My name is Lady LaDale L. Whaley, and I am the visionary for Kingdom Sisterhood Leading Ladies Society. Kingdom Sisterhood was birthed from a desire to create a network, a "sisterhood" of women I could connect with as the wife of a Man of God.
For years I prayed and asked God to send me women in my life that understood what it meant to hold this role, held the same role themselves, or knew the difficulties that came along with being a woman in ministry.
I began to pray and search the word for answers, not really sure what might be the outcome. What was it God had for me? Who would connect with me for me, not my role? Who would let me be me?
For months I could not escape Matthew 6:33. As I studied, I began to write, as I wrote, I began to see. The vision began to unfold right in front of me. I wasn't the only WOG who needed an outlet. And I certainly wasn't the only one who loved ministry but needed an outlet that allowed me to be me.
Thus the idea of Kingdom Sisterhood was born. A group of women with similar/common interest that holds a special role in the Kingdom of God. Women who love and care for the Men of God, women who serve as leaders to the people of God, and women who support and serve the leaders in ministry. All coming together, to love, encourage, inspire, empower, and share life with each other.
Kingdom Sisterhood: Leading Ladies Society
This group of women, are WOG I will seek out to unite on various occasions. A society of women, who will come together to encourage one another, support one another, enjoy life with one another, and most of all grow together in love as a "Sisterhood!" This is a group where titles are respected and upheld, however, it is not required.
I asked God how would I bring these women together, He simply told me to use the things I know, and enjoy as a woman. The things that are sometimes enjoyed with my sisters!
So I began with this page to share my thoughts and idea as an introduction. A Facebook page, and additional social media outlets to connect with WOG. A list of participants who will receive a personal invitation to join the group. Participants will be able to look forward to:
- Social Media Interactions
- Virtual Meetups/Chats
- Local Meetups
- Annual Retreat/ "Ladies Trip"
- Get-a-way Weekends
- Charitable Events
- Community Service Projects
All interactions will allow the women to enjoy life together, and briefly escape their busy schedules. Ultimately giving the some... ME TIME!
Now that I have shared my vision with you, I invite you to take this journey with me as I allow God to lead me to build the Kingdom Sisterhood Leading Ladies Society.

Community Projects & Supporting Charities...
Not only will the Kingdom Sisterhood come together to enjoy life. We will also support local and national charities. This will allow us to support our community, as we continue to build the Kingdom of God. By supporting local and national charities we seek to participate in events, as well as volunteer, participate, and support women connect to these charities. Charities in which we will support include:
Local Food Banks
Kingdom Sisterhood will work to help feed families and those battling homelessness. Thus working with local food banks, as well as soup kitchens to provide, serve or deliver meals to those needing help.
St. Jude Children's Home
Although St. Jude's is for children, those children have mothers, who need support and encouragement. Therefore, Kingdom Sisterhood will plan times to minister to the mothers faced with the struggle of sick children and are in need of prayer, encouragement, love, and support.
Not commonly identified or recognized, Sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disease in which granulomas, or clumps of inflammatory cells, form in various organs. Life-threatening situations in sarcoidosis are extremely rare. They may be due to the failure of vital organs--lungs, heart, kidney, liver, and brain--and usually due to irreversible fibrosis. More common in African Americans, Sarcoidosis is a disease many not some or nothing about.
The Kingdom Sisterhood will work to raise awareness and support, plan events designed to educate, encourage, and inspire women who are faced with this battle, or their loved ones who support them, and most of all love on those who have lost their battle. Each year we will honor WOG starting 2018.
2018 We Honor...
- DeLoris Burton-Boykin - DeLoris was not only a beatific WOG and Leading Lady, but also the mother to the visionary of this great journey, Lady LaDale L Whaley. DeLoris lost her battle to Sarcoidosis at an early age of 33 years young. Thus leaving a husband and three children to carry on her legacy. Many knew her for her work in the church, but most of all for her creative work making bulletins and booklets, leading the youth, and most of all the leading the young ladies of the Hattie Jackson Guild Girls. Although her time on this earth was short, her work reflects in Lady Whaley's work.
Breast Cancer Awareness
In honor of WOG who have survived, are battling, or have lost their battle against breast cancer the Kingdom Sisterhood will plan events designed to educate, encourage, and inspire women who are faced with this battle, or their loved ones who support them, and most of all love on those who have lost their battle. Each year we will honor WOG starting 2018.
As our chapters form and grow, we will continue to add honorees each year.
Lupus is often an illness overlooked. There is no physical way to often identify a woman who suffers from this disease. As with other charities, Kingdom Sisterhood will plan events designed to educate, encourage, and inspire women who are faced with this battle, or their loved ones who support them, and most of all love on those who have lost their battle. Each year we will honor WOG starting 2018.
2018 We Honor...
