Like many, 2020 was a tumultuous year and after the loss of her father in 2019, followed by rejection and devastation from trusted personnel, she began to question God. She knew He had called her to do his work, but seemed to always be " too much" for every church space. In those confusing seasons, God showed her that the things she was looking for in others, He was developing within her.
After submitting to his will, she asked the Lord, How can she become the woman she's always needed? How can she be trusted? He said be a women of your word. Proverbs 18:21 states "The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." From there Mean Girls 18:21 (MG18:21) movement was birthed.
