What is your definition of an Inspirational person: Someone who encourages and offers support to and shares knowledge with another, and sets a good example within his community by living an honorable life, including contributing to the well-being of others and the community in general.
What is the difference between someone who inspires vs. someone who gives false hope? Anyone who gives false hope is a liar not to be trusted.
What legacy do you plan to leave for your children/those that look up to you: I want to be remembered as a loving, compassionate and giving woman, wife, mother and friend. My husband and I have provided family values and morals, and a strong Christian foundation to our two children, now in their 20’s. As a result, they live by honorable standards and are compassionate and caring, confident in themselves and their futures.
On Following Your Dreams: 20 years ago God planted a God-sized vision/dream in me, with a burning passion to fulfill it. Now that I have finished raising and nurturing our 2 children, I can focus on the mission – High Tower Mission.
On Saturdays, one can usually find you: in my Design Studio, designing and making jewelry pieces, fulfilling commitments.
What is your favorite quote/scripture: My Grandma sometimes said “God give me patience, and I want it right now!” My Grandma had great patience, and was very kind, gentle, and loving. So this always made me giggle, and still makes me smile!
Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years: As I continue honoring God, and giving Him the glory, because He is my Source of inspiration and creativity, He always blesses the work of my hands, and His blessings pursue and overtake me so much that they overflow, too much to contain – so I just have to continually give it away! As a result, five years from now I will be well-connected with the Memphis community, and collaborating with the elite and influential women here in planning and executing my God-inspired, God-sized vision/dream/purpose.
And in 10 years: That vision, High Tower Mission, will be operational and successful, and duplicated in all major U.S. cities. A fully-functional, high security faith-based homeless shelter/rehab center, complete with minor medical and dental care, psychological diagnosis, medication and monitoring, life-skills training and mentoring, with a self-contained city-wide transportation system. It will have a safe nationwide relocation service to facilities in other system-wide facilities. This will include high surveillance and security systems and staff, rescue and intervention.
