I would like to introduce you to my first {BE INSPIRED} blogger Tamarria , the writer of  a newly launch blog, “The Believing Woman” Tamarria and I went to high school together and reconnected again about four years ago when we were both pregnant with our baby boys and due around the same time! She and her family have been such a blessing to our life! Not only are we neighbors but we continually meet to discuss and talk about the everyday life of living as one of God’s created being…THE WOMAN:0) We talk for HOURS and HOURS some days and nights! lol! She was tugged  to start a blog to minister to other woman  and help lift them up and let them know HOW normal they really are! So take a moment to read about her and her blog!

How did you get started in blogging?
You of course! Lol. In all honesty, Destiny you are an inspiration in so many ways and blogging was one of the ways you inspired me. For me, blogging is an amazing opportunity to share with the world what GOD has put in my heart. It’s my prayer, that through blogging, I can give a little hope to a hopeless world. 

Tell us what your blog is about?
The Believing Woman entails the hearts of many women who are striving to do the will of GOD. It contains many stories written by real women covering everything from joy and pain and everything in between. This blog is written to encourage women, to let them know that they are not alone. Mistakes will be made and lessons will be learned. Life is sometimes a walk in the park and sometimes a walk in the desert, but GOD carries us through it all. 

How do you feel about being authentic when you blog and how has it  helped your blog so far?
For me, being authentic means not being perfect. No one can relate to a perfect person because no one is perfect. I know that there are many women out there who have experienced or is experiencing some of what I have or will experience. What’s in my heart is as authentic as it get’s and that’s what I put out there. Everyone wants someone they can relate to or someone who understands how they feel.

 
Tell us a little about the blog post ” The woman with the Alabaster Jar” and why you were inspired to write that post?
Wow, this is by far my favorite post yet. To even try and put into words what I was feeling when I wrote this is difficult. The story of the woman and her alabaster jar can be found in Luke 7: 36-50. She was considered a sinful woman who wasn’t “worthy” of JESUS’ love. Every woman, at some point in her life has been the woman with the alabaster jar. We have all looked for fulfillment in all the wrong places whether it was in some “one” or some “thing”, and we have all come up empty. With this post, I wanted to show women that true fulfillment comes from giving your heart to CHRIST. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, CHRIST has an unconditional love for you and HE wants you to lay all of your burdens on HIM. HE wants to fulfill you. There is nothing or no one in this world who will fulfill you like CHRIST. This is the message that I was trying to relay to my readers. 

This story was the first of the “Believing Women of the Bible” series that I am doing. With this series, I hope to bring the women of the bible to life so that women today can see and understand how much they relate to these women.

You went to Creative Estates without having a “crafty” blog, tell us about your experience and how did it still help your blog goals and ministry?

Lol, this is interesting. To be honest, at first, I felt out of place. I kept asking myself  “what am I doing here”? All of these women were so talented and creative and were able to relate to one another based off of their creativity. I think I was the only one with a Christian women blog. Awkward! Of course, with GOD being who HE is, I started meeting several believing women with amazing stories and testimonies!!!  We talked and shared and even cried as we spoke about what GOD has done in our lives! Even now, I am sooo thankful for the Creative Estates experience. It made me realize that what I’m doing is important and that there is a need for it. It was encouraging and inspiring. Women have a voice. A strong voice, and it’s time to share it with the world.

 
Any advice for novice bloggers like yourself?
“Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.” That about covers it :-)

 
Tell us three things that make you laugh, three things that are your guilty pleasure and three things that you can’t wait to do one day!

Laugh
*My husband (he has a great sense of humor <3)
*My friends (we can’t hang out if you can’t make me laugh)
*My children (it’s true, they really do say and do the darnest things)

Guilty Pleasure…oooh lala
*Food (and not the healthy kind either)
*Sweet tea (I’m drooling just thinking about it and if I know you, you are too. lol)

*Lifetime Movies (I’m a little embarrassed about this one…)

 
Can’t wait to do one day
*Finish decorating my home (I change things all the time so that might never happen)
*Meet CHRIST (it seemed fitting to put that one there…j/k it’s true. Relax people, it was a joke!)

*Learn to wait (I have terrible patience. I need to learn to wait)

Thank you so much Destiny for taking the time. You’re awesome!

Thank you T for letting us get to know YOU! The Believing Woman is sure to be soul food for many women!!

  2. Soooo I can’t stop blushing right now…lol! Destiny, this is awesome! I have little to say…I’m speechless. Thank you soooo much!

  3. Destiny, I think I am going to like following your Be Inspired series. I think it is absolutely awesome that Tamarria went ahead and went to Creative Estates without having a creative blog so to speak. Its hard as women going up against the norm that surrounds us and standing out as the amazing Christian women we are. This was definitely inspiring!

  4. Loved what Tamarria said about the woman with the alabaster jar. I’m going over there to follow right now!

  5. Amazing!! I love your blog…I am a follower. I will definitely head on over to “The Believing Woman” You inspire me so much! I have been blogging for awhile now and I just recently changed my interest to home decorating and making my home beautiful! I was so excited to find your blog and learn from you. I’m working on some projects right now and I can’t wait to post it so that you can let me know what you think! Come on by my blog for a little PEEK and subscribe! :-). Bug Hugs

  8. I am a newbie at blogging and found out about your blog through the Nate Show(which I love) I was in awe when I saw your home. It is so beautiful I looked you up asap. I loved your personality. And the more I see on your site the more I want to watch or see. You have a beautiful family with amazing friends around you (or online). I feel truly blessed to come across your blog and can not thank you as well as the wonderful women who are your friends (Destiny, Heather, Nicole)for sharing their amazing gifts,thoughts, and/or talent online. – DeSeana
