Yolanda Adams recently chatted with MadameNoire.com for the site's weekly column, RESET, to talk about spirituality, what matters most in her life, and how the Grammy Award-winning gospel singer defines success.
"Success to me is being able to build a business empire and brand on my terms. I am self-employed and travel often. The most important message is for my daughter to know that she is loved. Also, I make all the important events for her — honor society induction, PTA meetings and so forth. I love being a mom and cherish my daughter. Success is also having a happy daughter from the inside and out," Adams said before adding that she can't live without God or her 13-year-old daughter, Taylor.
Adams also shares how she juggles motherhood, career, and growing her new beauty line, Simply Yolanda.
"I celebrate life and thank God for the challenges and blessings. Everything in life works, when it doesn't, that means it's time to press RESET. Simply celebrate all the blessings, which might be small. However your faith will make them big. Learn from the lessons."
