Hi, I'm Monica!
I'm a radio host, author, Grammy-nominated vocal artist, musician, Christian political and business consulant - did I forget anything? - oh, yes, widowed mother of one amazing daughter.
That's me - Monica Matthews. There's only one of me. (Glory!)
I believe communication is key. So I engage in candid conversations about faith, life and politics.
Why? Because I can.
My friends would use one word to describe me: Honest.
I keep it real for one reason - FREEDOM. It's too important to do anything but defend it with Truth.
I am confident of my expertise in one thing: my life.
I'm not afraid to apologize when I'm wrong, but ... just so you know, that's about as rare as a sasquatch sighting. (See? Sassy.)
A little more of my story ..
A widow to ALS since 1999, I'm a single mother to one college junior and owner of one POM puff named Bella.
I'm the daughter of a German mother and Greek father (hence my eclectic music genres).
I'm also the daughter of the most High God and fiancee' to Jesus Christ.
After six years in ministry, there's pretty much nothing I haven't heard or seen. Nothing
Serving as campaign manager, speech writer, and minister - coupled with the struggles of single motherhood - have taught me more about life than a free Bernie Sanders Socialist education ever could.
And it's from all this LIFE that I speak, share, care, and seek to help YOU connect the dots.
I've got a lot to say and God said: Speak, Girl!
So you can hear me speak on "The Monica Matthews Show" on WSB Radio Atlanta - - and you can book me to speak at your next corporate conference, Christian women's event, political meeting, or singles retreat - - just call Stacy at The Robinson Agency (1.800.782.2995). She'll make sure you have all the info you need and will give you a quick answer if you have a particular date in mind for me to speak at your upcoming event.
I've been nominated for a Grammy and serve on the legislative committee for the Georgia Music Partners.
My latest album, Windows, will inspire and refresh you on your spiritual journey.
I single in multiple languages and genres and will probably sing the national anthem in my grave. Seriously. I have been blessed to sing our nation's anthem for many sports and political audiences along with our military for myriad functions. It is my honor as a citizen of this liberty-loving nation to represent her with my vocal gift.
These days I'm super excited about my first book When Jesus Isn't Enough: The Ultimate Meal For The Starving Single Woman and I am enjoying sharing this message at conferences nationwide.
In it I chronicle my life as a single Christian chick. It's juicy, it's honest, it's me.
It's the story of all my ridiculous choices and of God's faithfulness in staying married to the backslider - just as He promised.
It's a call to single women - and all women - to LIVE well and NOW.
