My Passion:
Honoring our ancestors for their dedication and sacrifices that they endured. To recapture the spirit of all citizens to love, care, serve, and appreciate the foundation of our country. I believe that everyone on this earth is here for a divine purpose. That they all have special gifts and talents that they can use in order to serve one another and glorify God. I’m passionate about helping them discover their own gifts, passion, and educating others about the needs of their community and nation. With this education and instilling their passion in them, we as a nation can restore what our ancestors built for us.

Why did I start United to Serve: After visiting with many legislatures and citizens I knew it was time to unite everyone together to rebuild the foundation of our county. To do this we need to reinstate our core principles, morals, and values that our forefathers set out before us and as American citizens we need to be educating and inspiring all other Americans to appreciate our ancestors and carry out their legacy and vision for our community and country.
