Cora Coleman is passionate about living a life of purpose and fertility (the ability to produce!). She is a preacher, author, and wife to her wonderful husband Brandon Coleman, as well as mother to her beautiful daughter Amauri and energetic son Jason, aka “Tuga” “Tuga.” As eldest daughter to world renown Bishop Jakes, and First Lady Serita Jakes, Cora directs the children’s ministry at The Potter’s House of Dallas in addition to her Cora Jakes ministry efforts. Faithing It is her first book.
Cora loves life, and enjoys writing. She began writing her blog, “Fertility Faith,” at the age of 24 because of an early diagnosis of infertility. She went to the web looking for young women her age that were going through infertility, and could be a support to her, and found nothing for her age group.
Soon after, Cora went through her first IVF cycle, and it failed. She was heartbroken, lost, and confused, but was able to find wonderful women through her sisters blog, sarahdjakes.com that had fought infertility and won. These women became her support and her push. They encouraged her to continue to push forward, and pushed her to speak about her struggle in order to help others. Through this journey, Cora was able to claim her ultimate purpose. She defines fertility as the ability to produce, and encourages people of all walks of life to produce their talents and their purpose by fighting with faith. Cora calls her support community her fertility sisters, and without them she would have been lost!
Cora Coleman now posts weekly messages and speaks out about her battle with faith and infertility in the hopes of building a global support group for all people who are fighting for, not just a baby, but their ultimate promise that the Lord has spoken over them. She received her ministerial license from the Potter’s House School of Ministry, and plans to continue to encourage people worldwide through her blog, books, and speaking platform where she will encourage you to fight for your dream no matter what obstacle you are facing. She not only a compassionate warrior for young women battling infertility, she has a heart for all people who are trying to get and reach their promise.
