This Is My War Cry
If you know Ladie Smith personally, and you have to sum her up in one word, that word would more than likely be GIFTED! Anytime I see her, she's singing, and it's that music that you don't get tired of quickly. Ladie is blessed to be what is called in the theater world 'A Triple Threat'. Ladie sings, dances, and acts! She thoroughly enjoys doing ministering through the arts! Instead of letting her blessings go to waste she uses them to minister to others about Jesus Christ. She was beautiful when born On April 21st . (and still is) 13 years later after ups and downs...Ladie says, 'I feel God wants me to minister to people around my age, though I long to make music everyone can listen to and relate to. There is so much that teens are going through now-a-days, that only teens can relate to. So I tell my stories, and stories of others, in hopes that they may realize that they are not alone!' Ladie has been singing for 13 years. At the age of 3, it was obvious to Ladie's mother that she had a gift. Ladie's ministry is not about showcasing, money, or even about her, her ministry is all about God! Ladie is a member of the Conference Council on Youth Ministries of the United Methodist Church, she has served as the president of her church youth group for the past three years. She is a member of 4-H, the YWCA Teen Scene Group, and the Teen Start Youth Organization. Ladie has been featured as a spokesperson for the YWCA's Tru2U Program, for which she also wrote and performed the publicity jingle.
