About “Quiet Moments”:
It is with great excitement and gratitude that I share the messages, poems, and not-so-random thoughts given to me by the Holy Spirit and in which I have incorporated my photography. I have enjoyed capturing God's beauty through my lens since I was a child.
I began my journey to learn how to be still and listen to God after a life-changing year that included multiple broken bones, a tragic car accident that took the life of my sister, multiple surgeries, physical therapy, and the loss of both parents only six days apart.
But God spared my life and gave me a new perspective. I realized He is in control, and I needed to start paying attention. He began to show me images and give me messages through the Holy Spirit.
I hope you enjoy these Spirit-led messages and poems as much as I enjoyed receiving them. It is my prayer for each person to find comfort, peace, and joy within these pages. The living waters of the Holy Spirit pour into us and overflows, so we can pour into the lives of others. May you find grace and love for yourself and others.
About “Beyond Yourself”:
This book is my story of how God brought good out of a very bad situation in my life and brought me back from a dark path, into His marvelous light. He saved me from myself, an abusive relationship, and so much more.
This book should come with a warning label to the people in my life who had no clue about the secret life I was living before I became a Christ follower.
My life as a Christ follower began in 2013 after a life-changing year of tragedy and heartbreak, not to mention a few broken bones and losing both parents only six days apart. I firmly believe God saved me for a reason and that He has a purpose and plan for my life.
He showed me a different path than I had ever traveled before. Once I realized how to be still, listen to God, and allow the Holy Spirit to work in my life, I found my purpose in writing the messages He gives me, and I enjoy sharing them to encourage others and lead them to Christ.
He used a horrible year to change my life forever. I felt compelled to write this book not only for my own healing, but if even one person who reads it is touched, inspired, or encouraged in some way, it is worth it. I find it very ironic that God has me revealing the things I hid for so long.
My life is not my own. I was purchased with His blood. I believe it is my duty to respect my body, guard my heart, and put on the whole armor of God every day as I surrender myself to Him in every way. As a faithful servant of Christ, I am humbled and grateful for His grace and forgiveness.
