Ashro Woman: Hattie H.

Hattie H. as "Ashro's Woman of the Week"

Meet Woman of the Week, Hattie H., from NC!

Hattie has loved God and fashion from the time she was a little girl. Growing up with parents that believed in serving the Lord helped groom her for the life she has now: as a wife, mother, grandmother…and founder/senior pastor of her local church. What are Hattie’s favorite things? Her family, her ministry…and sleeping in. When she gets up, however, “It’s business all day. Someone is depending on me, and I love being needed.” She also loves “getting in the presence of the Lord through prayer, getting a word from God to share with His people…seeing people’s lives changed.” Serving at church gives Hattie lots of opportunities to dress up. For her, fashion is about “showing off your best self”. With a wig collection of 95 wigs, Hattie says that walking into her clothes closet looks like you’re “walking into a wig shop.” How fun is that! Thanks for inspiring us, Hattie.

11. Are you a woman of faith? How does that faith affect your life? Please tell us more.
Oh yes, absolutely, All my life growing with parents that believed in serving the Lord with a “PASSION”. It helped groom me for the life I now live as a senior pastor and founder of a local church in my city!!!

The ability to help in times of crisis, when life get hard, and being able from experience, trial and error, when they are struggling with how to cope and how to handle just life, as they mature…

Yes I am, I love it! Often I get Christmas presents or anytime gifts or myself, the low monthly payment helps to order what you need. Me being a pastor… I minister every Sunday and have to change cloths a lot… so having a credit card makes it easy, lol.

And the low monthly payment are awesome!!!
