Take a few steps with Jameece along her journey from
Gary, Indiana, to Northern Virginia. Share her experience.

23 The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step].

24 Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.

25 I have been young and now am old, yet have I not seen the [uncompromisingly] righteous forsaken or their seed begging bread.

Psalms 37:23-25

Steps Remaining

Be Encouraged, Be Empowered, Be Uplifted, Be Inspired!

Jameece’s story is her journey, from overcoming challenges and obstacles to experiencing triumphs and victories. While her steps from childhood to adulthood on the road to 50 have not been easy, her faith, family, and friends kept her focused and firm in her belief that she could do anything.

Jameece Celebrates 50

The pandemic altered how Jameece originally planned to celebrate her birthday. She will hold four different "invitation-only" events with her family and friends. We encourage you to sign Jameece's guest book to let her know you were here and to wish her well as she steps into 50.
