What is your definition of faith and inspiration?
My definition of faith is believing in something that you don’t see or fully understand but making the choice to believe anyway. Spirituality has everything to do with the soul, which is who we are to the core, it’s what resonates with truth and separates the real from the fake. I believe its the spiritual side of us that leads us to faith, and what we ultimately believe in.
What are some examples of trial and tribulations you faced in your life that made you want to clinch onto your faith?
Wow, there are so many trials, I choose now to call them experiences and life lessons. At a young age, though I grew up in the church with a family of faith, I was also exposed to mental, physical, verbal abuse and neglect. I was able to see how my parents faith helped them to transform into better individuals, so that helped my faith a lot. I’m recently going through a divorce from a man that I loved with every ounce of my being. We were together for 12 years with two beautiful sons, and I was absolutely devastated after learning of his infidelity, but God has been my rock. My faith was all that I had at the time and I know I wouldn’t be here today without it.
How did you handle these trials and what made you not fully give up?
I began to dig deeper into my estranged relationship with the lord. I saturated my atmosphere with worship and personal development daily and had to surrender everything to him. God’s love was reckless and relentless toward me though, just as he promises. He found me where I was lost, he chased me down and delivered me as I took baby steps closer to him. To be honest, so many times there was nothing I could do at all but cry, I couldn’t even get out of bed some days or mumble a word, but my heart longed for him.
What advice would you give other women based on your belief?
One thing I say all the time is If you DON’T know him, you should TRY HIM. If you DO know him, seek him much deeper.
How has your faith help propell you in your work industry?
I’ve only been successful when I put God first. I’ve learned there’s no other option than to let him lead, otherwise it’s all temporary.
How has your faith guided you throughout life and other opportunities within you career?
A lot of times it has been through trial and error. Just learning from my mistakes. Whenever something has been off with an opportunity it was because I didn’t properly consult with God, but either way I still won because it was a lesson. The biggest lesson of all is, every opportunity isn’t a good one, and even if it is good, that doesn’t mean it’s right for me.
What does it mean to you to be an empowered woman of faith?
It means everything to me to be an empowered woman of faith. To be empowered means I have some skin in the game. I’ve learned a few things and have recognized my God given power and authority. Now I can help so many others on their journey of becoming as well.
