“Our churches are filled with single women who feel a sense of loss and loneliness. Our communities are filled with young girls who are struggling to understand their relationships and sexuality. And the Bible can appear to be a compilation of scriptures that scarcely address the issues of sex, relationships and single women.

“God has purposed me to reach the hearts of single women around the world and encourage them into their purpose. He has gifted me with His wisdom to interpret scripture for the modern women and lead them to live Christ-centered lives.

“Please, join me in this spiritual journey to help, heal and provide hope to single women across the globe.”
