Growing up, I had not one person that I could confide in about anything. I was a broken child who kept cutting herself when I was trying to put the pieces of my life back together. I began making decisions against my better judgments, and my whole life up until I was in my late teens was trial and error! Which became a disaster. I was a wreck emotionally, physically, spiritually, and especially mentally. Until one day, I woke up and decided to move to a whole new city and start my life completely over.

I began to understand that only I was in charge of my healing, regardless of how traumatic my hardships and pain was in life.  I had to dig deep into my internal lining and separate facts from feelings and fully dive in and seek the help that I had been crying out for years to obtain.

I’ve always been very unapologetic about my FAITH and my relationship with God. But sadly, I didn’t see much representation of the unfiltered Christian. Unfiltered in a way that couldn’t be explained, and it wasn’t the norm. The LOUD Christian. The kinda ratchet Christian. The Not held in bondage Christian. Do you know Her? That IS me.

But sadly, I didn’t see many people, women especially who had a “Peter” mentality when it came to the love of Jesus. Many people won’t expect to see a “Peter” in a woman. A woman who was on fire for Jesus loved him with all of her beings, slice an ear off for Jesus in a HOT second, all while still failing Jesus daily! All while knowing that Jesus loved me JUST AS MUCH!

Along came Pretty And Prayed Up! My mission was to create a community of women who didn’t have to choose between what a Christian woman should look like. A community of women who may not know all the scriptures, all the worship songs, or even know GOD at all. Because over here @ Pretty And Prayed Up, whatever you look like- Please believe, we are letting you in with OPEN ARMS! Just like Jesus did with us! So Yes! You can be popping and love the lord, all while speaking the fruits of HIS WORD and changing the world forevermore!

My PERSONAL Mission: To Empower the Unfiltered Christian woman to be all that GOD called her to be, despite what GOD’s judgmental and *annoying* children see! *drops mic*
