How to Overcome Anxiety


Hi sis! I did a live Instagram post this past Tuesday that talked about How to Identify the weapons, so they won't prosper that led to a Q&A session of someone dealing with anxiety. God led me to tell one of the listeners a strategy he gave me after I had my baby boy. Did you know google has 265 million searches on this top. All that tells me is that we have some work to do.

I remember being so anxious and feeling jittery that I couldn't control myself. I just had my baby boy, just got out of the hospital from chronic pneumonia, and my husband told me he wanted a divorce. My stress levels were so high for about 6 months until I began healing.

Anxiety came from the multiple emotions from breastfeeding, I didn't feel safe in my own home, and I didn't know what was going to happen next in my life. But God! Thank you for your peace, grace, and mercy.

During that time, I asked God to heal me from this cup because I knew that this wasn't the life and mentality he wanted me to live. So he gave me this small strategy that made a huge impact in my life. See below.

1. He told me to take the negative word I was feeling and look up the antonyms for it. After I saw the antonyms he told me to take the opposite of what that word means and apply scriptures that can back them up.

Example: If you are feeling like you are dealing with anxiety. Look up the antonym which is: Belief, blessing, calm, calmness, confidence, ease, faith, happiness, joy, peace, trust, peacefulness, assurance, and tranquility.


2. Read those scriptures daily until something changes and even after

3. Meditate on the scriptures

4. Pray that God will heal you from that negative feelings.

When I tell you that was everything to me. To this day from 2019, I am totally healed from fear, anxiety, depression, and suicide. I thank God for his healing.

Final advice:
  • Make sure you stay in your word and learn God for yourself.
  • Find a church home.
  • Find a therapist near you to help with these emotions.

How to Not Get Overwhelmed by the New Year


Happy New Year sis!

Last week I logged into social media and I immediately got overwhelmed by the number of people telling me how to run my year. That instantly disturbed me. On Thursday, I was instructed by the Holy Spirit to speak about How to not get overwhelmed by the new year to help you. You can watch it here.

With this ever-changing system, social media can be a lot. Sis, do not get overwhelmed about how someone else is moving. It's their journey. It's nothing wrong with taking notes but do just that and test the spirit of everyone you encounter. 1 John 4:1 states to, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

You have no idea what people are dabbling in and who their true source is. Anything that is rooted back to a person is out of selfishness and is a lie from the pit of hell. If they are not leading you to God, test it. What are the fruit they are producing.

Remember most people who are all excited about the new year, fold in mid-February. So take these steps and remember God got you, that you have no worries. 

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-8

So why not take this time and build whatever strategy God has for you for your new year. 

Top 3 Steps to Overcome


1. Start with God. 


Matthew 6:33 talks about seeking first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. 

For me, when I anchor myself with God, his peace always surpasses the noise the world is projecting. I noticed in my live I didn't give you the tools to know how to seek him. What does that look like? Seeking God starts with practice. It's a practice that I started in October and has been a blessing to my life. It alleviates error, wrongdoing, and His timing. If you are looking for a great resource. Check out the practice of the presence of God here.

All you have to do is take a moment to calm your spirit and set with God. God showed me that a lot of times it's not about receiving insight or instructions. Seeking Him and setting in His presence can sometimes be about calming your spirit back to Christ, where the words says our eyes should be. This leads me to the second note.


2. Take a social media break


If your mind gets cloudy and overwhelmed quickly, take a social media break for a few days. And don't just get off to say you got off, gear back to the #1 and seek God on how to utilize these platforms. When you come back, clean up your social media. Go through your friend list, and ask God who needs to be removed and do a thorough cleaning. 

If you feel you will miss something from another person's life, that is rooted in something much deeper and I would ask that you check your spirit as to why it's important for you to keep with another person's life. A lot of these stars you follow have a lot of problems and bring them to the media which is transferring straight to you. Yep, I said it. Don't praise others because remember why you are here in the first place. Go back to the promises God has instilled in you and focus on the purpose God has for your life. Don't do what everybody is telling you to do. 

Ask God:

  • What is He speaking to you about? 
  • What are some goals that He want you to focus on in your life?

This world is getting worse and we have to protect our minds and eye from the enemy because he is planting seeds in your mind. Remember he is here for only three things and that's to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. John 10:10.

3. Take it Easy. 


I cannot stretch this enough. One thing God spoke to me about is that it is OK to give yourself grace and relax. I think as a believer because it can feel like you are behind on the knowledge. It's like you're in a race to catch up. For me, waking up from a 20 year dead space can make you feel behind but oh no honey, God will restore everything back to you as stated in Joel 2:25.

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

All we have to do is follow his lead, not our own.

In your journey, I pray a spirit of execution over you that you become not just a hearer of the word but a doer. I speak a doer spirit over you that you will allow God to order your steps into this new year. 

I hope this blog has blessed you, happy new year to you and I want to invite you to my first Live MasterClass How to Redefine your Image in God on February 12th at 10:30 am. 


Join me live for a moment of redefining who God says you are, on understanding your image, confidence to keep pushing on the things God has instilled in you.

