Inspirational Artistry Ministry, LLC
is a creative production company that believes in the power of inspiration ~ divine guidance; and we use that power (which is shown to impact well-being, improve goal attainment and aid in discovering purpose) to tell empowering stories, develop creative communications and produce events that inspire people. We work with individuals and organizations that align with our values of sharing love, speaking truth and inspiring hope; and we offer an array of products and services, through which we aim to accomplish our mission.
People are broken; and families are broken. As a result, the communities and systems in which we live, work, become educated, build wealth and entertain are also broken. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, 20% of American adults reported struggling with depression and more than 60% of American adults experienced at least one traumatic event as a child (which often has devastating effects on physical health, mental health, quality of life and lifespan). To complicate matters, the CDC also reported that the divorce rate at 2.7 per 1,ooo people in the US in 2019... that was 746,971 broken marriages in the US alone. When we see these stats, it's no wonder why we see brokenness and violence, unfair and unlawful treatment, and a conscious disregard for humanity in our world.
We want to help people make sense of their worlds and the world around us. We want to provoke awareness of new possibilities in the face of adversity. We want to bring about clarity and foster healing. We want to help people and families build resilience. We want to empower people to live in their truth, to celebrate wins together and to help keep the legacies of our every-day Kings and Queens alive. We want to remind the world that we are all a work in progress; yet we are still brilliant, still dynamic and still amazing. We want to use the power of our stories to encourage Kingdom living.
Though the intangible things in life are often devalued in our culture today, we aim for the heart. Our words flow from our heart's posture; and words do change things. The words "God said..." are so impactful in Scripture because of the change that took place as a result of God's spoken word - the creation of light, waters, dry land, grass, living creatures and mankind. God's words created life. Our words also have the power to produce life or death, to hurt or to heal; to build or to break. When we combine this word power with the art of storytelling and the gift of truth, we actually harness the power to alter the way others' brains react to their environment. This evokes the mental, emotional and physiological responses from people that create change.
We believe that by inspiring people, we empower families; that empowered families help restore communities; and that all of this glorifies God. It's all connected, just as our life's purpose is connected to our Creator. Our humble mission begins with inspiration.
Change starts with Inspiration.
Greetings beautiful people! I'm blessed, humbled and honored to say that I AM the Owner and Creative Producer of Inspirational Artistry Ministry, LLC.

It was God's calling and this unique combination of experiences that birthed this ministry and business.
I slowly but graciously said YES to the call. And I'm still saying yes as God's plans and purpose for me continue to evolve.
I credit my start in leadership to my church - Compassionate (CTOF) Baptist Church in Raleigh, NC - where I currently serve in the Music Ministry and as Creative Arts Ministry leader. But most of all, I honor my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for the gifts and passions he gave me before I was formed in my mother's womb. He is who has equipped me and guided me to do this work. He gets the glory.
Blossoming from a marriage with my lifelong friend, I have two beautiful and talented children who love God, quality food, electronics and creativity - Sean Patrick and Jordyn Nicole. I love my family dearly and believe that they are a testament of God’s love and one of the greatest forces God uses to drive my dedication in ministry work.
