Your Gifts Are Not Free | How to Start Using Your Gifts for Employment

Do you have a gift or talent you give away for free, but dream you could be making a living from it?  Have you talked yourself out of that dream and become scared to turn that dream to a reality? By the end of this post you’ll know why you should stop giving your gifts and talents for free. Plus I tell you how your gifts can be used for your employment.
Your Gifts Are Not FreeHey y’all! It’s been a minute since I’ve written a post primarily because I have been enjoying connecting with y’all more intimately in our group. The live chats, Bible studies, accountability and community seems to have been the key to helping you get over some of your biggest struggles. It’s been amazing seeing the growth and hearing the testimonies of the members.

Next month the new group kicks off, so if you haven’t registered make sure to do that here today.

This morning I taught a live class on how your gifts are connected to your income. A lot of people will try and get you to believe if you are a Christian and have a gift that it should be given away for free. That myth has some of you giving away for free, the very talent God gave you for your employment. People have you believing it is un-Christian to charge for something you are good at especially if it involves helping them grow in their walk with Christ.

In today’s video, I’m not only going to encourage you to stop doing that, I’m also going to show you in scripture where charging for your service is very much in line with what God has called us to do.


Do you have a gift for decor that you freely give to people you know, but deep down inside you’d love to make a business out of it?

Are you great a baking and everyone loved your cakes until you started talking about creating a business and selling them?

Does everyone come to you for advice on something unique, but when you began talking about charging for one-on-one mentorship, the stopped needing your advice?

Today I’m going to tell you how to get past your doubts about using your gifts and talents to make a living.

What to do when God won’t make you stop yelling at your family

What to do when God won't make you stop yelling at your familyYelling as a communication style is a very real thing. The thing about yelling is that as Christ followers we don’t typically go around broadcasting to people that we lose it with our families.

That behavior is kept under wraps. We put on our best voices in public, but become totally different people at home. That should not be so. Yelling as a form of communication was one of the biggest battles I ever had to fight. I broke the curse off of my life and will help you do the same.

If y’all are like me, you’ve prayed and maybe even fasted trying to rid your self of this terrible habit but are perplexed as to why it won’t stop. I know the struggle because I’ve been where you are. I’ve said hurtful words to not just my husband, but my kids too. It got to the point where I was ridden with guilt and refused to go on being a wife and mom who yelled. I took some drastic but practical steps which I’ll be sharing with y’all this month here on my blog, my Facebook page and You Tube channel. Here’s one of the videos that will encourage and empower you in your fight.

Watch today’s video to learn what to do when God won’t make you stop yelling at your family.

Why you need to fight to find Gods Light

Fight to Find God's Light

We have a true enemy and a true Savior. One’s sole purpose is to ensure we remain in uttter darkness while the other made the ultimate sacrifice for us the live in the light of God.

In this lifetime we will be given the opportunity to decide where we want to dwell. I’ve personally lived both and have made an intentional decision to live in and fight to find Gods light everyday. Finding and living in God’s light isn’t a one time decision.

It’s an ‘every morning when I wake up decision’. It’s a ‘moment by moment’ and ‘situation by situation’ decision. Satan wants us to choose the darkness (or sinful decsions), while God wants us to choose the light or (holy decisions).

Things To Pray Over | Prayer Journal

Things To Pray Over | Prayer Journal

God really has had me in my feelings for a few months now. My spirit has been so unsettled about so many things, but I know this season is refining me into the women God wants me to be for what He has prepared for me.


He’s taking me through some situations that are tough, but good for me and prayer has been my saving grace. Knowing I can seek Him for strength to make it through or wisdom to know what to do gives me so much comfort.

10 Secrets To Being a Content Woman

10 Secrets for Being a Content Woman

I don’t sit here writing this list to mislead you into believing I’m always content. We all face struggles and have to decide how we are to handle them. We all get frustrated and suffer from disappointments in life, and relationships. This list is a gentle reminder for us to set a watch over our thoughts and feelings. It’s a reminder of how we can go about dealing with life’s challenges and not allowing them to steal our joy.

10 Secrets To Being a Content Woman

1. Don’t complain to others or about things. Complaining is a slippery slope that opens the door for Satan. Once you begin grumbling about things, next you’ll be grumbling about the Giver of all things. Use your energy to seek out the joy in all things. Take your concerns to God because He is the only one with the power to help you.

2. Don’t look at what other people have or what they are able to do and wish to be in their shoes. Coveting is a parasite that sucks the joy out of you. Coveting also says to God that you don’t think He knows what’s best for you. Coveting steals the joy you would be experiencing if you’d thank God for what you do have.

3. Always find something to be thankful for. Go as far as keeping a journal of things you are thankful for. Take a few minutes one or several times each day to add to your list. Reread your entries whenever your feel discontentment.

4. Always look for the good in your current situation. Don’t dwell on what could have been. Ask God to show you the lesson and the purpose in your current circumstances.

5. Stay in the present by focusing on what’s happening in your life today. Let God take care of your tomorrow.

6. Figure out what your purpose is and start operating in it. When we do what we were created to do we are able to perform at our fullest potential which results in the greatest return on our investment of time.

7. Learn the control your thoughts because what you think directly affects what you do.

8. Forgive people who have wronged you. When we hold grudges it will be hard to be content and at peace within ourselves. Forgiving is not for the benefit of the offender, it for the benefit of the offended. Forgive so that you can move on.

9. Accept things you can’t change. Dwelling on the shoulda, coulda, and woulda’s will keep you unhappy and living in the past. Forgive yourself or others for past choices. If the thing you can’t change is a present situation, ask God for peace and accept His will.

10. Have hope in God. He has a Biblical love letter full of glorious promises written just for you. Read His word daily to remind yourself of all the reasons why you should be content.

Ladies, we all struggle with letting situations steal our joy. What practices do you put in place to keep that from happening too often?
