Elizabeth recalls the day she woke up and prayed to God to help her. At that moment, she realized she could not give up on herself nor her family and she would not allow this situation to consume her, she had four young people that needed her to not give up. My mother always preached that the Lord never gives you no more than you can handle. Elizabeth has four beautiful children who’ve only had her to depend on, she puts their needs 1st and that became her motivation to get back on track. Elizabeth has always felt that being a single mother has been one of the toughest yet most rewarding gifts in her life. They have always been her constant motivation to remain focused on obtaining her goals, one of which, is to own her own home.
