Welcome to Inspired to Breathe
We have all experienced difficult situations and frustrations in our lives. Lord knows I have certainly had my share of emotional roller-coaster rides, relationship drama, and divorce episodes. My world and everything around me came crashing down, suddenly! I was an emotional mess and unable to breathe! I asked God a question… “God, why are you doing this to me?”
Just because we are Christians, does not mean we are exempt from hurt, pain, persecution and all the drama that life brings. The sincerest Christian can become disappointed, discouraged and fearful at times. During my divorce escapade, I didn’t lose materialistic things. Those items can be replaced. However, the confident woman that I thought I was, was stripped away and replaced with, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, confusion, anger, bitterness, resentment, disappointment and fear of failure. I was literally drowning in a sea of despair with no hope or power to survive.
It was the love of God, prayer, a godly family (a praying mother), good friends that honor God, some professional guidance and a loving church family that INSPIRED ME TO BREATHE and to be hopeful and continue living an amazing life. If it wasn’t for their love and support, I would have never been able to move forward.
I am an active member of a loving, bible-based church. I serve as the assistant music director and worship leader. I love working with analytics, data, and computers, so by day, I serve as a social research manager.
The goal of Inspired to Breathe (ITB) is to honor God by sharing His love through inspirational words, personal testimonies of faith, quotes, scriptures, devotions and other creative types of encouragement. Love is a healing balm for our wounds, broken hearts, and shattered dreams. Some days, we just need a little push, lots of love and inspiration. Just breathe!

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
