Welcome To My Blog!
Rooted & Rising.
Rooted and Rising was born when God gave me a vision that I was going to change the world. I had no idea how I was going to but he did. We have teamed up on a mission to bring hope to a dying world in many ways. One of those is gently used clothes and Poshmark packages.
“I have spent my entire life trying to fit in where I obviously didn’t belong. It wasn’t until this past year that I realized I wasn’t born to fit in. I was born to stand out.”Thera G
Come follow my journey of how I rose from a homeless addict with no self worth to finding redemption in Jesus & rising to the call God placed on my life. It wasn’t until I found the true meaning of redemption & freedom in my relationship with God that I was able to start living. I am living my best life yet and it’s all because I stay rooted in Jesus’ sacrificial love for me. I’ve struggled so much in the past 5 years and I still struggle every day. But now is different, because I know my worth and my identity. It took me a while to figure it out but once I did, my life changed in so many ways and its been amazing to say the least.
I want to share my story with you and the world to show everyone how beautiful God’s grace is. I want you to see the statistics that are talked about based on a persons circumstances are not what define you. What defines you is what God says about you. Nothing anyone speaks over you will ever change the fact that you are loved, you are redeemed, you are strong, you are a child of God. I never thought in a million years I would be where I am today, but that is because I never thought I would be anything because of the things people said about me due to the way I grew up and the life I lived. What they didn’t know is that I serve a great & almighty God that was already doing the work in me, to prepare me for greatness.
5 years ago, I was a homeless addict facing a felony drug charge. Today, I am a business owner with a ministry that helps those struggling with addiction in my community. I never imagined God could use me in such an amazing way. He placed a call on my life to bring hope in an unusual way to a world that so desperately needs it. I hope you can join me on this ride through my journey to change the world. My hope for you is that when you follow this story of my life that you will see how amazing God is and how beautiful his grace can be if you allow him to work in your life.
