I've never been so involved in Women's History Month before, but I'm really enjoying it. I love remembering the empowering women who made history before me. These women of different races, cultures and talents fought for unity, peace and love. Because they stood, I stand today. What moves me most is to think how these famous women were intentionally selfless. They saw inequality and division and decided to become brave and brilliant in the midst of opposition. All for a common purpose: to change the future for all women; me and you. 

You know what else? Women are still making history today. Recently, God placed it on my heart to show off some of the amazing women of my generation. While I am honoring those women who were among the first entrepreneurs, politicians, activists, artists, teachers, leaders and world changers in America, I am also honoring the women today of my generation who are the modern day Susan B Anthony's and Harriet Tubman's; the Eleanor Roosevelt's and the Rosa Park's.

In remembering all of these courageous women, I am compelled to remember that we, the women of today, are following the marks of our sisters before us who first followed the marks of our Lord, Jesus. The Mary's, Ruth's and Ester's. The Rahab's, Sarah's and alike. These women are the ones who followed the example of Christ. As we depend on Him to guide our steps as women today, let us be faithful to obey His plan for each of us and as we go deeper, let us cause others around us to do the same - to be courageous women who make history just by living out our God-given purpose in fullness. Then, let this be the ripple effect for the change that we so desperately pray for in our world today.


To the women of my generation, thank you. Thank you for continuing to make history. Thank you for being bold and bright. You are amazing just by choosing to be women with intention and purpose. May we never forget our dreams and may we always take a stand knowing we are never alone. Your efforts, small and large, are making a difference for a better tomorrow; for me and you and for the generations to come. 


Enjoy these images of some of my favorite and inspiring women in my life. Attached to their photos are their own websites, blogs and profiles. 

I am so thankful to know them and celebrate them a little extra this month. 

Celebrate and support our women along with me and let's continue to make history together, shall we?

Love,

I believe that God has created us all uniquely beautiful and gifted in our own special ways and only we can fulfill what he has created us for, which is why it is so important not to try to be anyone else but to embrace the uniquely beautiful and talented person God created you to be. A perfect creator created you in his image and you are exactly who he wants you to be. I think as women we need to embrace and support each other's differences because we all need each other. I can't do what you were created to do and you can't do what I was created to do.. it's a beautiful puzzle and we all fit perfectly together. "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Life is a journey, not meant to be confined by limited thinking and the fear of leaving our comfort zones. Appreciate everything about where you are in your journey right now but be determined not to stay there. There's beauty and divine purpose in everything, but there is always, always more.

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. - Prov. 3:5 & 6 [MSG] If you were your own role model, would your 8 year old self be proud of who you are right now? Be consistent and remember that if it was easy, it wouldn't be worth it.

"Where I create there I am true." I think that goes along with "if you don't have it, make it" which is what my mom always told me. If I didn't have a princess crown growing up, she told me to make one. If I didn't have a necklace, she told me to make one. It's funny how that applied to me back then and how it STILL applies to me right now. It taught me to never give up, to push myself and to realize that I'm truly capable.

In learning how to embrace who I am, I had to grasp the fact that His body was not beaten & bruised with scars on His back so that I could be someone else. He died for me to be me. To see me the way He sees me. "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11

Own who you are. You are enough. How you choose to show up magnetizes what shows up for you. The more you love yourself and your decisions, the less you need others to love them. Be unapologetically yourself and use your strengths to uplift those around you.

stay true to yourself. it's easy to get caught in a world where you listen to what other people think you should be but majority of the people that have seen success did it by being different & themselves.

You are stronger than you know, and life, and the hard moments, the moments that knock the air out of you don't last forever, because we have a good God, who loves us, whether we know him or not, the sun will eventually shine on us if we hold on. "The darkest hour is just before the dawn" -Thomas Fuller

The secret to self-care: mindfulness. Stop whatever you are doing, close your eyes, breathe deeply, and observe the sensations of being alive. Feel the ground beneath your feet, and listen to the sounds of your surroundings. Feel the tension in your body, and listen to the thoughts in your mind. Breathe deeply. Release the tension. Do not resist the thoughts. Love yourself exactly as you are in this moment. If you long for who you used to be or who you might become, that is okay. Let go of self-judgment. You are not your thoughts, impulses, diseases, disorders, or insecurities. Those are your experiences. And if you need help, ask for it. We are all in this together.
