|Dr. Yolanda Webster|
To Webster, hearing how others are inspired by her mentorship, Christian service and published books is music to her ears. Dr. Webster is CEO of Diamond Enterprises Inc., an inspirational publishing company.
Webster, who grew up in the Black historic urban enclave of Bedford Stuyvesant knows how to rise to a challenge in life, persevere, and make a difference. She affirms her deep Christian roots as being an important source of her resiliency and resolve “some of the greatest lessons I've learned in life on how to succeed are that God has a purpose and a plan for my life and His plan for me is only for my good.”
Dr. Webster is determined to encourage those who are ill and in need of a helping spirit. This is a part of who she is naturally and her core beliefs “I overcame formidable challenges in life because I took the focus off myself and focused on the greater good for other people” she reveals.
Dr. Webster has had her bouts with illnesses and uses music as a way to heal sick and infirmed souls that she empathizes with in her ministry. In reference to her inspirational music ministry in hospitals she adds “I became involved in health related ministries when I became ill and someone reached out to me from a religious support group.”
While some may be skeptical about the need for yet another motivational guru in a world full of them Dr. Webster isn't at all dissuaded. She feels with her extensive music background and affinity to those going through illnesses she has a unique divine calling to make a difference in the world and help others.
She shares her deeper feelings about her purpose by stating “Some of the greatest lessons I've learned in life on how to succeed are, God has a purpose and a plan for my life and His plan for me is only for my good.”
Her confidence can’t be rattled because of her abiding faith in God. She says with certainty “He loves me and wants only the best for me. He already began this work in me and promises to complete it. I'm in partnership with Him.” If Dr. Webster can continue to bring her unique skill set and compassion together to continue to inspire others her efforts will set the stage for some melodious motivations in the inspiration book publishing genre.
