In this episode I'm speaking with Christian Counselor and Speaker Kobe Campbell about trauma.  What you are listening to is a portion of a conversation we recently had live in front of an audience.  Here is what you'll hear in the session: What is trauma? How is it received? How do you know if you experienced it? What are the ways our relationships with our parents play out in our friendships and intimate partnerships?

It's easy to forget who you are, or who you are being led to be, when you feel stuck in a place of being overwhelmed and depleted.  That's how I've been feeling for about a week or so.  Today I decided to make a list (with the help of the alphabet) of who I am in God based on his promises for my life as well as the purpose he has for me.  I hope that you find this list helpful and that it encourages you to hit the pause button this week and sit down with your pen and journal to make your own. Feeling alone in your journey of a life well lived?  Need more faith based support?  In need of a sense of belonging and community with other Black women?  Join Brown Girl Society!

Hey, sis! I've gotten questions on occasion asking "How do I start loving myself or showing up for myself?"  In this episode I'm going to give you seven ways that we show up for others, which not coincidentally are ways that God shows his love for us.  These simple but effective principles are powerful ways to also commit to loving ourselves.
Sis, if you are working at a job that no longer serves you, hear me when I say you are not stuck.  If you are afraid to set up healthy boundaries in the workplace, you are not out of luck.  If you have never negotiated to get what you want and need when looking for a new position it's not too late. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of speaking with lawyer and coach Toya Gavin of Legally Bold about all of the above (and more!!) during a Brown Girl Self-Care LIVE fireside chat.  This conversation was so timely I wanted to bring some of the nuggets she dropped here to the podcast.   You can connect with Toya on Instagram right here! ps - Toya will be doing a workshop in Brown Girl Society on March 17th on how to stay in alignment with the goals and vision you are claiming in 2021.  You don't want to miss this, girl!!

Hey, hey!  A few weeks ago I hosted a Brown Girl Self-Care LIVE session on Zoom along with my guest, Katara McCarty.  Katara is the creator of the Exhale App, a self-care resource for BIWOC.  During the session Katara gave the community super helpful info about how stress interrupts our nervous system as well as 5 (FREE) ways we can intentionally pause and practice self-care. You can find the Exhale App here! And follow Katara here on IG! Also, make sure you have registered for the "Aligned with His Vision" Board Party that happens on January 30th, 2021!
Accepting kindness in the form of help, compliments and gifts is not only a celebration of you it's also an act of resistance. I recently experienced a situation where I declined someone pouring into me and it really made me sit down for a while and reflect on why I reacted the way I did.  In this episode I'm giving you three thoughts on how to shift your perspective if you have a challenge receiving kindness.
2020 was about survival for me.  I quit my "good paying job" September 27, 2019 and, instead of finding a new job, Covid hit in January or February 2020. I feel like now I am being called to boldy reinvent myself but in order for me to do that, I've got to take better control of my morning and also how I decide to show up in life. In this episode I'm sharing a few ways I'll be working this year to show up more confidently as well as be more responsible and forgiving.  
Happy New Year!!  During a period of reflection at the end of last year I came to the conclusion that I wanted to be super intentional about doing what I could to help bring a different kind of energy and seriousness to 2021.  I'm believing and claiming that this year will be amazing and pivotal for my life and business and I want that for you too. With that, in this episode I'm sharing 4 shifts I'm using to help make this year different.  Make sure you have a pen and notebook handy.

Solo episode today!  I recently experienced a woman walking completely and boldly in her vision and it was a sight to see.  I've been telling myself for the last few months that I am ONLY walking in Faith and there is ZERO room for disbelief.  Seeing this Queen do exactly that was an excellent reminder for me to keep building my table even if no one else is in the room to sit at it (yet).   Have you heard about the Collective Day of Rest for Black Women event?  Make sure you are on the newsletter to get more info by clicking right here!

"National Be A Millionaire Day" was a few days ago and it got me to thinking about what being a millionaire would mean as well as the fact that cash might be king but there are other ways we can be wealthy right now.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month and so I wanted to support you by sharing ways that I've been able to honor and be mindful of my mental health.   If you found this episode helpful please be sure to like, comment and share with your sistrens!
Today I am speaking with physician and success strategist Dr. Omolara Uwemedimo, creator of Melanin, Medicine & Motherhood.  In this juicy episode we discuss what Faith means to her, how she uses her voice as an introvert, the major occurrence that happened in her life that caused her to slow down and also some book resources that helped shape her life.
If you've gained a few pounds in the last year or two, hear me when I say you aren't alone.  Lockdown, stress and working from home got me caught up in a rut which found me not moving my body as much as I used to.  To counter the weight gain and get back on track I've started doing two simple activities (walking + intermittent fasting) that will tone my body, increase my energy and keep my mind clear.
I've been slowly simmering on borderline rage for the last few weeks off and on.  In today's episode I'm sharing MY thoughts and feelings regarding the guilty verdict Derek Chauvin received and why I don't feel like celebrating.  I get a little emotional in the episode so if that is triggering please be gentle with yourself and skip this episode.

Love the rubber band idea! I have a wrist band I wear every day that reads LOVE > FEAR and I'm going to try this process with that. Praying for you, girl! ❤

I love that you addressed this. I, too, struggle with the idea of "manifestation" and even the popularity of "affirmations." I decided to write out affirmations for myself that are rooted in faith and love how I feel empowered reading them...empowered by the strength of Christ in me.
