Daily Inspiration: Meet Dr. Gena Crawford

Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Gena Crawford.

Dr. Gena Crawford

Hi Dr. Crawford, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
In 2013, I was inspired to launch The P.O.W.E.R Experience Consulting as a way to assist others in planning out and executing their purpose, vision, and dreams. Interestingly, I found myself to be my first client. I realized while helping others; my purpose was multidimensional. Understanding this, I found the need to organize my life’s purpose thus leading the founding of Legena S. Crawford Ministries (LSM633).

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The road to managing my purpose by way of TPE and LSCM633 has not been a smooth one. Some struggles and challenges I have faced along the way included the inevitable and sometimes pleasant changes of life (age, career, health, parenthood, educational attainment, etc…). Other struggles included self-doubt, burnout, and sometimes the fear of success.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
My life’s work and purpose have navigated me down the avenues of pastor, consultant, educator, author, mentor, and motivational speaker. Travels down all of these avenues has afforded me the opportunity to assist others in realizing and reaching their full God-given potential. If I had to choose, other than being a wife and a mother, I am most proud of earning a doctorate degree in Organizational Leadership and the compilation of my literary works. Additionally, what sets me apart from others is the way I understand, explain, and connect natural occurrences to spiritual connotations by way of words and more specifically, acronyms. My friends have affectionately called me “The Wordsmith”.

Do you have any memories from childhood that you can share with us?
As a preacher’s kid (PK) and an only child, my father traveled quite often for ministry. So my favorite childhood memory was having the opportunity to spend time time with my parents in the car as we traveled for holidays to Savannah, Georgia to see family. It was exciting to see my family gather around tables and in rooms filled with conversation and laughter.
