My Story

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.

Check out her video below with minute markers that will help guide you to any specific parts of her story, including her Check Your Game moment from 16:18-17:46.

My Advice

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.
Matthew 7:7-8

We fill up that lonely hole in our soul with so many things, (I tried a few)

What an inspiring story, and a valuable mission, helping nonprofits find the funding that they need.
(as someone who ran a nonprofit I know the vital service you are providing)

I loved what you said that “I tried it Angela’s way, let’s try it God’s way”
Isn’t He good that he honors such a desperate cry?

Praise God you found the one who satisfies

Bless you sister!
