Smart & Sweet

Mean mommas oftentimes create mini-me versions of themselves. I don’t know how else to say it.

Empowering other women is a huge topic lately – as it should be. However, if we are truly here to empower other women then we need to model that behavior for our daughters – in public and in privacy.

It starts at home, y’all.

In retrospect, what’s done in the privacy of your own home – isn’t really private. After all, Alexa is listening to our every word.

This is actually where the rubber meets the road. It’s where the real us can really be us.

And who do we really want to be when no one else is watching but our daughter?

I want to be a strong, Jesus-loving, Bible-toting, verse-slanging, Holy Ghost filled woman that exudes love and grace in everything she says and does. That’s a tough feat – I know. But if we are gonna have goals shouldn’t that be the one to have?

▪️Strong mommas hold their tongues.

▪️Strong mommas often keep their opinion to themselves – because that’s what it is – an opinion.

▪️Strong mommas pay the compliment.

▪️Strong mommas don’t have any room for jealousy because they are filled with Jesus.

▪️Strong mommas lift other women up.

▪️Strong mommas don’t spew ugly.

▪️Strong mommas point their babies toward Jesus.

I want to raise a young lady that fights for justice and loves like Jesus. A girl that’s strong and sweet. A girl that’s brave and benevolent.

So when the door is shut and the blinds are closed and it’s just my little family – I’ll be trying my best to do just that. Lifting others up and leading my little family to Jesus. It’s my greatest calling. It’s my greatest goal.

“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Proverbs 31:30
