10 Powerful Lessons I Learned As a Financial Counselor

In Phenomenal

A few years ago, I was a financial counselor for a credit union. My role was to help members who were denied loans and lines of credit to learn how to manage their finances better. Part of the re-application process was to work with me to learn how to budget, read their credit reports, build up savings, and more so they can develop long-term healthy financial practices, and grow their credit score. After working with me and meeting other financial conditions, they were eligible to re-apply for credit.  During that time, I worked with a variety of families across demographics…

In Faith, Phenomenal

The day that the ”Navigating the “Impossible”: A Survival Guide for Single Moms From Pregnancy Through The First Year Of Motherhood” books arrived, I went to post a picture of the day’s harvest from my garden. Usually, when I harvest vegetables, I post a picture of the harvest on social media. However, this particular day, the picture and my that day’s harvest and it meant more to me than it normally did. Normally, I post my harvest for fun and to encourage others that a home garden is totally doable, fun, and healthy. Plus, I want other single moms to…

I started a YouTube channel! To get started, I set a goal to upload 2 videos per week to build the channel. One video per week is dedicated to teaching a Bible study.

However, one week (well truthfully for multiple weeks) I wasn’t walking in obedience to God – I didn’t do the weekly video about my personal journey of…

If you’re looking for a sign, then this is it

In Entrepreneurship, Phenomenal

“If you’re looking for a sign, then this is it.” ‼️ These words rang true in my mind today. I literally opened up my Facebook app and came face to face with something I knew, yet I didn’t want to admit.  I was running.  Running from God.  Running from what I am called to do.  Why? Fear. The crazy thing about fear is that I know I am amazing, brilliant, talented, and to work with me (or be connected with me) means your life will be better.  Yet fear, that insidious roach, at times would creep in and have me…

Do You Need A Social Media Break?

In Phenomenal

Do You Need A Social Media Break? Am I the only one who can get distracted by social media? I spoke to a friend of mine one day and she told me she was taking a social media break. She said that every time she logged onto social media she began to feel bad about herself. She began to feel like she wasn’t enough and that she wasn’t worthy. Her story really impacted me, because I too can get overwhelmed by social media. I’ve noticed that if my mind isn’t guarded in gratitude for what I have and for who…
