I like to say my story began 20,824 days ago, I was born into a purpose I had not yet discovered. As a native Phoenician, I had never met anyone who had a story about living a life on purpose. So imagine my amazement when on what I felt was my death bed, God spoke to me telling me the assignment I was working on, as part of my Master’s Degree program, I was to take that assignment and bring it to life.

Little did I know that the solution would be named “Hope’s Crossing” Read More

Laura Bulluck gives Disenfranchised Women Tools to Achieve a Better Life
