~~I have had the joy of sharing the past 12 years with my “Mr. International” Sean Pruitt. In marrying Sean, I gained a beautiful daughter. Together we’ve had three amazing children, and we’ve also adopted two gorgeous girls...Proudly making us a family of EIGHT!
Having been married for over a decade, we've learned a thing or two, and have endured our share of obstacles. Now we are blessed to walk alongside couples, counseling them in the power of unconditional love.
I consider myself privileged to have been born in this amazing country, a gift I do not take for granted. It is that gift, my love for my relatives in Cuba, combined with my passion and love for children; that inspired my husband and I to build three orphanages in Honduras, partnering with Impact Ministries International.
As a minister, I have the opportunity to travel the all over the US speaking, teaching and empowering others. I've also been blessed to be bi-lingual, and that has enabled me to speak to those in the Spanish community, as well as in other countries.
Since my husband is the owner and operator of Kingdom Exploration LLC, and we are a homeschooling family. We are very fortunate to have the ability to live anywhere.
Four years ago, we chose to make that move, leaving all our friends, family, and everything behind. In hopes to change the suicide rate in the-then suicide capital.
We decided to start by giving our local kids an opportunity to have a safe, nurturing environment, and began a weekly youth group with over a hundred kids that we feed and entertain, personally covering one-hundred percent of the cost. This has opened the door for us to mentor youth who have either attempted or contemplated suicide.
Relocating our family to a small town where there is no mall, skating rink, bowling alley or any type of rec center...Was a HUGE culture shock for my family (having come from Dallas, FT Worth.) We went from having everything just minutes away, to driving 4 hours round-trip every weekend for groceries. However, is taught is so much about ourselves and made us closer as a family.
We enjoy spending our time serving our local community and others globally. We feel that experiencing life first-hand is the best way for our children to learn. We believe serving is loving, and any service, big or small, can make an impact. You may not be able to change a person, BUT you can be the reason they choose to change!
As the Global Ambassador and international spokesperson for Safe Haven Baby Boxes, I am in charge of all international affairs, every email, phone call, ANYTHING to do with planting baby boxes internationally. Working to rescue newborn babies from abandonment.
I feel very blessed to work alongside the American Heart Association, Go Red For Women as one of their National Ambassadors. As their Ambassador, I've had the privilege of being the keynote speaker at one of their luncheons, teaching Zumba on stage in front of 50,000 at the Dallas Heart Walk. TV interviews, as well as traveling throughout the US, educating about the number one killer in women- heart disease.
I also advocate, promote and educate as the spokesperson for National Safe Haven Alliance. National Safe Haven Alliance works to support state efforts and prevent the abandonments of newborns through Safe Haven relinquishments.
Mentoring young women is an everyday "opportunity" for me whether it’s through the youth group, or through Our Life's Song Ministry. I've been blessed with everyday opportunities to encourage and develop young girls’ skills as leaders. Seeing the girls I’ve worked with achieve their goals gives me so much joy and makes me very proud and hopeful for the beautiful and intelligent women they’re certain to become.
As it’s been said before, “The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
