FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPTION:
Welcome to the spiritual gifts workshop. This is going to be so fun. So you guys know there's been all the personality tests, you know, they've been all the rage. Everybody wants to know what their personality is, and it's been this way for years and lately it's just become all the rage. Well, that's all good and fine. I think that we have to look at why we want to know what our personality says about us. And also we have to look at it from a biblical perspective, right? And not desire to know all about the little inner workings of who we are from a mind perspective, but from a biblical creation perspective. And that's why, instead of us looking at all the personality tests from the world that the world has come up with, why are we not just literally looking at the, the most basic, most incredible blessed personality?
Yeah. Giftings tests that there ever was was okay, which is your spiritual gifts. So I'm here. Are you guys here for that? Drop me a one. If you're like, I'm so here to find out what God has to say over me today. And I prayed over you guys this morning and I just, I pray that God would be here in and Holy spirit would be present with us and help me to just open this door for you, because this really is a conversation you're going to have with God. This is an inventory that you're going to do over your own spirit. And it's getting into the Bible and figuring out what God has to say to you over who he says that you are, because what God says that you are, my sweet friends is so much bigger, better, more fruitful, more amazing than what you could ever think that you are.
And it's really cool to kind of discover as I've, as I dug deeper into the spiritual gifts, work, finding out that over the past nine and a half years of being a full-time entrepreneur, I've already been operating in my spiritual gifts this whole time, even though I didn't really know that, but now that it's becoming more clear and, and I'm starting to get that insight and that revelation at a deeper level, it allows me to step into those spiritual gifts with more audacity, with more authority. And it's really, really fun. So I'm excited to walk you guys through this today. We're going through three days today. We're going to be talking about what spiritual gifts are we're talking about, who has spiritual gifts. We're talking about why we should desire spiritual gifts, how to use them for good. We're talking about why they're going to be uncomfortable as you start to really stretch in your giftings.
And then we're going to be doing some homework as well. So we'll probably be on here for 20 minutes today. You are going to have some that I'm going to have you do tonight. I'm going to have you reading from your spiritual gifts book from Peter Wagner guys, if you don't have the book, if it looks different than this, it's okay. They have different versions. And if you didn't get it, you can describe the Kindle version today. No, if you don't want to get the book, cool. Come along for the ride. I'm going to be reading you the scriptures and the verses to go check out things I'm referencing. So you can just go straight to the Bible and read those things as well. Cool. If y'all have your book drop me an emoji below in the chat and let me know that you got your book.
Okay. And then, Oh my goodness. The most exciting part of all, when we're done training today, I have a huge announcement for you guys. I'm not selling anything, nothing like that, but it is something so crazy. So big. It makes me want to bomb. It's a little much. I can't believe it. Don't worry. I'm not pregnant. I don't want you to be part of it. And I'm going to be giving away a free coaching, 30 minute coaching session as well. And you're going to find out how you can get entered to win the coaching session. It's super duper easy. And I just want to bring you guys along on this journey with me because I'm doing something big, something new, something scary, something that's uncomfortable. And it's a lot. And so I really want you to be part of this with me. So I'm going to be revealing that today at the end of the training.
So you're going to have to hold on with me. If you want to hear the news, I was excited to hear the news comment below. All right, let's go. Y'all a notebook and pen. I have a lot of gold for you. I have tons of notes that I'm going to be sharing. And then I reference from here and I referenced from the Bible. So those are, and I referenced from also my heart and Holy spirit to give you guys today's training. So let's start number one, let's start with what are spiritual gifts? What is that? What does that even mean? Okay. Some spiritual gift is, is something that every believer is given when they receive salvation. Okay. So if we look at Ephesians four, seven, it says Christ has generously divided out his gifts to us. So all of you who are believers who have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior, and you are walking in partnership with the Holy spirit, you have received spiritual gifts.
Isn't that news incredible. It's a gift. You don't have to fight for it. You don't have to battle for it. You don't have to go out there and apply for it. You already have it. Yes. And amen. Give me a yes name and in the chat. Now, your spiritual gift is gift or gifts. Plural are unique to each of us. We can get one. We promise probably have more than one. And what I've discovered about myself is as I grow spiritually, I uncover more spiritual gifts that I have, and it allows me to grow and stretch in different areas. So first Corinthians 12 says spiritual gifts are given to God's people by the Holy spirit for the common. Good. All right. And then verse two says, gifts are given according to God's sovereign will. So what I love so much about these two verses is number one, spiritual gifts are given to God's people by the Holy spirit.
It's a promise it's right there. So right here and now, right in this moment, no matter who you are, if you are saved, you have a spiritual gift. Woo. Super cool. Right? How special a gift is, something that we just opened up and we receive it. And we were just, we just receive it. I don't know. I just feel like we should say a quick prayer ladies. Let's let's just say a quick prayer over, over this training together, father, God, I just pray that you lift up these women right here and now, and you open their hearts to receiving this word. I pray that the spiritual giftings that you already have for them, they just are abundantly clear that they come forward and my girls' hearts and minds so that they can begin to walk in it. They can say yes. And I meant to receiving the gifts that you have for them that you've always had for them, that they courageously take action on moving forwards towards furthering the gifts so that you can foster these gifts and grow and blossom and anoint these women to walk and purpose, not just in their giftings, but to use their giftings for their callings.
