S3Eps31: Your Understanding Determines What You Believe
As we transition through life we always assume that knowledge is power. Definitely knowledge has a way of giving you tools that can assist in any given situation but knowledge is not enough if you don’t use the tools. What good is knowledge if you never use it. When you have an understanding of something that can lead to power. Listen how Rev Dr Marisha talks about the connection between your understanding and believing the word of God.

S3Eps30: The Enemy Uses Your Past
We do not realize how much the enemy uses our past to distract us to not live in the present and not fulfill our destiny. Our past is a springboard to the promises of God but it is all in our mindset. Unfortunately, we allow our flesh to look, think, feel and relive in the past which opens the door for the enemy to come in and cause havoc in our lives. Listen how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about what causes this to happen and how we have the power to stop the enemy in his tracks.

S3Eps30: You Won't Upgrade
Seasons change and as seasons change, we do not change with the seasons. As a society, we do what we know and stay in the familiar. Unfortunately when we stay in the familiar we do not realize how we do not grow in various areas of our lives. God expects growth, he expects fruit from our lives but it is our fear that keeps us from walking in faith and being fruitful. Check out how Rev Dr Marisha talks about our refusal to upgrade for the better because of the familiar and not faith.

S3Eps29: Battles of the Mind
We do not realize how much we hold negativity in our minds that create battles against what we believe.

Check out how Rev Dr Marisha talks about how all of our battles all stem past experiences that we hoard in our mindset.

Interview with Diane Halfman
Bio: It was never my plan to walk the streets and become a prostitute, yet alone get involved with vicious gangs and narcotics. My life choices put me in grave circumstances. Danger became a way of life, forcing me to carry a gun in my hand every day for 10 years. You see, I was an undercover cop for the San Diego Police department. My job was to infiltrate the gangs and prostitutes, bust the John’s, bring’em down and clean up the streets! I understand fear and survival instincts - I lived them and know what it takes to find your grit, perseverance and power to push through any challenge. After being medically retired from the police department as a result of a training accident, I took my years of experience, along with my Masters Degree in Human Resources Management as well as my Certification as a Life Coach, to pioneer the creation of my own company called SPAlife. When people find out I was a police officer and specifically an undercover prostitute hunting a serial killer, the questions come flooding in. What was it like? Did you ever shoot anyone? Did anyone shoot at you? Were you scared? How did you survive? How did you know what to do under pressure? I realized my street and life experience have led me to have unique insights and able to uniquely help people like you to be able to quickly move through any obstacle to be more confident, trust yourself more and access your inner power to do your greater work in the world! I am now a Consultant, Trainer and Podcaster supporting entrepreneurial leaders.

Interview with Tamika Thomas
From Crutches to stairs is not just the name of my first book but it is my life. Today I am a transparent author, certified forward living coach, inspirational speaker, and mentor to many. I strive to live a life authentically with open-heart showing love to everybody that crosses my path. But it was also like this, as a young child I was sexually and physically abused. My mother became addicted to drugs going in and out of prison, which caused me to turn to unhealthy relationships. The breaking point was two unsuccessful marriages, a suicide attempt and so much stress that caused me to have a STROKE. In 2015 I made the leap of faith to no longer use my life's hurts and tragedy's as crutches to cripple me, but instead use them as stairs to get me to the next level. I knew it all had a purpose. I just had to find the purpose in my pain. Today I live my life to empower. I believe that God has called me to be a bridge over troubled water helping to connect others to their power source. Through my products and services I am dedicated and determined to show others how they too can turn their trials into treasures.

Who the son sets free is free in deed. John 8:36 just lets us know that there is no sin under the son that we did, are doing and will ever do that Jesus hasn't paid our debt for us on the cross.

S3Eps22: God is Your Guide
You do not realize how much we utilize navigational systems when we do not know where we are going but in the same regard, we try to use the same mindset when it comes to new experiences and transitions of life. When God is trying to elevate, transition or change us we try to use the same navigational system as a way to figure out what God is doing but that doesn't work. We rely on our physical senses to get us where we are going in the natural but God wants us to use our faith to depend on his WAZE or should I say WAYS!

