About Me

When I finally said yes to the Lord I was 33 years old,. It was quite traumatic, and then He led me to the Fort Wayne Bible College. I developed a real passion to help people find their way out of the stuck places of life. I went to a Christian College and graduated with their Christian Counseling Degree, minoring in Theology. I have been practicing faith counseling for 42 almost 43 years. I teach small groups, I mentor teens, I mentor adults. In addition to that I participate in a Prayer Team Group that teaches people about Spiritual Warfare Techniques. I wrote a book called "Fretting, Fussing, Stewing and Steering". (Letting go of things that pull us down). And, then Fix Your Future so it does not Reflect Your Past (Embracing Emotional Forgiveness).
