We had the good fortune of connecting with Christina Worth and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christina, as a parent, what have you done for you children that you feel has had the most significant impact?
Teaching my daughter and the girls that I have mentored that the only person who can stop them, is them. There are spaces in life that are not the easiest and you must be willing to work hard but each trial will position and prepare you for your destiny.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being an author was never something that was a goal of mine. However growing up writing was my safe place for expressing myself. My very first book Broken In God’s Grace was therapeutic and freeing because it was my truth. My first set of children’s books (Pretty Brown Girl and Black Boy Joy) came from my heart just as my first book did and my books to come. I wanted the books to speak love, support, confidence, empowerment and more into the life of every girl, boy, woman, and man that read them. My greatest struggle has been myself and I havent always believed that I am worth of the titles that I now carry. Being someone that struggles with anxiety and depression, I often felt that it made me less. But I have learn to celebrate and appreciate myself flaws, insecurities and all. God made no mistakes with me and as He blesses me, I will continue to walk in confidence and be a blessing to others. As for what the world should know about me and my brand. I am imperfectly perfect striving towards progress and growth daily. I am nothing without God and His directions.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My daughter Amani, my sister Keyona, my amazing friend Sherene, my Pastors Dr. Burns and Pastor Jenkins, my CCTOF family, my family/friends and last but not least God. I prayed for covenant relationships that would align with my purpose and that’s exactly what God has given me.These people hold me accountable, love and value me for me, flaws and all.
