Raised in New Jersey, Tenishia currently resides in Georgia. She is the proud mother of one son (another preceded her in death) and a grandson. As a result of experiencing years of childhood sexual abuse, not being secure in her identity or knowing her life's purpose as well as other aspects that accompany the aforementioned, Tenishia made up her mind to change the trajectory of her life. Tenishia is an advocate for counseling and other healing ministries as it has helped her during her struggles. In addition, to counseling and healing ministries, Tenishia had the assistance of a Life Coach to help her navigate life circumstances.

Her book Arrested Development: A Journey to Discovering Identity and Purpose was penned and birthed during her healing process. Tenishia's heart behind her book is to provide a resource that gives insight and hope to those who are or have experienced childhood trauma, life challenges and/or lack of identity and purpose.

Her Motto is "Healing....it’s a whole journey, not a destination;" one that she is committed to going on with others.


A Journey to Discovering Identity and Purpose

So often, the problems or lack of feeling truly fulfilled in one's life stem from trauma that occurred at some point during childhood. This trauma could be anything from rejection, abandonment, sexual abuse and molestation to name a few. Hurts and trauma lead to the root issue of a lost sense of identity. A persons original God given and purposed identity was perverted due to the trauma experienced.  It is time to reclaim that identity in Christ! As a reminder of who you are, here is what the Bible says:

 In Genesis 1:26 (AMP) it declares that God said, ”Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness{not physical, but spiritual personality and moral likeness];and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.”

Throughout the pages of this book the author takes you on a journey of her experiences interspersed with the reality of who/what God has called and named you to be. the author has included  journal space and prayers in which to help work through reclaiming your identity.

Welcome to the journey to discover for the first time your identity for some, and the journey of rediscovery for others.

Buckle your seatbelt, this may be a bumpy but well worth it ride.

"Healing...it's a whole journey!"

Coach Tenishia B. Lester


Thank you for being obedient and not only answering the calling on your life but coming outside of your comfort zone to reach the unreachable. I know I gave you a hard time when you were only doing what you were led to do and that was to push me out of MY comfort zone. Because of your tenacity and determination not to give up on me but to continue to push and pray for me, I’ve been able to step into the next stage of my life by moving forward and relaunching my business. You provided me with the necessary tools to do so and I am forever grateful! Thank you again for not only sharing your story and dedicating time to help others.
