In His Own Words

God broke my heart in 2004, before rebuilding it in a powerful way. He removed someone from my life who I cared for very deeply, and I went through a deadening depression. God was teaching me compassion for others. I didn’t understand others pain, nor did I care to, because I had too much of my own. I didn’t understand. Now, I do.

 

When Aragorn received the sword of the King in The Lord of the Rings, he was told to "become who you were born to be." Each of us has a calling, and my heart lies with God's will. The love of theatre and drama was not placed in me randomly. God gave it to me, so that I, in turn, could give it to you.
