This song is based on information given to me, by my sister, Victoria. Here's what she had to say:

I would tell people it's not enough to lead people to Christ....you have to show them how to live for Christ, and the best way to do that is live your life in front of them. People need help living a Godly life....so we help them...We're invested in the lives of the people we lead...we're with them every day...pretty hard to hide your life when you're living it in front of them....

I woke up this morning at 4:13...my first thought was, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me" which is Philippians 4:13. I like it because God has put me in a position in this ministry where I have had to trust him completely for everything....so many things that only through Christ could I have done any of it.

 Something I would sing to the Lord is, "THANK YOU! For giving me this life, transforming me, using me to help others and blessing me with the desires of my heart.

I don't know if this is a phrase or a theme, but I believe the key to life is obedience. There are things that I know are right to do...and I pray every day that I do them. It is my desire to live a life that is pleasing to God. That really is my life goal.

Favorite chapters...all of these tell us how we should live.
Romans 8 & 12 ( Ro 12:1,2)
Psalm 91 (Psalm 91:1)
Galatians 5 & 6
Colossians 3
Ephesians 5 (Eph 5:16)
Philippians 4 (Phil.4:13)
