Many of you know my story. A few of you actually walked by my side through the darkest parts of it almost 9 years ago. Some of you know bits and pieces from social media and/or reading various things I've written over the years. But there are also many new faces joining me each day as we seek to live life with expectant hearts who don't know much of my story. If you're a new face, I'm thankful to be able to invite you into this space of mine today. Why do I think it's important to share my story with you? Because our stories matter. Mine matters. Yours matters. And God uses our stories to speak His truth and hope into one another. And that's what I hope mine will do for you. A little over a month ago I had the opportunity to share parts of my story on stage at a women's conference held by my local church. I was part of a conversation panel that discussed how we can push back fear and doubt to move forward in faith. The questions and experience were so powerful that I also wanted to share them with you too. This is the first post in a series where I'll be sharing my responses to the questions on the panel. Here's an overview: 1. My story: When the Unexpected Brings You into the Wilderness 2. What fears and doubts previously held you back or maybe currently hold you back from pursuing Jesus? 3. In the midst of fears and doubts, it's easy to fall into some unhealthy patterns, what has that looked like for you? 4. How have you stayed faithful to pursuing Jesus in the midst of doubt and fear? (How have you intentionally and practically carried out your faith?) 5. What final thoughts and words of wisdom can you share with women who are in a hard season right now or are maybe struggling with basic fears of insecurity, comparison, or doubt? (How can you encourage them to say "Yes" to God in the midst?) // Visit the link in my profile to read When the Unexpected Brings You Into the Wilderness and make sure you’re subscribed to receive the rest of the series right in your inbox. I hope this encourages your heart if the unexpected has ever shaken your life and your faith. #anexpectantheart #hopewriters

Got MRI results back. Brain is completely normal 💃🏾💃🏾💃🏾. __ If that is the case, why was I lactating? Apparently my body thinks I'm taking too much time to start a family. It took it upon itself to start the process on my behalf🤣🤣. No man, no baby but producing breast milk - modern day Mary. __ Maybe it's time for the house with a white picket fence 🤔 . The thought of that is...frightful and almost laughable. I have never really considered marriage as part of my immediate future. It's always been a 'some day' aspiration. Interestingly, everyday for the past two weeks I have been hounded with the idea of marriage. To make matters worse, I was taking a shower this morning and started singing "Here comes the bride" out of nowhere. I promptly told myself to stop that nonsense and a few seconds later started singing again. After which, I just burst out laughing. Seems like whether you like it or not, life takes you in directions that you have no control over. __ Pain and weakness still persist. No conclusive reason. Time will reveal. For now, I will carry my cross with grace. __ #housewithawhitepicketfence #notmywillbutyours #ithinkmybodywantsababy #mri #stillstanding #url #nothingisimpossible #apapatrafficisanightmare #apapawillbegreatagain

50 or more years since they last got a round in The Castle, five old codgers - one wearing two right shoes and two who couldn't remember how to tie a bow (no names - you know who you are) - warm up for a great evening at Emmanuel. #stillstanding #emmacambridge #thankstoemma

So on this beautiful Monday morning a friend sent me a little reminder of .... and a whole lot on inspiration and motivation. Can’t believe you still have this 😬. #littlethings #positivevibes 🙅🏻‍♀️#stillstanding #powerful #motivated
Do you ever wear a dress that looks and feels great.... until you sit down and suddenly you turn into a string of sausages and can’t breathe but you’re already in a car and on your way to work so there’s nothing you can do but regret eating that bar of chocolate last night? #dontsitdown #stillstanding #slimmingworld #slimmingworlddubai #slimmingworldfollowers #slimmingworlduae #weightlossjourney

On working through career challenges & the importance of having a strong support system, here’s @chef_benedict ’s #IDidItIn5 story ⤵️• • • “Looking at the last 5 years of my life, I must admit that regardless of the daily difficulty that I have had to face with lagos I am happy with what I have accomplished . 5 years ago I was fresh out of culinary school going to gelato university and finishing up stages(internships) in restaurants in Italy. There was a lot of confusion and uncertainty, but there was a direction . I came to lagos 2 and half years ago, a city and country I left 20 years ago, and started something that many people thought I was mad to even do but eventually they all came around and I have managed to create a name for myself in such a demanding environment. This 2018 has been the most difficult year one that has had me thinking of quitting many times but it is also the year I have had many important people in my life give me strength. A few of these people are new others were always there, either way I am grateful to have them with me on this journey . It’s been a roller coaster but everyday has been about growth, both with the good and bad . Thank you and cheers to the next 5...💪🏿 #IDidItIn5 ! #CelebrateWhatYouDo #StillStanding #5YearsStrong #wediditin5 ”
Good Morning beautiful people and Happy Motivational Monday!! I hope everyone had a good and safe weekend, yesterday I was in bed all day because I think I'm catching a damn cold ughh. I'm up and on my way to see my ortho doctor for my right hip, I think it's time to get it replaced. My right hip has been hurting more than usual and it has been locking up on me often so it's time but I'm fighting through the pain because that's what lupus warriors do. This week's song of the week is called "Judge Me" by my girl K.Michelle, I choose this song because lupies get judged often if not every day. You can't judge a book by the cover, STOP JUDGING it's not cool especially lupies who judge other lupies definitely not cool and it needs to stop because we fight the same fight every single day. Instead of judging how about you uplift one another.....💜💜💜💜#MotivationalMonday #SongOfTheWeek #KMichelle #JudgeMe #lupusfighter #14yrsurvivor #stillstanding #phucklupus #kissmyasslupus #lupuswontbringmedown #lupuswillnotwin #supportlupusawareness #spreadlupusawareness #blessed #thankful #knowlupus Judge me, judge me all you want I'm only human, and I'm perfectly flawed I know it's easy to point your finger at me 'Cause I say the things that only y'all think So judge me if you need, I bet Eve was just like me - K.Michelle *I DON'T OWN THE RIGHTS TO THIS SONG*
The best view comes after the hardest climb.
When everything weighed me down and nearly split me in half. Somehow, I found the courage and strength to stand back up. I may have bent a little, but I did not break and for that I’m grateful. #Flexibility #bentnotbroken #strength #stillstanding

De nos jours la gentillesse est perçue comme une faiblesse, moi j’ai décidé d’en faire une force. A tous ceux qui m’ont blessée ou déçue, je resterai moi-même que ça vous plaise ou non. ✨ #onmyway #stillthesame #stillstanding #frenchgirl #smile #redlips

Using the body as one cohesive unit. As you can see combining strength, endurance,coordination and balance adds a whole new level of difficulty. _ This focuses on connecting the chain. As you stumble, it teaches your body how to react and compensate as one. _ Started day 1 of my favorite program that will take me up until Christmas. Always excited to have that "Day 1" feeling 💪 #NeverMissAMonday
Looking at the last 5 years of my life, I must admit that regardless of the daily difficulty that I have had to face with lagos I am happy with what I have accomplished . 5 years ago I was fresh out of culinary school going to gelato university and finishing up stages(internships) in restaurants in Italy. There was a lot of confusion and uncertainty, but there was a direction . I came to lagos 2 and half years ago, a city and country I left 20 years ago, and started something that many people thought I was mad to even do but eventually they all came around and I have managed to create a name for myself in such a demanding environment.
