I share keys from John 5, and the principles of Ownership, Stewardship and Sonship. Praying you're blessed -x-

Hey Guys! Just short encouragement this week as I had a moment to reflect on the year so far. How has your 2020 been so far? Do you feel you've grown in any way? Remember, there's hope in Christ for our future, and there's hope for the changes HE desires to see in us - see Philippians 1:6 -x-

021 - A Call to be Exclusively His
Whew! This one ministered to me guys, I pray it blesses and spurs you on also to keep surrendering. God is really calling us to be set apart for Him, in the larger parts of our lives down to the finest details.  The grace (blessing and favor) of the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah) be with all the saints (God’s holy people, those set apart for God, to be, as it were, exclusively His). Amen (so let it be)! -x-

020 - The Blessing & Burden of Social Media
In this episode I share quite candidly my journey/lessons concerning social media as someone who is called to Media. When I speak of being called to ministry and being a minister - remember ministry is not limited to social media, but I'm speaking to those who know they're called to share online as well as in real life.  *Let me also clarify; I'm not saying "Influencers" cannot also be ministers - we are all ministers in the Body of Christ and we all have a measure of influence. Some points I make are about the perceived pressure to share your life, pump out consistent content or "manufacture a message", as well as the perceived pressure of novelty and more.  Praying you're blessed as you listen -x-

How do we approach deliverance? Is inner healing a biblical concept? In this episode I share a general overview of deliverance and inner healing I believe as per Romans 6 and Isaiah 61:1 that we are delivered from the power of sin at Salvation, but there is a journey and process - a daily inward renewal and restoration of the soul that occurs as we walk in intimacy with the Lord. Tune in to hear more - praying you're blessed by this episode -x- Scriptures: 3 John 1:2 | 2 Corinthians 4:16 | Psalm 23:3 | Romans 12:2

008 - Lessons in Warfare
Welcome back guys! This week I share a few things on the topic of warfare.  On the point of attacks that come through people; it may be (most likely is) completely unintentional on their part. They may not have a clue the enemy is using them to attack you in some way, so just bare that in mind. It's not about them/what they're doing, but rather what the enemy is trying to accomplish through the situation (i.e. bring you into discouragement, rejection, provoke fleshy reactions etc). -x-

005 - A Conversation on being "True to You"
Hey Guys! In this weeks episode I'm chatting with my sister-friend Torema Thompson. We share on what has helped us to be true to Abba and who He has called us to be within His body. In our fellowship family we believe it's important to be able to clarify your identity in the following three questions: Who are you? What are you called to do? How are you called to do it?  If you are a five-fold minister I recommend the resources at and The Process of Sonship Book I mentioned can be found at this link: Connect with Torema on IG or via her blog  Feel free to send in any questions to and we'll answer them in a future episode!

Hey! In this episode it was on my heart to share my journey of receiving physical healing. I truly pray it inspires you in your journey of believing or supporting friends and family in their journey. Sickle Cell Anemia, or any other sickness for that matter does not need to be a part of our identity or a part of our lives in Christ. Apologies for the excess noise and toilet flush guys! Haha!
