This is why I joined!
The reason this Preachers Daughter joined Empower Network,
is because I was tired of all the gimmicks that I had tried and wanted
to have something to show for my future. I wanted something different.
I had a hard job working 5-6 days a weeks. All that heavy lifting was more then I could take at times. I needed a change! I wanted a change! Somehow I had to find a better way to live and survive.
I am a Indie artist
needing help in get people to know me and maybe find a connection with me but not just that, I want the world to know that I am ME. Not just someone who don’t count in this big wide world of ours. Being me was a hard lesson to learn as I was doing what I had to survive. I had been in the work force since I was 22 and never known any other job then the hard survival job I was in, other than music.
I was at my wits end
then one day I was introduced to Empower Network. I am a newbie to Empower Network. I want to make a difference in my life and as time goes on, I hope that you will want to get to know me and connect with me.
I hope that I will see you sometime in the future at one of the live events 2014. So, If you see me come up and introduce yourself. I would love to hear your story.
I am so excited!

Life Of a Preachers Daughter Blog-Faith In Yourself
I was watching a show last night called 20 Feet From Stardom.
It was about backup singers who had sung with the big stars out there.
Backup singers are the most Important thing when it comes to the entertainers out there.
They are just as important as the singer themselves.
Did you know that
99% of them are Preachers Daughters.
I am a Preachers daughter but was never like they were. The only difference between them and me, They had support from their parent. ME, not so much.
I am here to tell you,
it doesn’t matter what they say about your singing. If you think and know that you can sing, you should express your talents and never let anyone tell you that you can’t do it or that your not good enough.
I was one of the statics who was told, You aren’t as good as,,,,,,,,You’ll never be like,,,, You’ll never be better than,,,,, Came from a family member whom I think never had faith in me in the first place, made me doubt myself all these years. Being told you are, then you’ll never be as good as,,, or be like,, or better than,,, is the hardest thing to handle for someone growing up whom just wanted to sing on stage and get the notice that she so desperately needed and wanted. I wanted to be different then all those other singers out there. Yeah growing up I would sing in the Gospel realm but It turns out that it was only for the family.
I want to add,
even though I was in the Gospel realm, I never got to do what my heart so longed to do which was sing for millions. I was one of those girls who wanted to be there on that Grand “Ol Opry stage singing to you folks out there. Not getting to fulfill my heart of dreams makes me wonder how many young people out there whom have the talent and their parent holds them back from achieving what God wanted for their life. Maybe your not so young anymore and you do have the talent inside you. Never give up! It’s gonna be OK. Just keep the faith!
I was amazed how great of singers they are. I learned a lot and did a lot of soul searching. I am now looking forward to a better future and hope to sing for you all someday out there.
Just so you know,
I am loving everyday of my life and am not bitter any more toward that family member as it is not for me to judge. Only God is their judge. This is ONLY my Life Of a Preachers Daughter Story.
Thanks again for reading Life Of a Preachers Daughter Blog.
Peace be with you and may God keep his hand on you and my country.

Life Of a Preachers Daughter-My Blonde Moment
Have you heard of the saying, It’s The Bottle?
Well, here goes,
I went out to get into my car to go to the corner store to get my iced tea just like I do almost every morning,
I thought I was getting into the drivers seat, oh NO! not today folks!
I don’t know what I was thinking but instead of opening the drivers door to get in, I unlocked the passenger side door and stepped into My Blonde Moment. I actually got in,,, sat there for a second and then realized I was in the wrong seat to drive.
Just so you know,
I laughed so hard at myself for doing such a thing like that.
I will never forget that as long as I live.
Chalk it up to DUH! It’s the Blonde in me!
And THAT folks was My Blonde Moment for the day.
Have you ever had a Blonde Moment?
for reading my Life Of a Preachers Daughter Blog for today!
I used to be so insecure with the way I look and at times I would just hide myself from the world outside. I never wanted to show or tell anyone about the way I feel or felt but I now know that not talking about it only brings me to the realization that I couldn’t control it.
