The Moment that Changed Everything

I can still remember exactly where I was when I got the news.

One of my dearest friends had just passed away at the young age of 42 from Colon Cancer.

She had done so much with her life, but always talked to me about how she wanted to do MORE.

She felt like she wasn’t in alignment with her true God-given purpose and so desperately wanted to live out her true purpose.

I’d encourage her and try to be an example before her.

But one day, it was just too late and she was gone.

I fell on my knees in prayer and committed to God right then and there to do everything I could to not let another person who was assigned to my life, die with their song still inside of them.

Dear World Changer,

I know it can feel scary when God is calling you to a new level.

Know that if you’re still reading this page, something about my message is calling to your heart.

Don’t ignore this nudge!

God uses specific people in your life to help you accomplish His purposes, and I am confident that He brought you right here, right now, for a reason.

Whether it’s your bank account, your time, or your fear that’s holding you back from saying a resounding yes to the dreams God has placed in your heart, we can work through those blocks together.

Faith over fear.
Courage over commonplace.

Stay focused.
Stay faithful.
