Once upon a time, I was only out to have the most fun. Crazy & reckless, I almost lost my life several times. But in my search for happiness, I was never able to find it. No matter what I did, I was still empty, longing for more. It was then that I found Jesus and fell in love with Him. It was the start of a new and fresh relationship. A total change in a different direction. But, unfortunately over time, in “working for God” I had lost my love and passion for Him.
God then sent me a wake up call that shook me! This drastically shifted my life, my work, my dreams and most importantly, my relationship with Him! Today, I am continuing on with my journey to find that “first love” experience that I once had with God. Learning to trust Him more and more in the most simplest of ways has only deepened my relationship with Him.
To be honest, this journey that I’ve been through, has been very painful! But it is these very experiences that I’ve been through, that has now given me the ability to help others to come out of their darkness and into the ligh
I was born and raised in the Islands of Hawaii. Being the oldest of four, I had many responsibilities at an early age. While in grade school, I had a bad experience that would leave me confused about my sexuality. I had really great friends in high school and college, but I never had a boyfriend. As I got older, I believed that there wasn’t anyone for me and I often got discouraged whenever I saw my friends having relationships and children.
In 2000, I attended a Church tent meeting in my little hometown and my life was changed! It changed when I realized that a man named Jesus Loved me so much that He voluntarily died for me! I got baptized in 2001, married in 2003 and had a child in 2004.
In the busy-ness of life & ministry, I became determined to be a “good” Christian. I made sure that my daughter & my husband were living up to what we thought a “good” Christian should look like. In the process of being a mother, a wife and a Christian, I lost myself. My relationship with my husband & daughter was wearing very thin, and I had become a very unhappy person. I realized that I was pretending to be someone who I was not.
God then sent me on a journey to find out who He really was. This led me to healthier relationships with my husband & daughter as well as to a healthier relationship with God. The TRUTH of who God really is has set me free from the chains of people pleasing & of pretending to be something I am not. I am now free to become the wife, mother and Christian, God really wants me to be.
