Hello Everyone. I am Charlene and I am so pleased to have this platform to share some TRUTHS and lessons learned so far on my life’s journey.
I am a wife, mother of two, business woman and a representative of God’s Kingdom. Through my various experiences, trials and lessons learned, I have discovered some hidden treasures in the Word of God which, when applied, has unlocked the abundant life that God had intended for His children all along.
With my background as a school teacher for fifteen years, I am both qualified and equipped, but more importantly graced by God, to make the understanding and implementation of God’s word a realizable goal. I am an Attorney, Conveyancer and a Notary and am a partner in a medium law firm in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Moreover, I am living a life surrendered to Jesus Christ and I am empowered by the Holy Spirit of God (as we all are) to fulfill The Great Commission.
A Little OF BACKGROUND TO MY “RADIANCE”
I am one of nine children in a family made up of seven sisters and two brothers. My mother raised us primarily as a single parent and many of my victories in life are consequences of following her example. My mother laid the foundation of our faith and modeled the christian life to us.
Rejection, ridicule, insecurity and low self-esteem were the bricks of my foundational make-up. The enemy of my soul had been laying these beliefs in my psyche throughout my childhood and into adulthood, all in an attempt to thwart God’s plan and purpose for my life.
Getting educated and achieving academic and career success was an attempt to raise my self-esteem and live a victorious life.
This fabricated life, was no refuge for me when devastation hit my home and life recently. It forced me to turn to the only refuge that I knew deep down in my soul.
By prostrating myself before the Throne of God, I sought Him and I found Him. I began to earnestly study His word and realized that a relationship is what He desired with me all along.
So began my journey of discovering this beautiful, Radiant life that I found in God.
VENOM used as SERUM
As a wife, mother, business owner and christian, I would like to assist and support women of similar or not so similar backgrounds in traversing life’s journey with confidence, power and radiance.
I love searching the Word of God, hearing from the Word of God and illuminating or clarifying God’s principles which I’ve learnt, so that we can find practical application in our daily lives and situations.
My story is universal and there are many women and young girls, who settle for a sub-standard life, not fully walking in all of Gods goodness simply because, no-one broke it down and walked the walk with them.
RUNT TO RADIANCE
Through the storms, I realized that God was positioning me for His purpose. Searching for and finding, God’s keys to the abundant life, I know that I have a responsibility to share what God has brought me through and taught me.
Jesus said in JOHN 10:10 that He came to give life and give it in abundance. By searching God’s Word and applying His principles, we can find this abundant life and live it, bringing GLORY TO GOD in so doing.
