Faith. Hope. Love. What the world needs more of. And spreading it, is the mission of this Project.

For a little while now, I’ve felt the Lord calling me to be more involved in ministry. And as a faithful church goer, I assumed that meant serving more there. And when I was asked to be one of the leads on the team I serve on, I figured that was the answer. But God had other plans (unbeknownst to me). Within a matter of weeks, my youngest son’s new AAU basketball season had started and he was traveling for the 1st time. That meant every weekend he was playing – and 95% of the time playing both days (also a first).

That meant that for the first time in 4 years, I’d possibly be missing church some weekends. My first thought was how can this be Lord? I was just asked to be a team lead – and I thought that’s what YOU wanted. At the same time, I was getting used to the craziness of the new basketball schedule (practices and games), working full-time and being a mom, I was also trying to revive my side hustle – a virtual assistant business. But I found that with the other 3 things taking up so much of my time, I had no time at all to work on the business. I was exhausted at the end of every day and after several weeks of the new busy schedule, one morning I woke up feeling completely overwhelmed and burnt out. And it was at that moment, I knew something had to change. So I put down the side business (for what I thought was going to be a short while) and I took a break. And it was during the break, that I felt God calling me into this ministry.

I had been posting daily positive messages on my personal FB page for several weeks prior and knew that I wanted to keep encouraging and inspiring people, but in a bigger way- so I prayed. I asked God for confirmation that this was what I was supposed to be doing. And He confirmed that it was. Then I asked for clarity, wisdom and direction on what it would all look like… and that’s how I got to this place.

I just want to do my part to bring more love and light to the world, and share my faith along the way. It makes my heart happy. I want it to be far reaching – to start a movement – because I know that it’s so much bigger than my corner of the world. But even if I just encourage a few people, I’ll keep on keeping on.

I love you all. And I thank you for your support.
