“ I enjoy the combination of teaching, counseling and preaching in my rural community church, alongside my husband of 33 years. I am an ordained minister and I have recently retired from Public Education for over 24 years as a school counselor and bilingual teacher. I am living testimony that God is a Code Breaker!
When your DNA from your family history tells you that you will only continue down a path of alcohol, divorce and abuse." God breaks that cycle and declares “I am complete in Him, who is the Head of all principality and power” Col. 2:10 I can be who God has designed me to be.
