Hi and thanks for visiting! My name is Angelique Cooper McGlotten. I’m a daughter, wife, mother, sister, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, godmother, and friend. But I’m best described as a grateful child of God living to make His name great.
If you asked me what I do, I’d tell you that I teach, mentor, and volunteer in a variety of capacities. I also write poetry and prose. If you said, Angelique what do you most enjoy doing?, I’d respond that whether it’s lending a helping hand, sending a greeting card out of the blue, or picking up thoughtful gifts for others, I love to give. I also love, love, love being used as a channel of God’s grace to bless people. Because I absolutely enjoy encouraging others, my husband and children affectionately call me “Triple E” (Encourager, Edifier, and Exhorter). In fact, Living Backward is birthed from my desire to inspire others to live out God’s plan for their lives and in so doing experience contentment, genuine success, and lasting significance.
Born in Liberia, West Africa, my amazing parents raised my siblings and me in a warm and loving environment. I enjoyed an idyllic childhood until my family was forced to flee our home as a result of a coup d’état. We resettled in the U.S. I studied psychology at the University of Virginia and am an ardent student of God’s Word.
When not writing or studying, I relish time with my family. I also enjoy reading, listening to worship music, playing drums in the praise and worship band at church (where my husband is the senior pastor), journaling, exercising, and capturing memories. I cherish living this adventure of life with my fantastic husband Kyle and the three terrific gems entrusted to us by God: Jared, Jordan, and Chayil. My family resides in northern Virginia.
My Invitation To You
Each of us is on a path that is taking us somewhere. Moment-by-moment, day-by-day, we build our lives and shape our eternal future. What are you building with your life? Do you know where you’re headed? And do the things in which you’re investing time, energy, and money really matter? Life is fleeting. We get only one opportunity to make our mark. And we don’t have time on our hands. True progress is using our gifts and talents to fulfill our unique purpose and becoming all we were created to be—not simply checking off the boxes or leading a busy life. When we engage life with a reverse orientation of time elapsing, not accruing, we will make steady progress toward living purposefully as we wisely redeem the precious time we’ve been given.
If you want to live a life of significance—one wherein your achievements and legacy last beyond your earthly existence—I invite you to join the Living Backward movement. By seizing the gift of future-oriented hindsight, you will experience true joy, peace, contentment, and fulfillment in this life. Better still, you’ll forever celebrate the joy, satisfaction, and staggering rewards of having built a genuinely successful life.
The fact that you’ve read this far is proof that you want your life to truly count. To become a part of this life-changing movement, simply sign up to the right and we’ll keep you involved, encouraged, and in the loop of how to continue living a fulfilling life. Jump in now and pick up your copy of Living Backward. In it you’ll discover all the “tools and materials” you need to start building a life of enduring significance. There’s no better time to get started than right now! Become a part of the bold and daring tribe who are living backward. Together we will learn to make a “forever mark” as we leverage “The Gift of Hindsight In Building A Truly Significant Life.”
