LaToya, tell us about yourself.
My name is LaToya Gay and I am 31 year old wife of almost 7 years to my wonderful husband Joseph and mother of 4 of the most awesome kids.
I am the founder of VirtuallyNSync, LLC, (founded in November 2012) previously known as a resource for VA’s and Work at Home Moms but recently changed the direction of my career and after much prayer decided to close down that part of my business to focus on my ministry. With my newest book series Born 2 Be Different releasing in 2015, I want young women who are dealing with low self worth and self-esteem to understand that they are not alone.
After having several health issues with my last pregnancy in 2009 and with the support of my husband, I was able to leave her full time job and become a full time stay at home mother. This was definitely a huge decision for our family and a journey that challenged me to launch out into the deep. I am very passionate about helping young women push through their doubts and chase after their dreams by accepting the purpose for their life and realizing that they were created to stand out from the crowd and live life differently. In addition to launching her business. I have been featured in an interview with Tamyka Washington of Marketing her Way, Nominated for “Woman of the Year” with WERock Awards, Nominated for “Leading mom in business” with StartUpNation and featured in an interview with Leslie Truex of Work at Home Success.
I am on fire for Christ and as a licensed and ordained minister, have made it my personal mission to help young women Be, Live and Do Life Differently while making a Kingdom Impact. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, singing and whatever the future holds for our family. .
How do you find time to connect with God?
WIth 4 children and a very busy house, I find time to connect with God when my children are sleep, when they are down for a nap and set aside a few minutes in my day to praise my father for the blessings that he has bestowed my family.
Finding time to connect with God is not just a want it’s a must for our family.

Tell us about your journey to publication.
I always loved to write. I just didn’t believe in myself enough to publish my work. However, in 2012, I published my first book “Who says you can’t work from home?” after becoming a stay at home mother/wife and experiencing the headache of scams and loss of money.
Now that I am taking an entirely different direction in my life, I know God has destined for me to impact the lives of young women across the world. To show them that they are beautiful and wonderfully made to change the world.
What do each of these 14 women have in common?
They each have a powerful story of how they OVERCAME the odds of the WORLD to make a KINGDOM impact.
Each woman has a different yet powerful testimony that will allow young women to understand that they are NOT alone.
We have all been through disappointments, struggles, pain,hurt and so many setback in life.
However, it is these very setbacks and “tests” that help us grow and accept that we were called to stand out, be different and make a difference in God’s Kingdom.
As young women, we often have low self-esteem, low self-worth and have accepted the LIE that we will NEVER overcome our failures, our past and our pain. This is NOT TRUE! You are beautiful, You are different and you were born 2 be different!
Born 2 Be Different is a 4 part book series that targets young women and men under the ages of 30 years old. Our first book is set to launch in February 2015 and is dedicated to every young girl across the nation.
How did you come up with ideas for this book?
God gave me this beautiful idea. I was so afraid to move forward at first but he gave me a peace that challenged me to move outside of my comfort zone and be the butterfly he has called to be. I am just accepting my assignment.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
I want the youth to understand that they are so valuable. That there were created to be different, to stand out and be the change that so many non-believers need to see.
I also want them to know that they are loved, cherished and that their lives matter. Their dreams matter and God loves them just the way he created them. In his Image.
What’s next for you?
We have our second book in this 4 part book series for men coming up in May 2015. We are very excited about this book project and the lives that will be impacted.
Please tell us where we can connect with you online.
