Pajama Praise Inc
HISTORY Pajama Praise Inspired The idea of Pajama Praise was inspired on December 31st, 2004, when Calvinita Malone (Candy) and her sisters were invited to a New Year’s Eve luncheon at the home of their aunt, Jackie Payne. This luncheon was for all the girls and ladies in the family. After leaving the luncheon, the sisters were so inspired that they wanted to invite the women in the family and some close friends to their home for a retreat. The list grew so large that they contracted with a hotel. In February, 2005, the first Pajama Praise was held at the beautiful Homewood Suites (now defunct) in Matteson, IL. The guests were only asked to pay a minimal fee $27.00, $37.00 or $47.00 per person. This cost was based on 2, 3 or 4 occupants to a room. The cost included overnight lodging, 3 meals and all conference activities. The idea was not to profit from the event, but to continue the positive caring, sharing and empowering sentiments from the New Year’s Eve Luncheon. All expenses above what the guests were asked to pay, were covered by the sisters. The event was a great success. The guests were inspired and the sisters felt their mission to bring the ladies together was accomplished. Pajama Praise Instructions In October, 2006, while on the bus, on her way to work, Candy received a vision from God with specific instructions to continue the Pajama Praise. The scripture shown to her in the vision was:Deuteronomy 6:3. “Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.” Candy obeyed the vision. Pajama Praise Increased Today, the Pajama Praise Ministry Inc continues to maintain their mission to Increase, In Confidence In Christ. Pajama Praise holds annual empowerment conferences, monthly virtual workshops and daily inspirational conference calls.
