Having Sickle Cell Disease, recovering from depression, starting a business broke- these are just a few of the things I've overcome. Now I live to help you create clarity on your brand and your purpose, so that you can live seen and loved.
Truly, we can’t "It is well" everything we face in life. Catchy amazing song, but not the truth of how we should conclude every hard place we find ourselves in.
Some things just don't sit well with you, because they require justice, truth and reconciliation from all parties involved. There is a grace provided for confrontation, so that it can lead to peace.
David understood this deeply, so in times of battle he asked God what to do first. Should I pursue?
The beautiful thing about God's response, is that he always tells the outcome when we ask. Yes, pursue and you shall surely recover all. [1 Samuel 30:8]
When you consult God, you get to know ahead a time if your efforts will be worth it. And our emotions are what lead us to places of prayer, so that we can get the answers we need.

God wants you to stop doing this… can you guess?
This is THE most important revelation I gained from the 2009-2019 decade.
Here me out:
Trials and adversity are the way we grow. But just because you went through it and survived it, and maybe even can see how God worked it out for your good, doesn’t mean you still don’t need help unpacking it.
Today’s thoughts: God wants you to stop living in “survival mode.”
I truly believe that this was the greatest take away for the decade for me is realizing that you can go through adversity wrong.
Adversity truly is the way we grow, there is just no way. Trials and adversity are the only ways that we grow. This is a fact of life we don't get a choice in.
I'm sure at the end of this year you looked over many of the lows and highs of not just the year but the decade, and realized there were many trials that God brought you over.
As I was sitting with Holy Spirit today, He whispered to me that just because adversity is the way we grow, doesn't mean that we don't have right to unpack how those trials have impacted us.
Even if you can clearly see how God used that place of adversity to shape you, doesn't mean you can't seek outside help to help you unpack all of what happened.
God doesn't want to withhold any good thing from you - not this year, not ever.
Take time to talk with God himself, a therapist, or trusted friend to make sure you are coming out of these trials whole, and not a shell of yourself. You don't have to live in survival mode, happy that you just "made it."
This is the decade to live whole my friend.

Hey Boo, so this is the time in your life to make bold faith moves.
No more second guessing.
No more wide focus.
The best way to get out of a cycle of inaction is to just make a decision.
And trust me I know,
Putting yourself out there can be very, very scary.
Maybe you've tried before and got horrible results.
Maybe you're stuck trying to make it perfect because you secretly care too much about what people think.
Maybe you lost momentum because you were stretched too thin.
I am all too familiar with these feelings.
We're going to dive into how to get over this together.
