ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- A three hour gathering of “mature women” for healthy and inspiring discussions on “life” was obviously not enough for those who turned up in their numbers for the Charm Academy’s Breakfast of Champions, as there was a resounding call for it to evolve into a full day gathering.

The Charm Academy, conceptualised and headed by Mrs Karia J. Christopher, held its second Breakfast of Champions yesterday morning November 23, 2019 at Maria’s By the Sea titled “The Opulent Sitting – Tiffany Edition”.

The sharply decorated hall was filled to capacity, with over fifty (50) women in attendance.

“We evolved into women, because we cannot have great little girls without great women and little girls evolve into wonderful women. So here we have the Breakfast of Champions,” Mrs Christopher said, adding that the focus was on topics that matter beyond their career.

Panellists

They panellists  who led the discourse, which to a greater extent hinged on intimate relationships, were Ayana S. Hull, who show shared her personal story of marriage and divorce; Rosetta Crandall, who focused on how she would position herself in the chain of priority should she remarry; Stephanie I. Faulkner-Williams kept it real on balancing modern day living with living the “bible” way and the importance of keeping self-satisfied and Dr Joycelyn Hoyte, who stuck to the “God” way while being assertive about “who you are and what your standards are.”

For the second year, former legislator, professional counsellor and medical professional Dr Kedrick D. Pickering was the featured guest speaker.

Impactful

The discussions were intense but, with the limited time allotted for the use of the venue, most in attendance were not able to plug their questions and participate fully in the discussions. This led to a popular call for the event to become a one-day retreat.

According to Mrs Christopher, “I will seriously consider it. It’s a universal call by the women. I am so happy about the impact this has made and will continue to make in the lives of our women.”

The event also featured an auction segment led by Mr Julien N. Johnson. More than $1500 was raised for the BVI Cancer Society.

“The donation will go directly for Breast Cancer but our overall focus at Charm Academy is women’s health and sexuality,” Mrs Christopher said.

      Sound like a grown man still sucking on the breast. Men have the best support. Jesus Christ is the head of every man. The man has abandoned Jesus and thus, the woman is left without direction. That’s why they form that women’s group. If you men would return under the head of Christ there would be no need for the women’s gathering in this article and both man and woman will have the best support ever.

      The biggest dysfunction in society is when a woman has to raise a man-child without a male head. That man-child turns out to be a real p*$$y. He does not know what it means to be a man. He abandons his role and the woman or wife has to take the lead because this is all he was exposed to. A woman taking the lead.

        I would like to know where to get these support. Look at the BVI society without bias and without the chips of your shoulder and you would clearly see a nation that is dominated by females "listen i am not saying it good bad or indifferent" but if we keep leaving the males behind, the social ills will continue to persist. Women who desires a man is finding hard to get a suitable mate, or have to settle. love the work the the Charm Academy is doing for the females but our young men need help and need it bad.

    When both man and woman in a DIVINED marriage follow Bible standards marriage is a success. There is no success in adulterous unions. Like homosexual marriages, these adulterous marriages are the works of the Devil.

    Whilst you are at it, teach the women whore$ to come clean and teach those women who have not falling into that category not to go there. Maybe you can get some women on the panel who were in that condition and have since clean up their life to tell others about the stench that goes with such a lifestyle.

    A lot of relationships fall apart simply because of lack of communication. Some women feel that they don't need a man and they are making more money than the man. That is problems right there. A MAN LIKES TO FEEL THAT HE IS IN CHARGE. DON'T MAKE HIM FEEL LESS OF A MAN. That's why there are some many divorced couples around.

      From your comment, you sound like a whor@. Your comment is one sided. Is this what is truly to be spread to the young ones out there. It is very clear that you have a NASTY mind and EVIL heart.

      FACTS: Relationships do NOT fall apart. GREED and EVIL are the bottom line. Nasty whore$ out there enticing men selling their crutches and trying to out-do the WIVES. NO woman can make a man feel like a man. He has his head, the Christ, already for that reason ... to make him feel like a man

      To the adulteresses ...

      FACTS: Bitter Wormwood

      FACTS: Men are shamed of the whore$ that they are with - check the Bible

      FACTS: Men are made in the image of God.

      FACTS: A lot of relationships fall apart because of DEVIL worshippers. Because people out there are full of GREED and EVIL.

      FACTS: Our children practice what they see (not what we tell them)

      Please let's get rid of the Jezebel spirits and demons. Then we will truthfully see the cause of relationships falling down. Satan is very busy with the immoral women. Let's talk that as it is a very problematic matter here in the BVI. It is disgusting to blame women for communication issues when men are the number one's at this. Secondly, it's either an illusion in the man's mind concerning money or greed. Yes, there are men out there with eyes of greed. Do not want to work or help themselves but want to say how the woman must spend the 2 Cents earned. As for being in charge men have been asked to take that position but as usual, they decline. Sounds like you don't know the truth. Sounds like you been lied to. Here the other side of the story with Almighty God as the witness. Yes, both parties to swear to the truth.
