Welcome, Brenda. What would you like for our readers to know about you personally?
I have a very healthy fear and understanding of what the Lord expects from me. With that fear and understanding comes the desire to never disobey Him or step away from the destiny He has for me. My biggest fear is displeasing God.

Tell us about your family.
My family is wonderful. I have these great kids and twenty grandkids and 2 great-grandkids. I was an only child, and I asked the Lord early on to have a great big family, as well as twins, and I have both. I feel like I am the most blessed woman in the world. I handed all of my children over to the Lord when they were young. I remember one time seeing a funny slogan that showed parents wishing their kids had come with instruction manuals. I saw that and thought, “Well, there is an instruction manual. It’s the Bible.” That is how I raised my kids.

Have you written other nonfiction books?
No, Miss Brenda and the Loveladies is the first one.

Do you have any other books in the works right now?
I am currently working on a devotional book.

What kids of hobbies and leisure activities do you enjoy?
Events with my family – I love anything to do with family. I am an avid reader and love to study. I study everything I can find time to research. You know, the computer opened a whole new world to my generation as well as all others. As a child I loved to read encyclopedias, and now, I am in love with Google.

Why did you write the featured book?
What do you want the reader to take away from the book? Early in the ministry, I realized as I was praying that if you really want to reach people, the media is the way to do that. So I believe the Lord directed me to write a book. I wanted people to completely understand what it’s like for these broken women and why they made the choices they did – to understand the ones society normally turns their heads away from when they pass them on the street – and to understand what it’s like to want to please the Lord and follow His will into your destiny. Nothing more and nothing less.

Is there anything you’d like to tell my readers about you or your book?
Yes, please read the book and then view the movie when it is released, and share with your Christian family. Together, we can bring awareness to this issue.
