I recently had the pleasure of chatting with Dr. Kellie Agueze, founder of Warrior Apparel, and it was truly an inspiration to my soul.
Dr. Agueze has an extensive background in Nursing; earning her Doctor of Nursing Practice Degree in 2014, a few years before she was called to return to school to earn her Master of Arts in Theological studies in 2017.
When she started sharing her recordings of her praying on Facebook in 2016, they immediately went viral. Dr. Agueze knew that God was calling her to teach, so she answered that call and returned to school. She knew on the very first day of seminary that she was exactly where she was supposed to be.
Eventually, Dr. Agueze left both of her jobs and stepped out on faith to open Warrior Apparel; which is a family-and-community business. It all started with one t-shirt, “I believe in miracles.” At the time she started promoting the shirt, she did not even have the funds to print. She posted it on Facebook, and the sales were phenomenal! She grossed $1.3 Million within the first year. Talk about God’s favor!!! Today, Warrior Apparel has a variety of unique and stylish apparel.
Initially ispired by her love for long-distance running; Aqueze, recently, rebranded her Warrior Fitness Apparel. She wanted to create something that was different and added scripture on the fitness gear. They have many great styles with lots of flavor.
Her mornings start at 4 a.m., when she rises to pray, prepare, and set the atmosphere for the 6 a.m. Global Prayer Movement (which is live on Ministry Warrior Nation Facebook, YouTube and Instagram). This mandate is to bring prayer back to the nation, and the nation back to their knees. May I say, her prayers are fire? At the end of our call she prayed for me, touched on many things that inspired me and agreed with what I had been praying for.
Her book, “When God is Silent,” walks you through when you feel like you’re praying, and God is on vacation. It is a reminder to keep pressing, and continue to worship God. There is so much strength in the wait. We may not have the capacity at the moment, but we must persist in prayer and celebrate the wait. God answers every single prayer, and it is better than expected.
Dr. Agueze inspires us to celebrate where we are in life, and to go after the one who holds our destiny in His hands. Everything we need is in the hands of Jesus. You cannot lose going after God. She reminds us that God expresses Himself differently through different people, so never downplay your ministry. Do not be afraid of when it gets hard, because if it does not cost you anything you will not value it.
