Day 5 “Unshakeable Confidence” | The Mommy Devotional

 

Standing firm, knowing who you are, and Whose you are…That is unshakable confidence!

With this level of confidence you know that God is for you, and His promises apply to you, as a whole mom! You’re not comparing your journey as a mom to anyone else’s, nor are you trying to outdo or outrun anyone… not even your “haters”. You’re creating and living your bomb life, on your terms… mastering the Harmony and flow that works in alignment with what you desire. 

So let’s talk about Harmony.

Mastering Harmony is all about knowing how to navigate the seasons of your journey. This is why you must have the confidence to remain focused on you, without looking to the left or to the right. When you’re  “drinking your water and minding your business”, keeping your eyes on Christ, you’ll know exactly how to align your expectations, priorities and honor your boundaries. And as the scripture says “we prosper and excel in every season by serving the Lord”, that is being in alignment with Him.

Momma, it is our “Union with Christ” that allows the labor of our hands to be fruitful, because we are following His blueprint  for our lives! I love how clearly Psalm 37:4 explains it Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life,
and he will provide for you what you desire the most“. Like sis, what are you waiting for!

I promise you, once you align with Christ, and finally give yourself permission to…

🔥 Shift your mommy mindset and address limiting beliefs
🔥 Demolish and let go of what no longer serves you
🔥 Dream and rewrite the narrative of what you want mom life to look like for you
🔥 Activate your faith with action, leaving the “how” in God’s hands

… you’ll experience a Mommy Makeover like no other! Everything you desire, is found in Him (remember Psalm 37:4)!

Just imagine how it would feel finally figure out how to experience 

The Time freedom you desire, doing what you want when you want
Harmony & Flow in your home, instead of chaos and overwhelm 
Clarity, CONFIDENCE & consistency in your business, instead of confusion and burnout
Increased influence, impact and income,  instead of busy work and lack
A selfcare & fitness routine that lasts, without the mom guilt
Increased intimacy in your marriage, a sex life that excites you
Spiritual wholeness & alignment, knowing who you are, WHOSE you are

Momma, I know… it would be amazing! And let me tell you… this is exactly what God desires for your life as well! He wants you whole, to be in good health and to prosper! This is how we can show up fully for our families! We have to live in overflow. God is not holding anything back from you, and if you’re courageous enough to redefine mom life on your terms, and you’re ready to ditch the overwhelm and unapologetically create the life you desire and deserve… I want to extend an invitation for you to learn more about how we continue our journey together to make this your reality! Click here to learn more!

Remember, God isn’t holding anything back from you. You deserve the life you desire! 

 

As you reflect on today’s verse, and listen to today’s worship, Ask God to show you how to confidently show up and take action!  Ask God to bring the people into your life, who are called to empower you and guide you, as you experience your own Mommy MakeOver!

Day 4 “The ‘How’ is God’s Job” | The Mommy Devotional

When it comes to our dreams and goals, we have to set the vision and make it plain (Habakkuk 2:2), and DETACH from the “HOW”! It is not our job to figure out all of the details.

Momma, we have to STOP TRYING TO FORCE THE RESULTS!!! That’s God’s job. He has the blueprint. Our only job is to get the vision for what we desire for our lives (read day 3 here), get into alignment (faith with works) and ensure our words and actions line up! 

One of the things I teach my moms is to focus on the ”what I can do goals”. These are the things we can do to get into alignment and prepare for what we desire.This has nothing to do with forcing, its all about positioning! Being in position for God to move and exceed your most unimaginable dreams!

I remember when I wanted to attend this conference last year. It was one of my most significant investments financially for a conference, and it was an all day 4 day virtual event. 

I knew I needed to be there, I knew God had something major to download. However, when I started to think about “how” I would make it work with the way my life is set up as a mom… I got overwhelmed. I seriously couldn’t see how I would be able to be fully present for this conference annnd care for Dream over those 4 days! Like how, when it’s just me and this baby up in this house! 

That’s when the revelation of this verse spoke to me… “NEVER DOUBT GOD’S MIGHTY POWER TO ACCOMPLISH ALL THIS”! Yaaass! I focused on my “what I can do goals” and left the how in God’s hands. So I purchased my ticket, and began to line up the things I could control on my end.

✅ I diligently woke up early to start my day before Dream woke up (game changer)
✅ I meal prepped for the four days so I didn’t  have to cook or worry about food 
✅ I made sure all of my devices (phone, iPad,  Laptop and EarPods) were fully charged so I could tune in from any room in the house. 

