For many years, Angela was living on her own path. Even though she attended Catholic Mass, she was only checking the boxes. Angela didn’t know it then, but she was inching closer to really knowing Jesus and having a relationship with Him. In the meantime, she struggled with anxiety, depression and even thoughts of suicide which led to her first rock bottom moment. She was tired of living in the torment from the past 12 years and wanted & needed to change.
So, this year, March 2021, Angela experienced her Check Your Game moment after hitting rock bottom a second time. She cried out to the Lord and said, “enough is enough.” She then made a decision to do things His way and has experienced many blessings since.

Angela has Nominated (N) or Introduced (I) and if they Shared (S) their story: COMING SOON
My advice is the three P's: Prayer, Patience, Persistence, and some more prayer. Open your heart to Jesus, and he will heal whatever you need. He will give, but you most always follow his will. Jesus is the gift that keeps on giving to me. Give him your life, troubles, and worries, and he will bless you endlessly.
The Lord has healed me, and while I know I'm still a sinner, he shows me mercy and gives me the grace to keep going. God bless you. Allow HIM to HEAL you, and you will be living a life of Peace, Happiness, and Hope. All you have to do is ask, seek, and knock.
