Exodus 6:23 reveals that Moses’ sister-in-law’s name was Elisheba (or Elisheva) which translates as "God is my oath". As women of purpose, this is important to know for 2 main reasons- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Last week, lovely, we talked about what the Israelite women in Exodus 3:22 had to teach us about claiming our dreams and how to do it.
Well, another powerful lesson that they teach us is why the old cliche “your network is your net worth” is actually true- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
Raise your hand if:
You know you're significant and that, like Esther, God made you "for such a time as this"?
God has already confirmed this to you by showing you what that significant thing about you is (your purpose)?
Your purpose involves turning the gifts, talents and passions that He gave you into profits by using them to serve others (business)?
BUT you’re also not sure how to make this manifest…
Well, the Israelite women in Exodus 3 give us 3 simple steps that will help you do exactly that- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
So if you follow me on Facebook and Instagram, lovely, you would have seen that I was named 1 of 101 Women of Influence! Receiving this honour also got me thinking about what it means to be a woman of influence from a Biblical perspective, especially because:
God promotes us so that we can ultimately promote Him
Every God-sized vision is going to require a team (so you will need to know how to go about being influential so that others will help make your vision a reality)
When I started to think about the how or the blueprint to becoming a woman of influence, I found myself back in Exodus 2 because Miriam and Pharaoh’s Daughter displayed the very definition of “influence”- which is:
“The action or process of producing effects on the actions, behaviour, opinions etc of another or others”
I shared all of this and more via the (live) video below.
There are 5 ladies of great significance in Moses’ early life, as detailed in Exodus 1 and 2:
Jochebed (his biological mother)
Shiphrah (his midwife)
Puah (also his midwife)
Miriam (his sister)
Pharaoh’s daughter (his adopted mother)
What struck me most about them is how they buck the traditional stereotype that women can’t get along! I mean, sis, they literally all came together in order to preserve their joint vision- protecting Moses and keeping him alive- despite the fact that the Pharaoh reigning at the time had commanded that all Hebrew boys be killed at birth!
Not only that, they did it successfully!
So clearly these 5 bad-ass women have a lot to teach us about the power of collaboration in bringing our God-given visions to life and how to do it- all of which I shared on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below.
When I was in secondary (or high) school our head mistress taught us a song in one of our assemblies. The lyrics were:
"Accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mr. In-between"
I know you're probably wondering how this all ties in with today's theme and title, right lovely?
Okay, let me explain!
It occurred to me that in all my recent chat about relationships, I'd only really talked about how to set healthy boundaries in them- aka how to swat away negative, unhealthy or non purposeful relationships.
Yet I hadn't spent much time talking about how you can build positive, healthy and purposeful relationships so that you can harness their power (as detailed here). To fix that, I shared exactly that on my Facebook page this week via the (live) video below!
In today's interview, I will be talking about how to win the dating game with amazing dating and relationship "fixer" Stacii Jae Johnson (of Staciijaejohnson.com).
By the end of this video you will know:
- How women can feel more empowered during the dating process
- The key reasons women should date multiple men (without intimacy) to find the one
- How women can develop self-love and set boundaries while dating
- And much more!
Sound like your cup of tea, lovely?
Great! You can do whatever it is you need to do to get comfortable and press play to access this awesome conversation, below:
The Book of Esther chronicles Esther’s ascension to the throne as well as the exploits that she achieved for her people as queen. If you’re familiar with this story, and you’re anything like me, then you strongly associate it with a particular line- which can be found at the tail end of Esther 4:14-
“Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
If you’re not, don’t worry! I will be jumping into the meat of her story shortly. But, for now, I just want to concentrate on that scripture…
I personally love it because it speaks of purpose in the following ways:
