Regina Mcnish a faithful servant to the Lord Jesus Christ and a wife to her wonderful husband Keary Mcnish. Regina is the President & Creative Director for a community based praise dance ministry “We Fight to Tell Stories” (WFTTS).

Her passion for Christ has allowed her to evolve and in the midst of it all seek God.
JL: Where were you born?
RM: Ft. Lauderdale, FL
JL: What part of Haiti are your parents from?
RM: My parents were born in La’torture, Haiti. Raised in Port-de-Paix
JL: Have you ever visited Haiti before?
RM: No, I have tried many times but failed due to unforeseen circumstances.
JL: Describe your business in one statement
RM: We fight to tell stories; our stories matter!
JL: When did you find Jesus and how did it change your life?
RM: I found Jesus at a very young age. Then decided that the world had so much to offer, when I finally came back to Christ I was 27 years old and my life has been forever changed.
JL: What is your favorite bible verse(s)?
RM: Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you to be strong and courageous? Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”
JL: What’s your “why” and how did that help you start (business name)?
RM: My “why “is the reason why I’m here. It helped me start my business because I was able to scan my life and see that everything I went through was on purpose. I realized that the best moments of my life was when I was able to express myself through praise dance.
JL: How do you balance everything?
RM: Balance is still something I’m trying to acquire. Trying to juggle a business, marriage, work and motherhood is not something that can be easily perfected. I just try to my best to move according to his will and his way.
JL: Can you share an A-ha moment?
RM: My a-ha moment is when my business partner decided that she wanted to resign? It affected me until God showed me that He is all that I need to make this ministry what He has already predestined it be.
JL: What has been a discouraging moment during your journey as a business owner and how did you overcome it?
RM: My discouraging moment are finances, because it’s a Christian organization I never want any parent to feel as if they cant afford it, so their child cant participate. I overcome it every time because I trust God.
JL: Do you have any last encouraging words for women who are sitting on their purpose?
RM: Yes. Be obedient! Trust God not man. Don’t be afraid to fail. Everything else will fall into place. My greatest fear was to fail, I have several times until I decided to let go and allow God to take control. I’m not where I want to be but definitely a lot farther then where I was.
