Whose Shoes Celebrates 5 Years!

Julian B. Kiganda and Christine K. St. Vil are two sisters known for being Bold & Fearless Moms ‘N Charge. After conquering their own personal and professional struggles to finally walk in their purpose, they’re giving you their most powerful insights to move you along your own path to uncovering your God-given purpose. In Whose Shoes Are You Wearing?, these no-nonsense siblings take you through key steps to help you create the unprecedented transformation you want to see in your own life. They draw upon their own life-changing experiences—from ending unhealthy relationships to surviving unimaginable trauma—which are closely intertwined with their East African upbringing. With practical action steps included at the end of each chapter, Whose Shoes shows you how to walk boldly and fearlessly in your own shoes regardless of the shoes you’ve been wearing.

Enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres and come ready to have fun, mingle, and maybe even bust a dance move or two. We might just throw in a surprise, but you'll have to be there to receive it. 

Every guest will receive a special gift and an opportunity to purchase the BRAND NEW audibook version of our life-changing book Whose Shoes Are You Wearing? 


As a movement that was created to help women discover and walk in their own shoes, we’re excited to partner with Gina Paige, co-Founder of African Ancestry to do a special DNA reveal of the ethnic heritage of Markette Shephard, Emmy award-winning TV host of CBS’ affiliate Great Day Washington.

 Markette Sheppard is an Emmy award-winning TV host and the bestselling author of What Is Light?, a children’s picture book. She has been featured on NBC’s Today Show and ABC’s Live with Kelly, in Essence magazine and over the airwaves of NPR. She earned her bachelor’s degree from California State University, Dominguez Hills, and a master’s degree in interactive journalism from American University. 

As the leading Black female authority on DNA-based ancestry tracing, Gina Paige is a highly sought-after public speaker and presenter among African-American organizations and allied groups. Whether it’s as keynote speaker, moderator, panelist or emcee, Paige’s passion-infused, style captures, educates and uplifts audiences and in many cases, transforms the way people see themselves across globally.

For over 20 years Temika Moore has been performing live and writing music with inspiring and empowering messages. Temika’s approach to live performances is the Keynote Concerts format which blends her original music with inspirational and motivational messages. Her stylistic approach to music is categorized as “Inspirational Soul. Inspirational Soul is organic,” Temika explains. “This music is built on the premise of vocal, instrumental, and lyrical freedom undergirded by spiritual truth. A self-proclaimed genre bender, Temika’s performances are unique reflections of the vastness of her  musical pallete. Temika Moore can take you on a musical pilgrimage while telling stories of loss, faith, and triumph. Temika has performed and spoken at international events for schools, colleges, correctional institutions, associations, faith-based organizations, conferences, and more.

Mission Trip to Zambia

I need your support for my first mission Trip To Zambia June 1-11, 2018 with Meant 2 Live Foundation in support of providing resources and help for under-served communities. I'll be using my musical background to help orphans in Zambia. Please consider giving toward my fundraising goal. I am working toward raising $3,000 which will cover my travel and lodging expenses, and also include tools and resources for the community in which I'll be serving. Donate

So why Africa?

+1.6 million Orphans in Zambia, the highest per capita in the world
+68% of rural and 32% of urban orphans in Zambia are not enrolled in school
+In Lusaka, 75,000 children are living on the street
+Nearly two-thirds (63%) of Zambians receive less than $1 dollar a day
+Every 60 seconds, 14 children die of hunger related causes
+Each day, 6,500 people die in Africa from preventable diseases
+This is where the poorest of the poor live
+And they were meant to live also

For just $1.17 per day, you can save a life! In Zambia, your pocket change goes a long way. It can provide the basic needs for one a child such as food, clothing, medical assistance, books, school uniforms, and more importantly a quality education which can lift them from poverty. Just imagine if you gathered your friends and family members together, you could literally save an entire community. It can be done. Together we can make it happen. We truly hope that you can care for 1 child. Through your sponsorship, 2 lives will be changed: yours and that of the child. Now you can finally be the change that you always wanted to see in the world! I appreciate your support. Donate
