Dolley has a heartfelt desire to equip women with creative solutions to meet the challenges they face on a day-to-day basis. "Women want the best for their family and their relationships. It's wonderful to be able to share how God's Word, the power of prayer, and the Lord's love and guidance have been powerful influences in my life and in the lives of my family and friends."

Also close to Dolley's heart is reaching out to adults from dysfunctional backgrounds. Her mother was an alcoholic and, as a result, her teenage years were marked by turmoil and abuse. The miracle of Dolley's survival proves the love and protection that her heavenly Father had for His child. "His wisdom, mercy and love were so evident during this time of little guidance and support." Dolley holds deep in her heart the hope a relationship with Jesus and a heavenly Father can provide. The Lord is answering the prayer of Dolley's life verse, "For my father and mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me up. Teach me Thy way O Lord, and lead me in a level path . . ." Psalm 27:10-11
