About Ms Sawyer
Brenda Sawyer was born and raised in New York City and currently resides in Philadelphia. She has a strong spiritual foundation and acknowledges that God is the head and strength of her life and without Him she could do nothing. As a young child, Ms. Sawyer always had a passion for teaching and imparting her knowledge to others. She set high standards for becoming the best teacher she could be. After graduating from Hunter College with a dual major in Psychology and Early Childhood Education, she taught elementary school for about twenty-six years for the School District of Philadelphia. Ms. Sawyer currently holds a second Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Cabrini College.
Seeing how the school system had changed over the years, Ms. Sawyer decided to retire from teaching. She started her own organization as the Founder and Director of GIRLS WALKING WITH INTEGRITY EMPOWERING FOR DESTINY (GWWI), a Christian mentoring program for young ladies between the ages of eight and eighteen. This organization allows Ms. Sawyer to give back to the community, by holding workshops to empower the young ladies to become all that God has called them to be, through prayer, Bible study, community service and various outreach ministries. Ms. Sawyer heads the workshops by incorporating a coalition of parents and community leaders to be positive role models for the girls to reach their destiny for posterity.
Becoming inspired by GIRLS WALKING WITH INTEGRITY EMPOWERING FOR DESTINY (GWWI), Ms. Sawyer wrote and published her first book, Encouraging Words For The Mind, Spirit And Soul, available on Amazon amzn.com/1514630222
Encouraging Words For The Mind, Spirit And Soul is a book of devotions which will not only uplift your spirits, but will also inspire and encourage your daily walk with Christ to give you His peace that passes all understanding.
Ms. Sawyer is one who believes that life does not have to stop after retirement, because everyday that God allows you to see is a brand new day of opportunities to accomplish new things. Ms. Sawyer encourages everyone to set goals, pursue them and follow their dreams and passions.
