You have had the chance to watch her these last few episodes on The Preachers Of L.A.
E8: How do you mange children, charity and ministry?
I am still trying to find the perfect balance to it all. I think with a lot of organization and pray I try to manage it all. The great thing is that I am passionate about it. It’s still organized chaos.
E8: We saw early morning in your house. How does your day begin?
I start my day by spending time with God. I think that’s important. Everyday, I take 15 minutes and have a quiet time . The day starts with me spending time in scripture and prayer.
E8: How did you become involved in The Preacher’s Of L.A.?
It was the pastors’ project at first. When he ( Wayne Chaney Jr) bought it to me I figured that people would get a realistic view. The good part of it all is people get a birds eye view. I thought it would be healthy. We are always trying to be real with people. We are always trying to give perspective. What happened after the sermon?
E8: What has been the hardest part of filming the show?
Time wise it was a stretch. (Laughing) I would say weight loss was a priority. I actually have lost 20 pounds, by God’s grace. I saw that and was right on it! That was me being me totally. I thought it was fair perspective.
E8: Do you or did you watch reality tv before this?
Reality is one of my secret things I enjoy. I grab my popcorn and tune in to a few. I sit down watching and I am watching Preachers Of L.A.
E8: When can we expect new music?
I have just started the process. I hope at the top of year . It sounds good.
E8: How do you keep it all together?
I am just a calm person by nature. Many people don’t know I am a registered nurse by profession. With the kids, it’s easy to focus because I know how to stay calm, no matter what is really going on inside. I fast . The idea of fasting is common for me. Even though the things around me may be out of order, I find being focused draws me back to being spiritually grounded. Routine is a big part of what helps as well. It helps keep things in place.
