Real Life...Real Women...Real Issues
When I go to a restaurant my friends usually get frustrated with me because I always take a long time to order. There are so many choices on the menu its hard for me to decide. I am the one that needs to look at the menu ahead of time so that the waitress is not giving me a cold stare. On top of that, with all the options and choices available, I still seem to make up my very own specialty meal. How that happens , it still seems to baffle me.
No matter what or where we find ourselves in life, options are all around us. The option of what church we will join, what school we will go to, where we will live, who we will date, and what we will wear. We have the option to tell the truth or lie. We have the option to eat healthy, the option to be faithful and the option to pray. No one forces violence upon us to make a choice. The question is do we make a choice based upon our faith or our flesh. Just because something is presented before you does not mean its for you.
Ladies, I had to learn this the hard way in every area of my life. Just because I am presented with a credit card does not mean sign up for it. Just because someone offers a slice of cake does not mean I have to eat it. Let a presentation be just that. Learn how to say no when need be if your not led by Holy Spirit. When it comes to the things of God the only option that is acceptable is obedience. Ladies, the choices we make are powerful. Maybe you are having a week in which you feel you did not make the best choices or options, recognize it-deal with it and get back in the perfect will of God!
Ladies, we have work to do. The choice is yours! I pray the only option that is acceptable for you is obeying the will of the Father!
Happy Rubies Friday! I don’t know about you but I am shining so bright through the love and ordained purposes of God. I want to personally thank all of you who supported FAR Enterprises by listening to our very first radio broadcast show on Spirit 1400 AM with myself and co host Reggie G. It was absolutely amazing. We talked about is Chivalry Dead? What a great response from callers! Please make sure to set the date for our next show on Spirit 1400 AM 1/30/15 @ 4pm EST. You can also stream the show live at www.mybaltimorespirit.com Next week we are talking about healthy communication within relationships. Reggie G and I can’t wait to hear from you!
Ladies, have you ever been consumed by the goodness and glory of God? This week I have been in praise and worship where I have felt the presence of God so strongly. It has been the best intimacy ever. I didn’t go with a list or my own agenda; all I desired to do was magnify the Lord for great and mighty is HE!
Ladies, all I can repeat is the song by Jonathan Nelson, EXPECT THE GREAT! Do not let another day go by thinking that things are just as usual. I have an announcement. God is moving outside your usual circle and expectations so raise your level of expectancy. How can you raise your level of expectancy? I am so glad you asked? Praise God in advance! Thank Him for your today and your future, and read aloud Psalms 1 on a daily bases. Ladies, trust and believe we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works that God has prepared beforehand for us to walk in. EXPECT THE GREAT!
There are many exciting things happening with FAR Enterprises and we want to make sure you are a part. Join the movement by texting FAR to 40691, join the network by registering at www.farenterprises.biz and join the 2nd annual conference, “Identity Crisis” that will be hosted in NC.
Ladies, I love you and I am praying for you. So I encourage you to believe the report of the Lord. Give God praise in advance and EXPECT THE GREAT!

Do We Still Need Vanna White?
Hello Ladies! Let me officially say Happy New Year! We are now in mid January. How are you feeling about 2015? What goals did you set? What revelation did God share with you? What changes are you going to make because you will no longer make excuses or procrastinate? I believe that 2015 will be the year for Revival, Regimen and Reign. I believe we will be revived in many areas of our life. Areas that were stagnant and dry will begin to breathe and grow. I also believe that this is the year of consistency with a clear plan of direction. We will make time for the things God is calling us to. Finally, this will be a year of reign a year in which we will rule and take ownership of things in our life. (we are royalty) I don’t know about you but I am excited! So no matter what, stay focused, be renewed and take authority!
When I do get some down time I indulge in a few television shows. In addition to watching The Newlywed Game I also at times watch Wheel of Fortune. No matter how young or old you might be we all remember watching this show. As I was watching, I said to myself not many things have changed. For the most part you have three contestants, the big wheel, and the one and only Vanna White! I said to myself, with the technology we have, do we still need Vanna White? And the answer is YES
Vanna White has now become the brand for Wheel of Fortune. She has become the brand so much that the show would not be the same without her. If any of us would turn on the television this evening and watch Wheel of Fortune and there was no Vanna White, we would start buzzing about it. Why, because she has been successfully branded with the show.
What is your brand? When people think about you or your business, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is your brand consistent? Is your brand creating a need or commanding attention? Is your brand creating continued success and prosperity? Don’t just use your gift, brand your gift. Here is my advice for all of us. As we make our marketing , social media and financial plans for our business, don’t forget about your brand because we still do need Vanna White.

