  • Let me tell you about the time I *almost* moved to Alabama, pursued the wrong degree, and went $100K+ in debt! 🙅🏼‍♀️ . After spending my first two years at a community college, the time had come to transfer to a university. I was torn between two schools with two different programs. Michigan State University for Advertising or University of Alabama for Public Relations. Both of these schools were ranked top in the nation for their particular programs. When it came time to decide, I thought PR was the path I wanted to pursue (and I mean moving to Alabama seemed pretty cool at the time too 🤷🏼‍♀️). . It was July 2013 and I had every intention of moving to Alabama that August. Classes were picked and new living arrangements made. But something was... off. . It was around the middle of July when my dad sat me down one afternoon to talk. He simply asked me if I was *really* passionate about PR (later I found out God had told him to ask me this). After a lot of talking, crying, and getting real about my passions, pursuing Advertising made so much more sense to me. And at the last second I was able to make the switch from Alabama to attending Michigan State that fall. . It was a tough decision, especially after telling so many people I was going to Alabama (😏)...but man oh man did God have a plan! . Not only was I able to graduate from MSU with NO DEBT (PTL🙌), I also learned a special set of skills that I would’ve neverrr gotten if I were to have pursued PR. . As the creator, designer, copywriter, and marketer for my first product I have in the works - I’m doing it ALL 🙃. And man am I so GRATEFUL to have the skills to do that! My degree from MSU has basically set me up perfectly for entrepreneurialism (PTL!! 🙌). . Moral of the story? Humble yourself before God. Seek HIS will for your life. Things will fall into place so much easier and will be BETTER than you could’ve ever thought. Oh, and the other great thing about going to MSU? I gained my AMAZING hubby out of the process too! 🥰 . . . #femaleentrepreneur #thankyouJesus #MichiganState #entrepreneur #followpeace #walkbyfaith #Godisgood #testimony #GodsPlan #success #mystory #destiny #peace #selah #faith

  • Someone once told me that happiness is a joke. I believe that you can be genuinely happy with a grateful heart; choosing to be happy in the middle of your seasons of life is actually quite admirable. #lovepeople #followpeace #bekind • “When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” - John Lennon Always assume @kimberlydovi took my professional photos. Because she did.

  • I think sometimes we confuse the call of God with the permission of God. The call of God is to get your attention or give you a heads up of how He will get glory out of your life but He has not necessarily given you permission to start. He called you so you can begin to prepare both by your own strength/intentionality and by sovereignty of God over your life, leading you both in struggles and seasons of rest. He has to teach you first. This is especially true for those called according to Ephesians 4:11-12. God often times, after the call, will process you by trials and suffering. He is trying to mature you. James 3:1 said we should not run to becoming teachers because God will judged them harsher. This means that if God has called you to preach, teacher, leadership or anything like that, then you should KNOW fully and be consistently DOING the word of God. Jesus said how can the blind lead the blind? You have to take the plank out of your eyes first. So until God has taught you and processed you to a level He seems fit, He has not given you permission to start as yet, no matter what your pastor, prophet or mama said. You will know when it is time, you will not miss it. His peace will be there and your mind will be on the harvest and glorifying God, not yourself. #SelfCheck be real with yourself. Do you feel ready to do the thing? Have you prepared, extensively? Do not skip over logic, God works in logic. Is your heart pure or filled with self? Is there peace? Are you getting stuck, confused even? Let's not confuse the desires of our hearts with the "go head" of God. #CallvsPermission *Side note* Most everyone in the bible that did a great work for God, got the call but didn't get permission until at least 30. Except for Elihu, he gets gets a pass. Yet even he still yielded himself to the elders before he corrected them with truth. Plus, how old was he anyways😅? Until permission comes, work what He has trusted you with so far. #FollowPeace 💕💕

  • Thankful❤️ It’s amazing what happens when we simply get our own agenda out of the way & really keep our hearts wide open to God’s plan - open to doing whatever He leads even (& ESPECIALLY when it’s not what we would naturally necessarily want to do). It’s so good to know that because God is Love & He loves us with everything He is we can TRUST Him knowing that He knows us better than we know ourselves & He always has the best surprises for us❤️ Ok gonna be super transparent to show ya an ex. of what I mean - after going through one of the worst times of my life, I knew in my heart that I should move back to a specific state that NEVER in a million yrs I’d naturally pick & wanna go back to if I had it my way - #1, it’s landlocked #eww lol & #2, bad memories definitely made it unappealing to me. But the peace in my heart far overrode all the “reasons” in my head - like Col. 3:15 says, “And let the peace from Christ rule (act as umpire continually) in your hearts [deciding and settling with finality all questions that arise in your minds, in that peaceful state] to which you were called to live.” Love that verse!❤️ Just like in a baseball game, we can give place to & allow God’s peace in our hearts to be the umpire that regardless of all the outside noise/opinions, we yield to & let peace make the final call: settling with FINALITY all questions in our minds {God never leads by pressure, but peace!}🙌 It’s kinda like this: Following the PEACE He puts in our heart enables us to discover the next PIECE of the puzzle for our lives😉He makes it so simple for us! Step by step just keep following the peace He leads us by & look back amazed by God saying “WOW” - look at all He has done & brought to pass!🙌 God is so Faithful! He loves you. He cares about your life even more than you do {& that’s saying a lot hah!😜} We can trust Him. Follow Him. When we do (in both the big & small things) we experience so many amazing blessings that we could never come up with or ever make happen on our own - only God! Like in that one ex I shared, I am SO thankful I followed Him - could come up with a long list of all the surprises He had for me, with these girls at the very TOP!😘

  • Another nugget of wisdom from morning quiet time. Have you ever reasoned your way into doing something you had no peace over in your heart? Have you ever persisted in something that you had to struggle hard for which you sensed God had not called you to nor had He graced you for? (God's grace provides a supernatural blessing to do things that look hard or impossible while not feeling overly burdened. For example as a teenager God graced me to provide for my family financially working 3 part time jobs on top of school). #spiritualguidance #followpeace #holyspirit #heartnothead #grace #ministerlife #letitflow

  • I've had this song running thru my head the last week or so. I have come to learn this year to really just trust God. That sounds so simple, right? I thought it was my faith that needed to be strengthened, only to find out my faith was strong but my trust was another story entirely. I filtered God's ability to protect, provide and love me based on how people displayed trust. Thank God for 1) grace to grow 2)true freedom from wrong thinking. Over the last few weeks, in the middle of the chaos that is my life right now, I've dug in my heels and cling to peace. And in that peace, I have found how very sweet it is to trust Jesus. Things still look crazy. Things still look impossible. Things still appear stuck. But.....Tis so sweet to trust on Jesus. Just to take Him at His Word He is a faithful God! He will do what He said! #trust #followpeace #impreachingtomyself

हैरान सा फलक है ।
एक नूर ही नूर सा ,
अब आसमान तलक है।।
