You've Got to Know It!

Beautiful, intelligent, and just crazy amazing----The whole world knows it, but what do you think? When you see yourself, what do you think? When you walk into a room, what do you think? Or, when you start the journey of a new relationship, what do you think? Are you flooded with the expectations, thoughts and opinions of others? Do your own thoughts, voice, and ideas drown in the sea of "what are THEY going to think?"

 

I feel that we as women all go through a season of suffocating under the weight of man's approval. I know I did,  but let me tell you how I finally breathed in new life! The first thing that had to happen, was for me to see the fight for what it truly was! These weren't innocent little thoughts that came with no agenda. No! They were vicious lies planted to confuse me about my worth and halt my progression forward! The enemy knew that if I Believed that I was inadequate; then I would live from that place and inadequacy would be all that I could see. 

 

The moment that light bulb came on, everything changed! I began everyday to fight to only speak out those things that my Daddy says about me! I'm priceless! I'm a daughter! I'm equipped for every good work! Just to name a few! I noticed the days of feeling defeated, muzzled, and insignificant became few and far between! 

 

Ladies get in this fight for your SELF WORTH! This is a real war that we have to win! We are incapable of living right without first seeing ourselves right! Brave Woman----You are EVERYTHING to God! Make sure the world knows that YOU know that as well!! 

 

BE BOLD

BE BRAVE

BE FEARLESS

BE UNAPOLOGETICALLY YOU!

I Celebrate Today!

For the past few days, the enemy has bombarded my internal space with every reason to give up on the things I fought hard to begin. He gets us in moments where we feel like we are failing as a wife, mother, daughter, and even in the area of helping to encourage others. We begin to ponder, "What makes me special?!" "Daddy, who am I anyway?!" "Do I have anything of value to give?!" Read More

​ The Power of Finding YOUR VOICE!

Have you ever been asked to define yourself? Who is Jackie? What makes you…YOU? One of my mentors hit me with this question the other day, and it rung in my ears and heart ALL day long. When you think about it, it really isn’t a new question, though is it? Haven’t we all been guilty at some point of moving through life asking other people this same question about ourselves? All because we were unsure of the true answer to the question? We may not have overtly just came out and asked, but we would be screaming this same question nonetheless, through our actions that were seeking validation or through compromises to feel more wanted or valued. All in all, everyone goes in pursuit of finding the answer to this question. Some may call it human nature but I truly believe it's God’s programming that causes this longing to know who we are and our voice.

I want to propose a prescription that will help eradicate several diseases all at once. Read More

Priceless We Remain...

Self-worth:

When I hear the word self-worth, the first thing I begin to think of is VALUE. What value do you as a person feel you embody? In today's time, this is a dangerous topic because we equate our degrees, marital status, and even things such as being a good homemaker, to be the sum of our worth. So what happens if the marriage fails, or the degree was attained 20 years ago? Do we then believe that our self-worth has diminished? Read More
