In memory of her and her vision for

DREAMS (Dedicated to Rejuvenating, Empowering, and Achieving Meaningful Success)



From the Heart and Spirit of Sister Badia…..

In our time of need, there’s a place we can all go. This place is
not an imaginary place only believers dream of. It is a place where we all can, individually, in our own time congregate and receive the strength to continue to dream God driven dreams.

Where is this place you ask? It is the Word of God. God’s word brings forth transformation, new life (John 14:6), strength, power, grace and the list goes on and on.

What does the word of God look like in human form? God’s word in human form is Jesus. God’s word is you and me. We are Gods word in action. We are formed in his image (Genesis 1: 26-27), given the opportunity every day to act out the gift of life to those we encounter.

It takes strength and trust to visualize and accept the new life given to us from the one and only creator of all things. When life tries to throw us off course with worldwide devastations, we are invited to trust, that this too shall pass (1 John 2:17).

After this worldwide spread of COVID-19, I visualize us having a stronger relationship with Christ. Us being kinder to one another. Us, mending and strengthening our relationships with family and friends. Us, starting new spiritual ventures, having fresh ideas, being fearless, showing more love, and more compassion for humanity.

In this time, we learn just how powerful our God is. In this time, we must allow Him to minister to our fears and put in place tools to strengthen our minds and hearts. How do I receive Godly strength? You receive it by setting aside a time to pray and study God’s word.

Setting a spiritual tone teaches us how to be strong bold believers to the people in our lives who may feel confused and weak. In order to have strength, we must learn how to trust in the source that supplies ALL our needs. Lean not on our own understanding, but in ALL our ways acknowledge that it is from Him that we can ride the wave of peace and strength during ALL circumstances!

We are all in this together! Let us continue to pray and receive from one another the strength to dream during difficult times. When we allow God to strengthen us for the journey, what He started as a dream, can be birth into reality!

God Bless you and Continue to be SAFE!
 Until Next Time.... Be Blessed and Encourage Someone today!

Peace and Blessings Persistently,
