Christian Talk 1160 03-30-2019

Our guest today is Jennifer Imediegwu, Author ,Attorney, Wife and Mother will tackle this question in her book Letters to Her: Becoming a Woman of Purity, Purpose, and Proverbs 31 Virtue, which released early in the year. What is interesting about the book is Imediegwu’s weaving of statistics and personal anecdotes with Biblical truths.

Jennifer as a woman of color who grew up in the inner city, she has seen firsthand the impact urban statistics reflect. However, she was able to defy the statistics and personally triumph over such barriers. This gives her power to speak personally about overcoming challenges set forth before women of different backgrounds, cultures, and socioeconomic levels.

Imediegwu began her path toward this ministry to women as an undergraduate. She saw the need for a mentoring program for young girls and teens in her community, so she formed and founded a local nonprofit called Destiny Investment Initiatives and a mentoring program called Kingdom Jewels.

Kingdom Jewels was a group of local college students and young professionals who worked with at-risk girls in the Detroit area to help them find purpose and success. The leadership team worked to teach the girls interviewing, financial, and business skills, as well as guide them through social issues like bullying, social pressure, family dysfunction and academic challenges. Many of these same concepts, exploring what it means to be a Godly, purposeful woman, are developed and discussed in Imediegwu’s book.

After working with the nonprofit during her undergraduate college years, today she practices law in the greater Milwaukee area where she and her husband are raising their three sons.  In addition to being a wife, mother, attorney, and author, she also continues to work with the women’s and children’s departments at her local church. She leads life groups and serves in other teaching and mentoring roles. In addition, she has started a speaking ministry.
