Prayer… how has it impacted women in history? on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Many women in history have contributed their success and many achievements to the power of prayer. Although African slaves worked the cotton fields picking cotton, many times they could be heard singing hymns of praise and prayer despite the hardship from working “sun up until sun down” on different slave plantations. Regardless of their sufferings, trials and tribulations they believed in the power of prayer.

Historically, African-American people have been known to be very spiritual. From the old Negro spirituals sung during slavery, to using prayer as a catalyst for divine intervention during the civil rights movement.

Do you believe prayer is divine intervention? How has prayer sustained your well being or those women from your generation?

Are there any women of character, courage and committment? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


In my conclusion of Women’s History month, I have to ask the question; are there any women of character, courage and commitment left? Why are these young girls looking to mentors they cannot physically touch to demonstrate character? And these are not positive mentors so to speak.

Instead of looking to women in their families and communities as exemplary role models, these young ladies are NOT looking past what they see on TV. When they need real positive, God fearing women who can realistically impact their lives.

Ladies, can you reflect on your own life – are you living a life that you would be proud to share?

Join me tonight at 8:00 P.M. on Conversations of A Sistah via Conversations Live as I talk about recognizing the character, commitment and courage of the woman in the mirror or the women in your life.

Can’t wait to see you on the air!

Women living their parents legacy…Tonight on Conversations Of A Sistah


It’s Women’s History month and we’re celebrating woman who were taught to have a strong family structure, a love of people, a zest for life, strong work ethics and a thrive to succeed.

Born the eldest of two daughters, she was born and reared into a family destined to succeed. Her developing years as a youngster revolved around her family’s restaurant business. With strong values and solid principles, her mother was the strength and the force that helped her father build a family friendly establishment to this day.

Due to her religious upbringing and her parents strong faith, she and her sister were taught to “Be the best you can be every day and to do the right thing; then you will do good in life and you will find good”.

Join me tonight at 8:00 PM. on “Conversations of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” for my special guest RoseMarie Ranuro (pictured above) as we discuss the legacy of her father’s famous eatery “Biggie’s Restaurant” raw bar and tavern.


RoseMarie’s vivacious personality and contagious attitude energizes her to connect with people and find the good in everyone. Along with Biggie’s signature dishes and a family friendly atmosphere, they never disappoint.  

Although Biggie’s success has swelled to five (5) locations; Carlstadt, Ramsey and Hoboken; just to name a few. RoseMarie’s career in nursing coupled with the management of all five (5) sites cane be a challenge but it gives her the opportunity to offer an energy that adds to the businesses continued success.

So don’t forget to tune in to hear what keeps my special guest “Happy as a clam”

We’ll see you on the air.
