When her close circle of friends were in college preparing for exciting careers, at age 21-year-old Venus was the stay at home mom of an infant daughter and married to a bi-polar drug addict who, unbeknown to her, often hallucinated about murdering their entire family then killing himself. She never imagined that God would give her a second chance; and that someday she would become a fervent, sought after advocate for Christian marriage – coaching, teaching and encouraging other women that they too, can have a Joyfully-Ever-After Marriage.
Venus is dedicated to helping married women find joy in all situations. She also teaches brides-to-be and someday brides how to choose wisely. Her words of wisdom are seasoned with love, support, and truth: a combination any woman can benefit from. Single women receive spiritual and practical preparation so that they can be ready for Boaz before he shows up!
In her books, blogs and workshops, Venus candidly shares her own experiences – the trials as well as the triumphs. She is passionate about cultivating a community of what she calls “P31s” – empowered, yet nurturing women who know their value and operate within the purpose for which they were created. She is also the author of Brown Paper Bag, a novel.
She and her husband Jerome have been married since 1985. Their blended four generation family is comprised of five adult offspring and 15 grandchildren.
Venus and Jerome serve as the co-directors of the Uplift Family Ministry at their home church, Greater Grace Temple in Detroit, Michigan. Her platform of Joyfully-Ever-After Marriage offers hope, healing and assurance that contrary to popular belief, monogamous, joyful marriage is indeed alive and well!
