For years, I knew that I was called, but I wasn’t sure what I was called to and I had no idea what my purpose was. There was, however, one thing I did know: I didn’t want to waste my life pursuing the world’s expectations and standards for me. I knew I wanted to live a life aligned with God’s purpose and plan for me. So right after college graduation, I entered into a period of fasting and prayer, where I asked the Lord to reveal my purpose to me.
Through that period of fasting, prayer, and obedience, He revealed to me my purpose: to inspire and motivate women to live purpose-driven lives and my calling as a Life Coach. That revelation me to quit my master’s program a semester shy of finishing to pursue coaching full-time. Since then, I have been inspiring and coaching hundreds of women to uncover their purpose and design a life that they and God love, just as I am designing mine.
That purpose can be discovered and live out now. You don’t have to put it off until later. You can choose to live a purposeful, successful, and fulfilling life right now.
That success is more about stewardship that accumulating all the things. I’m after eternal rewards and recognition.
That you can curate a successful career that highlights your design, infuses your passion, utilizes your preparation, and spurs you on in your calling.
That it is possible to live a fun, amazing, life that is in alignment with God plan and also simultaneously fulfills your greatest desires.
That life is well spent when it is lived fully in submission and surrender to God’s plan and purposes.
