As I begin a new year and chapter in my life, I pray that God continues to bless and use me as a vessel to inspire and uplift others.

God’s grace and presence in my life has inspired me to reach out to individuals who are in need of a kind word and active ear. In my daily job as a psychotherapist and life skills consultant, I have been blessed with a wonderful opportunity to help others while growing emotionally and spiritually myself.

As I interact with clients, family members and friends on a daily basis, I have become more aware of individuals’ strong desire to be loved. As I listen to the struggles individuals face in their relationships and life in general, I challenge them to do some soul searching by examining what they feel in their Hearts.

The Heart is an organ that gives life to emotions and whatever a person feels toward others can be linked to the condition of his or her heart. With this in mind, I encourage individuals to strive to maintain a pure heart. According to Matthew 5: 8 Blessed are the pure in heart.

As I have grown in my spirituality, I have learned the importance of maintaining a pure heart. 1 Samuel 16:7 tells us that man looks at the outward appearance, but God looks at the heart.

God created us out of love so that we can love. I have personally embraced this basic spiritual concept and hope that you will as well. Do not miss an opportunity to purify your heart and let others know how you feel about them. I am grateful that God has allowed our paths to cross.
