Timelapse | Laquita Abrams {S5 E12}


We welcome Laquita Abrams to the DWITW podcast this week! On this episode, Laquita shares her heart for those who have experienced domestic violence and how the Lord is using her story. In the second half, she tells of ministry, personal growth, and now being able to go into schools to speak to kids about domestic violence. Laquita wants to see God glorified through her story. In this episode, the verse “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so” (Psalm 107:2) resounds throughout.

Laquita Abrams is a domestic violence survivor after 14 years of abuse. The last five years, while walking in her purpose at St. Peter’s Baptist Church, she has become the head of the We Care Ministry. She has been the vessel God has used to help teach and mentor young women and teens who may have been in domestic violence relationships. She works with young women to help them recognize their self-worth and build positive relationships. She believes that when you know your worth, you will also value yourself more and hold higher accountability for yourself and those around you.
