Being Branches Not Leaves with Felicia Hines

“I got the opportunity to sit with this woman whose character cannot be contained and whose story is bigger than the time we had to chat. She was tossed from home to home as a young girl and she was treated like an outsider. She became hardened and angry. That pain would show up in her body as illness. But she survived. But, she survived to become a who tells it like it is while keeping God in focus. She’s full of life stories. She’s a sister-friend and another F50Woman.”

We Talk About…

·         Survival as a mom before twenty

·         Looking back and seeing God

·         Defensive mentality

·         Real talk with young people

·         Saving her son from the gang

·         Lesson learned talking to the girl that no one talked to in school

·         The night her mind snapped 

·         The unfortunate turn caused by advice from another elder-mother 

·         The lifesaving gift of the advice from Elder-Grandma’s words “you can call on Jesus”

·         Sickness caused by anger and unforgiveness

·         Women showing up in life that offer advise like moms

·         Friendships as roots

·         Telling the truth in love

·         Fighting God because of fear

·         Work at a food pantry
