Healing Begins With Grace There are people hurting that truly have the purest hearts. Innocent children, family members…grieving from loss…sick from disease….overcoming financial tragedy. I have been that person. I lost my home last year, suffered countless private tragedies, health issues for me and my kids and almost lost my family. I went through things…
This story is not a love story of Disney proportions yet it is reminiscent of the greatest love story ever told. How many times in our life have we mocked or misjudged others for their past?

It wasn’t anything impressive or beautiful. It was just a worn piece of rope. The fact that it was scarlet, was because it was a rope signifying the whore was available for a good time.

“God pressed in my Spirit to stretch my faith. He showed me that He was ENOUGH and I did not need to rely on cards to prophesy or help others.
