Hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. - Romans 5:5 (NIV)
I speak at leadership conferences for businesses and organizations. I like to start my sessions by asking the group a question to spark conversation: If you were going to be deserted on an island all by yourself, what one item would you choose to take with you and why?
God gives me strength to endure all my trials.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
