Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
From a young age I was taught by my parents to say “please” and “thank you.” When I was ten years old my mother died, and my grief was profound. Her death left a vast emptiness in my heart, and at that age I simply could not comprehend it all....
I can rest assured that God’s love will sustain me.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
