Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Grew up in a small, primarily Catholic, town in Louisiana, raised by her impoverished single mother.
She was often mistreated and shunned from others because of the way she grew up.
25 years ago, she found herself homeless, living out of a car; took a vow that she would never be poor again.
Determined to make a life for herself, she went to law school in Georgia and studied to become a prosecutor.
Then she wanted to pay it forward and help others overcome oppression in their lives, so she decided to become a judge.
As a judge, she finally felt a sense of pride-something she didn't often feel as a child.
After five years on the bench, she realized that she needed to reach out to others who were oppressed through ministry.
Decided to become a preacher and an ordained minister; also started a nonprofit that helps families and empowers women.
