It is with great pleasure that I design and dedicate this website to my mother, Bettye G. DeKeyzer. In these pages you will meet and glimpse the wit, wisdom, insight, artistry, creativity and talents of a true renaissance woman.

She'll no doubt roll her eyes at being tagged a renaissance woman, but it fits. A true renaissance woman is someone who sets her own agenda for personal achievement and will not allow herself to be manipulated or intimidated. She understands that she has been created for such a time as this and embraces her destiny as a challenge and not a curse, no matter what age or position or circumstance. She is a winner not a whiner, a leader not a follower, a victor, not a victim --- and that's who we call "Mama"

Bettye Groves DeKeyzer

If you want to be successful, it's just this simple.
Know what you are doing.
Love what you are doing.
And believe in what you are doing.
