Founder, Rhonda Lewis-Nwosu’s road to motherhood was not easy. After she and Ral endured four miscarriages during the first nine years of marriage, a miracle happened.
Rhonda gave birth to perfectly healthy twin girls in March 2007. The birth of the Nwosus’ daughters was a
testament of faith, perseverance, knowledge, and expectation of God’s fulfilled promises.
Along with many biblical principles, Rhonda and her husband received double joy for their pain when they believed:
Isaiah 61:7 –
For your shame ye shall have double, and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.
Rhonda Lewis-Nwosu is a 21st Century woman of faith. Balancing work and family, she understands firsthand the perils that can hinder the path to parenthood. She lost her father when she was only a year old. Three years later, her mother committed suicide. She and her only brother were immediately placed in the care of her biological aunt and uncle. They legally adopted both children and along with their own children, nurtured them by providing a loving, stable Christian home. Her aunt often told Rhonda, “I can never replace your mother, but I will always love and mother you.” Those words were powerful in a young girl’s life, and set Rhonda on a course to later pursue her own destiny to become a mother herself.
During her journey to motherhood, Rhonda recognized the limited resources for women. She witnessed the lack of candid dialogue about their experiences of infertility, loss or delayed parenting. Rhonda felt compelled to break the silence. She wanted to give hope and support to women who have plans to become mothers. This desire to help other women led to the creation of Sparkles of Life, Inc. . She is a family building coach, speaker and power voice for infertility.
She manages the annual Mother’s Heart Conference and Brunch, to honor women who have struggled with infertility, miscarriages, delayed parenting and surrogacy.
Sparkles’ dynamic work was been endorsed as “Life Changing Support” by International Ministers Forum. She has received the “Pillar of Strength’’ award from the National Women of Achievement, “Pioneer” award from League of Business and Professional Women and served as a Goodwill Ambassador in Houston for the Freedom Foundation of Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria.
