The 2019 “Breaking Barriers” conference in Maryland was a phenomenal event.  I was there on behalf of media for the event and I took away more than I bargained for.  The environment was set for releasing and setting the path for growth. 

The speakers were personable and effective with their message.  The attendants were a mixture of professionals who showed each other with the highest respect. 

Overall, this event was not just work, it turned to be just what I needed to make some tough decisions.  I look forward to the next event and anticipate the growth that will happen as a result of this event.

I was moved by the energy of LOVE from everyone in attendance. The opportunity to share a message rooted in Divine Transformation that allowed others to heal and shift their mindset to a new way of thinking and a new way of living was both energizing and humbling.

This conference should be attended by everyone in order to support the continuous journey of transformation and Divine Growth in each of our lives.

I am grateful to know Vanessa Canteberry and humble to call her friend and inspiration.
