WHY IT'S IMPORTANT
About Everyday Connect4
Everyday Connect4 is a nonprofit organization with a mission to connect women from all walks of life and empower them to find their God given purpose. We will strive to equip women with resources that will help promote positive change in their lives which will ultimately help change our community as we focus on four areas in life: faith, family, finance and fitness.
Statistics today shows that more than 40% of our households are headed by women. This means that women are now placed in a role that requires them to be more independent and self-sufficient. The resources that Everyday Connect4 will offer are being sought after more today than ever before. Our organization is determined to help provide access to a variety of necessary resources that will equip women with tools to help them become empowered in their new role as a leader.
Exposure is also important to Everyday Connect4 because often greater things are achieved when given a a visual. Women in positive relationships creates greater positive thinking.
Everyday Connect4 strives to remain at the heart of all women needs. Each opportunity women are given to connect, my prayer is that every one of them envision their own hidden heart desires that may have been hidden and their strength will be discovered.
“It takes a village” a slogan Everyday Connect4 believes in. We host quarterly workshops bringing in a village of various speakers to share wisdom and knowledge in areas that best serve the community. Having an encounter with so many inspirational speakers, their target becomes attainable.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
To connect women from all walks of life; provide an atmosphere in which they can envision a life beyond today. To give them a sudden exposure of their own heart desires that may have previously been hidden.
Hope for them to have an encounter with another woman that will help drive them toward greatness. Ultimately, empower them by equipping them with tools to help fulfill their God given purpose in life.
To strengthen the community while building positive relationships using a village of resources to educate women in 4 areas.
"FAITH, FAMILY, FINANCE, & FITNESS"
Where It Started
Everyday Connect4 was created after realizing just how many women were actually in my everyday circle of life. Since a little girl, I have always had a great love for people. After being an only child for more than ten years, you can imagine that every child I met was now by new best friend. Relocating year after year should have been challenging but for me , I was always intrigued by people being from so many different places in life; yet and still we were all so much alike. Now, I am beginning to understand all of my many relocations and meeting people were because God had a greater purpose. Everyday connections are the very connects that have challenged and created me to become who God had destined me to be before I was even created.
Working in the field of hospice (providing care for the terminally ill) more than eleven years now, in the beginning I was not able to understand why now as an adult with my own inner circle of friends other women were still somehow connecting with me. Only these women I always saw as different from me. The women I am speaking of were women who worked all day and night taking care of others and never found time to take care of them. The more I connected with them, the more once again God revealed they were me too.
So many women around the globe daily provide excellence service on their jobs, give great care to their families and often carry an entire community on their shoulder.
Everyday Connect4 goal is to allow these strong women to be vulnerable enough to open their hearts to their own desires that may have been hidden. Reimagine again by receiving the same things they give naturally, resources to help equip and empower them to regain strength to build what they may have lost building others. Because women are the backbone of every community, this will promote positive changes in them and give a clear vision for them to not just exist but to live again. Connections will strength their core four, their faith, family, finance and fitness.

Angel was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. She was raised by both of her parents; only in separate home. Louisiana has rich southern roots and her family made sure they were planted in her. If you were ever to meet her, those same roots will be extended to you too. Over the years, some hardships have been endured; yet, Angel maintains her magnetic smile. Everyone she encounters feel as if she's known them a lifetime because Angel has never met a stranger.
For as long as Angel can recall, she has always had a desire to teach and a heart to serve. Growing up, she moved a lot; often enough that at the start of her high school year, Angel had already attending more than 11 schools. But, it wasn't until well into her adulthood of realizing her many moves were preparing her for His greater purpose. Today, Angel loves meeting new people and she embraces diversity in the world.
Her passion for people has afforded her many opportunities to serve. Angel's helping hands have been used in several organizations; all affecting change. Local public schools, health and wellness, women in domestic violence, homeless shelters, prison ministries and many more she has touched.
Today, Angel has lived in Irving, Texas nearly twenty years. She is currently working on her Bachelor's degree at Wiley College in Social Sciences with an emphasis on Global Human Services. She is ecstatically grateful to God for all He is creating her to become.
Angel is a wife, a daughter, a sister and a mom to 4 beautiful young adult children and a Gigi to her first grandson, Mr. "Eli Benjamin" who is now one of her greatest joys in life.
