I am a single mom of 4 children (three of which are triplets) on a journey to self-sufficiency. I firmly believe in the principle of starting with what you have before God can bless you with more. The parable of the talents illustrates this nicely, “The one to whom five talents have been committed is to render the improvement of five; he who has but one, the improvement of one. God expects returns “according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.” 2 Corinthians 8:12”. This is why I chose to start my journey in an old run-down house in the inner-city. It isn’t much, but I believe through faith and hard work I can create my very own urban homestead. My dream doesn’t stop here, this is just the beginning, the beginning of a journey, a journey of faith.
“Faith is a day-to-day lifestyle and experience of Jesus Christ. That’s what we are experiencing at Shalom, when we plant in faith – even in the dust – and trust in him for the miracles of his love.”
