Meet Our Featured OWNers
I am someone's child, sister, wife, mother, aunt and a sister-in-law. Breast cancer survivor (2008). Love life and know that whatever we do, we do only by the grace of God. Love people and love working with my hands. Still growing even at 53 and beginning to have fun as my kids are growing. I love clothes and looking my best starts as soon as I wake up even when I am not leaving the house.
What is your favorite OWN show?
Oprah's Master Class is my favorite OWN show.
What are your three favorite things?
Three of my favorite things are books, movies and my journal.
What would your superpower be?
My superpower would be having the power to remind each person how we have the "grace" of God renewed each day.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
As soon as my eyes open I grab my bible and three prayer books from my bedside table.
What is the last thing you do before you go to bed?
The last thing I do before I go to sleep is write in my gratitude journal and read two prayer books and the lights are out.
What is the one item you can't live without, and why?
My glasses. I take them off as I fall asleep and put them back on as soon as I wake up. The world is a little blurry without them :)
What do you like that most people dislike?
Watching golf with my husband on a Sunday afternoon
What are you proudest of?
My siblings. We hang in there with each other.
Who is your hero?
My hero is my sister Violet Onyemenam who has had my back through thick and thin. She is the one I go to when I am done talking with God and still need help.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Texting at dinner or when I am trying to have a chat with my kids and the phone keeps going off.
What would you like to learn to do?
Ride a bike, never rode one
What are you particularly bad at that your friends tease you about?
Coordinated to the core. Most times my shoes, bag and jewelry match. When we go to our parties, we step out looking our best and my friends know that when I die they better making everything I am wearing matching or else..... Okay I will be dead so no need to stress :(
