“I’m not insecure about being around people who have issues and struggles because I’ve been there and I’ve done it all.”

“I’m releasing my first ever weight loss book.  All that I had gone through, I felt like it was an opportunity to recreate myself.  Not a lot of people get an opportunity to walk in the place where they experience trouble and then have emotional strength and the spiritual support through their relationship with God or even a friendship that pulls them to a place of making a correction.”

“God put me on this path, and this is what I feel is strengthening me.  Not my prayers right now but the prayers that I’ve cried out to God when there was no problem.  And just asking God to strengthen me and to sustain me, caused me to be focused.  I think had I not done that out of obedience to him I probably would be in a real ugly state right now.”

“I don’t know about y’all, but I don’t want nobody that can’t catch me in the Spirit.  I don’t want nobody that can’t catch me in prayer; that can’t catch me in my Spirit; that can’t sense when something is wrong.  I need an eagle-like Spirit that’s got the power to intercede for me; to consecrate for me; to fast for me; to minister to me.”

“I only get bitter, frustrated and anxious when I believe a particular stressor I’m facing is never-ending.  If I just remember that they don’t last – nothing lasts forever – I can weather anything.”

“My purpose keeps me going.”

“It’s not just your turn, it’s your time.”
