Note from Candida:

I’m so thankful that God knew His plan and purpose for me was far greater than anything I had envisioned or dreamed. He blesses me continuously to open my heart and share my struggles, perseverance, and hope with others. It is my heart’s desire to help others accept and celebrate their own differences. Please take a moment to read my books and share them with others. Together we can make a BIG difference in this world, and do so many great things. Thank you for taking the time to visit with me. I hope you will come back again and follow me on this amazing journey.
