This is and forever will be one of my favorite pictures of myself because this photo was taken when I began to make a change within myself. Prior to this photo I was in my first year of college. I was taking on a lot of battles: I was having a lot of emotional pain from high school friends that tore me down, that situation broke me and I remember since that happened praying for God to bring me friends that would have my back and treat me with respect. That pain hadn't ever left me and I was then pushed into an immediate hardship in my family after I graduated from high school and I took on the role of helping my family and I had tried taking on everyone's pain and making it better. In this midst of this, I was hit with hurt and pain from others in my life that knocked me down. I hit a place where I was having blackouts and panic attacks, I did not know how to get back to a happy place and to make things worst Brandon and I could not seek help in each other because he was going through his own hardships. I had made the decision to move to Pullman, Washington and went to WSU. I knew NOBODY, I left EVERYBODY and I was already going through too much for me to handle. I still do not know how I made this decision in the midst of so much internal chaos but I did and now I see that it was God. ⭐I spent that year growing in Christ and God gave me the best friend I could ever be blessed with.@emileeha you have become family to both Brandon and I and we will always be there for you as you were for both of us. You were the answers to my prayers and I love you so so much! God also blessed me with @amandafay who carved time in her day to meet with me every week for coffee. It is because of her that my relationship with Christ grew so fiercely. She showed me how to give God to drivers seat and how to have full faith in Him.
⭐This photo was taken weeks before I moved back home, I then began Christian counseling for myself and for Brandon and I. Through this God has taken my life and made it almost a dream come true. If you are going through something that feels impossible, I'm telling you God is there and His plan will be your biggest dream come true. Just trust Him.🙏🏻❤
