By the leading of the Holy Spirit she started Inspiring You Ministries, Inc. in October 2005 as a tool for marketplace evangelism, in which she created many programs and conferences such as Change Your Life (CYL), Girltalk, Mental Health in the Church (MHIC) Walk It Off Girl (Behavioral Mindset Weightloss Program) and WAKE (Women Advancing Kingdom Efforts). She received many awards and grants for the work that was done in the community.

Her efforts were designed to expose the Gospel to those who might not otherwise hear it. She is a marketplace minister, and totally believes that the Word of God is sufficient unto itself.
