Judge Mablean Ephriam is on a journey in the south. Sunday afternoon she visits Selma for a tour with Journeys For The Soul.

Judge Mablean, as she is known from her court TV show, visited the Birmingham area over the weekend speaking during Helpmate Ministries’ “Completion, Perfection and Prosperity for Every Life” women’s conference in Helena.

“She wanted to come to Selma to tour the sites, so she called,” said Joanne Bland of Journeys For The Soul, a tour company she founded to provide group and personal tours of the south, particularly the Civil Rights sites.

Bland said Ephriam was expected to arrive Sunday afternoon. A tentative schedule includes stops at Selma’s museums and historic sites, a reception, a meeting with Mayor James Perkins Jr., and a personal journey on foot across the historic Edmund Pettus Bridge.

After ending her seven season run on Divorce Court, Ephriam is heavily involved with the day to day workings of the Mablean Ephriam Foundation as well as traveling extensively as a much sought after public speaker.

This hard-working woman is an entrepreneur. She is the owner of Mablean’s Limousine Services; co-owner of Jubilane Guest House, a Bed & Breakfast in Johannesburg, South Africa; and founder of an awards program, Honoring Unsung Fathers.

Ephriam attributes her success to God, her family and close friends.

Her faith, religion and trust in God keep this mother of four and grandmother of nine, meek and humble.
