With a passion for success these women represent the CEO’s of nonprofit organizations, ministry, corporations, authors, and small businesses. These women are audacious, well educated, and God centered women. Renee felt these particular women amazing stories required broadening locally, nationally, and global level to express their worth and value. Renee has been called a modern-day Harriet Tubman. Her ambition is to bring forth the outcast, orphans, mentally enslaved, and forgotten ones to a platform God placed on the inside of them.

My name is Adrienne Leary. I’m the founder of Butterfly Blossom, it is a ministry that is gear towards restoring broken relationships amongst mothers and daughters and families.Our vision is to reach women who are facing brokenness from relationships, suffering from the hurt of their past, and helping with bitterness and anger through our life experience with our family. I started this ministry after being given the opportunity to lead a mother’s and daughters retreat, we saw an abundance of support and donations from the women that were excited about the retreat. Following that experience I witnessed there was a lot of hearts that needed to be mended by every attendee that shared from a place of hurt. In the process God restored their relationship and there wasn’t one dry eye in the room. I too had an experience with my mother that God allowed us though her sickness of breast cancer to have a relationship of healing during her time on earth before she transition to heaven in 2012,because of that restoration it then lead me to a new profound appreciation wanting to restoring my relationship with my daughters that left me speechless in wanting a deeper desire in seeing restoration in relationship happen for others. That is why I was inspired to host a mother and daughter luncheon that is held every year before Mother’s Day so we can fellowship with each other. Following the luncheon there has been an excitement as we work on building newness, also developing a respect for daughters and mothers. So that we Understand the importance of restoring healthy communication that allows us to know the relationship and have better balance in our everyday life changes. Since starting the luncheon we have gotten testimonials of restoration and how it has been impactful to the women’s and even to point that mothers and daughters share their concerns about their weren’t any communicating on both end, but before ending the luncheon we do a alter call for prayer which allows you have conversation with God, after sharing in prayer relationships have been reconciled, as an intercessor I’m constantly praying for restoration of families. As a result of my consistent prayer life I’m constantly being called on to pray for others. I don’t take it lightly when I’m called to be a vessel used for the kingdom. I’m passionate about staying connected and building a legacy for my family to have.
