Leontine Osuagwu, Founder Liberating Tamar Inc on Trusting God, Accepting Myself And Rising: I birthed this ministry out of my own struggles with rejection, low self-esteem, anger and self-hatred after being sexually and emotionally abused. My heart was filled with anger, insecurity, rejection and feelings of worthlessness which led to depression and an overwhelming and an unhealthy desire to please everyone around me. These emotional issues were threatening to destroy my relationships, my career and my health and my destiny but God revealed himself to me as a deliverer, a healer, a counselor and a comforter. I am delighted to share my story of victory with women around the world. The name “Liberating Tamar” is inspired by the story of Tamar in the bible in 2 Samuel Chapter 13. Tamar was King David’s daughter. David was the second king of Israel. King David had eight wives and multiple concubines (book of chronicles). He had 19 sons and Tamar was his only daughter.

Teen parenting was a weight on Carmella’s shoulders that forced her to grow up overnight. Without any direction from her parents, she dropped out of high school in the 11th grade so that she could raise her child as a full time mother. Carmella ran into numerous roadblocks while trying to find housing, substantial finances, childcare, and education but made it a priority to provide the best possible life for her and her son during the time. Her primary goal now is to help teens and young parents understand the importance of family values and how to ensure a determined, committed and successful lifestyle.
