At the age of 29, I had three professional degrees and came from a family in which my parents had been married for 31 years, when I suddenly found myself in the darkest and loneliest place I had ever been. I was pregnant and divorced. I had no hope, no direction, and no guidance. I was completely lost in a tunnel and no matter where I looked; I couldn’t see any glimpse of light. One night I cried myself to sleep saying, “God please take me out of this darkness and show me the light at the end of this tunnel. Please God do it.” The very next day God showed me the way out of the darkness and into the light, and my life was forever transformed. It was the beginning of a journey where I would do what no one in my entire blood lineage had ever done. I would defy and break all of my family’s beliefs and traditions and fight against all odds. I only had one person by my side and I was willing to walk on the water for Him.
