Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

How To Build Your Life Gods Way

How To Build Your Life Gods Way

Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. – Matthew 7:24

This is the season where God is recruiting more messengers, visionaries, and women than ever before.

To accomplish your mission, we have to shift from being a body of Believers to a body of BUILDERS.

What’s the mission at hand? Your purpose, your calling and your assignment.

I have no doubt that you desire to maximize your life and your God potential.

But sometimes it’s not so CLEAR how to do that. God’s way of building is different than ours.
After all, His ways are higher than our ways.

In today’s message, I have some advice on building your house — your BIG dream and vision — with Godfidence and on solid rock, not shifting sand..

Watch it now to see where God is leading you to build next, and make sure to join the #Godfidence conversation at the bottom of the video.

Tell me, where in your life is God directing you to solid rock and away from shifting sand?
I’d love to hear… let me know below in the comments.

How To TRUST in God’s Timing

How To TRUST in God’s Timing

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials
of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith
produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its
full effect, that you may be perfect and complete,
lacking in nothing. —James 1:2-4

Time and time again, I get to learn that God is more concerned with trust than talent.

More committed to our character than our career.

And, more interested in obedience than sacrifice.

Because of our desire to get what we want when we want it, though, we naturally tend to rush the process and try to put God on our timeline. We set our expectations high, create our own schedule and start racing toward that finish line. Then when our great expectations aren’t met, we feel frustrated because we haven’t met our goals.

I want to tell you that there is something that God wants more than your speed, your hard work and your mighty effort.

God wants your TRUST. (My acronym for TRUST, if you haven’t heard it before, is Total Reliance Upon Spiritual Timing.)

Not easy, right?

That’s because we want to orchestrate.

We want to direct.

We want to control.

Truth is, however, that we simply don’t know what’s best for us. We certainly don’t have Heaven’s vantage point.

And if we’re not careful we can get in the way of God’s intended blessing for us.

Think about Noah. Noah was obedient and patient. These qualities protected him and preserved his legacy and family. He trusted God’s instruction even when others doubted him.

He took the time to build the ark. After the flood, he sent a raven and a dove to “test” the land to see if it was ready for them. Then he waited for a clear sign that it was time. When the dove returned with a branch, Noah knew that the place for his “feet” was not ready. He knew that water still covered the land.

What would have become of Noah and his family if he’d ignored this message and decided that it was the right time to step out?

Noah’s story is a perfect example of the 5 steps required in truly TRUSTing God.

1. Press Pause. I like to say that “patience is protection.” As a coach and catalyst who helps MOVE people into the action side of faith, I am used to doing, creating, and producing. Being more patient is not always easy for me. But in order to experience the brilliant plans God has for me, I know I have to let the Brilliant One lead me.

2. Ask God for Confirmation. Seek first the kingdom and ask for a clear picture of what God intends for you. God will send you messages. Just like Noah’s dove, you’ll get a phone call at the right moment, bump into the right person or suddenly see the right path appear. But you need to ask Him, not your girlfriends of Facebook buddies…  Even though I believe in seeking wise counsel, there is no substitute for talking directly to God about His plans for you and your life.

3. Pay Attention to Your Intuition. The nudges you receive are God’s inspirational messages to you. Create quiet time to pray and listen. If you get an idea out of the blue to call someone specific, call them. Learn to listen, especially in times of stress or anxiety. A few moments of rest, prayer and meditation always reconnect you to what God is trying to tell you.

4.  Prepare While You Wait. Waiting is not a passive act. Preparing enables you to be ready to “step out” when the timing is right. Keep working diligently where you are, enjoying life, serving God and reaching out to others while you wait.

5. TRUST. Remember, we’re talking about TOTAL reliance. Not just part of you. Stop trusting the wrong things—yourself, your experience, your intellect. You need to trust with your whole heart because miracles aren’t going to happen if you give God just a small piece of your trust.So… even when you are frustrated, remember that every detour, delay and speed bump in your life has been divinely orchestrated.

