“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them. ~ Matthew

I just knew that the love I felt in my heart came with a sense of freedom and I believed that anythin
“I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.” ~ II Corinthians 6:18 Have you ever found yourself asking the question: Who am I? What is my purpose? Why am I here? Growing up, I found myself asking these questions from as early as I could remember. As a little girl, I couldn’t quite figure out where I fit in.

'I am my beloved's and His desire is toward me.' ~ Song of Solomon 7:10 I love writing. I feel I can express my deepest feelings and thoughts on paper without holding back.
