Alita is the Choir President/Minister of Music, Outreach Leader, Graphics Designer, and Praise and Worship Leader at her church: Power of Praise Non-Denominational Ministries in Chicago, IL.  She is the wife of 17 years to David L. Eagles who also serves in ministry, and mother to 2 sons and 1 daughter.

Outside of ministry she makes handmade jewelry,  and accessories, a hobby that has turned into a small business. She also has launched, “Write the Vizion,” a Christian based company that targets people who want to start (or have started) a business and need help with graphics, website design, social media page creation, and more. She loves helping people find their God-giving vision through Vision Board Workshops that teach the Biblical principals that help visions come true. She also loves creating things, writing, singing, playing the keyboard, cooking, couponing, and learning new things as much as possible!  She counts it all joy to serve as the secretary at New Hope Church
