“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”
1 Corinthians 3:11
It all began in 2018 when the dynamic trio of Bri’Ann Stephens, Klarke Foreman, and Tiffany McCardell joined forces with a shared vision.
Our Powerhouse team was driven by a simple yet profound goal: to empower women by arming them with the fundamental tools needed to construct a solid business foundation. Fast forward to 2020, and our impact has blossomed, touching the lives of over 2,000 incredible women.
But in 2023 God revealed that Foundation First is more than just a business venture; it's an innovative faith-based platform for women to gain accountability, propel in their purpose and grow in their faith.
We host curated experiences ranging from panel events, conferences, summits, retreats, and concerts; where you’re able to meet and learn from other women in various industries and stages of life.
We provide you with tangible products that are designed to develop personal wellness skills that promote growth for your future. Through our devotionals, quizzes, and shorts you’re able to hear relatable stories, enhance your knowledge– creating a healthier and more fulfilling life.
We understand that you cannot build a business, family, or career until you set a solid foundation in Christ.
Whether you are someone who loves God but finds it hard to commit to a lifestyle devoted to Christ, are in a transitional season in life, or simply someone who is desperate for change– we want to meet you, connect with you, and grow with you.
Together, let’s discover who we are in Christ and walk in the fullness of our identity uniquely and authentically.

THE GIRLS BEHIND THE BRAND
CO-FOUNDER + CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
Developing a true relationship with Christ has been the most revitalizing thing I could have ever done. For a long time, I considered my accomplishments to be my greatest joy, until I realized they were blocking me from my true identity. With that, I am passionate about helping others do the same.
In addition to Foundation First, I am a student at Houston Christian University, earning a degree in Biblical Studies. I am learning more about the world around me while expanding the reach of Foundation First.
CO-FOUNDER + CHIEF BRANDING OFFICER
My love for making things look good has been with me throughout my entire life. This gift has enabled me to curate beautiful brand designs and experience a successful career in fashion modeling. Since surrendering my life to Christ, I have been devoted to modeling the Kingdom of God.
As the Chief Branding Officer responsible for making Foundation First look good, I go beyond aesthetics. I am on a mission to inspire others to embody the Kingdom through our distinctive brand. It's not just about looking good; it's about reflecting Christ in everything we do.
CO-FOUNDER + CHIEF IMPACT OFFICER
As far back as I can remember my desire has always been to help others in every facet of life; whether it be financially, spiritually, socially, as a friend, as a supporter, as a mom, as a daughter, and as a wife. I love being the vehicle God uses to be able to change the lens in which a person sees things.
As a life coach and Chief Impact Officer at Foundation First, with my God-given gift, I help others unlock the greatness that is inside of them and live a life that God says is theirs.
