As for Karli, she dedicated her caption not only to her sister but she also opened up about her growth in the past year to her fans. She started by telling her sister, “I Love you and our sisterhood more than words could ever express,♥️♥️” then went on to explain how she “bossed up.” She said, “I bossed up in my prayer life. I bossed up in my faith, my walk with God AND I bossed up in business! God showed me what was possible if I just TRUST HIM!”

Karli, who is a wife to entrepreneur and speaker Benjamin Raymond and a mother to 5-year-old Benjamin Raymond Jr., continued, “This year I allowed myself to become more vulnerable and I started asking for the help I needed. I relied on a good sister girlfriend more and started a weekly prayer call! I exercised my “NO” and erected some real boundaries in my life. This year showed me what I was really capable of. THAT IF I EXPANDED MY MIND, GOD WOULD EXPAND MY TERRITORY! This year I saw myself as more loving, more powerful, more compassionate, more kind, more giving and I am GRATEFUL! I pray that my best years are ahead of me and that God continues to blow my mind with His splendor! ♥”

Steve welcomed his daughters and their brother, Broderick Harvey Jr. with his first wife of 13 years, Marcia Harvey. In 1996, he went on to wed his second wife, Mary Lee Harvey, with whom he shares son Wynton Harvey. That marriage ended in 2005, and in 2007 he said ‘I do’ to Marjorie Harvey, his current wife. Although the two do not share children together, Marjorie does have three children, Lori, Morgan and Jason Harvey, from a previous relationship.
