The Pruitte Twins

The Call to Be Bold

I should have known Friday would be a great day. 

During my personal Bible study time Proverbs 28:1 was brought to my attention: “The wicked flee though no one pursues, but the righteous are as bold as a lion.” And this was after a week of feeling God urging me to be bold in my prayers and to be more confident about my future.

a.k.a. The Pruitte Twins

Then I went to Cupcakes and Conversations, a ladies empowerment night hosted by inspirational speakers Marla and Marcia Pruitte, better known as The Pruitte Twins.  

The night was full of motivational talks by local women who true are movers and shakers in our city. Women who spoke at the event included  radio and TV personality Eunice Elliott, Robin Ato, owner of Gracie Grove Venue where the event was held, Kimberly Davis and TaShara King of Davis and King Consulting, public relations pro Chanda Temple and Kanisha Shamburger of Created to Win Enterprises LLC. 

All throughout the night the message I heard over and over was to simply be bold. 

Be bold enough to dream. I knew I’d love the Pruitte Twins as soon as they started talking because they mentioned that they are fans of vision boards. A vision board is a visual representation of your dreams and goals. I make a new vision board every year or so because I believe that, as Proverbs 29:18 states, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”  (more…)

Jane About Town: Cupcakes and Conversations

On Friday night you’ll find me with my business cards in one hand and a cupcake in the other. 

Think of Cupcakes and Conversations as a ladies night out for women looking to be empowered in their professional and personal lives.  The theme for this event is “reNew You: Renewing Your Mind For Your Purpose.” The panel discussion will cover a variety of topics including personal finance advice, beauty tips, and guidance on how to get the most out of life. 

One of the panelists for this Cupcakes and Conversations event is See Jane Write member Chanda Temple, who is director of public relations for the Birmingham Public Library. Alabama 13’s Eunice Elliot will be a speaker as well.  

The night will include food and drinks (and cupcakes, of course). Click here to learn more about this event and to purchase tickets.
