pearls of wisdom to us... we are freely
sowing seeds so that future generations may reap the vital life lessons we learned,
