About Our Founder
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Goddess Mother- Priestess Elder LaDonna Blaylock D.D.
LaDonna is the executive director of Goddesses Blessing Goddesses. In this role, LaDonna coordinates a team of professional staff and board members to provide services and programs the organization offers to veteran women, women, and families in need. She is a big believer in the advocacy of women's rights and supports the sustainability of the family foundation.
LaDonna is no stranger to charity work and understands the basic struggles families endure to maintain a decent life for themselves and their children. She was a single parent of two daughters, a niece and believes that education is the key to a better life. She grew up in the early ’50s and was introduced to the Christian life through her grandmother Apostle Lois B. Price of Omaha, Nebraska, whom she would visit during Summer vacations. “She taught me everything about the love for God and in helping other people.” Says LaDonna. “She was a saint., today I’m a priestess with credentials as an ordained minister and divine divinity; who would have imagined?” She adds.
The subsequent passing of her youngest daughter, Arisa, in 2007 made her also realize how illnesses and certain traumas can affect the overall wholeness of people and that the limitations of the current systems in place were not really really helping people long-term. Developing a nonprofit, helping the undeserved has become her life mission. The reality of eleven women losing their lives at the murderous hands of Anthony Sowell of Imperial Avenue in 2009 and demanding the house be razed, or the fact that there were only 2 beds for disabled veteran women among the 16 available at the V.A.’s Women Domiciliary, reflects that GBG’s mission to empower women through enlightenment is a much-needed call for women to take their sacred position as leaders in their families as well as in their communities.
LaDonna is always eager to work with veteran women and women in the local community who are going through transitions in their lives. Through this experience, she has facilitated and implemented programs and activities of support where she would work one-on-one to help clients meet and exceed their expectations and reach their full potential. For LaDonna, it is an honor to be a small part of helping a woman’s life changed for the better. When it pertains to women’s health, we tend to focus on the physical aspect to make a difference in becoming not only whole but should also include the mental, spiritual, and emotional components.
Through enlightenment, empowering women means providing resources, education, and support where both individual and an entire family need it the most.
