For Quanita, everyday is a gift from God, therefore, each
day is a special occasion. We all have unique gifts that were given to us by
our Heavenly Father. For her, once the realization of those gifts was unveiled,
a more profound understanding of her spiritual lineage came about. 1 Peter 2:9
defines who we are
A chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
a peculiar people. We have been called out of darkness into his marvelous
light! Thus, for Quanita, there is no contentment with the ordinary. We are
children of the most high...that makes us extraordinary!
With Jesus as her Lord and Savior, Quanita stands firm on
Phillipians 4:13, I can do ALL things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
She is eternally grateful for the many gifts of which he has bestowed upon her,
and is humbled by the opportunity to give women something special and unique
that only they will own!
