During her time in the marketplace, she worked has a concierge in various hotels and worked with handicap children. 

Eddie Rene Williams became a member of the Metropolitan Baptist Church

She served in the Ushers and Repast ministries. She enjoyed serving the Lord in these ministries. We believe the Movie War Room was inspired by her and many others who practiced knee logy.   She truly was a prayer warrior.   We believe God have some prayers bottled up for her to be release in the near future for her family. We believe prayer do not have an expiration date.

She had a book published which headline “Literacy Success Story” in the Star-ledger.    The autobiography of a woman who did not quit in learning how to read.  The book was called My Story.
