Monique grew up in a Christian home in a small town outside of Toronto, Canada. She became a follower of Christ and nurtured her relationship with God from a very young age. Ministry was especially important to her family’s involvement with the church. She learned lessons on the Bible and was strongly encouraged to read it on her own. Although Monique may have learned the scriptures, she didn’t personalize it and believe it for herself. She didn’t understand that she could take one scripture, believe on it and literally watch it bear fruit in her life.
As time progressed, Monique was burdened with heartache and pain; fear and rejection. She cycled for years with issues around identity and purpose. Then one day, God sent a Word confirming Monique was called to speak and to write; encouraging women to live a purposeful life. By believing on His Word and allowing Him to make her whole again; she was able to find consolation in Romans 8:28 and 1 Thessalonians 5:24. Monique knew for a fact, not only was God real, but His scriptures continue to be relevant, even for today’s generation. Monique truly believes the Spirit of God uses the Bible to change and transform lives, even in the most depraved situations. She understands without a shadow of a doubt, there is life even when we cannot see it!
With an Undergraduate degree in Women’s Studies and a Masters degree in Social Justice Education, Monique often speaks and teaches on the power of the cross- Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection; relating these truths to how this impacts who we are today and how we see ourselves as women of the 21 century.
“I am a lover of knowledge. I know it sounds quirky, but it’s true; the more I learn, the more I desire to know. Because of this, education has always been key to my understanding of myself and my place in this world. I desire to connect with women from all walks of life, seeking the truth of God’s Word and discovering the ways it can be applied to our lives. I want women to know God’s Word is real and it has purpose for each and everyone of us!” -Mo Chanbers

Rochelle has had a heart for ministry since her teenage years and has been involved in various ministries within the local church. She has gained much experience working as Children’s Director, Youth Pastor, Young Adult minister, Prayer counsellor, as well as many other ministries. Unfortunately, the experience in church ministry was not all glorious and the demands of others resulted in burnout several times.

Walking in God’s freedom and learning to live a balanced life is close to Rochelle’s heart for herself as well as others.
