Faith for Jackie

I have no idea how to start this story because it is so unbelievable that I don't have the words, so here is my best shot. My dad recently invited me to a Jesus Culture conference in L.A. where I first came across the Giving keys booth.There were so many booths at the conference but this in particular booth at the conference stood out to me. The booth was crowded and I couldn't wait my turn to see what this was all about ( I was a jewelry major in college and jewelry is particularly symbolic to me). So when...

Believe He is Always There

I was gifted the "BELIEVE" key bracelet from my amazing aunt. I have worn it quite a bit since June and each time I wore it I prayed that God would reveal to me someone who needed to receive the key. Tonight I found that lady at our evening church service. I got to pray for this beautiful lady named Kenny who has been through a lot of trauma and struggling to believe that God is good. I got to encourage and pray for her and then I gave her my bracelet to remind her that God is always there...

Her words were strong and courageous. I had my baby April 21st and she had her baby May 25th. 3 weeks ago,...

There was such a beautiful healing word the Lord had for her and in the middle of me relying to her the Lord spoke her word is "STRENGTH." At that very moment I knew that my time had come to give my giving key away. I took it off at that moment and told her this...

Our Love is Stronger

This may sound a little arrogant, but I’ve always believed that God loves me a little bit extra. I’ve always been lucky — I’ve always landed in great situations, I always seem to land on my feet - and, most important, I’ve always stumbled into the most amazing people.  On the Saturday night of the 4th of July weekend, 1994, it was my luckiest moment of all. My friends dragged me off the beach to attend a party and begrudgingly, I attended. Little did I know that the cocky guy with the most beautiful smile I’d ever seen, who I let...
