Imma just trust Him and do what she says.

Has God ever Mr. Miyagi’d you? What I mean by using this Karate Kid reference is, has God ever told you to do something that made absolutely no sense, but then later it made all the sense in the world? He did that to me recently. I had just wrapped up the…

When I rest, God works.

Have you ever found yourself fighting rest like a toddler fights nap time? Everything in you is screaming “I’m tired!” but for whatever reason your little toddler mind can rationalize, you just have to keep going. That's how I spent half the day yesterday. My body and mind were fatigued and I barely had the energy to…

God is committed to providing for me.

But this week I just hadn’t gotten that word yet. I sat at my computer, Google doc open, ready to type. Even started typing some of what I was thinking it might be but I kept erasing it because I knew it wasn’t it. Then, I can’t even remember why now but, I “randomly”…

God got it.

You know how you can read the same scripture at different times in your life and get something different every time? That just happened to me when I ran across Jeremiah 17 this morning. Back in 2011 I was gearing up to…

God needs me to scale my business.

I was binge-listening to Season 3 of the Serial Podcast while driving to and from my hometown this past week. It chronicles the stories of several individuals going through the Cleveland justice system in an effort to provide a snapshot into what our justice system looks like as a whole in our nation -- spoiler alert: it doesn’t look good. Corruption, deep-seated racism, you name it. Not sure why I decided to listen to something so heavy on my way to kick it with my family 🤷🏾‍♀️, but I’m glad I did because…

I create more wealth than I consume.

The other day I was getting into the shower trying to figure out why I hadn’t booked my much-needed nail appointment yet. Looking at the state of my nails I clearly needed a major fill-in and I was also just feeling like I could use some self-care. Why hadn’t I booked yet? When I realized it was because…

I'm already sitting on the answer I've been praying for.

3 years ago when I was praying about what business to pursue next, God led me to take inventory of my talents and asked me what I’m the best at. When I did it, I couldn’t shake the fact that I’ve always been…

My business doesn't define me.

Found myself complaining to bae the other day about how I felt like I got nothing done all day. He then proceeded to ask me about my day and I shared all the stuff that happened -- how I only got part of my business work done for the day because I had to deal with a plumbing issue in the house, etc. After hearing all of it he was like…

God is grooming me for greatness

Been working on finishing a book I started reading like 8 years ago (The Blessing of the Lord by Kenneth Copeland if you’re curious), and came across a note I wrote down in the margin of the book back in 2011. It said…

I’m building God’s brand as I build my own.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending and sponsoring the Build Your Own Brand Retreat, which was nothing short of amazing. A few days before it kicked off, I got a surprise invitation to…

God will help me stay on track.

A couple weeks before I took my final leap into full-time entrepreneurship, I found myself thinking hard about how I’m going to need to develop a solid routine for myself with all the new free time I’ll have. I know better than to think…

God can save my finances just like He saved my soul.

This week’s scripture struck a chord in me. Primarily the part where God says: “Honor me by trusting in me in your day of trouble”. He didn’t just say honor me by…

There's nothing my God can't do.

It’s hard to believe but Big Idea Food is going to be one year old in a few weeks. As I reflect on the amazing year it’s been, I’m reminded of how I felt after all the work had been put in and I had finally put it out there into the world. As far as I know, this is the closest feeling to…

My God's pockets run deep.

The other night I was climbing into bed and caught myself thinking that I need to buckle down and get ready to be poor for a spell while I get used to not getting a paycheck every…

God will hold my hand as I leap.

Guess what I did today? Today I turned in my notice to my 9-5. I’m officially leaving.No emoji confetti or dancing salsa ladies. Just me putting on my big girl panties and…
