Gewanda J. Parker
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. AMEN!
I am a living testimony… and so are you, my sister! As the founder and CEO of Hope and Healing Corporation, I have been blessed to meet and connect with so many people and help them reimagine their circumstances and step into their greatness.
I believe to whom much is given, so much more is required, and since we have only so much time upon this earth, it’s time to put in work! I have invested my energies and talents into empowering young girls and teens across the nation and helping communities in need in Haiti and Africa.
But can I tell you when my life, and my mission, really changed? When my prayers were answered, and I became the mom of a beautiful little girl (now two little girls). I was over 40 and doctors, friends (really everyone) told me that it would never happen and that I should give up. But when those people gave up and stepped out; God stepped in. That experience led me to create TribeNMO40 (New Moms Over 40). TribeNMO40 supports older women who are entering motherhood for the first time later in life. We share stories, secrets, tips, and woes, while we uplift one another on our journey.
I have also ministered to many through music, as a concert soloist, and as an author. In my memoir, “It Only Hurts When I Can’t Run,” I share how I was raised within the foster care system, survived abuse, and overcame the stigma, shame, and feeling of unworthiness. I was able to not just be healed through my faith but to be transformed by God’s love. I now share my story as an example that we are not bound by the lives that we are in now. In addition, I authored “Feeding the New You: A Devotional for Spiritual Growth” and “Unsung Heroes: Deconstructing Suicide Through Stories of Triumph.”
You and I have everything it takes to change our circumstances. We can reimagine who we are by knowing that we are destined to be great!
