Fantasia Barrino says she believes her purpose in life is to minister to broken women.

Barrino, 32, debuted her new album, The Definition Of, last month which she believes is a reflection of her ministry.

“Truly, I think my ministry is women. Broken women and young mothers — encouraging them,” she told Essence. “I want to also encourage them by saying, ‘look, you guys. Love is there. It’s out there and there’s somebody for everybody.'”

The singer and mother of two said she managed to find love after undergoing a unique fast where she refrained from drinking, partying and men.

“I did a seven-month fast. For me that was long,” she revealed to AOL. “I went without drinking, partying, talking to any guys. That was a bit much for me.”

After her fast, she met her husband, Kendall Taylor.

“Thank God for my husband too,” she told AOL. “I knew that whatever man came into my life would build me up.”
