Devine Matthews is an author, freelance writer, director, producer, songwriter, television and radio host, screenwriter, playwright, evangelist and director of the Hollywood Prayer Network – Detroit Chapter. Devine was raised a devout Muslim. Throughout her personal life and business career, she has always considered herself first and foremost “God’s Handmaid.” As an adult, a series of events brought the mother of three to crossroads in becoming a Christian. While her decision was not an easy one, for Devine, there was no turning back. Her eyes filled with tears of gratitude and her heart warmed with a sincere appreciation for Life when she acknowledged Jesus as her Messiah. The peace, joy and freedom she discovered were well worth the challenges she faced throughout her lifetime.
Devine embraced her determination, passion and dedication in sharing her faith with others so they too could find the happiness she now enjoyed. Her devotion in helping others led to featured articles in the Detroit Free Press, Christian Examiner, A Christian Place Magazine, Inland Valley News, Woman’s World Magazine and PRWeb. She was contributing writer for the book about family life titled, “Happy Wife, Happy Life.”
Devine wrote, directed and produced a powerful and compelling short film titled, “Reach Your Dream,’’ that was selected for premiere screening review at the Kingdomwood Christian Film Festival in Atlanta, Georgia. She also successfully produced two popular television shows, Youth Unlimited Show and Gospel TV that aired on Time Warner Cable Television for six years. Devine has been featured as a dynamic guest speaker at various churches. Comments and praises about her speaking engagements include: “This unchurched woman of God is a true mouthpiece for the LORD with few but effective words that are direct and straightforward.” “The unique and unusual anointing that God has entrusted her with is quick and no nonsense.” She is known for her humility, compassion and persistent spirit in serving God. Many lives have been blessed and touched through her encouragement and generosity.
