Minister Celeste was born and reared in Hamtramck, Michigan, and has one son, LaMont, who is the joy of her life. Receiving her degree in Paralegal Studies from Macomb Community College in 2002, Minister Celeste is currently attending Birmingham Bible Institute, matriculating toward her Bible degree.
The Lord first anointed Minister Celeste musically, at age 3, and she obtained her foundations at The Historic Little Rock Baptist Church (Dr. Jim Holley, Pastor). After years of serving musically, the Lord anointed her for a higher calling where she was licensed and ordained to preach the gospel by Dr. James L. Morman of the Christian Tabernacle Church (Southfield, MI). She currently serves as Musician and Assistant to the Pastor at the Williams Chapel Missionary Baptist Church (Rev. James C. Jones, Pastor).
The "Sister Girl..." Series was motivated by the calling that God has on Minister Celestes life - to help and encourage women and girls. As her desire to write a book has come to fruition by the grace of God alone, Minister Celeste is committed to carrying out His purpose. As Co-Founder and Co-Director of The S.I.S.T.A.H.S. Ministry (www.thesistahsministry.org), Assistant to the Pastor at Williams Chapel Baptist Church in Detroit, Michigan, and now author, Minister Celeste is a woman on a mission for God.