S3Eps21: Let Me Out
Rev. Dr. Marisha is talking about the narrative that the enemy plants in our subconscious like a whirlwind and we cannot get out.

Dr Marisha breaks down how the enemy attacks our mental health by creating a movie that we are the ones who see and that movie becomes a narrative that God never intended for us to watch and/or believe.
June 14, 2022
S3Eps20: It is Time to do the Work
Oftentimes we do not realize how much we focus more on our past than our present and where God is taking us. It is the trick of the enemy to make us focus more on what is behind than believe the narrative of our lives in the present. There are so many things the enemy is distracting us from so that we do not realize the gift of the present and the 3 P's God's provision, God's Promises and God's Protection. We have to stop making excuses about our mental health and do the work to be mentally healthy.

The Enemy is After Your Mental Health
Mental health is a big concern all over the world especially after Covid. It is the biggest attack the enemy is infiltrating our land with attacking our mindsets to think more into ourselves than who we are in Christ. When we are into ourselves, we mentally imbalanced.

Dr. Marisha talks about how we can stay mentally balanced by focusing more who we are in him.

It is Not Your Fault
This clip is an audio copy of my YouTube video from this past Saturday saluting moms. This audio is to salute every mother who does not get acknowledged like they should; the mother who is not often recognized or highlighted because of the decisions and/or excuses their children have made. Being a mother is a challenging role and it is challenging to see when you plant so much into your children's lives and you do not see the fruit from your labor. Rev. Dr. Marisha wants to honor and salute you this Mothers Day 2022. It is not your fault the decisions your child chose; it is not a reflection of you but of them. Be encouraged because God chose you to be a mother. God loves you and thanks you for your service.

S3:Eps16 - The God in You
Oftentimes we do not feel equipped to handle situations that arise in our lives. We feel overwhelmed, not knowledgeable, not ready and sometimes just thrown off at things that come up in our lives. Well, that is life they say but God says "You are Equipped." Although, many of us do not feel equipped for the trials of life, we fail to realize that just like God takes care of the birds in the air, how much more will he do for us who are created in his image. Check out this episode where Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the God in You that makes the difference on your outlook on the giants you see in your life today.

The End is a New Beginning
New beginnings can be challenging and oftentimes it comes at a price. Celebrating the resurrection is always a reminder of a great call that connects with a great cost. Jesus paid a great cost to die for the sins of the world. The main thing that many people don't realize is that he had a decision to make to go to the cross and ultimately he denied himself despite the pain, despite the adversity, and despite the opposition. Jesus surrendered just because he loves you. His sacrifice was all because he wanted to fulfill the purpose for just lil ole you. What a love! Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how Jesus sacrificed his desires to fulfill his purpose and how we should understand that we have a purpose to fulfill for the kingdom as well. Just because something ends doesn't mean there is a new beginning waiting around the corner for you.

S3:E13: The False Reality Check
The enemy uses our past in a way that helps us create a false sense of reality based on a negative event that happened from our past. We do not realize how much we use our senses to create a reality that builds up residue based on what we see, hold onto and what we hear. It is the biggest trick of the enemy to keep the digital footprint in our subconscious so that we perceive more in the natural fear not hope, hold onto our past in our subconscious and build protective measures within ourselves and become so distracted that we do not hear the voice of God. Listen how Rev Dr Marisha talks about how our senses can lead us to not letting go so that we can be all God created us to be and that is "FREE."
April 12, 2022
The Digital Footprint
You know there is something in the realm of technology called a "digital footprint" that leaves cookie crumbs from everything that we have clicked on or saved. Well in the same regard our subconscious creates a digital footprint of all of the things we have experienced in our lives. Unfortunately, our subconscious holds onto more of the negative things than positive things we have experienced. Hear how Rev. Dr. Marisha expands on how this happens and what we can do to shift our mindset in a way to release the digital footprint and accept the gift God has given us.

