Sometimes you have to pull all stops to connect with those whose busy schedule is always centered around inspiring people. That was the case when trying to catch up with the ever so busy Ann Wooten-Taylor.
Finally, we’d gotten the chance to sit down and have a conversation about her work in the ministry business as well as her family life. So sit back and be inspired with such a remarkable woman.
How are you today?
Ann: I’m fine. Thank you for asking!
I am so glad to finally sit down and get to know you. Now tell me a little bit about who you are?
Ann: I’m Ann Wooten-Taylor, the C.E.O. of Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries. I host and executive produce the Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries Radio Show as well as the newly premiered Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries Health and Fitness Talk Show. Additionally, I write the Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries Health and Fitness Column, which appears in three (3) magazines and the EAW Ministries Blog, which is posted on our website. I’m also the author of the Eating as an Act of Worship book series, and I teach the 12-week EAW Ministries Health and Fitness Course.
How long have you been with your company or ministry?
Ann: I have been a part of EAW Ministries since its inception. The ministry began as a result of God delivering me from obesity eleven (11) years ago. After He delivered me, He commanded me to teach others that He is the solution to the world’s health and fitness problems. As a result, I obeyed his commands to write down what He taught me and teach others. The first EAW Ministries Health and Fitness Class was held in the fall of 2012. We became a non-profit organization in 2014.
How long have you been a part of the Dynasty Television affiliation?
Ann: It’s hard to believe, but it’s only been a little over a year since we became a part of the Dynasty Television family. David Beckford and I became friends on Facebook, and he donated a commercial to EAW Ministries. From there, we just bonded in a very fruitful way for Dynasty and Eating as an Act of Worship Ministries. I was very grateful, so I interviewed a lot of individuals affiliated with Dynasty. It was beneficial to both organizations because EAW Ministries had great guests on our radio show and Dynasty promoted each individual to different audiences and markets that followed our radio show.
Do you see yourself making a career change in the near future?
Ann: Yes! I’ve been a practicing attorney since 2004. One of the first things the Lord told me when He chose me to lead this ministry is that one day I would work for Him full time. It was difficult to accept at first, but now I’m looking forward to it.
At your best estimate, how many listeners do you think engage with your content?
Ann: That is difficult to say. We not only broadcast live on the radio, but we simultaneously broadcast the show live via Periscope and Facebook. God also catapulted us to the number 1 spot on StudioW Buzz radio station, and we’ve held that spot for over a year now.
Let’s talk about the church. Do you attend regularly with such a busy schedule?
Ann: Our classes are usually held at local churches, so church attendance is automatic. We usually offer classes for twice per week for children and once per week for adults. Since I teach the classes, I have no choice but to attend.
How is your family life?
Ann: God has truly favored me with a blessed family. My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary a few months ago. Not only does he love me and the Lord, but he’s always been very supportive of the ministry work the Lord has assigned me. We have two god-fearing, intelligent, handsome sons, who are a blessing to us and the ministry. Over the years, the ministry has become a family affair that we’re all Dedicated to and responsible for in some way. We also lovingly minister to my mother who has been living with us since my father’s death and requires round the clock care. I’m grateful that everyone pitches in to help. It makes things easier.
Very commendable; I would like to thank you for your time, and make sure you leave the readers with your links and how they can listen in on your shows.
Ann: It was my pleasure! Thank you for inviting us to share with your audience!
