About The Author
Selena Holston Gabriel is a Christian author, children's advocate, international relief and missions mobilizer, community organizer, speaker & leader.
Selena is devoted to the global health and welfare of children and is an advocate of children's rights. She has served children and families on the front lines of international relief work, compassionate ministry, global missions partnerships, and community development projects in the U.S. and throughout Latin America for many years. Her work has focused on therapy for malnourished children, providing safe parks and play spaces, clean water projects, organizing medical missions, constructing schools and churches, and much more . Along the way, she discovered the disparities against the global poor are great, but disparities against girls and women in those same contexts are even greater. 1-in-2 girls worldwide are at-risk.
Selena wrote Heaven's Royalty, That's Me™ to affirm the beauty, authenticity, and inherent worth of GIRLS all over the GLOBE and to embolden each one to use her gifts and strengths to make a compassionate difference in the world. Heaven’s RoyalTEA™ is an event series that Selena created to share the message and mission of her book. Heaven’s RoyalTEA™ is a seated, afternoon tea with treats, light lunch, and features a full program including a dramatic monologue of Heaven’s Royalty, That’s Me!™. These ticketed events are hosted in partnership with churches, schools, and Christian groups. Teas are primarily for girls, women’s groups, or “Moms & Daughters,” and encourage them to lead with their God-given strengths and anchor their worth in Christ. Heaven’s Royalty Traveling Tea™ is a pop-up tea and author’s signing. Pop-up teas are available for schools, churches, and other groups.
Selena holds a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Leadership and has served as an Associate Pastor with Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene (PazNaz), as Haiti Programs Director with Converge, and as Founder, Director and Community Transformation Specialist with Compassion Creates Change. She especially loves hanging out with her daughter (Micah) and husband (Glenn).
