Strength through His Empowerment
“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will EMPOWER you with inner strength through his Spirit.” Ephesians 6:12 NLT
She writes because He empowers her and gives her His strength.
She writes through her pain and testimony, no matter its length.
She writes to empower me, and she empowers you too.
Her writing is blessed by His anointing and many days it has carried us through.
God gave our Editor the vision to bless a world through words and lines.
To hurting, struggling, victorious, and healed women,
whom through her writing have been given a sign.
A sign of hope, power, and new day of content
God blessed our Editor with the gift of empowerment.
This Empowermoment is dedicated to the Chief Editor and Visionary of Empowermoments. Today is her birthday. While today is also Thanksgiving, we would like to set aside a day to empower you through highlighting how she has empowered us. We are thankful for her. The ultimate purpose is that you too may become empowered to step out on faith, give up your free time, and refocus your energy to God’s business.
Kristen Renita Harris – This Tribute Is For You:
From Khalilah (Thursday Writer):
“When I think of you I see myself. Not only because we are Sorority Sisters and the beginning of that poem holds true to its end, but because I appreciate how you obey God and are transparent enough to allow others to be healed through your struggles and victories. You remind me of her. You know her, the Proverbs 31 Woman. You work diligently with your hands, your husband and children praise you, and your lamp never goes out at night. I want to empower you to continue the work God has implanted. Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. Philippians 1:6 NIV”
From Hassanah ( Saturday Writer):
“The first time I met you on the bulldog campus of AAMU, I thought you were a really cool person. Now, that I’ve been blessed with Empowermoments being a part of my life, you’re a really really cool person! I’m so thankful for you Krissy. You started such a strong movement to bless and empower women. God is truly using you and I’m glad to be a part of your blessing! Keep standing for what you believe in and know that your work for the Lord is never in vain. May your birthday be Blessed Beyond Belief! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!”
From Dee (Empowermoments Prayer Team Member):
“The founder of our EmpowerMoments, Mrs. Kristen Harris, has God’s shine in her, such a beautiful heart and a beautiful spirit!! What a genuine, God-fearing, obedient daughter of God she is…tireless in her work for the Lord and passionate about blessing other women of all walks of life. My most sincerest prayer is that God has a special mansion up in heaven with many gifts waiting on Kristen for all that she does in her ministry and for her true love and worship of the Lord.”
From Latasha S. (Writer and Team Member):
“Happy Birthday Kris-Kakes!! Since birth you protected, encouraged, and EMPOWERED me with the love of Jesus Christ. Even in my rebellious stage, I could not deny the changes He was making in your life and I wanted to love Him like you. Thanks for leading by example!
Thank You for blessing me with an awesome sissy! I ask that You continue to guide her in Your word and keep her faithful that she may walk boldly into her destiny. Please grant her patience as a mother, humility as a wife, and wisdom as our Editor in Chief. In Jesus Name, AMEN!
From Karitsa (Empowermoments Administrator):
I am thankful for everyone in my life. However today is not just any day, it’s Krissy’s birthday. How ironic it is that Krissy’s birthday is on Thanksgiving Day, a day that we give thanks to God for our many blessings. She has truly been a blessing in my life and so many others.
I want to take this time to say THANK YOU for my sistafriend, Kristen Harris. Thank you for the lifetime relationship that you have given to us. I ask that you continue to cover her, her family and the gifts that you have placed in her for your glory. Please continue to guide her journey, order her steps, and cover her mind, body and spirit as she does your will. Strengthen, sustain and restore her in her times of needs. Thank you, Daddy for using her as a vessel to show so many young women that you are REAL and that through you ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE if they stay steadfast and in your will. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
From Beverly (Saturday Writer):
Kristen, I have been inspired to love more, forgive more and judge even less, since I started reading EmpowerMoments. Moreover, I am in awe of your great writers, there spirituality is evident in their messages. You, indeed have something special, here. I pray that all of the time, energy and resources that you pour into EmpowerMoments are returned to you tenfold. May God continue to lift you up, and give you the wisdom required to handle the blessings that are beginning to overtake you. This is your time and your season, be Empowered.
From Katrina (Friday Writer)
To my Godsister and Friend Kristen,
I love you more than you’ll ever know. Thank you for being my friend, my confidante, the person that can and WILL check me when I’m trippin, and of course my prayer partner who nudges me to keep moving toward the destiny God has for me. Happy Birthday, I pray God continue to bless and show his favor on your life 🙂 Love, Katrina

To our Editor In Chief, Chief Visionary, Servant Leader and My Very Best Friend,
Happy Birthday! It has now been TEN years since God placed you in my life. We became much more than Sorority Sisters as we became true sister friends. We have laughed together, cried together and unfortunately in our disobedience we almost died together. Yikes! See The Night We Almost Died Over the years your maturity has amazed me. I have watched you grow into your womanhood as a wife and a mother and into Christ’s calling on your life. God has placed a special seed in your belly and your obedience has caused it to grow. Through Empowermoments we are all being used as vessels to inspire hundreds of women. When you asked me to be a part of Empowermoments, I was flattered because I realized that you saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself. I know this is going to be way BIG because you are following the vision that God has given you. Krissy I am proud of YOU. Your love for God, ambition, humility, confidence, intellect and drive are to be admired but as a friend I am in awe of your generosity, attentiveness, kindness, wisdom and humor. Just as lotions and fragrance give sensual delight, a sweet friendship refreshes the soul (Prov. 27:9 MSG) On this birthday know that you are beautiful on the inside and yes you are strikingly beautiful on the outside too. I am inspired, encouraged and motivated by you my sister. I am grateful to God for you. Continue being the Jazzy, Snazzy, Radiant light that you are.
Thank You for the vision that You have given Kristen Harris! As an Empowermoments team member and /or subscriber we pray that You cover and shield her and her family from attacks of the enemy, because of her obedience to Your word. We pray that You grant Empowermoments increase above anything that you can imagine and that you do the same for our Chief Visionary Kristen Harris. Grant her the desires of her heart and pour into her when she is weakened. In Jesus Name, Amen!
Ladies, I EMPOWER you today to be a light for someone else. Be a sister, a friend, or just a shoulder to cry on. Today, I EMPOWER you to EMPOWER someone else. Make that your business today.