Remember, God knows the ideal timing for you to arrive at your destination. God is the one who created time and He is in control. You’re never behind when you trust Him, listen to Him and follow Him.

Tell me, where are YOU struggling with trusting God’s timing?

What lesson do you think God is trying to teach you about patience, spiritual intimacy, and preparation? Where do you get stuck?

Let me know below. I look forward to hearing from you.

How to Find Your Marketplace Message

How to Find Your Marketplace Message

Do not be anxious how you are to speak or what you are to say, for what you are to say will be given to you in that hour.
—Matthew 10:19

I talk to a LOT of entrepreneurs, speakers and leaders each week. And just about all of of them–especially if they are attracted to working with the Godfidence Business School–are extremely focused, proactive go-getters.

But what they also share is that they struggle with finding their message—what they are going to say, how they are going to say it, where they will share it and so on. And what they usually tend to do when they are in this situation is think more, write more and worry more in order to find it.

Here’s my never-fail 3-step secret to finding your marketplace message.

1. Look at God’s message.

That’s right…  Consider Christ for a minute. He came, He walked the Earth, and He was all that ever could be embodied into a human body. That’s what I believe.

But when you look at His message, it was not about just who He was, it was about what he offered. It was about the invitation. It was about the transformation. It was about something that people were seeking for themselves.

His  message had nothing to do with, “Look at me!”  He used the method of attracting people’s hearts, not by focusing on Himself, but speaking to their hearts.

2. Stop thinking about yourself.

One of the biggest traps is when you believe your message is something that’s all about you. You (and you are not alone!) can get so caught up in how you sound, what words you use, how you come across, and exactly what aspect of you will connect with your ideal client. Big mistake! The most authentic and compelling messages arrive from when you keep your focus on who you serve and what that person needs.

And, here’s the most important thing.

3. Don’t worry so much.

That’s it. The secret is not to work or think or scheme more. The secret is simply to shift your focus.

I promise you this: One of the big reasons you remain confused about your voice and message is that you are still thinking about yourself. “What am I going to share? How am I going to share it? Everyone else sounds so together…” Sound familiar?

In order to step into all you are meant to become and to receive the fullness of the message you are truly here to deliver, you have to take the focus off yourself.

Keep your focus on who you serve and what is going on with them.
What you are to say will be given to you.

So here is what you should ask yourself:  What stirs your spirit?  What impact do you want to have on others?  If there was one thing—just one message—you could share with others….what would that one thing be?

The key is to realize that God speaks to us as a voice. You are not a voice…you ARE voice. Your life is a message. You have something to say. You have something amazing to share. It doesn’t have to be complex. It just has to reflect the heartbeat of Heaven. That’s why you’re here. To be voice and vehicle for the Most High God.

So tell me, what is YOUR message?

I’d love to hear your thoughts—please share below in the comments.

[Godfidence TV] 5 Ways to Overcome Perfectionism

[Godfidence TV] 5 Ways to Overcome Perfectionism

There is no one who always does what is right,
not even one.

—Romans 3:10

I know you’re probably like me… You want to present your best and operate in excellence. You want to live as the Bible describes—a life worthy of the calling you’ve been given.

And that’s all good.

But do you know one of the biggest blessing blockers I see?
It’s perfectionism.

God doesn’t require us to be perfect before we step into our purpose.

We add that pressure ourselves… especially us women.

I believe perfectionism is actually a sign of distrust—a sign that we don’t trust God to perfect that which concerns us. The Bible tells us He will do that, and we don’t have to worry about it.

God only asks our surrender, obedience and trust.

Perfectionism runs rampant in women. We never feel prepared enough, smart enough, thin enough, or good enough. This keeps us stuck in the paralysis of analysis.

Does this sound like you?

Do you keep getting ready to get ready?

