I Am Free!

It is freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened by the the yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 
Sometimes it is difficult to live in the freedom that Christ offers us. I recently received a comment on my last blog, "He Really Loves You". The comment was asking does God still love us even when we are not acting Christ like?
Even though Christ has set us free, sometimes we keep ourselves in bondage, because we are burdened by our thoughts that are keeping us enslaved.  We have thoughts that are limited to our frame of reference, limited to our experiences and our past pain.  But God's thoughts are not like ours, His thoughts have absolutely no bounds.  He is not enslaved with thoughts like we are. And when Christ died on the cross, he gave us the capability, not to have His thoughts, but to have a mind like His, because set us free completely.
We are free to walk in His love and forgiveness, even if that includes forgiving ourselves when feel undeserving.  Satan would have us carry every single burden in life, to walk around in defeat and sadness, because of mistakes we have made. But God would have to walk around in complete joy and freedom.  And when any burden gets too difficult for us, He even asks us to throw our cares on Him, because He cares for us.
We have a tremendous opportunity to walk in freedom through Christ! When my husband took his life, there was a yoke of slavery that jumped on me for a season, this yoke made it difficult to forgive myself. I was constantly burden with thoughts like,  "What could I have done to have stopped him?" "Should I have listened more?" "Should I have reached out more?" But at the end of the day, I realized my circumstances were not changing. I was not getting out of this prison. Finally I decided, if I did not forgive myself, I would never get to a place of healing. And if I allowed myself to remain in bondage, how could I help my daughters to see the glory of God even in the most difficult of situations?
Giving Jesus my hurt, pain and unforgiveness, put me on the road to freedom! Certainly, the pain did not go away over night, but I learned ways to grow and walk closer to God through my situation; without carrying heavy burdens that block for me from seeing the love of God.  I'm free! And in that freedom I am able to love others more freely and I am able to forgive more than I ever before. Because when Christ sets you free, you are free indeed.
Father, please help us to accept the freedom you have for us, help us to desire to walk in Your freedom and open our hearts to Your love. Because Your love has absolutely no bounds, no limits. And cause us to constantly remember, that You are always there and You want us to cast our cares on you. Thank You for Your love.  Amen.

He Really Loves You

And you may have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high,d e and how deep his love is. (Ephesians 3:18)
It is so amazing to feel loved! To know someone loves you completely! There have been times in my life when I have felt totally alone.  I thought to myself: "no one knows my pain, no one can relate with my suffering."
But when I read the words found in this passage, I am reminded exactly how much God loves me. There is absolutely no ending to His love for me.
Friends may give up on me and family members could easily get tired of me.  But God will always be there with His arms stretched out to receive me.
His love is deep, His love is unfailing and I am grateful.
"Father, teach me and give me the power to understand how wide,              
how long, how high and how deep your love is for me every day".

Touch A Heart!!!

Every Monday at 5:00 p.m. (PST) we are on the air with "Touch A Heart Radio Show". It is our desire to discuss subjects that are difficult and at times tender to the heart.  Many struggle with life-long issues, pain, dissappointments and hardships, unfortunately there are many who suffer in silence.  There could several reasons for suffering in silence:
  • No one to talk to
  • Embarrassed
  • Angry
  • Don't have the words
  • Don't want to talk
Through the "Touch A Heart Radio Show", we are reaching out and tackling those difficult subjects, such as: Abuse, Homosexuality, Suicide, Humantrafficking and the list could go on and on.

Our Commission to go teach and disciple others can be fulfilled in various ways, we believe through the area of media, it provides us with an avenue to reach out to those suffering and feeling they have no voice.

We have been touched to receive many callers and individuals writing sharing their heart; as well as their appreciation that we have this opportunity available. 

I know in my darkest hour, there were times, when I just didn't have the words, to express exactly how I was feeling.  The hurt was so deep, all I wanted to do is cry; crying was my release. But after the initial shock I was blessed to have dear friends and family that would allow me to talk and share everything that I was going through. There were no time limits to the our discussions.  I could talk to my heart was content; I was never turned away.

It is our prayer at Touch A Heart Radio to be a sounding board and help to those who find themselves in painful situations, but more importantly, we want to share that there is hope and victory in Jesus!  He is able deliver you out of any situation.

We have been blessed to have some awesome guests that have come on the show being very open and transparent.  It is comforting to know that someone has been where you are and not just that, but they survived.  Our guests have brought amazing testimonies of hope and deliverance.

When we began with the vision to "Touch A Heart and Change A Life", we knew we wanted to help those in need, but God knew a way to make it happen.  We are grateful to offer Touch A Heart Radio on every Monday Evening and we have vision to offer shows more frequently. 

