Apostle Lydia Woodson-Sloley, author of The Supernatural Woman, takes on some supernatural responsibilities as a senior pastor, life coach, author, and motivational speaker. To add to her list, the jack-of-all-trades author will be hosting her own “Supernatural Woman” brunch, an event designed to inspire and encourage women.
“We will have an unforgettable event inspiring and encouraging women to get to their next level in life,” said Woodson-Sloley. “My objective is to empower Christian women who aggressively want to pursue God’s agenda for their lives.”
Woodson-Sloley shared that her inspiration for the book came at a time when balancing all of the different things in her life had become a challenge.
“I wrote a book called The Supernatural Woman and of course, that came out of being a caregiver for my husband at the time, working at a full time job, pastoring at a church, and my trying to live what I believe and believe what I live,” she said. “During that time, I wanted to give up. I was totally exhausted. I was emotionally exhausted – being the caregiver and the bread winner, — [and] I knew that only God could bring me through that, [so] I began to write.”
Since the 2013 release of the book, it’s clear that many readers can relate. The Supernatural Woman leaped to the top of the “2014 Amazon Editor’s Favorite Books” list and earned a five-star rating on the site.
“There was a lot that was going on that I had to face the reality of and make the adjustment and be everything that I needed to be,” Woodson-Sloley said about rising to the occasion of helping others by sharing her journey. “I took it a second at time. Who is the supernatural woman? She is the woman who came alive in me and I began to encourage other women.”
“The Supernatural Woman Brunch” will be held on Saturday May 16 at the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel (333 Adams Street) from 10a.m.-1 p.m. To learn more about the “Supernatural Woman” or to register for the brunch ($60 donation), visit www.swoman.info.
