How I Landed a Three Book Deal as a First Time Author!


The BIGGEST surprise I received from God in 2017: signing a three book deal with Baker Publishing Group, one of the most prominent Christian publications out there! Not one, not two but THREE BOOKS! I will soon be able to call myself an author, like whaaaat 😭🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾


I won’t say much. The video says enough for itself! But here’s a quick message:


God has purposed EVERYONE — this includes you! He has MIGHTY plans for your life but are you willing to be a vessel?


Watch “How I Landed a Three Book Deal as a First Time Author” for my testimony and some much needed encouragement as you go into this new year ♥️

Gratitude Changes Things || Tips and Verses for a Grateful Heart

Are you going in circles? Around and around, you go — attempting to make progress but continuously finding yourself in the same predicament time and time again? Maybe, you’re not even making any moves at all — your life is at a standstill. You’re trying to open doors yourself and when you finally realize you can’t do it alone, you ask God… but He makes you wait.


On a job. On a family. On love. On growth.  


I noticed around this time of year, I’m a tad bit more irritable. I absolutely love the holidays because of Jesus (duh!) and family. I love the songs and events and movies. However, it is especially around this time where the weight of darker days and biting cold can further remind you of the things you lack.  


But it doesn’t have to.


Now can be the end of your discontent. Now can be the end of your frustration.


This post exists to encourage you to develop and maintain a heart of gratitude regardless of what you’re going through…regardless on what you’re waiting on.

Is This God’s Plan Or My Own? || Dressed for Battle Podcast Ep. 3


Why, God? How, God? You said what, God? Okay, maybe that was me, God. Have you ever questioned what God revealed to you? Have you ever asked Him, are you sure? He gave you signs. He whispered it into your spirit. He sent people to you. He spoke it loud and clear. And you believed Him…at least until life hit you. Brenda of Just Living for Jesus and I, took to the outdoors to sit down and discuss God’s plan. This year, she conquered believing in who God says she is. But now she’s struggling with accepting His word. She’s struggling with listening to Him.

You’ll discover how God wants to hear your questions and extinguish your doubts. You’ll learn to believe Him the first time. You’ll break out of the do’s and don’ts of Christianity and more into relationship. More into just living for Jesus. #dressedforbattlepodcast
