"I Have Learned When To Say Yes And When To Say No"

Erica Campbell wears a lot of hats in her life as an author, recording artist, pastor’s wife, and mother of three children. The celebrity mom tells Bibs and Business exclusively how she manages it all.

“I don’t wear all those hats at the same time,” Erica tells the editorial. “Sometimes I am just a wife,” she explains. “Sometimes I am just a mom. I don’t feel guilty when I can’t do everything for everybody and that is very liberating. I have learned when to say yes and when to say no.”


Erica has worked in show business for many years and, thus, prides herself on professionalism. Still, even with all that she does during the workday, the celebrity mom manages to give the same energy at home that she offers in business meetings and on her morning radio show, Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell.

“Unwinding for me means being with my family,” Erica tells Bibs and Business. “I try to make sure that the same level of excellence and professionalism that I give to my career, that I am also giving my husband and children that same energy. I don’t want them to get tired, worn-out Erica. Does it make me worn out sometimes? Absolutely. Is it worth it? Yes.”

Faith has a lot to do with how Erica Campbell conducts her daily routines. The celebrity mom’s opinions about beauty are definitely driven by her belief in God.

“I have to constantly tell myself who I am in Christ,” Erica explains. “You are fine whether you wear a size 8 or a size 18,” the celebrity explains. “Imagine how it sounds to the Father when we are constantly bashing our bodies. Imagine how you would feel as a mom if your child kept complaining about their body. That’s what we do to God. Love your body and if you need to make changes do that, if you need to change your diet, do that, but don’t bash your body. Be thankful for the body you have.”

Erica and her husband, Warryn Campbell, have two daughters, Krista and Zaya, and a son named Warryn III. You can learn more about Erica’s perspective on life in her book, More than Pretty: Doing the Soul Work that Uncovers Your True Beauty, which is available in bookstores nationwide.
