“I am passionate about speaking the truth in love because truth is what makes people free. I long to see people be free to be and do what God intended.”
Lydia Clarke was born to a black Baptist mother and white European Jewish father. Because of her mixed-race heritage bullying and rejection were common occurrences throughout her childhood and young adulthood. The false identity that arose from this experience led her to believe she had no true purpose in life.
Like many others, she began seeking fulfillment in ways that could never provide it, and acceptance through people who would never fully give it. Nothing and no one made her feel whole. It was not until she surrendered her broken life to Christ, that she finally found “real” life.
Now, Lydia passionately dedicates herself to helping others discover who they are, their worth, and how and where they click. This allows them to walk in their purpose and find true fulfillment in various areas of their lives.
Lydia is a licensed minister, ICF-Certified Life Coach, and author. She has served as a leader and facilitator of various small groups for women and youth. In addition she developed and led and "Ideas, Dreams and Visions Incubator" for over a year through which participants followed through on long held, but put off, ideas, dreams and visions. The results were phenomenal! She's also helped bring transformation to the participants in conferences and workshops sponsored by her non-profit.
