MIN. LILLIE JOHNSON
TOPIC: Come to Jesus and He will renew your mind and change your attitude.
Minister Lillie Johnson retired from the beauty profession that she enjoyed for forty-two years. Following her retirement, God called Minister Lillie Johnson into a new season of life - full-time service in ministry at Open Doors Community Church in Houston, Texas. She serves under the leadership of senior Pastor Felton R Joseph. While she smiles at the future (Proverbs 31: 25) this season of ministry brings feelings of excitement, anxiety, uncertainty, and a hopeful expectation that God will continue to do great and new things in her life. Must of all, Isaiah 43: 18-21, gives her the courage to embrace the calling on her life and to walk freely with the confidence that God is in control.
"Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The beast of the field will honor Me, the jackals and the ostriches, because I give waters in the wilderness and rivers in the desert, to give drink to My people, My chosen. This person I have formed for Myself; They shall declare My praise."
Today Minister Lillie uses her spiritual gifts to lead the women’s ministry at her church. In addition to her discipleship of these women, she devotes her time to God’s Good Girlz Ministry, which she started ten years ago. She soon will be publishing a workbook for use in women’s bible study groups.
Lastly, Minister Johnson’s hobby and love of beetroot juice have developed into a unique fitness and wellness business called Mint To Be Healthy Company. We must take care of our bodies to be able to do God’s work while it is still day.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Minister Johnson looks forward to sharing and encouraging the attendees of the Walking in Freedom! Workshop, Embrace Who You Are.

JILL HANEY BORDELON
Topic: Come to Jesus and He will comfort your troubled mind and renew your spirit.
Jill Haney Bordelon is a mother, a teacher, and a friend of Jesus. She was born and raised in Louisiana where she developed a passion to know the Lord deeper at a very young age and pursued this with high expectations. After experiencing religion, she searched harder for the relationship that she knew existed. Her adult life landed her to multiple levels of relationship and spiritual growth that is a testimony to God’s grace and mercy. She became a teacher and has been in early childhood for 16 plus years. She truly believes that this is her calling, not a job.
She is the mother to one beautiful 14-year-old daughter and thanks God daily for that challenge! Her foundation is simple: Jesus saves! Her message is simple: Faith will always prevail! Ms. Jill has experienced REAL genuine life experiences that she did not plan for but uses every circumstance as a chapter of her time on Earth; It is an opportunity to witness God’s works and experience growth in Him. Prepare yourself for a teacher who wants to speak REAL life, REAL thoughts, REAL troubles, REAL RENEWAL in Christ Jesus!

TOPIC: Advocating For Me
Hi, my name is Zee, thus the “Z” in Kupz. Zee is short for Zephaniah, which is the ninth of the twelve prophets. Zephaniah means hidden by God. Although Zephaniah is meant as a masculine name, I believe God gave my mother insight when she chose this name for me because God hid me until it was my time to be used by Him and to walk in the purpose He designed for me. I am a server first and a leader and an entrepreneur second. I place a high value on family and friends. I believe there is room at the top for everyone to get a seat at the table, so as I make my way and leave room for those I love. I am grateful for the strength, courage, and level of faith God has instilled in me, which is exactly what I needed to decide to branch out and start my business.
As a woman with full-sized breasts, I have found it difficult to find a bra line that caters to Kupz of all sizes. I became tired of having to compromise comfort for cuteness. I believe every person has the right to feel comfortable and sexy.
A bra for your outfit is like the foundation of your makeup. I woke up one day and decided to commit to finding a solution for everyone. Whether you have a small frame with large breasts, a plus-sized person with smaller breasts, or a plus-sized person with large breasts, whatever your dynamics are, I am committed to putting the Joy in your Kupz.

FRIDAY NIGHT (LADIES NIGHT) MINDFULNESS PANELIST
Founder and CEO Ebony Victorian started Grace Me Company out of a search for solutions. In 2018 Ebony visited the dermatologist to identify skin-related issues. The doctor's first question asked, "What are you placing on your skin"? Ebony started to think that she basically would put whatever smelled good on her skin and never pay attention to body moisturizer active ingredients. The doctor suggested trying some natural remedies, and that's when the research began. She identified the wonderful world of shea butter and its moisturizing benefits for skin and hair. Shea butter, along with other all-natural oils, was created, and Grace Me Company presents Premier Moisture was established in 2019. The company's vision is to provide beneficial information on natural healthcare and deliver quality products to customers abroad. This is her story in the making.
Ebony graduated with a Bachelor of Business in 2006. She has worked in government for approximately ten years. Ebony is married with three children and caring for a bonus nephew.
From that spark in 2018, Premier Moisture has grown to become all-encompassing healthy information and natural skincare line. GMC-PM offers a wide range of products, including soaps, hair oils & length enhancing hair creams, lotions, and the widely popular body butters.
