How do I make my life matter

How to Get Strong and Free.

How to Get Strong and Free.

So if you’re resigned to fear, inertia, boredom, isolation, selfishness, or aimlessness, YOU ARE NOT FREE. All that stuff is diminishing you, stealing your potential and keeping you from your good life purpose.

I’m not saying my life is easy now, it’s just hard in different ways. I had to confront my own fear, shame, loneliness, anxiety and love of control. Believe me, it’s a process, but you can’t get free and whole without swimming that moat, and the only way you become a good swimmer is by swimming.

What is a Firegirl?

See, you have a destiny on your life and until you get busy doing that thing you were created to do, and loving a bunch of people along the way, your rut will only get narrower and deeper. It’s not about chasing happiness, it’s about living in your good purpose.

“But what do I do? I’ve tried everything and nothing changes,” you moan. 

We get it. We’ve been there, but we got out.

And actually, that’s where your own joy and esteem is found.

What It Means to Catch Fire

What It Means to Catch Fire

A Firegirl is a woman who is no longer afraid to fail, in fact she doesn't even believe in the word. She's disciplined herself to live her life on purpose, come what may. She makes bold moves and leaves the earth looking more like heaven in a hundred little ways behind her.

She is an ambassador, a fragrance, a child of God and she sees people for who they can be, not who they currently are. She is magnetic, alive, brave and even foolish - the light in her eyes is a stunning and curious thing. It's so different, people ask about it.

How Do I Do Justice?

How Do I Do Justice?

Do you see how by doing what's right for someone else, your life gets richer and more interesting? In a puzzle of a thousand tiny pieces, a picture starts to form. This is our job. On earth, as it is in heaven. 

Of course it's no sacrifice for me to have Shelby over, I love it when she's here, but some things I do are sacrifices, but even then I win. As I build this muscle, inclining my behavior toward justice for people who need it, I am satisfied. This is the system God built and it's incredible.

Four Things A #Firegirl Knows For Sure

Have you ever found yourself saying, “I want to make my life matter but I don’t know how.” 

You think about it, dream about it, buy gratitude journals, create vision boards on Pinterest, read self-help books and still day after day, you do the same old work, have drinks with the same old people, love your family in the same old ways.
