Speak Woman Presents

Speak Woman Magazine is a publication that was created with a simple, yet important mission; to spotlight the positivity in EVERY woman. We strive to be a vessel of information while promoting positivity.

With this commitment in mind we will be hosting our 2nd Mental Health Symposium Saturday June 16, 2018 1pm at Aspire Church 51 Best St. Dayton, Ohio 45405. Mental Health/Illness affects everyone and it hits our community the hardest. This event was created to start the conversation about Mental Health and Drug Addiction. Speak Woman is a platform to shine light on subjects that matter most, and Mental Health and addiction certainly does.

Minister Raleigh Thornton Jr. was commissioned by God at the age of 17 years old, yet he ran the other way, fast! Out of disobedience to God, a 25 years wilderness experience occurred. While constantly looking back, he struggled with addictions, depression and self-destruction. Longing for the love of God, he surrendered to his calling in December 2014 and preached his first sermon at his home church New Testament Missionary Baptist Church in Dayton, OH where his dad is the Pastor. Min. Raleigh knows God to be a healer, a provider, a protector, a lover, a friend and a comforter. Min. Raleigh finds nothing more exciting than sharing the good news of God’s unconditional love, His love and His ability to redeem the lost. He knows all about it because of his own personal experiences. Min. Raleigh is currently studying Theology at The Urban Leadership Academy (U.L.A.) in Dayton, OH through Omega Missionary Baptist Church. He also has his own radio broadcast through the Storm Talk 365 Radio Network on Spreaker called “Setting the Captives Free”. The show airs Mondays at 7:30 am EST. Min. Raleigh is a Messenger of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Blessed beyond human comprehension!
