  • Anything stealing your joy? Maybe a habit, memory, or circumstance?
.
So often, with David + Goliath, we put ourselves in the little shepherd boy’s shoes. “If I can be brave enough, I’ll take my giant down!”
.
But in Goliath Must Fall, @louiegiglio gave me a fresh perspective: “That’s a man-made interpretation. God didn’t choose David because of his bravery, strength, or past resume—but purely because of his FAITH. Because he trusted God.”
.
Whatever hindrances are robbing you today, know that 9’ tall is NOTHING TO HIM. Bring your battle to Jesus + let Him fight for you.💛
.
P.S. It’s Tuesday, which means I’m sharing this devo in my stories. If you want a face + voice behind the message (as well as Hazel’s interpretation😂🤣😂), click on over!

  • Jesus is unchangeable. His love is extravagant. His grace is free and His mercy never ends. How amazing is our God! Take some time and thank Jesus for who He is and all He’s done for you.

  • We've all done things we wish we could undo, right? I know I have. It might be speaking harmful words instead of thoughtful ones. Or, offering indifference rather than kindness. It could be we have infused our minutes and hours with negativity and fear instead of faith and confidence. While we can't hit a Ctrl-Z undo button for the regrettable things we've done in life, we do have hope!
.
Not only is God's mercy new every morning, but one day, we will stand before Him in heaven and the things of earth will be no more. All of our scars, regrets, sighs, and might-have-beens will fade in the light of His mercy and acceptance. God will once and for all Ctrl-Z all the hurts, sorrows, and disappointments of our life on earth.
.
"...the former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind" (Isaiah 65:17).

  • We often forget to be grateful! Focusing on what we are grateful for, though, gets our minds onto a positive track. Praying to God about what we are grateful for involves thankfulness and also giving Him praise for the many blessings He gives us! Let's choose gratitude today!

  • (PT 1) Growing up in the Filipino culture where relationships were not taken lightly and felt like one had to jump through hoops to reach even the first step, I always knew that my first relationship would be a significant milestone in my life. I met an incredible person during senior year of high school and the relationship lasted about 3 years with a couple of breaks in between. The relational and spiritual peaks, learning curves, infatuation phases, and all in between were memorable, and I would not trade them for the world. There were plenty of lessons learned during the seasons of being challenged internally and relationally as they provided opportunities for self-reflection and growth that I fully embraced.  One day, after a trip that seemingly should have been one of the most confirming moments in the longevity of our relationship, something came over me and initiated me to have one of the most difficult conversations I have ever had. Looking back now, the Holy Spirit was weaving in and out of each moment leading up to that point in which I chose to end the relationship because Jesus was no longer the most significant part of our story. In retrospect, it seems I chose to purposely shatter what was good (what was GREAT even) because in the back of my mind, I knew I gave that person and myself the credit of creating something so wonderful. However, I knew deep down, staying in that relationship would be cheating both of us of God’s optimal circumstances in what a relationship should entail according to Him. I subconsciously wanted to be broken, so that my Creator would shape and mold me into the person HE wanted me to become...

  • (PT 2) To state that the break-up was terrifying is an understatement as to how I felt about the decision leading up to it. The relationship was familiar, safe, secure, full of laughter, love, incredible memories, yet my heart was still yearning for more and knew that something was missing. In hindsight, I realized that it was neither the actions of the other person nor myself that led to making the decision to end it, but rather, I needed to examine myself through the lens of how Jesus sees me, His beloved daughter. I also desperately needed to fall in love with Jesus first and grow in my intimacy with him. I’m a total extrovert, so you can only imagine how much I disliked and struggled with being alone after the split, but I had to learn that never once was I alone. Rather, I took for granted that Jesus was my lover, comforter, and healer throughout this whole time. It was me who was distracted and distanced myself from Him and not the other way around. The time of restoration and refinement afterwards took time, patience, emotional endurance, heartbreak, pain, and consistency in reminding myself where I found my worth. In the aftermath, I missed and yearned for the feeling of being “swooned” and pursued by a man, yet there was Jesus all along waiting for me to notice that He pursues me, CONSISTENTLY. It took me a minute (or a few to be honest) to recognize that Jesus pursued me in an incomparable caliber and showed His overwhelming love for me through nature, music, and sometimes within interactions I have with strangers...

