Here's a quick intro of me! I'm immeasurably blessed and happy to be the wife of Kyle McGlotten and mother to the three terrific gems God has entrusted to us. I'm also a daughter, sister, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, godmother, and friend. But I'm best described as a grateful child of God living to make His name great. If you asked me what I do, I'd tell you that I teach, mentor, and volunteer in a variety of capacities. I also write poetry and prose. If you said, Angelique what do you most enjoy doing?, I'd respond that whether it's lending a helping hand, sending a greeting card out of the blue, or picking up thoughtful gifts for others, I love to give. I also love, love, love being used as a channel of God's grace to bless people.
Because I absolutely enjoy encouraging others, my husband and children affectionately call me "Triple E" (Encourager, Edifier, and Exhorter). In fact, my latest book, Living Backward, is birthed from my desire to inspire others to live out God's plan for their lives and in so doing experience contentment, genuine success, and lasting significance.
I was born in Liberia, situated on the west coast of Africa. My amazing parents raised my siblings and me in a warm and loving environment. I enjoyed an idyllic childhood until my family was forced to abruptly flee our home as a result of a brutal coup d'état. We left behind all that my parents had worked for and by God's grace, resettled in the U.S. with next to nothing. God faithfully took care of us. I went on to study psychology at the University of Virginia and later became an ardent student of Scripture.
When not writing or studying, I relish time with my family. I also enjoy reading, listening to worship music, playing drums in the praise and worship band at church (where my husband is the senior pastor), journaling, exercising, and capturing memories. My family resides in northern Virginia.
I'd like to connect further, so I kindly invite you to visit my site: AngeliqueCooperMcGlotten.com. I think you'll be inspired. You have only one life to live. I encourage you to live on purpose and make your existence count by becoming all that you were created to be!! With my blessings and love, Angelique.
