The foundation of I Am Handpicked is  John 15:16 where God is saying to us, " You have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you and appointed you that you may bear fruit and your fruit will last."

Marlo has been regular to our annual vision board parties. It's our job mission to help women see their strength to overcome challenges,  help them pull out their vision for their future, and connect them with God's purpose for them. In 2017 I remember Marlo humbly attending setting goals of things she wanted to let go of and seeking drastic change. When we saw her again in 2018, she was holding a conquered 2017 vision board, sharing her victories and accomplished. In a year Marlo went from facing and conquering her past to becoming a minister helping others do tghe same! #Handpicked
