I love music. God fearing. Compassionate. I am a great friend, daughter, cousin, girlfriend, hairstylist, poet, & thinker. I am a humanitarian. My belief is, you owe it to life to be giving to someone else. I have a high moral background. I am a dreamer. As long as you have a dream, life should keep you busy. I am believer that all things are possible. I’m an artist so I think outside of the box. I’m very creative so I don’t take no as option for me. Organized to the point that I can’t function in confusion. I can be the life of the party & I also like spending time alone. And I love taking naps.
How do you find time to connect with God?
I wake up earlier than I need to. Start each day in prayer to talk to God & meditate to hear from God. Worship at church on Sundays & I attend weekly bible study. Twice a week, I fast for clarity or purpose. I pray throughout the day & share Him with anyone who knows Him or needs to get to know Him.
