A.L.A.Y.A Ministries is an exceptional nonprofit that is truly making a difference in women's and young girl's lives. This non profit has taken on the challenge of assisting women who have all types of challenges and obstacles that life has given them. And then they also have a mentoring program for the younger generation of women. It is a true image of what a non-profit should be and stand for if you are going to represent a non profit organization.

I have had the honor of conducting the leadership training for the ALAYA Ministries mentoring program and I have to say the GOOD Girls program is amazing. The leadership team for ALAYA is in tune with the needs of the girls in their community and they are dedicated to providing the young ladies in their charge with guidance, love, and examples by which to build strong foundations for successful futures. I look forward to continued partnership with this organization and facilitating more training workshops to develop their mentees be the best possible leaders in their communities.

I first encountered Alaya Ministries at their event Divas on the Rise. It was was an awesome experience. Women were encouraged, uplifted, acknowledged, and rewarded for their service to the community. Ever since then I have been a fan and supporter of Alaya Ministries. I am an Executive Director of a non-profit organization myself, so I know how challenging it can be to serve the community and stay on budget. I encourage anyone to donate to this organization, I know they have a heart for their mission and are truly doing a great work.

My Ministry W.S.O.H.O.M.M was a sponsor on their Outreach as well as a participant in their E.S.S. WALKATHON (empty sella syndrome) that was to educate women who have not been able to become pregnant and suffer from this syndrome. The purpose of that walkathon brought awareness to the community of Missouri City, Texas and also women across the globe. A.L.A.Y.A. is obtaining ways to have more research in finding out how your pituary gland becomes empty and educate women as well as men. I have worked on other Community Outreach Projects with A.L.A.Y.A. Ministries as they partnered with W.S.O.H.O.M.M. in the area of providing school supplies to the Third Ward Community in The Cuney Homes Housing Apartments, or just children who were in need by word of mouth through our ministry as mothers of low income would call me and have a need to register their children in school and needed school supplies, I called A.L.A.Y.A. Ministries we met off the beltway she gave me back packs for a boy and a girl and distributed the supplies to needed children. Mrs. Colquitt is an awesome women of God and it is a honor and privilege to partner with her in Community Outreach Projects. She is a young woman of excellence and integrity.

When first asked to be the Recording Secretary for th ALAYA Ministries, I was in no way hesitant. To me, anything you are going to do for God and to represent Him, I am all for it. ALAYA has really opened the door of potential for me by allowing me to see myself. Seeing something that was inside of me from birth and allowing myself to let it go and develop. ALAYA has taught me that all things are possible with Christ Jesus. There is no limit on what can be done. The possibilities out there. All I woud have to do is believe and grab them. Being a single parent, I have had to use this a lot. ALAYA has reached in and taught me just that. Plus the outreach to younger kids of school age has been great. They look up to you for attention and development. ALAYA is there to help them and all.
