I am a mother who never seems to have enough time to get things done.
I am a wife who is learning to balance my position as a godly wife while maintaining my own identity.
I am a “big” sister who sometimes does not have all the answers, but has learned that God does.
Even when I am in the midst of my own personal crisis, I am an aunt who supports and motivates.
I am a daughter who still aspires to please her parents.
Although being discouraged at times, I am a business owner who continues to walk by faith and not by sight.
I AM A WOMAN, AND I AM YOU!
This journey that I call life has not been easy. It has presented many challenges, but each challenge has given me the opportunity to change and to grow into the woman I am today.
Like so many women, I have experienced bad relationships, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, health issues, loneliness, lack of direction/purpose, trust issues, and so much more. But in the midst of it all, I STAND!! I NOT ONLY STAND, BUT I STAND BOLDLY! I SPEAK BOLDLY! I LIVE BOLDLY! AND I DO IT ALL,UNAPOLOGETICALLY!
I have learned the importance of having God in everything I do and why God needs to take center stage in my life. And this is what has helped me. With this experience, I sought to help other women attain this level of fulfillment and joy with God.
My faith in God has caused mountains to be moved, walls to be torn down, obstacles to be eliminated from the path I was traveling on. But my God didn’t just clear the way; He also directed my steps as I moved forward. I couldn’t do anything when I relied solely on my human abilities, but when I relied on God, I’ve discovered that I could accomplish the seemingly impossible.
I haven’t always had the same level of faith as I do now. In reality, it was pretty weak at one point in my life. Through the help of the Holy Spirit, I have developed a relationship with God that has helped me know Him better.
Family is a blessing, and I am thankful to have mine. Our teen daughter is blossoming into a God-fearing young woman, and my husband is kind and supportive. We make it a priority to spend time together as a family and we never end the day without saying “I love you.”
When I am not spending time with my family, I enjoy traveling, reading, writing, and watching action movies.
I BELIEVE in enjoying every day, SO I MAKE EVERY EFFORT NOT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE LITTLE THINGS OR THINGS OVER WHICH I HAVE NO CONTROL. I am intentional about looking for the “good” in every situation. Surrounding myself with “like-minded” people helps me to stay focused on the positive. I have learned to be content with what I have regardless of the situation. Everything in my life is not perfect, but it is perfect enough for me.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
I use to keep a prayer journal but I thought I was doing it wrong because people always say you have to get on your knees and pray. I like writing my prayers down because it seemed as if I could express myself better. You truly are a blessing Jamie. Thank you so much for taking time out to do God’s work. You give people like me a better understanding. I thank you because I feel closer to God, and I have been going to church all my life, but it’s so much I didn’t understand until now.— Sameka J.
I started reading your book and couldn’t put it down. To God be the glory for being the inspiration for this book. It is truly your spiritual journey of faith. I thank God for your honesty and transparency. This is a powerful testimony of an all powerful God! My prayer is that He continues to use you in service to inspire and encourage others.— Sharon F.
I truly enjoyed our first session. I was able to pick up on some tips to make my prayer, I feel, more effective–like adding the scriptures and calling out the sin committed and being more mindful of time spent with God. Such as having a specific place to meet with Him and time. It has been humbling because, to call out your actual sin makes you think, “I really did that.” Just to hear myself say it causes me not to want to mess up again. Yet, I appreciate your teachings and time.— Lisa S.

Praying for others is one of the most powerful gifts that you can give. And it is a gift that I enjoy giving. Whatever season you are experiencing in your life, requires prayer. No matter how good or bad things are; you should pray without ceasing. However, there are those times that are most difficult and although you are praying you still need others praying with and for you. If you are in need of prayer, submit your request and rest assured that I will lift your name to our Heavenly Father. Prayer combined with Faith causes Jesus to move in unimaginable ways.
Faith-filled and Captivating
