About Me

Without making this page scroll on and on I’m going to try and give you the short version of my story while intermingling links within it so you can read even more if you so choose. 😉

I come from a family of 6 children (4 girls & 2 boys), a blessed stay-at-home mother and a faithful father who worked to support us kids and his wife, our mother.

That’s me in the pink pants. Wasn’t I just so cute. NOT! lol

Our family was that portrait of the typical American family where we ate dinner together every night, prayed at the table, went to church every Sunday morning, sibling rivalry, fighting with each other, spankings, restriction, responsibility and so on….

I came to know the Lord as my savior when I was 13 yrs old. I had been born and raised Catholic but my Dad started going to a Pentecostal church and after visiting once I was hooked.

You see, in 7th grade I started hanging out with the “wrong” crowd and in order for Mom and Dad to get a handle on me they decided to pull me out of public school and try the homeschool thing. My only outlet for friends was to hang out at church and boy did I ever. I went 3-4 times a week and was really enjoying getting to know this amazing God.

Then it happened! My parents came to us 3 remaining kids (the 3 older ones were now out on their own) and said they were moving us to Maryland and worse yet they were putting me back into the school system. OUCH! that hurt because I wouldn’t know anyone and I had been with my mom for 2 yrs. doing school work in the comfort of our own home.

One month before I turned 15 yrs. old we moved to Maryland where I would begin my sophmore year at a High School where I would see no familiar faces. :(

My Momma and I when I was 15 yrs. old going to Homecoming.

I tried out for the JV Cheer team and made it, as an alternate, but I made it. I started getting to know people, got a best friends and a boyfriend and High School turned out to be some of the best years of my life.

However, during High School I did rebel and did things I’m not to proud of but it made me stronger. My relationship with God suffered because there were no churches around that we could find that was like the church I left.

After breaking up with my high school sweetheart and right out of high school I met a guy, we got engaged, I got pregnant and we got married all within 4 months. The problem…I was still in love with my high school sweetheart but I didn’t want to admit it to anyone. Six months later I had a son and 2 yrs later we had a daughter.

Being 22 yrs. old, young, immature, selfish and living by my emotions, I divorced my husband and moved to Florida where I could be close to my family.

While in Florida I dated a few guys but nothing serious. Then I met a guy that I fell for petty hard and within a year I was pregnant. We never got married but had a daughter together. Through this part of my life things just kept going from bad to worse. I had been cheated on through out my entire pregnancy, mentally abused and things were going on that were completely against everything I believed in. I’ll share these things in more detail as we go along.

It was after many heart breaking experiences that I remember very clearly in October of 1999 I was sitting outside on my front porch. There was a little chill in the air and as I was sitting there I heard the voice of God whisper in my left ear, “It’s time for you to come back home. ” I looked to the left then to the right and there was nobody there.

Me with my beautiful children. It was just me, them and God for a little while.

My spirit knew who it was and I knew that it was time for me to go back home to the one who created me, the one who loved me unconditionally, the one who sacrificed so much for me and the one that was always waiting with open arms to take me back. So I ran right back to him and my faith!

I broke up with my daughter’s father, found a local church and dove right into the word of God.

Of course at this point I’m a divorced mother of three with 2 different fathers going through a custody battle but my faith was being restored along with my relationship with our heavenly Father.

Can I just say, God does know how to pick us doesn’t he? lol

I grew closer and closer to God, his word and was learning what gifts I had when I joined a Christian website where I could meet others and not feel like an outcast in the church.

Although the word was good and I was being edified, it’s unfortunate that there are those in the church that have not grasped the concept of loving those right where they are at. :(

But you know what? God used that site and those circumstances to bring me to my husband. On May 25, 2001 we were married on the beaches in Destin FL surrounded by all of our family and friends. This past May we celebrated 12 yrs. together. (Check out our story)

Billy and I heading to the Bahamas for the first time.

In those 12 years we have gone through some of the most trying times but we have held on to our faith, built our relationship on the foundation of Christ and are now ministering to many others about the things we have gone through.

My prayer is that this site would bring Glory and Honor to God by helping to set the captives free and teach others as I’m learning on how to Live Life Victoriously through the leading of the Holy Spirit, in the name of Jesus according to God Almighty.

The Motherhood of the Inside Out Pants

The Motherhood of the Inside Out Pants

I can’t believe it has taken me this long to let it go. All these years I have allowed it to consume me, anger me, frustrate me and literally brought me to tears. Yes, even tears! I use to love washing the dark clothes being that it consisted mostly of jeans which are so easy to separate, fold and put away. That was until I had kids! I would cringe when that day rolled around […]

Are we Spiritual Beings

Are we Spiritual Beings

I’ve always heard that we are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body. But I always wondered where in scripture that proves we are spiritual beings. What I found shocked me! Did you know that we were first created as spiritual beings before we were ever placed on this earth? Yep, that’s right! Starting all the way at the beginning of time (in the book of Genesis) God reveals to […]

What Does God Say About Me

If you will only open your eyes and ears to the scriptures you will see exactly what God says about you. To many times we are bombarded by the voice of the enemy when we need to be listening to that still small voice of our shepard. That voice that calms us, encourages us, leads us, guides us and wants us to know that we are so loved. As you read these scriptures, meditate on […]

Daily Devotions – Psalms 77

I remembered my songs in the night. ~ Psalm 77:66 When reading this devotion I was led to read Psalm 77 in its entirety and it really hit home to me. When we focus on our circumstances we get to burdened and weighed down but when we think/meditate on what God has done for us it builds our spirits back up. Read Psalm 77 below. 1 I cried out to God for help; I cried out to […]
