Talya Parker, is the Founder and CEO of Dope Wives LLC. The birth of DW was inspired shortly after Talya said, “I Do” on February 23rd, 2014. She entered this beautiful union with high expectations of a smooth ride but was forced to quickly cope with her new reality. Talya’s faith is what kept her centered and as a result, birthed the desire to enrich and empower millennial wives to be intentional about pursuing a Christ Centered Marriage.
Talya has been married for three years to her wonderful husband and college sweetheart, Dwayne. For many she is daughter, sister, mentor, mentee, civic leader and friend. The role that she finds most honorable comes from the one who call’s her WIFE. This platform inspires, brings healing, builds community and encourages other wives to be intentional about biblical approaches to marriage.
“I can still remember that strange feeling from being in a new city with no family, no friends, married but extremely lonely. I had no idea that God was building something so beautiful from such a dark place. Dope Wives has been one of the best things to happen to me and my marriage, God is crazy faithful. I believe marriage needs community to survive. It’s a breath of fresh air to be amongst other couples who are Christ driven and intentional in their marriage, it’s contagious and a continuous conviction on your thoughts and actions that are not pleasing to God or your marriage”
