I grew up in a home where fights, disputes, hurts and pains were the norm. Sibling rivalry was everyday living and some days you would have to choose which side you were on; Mummy’s or Daddy’s. At about nine years old my father left home and that was the beginning of a tumultuous journey for me; my home was increasingly becoming a war zone.
At the age of fourteen I became a victim of domestic violence and verbal abuse. Lost my virginity without my permission and became suicidal. Attempted suicide twice but GOD!!! I didn’t believe in God for a long time and blamed God for everything that happened to me, while I continued to make foolish decisions.
As I grew older, I became a rebel. Fights every day, poor behaviour at school: I was the typical misfit in society.
Drugs, sex and alcohol became so familiar to me.
My self-esteem was so low and to look into the mirror was daunting. I didn’t believe that I was beautiful or anything worth looking at. Hid behind my walls of ignorance, selfishness and anger. Messed up a lot of great opportunities and turned down a lot of life changing chances.
I couldn’t imagine being a wife or mother, simply because I didn’t see what God was seeing in me. My marriage was on the rocks many times…BUT GOD!!
I used what we all have and that is CHOICE. I CHOSE to do better and by the Grace of God I am here. I am delivered from the stronghold of rejection, abandonment and low- self esteem. I am FREE in Jesus Christ.

Today, I am a proud wife, biological mother of three, have many others that I claim as my own. I had an ugly past but I was determine to have a beautiful future. The limitations that beset me, I made them into opportunities.
I have learnt that the enemy is more afraid of the woman I would become as oppose to the woman I am now. As a result, he interferes with the woman I am now to block the woman I am to become. Therefore, I act and treat with the woman to come and that woman requires prayer, focus and obedience to God, to come forth: I am doing just that.
My mission is to help others fulfill their purpose and bring them to a place of acceptance of who God has created them to be. To understand that there is a genius inside them and prove that they have what it takes to bring forth that genius. I found value in my pain which activated my purpose.
