What can I do?

heart and mind

So many emotions have stirred in me like a tornado. Anger, sadness, helplessness and more… but thank God the emotions resolved at hope. After reading and posting, petitioning, and praying God allowed me to see hope and I would love to share that HOPE with you.

All month I will be posting practical steps to find inner peace. I will share with you tools that you and I can use to make change in our community. Change starts in the heart and in the home. Let’s become better , stronger, more caring through this. Lets change our mentality from caring about one, to caring about all.
