1. What does it mean to you to “Do It For The Kingdom?”
This phrase means to me that I’m living intentionally to glorify God in all that I do.
2. There’s this thought floating in the minds of many millennials that being a Christian is “boring” and “limiting.” What’s your “holy clapback” sis? Lol
BORRRRRING?! *Soulja Boy Voice* lol If living for Jesus is boring to you then to me that means a few things.
1. Perhaps your definition of fun still includes indulging in things that don’t glorify God and a renewing of the mind and heart regarding what’s considered “fun” needs to take place. (No worries, the more you pursue Christ, the more your desires change.) When I rededicated my life to Christ, I asked God to redefine what’s considered fun to me and He did.
2. You may not be plugged into a thriving community of “non-religious” believers. Religious Christians live by a list of “Dont’s” those that live according to their freedom in Christ tend to enjoy life so much more.
3. You may not be walking by faith. As for me, God is always speaking and always allowing my faith to be challenged. Therefore, there’s never a dull moment. The mission field is always busy, so boring just isn’t a reality when you’re truly pursuing Christ.
4. Is your mind focused on having fun or building the kingdom of God? #QTNA .
3. When did you decide to really “do it for the Kingdom”? (Translation: When did YOU decide to give your life to Christ for real, for real? LOL)
2014 is when I rededicated my life to Christ.
4. What advice would you give someone to help them BOLDLY share their faith?
1. Pray and ask God to give you boldness to share your faith.
2. Fellowship with bold believers and learn how they walk in boldness.
3. The Bible has tons of stories of people who chose to be bold. I’d encourage that person to read those stories and meditate on them so that they’ll be fueled when a “boldness” opportunity presents itself.
5. As a woman of God, what traits do you look for when you’re searching for your tribe (other sisters in Christ)?
1. Genuine love for God, pray, and scripture.
2. The fruit of the spirit being evident in their life. (Watching how someone treats those close to them will tell you how they’ll probably treat you.)
3. Common interest, ie- shopping, fitness, business.
4. Healthy level of self-esteem.
6. Honest moment- Do women of God really want a man of God to have his ENTIRE life figured out before he approaches her?
Maybe not his ENTIRE life but the man of God needs to have a clear vision for his life, be ACTIVELY walking in what God has called him to do in his current season and be financially, spiritually and emotionally ready to lead and cover someone else.
7. What resources do you use to feed yourself spiritually?
1. Sermons (YouTube)
4. Worship music
8. What were the BIGGEST changes you noticed in your life after you started living for Christ?
1. God called me away from A LOT of people.
2. I grew desires for things I said I would never do. (Ex: preaching and teaching God’s word)
3. My view of my value as a woman increased significantly.
9. Do you ever struggle with your faith walk and how do you overcome that?
I have the gift of faith so naturally & quite often, I believe God for crazy things with ease. However, when my faith is being challenged, I cancel fear by speaking scripture (God’s promises) over that area, repeatedly. That’s why it’s so important to read your Bible. I also have a wonderful community of believers around me that hold me accountable and remind me of God’s word in my weak moments. That’s why it’s important that we don’t walk alone as Christians. (Ecclesiastes 4:12)
10. What advice would you give your brothers in Christ regarding understanding a woman of God?
I think it’s important that our brothers seek the Holy Spirit’s help in understanding us. It also helps to truly be plugged into Christian community because it’s a safe environment to have open dialogue. Lastly, having older male mentors that are willing to share their wisdom is a huge asset.
