My name is Tabitha Williams. I am a 33yrs old. I am in an overall much better state now, than I have been in years. Please allow me to attest to you. My True Journey to Financial Freedom, began earlier this year. Let me tell you how blessed I am. I begin taking Sis. Dena Crecy's Financial Freedom Class at the end of February, beginning of March 2015.
At first, I was a bit skeptical, because I normally keep my business and financial matters private. Sis. Dena made me feel "right at home", I was comfortable enough to state some major instances going on in my life, which definitely needed some guidance, and direction. She promotes you to open up, amongst other's while effectively listening to the helpful literacy she promotes. I entered this class with debt "over my head". It was very clear that I needed some help. I needed the knowledge to obtain the power to attack the enemy and gain my Financial Freedom back! I started to work on an emergency fund. Putting back a few dollars here or there, has helped me greatly. Listing all my family's expenses in black and white, definitely allowed me to see the unnecessary pattern I had been burdened with for a long period of time. I was making hasty decisions, operating without a plan.
Sis. Dena's class help me to re-group my thought process, and to realize what was hindering me to become financially free. "I am a Just Steward of the things God gives me". I have since then decreased my unnecessary spending and increased my income. I have money in my savings account, and I have also purchased a new car.(With a very good rate). I could not have done this without confronting my credit issues and paying off past debts. My Financial Freedom Class gave me additional knowledge in strengthening my family and staying physically fit. Staying grounded in Mind, Body, and Spirit. I am so grateful to being had the honor to obtain this information. I can honestly say, this class has built a better me. I am grateful, No longer bound, No chains holding Me!
Dena is a loyal and supportive friend. She is an encourager and believes that she should add value wherever she goes.
Dena & Jeannette
Dena is the daughter of Wyncie and William Thompson, both deceased. As parents were divorced, Dena was raised by her mother. Her mother got to experience two of her four grandchildren, boys, Eric and Sean, before she passed away in 1987. She told Dena she would have a daughter that would be just like her. Thus, here came Sydney in 1991.
Dena has one sister and two brothers. Her next to the oldest brother, Gilbert, passed away in 2005. Her sister Pat and brother Arthur, both live in Houston.
Dena has two adult children, Sean, and Sydney. They both reside in the DFW area. Sydney has two boys, and they are granny's pride and joy. Yes, I let them call me granny. I called my grandmother granny and do not have issue with them calling me granny.
Dena is first and foremost a woman of God. She accepted Christ at the age of 24 and has not looked back. Her relationship with Christ has brought her through some life challenges: A 15-year marriage that included a seven-year separation before divorce; homelessness, the sudden loss of her mother, and healing from a chronic illness.
Dena has been coaching people since the 1980's. She received her certification as a Life Purpose Coach (LPC) in 2008 through Life Purpose Coaching Centers International, a under Dr. Katie Brazelton. This company is a Triple-Board-Certified School of Christian Coach Education for Strategic Equipping of Influencers.
In 2016 she received certification as a Professional Life Purpose Coach (PLPC) with the same organization.
The relationship areas God uses her the most are male/female (single or married), parenting, career, and finances. She has authored two books, one about her financial freedom journey and the 2nd one about being single, married, separated, divorced, and single again. God has also used her to speak at conferences, retreats, and workshops. She would love to come and share at your next event.

2017-2018 Women in Ministry Leadership Class
Graduation June 3, 2018
Spring 2015 Discovery of Purpose graduating class.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed,"
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
"If love were just an emotion, then God couldn't command it. But love is something you do. It can produce emotion, but love is an action. The Bible says, “Let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions”
I John 3:18
"What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you."
"But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth."
“Truly, truly, I say to you, whosoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.”
"For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery."
"During Springtime of 2015, I attended the Discovery of Purpose class with
Dena Crecy, and I was blessed to become a part of the movement that God
envisioned her to have. I have experienced so much from this class that it
helped me place my life in a greater perspective. From learning how to
budget my finances to saving money, learning how to brand myself for a
desired job, and knowing most gifts that God has given me to personally
reach others.Most importantly, this class helps build a greater relationship
with the Creator. This class is needed in the communities to help keep lives
well balanced in all areas of life and that is what this Discovery of Purpose
class has personally done for me and my family."
