Woman By Jessica Pleger


Passionate About Motivating and Enriching the Lives of Women.

To say Jennifer Goodson wears many hats is an understatement but this wife, to

world renowned artist Keith and mother of three, is passionate about motivating and enriching the lives of women. A resident of Auburndale, Florida, Jennifer is a motivational speaker, writer, life coach, pastor, and counselor, to name a few. Her passion to motivate women came to fruition in her home office in 2008 by the means of “Brake 5”, a bi-weekly devotional designed for women throughout the United States and abroad and she allowed the Lord to take control from there. What began as only a network of 12 women, sharing their stories and encouraging one another has grown into a much larger triumph. Her devotionals are now part of her “Brake 5” website that has over 3,800 followers in the United States and over 47 countries. The concept of Brake 5 is Real Women, loving a Real God, creating with Real Purpose. It focuses on building up the mind, body, and spirit of women by bringing biblical foundations and practical experiences. Brake 5 focuses on mentorship/ discipleship programs, international online small groups, weekly one on one pastoral counseling sessions, and annual women's conferences. These counseling opportunities cover topics a wide variety of topics such as Marriage, Parenting, Physical and Substance Abuse and Finding Purpose of Life. On a smaller scope, Brake 5 subscribers receive blogs that are sent out twice a month through emails as well as joining the groups via Facebook, Twitter and the website. It is a free subscription for individuals as well as network subscriptions that are geared toward churches to offer support of women who are traveling through or do not have a church home. Goodson inspires women to use the obstacles and experiences from their past to help find their true self-worth and motivate them toward overcoming difficulties they might face in their future endeavors. She has had the opportunity to change the lives of women to help them overcome their struggles from helping a homeless woman in Rhode Island who she helped find a home and a job to a woman who desired to go to rehabilitation to get her life back on track that is now married and going to college. If there is a problem that Jennifer is not currently licensed to handle, she has the resources of licensed colleagues that she can refer the women to so they receive the help that is needed. Every Saturday morning Jennifer and a group of five intercessors gather together to pray for the requests of women across