S3:Eps11: Living in the Present
Many of us do not live in the present; we live the past. We live in a space were we are consumed by things that were imposed on us or things we self-imposed on ourselves. It is so sad when we do not put our life in the drive position always expecting the move of God in our lives. Just like a camera, capturing moments is all about capturing today, not yesterday and not tomorrow. God wants you to live and capture everyday because he has got you and he has got your situation.

S3:Eps10 Pressure Pushes Peserverance
What do you do under extreme pressure? Definitely pressure is something that causes one to go into a mode of fight or flight response. It has a way of making people believe more in themselves in the natural than believing in God in the supernatural realm. When under extreme pressure do you try to make things happen or you wait on God? The response to this question is directly related to whether or not you try to help God out or you wait for the manifestation. There is a blessing in the waiting. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how much of a mess Sarah created by helping God when she couldn't take living barren any longer.

S3Eps9: You Need the Oxygen Mask on First
We do ourselves a disservice when we take care of everyone else and do not take care of ourselves. How can we keep living like that? How can we make it when we neglect our own needs, desires, goals and health. Sadly we put everyone else before taking care of what we need to take care of.

Healing is Your Responsibility

Check out this episode how Rev Dr Marisha talks about how wounds heal; healing is directional and sometimes the depth of the wound takes time and work.
March 01, 2022
S3:Eps7 - Expect Something Unbelievable
Expecting something beyond the scope of your education and experiences seem a bit far-fetched. Oftentimes we put God in a box based on what we haven't seen manifest in the natural. It is easy to forget that God is always working in the spiritual realm and there are so many things he can do if we take the limits off of what we think he can do. Can you believe something so unbelievable that others wouldn't believe you if you told them? God is a God who performs miracles, signs and wonders that are beyond what are little minds can even comprehend. God wants to do something for you that he hasn't done for anyone else but the question is "can you believe it?"
February 22, 2022
S3:E6 - Extraction Process is Necessary
The extraction process is necessary but not always comfortable. There are things that we go through that the enemy has to get approval from God before he can test us.

Check out this episode, it will bless you!
February 15, 2022
S3:Ep5 - You Don't Need to Understand
There are so many things in life we are trying to understand especially when we go through things that we are waiting on. Sometimes life is going so fast that we are always in a position of trying to figure out the why, how, when and where that we lose sight of God has everything in control. All of us are in a space of in between the promise and manifestation and unsure when God will respond. There are so many people who have lost hope in this in between space because they are too focused on trying to understand what is going on instead of believing that God is able. Check out how Rev. Dr Marisha talks about leashing your thoughts, disciplining your mind and praising God through the midst of it all to push you to hope again.

S3:Eps3 - Push Through
Pushing through adversity is not the easiest thing to do especially when you do not know what to do. There have been some amazing people in the world who have had to push through some crazy circumstances that required delusional faith. Believing without seeing is extremely challenging but God requires us to believe without seeing or knowing how he is going to do it. In addition, it requires us to push through our mindset, push through our emotions and push through whatever is going on that does not line up with what we are believing.

God is doing something new in you in 2022 and it is time to stretch forth. See God does not want us to stay the same. He wants us to be ready for all the things he has for us but he must deal with our negative mindset in order to take us into our destiny. He can't give us new things when all we think about is what we don't have, what we can't do, what mistakes we made, what sins we committed when God is not looking at any of that. All God sees is you. He sees you and desires for you to be all you can be but we must let go of what was in order to embrace all of the possibilities that can be. Stretch Forth!!!!

Episode 40 - Thank You for the Assignment

We rarely are thankful for our challenges or the storms we go through. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how to be thankful in the storm and for the storm.

Oftentimes when we look at what is on our plate we feel so overwhelmed. We feel like it is so unbearable that we feel like we are losing our minds. Definitely the biggest trick of the enemy is to get us so focused on ourselves and thinking more about what is against us not realizing it is all a set up for God to use us in a mighty way. When God wants to birth some things in our lives sometimes the things on our plate are just a stepping stone to get us to the right path. Check out how Rev.

