Greetings, beautiful people! Happy Sunday! Recently (if you have to hear about it) I merged and transitioned into a business on May 24, 2019. You can read it about it on my ministry site at loveisalifestyle.org. Although I’ve never asked for funds during my seven years in ministry (I have worked to fund my own ministry), this article and interview from Desiring God (Ask Pastor John interview from September 26, 2018) does explain some of the reasons why I decided to transition into a business. I’ve worked with so many different people during my seven years in ministry, and am grateful to each one. I also blogged about my purpose and calling on the site as well.
I enjoy using the gifts and talents that God has given me, and will continue to do so through another avenue – which I have explained in some detail, but more details are to come. Yes, it is still Gospel-centered.
Below is a poetic explanation of some of what I’ve endured in ministry, and I’ve always known that Christ is infinitely better. I pray you enjoy what I’ve written.
Ladies, join with a man who loves your CONFIDENCE.
“This is what true beauty looks like: Confident enough to step into a church and ace a 5-person interview with ease. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to be used by God all over the internet for years without ever snapping a picture. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to step into a 33+ year Christian organization every day and lead employees, train volunteers, and stop shows. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to showcase my superb writing skills wherever and however God leads me to without being paid for it. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to show up at a city-wide book fair and speak about my book and my ministry to fellow book lovers, writers, publishers, educators, and teachers. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to make men praise the name of Jesus at the sound of my voice. In a natural hair bun.
Confident enough to preach and teach the Good News and the Gospel of Jesus Christ to EVERY person in my sphere of influence consistently – and with boldness and true courage. In a natural hair bun.
This is what true beauty looks like. I don’t slay with my looks or my body – although I could. I slay with my spirit and my heart.
Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised (Proverbs 31:30).
This beauty is a humble beast all by herself – and she’s still being blessed by a King. So don’t try me. You better try Jesus. Because He’s infinitely better. ❤
Is it time yet? Absolutely. 😃 Slay, Queen.”