I invite you to take a moment to listen to our recent show featuring Carla Cannon (Magazine Publisher, Best Selling Author, Christian Coach and Minister).  Her story will give you hope to overcome whatever you are going through.

Stand in the Gap!

Ezekiel 22:30 says: "I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one." God is always looking for someone to stand in the gap.  Someone like Abraham, who sought God to save his loved ones in Sodom and Gomorrah; like Moses who stood for Israel time and time again and like Aaron who stood between the living and the dead to stop the plague. In these various situations the people were sinning and God wanted to destroy them, but these might men of God stood on behalf of those in sin.

Today we live in a society that is overcome with sin; every where we look so many have taken their eyes off God and gone their own way.  Now is the time when the children of God must stand in the gap.  Our prayer life must increase and we must go deeper into the presence of God.  We must draw nearer to God, seeking wisdom and guidance in order to reach those that are lost.

We cannot sit back and watch the destruction around us, we must rise up like the Prophets in the Bible! Sin is not new, throughout the Bible, we see how God's heart was broken when His people turned away from Him and began to follow other gods.  Its time for us to begin to bridge that gap and call on the name of the only true and living God.

We must bridge this gap through prayer and reaching out in love; we cannot turn our backs and act like we do not see the destruction that is happening in our land.

In 2 Chronicles 7:13, 14 God says: “When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people,  if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land

We are plagued with major issues in our society, abuse, human trafficking and criminal activity all around us.  The plagues we face can only be stopped by the help of God.  He is waiting for us to rise up and stand in the gap.  Let us commit to an intense prayer life and be faithful to seek His word for direction.

It is my prayer that the next time God looks for someone to stand in the gap for this land, He will find so many men and women on their knees praying for our land and truly seeking to be righteous before Him. God is calling His people to pray and to stand in the gap for this land. It's time to stand in the gap!

Miracles, Signs and Wonders!!!

Matthew 13:58 says: And he did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. Jesus stopped doing miracles and wonders because the people did not believe.  Has Jesus stopped doing miracles and wonders through us, simply because we don't choose to believe that He can?

We pray, but are we praying with power and convictions? We have power in us to do great things; we have dunamis power (sign, miracles and wonders).  John 14:12 says: "Very truly I tell you, who ever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. "

I believe God is leading us into a time of REVIVAL like we have never known and He wants to do miracles through His people. It's time to completely surrender to Him. We must believe!

Let's put our trust and confidence in God and His power; so that He will continue to do great wonders in the lives of His people.

Let us surrender ourselves and allow God to stretch us like never before.  We must allow God to take us beyond our comfort zone.Let's surrender ourselves to the work of the Lord in our lives and choose to be amazed by the power of God displayed.

Acts 1:8 says:  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Walk in His Power, seeking signs, miracles and wonders.

The Power of Praise

There are times when we feel so defeated, so beat up by life, attacks and even disappointments.  That we believe we just don't have the spiritual strength to give God sincere praise.  And beloved, that is just what Satan is counting on; his plan is to wear us down to the point where we have no desire to praise God because of our frustrations.

You see Satan realizes that there is great power in our praise and if he can keep us down and frustrated, to the point where we are unable to give praise to our God; he has won a major feat. Your praise is something that you simply cannot give up no matter what! Not only does it help you to combat the enemy, it also empowers you and gives you great strength. Singing a song from your heart will give a tremendous boost to your spirit.

Have you ever been there? Problems so overwhelming, you begin to feel low and burdened. Then all of a sudden a song comes from no where, you begin to sing unto God and before you know, you have been uplifted and encouraged within. That is the power of a song and the power of your praise.

In 2 Chronicles 20 a great army rose against King Jehosphat and his people. Jehosophat was afraid but he went to the Lord and prayed.  He declared a fast throughout the land.  All the people came out and stood before the Lord, praying for His deliverance.  As they were praying, the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel and he began to speak: "Listen, this is what the Lord says, do not be afraid, don't be discouraged.  For the battle is not yours, but the Lord's; you will have no need to fight, set yourselves and watch, God will deliver you." The Lord told them exactly where the enemy was camping, God told them where to go and what to do.

Then King Jehosophat appointed sings to lead the army, he told them to praise the beauty of the Lord and say: Praise the Lord, for His mercy endureth for ever. As they marched out and they began their shouts and praises, the Lord set ambush against the enemy and they began to fight themselves. The enemy helped Judah destroy them. They had the victory!

