Thelma L. Well’s life has been a courageous journey of faith. Thelma grew up to become a trailblazer for black women, a prominent international speaker and author, and a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
We can have anything we want in life if we have the physical ability, mental aptitude, and motivation to do so.
She was a member of the first group of girls to integrate the school’s dormitories. She earned her Bachelor’s degree there and eventually received a Master’s of Ministry. In 2002 she became the school’s first black female professor.
Thelma became the first black woman in the South to organize her own international speaking and consulting corporation.
Her natural talent for public speaking and storytelling attracted the attention of the Women of Faith Tour, and she became the first black core speaker for the organization.
She has authored several books, including her latest, God Is Not Through With Me Yet, an inspiring examination of her own life experiences in which she encourages readers to “sing in the closets of their lives.”
She serves as the president of The Daughters of Zion Leadership Mentoring Program, an organization she founded (another first for a black woman).
Through this ministry, “Mama T,” as she is affectionately called, has mentored over 100 spiritual daughters.
