When I was a little girl my grandmother and her sisters my great aunts used to often compliment me and say nice things to encourage me and tell me to focus on God and say my prayers. I found my spirituality through a spiritual awakening where suddenly I saw beauty in nature and I had an experience with the divine or God or Jesus and I just knew and for the first time I was sure. I was not alone in this journey. I had an experience where I had a peace wash over me from my head all the way down to my stomach. I felt like I was just being soothed and calmed. I knew then that there is more than just this life or existence. There is more. There is a God!