But, it all began with a shout, it began with their praise.  Remember how God used a shout, not the weapons of man to destory the walls of Jericho.  In the midst of your trials and tribulations, no matter how difficult they are, find the strength to lift up a praise to our mighty God.  Because there is power in your praise; give God your best Hallelujah! You and I are destined for greatness!  We must always hold on to our hope, our heart and our hallellujah!

Then God will reveal that He was in control all along!  Remember, the power of our praise!

Everyone Must Help!!!

No matter who you are, your background, your economic status, your religious beliefs, everyone must help with the fight against Human Trafficking.  This Saturday in Riverside, CA, our Organization the Women's Worshipfest will host a Donation Drive in order to raise funds in our fight against Human Trafficking.  We are partnering with Goodwill and Jamba Juice and they will give funds toward our fight against Human Trafficking. If you are in the Riverside area this Saturday, please meet us at the New Hope Baptist Church, 19320 Spalding Avenue. Please bring a bag of unwanted items for the drive; what you don't want, we certainly do. 

The purpose of this donation drive is to help us raise awareness, educate and support those who are out there in the trenches everyday, reaching out to those who are trapped. We are blessed to work with a Missionary from Paris, France "Sarah-jane" she left everything in France to come out and help with this great cause.  So many people are joining in to help where they can, what about YOU?

Monday, April 15, 2013

This week we will launch a new movement: "LET IT BE ME"!!! It has been a tremendous move on my heart to do all I can to stand up and fight against this major injustice in Human Trafficking.  When the Women's Worshipfest took on the mantle to raise the awareness of Human Trafficking in the United States, we found many people were not aware of Human Trafficking had trapped man young boys, girls, women and men, right here in the United States. Many people that we have encountered have shook their heads and uttered the words: "That's A Shame!"

But now we have several questions before us, who will shine a light on the Human Trafficking right in our back yard? Who will take a stand against this injustice that so many people face? Who will do all they can to help those suffering. I am ready to answer: "LET IT BE ME"!!! And I am asking everyone to join me and to do what they can.  You may not be able to do much, but we can all do something!

Join us, stand with us and get ready to help those need! In the history of our Nation there have been so many rights violated, so many injustices, yet there were always great leaders to rise, stand and become the voice for those who were able to do so on there own.  What we face today is a greater battle than any other slavery we have had in our history; there are 27 million people trapped in this Modern Day Slavery. Let's not stop the fight to they are free, won't you join us and say: Let It Be Me!!!!

Touch A Heart Radio Talk Show

This has been an absolutely amazing season for me, not all bad, but definitely not all good.  One thing I have definitely learned is that God is stretching me in areas I never thought possible.  Isaiah 54:2-4 says: “Clear lots of ground for your tents! Make your tents large. Spread out! Think big! Use plenty of rope, drive the tent pegs deep.You’re going to need lots of elbow room for your growing family.You’re going to take over whole nations; you’re going to resettle abandoned cities. Don’t be afraid—you’re not going to be embarrassed. Don’t hold back—you’re not going to come up short.You’ll forget all about the humiliations of your youth,and the indignities of being a widow will fade from memory. 

In this past season I definitely experienced some indignities as a widow; without a doubt there were times when I felt a loss of dignity and self-respect.  But I certainly learned that it is in those times when God becomes very BIG in your life.  He has become so very huge in my life and every day He is opening my eyes to new wonders and giving me a greater desire to help those in need.  In February we launched our Touch A Heart...Change A Life Campaign that is still active and God continues to add to that vision. We are currently preparing to host our first Radio Talk Show, "Touch A Heart", where we will focus on hurting people, hurting situations and powerful solutions.  I want to be a part of the solution for those who are in pain.  I am delighted the God is providing a platform to share many of the issues people face day in and out and what we can do as a body of believers to help.  

This is my life's goal to Touch A Heart...Change A life!!!  Won't you join me? Keep watch...I have so many things to share on this wonderful journey.

Focused on the Goal!!!

As I begin to reflect on my life in the reason years, I have been virtually in the press since 2007, I have had struggle after struggle, since 2007. My boss said something today that I have heard so many times: "you remind me a little bit of Job". I even remember saying those words in 2010, "wow, I feel like Job, but praise God I haven't seen death" and in 2011 my husband took his life.

God has been stretching and preparing me from something GREAT!!! Something so BIG that I could never do it on my own. Something so BIG that He had to keep my focus on Him. So with that in mind, I am focused on the goal.  In Philippians 3:12-14 in the Message it says: I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.

It has been a  rough road, and most of what I have experienced lately is NOTHING that I would have ever asked for, but all I have to say to Satan is "BRING IT ON", if you are spending so much of your time on distracting and frustrating me. You are giving me a reason for HIGH PRAISE and helping me to stay focused to see what God really has for me that has kept you on attack for me!!!

