We serve a good God who blesses us with our own unique set of talents and skills. God shows us in Scripture that we are expected to use these talents for His glory. These ladies are doing just that with their businesses. Danielle uses her spirit of encouragement as well as her experience in education to challenge women to live bold lives for Christ. LaShunda is using her God-given talents to start her career as a life coach to encourage her clients that even in the hard times, God is faithful, and that gives us a reason to smile. Karen uses her creativity and genuine love for people at her sweetshop where customers can set aside their stress and enjoy the moment and all the colorful treats. She also uses her business to bless the local high school and college students they hire, often for their first job ever.

LaShunda Felton works for the State of Illinois while building her life happiness coaching business. With great excitement to see how God will launch this business, I desire to help women create the time to make memorable moments in their lives. We know that life will have happy moments and not-so-happy ones, but whatever we face, Christ gives us the power to push through and smile at the same time.
