    BIOGRAPHY
    Jennifer Monet Cowley has been painting and drawing since the age of 5. Her talent was recognized at an early age through her artwork collected by her parents and grandparents. In high school, she studiedfashion design and commercial art. Upon entering college, she focused on architectural design, but her love for art prevailed. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Art in Art and Performance fromthe University of Texas at Dallas. Jennifer works in various mediums: colored pencils, pastels, gouache, acrylic, watercolors, and collage. Jennifer also designs and paints wearable art. In addition to being anartist, she is a curator as well. While employed as Curator at Dallas’ African-American Museum at Fair Park, Jennifer curated severalgroundbreaking art exhibitions. Sammetria Goodson, an attorney and advocate for the arts, has remarked that Jennifer’s curating concepts are groundbreaking and rival some of the best in the world. Overall, Jennifer is an artist whose versatility and skills empower her to create distinctive works and concepts that give her a unique style and voice that is all her own.
    ARTIST STATEMENT
    Jennifer’s artwork is full of color and symbolism. She feels that color and composition play a very important role in expressing the meaning of a particular piece. She also feels that craftsmanship is key in the presentation of her artwork. Jennifer works to ensure that lively color and craftsmanship show in each of her pieces so that each piece of art has special appeal to the viewer. A majority of the imagery thatJennifer depicts in her works of art focuses primary on women, black women in particular dealing with objectification, being devalued, joy, women’s rights among other things. Jennifer also enjoys historicalstory telling through her art.

    About Host, Karla Nivens:
    After graduating from Texas Tech University, Karla earned her teaching certificate and began her career as an elementary music teacher in the Dallas Independent School District. She also sang for Grammy award-winning Gospel recording artists Kirk Franklin, CeCe Winans, Fred Hammond, Donnie McClurkin, Crystal Lewis, Willie Neal Johnson, John P. Kee, Alvin Slaughter, Tamela Mann, and Michael Buble’. She's traveled the world and ministered to diverse audiences in music. During her travels, she had the opportunity to sing on the Jay Leno Show, Soul Train, the Stellar Awards, and the Billy Graham Crusade with Kirk Franklin.






    She took a hiatus while staying at home with her children for several years and re-entered the workforce as a worship leader at Highland Park United Methodist Church. Karla has worshipped with Highland Park for the past 17 years. Currently, Karla is building the Racial Justice ministry for Highland Park UMC. Karla has also served as an adjunct instructor for Visible Music College and in 2014 released a CD entitled “True Worship.” Five years ago a good friend suggested she turn her heart toward fulfilling the Great Commission. Karla began traveling on yearly mission trips to Costa Rica and Africa. On those trips the Lord began to awaken the motto He gave her in college – “Influencing Culture for the Good of the Kingdom.” As an answer to this awakening, Karla and Dr. Roosevelt founded Karla Nivens Entertainment. Under this umbrella, Karla partnered with Love Ministries, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, started a small group for women, and a radio show both titled “Every Heart Every Woman.” Karla encourages her audience to quiet the noise and restore balance in their daily lives through inspirational entertainment. The show airs Sundays as a podcast on iTunes and Podbean weekly. The show also airs in video on YouTube. In 2019, Karla released her book, True Leaders with Heart, packed with weekly meditations for leaders.

    Every Heart Every Woman Episode 180 - Everything is Possible Over a Cup of Coffee Part 2 - Anna Ocansey-Jimenez & Oneida Franco

    About Anna Ocansey-Jimenez:

    Anna Ocansey-Jimenez is a C-level accounting and finance professional and entrepreneur with nearly 30 years’ experience transforming the operations of both non-profit organizations and large global brands.

    In 2018, along with friend and business partner Oneida Franco, Anna co-founded The Whole Kitchen, Inc. (TWK) — a company that creates meaningful experiences around a shared appreciation for food, sustainability, culture, and introspection. On October 1, 2021, National Coffee Day, the pair launched Casa Dos Chicas Café (CDCC), a brand of TWK. CDCC offers organic, single-origin, specialty coffees sourced mainly from Latin America.

That’s where Oneida saw Franco Blueprint as the solution - a one-stop service and support system for business owners tuned into the frequency of creation and abundance.Shortly afterward, Oneida’s partner Rick Diaz came on board as CFO, bringing an additional 25+ years of experience and expanding FB’s roster to include financial real estate development and construction accounting.In 2018, Oneida and business partner Anna Ocansey co-founded The Whole Kitchen, Inc.

God is at work on EHEW

Every Heart Every Woman and the topics they cover are so encouraging. It's awesome to hear from women about the call God has put on their lives and how He's using them to do great, hard, and God-glorifying things. Karla and Vickie are also so relatable. Tune in for encouragement and stay for the laughter. :)
