Hey Beloved, in this episode, I'm sharing the reasons and the purpose of detours and how to know if God has led you into a detour or if your detour came about by your own doing.

A self-initiated detour happens when you avoid doing things God's way because you think you know a better way or a faster way.

But these kinds of detours will only delay you from reaching your destiny. However, when you're in a God-ordained detour it's because He knows you're not yet ready for what's on a faster path.

The detours He leads you down are to prepare you for the heavier weight of glory that you will carry when your spiritual strength has come to maturity.

Whether you caused your own detour or God led you into a detour, know that delays are not denials. Don't give up! God by His grace, He will lead you back to the path that leads to His purpose and plan for you if you commit your way to Him.

Hey Beloved, in this episode, I'm sharing more about the 28-Day Lifestyle Reset Challenge and how it will benefit you. 

In the story of Martha and Mary, the Bible says, Martha was distracted with much serving but Mary chose the good portion that could not be taken away, (see Luke 10: 38-42).

Martha was doing good things but Jesus said Mary had chosen the one thing that necessary, the good portion that had eternal value. 

This lifestyle reset will help you reprioritize your life around that which has eternal value by learning to choose what is good and beneficial for you in this season. 

Listen to the episode for a deeper dive into what a lifestyle reset can do for you!

Hey Beloved,

In this episode, I'm kicking off Vlogtober with an introduction to my upcoming book, by sharing some of the letters from my younger-self to the woman I've become. 

These letters were written about three years ago, at the intersection of midlife just before I turned forty-five. 

At that time I was stuck in an expired season, waiting for change to come. Then one day while sitting on my couch after my mother passed away I had an encounter with my younger self. 

In that moment, she became the mirror I saw my past, my present, and my future through. The voice of my younger self became the catalyst that led to taking the reins and bravely changing the course of my life. 

My hope in sharing my story is that you would have some conversations with your younger self that lead to brave change.
