Celebrate a milestone with our foundation- We are commemorating our 1st year anniversary.

cropped-dsc_0369.jpgThis day, morning, and moment, I celebrate a milestone that has been no less than God-kissed, educational, empowering, thought-provoking, challenging and constantly evolving for Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation Inc. Today, February 25, 2017, marks the 1st year anniversary of our nonprofit organization.

As the Executive Director and Founder, I am honored and blessed to have the opportunity to pursue my purpose & passion, helping to fight Domestic Violence, support efforts that empower, educate, and encourage survivors, victims, and their families to move beyond surviving the circumstance to thriving. Through this organization, I have learned much about myself as a survivor and person, others who work so hard to fight the epidemic of Domestic Violence, offenders, survivors, children, and families affected by it and yet I find that I am continuously learning and evolving. Domestic Violence has taken many lives, broken many spirits and bones, taken away innocence, to say the very least. This day is not only in celebration of our small organization’s survival over this past year, but also for the opportunity to cross paths, partner, learn from, and encourage others than are in this fight with me.

To commemorate our 1st year anniversary, we will be hosting an event to raise awareness and funds to support continued community efforts and organizational growth. The event will occur during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, April 2-8 2017. Specific details are soon to follow…. Mark your calendars for April 2, starting at 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. 🙂

We hope you will come out to commemorate our 1st year anniversary with us as we recognize National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (April 2-8 2017) in support of our organization’s mission and efforts. If you are not able to physically support, please consider donating to our organization at https://www.perfectly-imperfect-womenofvirtue.com/. All proceeds will be sown back into our organization and to support other organizations and programs that align with our mission.

In the meantime, please view some of the outreach activities and events were involved in last year (2016) below.

The Perfectly Imperfect Christian woman – Closer walk with God

The black-woman-praying-e1355876837323

Have you ever felt like you’re just going through the motions? When you go to church and read your bible, and try your best to live a life that is pleasing to God, but no matter what you do, you still feel a sense of distance and wonder if HE hears your call.

As a Perfectly Imperfect Christian woman, I desire to be closer to God and it seems so intense when I am going through hard times. I desire to have Him in my spirit and soul, yet I cannot surrender to him. Sometimes our circumstances take our eye off of the prize, God without us even realizing it at first. We are often consumed with texting, what is going on in the social media and who’s doing what that we lose our focus and miss our calling from God. We’re so focused on our problems, we forget about the one individual that can actually solve them. Today, take a moment and appreciate, surrender to, and have faith in God as he will never send us astray. Surrender and ask God for discernment – God is waiting to hear from you.

As of late, the demands of motherhood, Executive Director, author, mentor, the philanthropist chores have made my life very challenging. Often I find myself wondering how people do so many tasks, work, speaking, writing, taking care of family and staying sane. to find as much time and energy for spiritual disciplines as you’d like. But motherhood is a spiritual discipline in itself – a holy effort that God uses to help you grow more into the person he wants you to be– and it’s possible to incorporate other spiritual disciplines successfully into your busy schedule as a mom. As a mother of an amazing 5-year-old, it has taken spiritual discipline, creative spending, and working extreme hours to maintain a household and ensure my baby girl is happy and satisfied. It was with God that I realize my potential and pursued the passion and purpose God molded and created just for me. All challenges that I have encountered, I have no regrets because I know that it ALL happened for a reason. What about you? Do you know your passion and purpose?
