How God Uses The Broken Pieces Of Life with guest, Pamela McCloskey, Founder and CEO of Pamskey's Place, LLC
Pamela McCloskey is proof that you can rise out of the pit of unworthiness and overcome the deep-rooted beliefs keeping you from living your authentic self. Abuse, house fire, betrayal, death, illness, and hardship are some of what Pamela, aka Coach Pamskey,  experienced on her road in life. She was left feeling angry, lonely, hurt, and anxious. She truly believed she was a mistake with no purpose. Not knowing where to turn for help, she spent many years depressed, walled-off, self-condemned, stuffing emotions, and acting out in rage. No one knew she was dying inside. She wore a façade to make everyone think she was fine.  Today, she has made it her mission to show women how to rise out of the pit of despair. For over 20 years, she has had the honor of speaking life to women who were without hope and provided specific steps through "The No More Method" that causes the change from the inside out. Pam also created "The One Method" to help women stay grounded and calm during anxious moments.

Midweek Motivation with special guest, Author, Inspirational Speaker Travis Evans!
Travis Evans is a person who had to overcome a lot of obstacles in his life since the age of 11 years old. His dad left when he was two years old. Some people would have said that he was done for. He believed he was nothing until college. He tried to give up; however there was a fire inside of him that will not go out.  After having two major strokes and several mini strokes, all of his friends left him but one. He was told that he was not going to be able to walk and that he was not intelligent. He learned through this that God would and will always be there for him. His mantra is PUSH, which stands for Praise Until Something Happens. Today he is the author of a book called “Don’t Give Up” a story about his life, what he went through, and how he overcame and is still overcoming today.

Monday Motivation with special guest, Motivational Life Coach, Fitness Trainer, and "Girl Friend of Authority" Beverly K Johnson!
Beverly K. Johnson is a motivational life coach, fitness trainer and “girlfriend of authority”. She is also the CEO/Owner of Genesys Fitness (GenFit),  where she believes in self-care being priority over caring for others because it is in caring for ourselves that we make the best caregivers. We believe that by helping women rediscover who they are after suffering a loss, she will be empowered to become her ideal self – physically, mentally and emotionally. Having been a Zumba instructor for years, Beverly K. Johnson knew her influence included more than fitness training when a candid conversation with an exercise client revealed that women in caretaker roles often forget about themselves. She named her new motivational fitness business Genesys Fitness because it signified a rebirth for the often “forgotten” woman: the divorce’, caretaker, empty-nester…Generally, the woman that takes care of everyone else and does/thinks of herself last.

As a powerful, nationally-recognized motivational speaker, Shawn Harper has inspired countless individuals and corporations such as Dow Chemical, Northwest Mutual, Beach Body, Chambers Of Commerce, Michigan Aggregates Association and Goodwill Industries to maximize their resources, harness their potential, and manifest their vision.  Growth and reproduction in the areas of leadership, capacity, teamwork, adversity, and communications are the hallmarks of winners.

 Melody is a walking testimony. Melody was a teenage mother that was told she would never amount to anything. Melody was told by doctors that she would have to learn to walk and talk  again after a tumor was found. Melody fought and beat depression and low self-esteem. Melody has experienced great loss; however, Melody strives to be that voice to others that with faith all things are truly possible.

As a therapist, she said, "I was struck by the prevalence of women's struggles with identity, worth, and purpose--and how these issues resonated with mine.

WOVE Inspiration's Monday Morning Motivation with special guest, Principal Author Dr. Carolyn Stephen!
“I Am A Black Woman” principal author, Dr. Carolyn Stephens has served as a family therapist for more than 7 years all over Atlanta, Georgia. During her practice in the primarily under served population, she discovered that 98% of her clientele were single African American women. As a therapist and family support specialist, she observed that these women shared a common diagnosis called PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). While serving as their therapist utilizing CBT (cognitive behavior therapy) practices, Dr. Carolyn felt the need to create a therapeutic environment where women could share the pain of their past while healing through the power of sisterhood. This led to the inception of the “I Am A Black Woman” book project in November of 2018. Dr. Carolyn assembled a team of 13 African American women throughout America eager to share some of their traumatic experiences and how they overcame the barriers that once stifled them.
