“I believe heart work is soul work, and doing the soul work produces peace, joy and freedom.”
Who I Am
A child of God, Wife, Mom, Daughter, Sister, Friend, Servant Leader, Writer, Founder, Visionary and Executive Director, Heart Transformation Coach...whew! I heard in a sermon by Pastor Craig Groeschel of Life Church that everyone manages five lives daily – the Professional Life, Spiritual Life, Private Life, Social Life and Family Life. That is a lot of lives to always manage and be authentic! Born and raised in Ghana, I migrated to the United States where I earned my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Business Administration and Human Resource Management all thanks to my Late father James Ebow Coker. I have worked as a Champion for People Development for over fifteen years in various private and public sectors and I have been recognized for my commitment to leadership, inspiring women in business, and having high standards of excellence.
Life has taken me across many continents; I have experienced lowly valleys and high mountain tops. Such experiences – childhood and young adulthood sexual abuse – tainted my heart and mind. I know what it means to suffer without God, and to suffer with God. For almost twenty-five years, I lived with a heart full of hurt, pain, shame, guilt and above all unforgiveness until an encounter with the Holy Spirit again, put me on the path towards FREEdom. It was in the seventh year of my marriage when God finally took a hold of my heart and through hard tearful spirit-led work, I slowly shed the weight of my past and embraced the possibilities of living joyfully and FREE. Yes, overcoming the hurts and pains didn’t happen overnight, it was a tough journey of emotional turmoil but ultimately, I received my healing and out of that a purpose born. As I regained control of my being, I fully stepped into my call to take care of women’s hearts towards joy, peace and freedom. Being FREE is to be Faithfully Renewed Encouraged Exceptional woman who is unashamed; knows her worth and is confident in who she is – a child of God. She is free from guilt, hurts, pains, strongholds and shame. A FREE woman enriches her mind, body and soul with biblical teachings. People are blessed by her words and actions, uplifted by her presence.
Experiencing heartbreak, loss, betrayal, disappointment, unrealized goals, unfulfilled dreams can leave the heart bruised and hurt. As humans we live in a body, we have a soul and shine our spirits every day. Just as you take care of a broken leg, when your heart experiences trauma, it needs to heal.
During my personal transformation journey in 2016, I did the heart work to set my spirit free from the bondage of depression, loneliness, disappointment, sadness…stuck in a tornado. Out of the trenches of sufferings, my purpose to take care of hearts and minds was born. The great losses I have experienced in life compelled me to finally search for my purpose. This journey of heart transformation birthed the I am FREE Woman Ministries Corporation which I am the Founder, Visionary, President and Executive Director AND a good ‘burden’ to transform hearts. A stronger relationship with God now fuels my purpose to see others live joyfully, peacefully and FREE. I put it this way, “I am your guide on the side while you are the sage on the stage of your life; therefore, you take care of business and together, lets take care of your heart.”
Life can be brutal sometimes from the little annoyances to the biggest sufferings and distractions. How do you manage all the hats you wear and still have your sanity? How do you balance it all as a woman after God's own heart? How...How...How! As a Coach, I help Christian women find balance and live a more intentionally focused life centered on their relationship with God, and with others around them. I have a passion for writing. I am the Lead Writer, and Content Contributor for I am FREE Woman ministries’ educational teachings, programs, and communications. My goal in writing is to always use my words to inspire, encourage and teach others how to choose life everyday.
I am also a member of Victory Church and actively serve as a Children’s Ministry Team Lead Coach and as a Facilitator in the Married Life Ministry. Managing these five lives - the Professional Life, Spiritual Life, Private Life, Social Life and Family Life - takes a lot of intentionality, focus and support. I am intentional in achieving life and business goals and I ensure my daily habits, routines and rhythms support the path God has clearly defined for me. I keep my focus on Jesus, even on the days when my vision is blurred…I focus on the Light. I enjoy active lifestyle such as hiking or running, and I enjoy cooking and traveling. Married to my supportive husband James for over a decade, we live in Atlanta, GA with our two children and a Boxer Labrador.
