Ever felt like your life is over? Perhaps it was a break up, being fired, a health scare, or a pandemic. Regardless of the transition, this show explores what it is like to encounter these transitions and what to do in order to have a mindset and a faith that clings to hope, Your life is not over!
On this episode, I had the privilege to speak to Brieanna Lightfoot Smith!
She is a Jesus lover, author, business owner and Founder of Black Girls with Purpose - a community creating spaces for women of color to connect. She has encouraged over 1000 women and teens over the course of her career and used her experience in the New Orleans education system to design a workshop style curriculum that covers topics such as identity, healthy self-esteem, time management, and goal-setting.
In the summer of 2018 Brie partnered with the Essence Fest Day of Service to present a Boss Up! workshop on entrepreneurship. In the fall of 2018 Brie launched the Black Girls with Purpose podcast which airs weekly and has over 19,000 streams. Her audience spans across the United States and internationally. After battling against suicidal thoughts as a teenager, Brie emerged as a twenty-something with a story to tell. She has now dedicated her life to helping women build a strong sense of community. When she’s not writing or teaching women about purpose and identity you can find Brie spending time with her family or working on programming for her nonprofit Unity Queens.
It was such a joy to have her speak to the many realities she faces each and everyday as a new mother in the seasons of late.
It marks two years since the loss of my best friend to Cancer. However, his life continues to teach me and bring great gifts to my life after. In this episode I share three lessons his passing has taught me that I want anyone to have in their back pocket for when they or if they are going through any loss.
I know this will touch your heart and you can say, your life is not over!
