Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me! I remember hearing those words as a young girl and saying, are you kidding me. Words hurt and some words hurt so bad that you feel like you just got the wind knocked out of you. But it wasn't until recently that I learned that words have NO POWER. We give them power by breathing life into them. How you ask, let me explain.
I remember getting into arguments with my brother when I was younger because he called me a name. My mom would come busting in our room asking what's going on and I would say something silly like, Corey called me a name and her question to me was, are you the name he called you and I would sit there with the stupid face and say “NO” and her response to me would be, so why did you respond or why does it bother you. Well you know what Keeper's. I gave his words life and even as an adult I use to do the same thing. Someone would say something about me and what would I do “RESPOND”. There I go giving words life again.
But there is an even more damaging side to giving words life and it's called believing them. There are millions of wounded people walking around, because they choose to give other peoples words life and they do this by #1. breathing life into them by acknowledging their words and #2. holding onto them so long that they began to believe them. It's extremely hard to defeat something you believe in or something you have been carrying around for so long. So I ask you to please stop giving life to words that you know are used to hurt you.. If the words don't pertain to you, leave them alone.

God has blessed me way to much for me not to share what I know. He has supplied me with wisdom that some people never receive. When I wake up in the morning my thoughts are how can I help someone "GET IT". How can I help women understand that they can be God fearing, happy, established and successful. My passion lies within you. I want you to receive what I'm telling you. There's someone amazing inside of you. She knows who she is, she knows what she want and she's ready to make her appearance. My inner "Champion" was screaming at the top of her lungs to be released and when I let her loose she blew me away. I never knew I was so "CAPABLE", but God knew. I walk by faith and I talk to God about any and everything, but I'm also smart enough to take action. My passion, goals and desire is to impact lives, not just planting seeds. I want to help you, help them grow and harvest
