I am Nothing, without God
Sharing what God puts on my heart and my story to encourage and empower others to live fruitful & satisfying lives with Christ!
National Suicide Prevention/Awareness
I have shared in the past about my suicide attempts and how I was plagued by suicidal thoughts for over 20 years. By the grace of God, I am a walking-breathing testimony to his mercy.
While having a relationship with God is important, he created us for community. We were designed to help encourage and build each other up in this world that likes to isolate and tear people down. Even if they won’t admit it everyone has tough times in life. It is absolutely okay to reach out to others for help. I never did and I know that was a mistake and added to why I suffered for so long. If you don’t have anyone in your life that you can reach out to there are plenty of free resources you can use I have listed just a few below.
I want to encourage you today that you are not alone. Others including myself have suffered or are suffering. God said he would never leave and forsake us. Even though at the time I didn’t have a relationship with God I know he was there with me.

If it wasn't for God I would not be here. Seems cliche but it's the complete truth. I have come close to death a few times, I am a living testimony to God. I am far from perfect. I don't have all the answers. I do feel like God wants me to share words of encouragement and share the testimonies (stories) of my life. I pray that all that read what I write are encouraged and empowered to not give up, no matter what this life throws at you, and to seek God for wisdom.
