ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Omokorede is a passionate and anointed teacher of the Word, an ILO certified trainer, writer, speaker, and personal discovery coach. She has close to 20 years’ experience as a professional trainer in various capacities and at different levels, most especially in the areas of personal discovery, self-development, and entrepreneurship.
She is the founder and coordinator of the Women of Essence Foundation- a non-profit organization which she established about nine years ago in Lagos, Nigeria. This foundation was born out of her personal experience, which she refers to as her “wilderness season,” when she battled with near depression and low self-esteem, all in the search for purpose and relevance. The organization has the mission to help women discover, pursue, and fulfil their God ordained purpose, through training, counseling, mentoring and empowerment of women and young ladies.
In 2019, she started the Mary Group - a weekly online Bible study & prayer group - for women from various nations and across diverse backgrounds. Through the Mary Group, she teaches and mentors women who are eager to have a deeper relationship with God, as recorded in Luke 10:42.
She is an ordained assistant pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, where she and her husband have been serving for over 20 years. Omokorede is happily married to Ayotunde her husband of 27 years, and they are blessed with what she refers to as two generations of wonderful children.
