Growing up in a very, humble environment, my father, an American immigrant, left everything behind when he made a life threatening decision to escape Cuba on a raft. He reminded us to be grateful for the little things such as: clean water, good health, and food on the table. He was a pastor with a true servant's heart, and love for others-
a trait which my parents instilled in me.
I have had the joy of sharing the past 12 years with my “Mr. Wyoming,” Sean Pruitt. In marrying Sean, I gained a beautiful daughter. Together we’ve had three amazing children, and we’ve also adopted two gorgeous girls, proudly making us a family of EIGHT!
Having been married for over a decade, we've learned a thing or two and have endured our share of obstacles. Now we are blessed to walk along side couples, counseling them in the power of unconditional love.
I consider myself privileged to have been born in this amazing country, a gift I do not take for granted. It is that gift, my love for my relatives in Cuba, combined with my passion and love for children-that inspired my husband and I to build three orphanages in Honduras, partnering with Impact Ministries International.
As a public speaker and minister, I have the opportunity to travel the all over the US speaking, teaching and empowering others. Ive also been blessed to be bi-lingual, and that has enabled me to speak to those in the Spanish community, as well as in other countries.
You may notice my hair length changes quite regularly...After loosing serveral family and friends to Cancer, I began donating my hair every two years. I know its not much, but in doing so, I get to teach my kids about sacrifice and the joy it brings to give to others.
Since my husband is the owner and operator of Kingdom Exploration LLC, and we are a homeschooling family. We are very fortunate to have the ability to live anywhere.
Four years ago, we chose to make that move, leaving all our friends, family, and everything behind. In hopes to change the suicide rate in the-then suicide capital.
We enjoy spending our time serving our local community and others globally. We feel that experiencing life first-hand is the best way for our children to learn. "Choose love" is something we have devoted our lives to and live by. It is not only my "platform" but my family’s mission; we want to be a living example to our children.
As it’s been said before, “The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
To make an impact in the world by serving, teaching, and inspiring others - How love, in its truest form, is patient, kind and selfless. This kind of love can transform a marriage, a family, a baby, an individual, an animal, even a bully's life and can stop the abandonments of babies. So choose love.
We believe serving is loving, and any sevice, big or small, can make an impact. You may not be able to change a person, BUT you can be the reason they choose to change!
As the Global Ambassador and international spokesperson for Safe Haven Baby Boxes, I am in charge of all international affairs, every email, phone call, ANYTHING to do with planting baby boxes internationally. Working to rescue newborn babies from abandonment.
Im also advocating and promoting as the spokesperson for Safe Haven Alliance.
The Safe Haven Laws are in all 50 states, we work to support state efforts to prevent the abandonments of newborns through Safe Haven relinquishments.
In 2008, my huband and I built three orphanages in Honduras, (a dream come true for the two of us) partnering with Impact MInistries International.
Through my partnerships with Impact Ministries International and Safe Haven, I work to expand my education efforts into international borders, working towards planting baby boxes in all our 55 Impact Ministries Intl. orphanages, in 15 different countries.
Our dream is to stop the current "gendercide" of 200 million deaths of baby girls in Asia.
In 2012 We relocated our family to a small town, where there is no mall, skating rink, bowling alley or any type of rec center...That was a HUGE culture shock for my family having come from Dallas.
Our goal and mission was to help with the suicide rate (The-then suicide capital in the US). We decided to start by giving our local kids an opportunity to have a safe, nurturing environment, and began a weekly youth group that we feed and entertain, personally covering one-hundred percent of the cost.
This has opened the door for us to mentor youth who have either attempted, or contemplated suicide. My husband and I became suicide prevention, QPR and ASSIST trained. A training which, has unfortunately, come in handy.
Im glad to say Wyoming is no longer in the #1 spot for suicides, and neither is our county! Wyoming is now in the #4 spot, that is a huge improvement! All glory goes to God.
This "mission" has led us to develop the goal of unifying the community in building a recreational center. A place where kids can feel safe, accepted, and have a sense of belonging.
Mentoring young women is an everyday "opportunity" for me whether its through the youth group, or through Our Life's Song Ministry. I've been blessed with everyday opportunities to encourage and develop young girls’ skills as leaders.
As a part of Ourlifesongs.com, a non-profit organization, we minister, encourage and inspire women. Through the website we reach over 46 different countries, empowering women through our own personal trials and "life songs". Our team travels to women's conferences
throughout the US speaking, and uplifting woman. Also serving as the "glam squad". Using our talents to give back to others with free mini-makeovers, teaching them that true beauty comes from within.
Seeing the girls I’ve worked with achieve their goals gives me so much joy and makes me very proud and hopeful for the beautiful and intelligent women they’re certain to become.
