An attitude of cynicism toward elected officials pervades our nation. Politicians often promise a better future: a new program, a revamped program, lower taxes, better healthcare, better schools, new roads, and something for everyone. But when our politicians get caught doing something unethical, they consult their publicists, attorneys, party leaders—and at some point before the dam of public opinion spills onto their chances of not getting re-elected—the guilty official denies any wrongdoing or makes a weak excuse or perhaps a tearful apology. And then the murmurs begin. Together we decide we voted for the candidate who lied the best, which in turn ignites the attitude of pessimism not only toward the officials, but toward our country and its future.
Mavian Arocha-Rowe is known as an asset to the business and communications industry and is motivating and advocating “your authenticity should be your strategy,” for all women, regardless of their season and roles. For the past 20 years she has directed magazines, plus multiple art and marketing departments as creative director and brand manager. What supersedes all of her great career moves is her role as wife and mother living in Atlanta. Challenging herself to discover and bravely pursue the calling for her life, Arocha-Rowe helps other women discover and pursue their life’s assignment. She is a passionate, and loud-laughing speaker on the topic of purposefully redeemed, and mentors young women so they can exercise a mind that is doctrinally pure, along with a heart that beats toward sanctification. She will almost never turn down Marlow’s Tavern double-tavern cheeseburger, a cooking-demonstration from Leaning Ladder, or any opportunity to head to Miami to spend time with family.
