Her ministry goal is to allow the Holy Spirit to teach the great truths of Christ that will allow others the working ideology of discipleship.

Her passion is to help others proclaim eternity and to imitate Christ that others might know Him. "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.." 1 John 4:7