Here are my 5 best tips to overcome perfectionism:

1. Stop perfecting, start practicing. Start leaping. Be OK without holding those highest of high standards.

2. Lower the bar. Women tend to raise the bar so high it’s almost too high for us to reach. I’m going to give you one secret I tell my clients: Paid is better than picky! The people who tinker and keep perfecting never make money. They never launch.

3. Learn to delegate and give tasks to others. Outline the process for them—but remember that no one ever will do it exactly like you do. Keep in mind…. Christ had a crew.

4. Get support. You need people around you who believe in you. Don’t end up in isolation—you can’t manifest your purpose by yourself.

5. Start before you’re ready. Ready does not exist. Listen… there is NO such thing as being fully ready.

Stop waiting for a sign that you’re ready. If God has given you a recurring tug, that is all you need. That is your DIvine Okay. That’s your approval that you are ready for such at time as this and you have been called.

You’re walking in the shoes of Esther and Daniel and Moses—and none of them felt ready, either!

God only requires that you say YES.

Hey, superwoman… you really can take off that cape now.

Just say yes and take the first step.

Godfidence is using the power within you to manifest the life that God has always intended around you.

He’s getting ready to bless your socks off.

3 Simple Ways To Align With Your Purpose

3 Simple Ways To Align With Your Purpose

Share This Blog Post:

Purpose is my business. This is not something that I do just as a hobby. Sometimes it’s amazing to me that I started out this scrawny little girl with pigtails, big Coke-bottle eyeglasses, and a label of “problem child.” It’s hard to really grasp that I’ve gone from that awkward place as a kid in the South to where I am now… living in the sweet spot of my purpose and my divine assignment.

To awaken your purpose, you must ask God who He has always intended for you to become-not just ask Him to bless your plans.
#Godfidence

And that sweet spot? That’s what I want for you.

However, I talk to so many people who feel stuck. Maybe you feel stuck right now. You might think you’re living your purpose, but, I’ve got to tell you—if you’re feeling stuck, you probably aren’t.

Here are 3 simple ways you can start (today!) aligning with your purpose—and living in the sweet spot like I know you yearn to do.

1. Start making decisions. Not from fear, but from where you want to be. You have to stop letting Little Me guide you. And you have to eliminate all the excuses keeping you from deciding. What happens is that when you make up your mind, your mind begins to make things happen. The unmade choices that are inside of you and around quickly get overwhelming–and, believe me,  they keep you small and far from your purpose.

The root of the word “decide” is “to kill off” (think homicide, suicide) as in killing off all other options. Making decisions actually clears your path. So start making some decisions today—and take what does not need to be thought about now off the table. Simplify what’s on your mind and all around you. Your way to your purpose will be much clearer.

#2. Set new goals. Create a clear vision for what you want to do… with specificity. And you have to set deadlines–if you don’t have deadlines you just have dreams.  I love to say “dreams without deadlines become a disaster.” And while you have those natural G0d-given gifts, gifts without a game plan go nowhere.  It’s your responsibility to be a good steward and multiply and expand the gifts you’ve been given. Those gifts are a critical piece of living in your purpose… you’ve got to have a plan to share them.

#3.  Find community and accountability. Get yourself around other people who are like-minded, powerful and brilliant. Today. I so believe in creating a circle of accountability. When you tell others your dream, ask them to remind you of what you’re focused on and ask them to support you. My life changed and my purpose quickly deepened when I formed my first trusted team. This circle can pour back into you and help you get where you’re going. And you can do the same for them. You’re going to need each other when you start setting deadlines and making decisions! As Proverbs 11:25 states, “He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.”

Finally… when the going gets hard, say to yourself what I say to myself:

This is where I am going, this is the legacy I’m building and these are the people I’m serving.”

I promise you… you’ll start to feel that divine sweet spot I’m talking about.

What are the excuses you use to postpone making decisions?

Who are some of the people around you who could be in your Circle of Accountability?

    [Godfidence TV] So You Think You Can Be A Thought Leader?

