Every month we will share the story of a survivor of human trafficking. The purpose is to share that there is hope after trauma in our lives! Since October is Domestic Violence Awareness month we are highlighting a DV Survivor!!
Kamekio Lewis - Author of "Looking 4 Love...in all the Wrong Places" and Founder of Share Life
Serving others with Passion, Perseverance & Poise
Surviving a 2 year abusive relationship fueled
her passion to help other women in similar
situations and motivated her to write her 1st book, "Looking for
Love....In All the Wrong Places. The community support was overwhelming and she
used the book as the basis to continue to bring awareness to domestic violence
and wrote and produced her first Hit Stage in 2012 to a sold out crowd in
Memphis, TN. Her mission is to
continue to use print, publications, and
plays to help bring awareness to the seriousness of domestic violence.
She found love in the right place and has
been married to the love of her life, Dennis for 14 years. They have 3 handsome
boys, Kaveyon, Kemareyon, & Dakaree!
Kamekio has a passion to share the love of God
through ministry and fellowship with women and children. In 2009, she completed
Ministry Training International has continuously worked in ministry throughout
her military career in Alaska, Kansas, and now in Tennessee.
As a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor, she has worked in
the rehabilitation field for 10 years, helping individuals with disabilities
transition. Her passion to help others
succeed is demonstrated through her countless volunteer hours and outreach
ministries. She is the Executive Director of A New Day Rehabilitation &
Counseling Services, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to eliminate
transitional barriers and coordinate services for women and children.
In efforts to provide housing for these families in need, A New Day has
collaborated with The Share Life Community Housing Initiative, to provide a comfortable, caring, and conducive
