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”

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.”

The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.

About a year ago, I was right in the middle of a completely unfair circumstance. It was one of those rare moments in time when I actually didn’t do anything wrong, yet I was getting hit on every side. This wasn’t a TV show. It wasn’t a novel. There wasn’t some genius storyline behind theContinue reading “The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.”

All I want is all you’ve got.

In John 2, Jesus asked servants to fill water pots at a wedding that was out of wine. They filled six water pots up with water TO THE BRIM. Once they were finished, He turned their water into the finest wine of the day. God has consecrated this idea in my heart lately. It’s easyContinue reading “All I want is all you’ve got.”

“Do you love people enough that you are willing to be put in the fire for them?”

Chances are, you have a memory of something you were dared to do that probably wasn’t very smart.  Maybe it was a dare to jump off a cliff into shallow water in the dark, or to sneak onto the roof of the neighbor’s house.  I found myself in this position often and to be honest,Continue reading ““Do you love people enough that you are willing to be put in the fire for them?””

It’s time to win at writing.

If you’re anything like me, you have a bunch of big dreams and hustle. I keep finding myself in the crosshairs of ideas and clarity.  You know what happens when I find myself there? I freeze.  Perfectionism overwhelms me. The wrong voice wins. And instead of reaching my audience with the great content I’ve produced,Continue reading “It’s time to win at writing.”

Simple Gratitude #1

Sometimes, I just want to say thank you. Here’s my simple gratitude list for today: I’m in awe and wonder of a God that loves me infinitely more than I can even imagine. That not only sent His son to take my place on the cross and rise again for me, but also left meContinue reading “Simple Gratitude #1”

Are you taking care of yourself well?

Living a well-balanced life takes work, friends. One of the very practical things I had to learn in the last few years is how to take care of myself. Everyone has their own ideas of what self-care looks like. Some will say it’s about sleep and exercise. Others say it is spending time in silenceContinue reading “Are you taking care of yourself well?”

Dreams are nothing more than wishes unless backed by a willingness to invest and trust in the process.

Understanding the root of why we do, or want to do, something is critical to knowing we are operating with intentionality. Team Felicia likes to play this game with me often: When I say I feel a certain way, or I want to do something, the person on the other side of me will ask,Continue reading “Dreams are nothing more than wishes unless backed by a willingness to invest and trust in the process.”

IT COUNTS!

One week ago, I made a commitment to myself to post a blog every single day for 730 days. I’ll write a post later on why I chose two years and all the other things you want to know but here’s how I almost failed today. It’s 11:08pm CST and I am just now writingContinue reading “IT COUNTS!”
