Happy New Year! I am so excited to enter into the new year 2019! When I look all around me and think about all the things I survived and all the ways I thrived I can't help but to be thankful. I am thankful to God for all the lessons learned and for his grace that covered me. I am so proud of the work that In Her Space has produced. It has been purposeful, impactful, compassionate and real. This is only the beginning. There is so much more that we have yet to experience and so many stories yet to share. 2018 presented many challenges for me. I questioned my identity, grieved the things I loss, and had to find my voice even though life made me speechless at times. What I have learned on this journey is that no matter what is going on in your life there is a piece of you that has to remain rooted and grounded. My experience taught me that there is a part of you that must remain centered. Life will shake us. Life and difficulty will strip us of the things we thought were sure. My journey has taught me that uncertainty creates an opportunity for faith to abound. Uncertainty creates opportunity to build new relationships and trust the process will work out for our best.
Here at in her space we will continue to provide content that uplifts and inspires. Our workshops will empower and give hope for the future. Our podcasts will continue to create spaces for women to share their journey and give voice to our experience. So often we are spoon fed our narrative by media sources that have no intention for the care of our communities. In Her Space is on a mission to elevate the voices of women. We will tell our own stories. We will tell our stories of love, hurt, triumph and survival. We will celebrate the success of our sisters. We will be the light for our younger sisters who are still trying to find their way. We will honor the legacy of those who paved the way for us to have the opportunity to speak freely with the knowledge that it was through great sacrifice we obtained this freedom. We welcome you to In Her Space... find your way to contribute, we would love to have you. Join us as we kick off 2019 with our first event "The Vision To Win" Vision journal workshop on Saturday January 27th www.thevisiontowin2019.eventbrite.com . Embrace uncertainty with full joy. The destination is important but the journey develops our character. I don't care what it looks like, what it feels like in the end you win! We are coming out of 2018 stronger, wiser, better and yet the best is still to come! Come journey with us In Her Space! Happy New Year and may 2019 bring you overwhelming love and success! Thank you for you continued support of In Her Space. We couldn't do it without you!
Love and blessings,
