13-Time World Boxing Hall of Fame Multi-Weight Champion & devout mother of two. See more here: http://torishonuffnelson.com/
Tori Nelson, gives hope to single mothers. Her hard work, dedication and motto --"suck it up" -- seem to help her persevere in balancing her dream career in boxing as well as taking care of her two teenage children. Tori Nelson first started boxing at the age of 29, but in her pursuit for the championship Nelson's journey is not so easy. Nelson is a single mother working three jobs; she works as a school bus driver, cafeteria worker and an IHOP waitress, and maintains all three while taking care of her children. "It's hard," says Nelson, "Especially doing it by myself because I don't get enough time to raise my own kids, but I just suck it up... because I know I got two mouths I got to feed." Nelson squeezes her training time in between jobs. Craig Fladager, Nelson's professional coach and manager, says, "God does extraordinary things through ordinary people, and this is a prime example of that." July 29, 2011, in the fifth fight of her career, Nelson won the World Boxing Council (WBC) Women's Middle Weight title. On February 11, 2012 she went on to unanimously win the coveted WIBA Middleweight title belt. Tori “Sho-Nuff” Nelson dropped to the Welterweight class to win the WIBA belt in September 2013. She feels that she will not be able to reach her full potential while balancing everything in her life. She says, "Until that time comes I just have to keep going, suck it up and keep going." Tori, alone, must work three minimum paying jobs (waitress, bus driver, cafeteria worker) to support her two children and to fulfill her dream to remain the #1 Women's Middleweight boxing champ in the world.

When I say I woke up this morning feeling different is an understatement. Jesus has been working in me in so many ways even after I've let him down in so many occasions. But this morning his spirit was on me so strong and then I was led to watch the amazing Dr. Maya Angelou. While she was speaking and I was feeling God's presence even more on me as I was hanging on every word she was saying tears were falling uncontrollably down my face I felt that today is my day of a new ME. A changed life forever. And as I didn't realize I had been locked in on her and God's word for 1 1/2 hrs. crying and praying and thanking God and Jesus for me to hear her this morning. I know I'm about to be just who God put me here to be.
I just had to share with you all. ...and its strange because I'm a personal person but God made me let yall in on Tori Nelson's Sunday morning today. Love you and stay Blessed and PRAYED up
[05/27/20] I really can't take anymore of this. Something has to give. It's hard to keep my good relationship with God when these police officers are killing our Black males and if it's not them then they allowing white men to kill them without punishment unless it goes viral. It's hard to keep my clean relationship with God because of this. I know it's bad to say and I know some people may feel different about me after this but you have to understand I have Black male son brothers and man that I have to worry about even if they just going out to workout. I feel that it would change if Black males were killing white males things would change ASAP. And I feel the only way they will stop if someone from that Black male family came to that white family house and killed them or their son brother or father they would see how bad it hurts and stop it. But with all that said... PLEASE BLACK MEN WE NEED YOU AND YOUR LIFE TRULY MATTERS! SO PLEASE PLEASE BE CAREFUL OUT THERE. PRAYING for all the families that has lost their love ones behind this foolishness. Smh. Kids supposed to feel safe and protected by police not scared of them. SMH

[02/02/20] Good morning Blessed Ones! Ok this is for us all. We want everything right away. If we do something different for a week wr want to see different results but we have to realize that it didn't take only a week to get what we got or where we are. If you want a microwave life keep being impatient and doing it your way but if you want change then pray be patient and wait on God. But while we are waiting and praying work on making the change and he will definitely help us. So don't stay stuck where you are that's not where you suppose to be. Always push for better! Be patient and watch how you will be Blessed!
What is the Best resort to visit in Hawaii. That has fun things to do like jet skiing etc....
Good morning blessed ones!
When God says YES
It doesn't matter what others say
Be Blessed Enjoy your YES
[01/30/20] Good morning blessed ones! Ok guys sit back and think how you treat people. (Especially when you mad) what if Jesus treat you the same way that you treated someone else. What if he gave you revenge like you plotted on someone else. Think about it! So do unto others as you want done to you. Treat people good. And if they do something to you don't try and revenge them...God got that part and it will be way more hurtful than what you can do. So love yourself and each other. (This is for us all. God is still working on all of us) 😉 Be Blessed and have a great safe productive day