    [Godfidence TV] So You Think You Can Be A Thought Leader?

    “Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be censured.”
    –Titus 2:7

    Simply put, a thought leader is someone who has a message to share–and shares it in order to change, inspire or improve the world.

    Thought leaders also invest in their leadership, learning skills and tools to better deliver their message and master the business side of being a messenger.

    Thought leaders are focused on their purpose, their voice and their message. They’re too busy to compare or worry about what others are doing.

    Finally, thought leaders are bold enough to take on the leadership mantle and take on the discipline and training to put themselves in a position to be heard.

    But the one thing they’ve got to do is share that message!

    Can’t ignore that tug to bring your message to the world?

    Check out today’s episode of Godfidence TV.

    Share This Blog Post:

    For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

    Christ came so that would we have life and have it more abundantly. I bet you can quote that Scripture by heart, right? But there’s a big difference between saying it and seeing it… and an even bigger difference when you can be seizing it.

    For those of you who feel called into the marketplace to have more impact or influence—or called to do more for your family, financial abundance is a necessity. But so many people DON’T have it. They don’t have what they need.

    In my life, I take 5 foolproof steps that allow me to operate with a whole lot more abundance and fruitfulness and I want to share them with you today on today’s episode of Godfidence TV. I’ve never seen them fail.

    5 Tips to Upgrade Your Speaking Brand

    5 Tips to Upgrade Your Speaking Brand

    Share This Blog Post:

    You have a divine voice. When you tap into it and bring it into your brand, you will experience amazing amounts of growth. Your divine voice will help you attract more clients, more income and more visibility. Your divine voice will help you connect more powerfully and meaningfully as you bring your message to the masses.

    That’s because everything about Heaven is attractive and is magnetic.

    But even the most inspired and inspiring speakers, authors and entrepreneurs need a little structure.  When you mix your divine voice with a few smart strategies, you will both PROPHET… and PROFIT.

    Here are my 5 Tips to
    Upgrade your Speaker
    Brand

    Tip #1. Be clear. Your audience must understand your message right away. This isn’t always easy for us entrepreneurs whose brains usually have a million ideas running. We are so close to our passion that it can be hard to be objective. What’s clear to us because we know it so well in our own hearts, may come across muddled and cloudy. It’s got to be very easy for people to understand you, who you are and what you do. Remember, a confused mind does nothing.

    Tip #2. Be concise. When we hear a speaker, 93% of what we take in is visual and vocal and only 7% is verbal. People actually remember very little of what you say, so every word you say must be important. I’m a lawyer, and come from a background of hourly billing and a philosophy of “explain, explain, explain,” so I had to learn that my audience wouldn’t remember most (93%!) of that. Keep the focus on your audience, not on yourself, as you stay on point: What are they going to get from you? What benefits do you bring them? What’s the value you offer?

    Tip #3. Be compelling. Now, what makes your speaker brand most compelling is YOU. Your story—your struggles and success. The transformation you’ve had and how that allow you to be able to help people. Why you are passionate about your topic. When your story and message are compelling, you not only create awareness, you create a movement—and word about you will spread. Build fire and energy this way, and people will want to stick with you.

    Tip #4. Be convincing. Do you believe what you say? Are you taking a powerful stand in what you believe? Leave an impression. Share powerful and real stories. Ask questions to get your audience thinking. Make sure your teaching points are organized as well as inspiring. And that your stories have a point. Remember, if you aren’t moved by your message, no one else will be, either.

    Tip #5. Be correct. I’m not talking about saying the right thing, but about positioning your message before the right target audience. Your speaking brand is “correct” when you attract your ideal audience by knowing what they want… and then you give them what they need. Make sure you know your audience and ideal client very well, so you can get your skin in the right game.

    Use these strategies to increase your visibility as you share your divine voice, your unique gift from above. God gave you your voice, your story, and your experiences by no mistake. These were pre-deposited into your being for a reason, and I believe for such a time as this.
