On a regular day, Felecia is a wife, mother, and grandmother. She and her husband Jerry have a blended family of six children, ten grandchildren, and five great grandchildren.

Over the years Felecia has served in many administrative capacities from churches to the private sector, and currently serves as the Church Business Administrator for Redeemer Church, PCA. She has a love for real estate having been a Realtor for Century21, earning Top Sales and Listing Agent for many years prior to the big crash in 2009. Felecia is a savvy businesswoman having owned several businesses ranging from online boutiques to a brick-and-mortar home décor store. Despite all her accomplishments, nothing is more important to Felecia than her relationship with the Lord.
On March 14, 2017, everything about her life as she knew it changed when her daughter Alexia was murdered. At the time, it seemed like a pit that she would never be able to ascend, but God! Through this loss, and subsequent minimal plea deals accepted, the organization, Grant Me Justice: A Voice for the Victim was founded where she has been given the privilege to connect with women all over the world who have lost their children to violence.
At its inception, Grant Me Justice was a vehicle to document the untold stories of murder from the perspective of a grieving mother, giving the world a front-row seat into the impact of their loss, the processing of their grief, and their personal journey through the criminal justice system.
Grant Me Justice currently provides not only an opportunity to tell one’s story, but also valuable resources that lend towards holistic healing. Grant Me Justice consists of three components, Awareness, Advocacy, and much-needed direct support, giving our families much-needed tools in their arsenal of recovery from the trauma of murder.
God is good and has been faithful to Felecia. He has taken the poignant sting of the murder of her daughter and moved it to a powerful life work that brings healing to the brokenhearted. Ultimately, Grant Me Justice has evolved from merely telling stories and providing resources to a ministry that impacts hurting families with the Hope of the gospel.
