    submit to my Husband, who is an amazing man I love more and more each day.”

    never be broken; for it is not of His nature to break promises. Author and Poet, Dyonteniece P.
    Rice, uses her words to capture life’s most tender and treasured moments which are oftentimes

    of each individual. Individuals will come to know that the life that they desire is within reach of

    delivered her from them all. God created a way of escape for Dyonteniece and she believes He
    will create a way of escape for you too. Knowing this, she firmly believes God is using her to
    proclaim liberty to captives and to satisfy the afflicted souls as mentioned in Luke 4:18 and
