God gives us gifts according to his will. If you notice something about yourself that you do well with little effort. It's a given gift from God and the more we apply his word to our lives the more he continues to bless us. God has promised never to leave us or forsake us.



Short Summary

As a child, she had a near-drowning experience and begin having visits from what appear to ghosts or spirits in the nights. She couldn't make her family understand what she was living with so they could help protect her in the nights. She began to pray after watching her mother on her knees praying.

As an adult, after having a very prayerful life she started paying attention to her awareness in her life. The dreams appeared to be more vivid and understanding to something that was happening around her or in the world. After this discovery of herself, she wondered how she would let others know.
