Hello, thanks for visiting my website! I am Catherine L. Newsome, and I help women in Ministry, Leadership and Business reveal their 'unique' identity, purpose, and destiny so that they can live fulfilled and successful lives. It is through speaking, teaching, coaching, and empowerment events that my mission is accomplished.


I am the Founder and Coach of 5-Star Lady Corporation/Catherine Empowers, Inc., a global Speaking, Life Coaching, and Empowerment business for women. I am the visionary of the popular and powerful 5-Star Lady Empowerment (a 1-2 Day Women's Empowerment Event). I am the Founder and Instructor of True Identity (TID) Academy; an online School of Identity where I offer courses that empower women to walk in their unique identity, fulfill their purpose and live their dreams. I am a published author of a book titled "Fatherless to FATHERED!" Fatherless to FATHERED is a book written from my personal testimony to help fatherless children heal from rejection, abandonment, and an identity crisis. This book is designed to show others the goodness of God as a Father. I have 25-plus years of experience in leadership roles in ministry and as an entrepreneur. I am also well-respected amongst my peers.


I received my Christian Life Coaching Certification from Breakpoint Coaching Collective under the instruction of Dr. Patrice J. Carter. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Business Administration from Winston-Salem State University and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Religious Studies from North Carolina Wesleyan College. I'm currently enrolled at Liberty University pursuing a Master's Degree in Psychology (Human Services Counseling - Specializing in Life Coaching). I received an Honorary Doctorate degree in Theology from Bible Faith Global University.


Along with my husband, I am the Senior Leader of Impact Church Goldsboro and the Owner/Real Estate Broker of Kingdom Properties Realty, LLC (KP Realty) in the city of Goldsboro NC. I have one daughter and two sons.
