Love Letters


​A woman who contains so many attributes! To list a few: God-fearing, kind, caring, intelligent, dedicated, genuine, and beautiful! (inside and out!)​ I've attended prison ministry with her as she counseled broken-hearted women, seen countless tears as wide-eyed women received the Word of God from her.  Inspiring to say the least!  She speaks with such boldness as she releases speeches of encouragement and restoration.  Shay is a woman to be admired....she is real. Shay is relatable, she's been through a lot in her lifetime and has been restored by God.​  Shay is a counselor, I've witnessed her counsel and have been counseled by her.​ I  love that Talks with Shay is open to anyone now, regardless if I don't want to share her!  (Lol)​  She will give you words of wisdom directed by our Lord and Savior, as she is a woman of prayer.

​Talk with Shay....she will talk with God in prayer for and with you.  Just as she has done for me.  I love my talks with Shay."

Dear Shay,​

"I just wanted to say thank you.  You have no idea of how much I need your words of wisdom. I have a lot that I'm going through right now and I have to say your "weights" videos really helped me put things in a different perspective. I thank you for having these Talks with Shay because honestly that's things no one wants to talk about.  I needed to know and understand that I'm not alone and that I have God on my side.  So I thank you. You are the best."

Love always,
