When you understand who you are then its pretty easy I think,” said CeCe Winans-Love, 10-time Grammy winning Gospel vocalist and First Lady of Nashville Life Church, about the challenges of the 1st ladies of the church. “When people try to become something that their not or what they think people expect…I think it becomes hard.”
Such words of wisdom came in abundance while talking to the many first ladies of churches during the 10th annual “First Ladies High Tea” event held in late 2017 at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. CeCe Winans-Love is married to Pastor Alvin Love, II of the Nashville Life Church and she joined other first ladies who were honored at the L.A. Focus event. Winans-Love received the “Spirit Award.” The “First Ladies High Tea” honors were founded by L.A. Focus publisher Lisa Collins. The event always features celebrity guests who are presenters or hosts.
The 2017 “First Ladies High Tea” hosts were Dr. Bobby Jones and Dr. Beverly “Bam” Crawford, pastor of Bible Enrichment Fellowship International Church. Aside from the first ladies of the church other honorees included 37thDistrict Congresswoman Karen Bass and actress Wendy Raquel Robinson for their community service. The first ladies honored also included Regina Taylor of Park Windsor Baptist Church, Morgen Wilbourne of Pacific Crossroads Church, Patricia Swancy of Peace Apostolic Church and Cynthia Bueina of Restauracion Total Church.