Episode 37 - Birthing Greater Works
God said "greater works you shall do" but do we believe that we can do greater works than Jesus? God has been telling us things for years that he wanted birthed in our lives but we fail to believe that we can do it. Oftentimes we think there are things we need in order for it to manifest but God wants you to know that he already planted everything you need while you were in your mother's womb so there is nothing else that needs to be done. It is just time to birth whatever God told you to birth for the kingdom of God. He is waiting on your gifts to make room for you.

What type of mindset do you have a chicken coop mindset or an eagle mindset? Sometimes we do not know how limited our thinking is when it relates to letting go of our past. We do not realize how much we fail to trust God beyond what we know and fail to realize that God has given us the wings we need to soar. God has given you everything you need but all God requires you to do is expect something great, expect God to use your flaws, expect God to use your weakness to move you to a deeper level of becoming all he destined you to be.

Check out this episode how Rev Dr Marisha emphasizes the need to understand that there is a process God desires for your spiritual growth to bear fruit. The process is connecting that your pain is not in vain. There is no biblical character that went through trials of life for nothing. They all went through the trials for a purpose. There was a purpose but it is realizing hat what God chose and called you for this assignment because he knew there was something special in you God saw even before you were formed in your mother's womb. The trial you are in now is not about you but it is bigger than you and God has appointed you to be a prophet to the nations and bear fruit not for yourself but for others.

Episode 30 - Transition if Not a Denial
Transitions in life can get disheartening and disappointing at times. It's interesting when seasons transition, it is easier to prepare for the new season versus the transitions of life. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha discusses how much trees have to endure just by transitioning through seasons but it is all about their ability to stand in the face of uncertainty. Many think it is about the transition but it is about what God is trying to do during the transition for spiritual growth.

Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha discusses how we as believers should always walk and talk in faith. It cannot be something we put on and take off but faith should be a constant in our lives. Faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things NOT seen. God wants us to believe without evidence or proof just because we know who he is and what he can do.Delusional faith is not the easiest thing to do but based on Hebrews 11, there are a plethora of people who demonstrated extreme faith to give us hope for our situations that we do not need to see the evidence but believe beyond our senses that our God can do impossible things even NOW!
July 13, 2021
Episode 23 - Delusional Faith
Check out this episode how Rev Dr Marisha talks about Delusional Faith.

Check out Episode 21 "The Fault in Our Perception." Rev Dr Marisha talks about how there is a problem in how we view problems. As a child of God, we have access to have victory in everything that we experience; but it is our perception that must be addressed when problems arise. Oftentimes when problems arise, we hyper focus on the problem that blocks us from believing that God's Got This! It is our view that causes us to be worried, anxious, nervous, doubt, and fear when the problem is not the problem but a flaw in how we see the problem. It is the fault in how we view the problems we face; God wants us to look at our problems with a supernatural lens that nothing is impossible with God.

June 08, 2021

Definitely this pandemic has caused all of us to question what we believe and who we believe in. We have been dealing with a faceless virus that had us doubting our faith and questioning what in the world God was doing.

Bio I went from a teen pregnancy statistic to successful entrepreneur, but it took me decades of trial and error.

I successfully created the life of my dreams where I get paid to write and help others. Now … I help other single moms find the same as we transform the chaos and fear after divorce into fuel to skyrocket their lives. I believe good people do great things when they have the time, money and freedom to show up fully in the world.

Check out part 2 of this episode. Rev. Dr. Marisha continues to talk about how we should regulate our mindset to understand that the things we go through bend us but do not break us. Yes, the challenges of life can cause our faith to bend but it is our mindset and how we process unfortunate events that can still give us the victory if we only believe.

