Each and every day that I am blessed to wake up is the best day of my life. I am a free spirit and passionate about many things. My goal is to inspire and share with others how you can overcome obstacles in your life. I know that I am still learning and when people can learn together, we can make a difference. The obstacles in my own life are the ones that I have allowed and I truly want to break those strongholds so I can become a better person. If we all strive to the best that we can be and show others that they can do the same thing, just imagine what an amazing world we would live in.

Who am I? I am a daughter, a sister, a mother, a grandmother, a friend, and most importantly I believe that my faith is the greatest foundation any woman could have in her life. My faith has sustained me through the trials and has brought great joy throughout my time on this earth.

When I was a little girl I wanted to be a nurse like my mother. However, life had other things in store for me. I lost my mother at a young age and life as I knew it changed forever. A wonderful aunt and uncle stepped in to raise children who were not their own. I was determined to make something of my life and worked hard in school. Of course, boys became a distraction when I was about 15 and my grades were not what they could have been. My greatest interest in school was music, and it still is to this day. I loved to sing and choir was the one thing that kept me out of trouble. I graduated, went to college, got my Associates Degree, and then got married. We had a very successful construction business and I learned the day-to-day operations of the business part of the company. The greatest blessings came in the form of two precious sons who are now grown men. A wonderful addition has been a beautiful 'daughter' and two of the cutest grandsons ever!

My life has been filled with many blessings and I continue to grow. Learning is something I plan to do until the day I die. I've worked as a secretary, independent contractor, retail sales clerk, and substitute teacher. There is no end to what we can do when we set our mind to it. Now I am learning everything I can about natural remedies and using essential oils for better health. I can honestly say that today is the best day of my life!
