Contemporary Gospel Singer: Wes Morgan – got caught up in drugs and alcohol at the age of 10. He got hooked on cocaine and was living in the streets. He now is one of the greatest Gospel singers in this generation. Now, he ministers to other drug addicts and can be touched by their infirmity. He has a ministry dedicated to helping others who were in his situation.
3. Your purpose and destiny can be found in the gifts that God has given you. (Not just spiritual gifts; but the natural ones).
Perhaps you can make the best sweet potatoes pie every; or cook the baddest greens this side of heaven. Many of you looking at the spiritual gift (which could also be your destiny), but most of the times it’s in your natural gift. Perhaps you like children – open up a daycare to invest in lives. I use to cringe when I went to children’s church and there were 10 babies crying. I knew that wasn’t my gift. I use to see some ladies going “oh, that’s okay”. I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs!

Then in 1997, she decided to open a cookie shop and just that with the backing of a banker. Her motto is “Good enough never is”.
Halfway through her first day she had not made a single sale, so she went outside and started handing out her cookies for free. Soon people were streaming in to the shop to buy more of her cookies. She later changed the company name to Mrs. Fields Cookies to allow for other type of cookies than just chocolate chip. Besides being a Harvard Business School case study on business efficiency, Debbi Fields has authored various books including the "Mrs. Fields Cookie Book: 100 Recipes from the Kitchen of Debbi Fields" - the first cook book to make it to the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Debbi Fields is a shining example of a woman that realized the American dream.
From humble beginnings she went on to make it big. She lived and persevered through the unbelief of the naysayers and achieved something that most believed as impossible - a successful cookie business, big business. So after all is said and done, you have to admit Debbi Fields Rose, is one smart (and tough) cookie!
