‘Your life is going to change forever’

I was brought up in a belief system that said that I was a sinner from birth and that I was flawed. The God that I learned about was loving, yet judgmental. I never felt good enough to live up to His demands. For a young girl who wanted to be obedient to God, this was very confusing and frightening. When I was younger I wanted to ask God why I was a sinner, but I never did. I thought God would get mad at me for asking a mindless question. Who was I to challenge God?

In my early adulthood I sought other ways to learn about God. This spiritual quest lasted many years. 

A few years ago, I was faced with several pressing issues: I needed healing in a number of family situations, I required major dental work that was beyond my financial means, and most importantly, I was looking for clarity on my life’s purpose. I knew what work I wanted to be involved in, but I didn’t know what direction to take in my career.
