From as early as I can remember, I was always encouraging others to believe in themselves and their ability to get things done, even when I was struggling to believe in myself.

It’s no surprise to me that my chosen professions have always involved helping or inspiring others, whether this was through teaching special needs children or working in an after school program.

This blog for me is a culmination of a process of seeking to find and fulfill God’s purpose for my life.  With a better understanding of my purpose, I now write to inspire others to find their purpose and use it to inspire their culture for Christ.


I hope you find some inspiration here to do the same. To begin or continue your own journey of seeking to find and reflect the nature of Christ in all you do.

Here you can find a bit more about how I came to starting this blog: Run your race

I have written a free E-book to inspire the creative entrepreneur to chase after their dreams by looking at Joseph’s example. Find it here

Why I chose the name PowerfulU for this blog?

I believe that we are all striving to be a better version of ourselves. To me, the best version of ourselves is one that is fully surrendered to God and seeks to live a life that reflects his calling. We are all works in progress but by seeking to live out this calling we become our powerful selves, hence the name PowerfulU.

Thanks for stopping by!
