    Congratulations!!!! Looks great!!! Would love to be with you again!

  2. I was amazed and inspired to see your educational background as well as expertise. I have been in college on and off since I graduated high school…I have attained an AA in Psychology, a degree in Fitness/Nutrition, coursework in Social Work, Nutrition Science, Computers and Psychology, and Basic Counseling. I’m currently working on attaining my BA in Social Science through Ashford University online. I work part time at a christian thriftstore in Leesburg; homeschool my son, Adrian;work part time as an office manager for my family business; and we just started a delivery/taxi service on my birthday. We are currently working on a study called 30 Day Mental Diet and it is bringing us closer as a family, despite the obstacles lately. Dear Heavenly Father, We Praise You, God from whom all blessings flow. Be with us guide and direct us. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
