Faith Leads the Way is my journal and book on the belief and existence of God’s love and faithfulness. After being diagnosed with the terminal illness of Lupus SLE and Thyroid Cancer, I quickly realized that my only hope for peace and healing was to lean upon my Christian foundation. While struggling to recover from Lupus flares, I began to journal significant past and present experiences that impacted my faith and focused on seeking God’s unfailing love and healing. One of the greatest gifts in this life is the gift of knowledge. It’s how you choose to benefit from each experience that counts. I have chosen to share a part of my life’s journey to help empower individuals to push forward daily through biblical principles and promises that kept my family motivated and encouraged. Life will always throw challenges, and being a Christian doesn’t mean life will be picture-perfect or that you did something wrong to deserve any hardship. Being a Christian allows Faith to Lead the Way.
