Mercedes’ Story…..

Mercedes E. Wilson brings deliverance through her voice in many ways. Transformational speaker, author, television personality, radio and podcast host, event emcee, and founder of a non-profit, “For Our Daughters” are a few of the ways she brings hope to the masses. She jokingly refers to herself as an “Accidental Evangelist,” because after her breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 28, the desire to help others and live a life of obedience was so heavy that it was like fire shut up in her bones, and she had to release. Every experience, positive or negative, every tear, and every gift given to her by God has been carefully crafted and packaged for the consumption of others so that they too can receive the healing and breakthroughs that she has received, but only if they’re willing to do the work.

Through her non-profit, For Our Daughters Inc, Mercedes has nurtured and equipped 4,000 young women with the tools necessary to have serious conversations about their health. 

Her first book titled: “Hope: How Faith Carried Me Through My Darkest Hours”, has already touched many people across the country. However, “Hope” is more than a book; it is an unfiltered raw love letter to God that not only reveals the inner workings of Mercedes’ heart, but it lends space and instruction for readers to also overcome obstacles in their own lives.

The Mercedes Wilson show delivers a genuine look at the modern church and controversial topics, and is aired on Power 96.5. Mercedes confronts the hard topics head on, but always leaves her listeners with practical takeaways to apply to their lives as they reconcile thousands of years of religion with Jesus’ message of hope and love.

Mercedes has been featured in many publications, including, Buffalo News, BWNY Magazine, Buffalo Healthy Living Magazine, and Housekeeping Magazine online to name a few.  

Out of everything she has accomplished and overcome, Mercedes’ greatest blessing is her amazing husband and four wonderful children. The Lord has repaid her beauty for ashes with her family, and they are her largest compliment and answer to her testimony.  In spite of what your life may look like, hope gives you supernatural vision through your circumstances.
