Deborah’s Army 2015: Game Changers!


(view the entire photo gallery below!)

It has always been on my heart to pour back into women in ministry and share some of my experiences to help them along their journey. On Oct. 30-31, the Lord blessed me to birth the First Annual Deborah’s Army Mentor Weekend in Washington, D.C. Women ministers and ministers-in-training came from 20 states and two countries to be educated, equipped and empowered.

The theme was “Game Changers!” and the training featured two power-packed days of relevant, informative ministry information.  IMG_20151105_171256

I taught sessions on “Game Changers” and “Rules of Engagement.” There also was a session on legal issues within your ministry taught by Damien Fields, President and CEO of HME Consulting Inc. My good friend in the ministry Bishop Millicent Hunter taught a session on “Preaching through the Digital Age,” and we both took questions during a powerful, no-holds barred Q&A period. I also held a panel discussion with my ministry dream team and then we held a closing commissioning ceremony during which each woman received a certificate for completing the training.

And to all of those amazing women who are a part of the Class of 2015, let’s keep the conversation going on social media. Let me know how you are being a game changer in your life and in your ministry. Use the hashtag #DeborahsArmy2015!

And for those who missed it, make sure you register to become a part of the Class of 2016. There is an army rising up to do a tremendous work on the Earth!

Dancing with Broken Bones Conference in Trinidad May 28-30


Many of you have heard me tell my story before. I lived in a shack in a tiny village on the Island of Trinidad. When I was a child, my mother would frequently ask me to go to a neighbor’s house for ice for our household. The dirty, little secret is my neighbor would touch me inappropriately in return for the ice. My beloved mother, Nell Wiltshire, died without ever knowing about my molestation. A few years later, members of my village pitched in and bought me a plane ticket for the United States. With $32 in my pocket, I left Trinidad and I said I would never go back.

Since leaving that island, I’ve learned to dance with the broken bones of fear, rejection and unforgiveness. I found strength — in spite of all of my brokenness — through my faith, which is founded in my relationship with God and God’s Word. And through my journey, I’ve learned that God cannot heal what we conceal.

Last year, God shifted me! Because my bones are no longer broken, God told me that I must go back to that island and that village. You must reveal to heal. This should be a way of life for all of us — it is for me. And it is for this reason that I will return to Trinidad in May to host my “Dancing with Broken Bones” Conference. There will be workshops and worship services featuring dynamic preachers including Rev. Karen Alexis, Elder D. B. Jeffers and Minister Ivy McGregor.

My hometown Laventille

I also will return to my village with my team to do mission work. We plan to distribute school supplies, build wells, build houses and provide other services. Although I’ve said many times that I would never return to my village or even Trinidad, I must. I must rescue other little girls. I must do my part to save other Daughters of Thunder.

Please join me in impacting lives in Trinidad. You can receive more information about the “Dancing with Broken Bones” conference online at or you can call 868.759.0471. Bookmark this blog to receive the latest information, or reach out to me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.

You can also partner with me with a $32 seed to support a school supplies drive for the children in my native country. In Trinidad and Tobago, we have a slogan that simply says, “Together we aspire. Together we achieve.” I believe we can aspire and achieve so much more for the kingdom of God when we work together.

Thank you for your support for this great work of God. And please keep the “Dancing with Broken Bones” Conference and mission trip covered in prayer.
