But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 NKJV)
EMPOWERED BY GOD
DALLAS — Although the pain and agony of having lost a child to death still lingers, God has still blessed Nekelia “Nikki” Brown considerably, something by which she doesn’t merely take lightly.
“God has healed me and blessed me with two other children since the passing of my child,” Brown, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable, emotionally-driven developments that contributed mightily to her latest endeavor. “I really wanted to pull together women all over the world, even the ones I haven’t meet yet, to let them know they are loved and (are welcome) to share their stories on this personal Zoom.”
In an unprecedented era whereby Zoom has become a customary global trend amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Brown has erected an intriguing, effective platform as a strategic way to broaden her horizon as a rising empowerment speaker.
A resourceful Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman, Brown has become destined to use her figurative podium during which to periodically address pertinent issues surrounding child and infant loss.
In October 1988, then-President Ronald Reagan declared October National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Generally, this month recognizes parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes.
As Brown explained, her platform has been in the works for some time. A native of Paris, Texas — a rural Lamar County establishment in Northeast Texas that is comprised of roughly 25,171, according to the latest U. S. census — Brown lost her daughter to an infant death in 2004.
“I want to bring to attention that women don’t have to suffer in silence,” Brown told MHN. “I lost my daughter at 17 months old to a heart defect that she was born with.”
SHE’S IN GOD’S ARMS
Brown’s daughter would have turned 17 years of age on July 29.
“This (up-and-coming platform) is to honor her,” Brown said of her newly-established empowerment speaking adventure. “It brings me joy to honor my daughter and other women.”
Although her new platform is in the infancy stages, amongst Brown’s strategic ambitions to expand her periodic Zoom sessions to reach women across the globe.
When asked who were amongst those who inspired her to move forward with her latest endeavor, Brown said: “Other women who have gone through the same experience. God put this on my heart a few years ago to do something to help and celebrate other women (and to help them) heal. I’m not a doctor, but I know that my story will help other women.”
A longtime entrepreneur who is self-employed, Brown is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration (with an emphasis in Entrepreneurship) from Southern New Hampshire University.
She is on schedule to graduate in 2021.
Brown attended PCI Health College in nearby Richardson, Texas where she graduated with a 4.0 grade point average while studying to become a Medical Assistant.
Interestingly, Brown, a mother of three, is a licensed traveling wedding officiant who have performed two wedding ceremonies in Dallas so far this year.
“I (enrolled in school) for four years, and what made me press forward in the medical field was my situation with my daughter,” Brown explained. “In my heart, I just wanted to help others but, unfortunately, that wasn’t my destiny career (path).”
All things considered, it seemed that delving off into entrepreneurship wound up being the most reasonable career option for Brown whom, along with her immeasurable gifts as an empowerment speaker, has become a certified representative for Total Life Changes.
Having officially gone into operations in 1999, Total Life Changes — or TLC as it is widely known — provides thousands of people around the world with the opportunity to build a brighter future, most notably by way of living and savoring a healthy lifestyle, as well as through the financial freedom and flexibility they seek.
“I sell weight loss detox tea and other products, and “I’m also working with others in investments to help them build generational wealth,” Brown said of her affiliation with TLC. “Looking at today, it seems as though families are at an all-time high with unemployment rates.”
Brown’s empowerment speaking venture will service individuals and groups of women ranging in ages 18-and-up, she said.
“I’m currently working to help myself and others build generational wealth,” Brown said. “This is way to help and empower other families. (I’m determined to) celebrate other women who have had a lost (a child/children) and remind them that their resilience is beautiful to me and that their healing comes daily.”
That, after all, is something by which she doesn’t merely take lightly.
