God is building up a generation of women how know how to fight!

I don’t know about you, but this series has blessed me in ways I didn’t initially imagine that it would. Honestly I wasn’t as fierce or fiercely His as I thought before this started.

Maybe you've said some extremely hurtful words to a friend. You've found yourself lying to your spouse. Maybe you yelled at your toddler 5 times yesterday.

You are loved….so very, very loved. So I have this passion; passion to just speak life in to others and to see them rise up into their purpose and what God has designed them to be. Lately I’ve felt very strongly about this and I believe that for the last couple of years God has been developing and birthing that passion with in me.
