I Landed an Audiobook Contract for My Book: “Claim Your Crown!” | Recording in NYC Vlog + Testimony!


I signed another contract for “Claim Your Crown!” My book will now be on audio!!! And guess what? I’m the narrator ???


The point of this video is to illustrate that God can do MORE than our requests…more than what we thought we wanted…more than what we didn’t even think of at all. ⁣ ⁣


Yes, I believe in the power of prayer and earnestly seeking God for His “presence,” and not His “presents.” My specific prayer is that we remember in this season and all to come, just how BIG God is. ⁣ ⁣


We won’t always get what we desire but there will be gifts you don’t even ask for and God has the ability to do give them anyway! Check out my mini vlog for behind the scenes and my testimony ♥ ⁣Save & share this with someone who needs some encouragement!


? “Claim Your Crown” is available for preorder online at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads and more! (Link also in my bio!)

Overwhelmed? Here’s 1 Step You Need to Catch Up (& Win The Race)


I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus is calling us. – Philippians 3:14


There goes that feeling again – you know, that all too familiar feeling that seems to come out of nowhere and puts you into panic mode. Take deep breaths, they say. And so you try, but you find that that deep breath is trapped in your chest. You lay your hand on your heart – it’s beating at record speed. Your head begins to throb as you look down at what’s in front of you… and you don’t even know where to begin. 


Taking out your planner and opening several tabs on your computer, you simply…attempt to do it all. 


Have you ever felt like you were in a race to catch up? No, not with anyone else, but with yourself?

25 Biblical Affirmations to Build Your Confidence & Transform Your Life


What are you thinking about?


Probably a million of things. 


Okay, maybe not a million — but definitely between 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts… today. 


It’s proven. The National Science Foundation conducted a study and concluded that’s how many thoughts the average person has. Out of those, 80% of these thoughts are negative and 95% are the same thing we play over and over and over again.


This study was conducted in 2005 — before social media was all the rage it is now. So can you even imagine how much that number has increased?!


Actually, let’s not even think about that.


We don’t need science to know there’s power behind our thoughts — how our thoughts influence our lifestyle. We don’t need science to know self-criticism has the power to hold us back in a multitude of ways. 


What we need is a solution to fight back. The world chose affirmations; I choose the word of God.

8 Reasons Why You Should Share Your Testimony (What’s The Point?)


Last year, God kept dropping the number 8 in my spirit. At first, I didn’t think much of it… but then a woman on Instagram discovered my podcast page and commented on her studies in biblical numerology.


I launched Dressed for Battle Podcast on 8/8/18 because it seemed like a “cute” and memorable date. Little did I know, the number 8 biblically symbolize new beginnings.


When I found out, I was like “Whoa” – particularly because my verse of last year was Isaiah 43:19:

“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”


After experiencing a dark season in 2017, I began to really believe and feel God was getting ready to do a new thing in my life.

Your Budget-Friendly Dress to Impress Guide

I won “Most Likely to be on the Cover of Vogue” in high school. I haven’t yet graced the pages but I’ve never stopped dressing up as if I was!


I’ve mentioned before that I used to be super shy in school so it was always important to have my style do the talking for me. I began to really come out of my shell my senior year and by the time college and graduate school came around, my attitude was like, “hello world!”


Oh, and online classes were a blessing in graduate school for so many reasons but I would still sign in with a beat face and epic pajamas!


I’m a full believer in dressing up to conquer your day and so I’m here to drop some tips on how to dress to impress wherever you are. So yes, if you’re not in school, these tips can still apply to you! Life is full of lessons so we never really stop learning, do we?


Join me on a fun trip down memory lane with H&M’s 90s collection. You’ll find something to take your closet to the next level with their fashionable pieces and budget-friendly prices.

5 Things To Do When You’re Waiting for God To Move (Advice for Dry Seasons)

There’s a season for everything.


Right now, mine is one that’s an overwhelming and exhausting marathon. As I prepare for launching my first book, I’m also working on my second while simultaneously trying to maintain my social media presence, write consistently on my blog, post YouTube videos, interview and edit for my podcast, and write my biweekly newsletters.


Needless to say, it’s been exasperating trying to “keep up.” Things have settled down some since I solidified my schedule but it’s still difficult to keep going when it isn’t the season to see the fruits of my labor. I understand that but it still, such a weird place.


Especially because just a few months ago, I was doing even more! I went from traveling to different countries and cities for Teen Vogue to staying at home and working on the assignments and projects God gave to me.


Everything feels so still.


And quite frankly, I am completely over it. I want out!

50+ Songs About God’s Love – The Ultimate Playlist!


Recently, as I was scrolling on Instagram, I came across a preview to an official music video posted by Grammy-nominated Christian artist, Jamie Grace. She invited her followers to check out her official music video for “Bella” which shared her beautiful journey from marriage to giving birth to her daughter. 


Of course, I had to watch!


Asides from the screaming and changing diapers, I’m a complete sap when it comes to babies — particularly, baby girls. (They’re so fun to dress up, don’t you think?)


The sweet song slips into different languages and serenely captures how God calls us each His own. As I watched the new parents coo over their precious bundle of joy, I caught a sneak peek of what our Heavenly Father must feel as He holds us in His arms.


I couldn’t help but think of how God gushes over us, and sings to us a new song.

5 Easy Tips To Dress Modest with Style


My parents didn’t want me pursuing fashion. They had nothing against it. In fact, they are very much into dressing up and styling classic designer pieces. However, they are Carribean…which means: the best profession for their child is in the sphere of medicine or law. You know, something stable. Something safe.


I completely understood. However, there was no way a right-brainer like me would or could ever land in those professions.


They understood this, too.

5 Thrifting Tips for Christian Girls (+Try On Haul!)


My sisters and I used to groan every Saturday before church. They were loud, audible ones meant for our parents to hear from their bedrooms.


We had the “typical” issue: not having a clue what to wear.


One side of ours closets were extremely dressy with “church clothes” and the other side were “school clothes.” We wanted more options, options that served more than one purpose. Plus, we were so over the whole dress to impress shebang. We wanted to slay, of course, but we wanted to do it our way. Not to say our styles weren’t our own — they were. We just wanted out of the shmancy dress culture.


Thrifting was a saving grace. Okay, I’m being dramatic. We’ve only been a few times. We were introduced a couple of years ago and the thrifting world welcomed us into the land of mixing modern quality and vintage. Skirts and blazers and jumpsuits galore.


Sunday’s best traditionally means going all out in your best suit or dress and fancy heels but I’m here to show you, thrifting is a viable option to take on an unique, fashion-forward look for church.