I say on this day "Thankful Thursday" March 14th, that I will look back and see why Satan had an "ALL OUT ATTACK" on me and my family. I know without a doubt my goal is not church work, but Kingdom work!!! He who wins souls is wise and I'm on the Lord's team, with the goal of bringing manysouls into the fold!! Satan must see something so MIGHTY in the name of Jesus, that he is working very hard to stop me. Even today, I have been in the bed all day with some type of infection, my body completely in pain. I was feeling pretty bad, then I remembered it is my declared: Thankful Thursday, so I have to stop and say thank you Lord, I'm ALIVE!!! No matter what comes my way, I've got my eye on the goal, I'm aiming high and focusing on the goal!!!

Because Life is Precious

This Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada I will have a wonderful opportunity to be a part of something Life Changing: March for Life!!! I will be at Baker Park, lending my support to a wonderful cause.  There are times when we really do not realize the cost for the decisions we make.  I have been blessed to be a part of a fantastic organization who commits to saving lives every single day.  Did you know that in the last 40 years over 54 million babies have been legally killed.  Isn't it time that we begin looking at solutions and multiple choices to help those who are in the midst of a pregnancy crisis? That is what First Choice Pregnancy Services does for the community.

They lovingly offer support to every person walking in, no matter what their background or belief, they offer their services free.  Its not too late you can join me this weekend and if you are not in the Las Vegas area, please feel free to go to the event website and make a contribution.   Please visit:

I am so very thrilled to join in on this effort and to be a part of the solution.  Won't you join me? Because life is precious.

Dare to Dream

When we are little ones it seems like nothing can stop us from dreaming, we are constantly dreaming, we even day dream; we dream of being a princess waiting in a castle for our prince to come; we dream of being a star; we dream having very own horse. We have many dreams.  But something happens down the line, some of us stop dreaming; some even begin to believe that dreams don't come true.

Well we need to keep dreaming, God wants us to dream; he has poured dreams in us. We are all pregnant with dreams waiting to come forth.

In the Old Testament, there is a story of a little boy name Joseph and he had dreams all the times, he had dreams that everyone would bow to him; his brothers and sisters would bow and his father and mother would bow. No one liked Joseph's dreams, his brothers were so angry with his dreams that they sold Joseph away from the family, believing they would never see him again. 

But there was a problem, you see when God gives you a dream, there is nothing anyone can do to stop those dreams from coming to past. Joseph was sold away into slavery, he was even put in prison, but even though he went through a lot of heart ache and pain, his brothers, father and everyone in that land bowed to Joseph because God raised him up as a Ruler. God brought Joseph's dream to life.

So I encourage you today, dare to dream and believe what God places upon your heart.  It may not happen right away but God is working on it. Take those dreams you have in your heart and start planning. Proverbs 16:9 says:  A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.  

Allow your dreams to align with your purpose; your purpose to align with your action and your actions to align with the manifestation of your dreams. Dare to dream and you will be amazed with what God will do  if you only believe. Dare to Dream.

God is Seeking Warm Hearts!!!

Every time I look at the news and some times even Facebook, I'm amazed how cold people can be.  Its as if they have no heart, almost nothing seems to move them.  They can see the despair and hurt that is out there in the world and turn their heads as if it doesn't matter.

It reminded me of the scripture in Matthew 24:12: And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. We live in society today that is filled with evil, destruction and wickedness.  Little children are sold by family members into sex trafficking, that's cold; when the boy at school, that you believe is your one and only, reveals that he only wants to pimp you out, that's cold.  Its sad, but expected from those who don't know the love of Christ.

But when the righteous begin to show that nothing warms their hearts, it is heart breaking to God.  When we see a need and turn the other way because we have determined that person doesn't look like they "really" need help, that's cold; when we see the starving children in foreign countries and say, "well that's in other countries, we need to help people in america", that's cold; when we see suffering women and children trapped in sex slavery and say, "I don't believe that really happens, that's cold!!

Fact be told, we have some cold-hearted saints. And God is looking for warm hearted saints that care.  During Jesus' ministry on earth, He was constanly moved with compassion and when He was moved, He did something. He fed the hungry, He gave sight to the blind, healed the sick, raised the dead.  He had an amazing "Compassion Ministry".  John 14:12 says: Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.

God is looking for warm hearts that are reaching out to do more and more each day. Warm hearts serving others that are willing to be the hands and feet of Jesus. I would give up absolutely everything I have to fulfill the commission God has on my life, in many ways I already have. I have come to realize that it is not about going to church, sitting in my seat and serving in those four walls; although it is an absolute must to gather my self in fellowship with the saints.  But it is truly about helping, reaching, caring just like Jesus did!  It's seeing a need and meeting that need!!!

