Rising Strong

There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fear mongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise with skinned knees and bruised hearts; we choose owning our stories of struggle, Over hiding, over hustling, over pretending.



Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.

― C. JoyBell C.

Greatest Challenge


You are closest to your victory when you face your greatest challenge.


We May Encounter Many Defeats But We Must Not Be Defeated.

— Maya Angelou



Don’t put your hope in your circumstances or in people; they may let you down. Put your hope in the Lord.

Keep On Trying

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

– Dale Carnegie



It’s not who is right that’s important, it’s what is right. Keep the peace. When you’re a peacemaker, you’re blessed.


Respect other people’s feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.

― Roy T. Bennett

New Level


When you’re in a low place, you have to look out through your eyes of faith. What you can’t see right over that next hill is something amazing, a new level. See yourself overcoming that problem, see yourself healthy, restored, accomplishing your dreams.


I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.

― Albert Einstein
