I have always felt I was born to lead a wild rebellion. As a child I wasn’t quite sure what that looked like so I did everything anyone told me not to do. As an adult that has turned into fuel to ignite my fire of my pursuit towards my purpose. When I hear the words she can’t do that; I hear, “She is so going to do that”. Rebellion has lived in me since birth but it wasn’t until recently I understood what that meant. Today my rebellion is love. In a world that is so consumed in division, I have become so consumed in loving people. I have found a rebellion in empowering women when the world tells me I should tear them apart. Don’t misunderstand me though; I’ve been a mean girl most of my life. God looked at the saints and was like WATCH THIS when He transformed me.
I have overcome addiction, homelessness, abuse, and trafficking. I am a believer, a wife, a boy mom and a business owner. I’m a tattoo collecting, sometimes bad word slipping (sorry babe), unicorn hair rocking warrior with conservative views. I’m a wild spirit and my humor is questionable.
So tonight begins a journey into the reality of being a woman in today’s society. A journey into talking about farts with my wild things. A dive into what empowering women looks like to me. A guide to encouragement for my entrepreneurial sisters. A story of how I have overcome demons. A testimony of why God is so rad. The bad days with anxiety and depression. The joyful tears of marriage. If you’re here to read about a perfect life or how to have a perfect life, you’re in the wrong place. Let’s take this journey together. A journey into the rebellion.