We all have the Great Commission placed on our life, either we are to go or to give resources for someone else to go.  Well my friend, if you don't feel the call to go, I invite you to partner with me, because I will go.  It burns within me to go out and help, so I will continue to ask this question again and again.  Won't you help me, touch a heart and change a life?  Please watch my video:

What Do You See????


We all want to be successful and to accomplish what God has planned for our lives.  But, some times we wander about like we are in the dark, stretching out our hands hoping to catch hold of somethimg that will make us secure.  The problem with that is, if the lights never come on you will not be able to see and what good will it be to just be holding on to something.

We have to be able to see what is in front of us in order to go any where.  I don't know about you, but I want to go far and I want to accomplish EVERYTHING that God has for me.  And in order to do that I have to have VISION.  Vision is the act or power of seeing; SIGHT; the act or power of imagination; Revelation.

Proverbs 29:18 says: 
Without revelation, people run wild, but one who keeps the law will be happy. (HCSB)
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. (KJV)

If you want to get any where you MUST have vision.  Major League baseball player, Mark McGwire, for his career averaged a home run once every 10.61 bats, the best at bats per home run ratio in baseball history. When asked how did he make so many home runs, Mark McGwire said: "before I go up to bat, I see myself at the plate hitting a home run."

Mark McGwire had vision; he had the power if seeing; he had the power of imagination.  What can you see yourself doing?  What can you imagine yourself doing?  God can do that and even more.  Ephesians 3:20 says:
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.

So my friends grab hold of your vision and imagine seeing yourself doing it!!!  What exactly do you see?  Do you see yourself owning a business?  Do you see yourself teaching and shaping lives?  What do you see? Whatever you see yourself doing, could be your vision.  Open your eyes and use that power of seeing to envision what God has for you.  Every day God will show you great and exciting things, don't miss out, continue to ask yourself, what do you see?

And We're Off!!!

"WINGS" Community Summer Learning Program

We have begun planning efforts for helping those in Las Vegas, who are trapped in Human Trafficking; a steering committee has already been formed.  We will offer am awesome  Community Summer Learning Program for children called "Wings".  This program is just as the name says a Community Program, we will go into the neighborhood of Children in need, we will offer backyard programs and community center programs "FREE".  Participants will be evaluated and assessed by a teacher and begin a reading, math, science and library program.  Children will gain confidence in learning; as well as learning strategies to improve in these areas; ultimately soaring in their learning. Hence, the name  "Wings".  It is not too late to participate in our Touch A Heart...Change A Life Campaign, your contributions help us to continue offering these programs to the Community.  We are serving in various ways in California, Nevada, Texas, Arizona, Louisiana, Alabama and Tennessee. Our Wings Program is a Pilot Program in California.  Help us to empower children in education and equip them to try out their wings.

Touch A Heart and Change A Life Compaign!!!

It has been two years since I lost my husband, Kevin Brown to suicide.  I still have to pinch myself to believe this has actually happened.  It amazing me that a person so full of life and having so much compassion for other could make such a decision.  The only thing that keeps me going is the thought: That something AWESOME AND WONDERFUL, has to come out of this.  It was during one of my moments of thinking, Lord, what is the purpose of all of this, that I know with out a doubt, the vision: Touch A Heart and Change A Life came from.  My pain is for someone else's gain.  God has chosen my family to use our hurt and devastation, to help others in their time of despair.  I have been leading the Women's Worshipfest for over 15 years, first the vision was just to have an Annual Conference and bring women together to have them restored and revived.  But after my life was turned upside down, God let me know that Women's Worshipfest was to be more than just a Conference.  We were to help women and children losing hope. So on today we have launched our "Touch A Heart and Change A Life Campaign".  We have posted on the Crowd funding site to spread the word of our vision.

My husband was too wonderful of an individual, we have to get more than just hurt, frustration and pain out of his death, God showed me I have to remember his life and how he lived more than how he died.  When he lived our house had an open door, I can't begin to count how many people we took in when they had no where to go.  We never ever had a Thanksgiving Dinner alone as a family, our house was open to any and everyone who wanted to come.  He had a heart of gold.  That is why it truly grieves me that somehow he lost hope.  I can never do anything to change what has happened in my life, but I can help others; I can make a difference in the lives of others and I can ask others to help me.  So won't you help us, join hands with us...Please copy and paste this link:

Share it with your friends and family. We have only 40 days, but we can do it, if everyone does something to help!!!!!  Don't miss your moment, to TOUCH A HEART AND CHANGE A LIFE!
