My favorite Scripture is John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
I went through a point in my life where it was chaos and I didn’t understand why. John 10:10 came to me and I knew that what God had planned for me was far better than the life I was living. I let God lead me to abundant living. You can too.
This verse drives me to be an effective counselor too. I love helping others have an abundant life, specifically by strengthening marriages or fighting suicide. One of the ways I feel most prepared for this profession is my ability to listen, analyze others, and look deeply into other people’s worlds. I like to ask thought-provoking questions. I’m a blunt Sagittarius. And, I enjoy shaping the situations you bring me into something that will help you live your best life.
