Adrienne Reece is wife to Malcolm and mother to Malachi. She is a writer, ordained minister, and full time entrepreneur with a passion to see the body of Christ become healthy, whole, and prosperous. Adrienne and her husband recently became 100% debt free by paying off over $200k of their consumer debt during the pandemic. Since then, Adrienne has begun teaching others how they can regain control of their money and create a prosperous future for themselves, regardless of age or demographic. Adrienne is passionate about educating her community on achieving new levels of financial and physical fitness. Adrienne served in the U.S. Air Force for just over 13 years. Upon getting out of the Air Force, Adrienne went on to complete her Bachelor of Science degree in Organizational Leadership just 3 weeks shy of having her son Malachi. As she adjusted to motherhood, God entrusted she and her husband to build and lead a Youth ministry from the ground up. Following the reign of that youth ministry, Adrienne entered into what she refers to as “one of the darkest seasons of her life”. She made a pact with God, that if He would allow her to receive full compensation from her military occupation, that she would fully walk in her Heavenly vocation. He has since come through on her request. Now, it is her life’s pursuit to come through on His.
