About Me

I was grew up in the inner city and worked hard to overcome a life of poverty. I met the man of my dreams when I was 17 and got married when I was 19, one year after I started college.

How I live my faith

We check on how they are doing and see if they need anything. This almost always develops into strong, lasting friendships.
