Jondrea Nicole


“In my own youth, I had some difficult challenges. It’s when given an opportunity to share those past childhood experiences vs my present way of life with young ladies across the world, as a lamp for their feet and as a torch for the path they are traveling through. To keep these young ladies inspired, help them to make better choices and to achieve their full potential.”

Jondrea Nicole lived in Southeast Texas where she earned mastery in the area of TAAS for writing proficiency as a student at Jasper High School. She is a follower of Jesus, native of Louisiana, court appointed special advocate, “at-risk” youth speaker, and graduate of Louisiana State University at Alexandria. Her book, “Breath of Liberty” explores triumph, perseverance, failures, heartache, relationships and love. Composed of poetry, prose, short stories and quotes; it is her first literary art form and merely an appetizer of written works to follow. Jondrea Nicole currently resides with her family in the heart of Louisiana.

Collette Conner

Collette Conner, I  am a native Houstonian, a parent of three sons who I have raised in excellence. Two of which are college graduates with the younger one just setting out on his road to college success. So you can say I have been there and done that. I believe that if single parents can harness some of the key strategies they used in raising their kids and transfer those same key principles into helping themselves launch their own destiny.

I am a Mentor, Motivator, Coach and soon to be Author who thrives on encouraging single parents to overcome their obstacles and jump past their pain into purpose. Often times it is difficult for single parents to switch from being focused on pushing their children to be a success to being pushed to be a success themselves. We give so much out  that sometimes it feels like we have nothing left to dream for. This is why I am so  passionate about the plight of the single parent and their ability to thrive and not just survive after they have raised their kids.