It has been forever since we had a real good girl to girl talk. I have missed you all dearly. After the 1st Annual Women's Retreat for FAR, I pretty much took a LONG break. I want to thank many of you who reached out stating how much you have missed our weekly messages. I am glad to be back and I need to catch you up on lots of great things!
FAR is now FAR Enterprises! We have extended the brand and I am so excited. If you have not already, take a look at the new site. (www.farenterprises.biz) We just tweaked a few things but we are already planning for our 2015 FAR Women's Conference in NC. In addition we just launched the FAR Network. Ladies it is time to be inspired and stay inspired. Bishop's message today as we prepare for 2015 was "It's Your Time!" I don't know about you but I receive it in the name of Jesus. Not only is 2015 going to be special and phenomenal but also accelerated. The question I have for us is, are we ready?
Now on a personal note, many of you know that I have been dealing with painful fibroids for a while. If you listen to the FAR Blog Talk Radio Show with myself and Reggie G, I am taking communion and anointing myself daily where those fibroids are located believing that I am healed. Even in preparation for surgery in January, I just believe these fibroids have already decreased in size by FAITH. During this time I am also praying for women nationwide who are dealing with fibroids, cysts, ovarian cancer and or having difficulties conceiving. If you know of women who are dealing with these issues, please respond to this blog with their name, we are bombarding heaven because by HIS strips we are HEALED!
Last but now least, I have to catch you up on Jase. He is one year old and is the most handsome Sheepdog ever. This morning I put him outside to feed him, when I returned to get him he was gone! I was DEVASTATED! You would have thought I gave birth to this dog. I know that might sound crazy but Jase is a part of the family. I cried so much I felt like I was 5 years old. We called the police and I am so grateful for them. They were able to find Jase within 30 minutes. Things could have been much worse. He was not harmed or injured. He is now back home with his doggy mommy!
Okay ladies, make sure to join the movement. If you have not done so already, text FAR to 40691 and get updates, alerts and inspirational messages from yours truly. Also starting in January the FAR Blog Talk Radio Show will be going live on Spirit AM 1400! To God be the glory for the GREAT things he has done. The show will broadcast Fridays at 4pm.
Ladies, remember with GOD all things are possible. As you prepare for Christmas know that Jesus is the reason for the season. What and who can we be a blessing to? Ministry is much bigger than the four walls!
So ladies, lets pray for our families, leaders and communities. Let’s give of our time and treasure to those who are less fortunate. Last but not least keep the Williamson family in prayer. Their home caught fire and this family of five has lost everything. BUT GOD! So ladies lets come in agreement that every need shall be met with Heaven's BEST! (If you would like to be a blessing to this family please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org).

Hello Ladies and Happy Sunday!
My prayer on last week is that all of you had a fulfilling week? So, was that the case? I hope so. Even if your week had its moments of ups and downs, were you still pressing forward with a spirit of gratitude? Did you make every effort to give God praise just for His grace and protection over your life? Ladies, just know that our heavenly father's desire is that you lack absolutely nothing. This week my prayer for you is that every need is met with heaven's best!
As most of you know, the retreat is just about two weeks away. I am diligently praying for our speakers and all of you who are attending. I also want to encourage you when God gives you a vision He will also provide the provision. I have heard this statement many times but it’s a much different magnitude when you have to wrap your faith around those words and trust God.
When I was in church last Sunday, we had a healing service. Many believers gave their testimony on how they had been healed from various diseases and afflictions. Someone in church stated that FAITH to them means-(Fully Acknowledge I Trust Him). Ladies, what has God instructed you to do? Does the vision seem greater that your resources or budget? Can I tell you NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD!
My prayer this week is that you write the vision and make it plain. My prayer is that you FAITH (Fully Acknowledge I Trust Him) and that you are encouraged that whenever God gives the vision he will give provision as well. Ladies, we don't have to worry about a thing. Let all things be well with your soul.
