Growing up, it never crossed my mind to be an inspiration to anyone. Coming from a broken home, I had too many internal issues that I was dealing with. Things like insecurity and trying to find love in boys to fill a void controlled me and in no way was I focused on victory in such bondage.

Serve God and be an example to those around you. Allow your service to be a sweet smelling aroma to God. We must remember that there is always someone looking up to us, wanting to mimic the things we do. My niece is going on 5 and I realized that those little things I did, she did. When I would start to sing a song, s
