Your Obedience -> Your Miracles

God rarely removes obstacles from our way, but He always makes a way through them through obedience. Think about it. He gave Noah a way through the Ark. He gave Moses a way through by splitting the Red Sea. He gave Daniel a way through the lion’s den. He gave Jonah a way through theContinue reading “Your Obedience -> Your Miracles”

March 7, 1997: Mile-Marker

Twenty four years ago today, my little 6-year-old world came crashing down on what should have just been a normal Friday of first grade and playing with my friends. Our neighbor across the street was also one of my best friends. His mom would pick me up and let me play at their house onContinue reading “March 7, 1997: Mile-Marker”

Two Years: Pressure = Diamonds

Two years ago today, life was normal. And then two years ago tomorrow happened. I put a lot of stock in dates. I remember the first time I ever stepped into my church, the date I got my real estate license, the day my dad fell out of the sky, the day of my near-fatalContinue reading “Two Years: Pressure = Diamonds”

You are essential to THE story.

Growing up, I struggled with the belief that God messed up with me. Some days, I honestly believed that God had a factory in Heaven with ideas for new babies and I somehow slipped past quality control. Like if He had noticed me before it was too late, He would have tossed me out withContinue reading “You are essential to THE story.”

Personal growth plans, reasons or results and my word for 2021

2015 = Service. 2016 = Courage. 2017 = Redemption. 2018 = SHIFT. (Surrender/Humility/Inspire/Flourish/Trust) 2019 = Accelerate. 2020 = Expectation. Every year, I put together a personal growth plan for Team Felicia. I start with ONE word and then build a roadmap for my entire year based on it. I include a vision statement, goals, commitmentsContinue reading “Personal growth plans, reasons or results and my word for 2021”

Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions

Male lions roar something fierce. They are loud and terrifying when they are on the hunt. Do you know what is more ferocious than a male lion? A lioness. The way the lions survive is they enclose their prey. When the prey hear the roar of the male, they will turn to run in fearContinue reading “Avoid regret by standing your ground with lions”

Find a place to check the “rockstar” at the door

This one won’t pertain to everyone. It might be specifically for my fellow Enneagram 3 performer/achiever types. I’m a rockstar and I’m proud of it. I am really good at a lot of things. You are too. If you don’t feel like you are, it’s probably because you’re doing the wrong things or you haven’tContinue reading “Find a place to check the “rockstar” at the door”

Confidence is a smart soldier.

“As a confidence coach, what would you say to yourself right now if this version of you were your client?” My therapist asked a great question a few weeks ago when I was riding the wave right out of confidence into arrogance. Two days later, I was getting pulled under. That’s when you know it’sContinue reading “Confidence is a smart soldier.”

Beauty rises from the ashes

I wasn’t going to share this today because it’s a beautiful day and I don’t want to ruin it, but then I felt some conviction. Sometimes, telling the stories of how God brings beauty from the ashes is exactly what we need to build our faith and encourage others in theirs. Three years ago today,Continue reading “Beauty rises from the ashes”

Going deeper into confidence

I talk about confidence a lot, which is good since I call myself a confidence coach. But what if we went a little deeper? Would that be okay with you? Let’s start with what confidence is NOT. It is NOT arrogance, self-centeredness, ego, pride or being a jerk. The world tells us having confidence isContinue reading “Going deeper into confidence”
