  • Sacrifice is Bae 😍

    Last week I encouraged you to make what you want work and, as empowering as that message is, I wanted to follow up with some hard realities that...
  • Make what you want work.

    One of my friends in my mastermind recently decided to sunset her very successful public health practice in order to focus exclusively on her emerging art career. She said if I...
  • Lack is a lie.

    These past few months have been pretty tough for me personally. I've also had my head down working on something I'm going to share with you pretty soon. These are the reasons I haven't been in your inbox on Tuesdays like normal. But when a friend dropped this word...
  • Trusting God requires trusting yourself too.

    Sooo God dropped this into my spirit this morning and I'm just gonna leave it here with you: Think about it. The only things I have to work with to get direction to you are your own thoughts, senses, body feelings & intuition. These are things I gave you for Me to communicate with you. Sure there's My written word and plenty of...
  • Your cup runs over.

    A friend of mine and I read Emotionally Healthy Spirituality together earlier this year (highly recommend it!) and a statement the author made about how we will all ultimately "die with countless unfinished projects and goals" (Ch 6, pg 221) was a hard pill for us to swallow at the time. We want to get EVERYTHING done that we were created to do and leave this life fully poured out right? And, if we...
  • God didn't put your purpose on your shoulders alone.

    As I've been exploring creating more space in my life to live & enjoy it more, I've been thinking about how short but infinitely impactful Jesus' 1st life was. I mean, He legit completed everything He was supposed to get done in 33 years. And really His ministry was only 3 years long right? So He accomplished His entire purpose in 3 years. Like, where they do that at!? Looking at His example truly has me...
  • God gave you life to enjoy it.

    For the past several weeks I've been working on defining my personal brand now that my focus has shifted to building it up. In the process, I've been refining my current offer suite and even entertaining swapping out some of the old offerings for fresh ideas I have. As exciting as pursuing new ideas is though, it hit me the other day that...
  • God needs you to show up.

    For years, I would always answer the question "what would you do if you could do anything in the world you wanted?' with two activities: 1. sing in a traveling gospel choir (soprano of course lol) and 2. just wake up and walk around ministering to people all day. In my head, I glamorized the idea of just being able to do #2 like it was #goals. Now, as it's hitting me that...

  • God is trying to talk to you but are you listening?

    "There were so many people coming and going that they couldn’t even take time to eat, so he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a place w...
  • Take too much.

    Last week I encouraged you to ask God for more and to even make a list of things you want to ask Him for. I wanted to follow up with two additional scriptures I came across that were speaking to me along this same vein. The first was this...
  • Ask God for more.

    Back in June I read an article in a magazine that really started to challenge my thinking around money & provision. So much so that, after reading it, I was like, ok God if this is true and I should be coming directly to You for my needs instead of "technically" going to money / myself / my business, etc, I need You to prove it to me so that I know that this revelation I've received is true. So, in July I asked Him for...
  • Give God flexibility in how to provide for you.

    Two entrepreneur friends of mine were believing God for a financial need to be met recently. One told God the specific amount of money she needed and left the "how" He would get it to her completely up to Him. The other told God exactly how she wanted Him to get her money to her. The first friend got...
