About IGM


Welcome to Inspired Grace Ministries!


Hello! I am glad you’ve stumbled upon my blog! My name is Dr. Charis M. Rooks “Doc”, and boy do I have a story to share. I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandmother, auntie, writer, graduate business professor, entrepreneur (media publishing, consultancy sector, ministry, and the transportation and logistics industries), published author, speaker, and more. My favorite hat to wear, however, is that of God's daughter. I work to reflect HIM in everything that I do and share HIS truth with everyone that I meet.

As a woman, I have struggled in life to get to where I am. I have been suicidal, divorced twice, evicted, lost everything, suffered from depression, and anxiety, and on top of all of that I have also suffered from low self-esteem, and physical, and emotional abuse. However, none of those prepared me for the grief I am currently enduring after my mother passed away unexpectedly in her sleep. Yes, I am the official definition of a heartbroken woman. I have worked, I have struggled, and continue to persevere through it all only by the grace of God, my family, and those around me. Now it is time to share my story and experience to help others.

I am the wife of an amazing husband named Kent and he teaches me the importance of restoration and healing daily. We have been blessed because God restored our marriage which was broken for 10 years. I am a mom and nana to my two amazing daughters and my grandson. My oldest daughter Briana teaches me strength and perseverance as I have been blessed to stand by her side as she gave birth at the age of 16 to my wonderful grandson Xavier. I have watched her beat all odds and grow into a wonderful mother and now a college student. Xay teaches me to be fearless and confident as he has no limits to what he can and will do as a 6-year-old he is confident in his choices and stands strong in them even if he knows his nana and popa might fuss at him. My youngest daughter Katelyn teaches me faith and hope as I have been blessed to stand by her side as she continues her journey in life of having an incurable brain malformation and many other obstacles involving her health. Katelyn always smiles and stands firm on loving and helping others despite her personal circumstances.

I have endured a lot of rough struggles that life has thrown at me, and I have held strong (only by the grace of God) and maintained my faith in God through it all. During the lowest times, I was weak and ready to throw in the towel, but I refused to give up, and now I stand regardless of my circumstances ready to help others by sharing my testimony.

This blog will serve as a safe place, a haven of sorts, where I can share my stories with you, the reader. I will share my triumphs, I will share my struggles, and I will share my truth no matter how difficult it may be. I want nothing more than to tell you the stories that have made me the person I am today and perhaps give you a place to share your thoughts as well.

I will blog mainly on encouragement for Kingdom Writers. I will also blog on a wide range of topics, as it is never one story that makes a person, from divorce, remarriage, parenting a child with an incurable brain malformation, parenting a pregnant teenager, being a grandparent, entrepreneur, kingdom writer, business professor, and a heartbroken daughter who lost and misses her mother. Most importantly, however, I have been a woman who through it all, saw that there was a light at the end of it all and saw that through faith, God has good things for me.

I hope that you will join me now as I share my stories in the hopes that they bring inspiration to someone who may be struggling to get through this challenging journey we call life.
