“I received the gospel of Jesus Christ and was saved at an early age. For the first eight years in Las Vegas, I was a Christian in name only, saved yet not living a life committed to God and for God according to Romans 12:1-2. After a series of life events and poor choices I was convicted of my sins, lack of righteousness and I was ashamed, much like the Prodigal Son. In July 2004 I confessed my sins according to 1 John 1:9 and joined a bible believing Christ centered church where I subsequently started and led a Women's Ministry.
In 2013 I was introduced to the Women's Resource Medical Centers. It was during a facility tour where my Heavenly Father confronted me about my life and the events that led me to sinful choices. Knowing that I was forgiven, I started HEART (Healing Education for Abortion Related Trauma) in February 2013. I was set free on June 9, 2013 from the guilt, shame and my self- condemnation. Jesus did what He promised in Luke 4:18 which was prophesied in Isaiah 61:1. Jesus said He would heal the brokenhearted, preach deliverance to the captive, recover the sight to the blind and set at liberty them whom are bruised. He did that for me.
I have a desire to listen to women who are struggling with the things I too had struggled with and to share God's truth with them, so that they can be like I am in Jesus Christ: forgiven, set free and ‘growing in the grace and knowledge of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both NOW and forever’ (2 Peter 3:18).”
