I was in my early thirties when God spoke in my spirit and told me my purpose: To ‘Spread LOVE through Creativity!’ Do you think I was happy?
On Sunday I went to church for the first time in about 7 years. I've been invited in the past, but never felt led to go, but this time when my friend Margaret invited me to the launch of a new church, my inner guidance said 'go'.

After spending four months in Ghana, I made a commitment to my Self to spend every winter in the sun! Why be in the cold when you can be in the warmth?

I wouldn't normally update my blog in the middle of the week, but I've had an interesting few days and I wanted to tell you all about it! Over the weekend, I received a friend request on Facebook from a man in Germany called 'HeiligGeist DeutschChill'.
