The Birthing

Designed to Win was birth from a “low point” in my life. There I was sitting, crying, feeling defeated. I was emotionally, mentally and financially frustrated.  So much had transpired in my life.  My relationship had become pretty nonexistent and my world was dark. As I sat there with the weight of the world on my shoulders I heard a small still voice say, Girl, Stop, Get Up! You will win, you are DESIGNED TO WIN! I realized my faith had been so drained and God spoke to me the only way, I would listen. He then reminded me to put on the full armor of God by dropping in my spirit, Ephesians 6:13-18, days after that encounter with him.

I listened to my prayer leader as I always do and her message was “What’s in your hands?”  The following day her message was “Make no room for the enemy” See whether or not we admit it, every woman has been in that “dark place” that I experienced on that afternoon. As women, we have the capability to influence everything we come in contact with. We create an effective work-life balance all while, overcoming obstacles thrown at us, the insecurities projected on to us and the devaluing that we consistently face. We must remind ourselves daily, WE ARE DESIGNED TO WIN…

There are times that your insecurities and inexperience will lead you to embrace other people’s expectations, standards and/or values that does not align with who you are. In those moments, you must harness the knowledge and self-awareness that you have of yourself. You must stand boldly and walk the path that God is leading you. Carving it out, every step of the way.

Designed to Win was created to inspire women to embrace their inner strength and beauty. Self-Value and Individuality is hard to embrace, when the world is telling you to be like everyone else. Don’t ever stop praying!!  My desire is to encourage women to grab hold of their value and create positive and powerful changes in their lives. It is my goal that when my clients put on their unique “Designed to Win” Apparel, they feel pretty enough, good enough and empowered to be who they were created to be.

Day to day struggles will not seize, they come daily, like clockwork. Each Tee is a reminder that God is with you. He will not let you fail. As Jeremiah reads, for I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. I am an instrument being used by God to give you hope, encouragement and a PUSH to remind you that, YOU ARE DESIGNED TO WIN!!!

Remember to hold on in the fire.

Blessings to you,
