About CEO and Founder


About CEO and Founder
Reverend Natasha Harper is a wife and a mother to three children, two step-children and one adopted son. Kymberly, the eldest, Clifton also known as "Gee", named after his father, passed away December 8, 2015 and little Dominick is the baby of the family.

Reverend Harper rededicated her life to the Lord after her son passed away in December of 2015 and later became an Ordained Minister. She was raised Southern Baptist her entire life, and although she knew religion, she struggled with her relationship with God. Reverend Harper was born in Lake Charles, La. but was raised on a small island named Isle de Jean Charles as a child, being one of 13 children. She later moved to the nearby town of Houma, La. but she now resides in Roanoke, Va. where she lives with her husband and son Dominick. Reverend Harper ministers to a local group home for troubled children every third Sunday of the month where she spends time with children that are headed down the same path she once was in hopes that her testimony will prevent the next generation from making the same mistakes. One of many missions Reverend Harper devotes time to is spreading awareness of suicide and suicide prevention to the community and working dilegently to remove the stigma attached to mental health illness. Doing so she works closely with The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is on the walk committee which holds an Out of the Darkness walk every October. She also has begun hosting the Roanoke/Salem's Survivor's Day, where millions of people come together on one day in November to honor their loved one that they have lost to death by suicide.

Her passion is God, family, ministry and activism. She is a the founder of Roanoke Jail Solidarity. An organization in which her sons death has inspired her to become allies with inmates in hopes to help those who are unfairly treated and unjustly held in a cage pretrial. Reverend Harper teamed up with a local organization called the Roanoke Peoples' Power Network and together they have created the areas very first community bail fund.

Reverend Harper has overcome many obsticles in her life including sexual abuse, a young wife, divorce, prison, infertility after 2 ectopic pregnancies, she has battled uterine cancer, 2 hip surgeries, brain surgery and several more surgeries scheduled due to a rare form of rhumetoid arthritis. But, through it all, she has remained faithful. She refusses to be a victim, instead she is victorious. Reverend Harper is a survivor, a testimony that has and will continue to change lives forever. She uses those testimonies to empower people, proving to others that God has the power to change people through His grace and mercy. Reminding people that what the enemy meant for evil, God will turn it around for their good if we just hold on to hope, that grain of mustard seed.

She wasn't always a Reverend. She dropped out of school in the 8th grade. She later got her G.E.D and went to college earning her degree in Practical Nursing while working as a CNA during those two years. She has a passion for the elderly community and visits a local nursing home in the area to spread the gospel. She had brain surgery January of 2016 and since then man has claimed her dissabled, but God, He is using her in a powerful way. Although Reverend Harper may never get to practice nursing again due to the permanent damage to her memory, she stays positive and grounded in the Word of God. In fact, she uses everything she has been through to further empower herself and others. She is such a power house of inspiration to many, all of her time dedicated to volunteering, guest speaking, and mentoring is all done for free or a small fee because she believes the Word of God should not have a price tag and should be spread amoungst all because it is what she is called to do!

Bio "Feel My Real Ministry"


Bio "Feel My Real Ministry"
Feel My Real Ministry came to life on February 20, 2016. Myself and a good friend from church, Vanessa Flemming, had a vision. God had shown us our purpose so we wrote it down and made the vision plain.

We came up with the name one day on our way to minister to a local group home. We were trying to figure out something new we could do with the children, something "hip and cool", so we came up with the slogan feel my real. We really were using it in terms of being transparent with them and not so much like the rest of the adults they encountered daily. It was a hit!!!

Thats when we decided that Feel My Real would be the perfect name for our ministry. A change came with the ministry when God showed Vanessa that she needed to focus on a book she had been writting for years. So I prayed about it and God instructed me to allow Him to finish what He started. I remained obediant and continued to allow God to use me and WOW is He using me! I vowed to give it my all, in honor of my son Gee, and do whatever it takes to suceed at building Gods Kingdom. For me, this ministry wouldnt be what it is if it wasn't for my sons death. So in a way it's a way to pay tribute to him and give back to the community on his behalf. I speak at schools on suicide prevention, bullying and removing the stigma attached to mental health illness. I minister in youth detention centers and prisons. I volunteer at the homeless shelter and spend time with the homeless community to see how I can better help facilitate with resource help and in return reduce the local homeless population.

Feel My Real means exactly what it says. It means transparency, truth, hope and understanding. This Ministry is a faith based ministry, I speak often on faith and what it takes to build your faith. I don't minister or share religion, I minister and teach about relationship. That's what it's really about! Not structure and order that says you have to wear this and can't look like this, that is religion. Relationship is personal, it's intimate and special. When speaking on building a relationship with God I often refer to my husband. How could I have a 14 year reltionship of love, trust, knowledge of who he is, if I never spoke to him and asked him about his life and interest? How would it last if the only way I knew anything about him was by a book that was written by family, friends and foes? It's the same way with God, He wants you to ask Him questions, get to know Him on a personal level so you can build trust, love and knowledge. Reading the Bible is a good start but we can't, as sinful humans, expect to grow in love and trust just by reading the Bible, we need to pray! Speak to Him! Get to know God for yourself, I promise, He will embrace you with open arms. Go ahead, it's never too late!

When I do video ministry, I go live on periscope (@Feel My Real) and also on the ministry facebook page, then upload those videos to my youtube channel. Don't forget to subscribe please!
