About the Publisher:

Monica Ware is a mentor, writer, empowerment and inspirational

speaker, certified life coach, wife, mother and she lives and loves

life to the fullest! Monica established Be You! Girl Magazine as a platform for girls to express their gifts, talents, concerns, ideas and creativity. Being creative herself, Monica wanted girls to know without a shadow of doubt that they can do anything when they put their minds to it!

Monica’s love of writing led her to discover her gift of poetry and penning inspirational messages. Her talents and gifts opened the door to create a newsletter for women titled EVE: Empowering Virtue & Excellence. EVE was inspired from Monica’s truthfulness to be honest about her life and the struggles she overcame. Monica likes to say, “I’m not ashamed of anything and I praise God for everything!” The ministry of EVE spanned the globe, encouraging faithful readers in the United States, Europe, and Japan. 


As a Big Brothers-Big Sisters volunteer and youth leader for over 20 years, Monica has served faithfully with children from the nursery to teen ministry. “My passion is working with the youth. I want to encourage them to make good choices in life and not go through the same mistakes I’ve made!” Her passion of working with teenagers and encouraging them to make the right decisions is birthed out of personal experience. Monica overcame sexual abuse and attempted rapes in both high school and college. “I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but my mistakes don’t determine my future! My choices in life determine my future!” 

Originally from Lake Wales, Florida, Monica has lived in Europe and Asia as a proud military wife. She now resides in Tennessee with her husband Nathaniel, three sons.
