Her prayer is that each of us will allow God to give us a vision of our personal call to serve in ministry, and that others will never venture to impede that vision. She truly believes that God loves us so much; He is bound to encourage us to share our gifts with others.

 

One of her favorite scriptures both in the military and in ministry is……..Romans 12:1

 

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
