Taking Your Power Back: Creating Your Own Forgiveness Ceremony
  You deserve to be happy. But,  that cannot happen until you take your power back and forgiveness allows you to do just that.  Forgiving someone doesn't mean that you have to like them, invite them for a coffee, or even speak to them ever again.  Forgiveness is your way of telling them that you are ready to put the incident behind you and move on with you life.  In this episode, I teach you how to create your own forgiveness ceremony.  This ceremony can be as simple or elaborate as you like, the important thing as I've said before is that you feel safe and supported.   When I think of how something so simple could help women break free -I am so grateful to be able to offer this gift to you. As a coach, No matter how often I guide someone through this ceremony, I am just blown away watching women take their power back. Now this is not some magical thing that washes away all the anger and trauma you feel around the incident. But, it is a first step a beginning toward wholeness.  Don't forget to download your free journal  this is my free gift to you, inside you will find space to help you organize your day, record your daily food intake, sleep, and exercise there is also a space to for you do some self-reflection so that you can identify the changes you need to make in order to live a happier  and healthier life.

Kinship vs Foster Care Which one is better for the children?
    According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2012, there were 2.7 million grandparents who had the primary responsibility for caring for their grandchildren who lived with them.    There is a crisis in this country and its not the children trying to get in through border.  It is the children left behind when their natural parents are no longer able to care to them.  This could be due to drug and alcohol use, poverty, or mental illness.  What is the best solution for these children?  Are you prepared to take care of children in your family if there parents are unable too? If you decide to take on this responsibility what support can you expect from the city or state child welfare organizations?  what is kinship care and is better for the children than being placed in a foster home? Today's guest answers that question and much more,  our guest today is Lisa Stevens- Cutner.     Lisa Stevens-Cutner has 31 years’ experience in Child Welfare at the Cuyahoga County Ohio Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS).  She has nine (9) years as a Direct Service worker; nine (9) years as an Ongoing Supervisor; Four (4) years as a Senior Manager of a Direct Service Department and nine (9) years as the Senior Manager of Community Initiatives.

Can This Relationship Be Saved? Letting Go Of Emotional Baggage
  Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it” Tori Amos     Today is Relationship Monday , a  heavy topic to be attacking at the beginning of the week, but I think you can handle it.    We are doing a deep dive into Part 2 of our Can This Relationship Be Saved Series- Today we are talking about emotional baggage, and how it can ruin your life and your new relationships. Don’t think just romantic, think friendship, family, co-workers, church members, emotional baggage left unchecked can permeate every area of your life and leave you feeling empty and alone.  Breathe! I am going to give you three tips you can use to  unpack and unload this burden.    Have you stopped speaking to your parents or siblings because of something they did to you? I want you to know that you are worthy of being happy. You are worthy of having stable relationships in your life. You are worthy of being loved. You are worthy of having a great career and doing something every day that you love. But to do this, you must heal your mindset and change the way you interact with the world and the people in it.  Acknowledgement is the first step towards healing and with healing comes forgiveness and acceptance.  Your homework for this week, sit down in a quiet area.  Clear your head space, put away all your electronics.  Take out that journal you purchased at the beginning of the year, :) or, just a piece of paper, think about your relationships and the things you would like to change.  Write down the three steps:  Acknowledge and release, forgiveness, learn from your mistakes-and write down the piece of emotional baggage you would like to release. Once you walk you way through those three steps,  Answer the following questions.    1. Ask yourself, how could I have handled that situation differently? 2. What will I do to ensure that it doesn’t happen again? 3. Is there something I can do to salvage this relationship and make it whole? 4. How should I apologize? 5. Who will I become when I’m healed? Why is this so important to me?   Wishing you love and Peace, Renee JOIN  The Courageous Women's Network *** https://buff.ly/2AKoTIB Being a courageous woman doesn’t mean that you have no fear, it means that you are determined to  move through the fear and live the life you deserve. and that you always choose your faith over fear... even when it's hard.

Using Prayer To Recover Your Joy-
  "Joy is what happens when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things are” Marianne Williamson      How would you like to learn how to use your spiritual weapons to recover your joy and live your life in peace?  The world can be scary and unfulfilling place, dealing with all the chaos that surrounds us can zap  the joy right out of our lives.  We spend so much time focusing on the problem that we forget we serve a God who has all the answers.  It is time that we begin to trust the Lord, especially if we want to live the life we deserve.  Proverbs 3:5 reads, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding".   We don't have to suffer in silence or carry the full burden of our problems alone.       But, why is joy so important you might be asking yourself, why can’t I just mine my own business and let other people do the same?  Because your lack of joy affects others and your ability to be a witness to God's love.  Praying is your first line of defense against the enemy and against the troubles that rise up in your life.  You were meant to live in joy and peace.  Reclaiming your joy, today!  Whether its of or own making or due to the enemies attack if you have made a habit of reaching out to God through prayer then you will win.  In this episode, I share with you how to use prayer strengthen your connection with God and how to create a string prayer when you need to re-energize your prayer life.   There will come a time when you have to be your own prayer warrior, when you are in the thick of battle and cannot wait to get to church on Sunday to have the mothers pray for you. Building a relationship with God through prayer will diminish the time we spend worrying, and our own doing or due to the enemy’s attacks, we will commence to praying. Having established a relationship with God through our prayers this will be as natural as breathing.     Don't forget to subscribe- this is part one of the series and I don't want you to miss an episode.   Wish you Peace and Love, Renee JOIN  The Courageous Women's Network  Being a courageous woman doesn’t mean that you have no fear, it means that you are determined to  move through the fear and live the life you deserve. and that you always choose your faith over fear... even when it's hard.

How Do Your Values Shape Your Beliefs?
  “Open Your Arms to Change But Don’t Let Go Of Your Values” Unknown Have you ever thought about your values?  Those things that you hold to be true and important.  Our values help to shape the way we see the world and what we are able to achieve.  Many of us are living on a rote value system that stopped working years ago.   In this episode, I am asking you six questions to help you discover or rediscover the values that create your emotional, financial, physical, or spiritual foundation.  We use our values every day to make decisions whether we realize it or not, and if we are not careful we may be using an outdated value system that no longer serves us. Eliminating un-serving values will allow you to replace them with new values that will open the door to the endless possibilities that are available to you.   This simple test we are taking today is by no means the end of the line, this is just to wet your appetite and open the doors to introspective communication.  Think of this as a chance to discover your purpose and to create your personal foundation on what matters to you and not someone else. With Love and Peace, Renee    Conversation, friendships, connection, free trainings, you can find it all in the  Courageous Women Facebook Group.

Can This Relationship Be Saved?
On today's episode, I am asking the question can this relationship be saved? This is the first part of our four part life and relationships series. In this episode we tackle the relationship we have with ourselves. It is after all, the most important relationship we will form in our lifetime. Why? Because, it impacts every relationship that we will have. No matter what is going on inside of the relationships we form with family, friends, and co-workers, we will be the one constant in all those relationships, Some of us treat relationships like revolving doors, as we search for someone to make us whole. That is an unfair responsibility to put on another person when we are responsible for our own happiness. Answer the questions honestly, you don't have to share. But, they just might help you save the relationship with yourself. I am praying that they will put on the road to finding your honest truth and open the door the your healing. Enjoy! Blessings and Peace Renee