  • I had this devastatingly backwards for a long time. Some days I still mess it up, but I’m grasping true beauty more and more. Anybody with me?

  • (PT 3) My friend is reading a book titled, "Loveology," and she shared an excerpt that shook me about explaining the Greek myth of “THE ONE” and marriage in general. It mentioned that you should consider marriage when you see who God is making somebody to be, lights you up, and urges you to want to be a part of their transformation story. I am grasping that “THE ONE” whom society tends to conjure up in a woman’s mind is more so an idea and not realistic at all. I’ve pondered on the thought that for me, THE ONE is God because He is the most equipped and perfect person to not only hold my heart but also to protect, tend to, care for, heal, grow, and expand it because He created it. I have also determined that the best thing I can do for myself and my future partner is to put my full trust in God as He helps increase my capability to love as close as possible to the way Jesus did.  The step of faith I took was making the choice to leave what was comfortable, and perhaps what a worldly perspective may see as a mistake, to dive into unfamiliar and terrifying territory. Fortunately, I am in this journey with the best adventure buddy, Jesus, as I continue to discover who I am in the image of God. As much as anyone else who is reading this, I have no clue what the future holds and if and when that transformation story that urges me to jump in will come, but I am deeply comforted to know that the person I am getting to know and growing more intimate with (and will continue to do so) loves me unconditionally and will never leave me. Jesus was, is, and will always be my first Lover. This is my Firmsteps story. -Aimee, age 24.

  • TOP TIP FOR CRUSHING YOUR GOALS. .
.
Please listen up! I’m seeing too many of my ride-or-die teammates and clients getting off track and discouraged, letting life, circumstances, stress, obstacles and even EXCUSES hold them back. If they are struggling, I imagine you are too. And I know this, because this was me. I tried to lose the same 10 lbs for 10 years. And it didn’t happen, because I never COMMITTED to that goal. .
.
👇🏼Top tip for crushing your goals:👇🏼
⭐️ Write down your goals every day. 🌟 Every. Damn. Day. .
.
.
Ask yourself, WHAT DO YOU WANT? Write it down. .
.
You want to lose 10 lbs like I did? Make more money in your business? Grow your IG? Improve your relationship with your hubby? Create more organization and routine in your home? Write it down. Then write down HOW you are going to make it happen. Then, starting tomorrow, write it down again. And then again the next day and so on. .
.
.
This repetition will not magically make your goal become a reality, but it instantly creates an intentional focus each day on that goal. The Law of Attraction states that where the focus goes, the energy does too. .
.
Focus on what you want. Not on what you don’t have. Create a positive focus for that goal every day by writing it down. DEAL? .
.
Trust me. It works. What do you want? What big goal are you working towards right now? 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼 it’s scary to put it out there. I get it! Me? I want to double our income in my business by the end of the year. 🤢Cheers to living our best loved and crushing goals! 🙌🏼

  • Yes, We can want more in life ... but we ultimately become what we repeatedly do.  Which means as you step into this entrepreneurial role and start learning new things ...the acquisition of knowledge doesn’t mean you’re growing. 🤔⠀
⠀
You see... Growing happens when WHAT you know changes HOW you live.⠀
⠀
Let me explain 😘 You can read the book, take the course, attend that seminar ... but if you don’t take action, create new habits, make mistakes ... you’re not growing my friend. ⠀
⠀
Stop being afraid that you are too old, not smart enough, with not enough followers. Those things don’t matter. Mind over matter. Educate and take action! ⠀
⠀
And isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different once you move forward? ⠀
⠀
That’s the power of consistency.  What recent course or class have you taken that you’re implementing consistently? ⠀

  • I’ve gone nuts here for peonies! I’ve been seriously taking over with feeds of this! Not sorry it’s soo beautiful abundantly love of this blessing here to being happy with flowers of the planted ones to! Fresh picks outta of the yard is the best here. I’ve in love with them and obviously I’m obsessing over them with things! “What gain has the worker from his toil? I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man's heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. I perceived that there is nothing better for them than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God's gift to man. I perceived that whatever God does endures forever; nothing can be added to it, nor anything taken from it. God has done it, so that people fear before him. That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks what has been driven away.”

