Now…Real Life Yolanda

Prayer and the prophetic are part of my DNA.

I absolutely love to watch movies! Comedy is my absolute favorite genre.

I enjoy creating opportunities for women who do not know each other to connect. Makes my heart melt to see new friendships formed.

Yellow and elephants are my favorite. They just are…

Taking adventurous vacations with my kids each year are a must!

I am addicted to traditions, literally. I love creating memories for my kids. My favorite tradition is to pack up and go to a hotel for Christmas…all the gifts and everything. There is something liberating about setting all the trash outside the door for someone else to take away. Don’t judge me…I always say thank you to the housekeepers for their dedicated service!

Last, but certainly not least…Raising my three amazing children is definitely among my greatest accomplishments: A son, Darius JaVar and two daughters, Kadazia KeSahn & Kyra ELise Perry. And God saw fit to give me a few added blessings, my grandson, JaVar Adrian Perry…and chunky long-haired chihuahua named Pennie. Oh…I also have many bonus kiddos that pass through via foster care, that I love like my own.
