Who is Tawana Williams?

Tawana WilliamsTawana Williams was born in Wilson, NC., In 1963 without arms. She learned to use her feet in the place of her hands. She grew up in the Washington, DC. area, where she attended school. As a senior in high school, she got addicted to Crack Cocaine. Her addiction lasted 10 years until God delivered her instantly in 1991. She became the wife of Mr. Keither Toby Williams, and a mother to their little girl April. She learned to change her babies diapers, and braid her babies hair with her feet!

Mrs. Williams also became an Artist, an Author, a Poet and a Singer. For the last nine years she has traveled nationally as a Motivational Speaker, and messenger of hope. She has been featured on Les Brown's Monday Motivational call and recently she was featured on the Judge Hatchet show as a mentor to troubled teens. Read what Les Brown wrote for the foreword of her powerful new book, "UnArmed, but Dangerous."

Have you ever heard someone’s voice and they spoke to the very core of your being? I have!

Have you ever met someone and instantly you knew you were in the presence of greatness? I have! Have you ever met someone who had so much going against them that you wondered how they were able to survive and then felt ashamed of yourself for living a defeated life? I have! That’s how I felt when I met Tawana.

Born without arms and with a tiny stature of just over 4 ft., she overcame child molestation, poverty, rape, mental and physical abuse, addiction to crack and cocaine, among other painful tragedies. Using her feet, she learnt how to write and draw beautiful works of art, answer the phone, cook and live a normal life. She operates a business, mesmerizes audiences as a motivational speaker and can sing the roof off of a church. In addition to all those things I will venture to say that her greatest joy is being a devoted loving wife to her soul mate and God given companion, Toby. To see them together and the love they express for each other is the greatest example I have ever seen of what love truly is. Toby, a gifted speaker and a servant husband taught me and the men in one of my recent Speaker Training Summits, how to serve and treat a woman with class. We were humbled and felt blessed to learn from his example and in particular to be in their presence to witness their devotion to each other.

There is no question in my mind that Tawana will impact peoples’ lives around the world through her classic first book, Unarmed But Dangerous. This warm, inspiring and incredible human spirit does so much, with so little, that she challenges all of us to look within and realize how much more life has to offer if only we were willing to commit ourselves to do what is required to live a more significant life.Tawana’s life example will inspire you to soar to new heights and to accomplish things that will literally amaze you.

Although Tawana does not carry a gun or a knife, she is truly unarmed and dangerous because she uses the weapons of her faith in God and her unfailing commitment to serve His calling on her life, as we all should do. After reading this book your life will never be the same again.

Tawana the world is a better place because you showed up! Les Brown
