Artist, Clergy, and Author in United States
Greetings, I am Tonya EL. I am a loving mother and grandmother. An artist and author of 3 books (Heal Beyond the Pain of Your Past: Tamar, How to Love When It’s Easier to Hate and Awaken Love: Heal from Hate and Emotional Wounds On Your Soul). Currently I'm writing my new upcoming book which publish spring 2020.
I have always had a fascination with culture, diversity and spirituality. This placed a desire within my heart to know the truth about God and to find God outside of church walls. That thirst led me to study and/or practice several religions and spiritual paths. Including Islam, Hebraic, Dao, Hinduism, African and etc. By studying and/or practicing various religions, I grew a deeper appreciation, respect, and love for humanity.
Though in my teens it was prophesied that I had a calling to ministry. I tried to run away from that calling. I just wanted to serve God and humanity with no official title. I was blessed to found Temple of Perfection, LLC in 2011. With the intention of offering light, hope and direction to those souls that seek to be at peace in mind, body and soul.
However, I finally got tired of boxing with God and surrendered to His will. I was ordained in 2013 as a Minister with Christ’s Central Chapel in Atlanta, Georgia under the leadership of Archbishop’s Dolores EL and Ralph EL.
As a minister I aspire to meet each person where they are in their life. Not being deterred and separated due to differences in religion, thought, views and other biases but connected by faith in the One creator of us all and His son Yeshua.
Through my various religious studies and practices I have learned that what divides people is EGO (Edging God Out). Because Truth is One and we are all spirits and not the physical body. So only in ones heart can one see God.
