It has been an HONOR and a PRIVILEGE to serve as your Ethnic Vice Chair for the last two years. As I promised, I have traveled our great state of Michigan, effectively, with the message of unity. I have been expressing the importance of focusing on what UNITES us and RISING above what divides us and the importance of uniting around our U.S. Constitution and our Michigan Constitution.
So many people across our great state of Michigan have been transformed and liberated with this message.
We have united many cultures and people from various walks of life into the MIGOP.
I am excited about the future of Michigan and I look forward to continuing my work in bringing unity and truth into the Grand Old Party; therefore I am running again to serve YOU as your next MIGOP Ethnic Chair.
I am asking for your VOTE on February 18, 2023 so that I can do just that!!!

LET US GO OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE!!
Many are concerned about the future of our state and nation. Many are concerned about their lives. I am reminded of a story that the Lord told me many years ago.
I was greatly concerned about a few things and I heard these words spoken to me by the Lord “Bernadette a deeper TRUST = a deeper REST”. He then reminded me of a Bible story.
I said: Yes Lord!
He then proceeded on and said: As we were going over on the other side, this great monstrous storm came upon the waters. The water began to fill up inside the boat and the boat began to sink. The disciples cried out, we are perishing. They proceeded to go to the stern part of the boat to look for me. They found me fast asleep. They woke me up and said, “Master we are perishing”! I got up and I rebuked the storm and the storm ceased.
At that moment, I was then asked a very important question.
The Lord asked me: Bernadette, why was I able to rest in the midst of the storm?
Before I could answer Him back, God said to me: Because I TRUSTED My word; when I said that we are going over to the other side, we are going over.
He also said: When you learn to TRUST My words you will began to rest in the midst of your storms.
I want to encourage us all, it does not matter what storms come our way in this life. It does not matter how the enemy is boasting himself so proudly saying “I got them now”, “ I got this state now”, “I got this country now. “
NO HE DOES NOT!
Please know that we are going to make it safely to the other side in VICTORY!!
STAY THE COURSE, and do not give up!!!
He said to me: When you learn to trust My words instead of what you see and feel, and even smell, you will have a deeper rest.
Liken the waves and water hitting the disciples to what has come against you in your life and what has come against our cities, our state and our country.
Jesus said that He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5).
I want to encourage us all, that the light shines brighter in the darkness!
We are walking in uncharted times, but God is with us. He is an amazing guide. Let’s allow Him to lead and guide us. We are coming safely on the other side.
The light in us will penetrate and destroy the dark and evil agenda of the enemy, as we use our authority that was given to us by our Heavenly Father. (Luke 10:19)
Let us choose to believe and TRUST His word so that we can enter into that deeper REST.
Love you ALL to life
