2020 has been an exceptional year and one which will be remembered for centuries to come, as the year when the entire world experienced a pandemic. Despite what has happened in this year, God is not silent and continues to speak concerning his people. There has been a major shift in 2020, in our culture, economies, politics, international relations, national security and on issues regarding race and equality.
In the midst of great difficulties, has arisen greater opportunities as people with creative ideas have risen to the occasion to develop solutions to answer problems. We have witnessed innovators who have introduced new ideas and products and the internet has been used in ways that we never thought possible. Fix your lenses and take your gaze away from the news because their predictions have never been more inaccurate.
God taught us in this year how to harvest during the famine. (Genesis 26:12-14) We also learnt how this global shift has set the scene for a great wealth transfer. (Proverbs 13:22) God through his power and might has given us the strength and strategies to drive out many giants from our Canaan land of promise. And we are poised to go forward and take possession.
Like Joshua, we stopped to acknowledge and mourn the passing of some precious loved ones. We are comforted that they are at rest in the sweet by and by and we will see them again when we cross over to the other side.
Now we get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land that God has promised us. (Joshua 1) We are poised to subdue kingdoms and to bring every place where we have been sent under the authority of Jesus Christ. “Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses.” (Joshua 1:3)

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.
Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.
I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.
I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
