Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur LaTambria Smith carries on her son’s memory through her thriving baking business


EDITOR’S NOTE: This story on Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman LaTambria Smith was originally published by Making Headline News on October 11, 2017. Since the release of this story, Smith, a Dallas Skyline High graduate, has announced that she will be releasing a book that will recall her assortment of emotional testimonies, as well as host an empowerment conference that will take place at a date to be announced. 

DALLAS — Back on February 8, one day before her 33rd birthday, LaTambria Smith staged to her Facebook page a rather descriptive and touching image that detailed a timeline of arguably the most challenging and tear-jerking moments of her young life.

For starters, Smith underwent surgery to have her cancer cells removed from her cervix in 2007.


DEFYING ALL ODDS 

SHE’S STILL STANDING — Dallas-area businesswoman LaTambria Smith is owner of Tam’s Sweet Treats And More, a professionally run DFW-based professional baking business in which Smith specializes in preparing a variety of delectable, mouth-watering desserts.

Approximately a year later, she had a pre-eclampsia, or an emergency C-Section performed, a procedure that gave way to her child being 25 weeks prematurely and weighing just one pound, six ounces.

Two years later, doctors removed cancer cells from her cervix only to have a similar procedure performed the following year.

Then in 2012, Smith had to have another emergency C-Section performed, during which she had given birth to her baby at 23 weeks, a child whom weighed 14 ounces.

THESE CAKES ARE LIT — A business Smith established approximately three years ago, Tam’s Sweet Treats And More is widely known for providing consumers with a variety of sweets, most notably cakes, teacakes, chocolate covered sweets and its famous cupcakes.

Consequently, things would become even more somber in the life of a young woman whose faith undoubtedly was on trial unlike never before.

That’s because later that year, doctors had discovered a softball-size tumor in Smith’s stomach during the C-section. Unfortunately, Smith’s baby passed away three weeks later after a month-and-a-half stay in the NICU. Consequently, she underwent successful surgery, during which she had the tumor removed.

Then in 2015, Smith was hit with more disheartening news when she got word that she had a leaking heart valve due to high blood pressure.

ALL OCCASIONS CAKES AND TREATS — You name it and chances are Smith — this professional baking guru — will hook you up regardless of the occasion.

As if those slew of obstacles weren’t enough to try Smith’s faith, she learned some time last year that the nerves behind both of her eyes were swollen twice their normal size, in large part because doctors discovered excessive fluid around her brain.

While such a heartbreaking sequence of events would bring even the strongest of persons to tears, Smith deemed it essential to end the timeline image with four words that, despite an assortment of potentially fatal occurrences, practically explains why she’s the blessed woman for whom she is widely known.


REMEMBERING AMARI 

In 2013, doctors had discovered a softball-size tumor in Smith’s stomach during the C-section.  Unfortunately, Smith’s baby passed away three weeks later after a month-and-a-half stay in the NICU. Consequently, she underwent successful surgery, during which she had the tumor removed.

“AND I’M STILL STANDING,” Smith staged to an image that was accompanied by three exclamation points.

All things considered and because of what she had to survive, Smith doesn’t shy away from the notion that while she’s yet breathing, she might as well live life to the fullest — while walking in purpose through entrepreneurship in the process.

“To me this is not only a business, but a passion,” Smith told Making Headline News.

TAM’S TEXAS TWO STEP

HER REASONS — All things considered and because of what she had to survive, Smith doesn’t shy away from the notion that while she’s yet breathing, she might as well live life to the fullest — while walking in purpose through entrepreneurship in the process. Pictured with Smith in a recent photo from the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis are her daughters: Amaiyah  Ross, 11 (left), and Mariah Ross, 10.

“I started in the kitchen with my grandmother as a child and learned as much as I could. I took all that knowledge and carried it over to my adult life. I first thought I would just do it for my girls, but the more I tried and accomplished, the more I pushed myself and here we are now.” — Dallas Entrepreneur LaTambria Smith


Talk about a dramatic comeback to ultimately start and manage a business amid a rash of agonizing setbacks.

“To have my girls watch and encourage me pushes me even more, because I know my passion and drive is a lesson for them as they grow,” Smith said while flashing her big, signature smile.

How befitting to put on display a well-deserved smile, this after having conquered and outlasted and defied arguably the greatest of odds time and time again.

Dallas/Fort Worth-area minister Prophetess Tangela Freeman defies an array of odds, establishes a flourishing ministry

“Then, after doing all those things, I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. (Joel 2:28 NLT)

 

MASSIVE LEAP OF FAITH — Having become baptized with the Holy Ghost at the tender age of 16, Prophetess Tangela Freeman consequently took the hedges and highways and byways when she began preaching and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ approximately two years later. A native of Dallas, Freeman is the Founder of Tangela Freeman Ministries, which is powered through her Devil I Changed My Mind Ministries.

DALLAS — During an exclusive earlier this week with Making Headline News, Tangela Freeman was asked to assess what was a memorable upbringing in the church.

Exhibiting a rather forthright countenance, Freeman wasted little time cutting straight to the point about a subject that, given her immeasurable faith walk with Almighty God, essentially sums up why she has evolved into the progressive, thriving woman of God for which she is widely known.

In a nutshell, she’s widely regarded as a trailblazer, one who’s accustomed to shaking a nation and impacting a generation — with God, her Helper, leading the way. 

“I was brought up under the Baptist umbrella, which was very traditional and religious,” Freeman recalled. “I would say I was in a cave because I was getting nurtured, but I wasn’t getting fed.”

For what it’s worth, that Freeman deemed it essential to fortify a sense of transparency while reminiscing about her training in the church has benefited her mightily throughout the years, particularly as it pertains to answering her God-mandated calling by erecting her own ministry.

