God's Plan for Redemption
For the first couple of years after 9/11, I had no direction whatsoever. I couldnt go back to work, I could barely leave the house from
fear. One night, alone in my room, I had reached my lowest point. Having come to the end of myself, I had no where to go, but to God.
He was the only thing bigger than the memories that tormented me day and night.
I called out to Him, and He rescued me. I honestly felt his love.
From that night, I am persuaded that God's provision is for our wholeness, healing and spiritual prosperity through Him whose shed
blood guarantees a life without chains...no matter the situation.
Helping Others with a Message of Hope
Today, my life is about helping others to realize God's power in their lives, so that they too can be overcomers. I am grateful to be able
to travel the world and speak at various venues with this message of hope beyond suffering and grace beyond worthiness. Working in
shelters, with homeless and recently in the fight for improved quality of life for black people, my passion is to live an authentic life before
the Lord, representing His works.

Then at 8:43 a.m. on September 11, 2001 everything changed.
She explains. I was in my office on the 36th floor of The North Tower when a Boeing
747 airplane slammed into my building. Initially I was in shock and had no idea what had
happened. No one did. We reacted like robots, walking down the stairs through the
narrow staircase. I was one of the last ones to escape the building just before it fell.
I lost 22 of my friends, was diagnosed with severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and
lost everything that I had worked for. Unable to return to work, eventually my son Eliot
and I became homeless.
