She journeyed through many religions and spiritualties before returning to her Catholic Christian roots. To name a few: Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Signs of Spirituality, Southern Baptist Christianity, All Souls Christianity, Assemblies of God Christianity, Episcopal Christianity, and Non-Denominational Christianity.
The Lord has healed her of addiction, depression, and ties to the demonic. She now lives a life of love, joy, and “the peace of God, which passes all understanding.” (Philippians 4:7) She longs to share this life with the world.
She also specializes in multi-cultural ministry from her experience at one of the most diverse, Catholic parishes in the greater D.C. area with first, second, and third generation parishioners from over sixty nationalities with thirteen spoken languages. A list is included at the bottom of this page.
