Sylinda Mumphery’s spiritual reputation is such that she has a heart for embracing women who have emerged as feel good stories.
Such will be the case when Mumphery host the third annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony on March 16 in Smyrna, Georgia.
CHANGING A GENERATION
Powered by Women’s History Month, the RTB (or Removing The Bandages) Winning Women Awards Ceremony will take place at the Smyrna Community Center, located at 200 Village Green Circle SE.
“The purpose of this event is to honor and celebrate women who are overcomers and survivors of domestic violence, rape, cancer, burn victims, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and so much more,” Mumphery told Making Headline News this week. “We also celebrate and honor women who are making a difference in the lives of others by giving back to their communities or serving our country.”
In addition, Mumphery said this event is essential, in large part because women customarily carry what she describes as “a lot of pain and sometimes carry our wounds in our wombs.”
“There are many that want to give up and throw in the towel,” Mumphery said. “Therefore, we take this night to uplift each woman and let our sisters know that we love them and that no matter what has happened, we are not what happened to us. We are beautiful, powerful, and have a purpose in life.”
The owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC, Mumphery’s RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony is a three-day event that will commence with a with an opening-day meet-and-greet on Friday, March 15.
The actual event will begin the next day and will culminate on Sunday with attendees engaging in morning worship and brunch.

“It’s a full weekend of sisterhood, empowerment, love and excitement,” Mumphery said.
Interestingly, for the time since the inception of Mumphery’s awards ceremony, there will be a segment that will be centered on honoring men, most notably three recipients who will become beneficiaries of the Mighty Man of Valor Awards.
“Our purpose for honoring men this year is that we’ve had a lot of men that have begun to follow the movement. We realize that men wear bandages as well, but carry their wounds differently. Many have survived through battles that should have killed them, but they came out alive and are also making a difference and giving back. They also deserve to be honored and celebrated for not giving up and standing tall for their family, friends, and community.” — Sylinda Mumphery
Having described the feedback as “incredible” since the inception of her event, Mumphery emphasized the RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony essentially is a platform, of sorts, for those being honored to tell their stories and testimonies of how God spared their lives and how they’ve had to overcome a slew of obstacles in order to continue standing strong, she said.
“For some, it’s their first time ever being honored or telling their story,” said Mumphery, who’s also an accomplished author, mentor, speaker, and an Atlanta-area radio talk show host. “So often we experience life’s interruptions and become blindsided, because we never expected certain situations, incidents, or tragedies to affect us directly.
Much to her delight, Mumphery’s assortment of hardships and personal tragedies throughout the years have never caused her waver. If nothing else, such unfavorable circumstances only fueled her desire to press and navigate toward her destiny, most notably through a movement that had become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ.
GOD’S LEADING LADY
“(The) Removing The Bandages Movement was birthed out of brokenness,” Mumphery said. “I never knew that God could take broken pieces and create beautiful art. After having two breast cancer scares and almost losing my left breast, I was hurt and ashamed of my wound. I thought that if I wore bandages daily, that I would not notice the scars. Even after losing everything and facing divorce, I thought that makeup, expensive jewelry, expensive car, shoes and clothes would cover the pain.
“As women, we look for love in all the wrong places and sometimes cause self-inflicted wounds to ourselves,” Mumphery continued. “This movement moves inside of me wherever I go, because every time I come in contact with a woman — no matter her race, socioeconomic status, background, size or shape — I want her to know that she does not have to live her life behind her bandages and that once she rips them off of her and embrace her scars, she will eventually find out that they are now her beauty mark, because God will give you beauty for ashes.”
