I’m Malika Cox from Oklahoma City. I spent my younger years battling addictions, self-destructive behavior and low self-esteem. I was involved in the underground music and goth scene in both New York City and New Orleans.
In December of 1996, while I was living in New Orleans, I opened the Bible for the first time in my life, and read psalm 56:13, “For You have delivered my soul from death. Have You not kept my feet from falling, That I may walk before God, In the light of the living?.”
I knew for some reason after reading that psalm that morning I had to leave New Orleans immediately and go to the airport to fly home to Oklahoma City. I did not go into work that day and as it turned out, three of my co-workers were killed on a shift I was suppose to work.
After I learned of what had happened I was devastated. I knew my life was in shambles and at that moment I asked Jesus Christ into my life to be my Lord and Savior. I spent the first two years as a Christian in limbo. I knew Jesus had saved me but I didn’t know God’s Word or His promises for me as a believer.
I ended up finding a wonderful church in Oklahoma City and enrolled in a two-year Bible College. After graduating, I have devoted my life to Christian ministry, service, and the study of God’s Word. I spent seven years volunteering with at-risk women and have written and taught the GLOW curriculum for new believers in the faith. This curriculum is especially focused for for people who battle addictions, self-destructive behavior and low self-esteem.
I have just published the Glow from the Inside Out curriculum and I am working on Back to Eden: Secrets from the garden for holistic health body, spirit & soul. I am also currently in Graduate School studying Practical Theological at Regent University.
