The Beauty of Your Dreams

I am definitely in the small audience who loved the series, “The First Lady,” starring Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford, Viola Davis as Michelle Obama, and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt.
Although the criticism was loud and the series was cancelled after the first season, it is still nominated for 3 Emmy Awards.
The intention of the series is to reframe the idea of leadership through the feminine perspective, inclusive of family, relationships and contribution.
My point in sharing this is to encourage you to stay with your dreams. Your vision was given to you, in order to share it with others. Everyone will not understand your perspective. Some might even disagree with your point of view. In the end, there are those who will applaud you and reward your work. Those are your people!
I welcome the opportunity to learn more about your dreams. Comment below and let me know what you are working on.

Have you joined the Sister Support Circle yet?

Spiritual and Emotional trauma are just two of the often-ongoing consequences of experiencing a breast cancer diagnosis. My program, Managing Life After Crisis is a program designed to help women who have experienced crisis; heal from the experience, recover by managing resistance to healing and grow by implementing practical life strategies that promote confidence to progress through life with peaceful and positive intentions toward self.

This Sunday during the Sister Support Circle, we’re focusing on self-reflective processes that examine the relationship between trauma and healing, while utilizing creativity and peer support to create a healing framework.

Are you a breast cancer Survivor? If so, join the Circle to receive support and stay in the Circle to provide support.

The next 5 breast cancer Survivor’s to join The Sister Support Circle will receive a copy of the book, Manifesting Dreams, An Intention-Setting Guided Workbook.

Peace by Design

Sharing a few highlights of what I’ve been up to over the past few weeks. This is definitely the season of yes for me.

Answering the call to show up as a presenter and to share my custom program Socialize to over 70 corporate professionals was definitely a faith move on my part.
I am ecstatic to report that my out-of-the box style of solutioning was well received and met with great reviews.

Let’s talk about Creative Freedom 

Happy Sunday to you!

Today I am sharing one final lesson from my eBook Pray with Ease.

Creative Freedom 

Exercising Creative Freedom is much like wandering and exploring.

Have you ever taken a long walk in the woods or through a botanical garden? Maybe you’re adventurous and like to hike alongside a mountain waterfall.

When you have creative freedom in God’s word, it’s much like an exploration. You can freely move at your own pace and immerse yourself in everything that is around you while expressing your gratitude for the experience. 

Creative Freedom allows you to be bold, powerful and intentional. Once you set your intentions and find your Energy Enhancers take a moment to immerse yourself in the words. Explore the scriptures and feel the inspiration that is embedded within. 

Focused Intention + Energy Enhancers + Creative Freedom = The Ability to Pray with Easy

You are now ready to pray those bold, powerful, impactful prayers!

Here is a list of a few of my favorite tools for enhancing spiritual wellness: 

  • T.D. Jakes Woman Thou Art Loosed Bible 

  • The Bible Experience Old & New Testament 

  • Woman Evolve by Sarah Jakes Roberts

  • Journal & Writing Pen 

I wish you great success in all of your endeavors.
