Author & Consultant
LaNissir is the author of Mom's Manual: Life Doesn't Come with a Manual, it Comes with a Mom where she inspires parents to creating an organizational strategy to bring JOY to the world's most important responsibility - Motherhood!

"Nothing about me is self-made. I owe God everything!" My journey began as a barren woman who was unable to have children. We sought the Lord about our situation and He opened my womb. During the time that I had to wait on the response to my prayers, I believe God was preparing me for such a time as this. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to encourage anyone who may be overwhelmed with the blessings of having children.
One of my favorite Bible verses that helps me stand on the word JOYFUL is Psalm 113:9. He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD. Also, I'm FEARLESS because 2 Timothy 1:7 says, For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. So no matter what your faith is let me empower and inspire you to live JOYFULLY and FEARLESSLY as you pursue your God-sized dreams.
