About the author (2012)

Serenia Farrell born Serenia Redmond at St. Joseph Hospital in Paterson, NJ to Dolores Redmond in 1972. Being born in an unexpected, premature and breeched pregnancy is when Serenia began her life’s journey of bringing God glory. Surrounded by despair and unfortunate circumstances she was able to escape what statistics might have predicted as a hopeless future. Not knowing God had predestined her to greatness despite her obstacles. In June 2000 Serenia began her relationship with Jesus Christ and her eyes were opened to her real destiny and purpose of life. She was able to see that it was God that brought her though all of life’s difficulties and set her before greatness despite of what was predicted. Her insurmountable hurdles lead her to believe she was a mistake, worthless and insignificant. But God mapped a plan that intercepted that and was able to accomplish great things throughout her. Serenia has been able to be the first to graduate high school in her family, earning her college degree with no stable residency, establishing a professional career in elementary education, mentor, and most of all a true servant of God. Serenia earned her Bachelors of Art in Communication concentrating in Television Production and a minor in African American Studies at Ramapo Collage. Currently she teaches first grade for Irvington Public Schools. June 2000 to May 2007 she had devoted her life to serving in various ministries such as singles, prison, evangelizing team and closely serving where needed at Love of Jesus Family Church of Newark, NJ. Currently she worships at Love of Jesus World Outreach Center in Paterson, NJ as a devoted wife and mother of three lovely children.
