Brief Bio
Stephanneth Adams is a Spiritual Life Motivator, Author, and Women's Health CNP (2012). She was born in Maryland to the proud parents Dr. Stenneth & Mrs. Stephanie Adams. Her desire is to use her God-given gifts to help foster the success of women spiritually, mentally, socially, and physiologically. Stephanneth has always found that expressing herself through writing & dance came naturally for her. She is a born Motivator.

This is a gift that she realized in her late teens that God wanted to use. After placing her life in God's hand at the age of 17, Steph began her journey of walking into her destiny. She hasn't always been a perfect woman, but God has always been there to reshape and transform her into the woman that He desires her to be. Steph believes that God has called her to live her life as an inspiration to others. Through her own life's journey she has learned life principles and how to depend on the one who supplies her needs.

What was your reason for beginning Lifes's Journey: Woman to Woman?
My ministry is dedicated to women specifically because I myself am a woman and have specialized in women’s health-primary care. I have always had a passion to help others and to be an impact in the world. I don’t know why, but God chose me to be a role model to young and older ladies, especially in the black community. I notice that many of us have not found our purpose in life. We are lacking educational values, sexual worth, social stamina, financial peace, marriage values, and true spirituality. We are boxed in to fit the stereotypes, even in the church. It’s time the younger generation stands up and says, you don’t have to grow through all of that to learn life lessons. You can learn from the Bible and what you have seen others endure. Younger adult women, need to see women their age doing something with their life. They need to see that it’s okay not to meet the stereotype; that you don’t have to go way down depressed lane to learn. Will they go through things? Of course, we all do, but where are those that want to build a solid foundation and walk into purpose? I also want to help the women who have built her foundation, but needs to tear it down to build a better one. Many of us are trying to walk into purpose, but haven’t done the very thing needed to do so. That thing is GET OVER ALL OF YOUR PAST! Close that door and open the door of purposeful living. You can’t walk into purpose until you have closed your past.

• Share some information regarding your book Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman: Inspiration, Motivation and Truth for the Woman's Journey.

My book is about taking a journey, a journey where you confront your past issues of life in order to heal. Not a lot of books do that. They tell you to get over your past, but don’t take you on a journey to confront the past, deal with it, forgive it, let it go, and close the door. After that section, we journey to a place of forgiveness, peace, purpose, and preparation for God and love. This book empowers, renews, restores, and refreshes you on your personal journey. Life’s Journey: Woman to Woman is available at the following Amazon and with 2$ OFF Coupon Code AUQUQ5HN

What or who inspired you to write your book? At this point do you see any more books in your future? Was it a difficult process sharing your thoughts or translating your thoughts to paper?

I believe that God always had a purpose for me to write. I loved writing as a little girl. I remember writing about teenagers committing suicide, teen pregnancy, life struggles, and more. As a teenager, I had an incline to help others. Writing was one way to express my thoughts. It remains so today. When I was a pre-med student, my professors, used to tell me to write research articles because I wrote well. These were signs that I would eventually become an author. Writing was not a difficult process, but becoming an author was. You spend a lot of time and sacrificing to complete the project. After completing it, it has to undergo professional editing and that takes a long time, if done correctly. After that, you have to publish it and get it out there. The work is never done because marketing is a life time commitment. People won’t know of it, until it’s marketed. Becoming an author is a full time position. However, when it’s your purpose, you feel empowered.

What would you like to leave the readers with?
I want you to know that with God everything is possible. The key is to heal from your past and find your purpose. Everyone is trying to be like someone else. It’s time to just be you. Being you may mean to be a teacher, minister, healthcare practitioner, author, home maker, or etc, but it’s who God made you to be. Begin to accept yourself and your purpose.

Please share your favorite scripture or quote.
Of course it’s:

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28

But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
