Other fun things to know about me:
I love to sing! I am a worship leader and love to worship and praise the Lord for His goodness.
I believe I am a combination of both an extrovert and introvert. I am bubbly and bring optimistic energy. I LOVE to meet people and have fun, but other times I just rather be a home body, chill and do nothing!
I choose to wear what I feel is comfortable, which most times is athletic wear…..but when a special event happens, or I am on vacation…Mama knows how to step out and shine.
All in all, nothing is by coincidence, just the Lord ordering my steps.
All the opportunities and experience I have gained led me to beautiful and HEALTHY relationships. I have learned a lot and I’m still growing and developing.
Join me in this beautiful yet complex journey. We ALL have a story. The key is how we treasure our health through it all because without it we cannot maximize our potential. Our health is indeed our wealth.
Stay healthy and blessed y’all!