  • I was overwhelmed and confused as to why I couldn’t keep the same pace with my work as I did the previous year. As I explained to a friend how behind I felt she graciously reminded me I was in a different season.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The year before my daughter was not in school and my son was a baby who only ate, slept and pooped.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But this new season introduced a Kindergartner with an active schedule and a toddler who wanted to play and avoid naps.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Things were different, so that meant how I went about my work would also be different. I had to slow down and give myself more grace if I wanted to keep my priorities in order.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you know what? Eventually that season passed and both kids were in school and time for work picked up.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seasons come and go. If we want to make the most of our current season we need to know and be honest about what season we’re in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As we wrap up our #RelentlessJoy Bible Study series in the next two weeks I’ll enter a slower work season, with the kids home and time for travel.  I’m looking forward to it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead of resisting the natural flow of a season I’m learning to lean in and trust God with where He’s placed me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’d love to hear from you. What season are you in? What is that season requiring of you? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 says, “Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. So glorify God with your body.” You are the temple that God has created. He has made you this way and at this time in history for a specific reason. You are His beautiful creation. Every facet of your being (physical, mental, spiritual, etc.) does not go unnoticed by Him. Remember this today as you look at ways that you can glorify God.

  • As I am at this conference I am consistently seeing confirmations that affirm why Connecting the Cause is so important. This generation no longer has loyalty to organizations. They have loyalty to causes. That’s why it’s so important that your nonprofit is championing a cause and are seen as an actual mover of the needle for the Cause you advocate for. It was amazing sitting down with @brianna_alexander and talking about all things service. 🌻❤️🌻 Access the full podcast in the bio 🔗

  • As a new small business owner and homemaker attempting to balance work with a personal life, my days tend stay pretty routine to fit as much in as possible. Like— I’ve been meal prepping the same lunch for myself for the past three weeks 😂🙈. I love it! Although it might sound bland, I thrive on to-do lists and routines🗓 and I love the flexibility of creating my own schedule. Honestly it keeps me sane and from forgetting to do everything. Like going to the store three times this week because I didn’t make a list. 🤦‍♀️ Are you a stickler for routine ✔️, or do you like to go with the flow🏝?

It’s been a week since Ryan’s lay-off and I must say when the going gets tough you really do realize the true meaning of needs and wants!

I’ll be excited for when we can get the #debtsnowball rolling again and beefing up the savings BUT for now I’m just grateful for what we’ve got... God’s protection❤️

  • In my weakness He is strong 💪🏽 It’s been a month since my accident and I have not worked out since then. I did one workout shortly after but didn’t want to risk it because my body was still inflamed so did not want to aggravate it further. 
I planned on doing yoga but my body craved something more challenging. So I did a 20 minute cardio workout from one of my fav programs. 💚

It was a struggle mentally and physically. 
I took lots of breaks. 
I was easily out of breath but I didn’t give up. 
𝘽𝙚𝙘𝙖𝙪𝙨𝙚 𝙨𝙡𝙤𝙬 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙖𝙙𝙮 𝙞𝙨 𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙚𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚. 👊🏽 I was proud 💜 I was able to do this move so well even though I felt so weak 😥 I have overcome so many physical obstacles and I know I can do it again - I just need time. 💫 Progress doesn’t happen suddenly.

Hey and remember, if you need help I’m always here for you so you don’t have to do this alone 😘.

  • In my weakness He is strong 💪🏽 It’s been a month since my accident and I have not worked out since then. I did one workout shortly after but didn’t want to risk it because my body was still inflamed so did not want to aggravate it further.
    I planned on doing yoga but my body craved something more challenging. So I did a 20 minute cardio workout from one of my fav programs. 💚

    It was a struggle mentally and physically.
    I took lots of breaks.
    I was easily out of breath but I didn’t give up.

  • Anything stealing your joy? Maybe a habit, memory, or circumstance?
.
So often, with David + Goliath, we put ourselves in the little shepherd boy’s shoes. “If I can be brave enough, I’ll take my giant down!”
.
But in Goliath Must Fall, @louiegiglio gave me a fresh perspective: “That’s a man-made interpretation. God didn’t choose David because of his bravery, strength, or past resume—but purely because of his FAITH. Because he trusted God.”
.
Whatever hindrances are robbing you today, know that 9’ tall is NOTHING TO HIM. Bring your battle to Jesus + let Him fight for you.💛
.
P.S. It’s Tuesday, which means I’m sharing this devo in my stories. If you want a face + voice behind the message (as well as Hazel’s interpretation😂🤣😂), click on over!

