Born in Tampa, FL, Dr. Brenda Jefferson grew up sheltered, shy, and bound by an overwhelming spirit of fear. At the tender age of 25 years old, Dr. Jefferson was introduced to the world of ministry. Through an emotionally abusive childhood and a physically abusive first marriage, she began to transform as she saturated her mind with God’s Word. Through trials and tribulations, she evolved into a walking demonstration of boldness, as she began to speak the truth in love, setting individuals free through the power of the Word of God. 1 In Music e-met her for an interview for her fans.
