Ceola J. the Encourger!

Encourage. Educate. Empower.


"Your past does not destroy your destiny!" A message Ceola shares every opportunity she has to speak. Having seen and experienced pain and trauma most of her childhood, Ceola found her purpose in supporting women and children. Ceola utilizes the victory she saw through overcoming her painful life experiences to help, encourage and motivate women. In doing so, Ceola believes she is empowering the children, who are our future, allowing them to see, believe in, and live their life's purpose!

A three-time survivor of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of those she trusted, surviving homelessness with her mother and siblings as a child, domestic violence, barrenness, suicidal thoughts, and more, she learned first-hand what it means to overcome!


Today, Ceola is proof there is life after trauma and supports women and children through her nonprofit, Dream2b. Ceola advocates against violence toward women, and is passionate about empowering women! Ceola J. encourages and inspires women to seek and reach their God-given purpose and live their best lives now! Ceola’s mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ that transformed and gave her life meaning with everyone she has the pleasure of meeting.
