Hello, I am Tonita Smith and I was born and raised in St. Louis, Mo. by my grandmother who had a total of 11 children. My mother passed away when she was 16 years old; I was only 2. I was forced to grow up fast, and became very independent.
As a teenager, I dated a drug dealer and soon fell in love with material things, fashion and the bling. I had 3 sons by the time I was 22 years old and was married and divorced 2 times by age 35. I was quick to speak and slow to listen. I was known for my slick mouth and rebellious ways; I was a very "Foolish Woman."
After the second failed marriage I took time to heal and to develop a closer relationship with the Lord. I graduated from Nursing School with a Bachelor's of Science Degree as a Registered Nurse. I am now married for the third and last time which I consider to be a blessing. I vow to get it right this time. This is my first real marriage; happy, healthy, and whole. I went on to complete a Master's Degree as a Nurse Educator.
I am the co-owner of Fashion Remix Boutique
, an online boutique which specializes in statement jewelry. I am the proud author of her book, "The Power of Shut-up Grace." I no longer consider myself to be a "Foolish Woman." I now enjoy helping women to be better and to live whole while practicing shut-up grace. I am walking in my purpose by inspiring, motivating, and empowering other women through speaking engagements, workshops, and seminars.
I am Tonita Smith, Mentor, Entrepreneur, Motivational Speaker, and Author.
