Cynthia currently hosts a radio show entitled “Destiny” which was developed out of Cynthia’s desire to teach individuals how to seek and find their “Destiny”. The show highlights those individuals who have found their “Destiny” in life as well as their journey in doing so. The show is based on the Bible verse, Ephesians1:11-12: “It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.”(MSG)
