About the author
For the last 30 years, Erika has had a successful career in the Beauty Industry. She started as a Nail Tech and quickly graduated as a Licensed Esthetician/Make-up Artist working in many of Dallas's most prestigious salons and spas. She was also fortunate to work as a professional Make-up Artist in the TV and film industry and with top Plastic Surgeons. Erika then evolved to Permanent Make-up as well as being a sought-after instructor for over 25 years. Then one day, she just knew God wanted her to focus on "the lessons" that HE had been teaching her. He wanted to use those experiences of her painful marriage and post-divorce to encourage and help others.
In 2016, Erika started her ministry, Amazing Grace Retreats in the Black Hills of South Dakota. She has had retreats twice a year since then ministering to women a place to rest, relax, discover, forgive, heal, and fellowship. It is her desire to help others find clarity, overcome struggles, and discover their true calling in life.
As her ministry grew by faith, she was encouraged to "think bigger" and choose a larger venue for the retreats. After many visits to Allaso Ranch in Hawkins, Texas, she knew this was the place to host the next retreat! Mothers' Day weekend 2022 was the Inaugural Kick-off and was a huge success! Erika and her team are planning the Mothers' Day Weekend Retreat to be an Annual Event! So, mark your calendars and get registered today!
You can also find Erika on the 2nd season of her podcast, Amazing Grace Talk. Take a listen, you will be encouraged!
It is her prayer that as you are guided through this book, YOU will encounter God like never before!
