Did you know that your voice holds power? I don’t know what’s been holding you back from speaking up but I do know that the impact you possess is a God-given gift. Please don’t waste another precious moment holding your breath! The world needs to hear the message God has put on your heart. The world is waiting for the resurrection power of God’s love. The world is waiting for you to speak up and tell your story.
It is our duty to not only share our testimonies but to also defend the oppressed. When our voices are amplified, we serve those who go unheard and honor God. It’s a weighty calling but the crown was reserved for you.
- Heard the call to create but don’t know where to start,
- Want to post with purpose but your insecurities stop you every time,
- Want to boldly share your beliefs but you don’t know how to begin the conversation,
- Desire to take a stand but you’re afraid of the backlash,
I would love to help you!
