Kate Henshaw Quotes
“The powers that all men possess are temporal, only Almighty God has everlasting power.”

“…Suit up, protect your space, sanity, and spirit. Be impermeable, smile, and laugh at their feeble attempt to put a chink in your armour.”

“Some people will never give you what you deserve. They will always find ways to cut corners and give excuses for not respecting your craft and your person. It is up to you to show them, and not accept crumbs when you are a full freshly baked baguette.”

“Never ever give your power to another being that came through the same channel as you did! Never ever dim your light…


“I cannot emphasize enough the need to be you. You have been put on this earth by God to be YOU!!”
