A sister-in-Christ who lived advocacy well as was Harriet Tubman. She was someone who experienced more brutality, heartbreak, and injustice than most will ever endure. And yet she lovingly and courageously trusted God… boldly rescuing hundreds from slavery in the mid-1800’s. Of all of the people I will have the honor of meeting in Heaven, she is one I am beyond thrilled to hug.
