DEAR QUEENS was founded in 2015 to build community for beginning Christian women of color. Since its founding, DEAR QUEENS has undergone many iterations—transforming from an empowerment blog to a brand that encourages, promotes, and provides spiritual practicality and self-discovery.

Dedicated to inspiring women toward healthy decision-making through self-discovery and spiritual development, DEAR QUEENS now serves as a safe space to ensure that women are owning their power, pursuing purpose, and creating meaningful lives.