How to Create a Faith Board


How to Create a Faith Vision Board

Hi sis! God has instilled this in my heart to share with you on how to create a faith board. I know when I hear board. The first thing that comes to mind is a vision board. I don't know about anybody else but for me by the end of the year I could never find the board created the previous year before. I think this is because a lot of vision boards we create, were created based on the vision we set for ourselves verses what God has instilled in us.

A Faith Board is a board based on the things God has instilled in us. How do you create one? Let me show you how but before I can show you how. Let's talk about faith.

What is faith?

If you believe in God, you already have faith. Faith is #1 belief in God. In Greek faith is confidence and trust. It is the acknowledgement of the mind to the statement or proposition of another, on the grounds of the truth of what God utters.

Faith and Faith steps are directly connected. It's the persuasion of His will. God's warranty, certifying that the revelation he birthed will come to pass (His way). You heard correctly, his way.

I am going to let this sink in for a minute and yes please reread that.

When I think of faith, I think of 2 scriptures.

Hebrews 11:1 

Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and the assurance about what we do not see.

  • What is assurance?- is title deed, confirmation.
  • Things hoped for (divinely guaranteed)

James 2:26

Faith without works is dead.

  • I encourage you to read the entire 14-26

What is the works? It's the obedience which is expressed by faith. Faith is doing what God tells you to do, even when you don't understand it.

So I am taking it a step forward to write it down, and make it plain and creating a board based on the things God has shared with me about my new year instead of the things I envisioned for myself. I don't know about anybody else but I am tired of doing things my way, it just doesn't work. So let's get into it.


  • Faith- you have to have faith to believe that what God has spoken to you can happen for you.
  • A poster board- my suggestion is an 11 x 14 mini size.


  • Magazines- if you don’t have any magazines, I suggest asking family/friends or checking out your local dollar tree for magazines for $1.
  • A open positive mind- this will only work if your faith is activated mentally.
  • Tape and glue
  • Scissors
  • 11x13 frame(optional)

Watch this video to see how to create your very own Faith Board.

3 Things You Can Declutter Right Now


Happy New Year! So you’ve been trying to figure out what are some ways to get this year started for a while now. 

You may see others online, showing how they've planned and organized their lives this new year. And it seems like everyone makes it look so easy. 

But for some reason, planning and organizing keep eluding you. Every time you get close to clearing the clutter out of your life, something happens and you end up back where you started and with even more clutter than you started with.

Not this time. 

Because this time you’re going to be armed with the same tips, tricks, and secrets you see others are doing to make their lives easier to become successful in whatever it is you are trying to achieve. 

This year I wanted to start with a clear mind, a clean slate, and a clean home. Decluttering is a great place to start when you need fresh ideas, a new start, and a clear mind. And I don't know about you but I can't think straight when my home is not in order and things are all over the place virtually and physically.

Give these simple tips a try and see if they work for you too… 

Tip 1: Declutter your email

There are many ways you can declutter your emails but these are a few that have helped me in the past 2 weeks.


  • is the easiest way to manage your inbox. Unsubscribe from unwanted email subscriptions, discover new ones, and organize them all in one place.

Create folders in your Inbox

  • Creating a folder for emails I will return too is one of my top ways to declutter your email. I put these emails in the folder and put some time on my calendar during the week to read through them.

Never stay subscribed to an email if you know you're not going to read them.

 WARNING: Keeping emails you never open adds to the clutter and does not decrease it. We tend to keep subscriptions based on coupons, discounts, or sometimes we feel we are missing something.

NEWS FLASH: you have everything you need. 

Erasing these emails can help you eliminate unnecessary purchases, which is buying psychology, which will ultimately help your budget. This will clear your emails of so much junk, and also minimize the internet's algorithm to stop studying your shopping habits.

  • Go to the top search in your email browser, put in a name of a consistent company you see in your inbox, erase all the emails if you aren't going to read them, and take the companies latest email and unsubscribe. 

Tip 2: Declutter your social media 

This is a quarterly task I complete about every 3 months. There are so many voices, so many opinions, and so many “facts” that a lot of times, social media can be really noisy. 

I don’t follow everybody that follows me. If a page doesn’t uplift me, encourage my faith, and help me with something. I will not follow them unless they are my family or friends.

If you went to high school with somebody and they didn't talk with you then and don't say too much to you now. Why are you following them? Now if you support them or their business and the relationship is mutual then that’s a different story but most of us follow a lot of unnecessary people just because.

I don’t like much noise so when my feed seems cloudy. I clean out my follower's list to minimize the busyness of social media.


Tip 3: Declutter your Closet

This will have to be my all-time favorite! Cleaning out my closet is so refreshing to me. I like to do these things to declutter.

Create a Toss, Sell, or Donate pile 

  • Sell items I don't wear on eBay 
  • Donate clothes to Goodwill or local church for outreach
  • Toss items that are torn, ripped, or super old

Organize your closet using containers, labels, and color coordination 

Hire a professional to help if this task becomes daunting.

Bonus Tip: Just Breath. This may seem like a lot but this becomes fun once you implement these steps in your life. I started doing this by 15 minutes a day for each tip and saw a huge leap in my creativity because my phone, my social media, and my closet were all clutter-free.

In sum: Decluttering is fairly simple when you apply the above 3 tips. So let me leave you with one last tip…
