Walking on Water with Confidence
Some people will stay in the boat while others will venture on foot in the sea, walking on water, which one are you?
Identifying, Understanding and Overcoming Self-Limiting Beliefs
Did you know you were made to do great things? No, really, it’s true! It is why we love watching movies about adventure. Deep down we want that to be part of our story. Whether it’s opening a local coffee shop, traveling the world as a podcaster, planting a church or serving a ministry or cause in a developing country, there are extraordinary feats that we want to accomplish. Now, whether we actually try to accomplish them, that is a different matter altogether. What stops us from walking on water with confidence? Think of something that you have always wanted to do, now think of all the reasons you haven’t done it yet. Those reasons are often called Self-Limiting Beliefs. By Identifying, Understanding and Overcoming Self-Limiting Beliefs it makes what we thought to be impossible, possible.
On another note, let’s get together! I want to hear what you think. It’s time to have a workshop. Virtual, Hybrid and in person. The Dream Big Again—Then Activate Seminar! How many courses, books, conferences have you attended and loved then found a few months later you felt like you hadn’t made the progress you hoped for? My prayer is to crack that code. To actually host events, programs, etc. that have measurable metrics of success and provide roadmaps with short-term wins. Events customized to your needs. I believe it’s possible!

Resurrection Sunday AKA Easter Sunday
What is Resurrection Sunday? It has been quite some time since we have been able to sit down for church service in the way I had come to know in my lifetime. For many of us, things look a lot different these days. I remember taking a stroll in downtown Nashville to visit a lovely Methodist church built over 100 years ago and the door were locked! I know I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I imagined myself desperately banging on the doors yelling “sanctuary!” waiting for someone from the inside to bring me in from the proverbial cold. Yes. that is an exaggeration, but where can the cold, hungry and desperate go when the church doors are closed? Back in the day, it was during the tragic personal and world circumstances that often drove people to visit their local church.
This Easter or Resurrection Sunday morning I awoke wondering what we were to do. I always love a good Sunday church service and our littles were also interested in attending church for Easter, although these days for them it means play time. As I prayer walked my room this particular moment, I felt God building something inside of me, I was supposed to do another podcast today! And He, God that is, had it all planned out. The name was going to be "Resurrection Sunday". Even a guest audio production specialist was willing to get it produced and ready for posting on the very same day, which is both a holiday and on the weekend. That my sweet friends is a miracle! And believe you me, EVERYTHING tried to get in the way! If I was running against the clock to deliver this podcast to the finish line, I had to jump over hungry dogs, children, dodge arrows, and get fancy with bobbing and weaving, ducking and dodging, as the distractions were launched. But here it is! Fresh out of the kitchen!
My very first Sunday sermon teaching… unabridged, unscripted, completely unexpected, and a true opt out…
*Update* I just found out my new favorite show, The Chosen released it's first episode of season 2 on Easter Sunday and they have a miraculous testimony and the show is amazing. It's free using a "Pay it Forward" approach. I feel a new revival or Great Awakening coming on...
Produced by: Sterling Skye Sound - A Special thanks to this amazing company being part of this miracle!

When I Grow Up
When I Grow Up…
Do you remember getting this question in childhood as well as answering the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up? Back in the days of being told that “you can do whatever you put your mind to” and if you can dream it you can do it”, we found ourselves dreaming of being astronauts, rocket scientists, firepersons, zookeepers, Michael Jordan, time travelers and working at the waffle house. (Btw, that last one was a real dream of a little one who loved eating there)
Why should that stop once we are adults? Can we not still do what we dream or dare to think big? It would seem that there is an unspoken expectation that happens in adulthood. What once was “reach for the stars”, became “be realistic” or “don’t aim too high”.
What in the world is that!!!!
If we really think about it, we will see how contradictory this can be and how can we inspire the coming generations if we lose hope of doing what we love once we become adults?
So let’s have some fun….
Hello you! What do you want to be when you grow up? Dust off those old goals, dreams and plans and take another more serious look. You will be surprised at what is possible. If we have self-driving cars and a guest room in space, courtesy of the ISS, then it is definitely possible to do what you love during your lifetime. When the Wright brothers said they wanted to find a way for man to fly, I mean I wasn’t there or anything, but I imagine they were probably laughed out of whatever room they were in. Look at us now! Flying around the world is commonplace and people can even go into space!
So what amazing thing excites you? This episode explores some of the ways you can take a dream, or idea, find motivation, create a roadmap, get support and begin the journey towards your destination.

Heartwarming, hilarious and soooo real hahaha
This podcast so boldly goes where even the more established podcasts fear to go. Seriously my heart leapt when I heard you talk about Jesus. Yes girl!! I have never heard such a balance as this: love and ON POINT life commentary, humor that is pure and clean, inspired thoughts and prayer, wonderful laughter, and words that speak to the heart and soul. Please keep doing what you are doing, I better see you on Oprah someday Kenieshiear
Helpful, Enjoyable, Inspiring
Looking forward to more encouraging and uplifting podcasts as we are taken through the different seasons in our life!
Loving! I’m hooked.
As a person who has chose to “op-out” in so many non traditional things of life, I appreciate so much someone who shares this passion with the world. It is very hard today to have people around you with the understanding of why you choose to live the way you do! Love your Christmas story! We do not have traditional Christmas either... we wake up earlier than any other day and go serve the homeless community every Christmas! Let’s get out of the norm and change your view you won’t regret it when you opt out ! Happy launch and I can’t wait to hear more to come. Thanks House of Czetty 😁