A native of Dallas, Freeman is the Founder of Tangela Freeman Ministries, which is powered through her Devil I Changed My Mind Ministries.

Having become baptized with the Holy Ghost at the tender age of 16, Freeman consequently took the hedges, highways, and byways when she began preaching and spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ approximately two years later.

To her distinctly unique credit and because of the divine purpose for which God created her, it’s safe to assume that she’s been a woman after God’s own heart ever since.

“As a little girl, I felt the hand of God upon my life and I knew that He was going to use me,” Freeman said. “It wasn’t until the age of 16 when I transitioned into the Pentecostal Church that it was evident and clear that I was a Prophet.”

REMARKABLE KINGDOM RESUME — Credit the fact that Freeman hails from what she describes as three generations of Kingdom Ambassadors, Pastors, and Leaders and, following a three-year stint of intense Prophetic training and strategic development under the leadership of Dr. Juanita Bynum at “The Wearhouse” in Atlanta, it wasn’t thereafter that Freeman began to witness her ministry soar to immense heights.

As it turned out, she was right. And don’t think for one single solitary second that Freeman’s just blabbing and boasting about the ministry about which she presently dwells because, for the record, she has a life-altering, inspiring, tear-jerking testimony as valid proof.

Consider, for example, how it wasn’t until she had become spiritually imprisoned by a lifestyle that was comprised of heavy usage of marijuana, alcohol, ecstasy pills, raw (sex), stripping, lesbianism, not to mention a spirit of rebellion — all of which truth be told, had greatly thrust her into divine destiny.

Not to be outdone by a lifestyle that was mired by a slew of spiritual — and natural — roadblocks, it wasn’t until sometime in 2005 during which Freeman was in a nightclub that God had miraculously and strategically commissioned her to return to the fivefold (ministry) with power, accuracy, and demonstration, as she admittedly recalled like yesterday.

KEEPING IT 100 — For what it’s worth, that Freeman deemed it essential to fortify a sense of transparency when reminiscing about her training in the church has benefited her mightily throughout the years, particularly as it pertains to answering her God-mandated calling by erecting her own ministry.

All things considered and because of what she had to conquer and survive, she is widely regarded as Prophetess Tangela D. Freeman, in large part because of what many have described as her well sought after Apostolic and Prophetic voice.

Moreover, it is, by all accounts, because of her longstanding and prophetic ministry that she is afforded the golden opportunity to function as a mantle, of sorts, one who customarily teaches, preaches, activates, imparts spiritual wisdom and knowledge, all while advancing the kingdom in the process — the best way she know how.

“Her ultimate focus, plan, and purpose are to intercept and see a move of God in the Kingdom, in regions, in the nation, and in the utter most parts of the world,” said a spokesperson for Tangela Freeman Ministries. “Although gifted by God to serve in many other facets of ministry, her heart’s desire is to see the people of God loosed from bondage, tradition, religion, and introduced to a life of freedom and spirituality.”

GLOBAL IMPACT — A ministry that has been established on a solid and immeasurable foundation, Prophetess Freeman is steadily devising ways to advance what is shaping up to be an internationally-acclaimed organization, as evidenced by her recent and much-anticipated appearance on The Sherry Bronson International ROKU TV Show.

Credit the fact that Freeman hails from what she describes as three generations of Kingdom Ambassadors, Pastors, and Leaders. And, following a three-year stint of intense Prophetic training and strategic development under the leadership of Dr. Juanita Bynum at what is known as “The Wearhouse” in Atlanta, it wasn’t until shortly thereafter that Freeman began to witness her ministry soar to immense heights.

For starters, she had officially accepted her call as a Prophet. Then just last year, she was ordained and licensed by Overseer Debra Cotton as a legal Prophet, a notable development that only added credibility and accountability to her God-endorsed assignment.

STICKING WITH JESUS — To her distinctly unique credit and because of the divine purpose for which God created her, she’s been a woman after God’s own heart ever since she was a teenager.

The granddaughter of a Pastor, Prophetess Freeman is currently a member of  A Tree of Life Fellowship in nearby Arlington, Texas, a ministry whereby she serves as House Prophet under the leadership of Apostle Tony and Pastor LaSherrie Ervin and the covering of Prophet Jonathan and Lady Amanda Ferguson.

A ministry that has been organized on a solid and immeasurable foundation, Prophetess Freeman is steadily devising ways to advance what is shaping up to be an internationally-acclaimed organization, as evidenced by her recent and much-anticipated appearance on The Sherry Bronson International ROKU TV Show.

A segment that was staged on various message boards and social media sites, the footage has amassed more than 4,700 views.

LURING OTHERS TO CHRIST — “I’m out of the cave,” said Freeman, assessing the constant progression of her ministry. “Just like Joseph, those who put me in the pit had to cancel the funeral because when they came back to get me. I wasn’t where they left me. I’ve been mantled for the mandate.”

Interestingly, Freeman’s ministry is comprised of a Mentorship Program as well as a School of Intercession, Prophetic, Deliverance, Mantles, and Supernatural.

In addition, TFM includes what is known as the ME Network, a co-ed ministry that stands for: (Mary•Elizabeth•Elijah•Elisha)

Also, TFM conducts Life Coach Sessions, a Fire Zone Clarion Prayer Call that typically takes place once a week, and a service called “Fire Zone,” which is held once a month and, in 2018, Prophetess Freeman will be launching G. L. I. Y. — the acronym for Greatness Lies In You — which is a mentorship program for young girls ages 12 and older.

“I’m out of the cave,” said Freeman, assessing the constant progression of her ministry. “Just like Joseph, those who put me in the pit had to cancel the funeral because when they came back to get me. I wasn’t where they left me. I’ve been mantled for the mandate.”

In a nutshell, she’s only keeping it real.
