This is my story...
To my family I am Honey, Momma and Mima (grandma). To others, I can be a leader, reverend, teacher, facilitator, friend, sister or coach. But before I was any of these titles, I was LOST.
I gave birth to my firstborn at the age of 19. I had just finished graduating from high school and having a baby was not something I had planned. My parents had sent me to the United States from Puerto Rico so that I could get a better education. When my family found out that I was pregnant, I became a disappointment to many of them.
Then, my second child was born when I was 21. That year, grief hit home. I lost my father and my brother only three months apart. It was a dark season of my life. I carried that pain and suffering for many years.
In the midst of financial and emotional struggles in my life, a divorce with the father of my children occurred after a 10-year marriage. As a new single mother, things became a bit more difficult than I expected, but my children were my inspiration.
I managed to take online courses and completed my degree in accounting all while working three jobs to provide for my children.
Through all of this, I was talked down to, discouraged and hopeless. I felt I reached my lowest point. So, I searched for help. I attended Life Coaching sessions to gain more clarity. I began attending church and surrounding myself with a different group of people.
I had a true encounter with God and from that point forward I developed a relationship with my creator, the owner of my life, the lover of my soul, my God, Lord and Savior! If it wasn’t for that encounter, I would not be here today.
Words of Encouragement
Now, I have the privilege of serving as a Minister, as a Christian Life Coach. Teaching the gospel and guiding souls to find clarity on the purpose God has already written for their lives.
What I’ve learned looking back is that experiences build our character and there is always a greater purpose.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. – Proverbs 3:5-6
