Hey guys, welcome to my show page!
I am Kathy Hood, CEO of Marvelous Light Empowerment Association, and founder of award-winning program, Woman University.
I’ve worked corporate,
hospitality and even dabbled a little in the political arena. However, my most absolute favorite thing I
like to do is encourage people to live a victorious life, hence why we are

thing to do is grocery shopping and cooking but love to eat though (go
My journey to this place is miraculous one. I would have never thought that the road taken would have been my route. If God would have told or shown me that I would marry a drug addict, exist in a miserable 12 year marriage, almost be killed by my husband, forgive him, be the only one in his corner during his jail time, help him when he got out of jail, divorce and then remarry him, I probably would not be hosting this amazing podcast. I’ve discovered my gifts, matured in Christ, and am living in purpose – unleashing my power (aka gifts), encouraging, empowering, and equipping people to prosper.
Looking forward to encouraging you to KEEP SHINING!
