Let’s be honest: navigating through life on your spiritual path isn’t easy. You’ve already committed to a church home, study your bible daily, and try to walk the Christian walk, but you can’t help but to feel like you’re walking it alone. Your friends and family may not understand your new life and although you may have Christian friends and leaders in your community you can talk to, secretly you feel like they would judge you for your past or what you’re still struggling with. 

You know your life is more than the pain you’re currently experiencing. You know God is the only answer, but you have no clear path to the life He’s called you to. You need more wisdom on how to break free of what's holding you back...and if we’re really being honest, you know deep down you can no longer do this by yourself.

God has already laid out a 10-step plan to break you free of everything that was holding you back from having the best relationship with Him and from having the life He promised you but until now. Many have only seen the lessons of Exodus through the lens of sin and suffering. This program differs from other traditional Mentorship programs because it uses God’s guide to transform you by using his teachings of bondage and methods of discipleship in a 21st century accessible format. 

This is not a traditional mentorship or coaching program where you’ll work on the goals you’ve currently identified for yourself and receive advice for advancement in that area. We are your guides and accountability partners on your self-development journey that won’t ask “what do you want to do” but give you the empowerment to access who you truly are. This is not about just strengthening your financial IQ and getting your SMART goals down to a science, but about developing the inward qualities of perseverance, self-awareness, self-love, and identity on your ultimate quest to wholeness. 

I was where you are before. A girl from Red Hook Houses in Brooklyn, New York, I was proud of myself in my early 30s when I got into New York Law School and pursued my dream of being an entertainment lawyer. I worked at HBO on popular shows, I had a loving spouse, my young daughter was excelling in school, and I made enough to start saving for a beautiful new home. Still sensing I needed more, I started going to the local church and found a new home there singing in the choir and joining the evangelism team. I thought that this is the life. 

But as I got closer to God, He began pressing on my heart that this wasn’t it. As I began finding mentors in Christ, with their help, I was exposed to traveling and preaching the Gospel around the world. Returning back to my job at home, I was increasingly met with the reality that this isn’t where God called me to be: my spouse began succumbing to his own internal issues, my boss at my dream job began nitpicking and noted she couldn’t rest until I was gone, and my intelligent daughter was offered a scholarship to a boarding school 200 miles away from home. Almost instantly, the life I had built for myself seemed like it was gone in a flash. 

Through holding on to the Word of God, sitting under leaders and mentors that I still have to this day, I began finding and living the life God had called me to in the beginning. Suddenly, I noticed how long I had been in bondage to my 9-5 job and salary, and to broken relationships. I had settled for a lower part of me.

Chances are, you’ve already started the process to get out of bondage. You listen to inspirational messages, read the Bible and other books to learn more strategies, and you confide in close friends and or an elder on life issues. Nothing comes to us along our spiritual journey until we are ready. When the student is ready, the teacher will show up. I’ve already done the studying and mapped out the strategy to get out of bondage and to obtain wholeness. Let me meet you where you are on your journey to freedom and guide you to the life God has promised you. All you need to do is show up, stand in your truth, and be open to receiving your new life. The story of the Israelites getting out of Egypt ends with Moses saying “the enemy you see today you will see no more.” I promise you, after this mentorship program, the person you will become is the free, whole you, that will manifest the will of God for your life. From your newfound internal place of freedom, that will guide you to peace and success, your life will be exceedingly and abundantly above all that you have hoped or dreamt.