And do you know how it went? It was greater than what I expected! Despite being home alone with a very active toddler,  I didn’t miss a thing! I was able to attended every session, including the VIP day and breakout group sessions! 

Oh, and  it’s super important for me to mention that It was at this conference that God made it extremely clear that I was to shift in my business, and specifically pour into moms!

So momma, I need you to  detach from the how.  You don’t have to have it all figured out.  Remember, we have the vision, and yes we must be specific with our dreams  and desires! But… The “HOW” is up to God! And let me tell you…can’t nobody show up and show off like our Heavenly Father! So let Him do what He does best… exceeding your most unbelievable dreams!!!

 

In what areas have you been trying to force what you want? As you reflect on today’s verse, and listen to today’s worship, Ask God to reveal this to you, so you can get out of your own way. He’s not holding anything back from you!

Day 3 “Permission to Dream” | The Mommy Devotional

Many of of us as moms are in constant go mode. We’re living out the narratives of others, going with the flow of what others have told us mom life should look like, without really taking the time to decided if that “flow” is what we really want for ourselves! 

That’s exactly what happened to me! Before I went through my own personal Mommy MakeOver, I didn’t even realize that I was following some pretty limiting narratives.  From “your sex life won’t be the same after kids”, to “you won’t have a life until your kids are grown…”, and even “You’re going to feel mom guilt for the rest of your life”. (Yes, sis… someone told me that)!

like why is that the norm??

Well I decided to let go of those limiting beliefs (read day two), and I gave myself permission to dream and decide for myself! Like, literally! I sat down and wrote out everything I wanted and desired for myself in every area of my life! From my mindset, to my marriage, in my home and business…I had to redefine mom life for myself! And can I tell you this, the intimacy in my marriage is popping (🗣 you hear me), I’ve implemented systems & strategies so that I no longer sit in overwhelm or mommy guilt, and I’m creating and living  my best life right now! YAAAASSS!!!

I had to redefine mom life on my terms! 

 

What about you momma? 

✨What kind of mom do you want to be?
✨What kind of marriage do you want to have?
✨What type of business do you want to build?
✨What about your children? How do you want to show up for them?
✨Ever think about your day? How do you want that to flow?
✨What about you, momma? What kind of woman do you want to be?
✨How do you want to show up for yourself?

I pose  a very similar line of questions to the moms I work with. We do an exercise where I present to them what I call “The Harmony Wheel”, and they use this as a visual guide to decide what they desire!  From their faith, to their fitness journey… all the way to their finances, my moms are required to dream! And I don’t mean wishy washy, shallow dreams. No momma,  we get really real, and super specific! The work is deep, revealing,  and I truly believe this activates Ephesians 3:20.  From my perspective, how can expect God to do “infinitely MORE than our greatest request”, if we haven’t even decided what we wanted for ourselves?

Like I know, God can do anything. But please don’t miss the point here! God honors and responds to specificity! 

So I encourage you…

Give yourself the grace, space and permission to dream and actually admit to yourself WHAT YOU desire! Matt 7:7-8 is your promise, as a whole mom…. so dream momma, don’t leave anything on the table! 

You deserve the life you desire!

 

I encourage you to spend some time with God, today! As you reflect on today’s verse and listen to today’s worship, what is God saying to you? What do you desire for your life?

Day 2 “Mommy Mindset” | The Mommy Devotional

The way our minds are set up, there is no way to experience a true Mommy MakeOver, going from overwhelm to overflow, creating the life you desire, without addressing your mommy mindset!

One of the biggest mindset shifts I’ve had to make as a mom, was in giving myself permission to do what was necessary in order to become the woman I am today. I first had to give myself permission to let go of limiting beliefs, opinions of others and unhealthy narratives that were not in alignment with who I wanted to be, as a mom, a wife, a business owner… As Reese!!

I had to courageously attack and “DEMOLISH”  every deceptive thought head on! Getting super clear about what I’d been telling myself, calling  it out for the whole lie that it is, and replacing it with the truth of who I am and who I’m called to be! I took my lead from 2 Corinthians 10:5 tpt which says “we capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed On”. 

From there I went through a Mental Detox (a process I developed jus for us mommas), which helped me to identify, dismantle and replace every thought that needed to change. The way our minds are set up there is no way to experience a true Mommy MakeOver, going from overwhelm to overflow, creating the life you desire, without addressing your mommy mindset! 

We have to Actively and Intentionally disrupt the thinking that is out of alignment! Periodt. Ain’t nothing passive about it, sis!

So what have you been thinking momma! What have you allowed to become your truth? Does it serve you and who you want to be… as a mom, wife, in business? Are you finally ready to work on your mommy mindset?

