If we haven't met yet, my name is Angela Aja.
I had the perfect life. I grew up in the ministry with my parents. My dad was a pastor. Serving others was a lifestyle. I knew that I had a call on my life to help people since I was in the 3rd grade. That call directed me. I told God that I would be happy to be single, serving as a missionary on the other side of the world for the rest of my life but, I went to Bible College, met a fiery young preacher and that changed everything…and together we had a thriving ministry for almost 25 years.
After 25 years of marriage and the ministry, my life got turned upside down. I went from “1st Lady of the Church” to “divorced, single mom” I went from speaking in the pulpit to selling windows door-to-door. I went from living in a beautiful ranch to sleeping on the floor in an apartment with my kids and wearing a Rolex with diamonds to standing in the food stamp line.
I realized that I could turn my tragedies into triumphs, my mess into my message and use my story to bring God glory.
