Having my specialty in the field of Learning Disabilities, I find many Christians who can voice how "fearfully and wonderfully" they are created, yet live their lives not knowing this truth in their souls. It is easy to retrieve from our Christian minds, but difficult to receive as our true identities especially when learning is a challenge. My heart is passionate to share the "Truth" that not only are we purposely created and knit together with our unique qualities, but also how God needs us to discover the high purpose and plan for our lives as stated in Jeremiah 29:11. My life's journey will be to shout these "Truths" to the Christian as well as well as the unbeliever as an avenue for the "Truth" to set the downtrodden free.
