Proctor said this will be the first-ever event of its kind to her knowledge.

“This is the first one I know of and it will be here in Port Arthur,” she said. “God spoke to me about empowerment of women and teen girls so they can seek God and hear his advice clearly and speak those promises and soar.”

Proctor said she has been receiving good feedback about the event. They have partnered with Girls’ Haven in Beaumont and they have sponsored underprivileged girls so they can attend.

The cost to attend is $25 for adults and $5 for teens.

Procter will be the first speaker followed by Plair and Staples will be the final speaker.

Brunch will then be served.

Proctor wrote in her biography she had many misfortunes in her early childhood years — from witnessing her mother’s addiction to drugs, an absentee father, along with a stepfather who was verbally, mentally and sexually abusive.

In spite of this turmoil, “God used her for good” (Romans 8:28).

“Overcoming these unfortunate events was no easy task,” it read. “Before Coach K reached age 14, she had attempted suicide three times. This forced psychological review and this where she gained a deeper relationship with Christ.”

She graduated high school and college with a 3.8 GPA. She now travels the world coaching others and mentoring troubled teen girls through her Teen KICK Ministry.

She also authored “Texas and The City,” “Fear NOT Workbook and “10 Steps to KICK start Confident Living for Teens.”

In “Texas and The City,” she writes about moving from Port Arthur to Dallas, Austin and New York and back home. Her next book will be “Ridiculous Faith” coming out next year.

She added that she’s a positive person who can turn lemons into lemonade.

“We need to start with women when they’re young. Everyone is born with a gift,” Proctor said.