  • Fun short story:
It’s been almost a week since I made a pretty crazy decision. Being a SAHM + newbie full time entrepreneur, it’s been real tight financially for my Tribe. We decided to cut back, cook at home (we eat cleaner now), limit unnecessary spending, etc.
-
Last Friday, my husband and I decided it was time to give my car back (voluntary repossession). I was having a few anxiety attacks processing it... I didn’t care about the car, I cared about my ego and pride. I don’t have a steady job, I’m a Mom of two, my savings account is anorexic, my credit SUCKS, and I don’t have anything in my name. I was concerned about my husband leaving me with nothing (I overthink in a negative way at times) than looking at the bright side of things.
-
What could POSSIBLY be good about this Britnee? You live in a single room with your two kids + husband, you just screwed up your credit even more by giving your car back, you ain’t workin, and you are in debt! SHOW ME THE BRIGHT SIDE!
-
I don’t have a car BUT now I have money to save to move out (car note + insurance saves us a huge chunk). I don’t pay a single bill so I can focus on my business, worry free of sacrificing my earnings (hubby pays for everything 💁🏽‍♀️). I have horrible credit but the good thing is I don’t have anything on it, everything is in collections. Now I can work on the damage that’s already been done rather than fight to keep that ONE open line of credit in good standing + worry about collections. The bright side 🤷🏽‍♀️
-
So today I feel relieved that although nothing is in my name, I don’t have “independence” with my own car, and I don’t have a steady job at least the only way from here is up 🤷🏽‍♀️. When you’re at the LOWEST point in your life the only way out is UP! Pray, set goals, and have faith. Easier said than done BUT take it moment by moment, things will shape up 💛

Beautiful girls! ✨💕
This weekend I had the opportunity to go to a @vousconference in Miami. It was an incredible experience! One of the sessions I attended was called Sisterhood for Strength. It was about the importance of unity among women, why it’s important to SHOW UP, to STICK CLOSE to other like minded women, how to start a group for women in your community / church, the importance of healthy friendships and much more. Pastor @dawnchere gave this session and it was all pure gold! This Women Wednesday I will take over our insta stories and tell you everything I learned and I will also share the notes I took during the session!

  • You know what I used to think?

I used to think I was chained to this body.

Some awkward, introverted, girl who never fit in anywhere.

I was called a goodie goodie. I was told I hung out with the wrong people. I was told I didn’t dress the right way. I was told I wasn’t good enough. I was told I was a day dreamer. I was told that I wasn’t smart enough. I was told I  was a burden. I was told I was average.

I was called a nerd. I was told I was too young. I was told I wasn’t skinny enough. I was told I was a quitter. I was told my problems didn’t mean anything because I was too lucky to have problems, to be in pain, to struggle.

I was called some names that I can’t even type because they are so TERRIBLE that no one needs to read that crap.

I felt lost, I let my identity be tied to men and being in a relationship.

I hated the skin I was in and some days I felt like pulling it off. Not free to be me but not even knowing who me was.

I struggled, I thrashed, I revolted, I beat my pillow at night while screaming tears into a pillow, and then I got up the next day and tried to be who everyone wanted me to be.

God came for me. The way a good Father does. He came for me as His daughter. He took my hands that kept clawing at my skin that would never be what I wanted it to be and He held me tightly. He let me rest in Him and just be me. Right there in His arms.

Transformed this beaten up girl into a confident women.

My identity, it’s not wrapped up in skin and bones. It’s not being who they wanted me to be. It’s not wrestling for who I am. It’s wrestling for who He has made me to be.

Coming out of the fire, my scars are still there. They will always be because though I am not defined by my past, my past pushes me into my future.

Don’t EVER let ANYONE tell you who you should be sister. There is only One who defines you and He molded you in the most beautiful skin with the perfect identity for you.

Daughter of God.

Step out in the skin you are in.