Episode 7: Don't Look for Love in All the Wrong Places
Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how we look for love in the wrong places. Oftentimes we look for love in other relationships which is based on what we see in the natural not based on what really goes on behind closed doors. We get caught up in being jealous looking at other relationships not realizing what God has for us is for us. As a result, we struggle to wait in the process. Hear how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about our biggest culprits in looking for love in all the wrong places are connected to: trusting God in his process and promise, waiting on God to bring who he wants in our life, putting band-aids on our scars, jumping in and out of relationships, and looking back at what was and not in the here and now.

Dr. Marisha shares 3 ways we block ourselves from fully experiencing God's love to the fullest.

Episode 5 - Season 2: Take the Limits Off (Part 2)
Check out Take the Limits Off (Part 2). Rev. Dr. Marisha discusses how we have courage enough to believe but lack the faith to believe that God can perform a miracle for little ole me. Sometimes we do not realize how much we limit God in our thinking and how we process our circumstances and filter everything through our past. As a result, our unbelief takes over and we limit God in who he is, the power he has and if he can bless me in my current situation right now. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the 2 blind men who had enough faith to get them in front of Jesus but didn't have a measure (expectation) of faith, great enough to believe it could happen for them.
February 02, 2021
Episode 4 - Season 2: Take the Limits Off
Check out this season where Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about we set limits on ourselves and what we believe. One of the biggest hinderances is believing beyond our own abilities and then waiting for the manifestation. Our free will has the ability to offset our mindset giving us a false sense of reality in what we can do; however, in this life we can't do nothing without God. It is all about resetting our mindset in a way that helps us to believe to let go of what we can do and let God take control. We struggle as a human race to believe beyond ourselves but with God all things are possible if we take the limits of what God can do.

Oftentimes when one is hurt, misused, abused, slandered or stabbed in the back, it is not your first instinct to respond in love. Nevertheless, it is insightful and amazing how Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. always responded with 3 virtues that attributed to his staircase mindset to see beyond what others could see and that is: faith, hope and love. When one responds from that perspective then change will happen but it is all about changing our mindset first before we see change. The world is still seeing the residue from those 3 virtues that he showed the world that is still a change agent for the greater good eve in society today.

It is not about looking back in the past with regrets, blame, shame or even glamorizing what was but realizing that your past was a set up for where God is taking you in this season. This is no time to be scared of the giants because God has already overcome them for you if you realize that life doesn't happen to you but through you.

Interview with Mechelle Luster
Mechelle Luster's Bio I'm Mechelle, a writer whose work is inspired by my experience with divorce. In 2014, I met someone, married him very quickly, and after 11 of the most challenging months of my life, I left the marriage feeling ashamed, disappointed in myself and uncertain I'd ever smile again. A few years later, I created an Instagram page called “Hope After Divorce” - a page filled with the words I needed to hear during my separation. These words have resonated with thousands on Instagram and have given me the opportunity to share my story with people around the world. Yes, there's still hope after divorce and domestic violence. There's still hope.. even after this.

Have you ever taken time to reflect on how many times you complain about things that do not even matter? Think about all of the loved ones who died this year due to COVID that do not have an opportunity to complain because they are not here anymore. It is time to leave complaining in 2020 and begin focusing more on life and living life more abundantly in 2021.

