I’ve actually gained it! ‘I’m All F*d Up’ doesn’t mean what you think. It actually means, I’m all freed up!  For years I was afraid to expose my failures, frustrations and fears.  That’s how the devil kept me in bondage.  I finally realized that if I exposed myself, he could no longer blackmail me into thinking that I wasn’t good enough.”

“I decided to tell my story because when people don’t deal with unresolved relationship issues from their past, it tends to spill over in their current relationships. It’s time to break generational curses.  In addition, people feel like you have to come from a broken home to have issues.  My story is different. I came from a Christian home with both parents, I played the game by the rules, but I still had issues. So many people are committing suicide because they feel like they have no one to talk to or feel like no one is going through what they been through.  The bible states that we overcome by the words of our testimony.  Jesus loved us so much that he gave his life so that we can be free.  I want to be like Jesus…I lay my life down so someone else can be free,” she told us.

“I lay my life down so someone else can be free,” said Moore.
