is the founder of Mother’s Day, Incorporated. The vision
for Mother’s Day, Inc. was given to her on March 23, 2002
while experiencing the challenges of being a first-time mother.
After listening to concerns from other mothers who were experiencing
the same, she was inspired to begin Mother’s Day, Inc. This
vision has expanded and Mother’s Day, Inc. continues to
be a strong support system for mothers at Word of God Church &
Ministries and the community. At the beginning of 2012,
the Lord led Lady Davis to change the name of Mother's Day,
Inc. to M.O.M. which stands for Mothers on a Mission. The name
was changed due to the urgent needs of Mothers in the church and community and
the increased missions required to minister to those needs.
She is also
developer and host of Word of God Church & Ministries women's conference,
The Submitted Woman
Lady Davis was appointed to lead our Women's Ministry, T.I.T.U.S
(Transforming Issues Through United Sisterhood) because of her love and concern
for the healing, growth, and empowerment of women. Coupled with
this vision is S.I.S.T.E.R.S. (Sisters In Spiritual Transition
Empowered for Righteousness Sake), which was the theme for the
first T.I.T.U.S. Women's Conference. This leg of the ministry
will focus on teaching women the importance of becoming and
remaining their“sister’s keeper”.
Among her many accomplishments, Lady Davis believes her true calling
and, primary purpose, is to be a support to her husband in ministry
and to raise her children by living a Godly life before them.
