From Vision to Reality

Betty DeSelle Holman is an author and entrepreneur, in 2015 while at home recovering from an on-the-job injury, she stepped out on faith with the vision God had given her many years ago. In April of 2015, she knew that was the year and season for Canaan Independent living to be birthed into existence, so with the leading of God, Canaan Independent Living was started in the home of Betty Holman. Initially, she used her paycheck to start, sustain and feed 11 individuals. There was no starting capital, no SBA, no savings account, no seed in the game as they call it, all Betty Holman had the faith and a vision that this was and still is God’s will for her life. For, she believed in the Japanese Proverbial saying” If you have a vision for a year plant wheat, If your vision is for 10 years plant trees, If your vision is for a lifetime plant people” On that premise, Canaan was born, through providing a loving and nurturing environment Canaan is committed to planting individuals back into society through love,

“Kindness is seeing the best in others even when they cannot see it in themselves.”