Episode 34 - Seasons in the Detour
Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about seasons in the detour can have a negative impact on our mindset. Definitely we as a people, do not like change but Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 talks about seasons and how there is a time for everything. Sometimes we do not realize that seasons are the wilderness places in our lives that push more growth in us like never before. Definitely seasons or changes in one's life do not seem as if it works for our good but it actually benefits us even more. It was the Children of Israel's mindset that had them defeated in the wilderness, it was not because God didn't provide or take care of them. Oftentimes, we get stuck in the seasons or valleys not realizing it is just a matter of time before we launch into the promised land. Check out this episode and see how Rev. Dr. Marisha shares how to be like a leaf and rely on your source=GOD!
November 17, 2020
Episode 33 - God is Your Source in the Detour
Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the importance of God being your source no matter what. Oftentimes we keep God first when things are going well but when there is an undercurrent pulling you under the water and you cannot stay afloat, this is the best time to hold to God's unchanging hand. Life is a journey and we all experience hardships individually and as a nation but do we really trust God no matter what? I know there are a lot of people who were happy that there is a new administration in the white house but in the same regard, if God kept the same administration in the position, would you still trust that God is your source? Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the importance of keeping God as our source no matter what is going on in the choppy river. It is a testament to our faith and what we believe when we go with the flow of the river and give God permission to lead us in his ways which are ten times better than our ways.
November 10, 2020
Episode 32 - Detour of 2020: Faith Over Fear
Check out this episode where Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how you have to faith over fear. Definitely in the sign of the times we are so distracted by the cares of the world and we are so distracted on the storm than on God. In the eye of the storm, do you still believe that God is with you? The disciples failed this test like many of us, we getting distracted on the storm and forget that God is in the boat with us. He has not left us and even in this political season and pandemic, God is with us if we only believe. This is a time we need to have faith more than fear like never before. Do you still believe no matter who is in the White House, do you still believe that God is your source?
November 03, 2020
Raise Your Expectations in the Detour
Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the importance of raising our expectations is so critical in this season. Sometimes when things do not happen the way we thought, we often quit before God manifests his glory in our lives. Sometimes there is a reason for the delay and do not believe that God is even doing something in the delay. Check out how she uses the story of Lazarus and how Jesus delayed even going to attend to his friend's illness because Jesus was trying to leave an imprint on the people's subconscious in a way to believe no matter what; this is where God has us now even in this season. He wants us to believe no matter what but the question is can you believe beyond your experiences, expertise, association, and even what you have learned? Check out this week's episode to raise your expectations and believe! 26b1dwGi1KLSRKfPL4IK

The Detour is a Promise Not a Dead-End
Check out this episode where Rev. Dr. Marisha discusses how sometimes life throws us curve balls and everything may seem like a dead-end or like the promises of God are denied. We must remember that a delay is never a denial and God is always trying to expand our faith, show off his power and glory but at the same time, God wants us to raise our expectations and take the limits off. There may be detour, dead-end, and warning signs that make us doubt but this is the best place for God to get us to put all of our faith, hope and trust in what he can do supernaturally in the detour. As believers we need to stop making assumptions based on timing, direction and the unknown. We cannot be so closed minded in the detour because God has the final say and is always an on time God.

Episode 29 - Your Detour Cannot Stop Your Destiny
Check out how this episode how Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about the power Nelson Mandela had within himself related to his freedom. Although life may give you a detour and one may feel isolated, distracted, disheartened, dismayed, disappointed and alone but even in the midst of the trials of life, we cannot believe the lies of the enemy that the detour will stop our destiny. Nelson Mandela learned how in the midst of the storm, he had to learn how to be free even from behind a jail cell. He learned the power of being free in his mind was more important than his physical freedom. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha applies this lack of freedom to this pandemic and how we need to learn how to be free in our minds just like Nelson Mandela.
October 13, 2020
Episode 28 - Detour of 2020
Check out this episode where Rev. Dr. Marisha defines the pandemic as the "Detour of 2020." Definitely this year was not what we thought it would be especially with the double digits of 2020. In the beginning, there was an expectancy that this year was going to be a great year; however, our lives were traumatized when COVID-19 hit America. We felt trapped, scared, and confused how this could happen just like the children of Israel during the Red Sea experience. We all have had Red Sea experiences when we were put in a situation and we didn't know what to do but rely totally on God. We must remember that God led Moses and the children of the Israel to the Red Sea just like God led us to the year 2020. Check out how Rev. Dr. Marisha emphasizes that when God leads you to a Red Sea experience, there is always a miracle in the detour.
October 06, 2020
Episode 27 - Regeneration Will Come if You Stand
Check out this episode as Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about Psalms 1:3 if God can restore and regenerate trees, he can restore and regenerate in our lives as well. The only commandment that God gave to a tree was to STAND and that is all God is requiring us to do during trials and tribulations. Unfortunately, there is a false sense of security that we have of independence but COVID-19 has tested our independence and tested our faith in a way that we have to rely on our source. The only thing we can do is be like a tree and "STAND!" As a result, we trust that God will regenerate and give us back everything that we lost and even more.

