Q&A WITH DR. KELLY WHEELER

I recently had the opportunity to pick the brain of another phenomenal sister in Christ, Dr. Kelly Wheeler. As I embark upon my second interview with an amazing woman of God I’m reminded of just how faithful God is. What struck me most about this young lady is her heart for God. I didn’t even realize that God was perhaps drawing me to her because of her tragedy but more importantly her story of triumph. I’ve often said that when you take care of God’s business he’ll take care of you. I don’t know exactly why our paths crossed but I’m choosing to believe it’s wrapped in the tapestry of trauma that we both identify with and our ability to overcome and create something awesome despite it all. That is perhaps where our stories are most parallel. But regardless, i do believe that God’s name will be made great in the Earth because of our connection.

I think you’ll be blown away by what inspires her greatness. The Q&A session is below,  it is my prayer that it will not only bless you but will challenge you to be a better woman today than you were yesterday. Her strength and courage to endure some pretty insurmountable obstacles should make you look at life just a little bit different and give thanks to God no matter what. She has still managed to walk in the power and authority that God predestined her to walk in spite of it all.  That’s what makes her testimony so powerful.  Please enjoy.

QUESTION: (LOLITA) 
When you wake up first thing in the morning what excites you, gets you motivated to be the phenomenal woman that you are?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

When I wake up in the morning, I can feel the joy of the Lord. I am excited to be a woman made in His image, and it thrills my heart to feel His love. When you know you are loved, your identity is secure, and you can accomplish absolutely anything in life. Every day, His love motivates me to embrace joy and do what I am called to do. I can do anything with His strength!

 

QUESTION: (LOLITA)

Who/what has inspired your greatness? What impact has this person or thing made on your life as a whole?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

My greatest inspiration is my faith in Christ. Jesus has given me understanding of who I am as a woman, and this clear sense of identity fuels my life with vision and purpose to inspire people through teaching and writing.

 

QUESTION: (LOLITA)

You may or may not know that the tagline for the brand is “break the chain, challenge the status quo” so i must ask what chains/barriers have you broken in your life to get to where you are today?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

In my life, I have faced facial reconstruction, infertility, and loss – struggles that have challenged me to explore societal ideas of beauty, identity, womanhood, and purpose. My life has not been easy, and it has definitely been a road less traveled. There have been times when I believed that I was “not enough” based on society’s standard for women. However, I have learned to overcome this lie and charter my own course of what it means to be a unique woman loved by God who has a beautiful purpose in this world.

 

QUESTION: (LOLITA)

I’m assuming you’ve had to step outside the box (challenge the status quo) in some regards throughout your life. Please explain what makes you unique and different in how you present your gift to the world?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

My life is different than many women. I still carry the remnants of a genetic syndrome that impacts my hearing, vision, and other health-related issues. I do not have children due to infertility, and I have experienced a number of traumas and losses in my life. However, I do not define myself by the challenges I have faced. Rather, my uniqueness stems from who I am as a woman as a result of my faith and life experiences. I am an overcomer who lives life with courage and intentionality. Whether I am teaching or writing, I bring my own unique stories to my audience as tangible examples of how to embrace one’s God-given purpose and experience the goodness of God in every facet of life.

 

QUESTION: (LOLITA)

When you’re not on your grind, that is, working etc. what do you like to do you in your spare time?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking and birdwatching with my husband of 20 years! I love enjoying sunsets, reading a good book, and visiting beautiful places filled with God’s creation!

 

QUESTION: (LOLITA)

I’d love for you to share any uplifting books, quotes, scriptures, or any advice that you can with my audience. Anything you think might inspire them to greatness?

 

ANSWER: (KELLY)

One of my favorite scriptures is Psalm 16:11, “You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”

So many times we doubt ourselves as women. We believe lies that we are inadequate, and that we will never see good things happen in our lives. However, this scripture always reminds me that when I partner with the Lord, and I believe the truth of His Word, I will experience His beautiful path and promises for my life.

When you doubt yourself, remember that Jesus loves you, He is with you, and He has made you a masterpiece crafted in His image. The Holy Spirit will empower you with His sense of identity and purpose and lead you on an incredible path of destiny. With His help, there are no limits to what you can accomplish!
