About the Author



Antoinette Denise, owner and founder of Dignified by Denise, became concerned by the growing lack of faith that young ladies and women were expressing in not having a partner. She wanted to write a book that would give women comfort and to let them know that through the Grace of God they could have the love they want.

Growing up in various cities in the country, Antoinette Denise learned a lot about life, love, and faith from those around her. She also discovered her fascination with the beauty of everything around her. This led to her interest in fashion, and after graduating from high school Antoinette Denise went on to receive her Associates in Fashion Merchandising from Penn Valley Community College, but Antoinette still wanted to grow and learn, so she added a Bachelors of Science in Home Economics Education through Morris Brown College in Atlanta, GA.

Wanting to be more active in her community, and with a secondary interest in Dietetics and Nutrition, Antoinette Denise began working in leadership positions in local hospitals and in public health as a Public Health Nutritionist before retiring from this position in 2006. She followed this by teaching students at a district High School in Georgia. There she gave budding chefs or those interested in a career in Food or Nutrition an excellent pathway through Food Science and Nutrition classes before retiring from teaching in 2019. 

Currently Antoinette Denise is an Author and has a small e-commerce store. Outside of work she enjoys writing and gardening (especially when she can plant her favorites such as roses and geraniums). She also takes the time to teach sewing or consult with future designers on their sewing projects or clothing lines. Antoinette Denise's favorite book, “The Bluest Eyes” by Toni Morrison, afforded her the opportunity to meet Toni and even become part of the Toni Morrison Society. Her best and happiest moments are, and will always be, spending time with her son, grandson, family and Iyanna.

James 4:6 (NIV) "But He gives more grace. Therefore it says, God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."
