Happy Sunday 🙂

Happy Sunday friends, hope everyone enjoyed the weekend!

I’ve been under the weather with a respiratory infection and it has taken all the life out of me!🥺😷

I’m feeling a bit better today as I get ready for worship this morning!

Our church has decided to commit to the Daniels Fast for the next 21 days and I have decided to join in!

There are so many reasons why I feel I need to get closer to God!

Have any of you fasted before?

Did you do it alone or with a church?

I have fasted for Lent but never like this before so wish me luck!☺️

In the meantime, as I was researching this fast I came across some of the benefits that may help me as well:

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
