#FeelingGrateful by Catisha Asbury

This is Day 29 of the 30-Day "Feeling Grateful" Blog Series on Grow Forward & Flourish. My heart is full of gratitude because of individuals like Catisha Asbury, who raised her hand and said YES! I'll be a part of encouraging others to embrace the power of gratitude in their everyday lives by sharing reasons why I feel grateful. Thank you Catisha!

Catisha Asbury has been a born again Christian since 1996 and was called into ministry in 1999.  God has enabled her to serve in the Body of Christ as a street preacher, intercessor, youth minister, spoken word poet, and now called to pastor.  

She began as ministry director, Women of Harvest in 2011.  Women of Harvest based on Luke 10:2 has ministered in coaching/encouragement to women and consult with them in ministry.  “The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few.  Pray to the Lord to send forth laborers.”  The ministry had a name change to Seeds of Harvest and has expanded to men, women, and youth.  The internet via Blogtalk radio and Facebook(s) has been the primary resource in getting this work accomplished.  The ministry has just celebrated a three year anniversary in May 2014