Maybe you were like me, and you believed that you wouldn’t be able to do the things you truly desired to do, because you’re now a mom. Listen believe me, I get it. For me, it literally went just like that “I can’t… because I’m a mom”.  And although I didn’t say it out loud often, it was on repeat internally… and that’s the place where is matters the most. 

Girl, I know… too real! So what do you do?

You have to figure out “why”! Why are you telling yourself “I can’t”? Why do you believe that you can’t  have a bomb marriage, or create order in my home, or overcome feelings of overwhelm and mom  guilt? Why do you believe you have to sacrifice time with your family, or for yourself, to work on your business? Why are you struggling to believe it’s possible for you,  as a whole mom, to create harmony and flow in your life?

What limiting and fraudulent narratives have you adopted as your own, that are keeping you stuck? Seriously, take inventory!

Once you identify those limiting beliefs, it is imperative to go through the process of dismantling and replacing! What do you truly desire and what does God’s Word say? What are His true, praiseworthy promises over your life (Phil 4:8)? Who does God say that you are? Write this down and meditate on these things!

You are called!

You are capable!

You are chosen!

You are a bomb mom!

You are worthy of the life you desire!

As the word says, “keep your thoughts continually fixed” on these things (Phil 4:8 TPT)!

The Choice is yours!

I encourage you to spend some time with God, today! As you reflect on today’s verse and listen to today’s worship, what is God saying to you? How does this apply to your journey as a mom? Comment below, I’d  love to hear from you!

Day 1 “The Invitation” | The Mommy Devotional

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but God is saying “come to me”. He is inviting you to experience His peace, for He is “our oasis”! Lay your burdens, your mommy guilt, your stress, your overwhelm at His feet, allowed Him to refresh your life, and replace what you’ve been trying to control with His ways! 

I remember when I’d reached my breaking point!

I got completely overwhelmed. After unsuccessfully trying to rock my daughter to sleep for over 2 hours (one of my triggers), I gave my daughter to my husband, went into the bathroom, closed the door and fell to my knees…sobbing! You know that cry that comes from the pit of your inner most being? Lawd!

It wasn’t just the rocking of my daughter that got to me.  It was everything that was seemingly not working… all the projects I couldn’t complete, all the time I didn’t have, all the support I felt was lacking, all the talk without the results… I felt so defeated… as a mom, in my business, in life… it was painful.

I remember crying out to God like “This is too much”! I’m like, “why would You call me to be a mom for me to feel like this”?

What was I missing? I’m like, “God, If You don’t take over I’m not gonna make it”!!!

That was the moment I accepted the invitation! That was the moment I dropped it all off in His presence! That was my moment of surrender… truly and completely! I’d finally let go of control, and over the next few months got super intentional about joining my life with His!  

You may be thinking, “Reese, But how did you join your life with His”? Girl, simple! I Spent time with Him… EVERY DAY! I got up early, did my devotions, prayed, and ended with a 21 day mediation (which I still do today). I Spent time in His word. I Spent a whole lot of time in worship. I Spent time asking, knocking and receiving!

I stopped making spending time with God some big overwhelming “to-do”. It became a delight to spend time with Him! Sometimes I think we overcomplicate things, which I believe to be a distraction. God simply wants us to come to Him and spend time with Him, and as we do we’ll realize that He’s “gentle, and easy to please”!

Next, I took the time to learn His ways!  The mommy systems and strategies that I use and teach, aren’t just things I created, I truly believe they are divine! God showed me a blueprint (His ways), and each time I apply what He’s showed me… with every nudge to take action no matter how wild or small…it’s always spot on! 

In learning His ways, I had to unlearn my ways! Y’all… that process is…. ummm… yea!!! I’m still unlearning, and dismantling limiting beliefs;  cancelling everything that exalts itself against the knowledge of Who God says I am!!!! 

Momma what about you? Ever felt overwhelmed as a mom? Burnt out? How about mom guilt? Are you in need of REST? Yup, I know girl! I know you know!

I’m almost 99% sure that if you’re reading this you can totally relate! The question is will you accept the invitation to experience the oasis of God’s presence, exchanging your burden for His rest? The rest that brings peace, clarity…. direction! Whew!!!! Are you ready to join your life with His,  learn His ways, and allow Him to refresh your life? “For all that God requires of you will be pleasant and easy to bear”!

The Choice is yours!

I encourage you to spend some time with God, today! As you reflect on today’s verse and listen to today’s worship, what is God saying to you? How does this apply to your journey as a mom?
