"God has called me to be a mother of many. He gives me individual representation to each of His children to assure them that His presence is always with them. There are no age requirements; and I am privileged to demonstrate God's love to His children. God gave me the slogan: "There is always room for one more!" This keeps me very close to Him because this is a responsibility that I cannot handle alone."
