    Grow Baby Grow!

    Grow Baby Grow!

    Globally, we've drastically shifted and maybe you feel like what's the point of creating, dreaming, or doing ANYTHING except surviving. I have felt this, but it would be a waste of our life to simply just survive. God's Word encourages us to grow in all that we do for His glory! 

    In season 2, we've talked about the shifts in culture, religion, politics, and the like. In our second episode, we discussed that the goal is to remove distraction and be focused on the task at hand (work, school, your marriage, your kids, church, etc.). In this episode, we will discuss how in moments of tension is when we should grow...THE MOST! Hope you're encouraged to Grow, Baby Grow!

    Shift Change to Servant Leadership

    Shift Change to Servant Leadership

    As I wrap up season one of The Shift Changer Podcast, I sat down with my friend, Mike Rosas to talk about a topic we are both passionate about: Servant Leadership. Mike is the Houston Rockets Chaplain, business owner to several companies, co-founder with his beautiful wife, Lidiette, an orphanage in Soacha, Colombia called Love Bought International, and a father to 3 adorable children. Mike lives servant leadership in an extraordinary way fueled by the grace of God. I pray this episode blesses you and encourages you to live a life in service to others for the glory of God!

    This episodes Sticky Note Quote is: "Christianity enhanced the notion of political and social accountability by providing a new model: that of servant leadership. In ancient Greece and Rome no one would have dreamed of considering political leaders anyone's servants. The job of the leader is to lead. But Christ invented the notion that the way to lead is by serving the needs of others, especially those who are the most needy." Dinesh D'Souza

    Shift Change to Overcome Postpartum Depression to Joy Unspeakable in Jesus

    Shift Change to Overcome Postpartum Depression to Joy Unspeakable in Jesus

    Disclaimer: This was recorded in September 2020, and I thought I lost the recording. But my editor found it and so here it is. This one is of sensitive nature. If you are experiencing postpartum depression call: 1-800-944-4773 (4PPD).

    I sit down and talk with my lovely friend, Stephanie Jones. Stephanie is in an amazing wife, mama, newly fur mama, loves to capture beautiful family moments through photography among many other things. I barely knew Stephanie when I called her in 2017, but she mentioned in one of our photo sessions that she had experienced postpartum depression. In the middle of an extremely emotional moment where I felt I was spiraling, I called her. She stayed on the phone with me letting me talk it out, cry it out, and prayed for me. She then encouraged me to find a counselor. She would text me to check on me and send me encouraging scripture verses. Through that experience we became friends.

    This episodes Sticky Note Quote is Philippians 4:6: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”

    Stephanie leaves us with these words of wisdom: Change is necessary for growth. Shift your mindset and embrace change…especially in motherhood. Ask for help and reach out for help. Mamas, you are not alone.

    Connect with Stephanie on Instagram here and book a photo session with Stephanie here.

    I took a break to work on my business, Paloma Blanca with the amazing, Ashley Williams. She's in episode: 16. Now, I'm ready to get back at it! Let's begin 2021, with my dear and beautiful friend, Leslie Gonzales. When Leslie's not wearing multiple hats and crushing her day job, she's looking for ways to lavish the love of Jesus on women and connect with them through community gatherings. She even started an organization, Fearless Project and every month, she does just that! The mission of Fearless Project is to encourage and empower women to live life fearlessly for Jesus. We sat down and spoke about her unique ability to connect with women and where it all started. You'll hear through Leslie's story how the courage to be vulnerable unlocks the door to someone’s heart and transparency opens the door to connection with them. The women of Fearless Project is the proof! I know because I've been a part of Fearless Project and have seen first hand. Leslie is an incredible leader and is inspiring women to live fearlessly. She will also be speaking at Revive Her Conference coming this April 17th, 2021. We'd love for you to join us in person or online! Register here.
    This episodes STICKY NOTE QUOTE IS: "If God gets you to it; He'll get you through it." And Philippians 4:19, "And my God will meet all your needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus."
