Meet Mary Hale


Retired State Employee, wife, mother, and grandmother, Mary Hale can now add author to her list of titles. She is the proud award winning published author of the Speak to My Heart Series (click the tab for more information).

Born in Memphis, TN, Mary has always enjoyed the arts. When she’s not taking care of her family, you can find her reading, writing or listening to music. Her favorite book is the Bible; her favorite artist is Marvin Sapp. Like his song states, she believes that without God, she “Never Would’ve Made It” this far in her life’s journey.

Mary believes that we are all commissioned to minister God’s word. Real Women Wear Red Shoes is her ministerial contribution. Founded in 2005, the purpose of Real Women Wear Red Shoes was to encourage those who participated in the five-fold ministry (apostles; prophets; evangelists; teachers; pastors). With each year, the focus transitioned. No longer solely geared to those with ministerial titles, Mary’s ministry assists everyday people who seek empowerment and encouragement. She will host her next conference in Chicago in 2019. Be on the lookout for details!
