Kedan shares, “I look back now and think, God was rerouting my life. I had a sincere desire to have my life move in a positive direction. I had a sincere belief that my life could be better than it ever had been. I had a sincere conversation with the Creator to help me believe in hope. Then I made the move that was in front of me. I had a strong sense of doing something that would enhance my life, and I had to take the initiative. Although I believe God can bring the right person into your path, I also believe we have a responsibility for action. There are expectations from the Creator that we take steps that are the ones that will bring us to our destiny.”
