"Don't focus on the multitude that cares less about the difference that you are making in this world~focus on the faithful few who sees and appreciates the difference that you are making in this world!" (Yolanda Marshall)
"Stay encouraged! Stay motivated! Stay close to God!"
Yolanda Marshall, author, spiritual motivational speaker and an emerging leader who has accepted the call upon her life as an Evangelist. She learned of God at a young age, but she did not know the importance of establishing an intimate relationship with Him—until recent years. In her early adulthood she found herself succumbing to several abusive relationships that seemingly deluded her. She was a broken vessel searching for love in these relationships, but later realized that only God could offer her the Agape love that she truly desired.
She began to pray to Him about her healing and deliverance. He would answer and over a period of a few short years would catapult her into the realms of spiritual understanding and move her toward becoming whole. Through a chain of events she crossed paths with those who would be instrumental to her healing and deliverance. Yolanda believes that everything she went through was propelling her toward her purpose.
She was called into the ministry in 2007. God spoke to her spirit on June 27, 2007 at 7:45 a.m., “I delivered you, now you deliver them.” She remembers Him telling her to carry the mantle three times as His voice started to diminish. She knew she had to take His mandate seriously. Yolanda is an anointed woman of God and has a passion to bring healing and minister deliverance to the hurting girls and women who are hidden in the shadow of brokenness. Her mission is to spread the Word of God—reaching women all across the globe.
She believes that her commitment to serving God is by serving others. She also believes that one must have the heart of God in order to be a true servant. Yolanda speaks boldly as she has been used to minister at women's conferences and several church services. She has spoken to women at domestic violence shelters in Alabama and Georgia. She has also spoken at girl's detention centers across the state of Alabama. She follows God’s lead and says what He tells her to say. She has a gift of prophecy and is filled with the Holy Spirit.
Yolanda is a native of Birmingham, Alabama. She is the sixth of 13 siblings and the mother of two, Kiarra and Marvin. She holds a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from Faulkner University, a Masters Degree in Management from Troy University and a Masters Degree in Accounting from Strayer University.
