My first post is in remembrance of two phenomenal women! The women that introduced me to poetry, theater, sass, class, good food, history and God-my grandmothers! My two G-loves, Catherine and Jeanne simply known to me as Mom and Noni.
The Fearless line is dedicated to them, two women that lived by faith. If they were afraid of anything, I never knew about it! They'd often say, "God said it, I believe it and that settles it!" They taught me to, "Never start anything, but to finish strong against anything incited against me!" They are both now Fearlessly walking the streets of gold! The celebration of their fearless lives along with a few God women and the encouragement of my Lover 4 Life was a wake up call for me to finish the things I started so long ago. The time has come to stop playing it so safe that we find ourselves taking the biggest risk of our lives- the risk of not living in our brilliance!
Joshua 1:9 says, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do no be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go." Too often fear immobilizes us! Fear attacks our self esteem and robs us of our dreams! I don't know about you, but I know the old Tiffane has talked herself out of so many things because, " It might not work out!" well not anymore! I refuse to shrink back and not live in my brilliance. I refuse to perpetuate a spirit of fear for my daughters! We will rise AND shine! I believe that even if we have to move afraid, we should move forward and fear less until we become fearless in every area of our lives. There are so many things I had set on the grill outside in the backyard (not on the back burner of the stove- that would be just too close) that I simply needed to start somewhere. When Peter got out of the boat he walked on water but then he began to doubt, fear, then sink. Fortunately Peter had enough sense to call out to Jesus for help! When we doubt, we can become afraid and begin to sink in this thing called life! In these moments we have to cry out to God for help and remember that God has a good plan for our lives and fear is not a part of the plan. God is our creator and He knows what He put in us and as it says in 2 Timothy 1:7, "For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love and a well-trained mind." So if God commands us not to be afraid AND tells us that He didn't give us a spirit of fear then we know exactly what to do when fear tries to encroach upon us! Send that mess right back to that fiery lake, that blazing furnace with the devil and his demons- fear is their burden to carry, not ours! What do you know you should be pursuing? Don't let fear stop you! My story of overcoming fear begins with my childhood, I am looking forward to sharing that story with you in the near future.
The shirts and stationery are the result of a specific scripture dropping into my spirit in a condensed form during different moments of my life. I am a strong believer of "confessing" God's word! On the days when I am confident in His word I enjoy wearing my shirts and hope to encourage those around me but especially on the days when I need a reminder of exactly who I am- I wear my shirts! Just as the Bible is a mirror of who I am, when I slip into one of our shirts and look in the mirror I am again reminded of exactly who and whose I am. The shirts and the stationery are one way for me to pass those confessions of good news along to others. The shirts come in black or white and are unisex with the exception of our Ephesians 5:25 shirt which is for the brothers and our Fearless defined tanks are for ladies only. Currently in the Fearless line you will find: Fearless!; Joshua 1:9, Armor Up!; Ephesians 6:11, Created to Reign!; Genesis 1:26, and specifically for the men, Love-Protect-Lead-Provide; Ephesians 5:25. There are several more in the line that will launch at predesignated times! The current stationery products are Fearless!, and Armor Up!, the stationery line also includes declaration cards: Fearless Friendships, The Fearless Woman, and The Fearless Mother. The stationery products are currently only available at our Kingdom Chic events.
My prayer for you: Father in the name of Jesus, I thank you that creating your daughter was no accident. You love her and placed your brilliant idea for her life in her before she was in her mother's womb. Your plans for her are so good! I pray right now that she would get a revelation of what it means to live the Joshua 1:9 kind of life. Lord I command her angels to go forth and prepare the way for her. I bind up the spirit of confusion where her purpose is concerned and ask you to illuminate her path and make your plan for her life clear to her. I pray that as she embraces your purpose for her life that you would give her divine favor with every person that's important to her destiny! Lord I thank you that as the trials of life come she will remember that you are with her wherever she goes so she doesn't have to be afraid! God you've not giver her a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a well-trained mind! May she operate in your power, love like you love and lead a well disciplined life. I believe she will show up on the "stage" of her life knowing that she belongs there in the name of Jesus, Amen! My sister, may you allow His love and wisdom to fearlessly guide you to your God given brilliance!
Cheering you on,