Interview with Tarinna Olley
Tarinna Olley was born Tarinna Whitmire in Washington, DC from Ward 7 in the Deanwood Section of the city. I come from humble beginnings and my mother always said to me, “that I thought I was Gloria Vanderbilt!” Although, my family struggled with financial resources at times my parents made sure I was not in lack. How they did it I now know was by prayer and faith. Despite living in a neighborhood where it wasn’t uncommon to hear about gun violence and drugs I still wanted more. I was always different than my peers. Basically, I always wanted more than what my neighborhood offered. I always had a bigger than life dream! I have been trained and gifted to do a number of things. I am a counselor, Minister, trainer, author, international speaker, and poet. I absolutely love serving and helping in my community with grass root organizations and have been doing since my teenage years. I have over 18 years of government service in the social service arena.

Episode 26 - What is Your Perspective?
This episode Rev. Dr Marisha talks about the three Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who had the right perspective about what they believed in and didn't waiver. Even in the midst of adversity they took a stand in who they are, what they believed about the world and what they believed about God. No matter what they didn't take the easy way out, they still were blessed with a position after taken into captivity, there was a treasure within them that gave them the steadfastness to stand even in the fire, and they knew God would vindicate them. Even in the face of death, they still believe but what about us? Can we still believe in this pandemic furnace we are in right now? Can we still believe that God is able to do what he said he would do? Check out this episode to see how is your perspective during this time?
September 15, 2020
Do You Have the Right Perspective?
Do you have control over your thoughts, feelings and behaviors or do they control you? Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about how God has already made provision for you and it is the hearing and walking out of God's word that makes the difference. Oftentimes we do not have the faith mindset to even believe for our own self when God did not require you to have faith within yourself; he requires you to have faith through him. When we have faith through what God can do through us then we will have the right perspective.

Interview with Marilynn Dawson
BIO Marilynn Dawson's Lived Experience began back when my kids where ages 3 and 5. I’d fled an abusive marriage and would find myself divorced almost 2 years later. Overwhelm coupled with an intense desire to be obtaining a career to raise my kids on my own were two driving forces back then. I am a doer, so figuring out how to do things in the best way and time possible was constantly top of mind even when all I wanted to do was cry. Financial constraints became a very real thing after graduating the training program, and that began various lessons teaching our household how to live on less than a shoestring budget (based on what most budget bloggers think people have to work with). Life around the home was never static for more than several months at a time as a result, with when and how we did things regularly being tweaked for better efficiency as the kids grew, and as finances fluctuated. I now offering my lived experiential knowledge to other Sisters in Christ who could use a certified life coach to come alongside them while they figure out schedules or money concerns while raising their children. It has been my experience that coupled with moments of quiet before the Lord, these two areas contribute the most to a mother’s sense of rest and ability to handle the world. This blog began in 2020 to capture some of those lived experiences, perspective shifts, expectation shifts, etc, to show how we did it. When it came to raising my children, the Bible was our guide and for day-to-day practical behavior, the book of Proverbs in particular. You will find a fair bit of Scripture scattered around my writings as a result. Sometimes a blog article won’t have anything related to Scripture, other times, half the blog article will be Scripture quotes.

Episode 21 - Negative Mindset
This episode Rev. Dr. Marisha talks about where negative mindset started and how powerful it is to you and future generations.

Check out this episode and how God wants you to have more of a faith mindset in this time and season in your life.

