I am a mom of 5 . I have endured so many tragedies in my life, things I believe that should have killed me. I often wonder how is it that I am not on drugs or an alcohol, however I have realized it is the Grace of God that has kept me for greater and better things in order for me to encourage others. And that is what I hope to do here.
