Prophetess Asha's Story
Truthfully, it has not always been an easy road. Some of my struggles in learning the voice of God and understanding people was realizing I had so much to learn. Being humble enough to learn through the mistakes of others, difficult conversations, and most of all harsh developmental environments has been key lessons in my life. I’ve grown through the pains, and I developed in character. One of the ways we can hear God is to have dealings with Him. Usually that means going through challenges. Challenges come to make us stronger, better and give us depth of character. So in dealing with friendship betrayal, lies, and disappointments, I’ve learned to overcome and still strive to be the person I knew I was created to be.
I have always known my life was meant to bring life to others. Since a teenager, I’ve found myself at college starting my own faith-based organization to lead young women into their path of destiny. Teaching, equipping and empowering others weekly to have faith and to press past their hardships. I’ve continued in my journey and walk to help those in need. I started The Jesus Life Company, Inc. in order to bring material aid and spiritual enlightenment to people who are in need, and who are called to greater. I firmly believe every person was born for a purpose, and all it takes is someone to believe in them, model the way, and encourage them to dare to show up as their true self.
Today, I am still impacting women, men and children through prophetic teaching, coaching, mentoring and training. I believe once a person can tap into their gift and potential in God, they can do just about anything. As a little girl from the Bronx, NY with no father, and a mother who died when I was just seven years old, I did not see the odds against me. I had sisters, a supportive family and above all, a father in heaven that always lit the path ahead of me. So I’m here to help guide people to their paths so that they can forever walk in His light.
