Trailblazer Toy James

Toy, a native of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, is a devoted mother to her beloved sons, a designer, entrepreneur, inspirational speaker, author, philanthropist, and mental wellness advocate. Toy’s the Founder and CEO of Inspirations Enterprises, LLC, home of Inspirations for Women Network, Inspirations Gifts and Baskets and a myriad of subsidiaries that exists to equip, edify, and empower people to be healed and live purposefully. Additionally, she is the Founder and Executive Director of Inspirations for Women, Inc., a non-profit organization with a mission to heal and inspire women and their families to live on purpose.

Her devotion to serve as an inspiration was birthed after enduring and overcoming her battle with depression and suicidal behaviors. Today, Ms. James is a fighter who is determined to encourage others to fight for their lives regardless of life’s circumstances.

Toy’s message of hope and purposeful living can be seen in her product line, writings, events, such as PJ’s & Purpose ® and LIVE! Beyond the Pain! Gala and her books, the Her Story HIS Glory anthology series.

Ms. James’ inspiration and success in her life and ministry is attributed to her stance on the Word of God. She particularly favors Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) which states, “for I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,” and Romans 8:18 (NKJV) where we’re told, “…that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” These scriptures assure her that God’s plan for her life is greater than any pain she may experience.
