I am a 26 year-old educator on the run of becoming all that I can in the time that I have. A few years ago, I embarked on a journey filled with spiritual discoveries, healthy habits, and a passion for education stronger than I've ever had. Learning what to do to become a better person have always interest me. One of my passions is to know a little about everything in order to gain the capability of forming my own opinion so others won't have to do it for me. Another passion that was buried deep inside finally came to the surface and allowed me to see the adventurous side of me. I am on a journey to see the world and do things outside of my comfort zone. I will write all about it along the way!

Glenneisha Darkins

My name is Glenneisha Darkins, I was involved in a tragic rollover accident. The accident left me as as a vent dependent quadriplegic. I am unable to move anything below my breasts. Going back to how I got this way, I got ejected from the vehicle coming from college in Tallahassee, FL on Thanksgiving break– I was attending Florida A&M University. I caught a ride with a student I barely knew just to get home to see my family. It didn't dawn on me that this would turn out to be a tragic outcome. I only remember waking up in the hospital asking for my belongings. The other people in the vehicle walked away except for me and the driver. The doctors announced my injuries to myself and mom; I am a C3-C4 and T-11 paraplegic. My left diaphragm was severely damaged leaving me on a breathing machine until further notice. It was unfortunate for me to end up having limitations. Before my accident, I was a very active child in school and outside. I played sports preferably basketball. However, this hasn't stopped me. I am now enrolled in college at Florida International University as a Psychology major. I attend online class and on-campus. This is evident that my situation doesn't stop me from living my life! I constantly remind my friends and family that I am thankful to be able to accomplish my goals despite my current condition. I inspire my mother, my brother, and friends. I am extremely honored to have survived such a accident. I've gain more courage than I've had before. My season has yet to begin and I thank The Lord and Savior!


My name is Desiree and I am 25 years old. I am born and raised in New York City. I was raised to know God and brought to church, but never truly had my own relationship with God. I turned my back on God when I was 18 and tried to fill deep wounds and voids with lots of men, alcohol, and more that led me down a painful, destructive road. Summer of 2013, I finally accepted God's plea to return to church. Later that year around October, I made a decision to follow God after a painful end of a dating experience. That is just a glimpse of my life story that reflects in my writing. My prayer is that others will find something they can relate to and be encouraged to become higher than they could ever imagine through God's strength and realize if he can do it for me, he can do it for you. My goal is to also help people see how God can do wonders in healing, forgiveness, regret, depression, and more. As I continue in my journey of healing, I hope to extend healing tools from God to others as well. "I've been through the storms and pain and realized with God I had so much more to gain. My calling is to show God can transform anything."

Nicole Sarr

My name is Nicole Sarr. I am a senior in college studying psychology and human development. I am 21 years old and I am a firm believer in fate, love, passion and romance. I think everyone is whole, strong, worthy and beautiful on their own but everyone deserves to find their better half because we were all made to love. I've been through my fair share of setbacks and heartbreaks but I've learned some gems along the way. I want to be an inspiration to every woman who goes through the same everyday struggle. Finding love isn't easy but working on yourself to be the best YOU, you can be is also difficult. But I discovered what makes me unique and I love ME and put ME first and foremost because I know my worth. So should you.

Christin Gattis

My name is Christin and I am a 28 year old single mother of two little boys. It has only been in the last couple of years that I have begun to realize that my life is not my own. God has been the author of my life and I am merely the illustrator, with my art being a constant work in progress. I am always seeking to learn and understand new ideas, concepts, and points of view. I have an undergrad degree in Criminal Justice and finished my MA in Human Services Counseling in May of 2015. I am an exceptionally emotional little critter and most of my life believed that that alone was my downfall. It is through God I have come to understand that instead of being my downfall, that was His gift to me. I possess an incredibly attuned ability to feel everything, which in turn allows me to understand all points of view and see the world through the eyes of compassion, grace, and understanding. It also greatly increases my intuitive abilities, which have proven to be a wonderful gift indeed. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and ideas with you all!