Lioness Queen Interview - Featuring TrevisMichelle
TrevisMichelle's Bio: Having been raised mostly by my grandparents, Alice & Clarence Pressley, they instilled in me to always put God first, others second and myself last. They imparted in me that it is most gratifying to help others, which in turn would help to make me a better person. From a young age I was involved in community service by speaking to the City Council advocating to keep my neighborhood kid friendly. Once I became an adult, I was recognized by former Mayor Dinkins, as the youngest Block Association President in the Borough of Queens. I am presently a member of Chi Eta Phi Sorority, Inc., Theta Chi Chapter, which is a professional nursing organization organized in 1932 at Freedman’s Hospital, now known as Howard University Hospital. I have been a member since 1993 and presently hold a position as Parliamentarian. Chi Eta Phi, Sorority, Inc.’s motto is Service to Humanity. This occurs through giving back to the community by hosting blood pressure screenings, health education, teen empowerment, senior advocacy and sisterhood. I am a proud charter member of Greater New York City Black Nurses Association. A professional nursing organization that recognizes, supports, “represents and provides a form for Black Nurses, which advocates and implements strategies to ensure access to the highest quality of healthcare for persons of color.” As of result of my commitment to the community and through hard work, I was acknowledged as the youngest Block Association President by then New York City Mayor, David Dinkins. I currently advocate by speaking to at risk youths and adults, facilitating and motivating them to let their voices be heard. I have facilitated a parenting class at the Springfield Family Residence on at a Business Employment workshop and facilitated a parenting workshop for Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Delta Beta Zeta Chapter. In addition, I was a part of a livestreamed panel discussion at Connetquot Central School District of Islip, sharing my experiences as a Registered Nurse and encouraging students to consider a career in the field of nursing. Likewise, I was a panelist on a workshop held at Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral of New York, “Pouring Into the Next Generation,” which empowers teenagers with open dialogue about leadership and nursing. Each year I sponsor a young lady for her prom. I meet with her mother and we go shopping together. When I see the joy on a young ladies’ face because they feel good about themselves, it makes the sacrifice worth it. I am a Registered Nurse at a major hospital in NYC, havingobtained a Masters of Public Administration– with concentration in Emergency/Disaster Management. I am mother of 3 wonderful adult children and the grandmother of 4 precious grandchildren. I live by my personal quote, “Tell me I can’t do something…I will do my best to prove you wrong.”

Episode 11 - "Identity and Appreciating the Treasure Within"

Check out this episode where we talk about the connection between why we allow our fear mindset to stop us for moving forward. We can learn a lot from the children of Israel and what they did and didn't do as it relates to their fear mindset. It was all about a mental breakdown between their liberation and enslavement that planted a fear mindset into their subconscious like it does with us. We allow what was imposed or self-imposed to plant a corresponding fear mindset that stops us from believing the truth...which is the word of God. Check it out and be blessed!
April 28, 2020
Episode 9 - "Not Looking Back - Part 1
This episode is about how the children of Israel wanted the very thing that God called them out of. God used Moses to lead his people out of Egypt but it was their mindset that kept them subconsciously in bondage. God has physically set them free but mentally they had triggers, believed the false narrative and did not realize who God called them to be in that season. As a result, they looked back and desired the place they hated and despised. Check out this episode as I relate to how we as Lioness Queens do the exact thing....we look back and desire things that God called us from but we won't trust God enough to be our source.

Episode 8 - " Not Looking Back Like Lot's Wife"
This episode refers to Lot's wife and how looking back lead to her demise. It was all about obedience, perspective and getting stuck in a place you don't belong.

Episode 7 - Not Looking Back with No Regrets
In this episode we start talking about the importance of not looking back with regrets. It is one of the biggest tricks of the enemy to tell you lies that things were not that bad which causes your subconscious to reminisce. In addition, the enemy plants thoughts in your subconscious that causes you to make assumptions about things that could happen down the road. God didn't intend for you to have everything figured out but just move forward and trust his ways. Philipians 3:13 tells us that we are to forget those things that are behind and press toward things ahead. This scripture is all about our mindset and consciously forcing our mind to think on things ahead which channels our thoughts to move forward one step at a time. Listen to Rev. Dr. Marisha talk about her experience with looking back and what God told her to do.
