    Reclaim Your Voice through Prayer with Chrystal Evans Hurst

    Chrystal Evans Hurst is one of my favorite podcaster-speaker-authors. She is anointed to encourage and equip others to live God's best for their lives... all while engaging and being present in the small important moments that matter in the everyday. 

    Chrystal Hurst is here to talk about how a 28 day commitment can help us make prayer a habit in our daily lives. In this episode she recommends that in the midst of many voices telling us how to respond to the world’s problems, we seek God in prayer for wisdom and clarity for how we can be most effective. We end the episode with her answering several listener questions about prayer.
    This episode is for you if you’ve ever wondered…
    the role and purpose of prayer as we take action on the vision in our heart how to cultivate your relationship with God through prayer how to wrestle with disappointment through prayer how to make prayer ongoing conversation between you and God ***

    Reclaim Your Voice: Our Teens & The Political Process with Jessica Davis

    Reclaim Your Voice: Our Teens & The Political Process with Jessica Davis

    In the month of June we are reclaiming our voices. For this week’s #WorkYourPlan Wednesday I’m taking a step towards one of my action items - to be more informed about local government.

    Our guest this week is Jessica Davis. Jessica is an 8th grade Civics teacher in Phoenix, AZ who's been teaching middle school for almost 8 years. Her degrees are in American History with a minor in religious studies and a masters in Secondary Education. Jessica loves teaching and sees her classroom as her mission field.
    We invited Jessica to help us talk with our teens (and pre-teens) about how we make the political process relevant to our teens. In this candid conversation we will discuss how to engage our kids in the process, how to help them validate fact from fiction on social media and she'll give us a mini lesson on our basic rights as US citizens at the federal and local levels.

    Reclaiming Your Voice After Trauma with Sharli Berry

    Reclaiming Your Voice After Trauma with Sharli Berry

    For the month of June, in response to our collective grief and outrage over racist acts continuing in our country, on my platforms I'm centering our conversations around reclaiming our voice.

    This week’s #WorkYourPlan conversation with Sharli Berry, a licensed therapist and the owner of Destiny's Door Counseling, about reclaiming your voice after trauma is critical to this conversation.
    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's quote "protest is the language of the unheard" is quoted frequently right now. We're going to dig into what that means from a mental health perspective. Specifically, we will be talking about how we reclaim our voice after different forms of trauma - childhood abuse and neglect, domestic violence, as well as, the trauma of systemic racism.
    In this episode we discuss...
    What is trauma? What role does our faith play to help us deal with trauma? What role does therapy play? How traumas get triggered How systemic racism triggers us How we reclaim our voice after trauma ***

    Reclaiming Your Voice for Advocacy with Khalilah Elliott

    Reclaiming Your Voice for Advocacy with Khalilah Elliott

    Courage always comes with a cost.
    For the month of June we’re exploring what courage costs all of us and how courage helps us reclaim our voice for our God-given assignment.
    One of the things I pray is reclaimed from our anger and outrage around history continuing to repeat itself is our heart for advocacy.

    I was joined by my sister, Khalilah Elliott, a multicultural marketing and communications expert, to talk about how we reclaim our voice for advocacy. 
    Advocacy comes in many forms and that's what Khalilah and I will be talking about.
    In this episode we discuss...
    ▪️Why advocacy matters
    ▪️Why our silence and inaction is detrimental to us all
    ▪️How to think critically about issues of social justice
    ▪️How to address our own anger and resentment in a way that’s not counterproductive
    ▪️Methods for how we “stop” the madness
    No more being silent about the things that matter most to us because we fear what others think.

    "If people are ready to leave you, because you find your voice and you're ready to speak up for yourself, let them go!" - Khalilah Elliott
    "If you're an advocate, your role, even when it is uncomfortable is to acknowledge when something is problematic for the people you claim you advocate for. It doesn't stop when it stops being a topic of discussion." - Khalilah Elliott