I think I have a handle on it but then
other days it’s like hitting a brick wall. I have tried so many things, gimmicks, diet pills to keep a handle on it. I even went as far as going to a diet place (I won’t say where) and payed ALOT of money, and in doing so I lost about 10 Pounds and then gained it all back and then some,,,,,
Looking back, on that time of my life and all the struggles that have come my way and continue to come my way, I will never give up on myself no matter what ales me. Doing all the gimmicks and other things, I never realized that I was doing it all wrong and giving my body injustice by going in the wrong directions. I don’t know how long it will take me to lose but I do know that the older I get the harder it is to lose the weight.
are in some form of the 75% as well and you think you are doing it right I applauded you for trying.
My number one rule in this life,
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!
I just wanted to share
with you how I’m feeling today in the LIfe Of a Preachers Daughter blog. This is only my thoughts and of my life.
I hope that however you are feeling today that you are happy and healthy.
God Bless and Peace be with you!
The day started off by me doing what I do almost every morning,
going to get me an iced Tea to get me going for the day. So I go outside and began to get into my car and looked down and found that my front tire on the drivers side was almost flat. You talk about Blah! That’s how I felt. Blah!
So I go to the closet place to get air for the tire and to my surprise,,,,
They wanted a dollar just to get air. I’m like REALLY? Just for air? Think of the cost of air that we breath,,, if we had to pay for it, how much would it be? Anyway, it being a Sunday you would think there was somewhere that I could go get it fixed in this Ocean town?
Well I was at my last wits end when,
I decided to use my G.P.S. I searched it and found a few places that maybe they would be open. So after calling all the places and not finding anything open on my list, I thought, W.W.G.D, Meaning (what would God do)?
I stopped the car and said a little prayer,
I sat for what seemed like 15 min. I decided to go down this little street, ‘lo and behold’ there was this little mom and pop tire shop whom had just opened up for the day!!! I couldn’t believe it! I’m like WOW!
I stopped and thanked God for his many blessings for showing me the way.The tire was fixed, and when receiving the bill, they told me the cost of fixing the tire with a total of $20.40. I thought to myself,, that’s OK with me because they were there for me when I needed them most. As I was walking out the door, they said, they hoped God would bless my day today! I said thanks,, you too and was out the door. I thought about what had just happened to me concerning the tire that I have so much to be thankful for.
Now that I am at home and have begun to write this blog and think back on it
I never mentioned to anyone about the morning I was having. I think it happened to me so I could tell my story and let you know what happens in the Life Of a Preachers Daughter. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring to you my Life Of a Preachers Daughter Blog for today.
Blessed are you, for taking the time to read my blogs.
May your day be filled with much happiness and love.
is one of the rising stars of Country Music, boasting a stage presence that exudes exceedingly high levels of energy, mirrored by genuine musical talent. The Indiana-born singer-songwriter’s musical journey encompasses all the makings of a true musical star, with her musical offerings underpinned by that characteristic raw singing/songwriting talent that has clearly been shaped by years of growth, experience and inspiration.
Lace can best be described as an indie artist
with a Gospel faith upbringing and this forms the basis of her unique musical style which has seen her evolve to incorporate the Country Music genre into her offerings. Lace’s musical talent was very evident from a very young age, when she informally kicked-off her singing career at the very delicate age of just three (3) years, singing in churches across the United States of America, under the tutelage of her father’s travails as a minister.
Having been raised in the Christian faith
and using her talents whenever and wherever the need arose, Lace did the hard yards in honing and refining her evolving musical talent, with singing becoming a concrete part of her way of life for many years. The establishment of her current, unique musical style, which encompasses both Country and Gospel, was sparked by her desire to grow musically in her late teens, when she began to write country music.
While Lace Tomus’ musical offerings
generally incorporate elements of Country and Gospel collectively,
the Country/Gospel singer continues to write for both Country and Gospel as separate genres of music. Suitably assigned to the top-tier of today’s female vocalists, Lace’s unique blend of premium vocal ability and songwriting prowess is second to none, responsible for some of the greatest albums of this era, which include the likes of Silent Night, My Mansion, Beyond Rainbows, I Told You So, White Tear Wine and Heart of a Country Girl.
Thank you for letting me share my talents and stories with you!
