    *ENCORE* Finishing Strong When You're Tired

    04/12/2019 Duração: 21min

    This week is an encore from last year - the secret to finishing strong when you’re tired.This episode was so well received and so relevant I thought I would share it again. It’s a short, practical episode. Stick around until the end, because there’s a homework assignment to prepare you for next week’s year in review episode.  The secret to finishing strong is not necessarily pushing harder, but embracing the rest your soul needs. In this episode we discuss: Everything that grows and produces needs times to rest and recover. God has designed us to cycle between effort/work and recovery/rest. When we allow time for rest and recovery, it allows things to grow stronger. How do we allow time for rest when there's still work to be done? How do we slow down the pace of our lives to enjoy the holiday season? I’ve got some homework for you. Next week’s episode will be our final episode for 2019. We’re talking about our year in review and mentally preparing for a new year with a one word theme.  Your homework is to

They travel the world ministering through song. Years later, they settle into lead a church. Their kids are either young adults at this point or approaching it. They are not a constant in your life, but they are a family that you once knew. Then, one day you learn that the husband has been arrested and sentenced to prison time. This family’s world i

    Boundaries and A Woman's Body with Dr. Joia Creer-Perry

    11/11/2019 Duração: 01h05min

    I already had an episode planned where I talked to my cousin, an OBGYN about women’s health. I don’t normally talk about pop culture on my podcast but this week I’m making an exception. Why? Because of 2 news stories this month:  Rapper TI takes his daughter to the gynecologist once a year to make sure she’s still a virgin and now  Because of Kanye’s conversion, people are interjecting their beliefs about how his wife should start dressing.  I tend to keep my opinions about controversial things limited to what I share with people who personally know me because for the most part, opinions are opinions and everyone has one. In this case, I think both situations are about control. Control in any relationship, regardless of the circumstance can lead us to dangerous places. Respect isn’t found in control. Control comes from a place of fear.  In the second half of the show I share a conversation that I had with my cousin, Founder and President of the National Birth Equity Collaborative, Dr. Joia Creer Perry. She'

As we head into the 4th quarter of the year, I want us to ask ourselves how do we finish the year strong mentally, emotionally, physically?  In order to do that we need to decide where we are today.

    21/08/2019 Duração: 01h09min

    In today’s episode I’m talking with 2 dynamic women that I can’t wait for you to meet. They are transparent and wise. They entrusted their stories to me, a woman they didn’t know the week before. We met through the Entrusted Women Facebook Group. My guests are Jessica Collazo & Debra Cheeks.  Jessica is a Chicago native with a heart that beats for Jesus. Her passion is to challenge women to think differently, gain a new perspective and live confidently. Because she knows, it’s possible. Jessica lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Jerry, two sons and dog, Sawyer. Debra Cheek is the wife of John Cheek, and a mom of 7. She is passionate about family, and that passion is most seen in her love for marriages. Her desire to see God's people restore marriage to a place of honor has been channeled and grown through writing, as she published "The Believing Wife" in 2017, and through teaching bible studies, workshops, and seminars.

    Finding Your Voice (Pt 1)

    20/08/2019 Duração: 35min

    Finding my voice has been about embracing the way I’m wired instead of thinking there was something wrong with me because of my southern accent, because of my acne prone skin, because I would prefer deep conversations to small talk, because I will attempt to read 3 books at once or because I would choose working out with you over chatting over coffee. I have found my voice in little and small ways over the years. We’re going to use the word VOICE as our acronym for finding our voice: V: List Your Values - Are they reflected in how you live your life? O: Outcomes - How do you solve problems? I: Inventory your strengths C: Creativity - How do you express yourself? E: Emotional intelligence  Why does finding your voice matter? How does God help us in this process? *********************** Show Notes: The STRONG Womanhood Growth Journal: Activate the Courage to Live Out Your Calling is a self directed guide for women who want to be active participants in their personal transformation and are looking for a process
