about Deena E
individual

I am a lover of life, people, Jesus and history!!! Growing up, my family attended a Baptist church, but my parents were not devout followers. By 12 years old, I stopped attending church and started getting into a whole lot of trouble. In fact, I didn't come to know Christ for myself until I had an encounter with God that changed my life; I was 22 years old. Since then I have been steadfast in trying my best to live out my faith. At Liberty University I completed my undergraduate studies in Interdisciplinary Studies with focuses in Business and Sociology; I also completed a seminary program in Contextualized Leadership Development. The smallest things fascinate me! I love to learn new things and celebrate with others when they do too. I'm super excited about reading and sharing with you all! Sincerest Blessings!
