Since the age of 11, Timothy has asked the question, ‘why’. Whether it was why he had to perform a task a certain way or why people believed what they believed, he desired to understand the mechanism behind the belief. This deep curiosity led him on a path to discover what life, love, and happiness was truly about. Like the majority of individuals, Timothy’s path of discovery began in the religious arena. This is where he was instructed that all the answers to his questions about life could be found. At the age of 15, Timothy became a youth minister and placed himself in the position to receive mentorship from his church elders. He studied hard and was known for his undying inquisitiveness. Although Timothy achieved respect amongst his peers, his penetrating questions about life had yet to be answered. Therefore he decided to attend the American Baptist College, Moody Bible Institute, and later Jacksonville Theological Seminary, in which he received his degrees in Theology and Education and obtained his PhD in Christian Psychology.
Timothy had three degrees, yet he still felt that there had to be something more. He began to notice that although people had their respective religions they still lacked one important aspect, joy. He knew this because he himself lacked joy. He then decided that he needed to search outside the walls of religion. Thus, his journey of spiritual enlightenment began.During Timothy’s quest he discovered that the lack of joy and the void in people’s lives stemmed from the judgmental thoughts they had toward themselves and toward others. In other words, people were deficient of love. [Love of self and love of others.] This very love is the reason he founded the Leadership Institute for Transformation and Empowerment (L.I.T.E.) along with his wife Jiquay Glenn. L.I.T.E., located in Jackson, Tn., is a community, based organization that focuses on equipping individuals with information that is relevant to their current situation. Timothy and Jiquay work together to teach principles of meditation, self reflection, self observation, love of self, and others. Timothy is an upcoming visionary strategist for the West Tennessee area and is currently working on his much anticipated book. He, along with his wife, currently facilitates the Language of Life, a monthly community event they designed to discuss the issues that prevent individuals from achieving success, happiness, and living life to its fullest potential.
“The light of knowledge and understanding has the potential to guide mankind into a more advanced state of consciousness. It is our intention to be but a shadow within this light to share with the world in a time of extreme darkness. If you can hear this call within you continue exploring with us. If you choose to ignore this call, continue to sleep in peace.” -Timothy
Jiquay Glenn is the Co-Founder of Leadership Institute for Transformation and Empowerment located in Jackson, Tn. She has dedicated the last 13 years to teaching spiritual principles that empower individuals to take responsibility for the creation of their own lives. Jiquay fervently believes that living from ones authentic self is the true key to a whole and fulfilling life. Since the age of 5 Jiquay has been groomed to embody the role of a leader by volunteering for leadership roles at church, to quickly climbing the ranks in Air Force R.O.T.C., and later serving her country in the United States Army. No matter what endeavor she pursued her natural ability to lead shined through.
Before she discovered her passion as a life mentor, she obtained a degree in Criminology & Criminal Justice with an emphasis in legal thought from the University of Memphis. During that time she mastered her critical thinking, logic, and conflict resolution skills which she uses daily to inspire her clients to transform their lives. While in college Jiquay received her ministerial license from I. J. Ministries and founded Destiny Place (now Leadership Institute for Transformation and Empowerment) with her husband in 2001. Later, realizing the limitations that the institution of religion embodied and having been inspired by her husband, Jiquay began to branch out and study other modes of spirituality. This mutual branching out led to the birth of Leadership Institute for Transformation and Empowerment, a community based organization that focuses on equipping individuals with information that is relevant to their current situation. Jiquay and Timothy work together to teach principles of meditation, self reflection, self observation, love of self and others. Jiquay, along with her husband facilitate the Language of Life, a monthly community event they designed to discuss the issues that prevent individuals from achieving success, happiness, and living life to its fullest potential.
The driving force behind Jiquay’s passion is seeing the depth of low self esteem and lack of self love that people were unaware they carried through life. Jiquay observed herself (and others) walking through the routine of life not acknowledging the level of unhappiness and pain that was inside. “We are not taught to question why we feel a certain way or believe a particular belief. We are taught to cheer up, count our blessings, and distract ourselves with mundane things along the way. We must learn to question everything. The second I asked myself why, my entire life shifted and led me on this path of auto-didactic spirituality.

Teresa has had her hand in several startups since leaving her career of 14 years to include one of her most innovative and lucrative ideas, WILstyle. A company she started in an effort to transform women’s lives by addressing the necessity to clean/organize their closet. A metaphor she uses to coach women on the need to make room for new beginnings, take risks and live a fully attainable life. Her motto is, “ Too much clutter in your closet means too much clutter in your life.”
Teresa Lugo’s life started in her twenties as a model. She worked in corporate America for 10 years. Realizing she was o she decided to open her own boutique, her true passion. In 1996, she opened her first store. La Femmena Boutique which became Oak Park’s number one consignment boutique known for its high end selections. Four years later she opened her second store, E’Stylo Boutique. It became the boutique that really shook the dust off of the street for the trendy clothing she brought in from Los Angeles. She started the “Can’t Wear It and Share It” Campaign to aid financially challenged families in sending their daughter to college. Women would bring their designer clothes to her Consignment shop and all donations would go to that fund. “I loved retail but one day realized that my home was out of order…so I sold one store and closed the other to stay home and be emotionally available for my teenage son.”
Today she volunteers for a women’s center and aids them with money from financial donors. She also works as a Personal Wardrobe Consultant for Neiman Marcus. Her truest passion, however, is to be a part of the “Shift” that is truly needed in this world. “I decided to in order to fulfill this dream and be respected in this industry, I needed to be certified as a Life Coach. I enjoy aiding those that really want to find their true purpose and passion in their lives! I do this by way of workshops and hands on one on one consultations. We must clear out the clutter in our spirits in order to bring out our beauty, physically as well as emotionally! I really get that a woman wears so many different hats in life and yet still wants to look and feel beautiful doing it, but I also have male clients who desire a more put together look, also!!”