We are so here for that today, father, we just pray that you would have a word for us and a heart shift for us and we trust you. And we love you. We have faith in you in Jesus name. Amen. Okay. I just felt like we should pray. Okay. So let's keep going. The next part, verse two says gifts are given according to God's sovereign will. So the gift that he has for you, it's been perfectly chosen just for you, based on who you are, based on how he created you. You were perfectly and wonderfully made. And so that gift or gifts that God has for you, they're just right for you. You don't have to worry. Well, I don't know, like, will I be able to fulfill this gift? Will I be able to operate in this gift and who am I? We don't get to play the, who am I game?
You don't get to play the enough game. You don't get to play the comparison game because nobody gets to wear your gift the way that you wear your gift, because it was created just for you. And God's decided that you get to get it. That's your present. Imagine you're sitting here right now and you're already prepared. You're already in this season of receiving and you just open your hands and you say, I'm super here for this gift father. Like whatever it is, whatever they are, be it one, be it many. I'm opening my hands and I'm receiving that gift from you. And give me the courage to unwrap the gift. Give me the focus to step into the gift. Even when I don't know the outcome, allow the gift to just take root in my spirit so that I can bless others with this gift.
So good right now, when we look at Ephesians four 12, it says given to prepare God's people for service and for building up the body of Christ. So why do we receive these gifts? Why are we receiving these gifts? We're not receiving these gifts for our own benefit. We're receiving just like Ephesians four 12 says we're we are receiving these gifts for service and to build up the body of Christ. So right now me, along with all of you, incredible women sitting here on this live, whether you're watching the replay, whether you're listening to this on my podcast at a future date, we are all together as a sisterhood. We are all together as a body of Christ. And so each one of us is given a unique and special gift according to God's will so that we can come together and work together for his kingdom.
Good. So we can serve that's what a gift is. So while we receive the gift, the gift is not for our own benefit, the gifts, the gifts we received, they really are for the benefit of others for the benefit of Christ. Okay. So let's talk about the difference between God's gifts and your calling. Y'all know I have, I do clarity work, right? I do clarity coaching with women, just like you. And we dig into what you were created for. And that is called, I believe your calling, your calling is something that you're meant to do here on earth. All right. And that's what I do. I have clarify your calling. I do clarity work like that's where I really focus. However, your gift supports the calling. Okay. Stay with me for a moment. So for example, I am called to help all of you rise up into your purpose to use your voice for impact using podcasting and to create a life that is not just serving other people and creating impact for blessing, for favor, for work, but also to operate as God created you as wives and mothers and stewards of his kingdom, to be able to give, to be able to serve, to be able to, to live a fruitful full life.
And so I'm teaching you guys boundaries, I'm teaching you guys God's way of building a business versus the world's way. I'm teaching you all of those things. That is my calling. How do I then do my calling? I do my calling by podcasting. I do my calling by planning and being super intentional. I do my calling by renewing my mind every single day with God morning routine partnered with him by spiritual, spiritually, growing, by having incredible spiritual friends and mentors that helped me in that right trust. And then I show up in a lot of uncomfortable awkwardness all the time. I'm really sweaty right now. Okay. Like none of this is comfortable. Let's just get that straight. So what I'm here to tell you is that your gifts will support the calling. So if my calling is this stuff, coaching, mentoring, teaching you guys, clarity, work, helping you rise into your calling, helping you do it God's way.
And then I have passive income products to support that, to give you the solutions. And I coach that's all my calling work well, what are my spiritual gifts? My spiritual gifts, according to this book and the Bible, after going through every single one, which tomorrow we're going through every single one of the, of the spiritual gifts, what they are. And we're going to do find yours tomorrow. But today we're laying that foundation for you laying that foundation for you. Mine are our leader on my little quiz. I got one, huh? A hundred percent like all the points that you can possibly get were for leader. Number one, number two for faith as my second spiritual gift and number three for teacher. And then it went on and on and on. But those three, like some of them were small. You got a few points. It's like math could be maybe.
And then some of them are a straight zero, you know? Like, I mean, and I'll share those with you tomorrow. But anyways, so when we look at my spiritual gifts, if I'm a leader, first I have faith. Second and third, I'm a teacher. Don't those gifts support my calling. What do you guys think? I'm kidding called to help you all rise into your purpose. Step out in faith, conquer the fear, say yes and amen to your calling doing it. Even when it doesn't make sense, saying yes, to being obedient to this, to the things that God is asking of you and to transfer belief into you and my spiritual gifts are Stephanie. Be a leader, have audacious faith and be a teacher. Oh my goodness. It's the perfect partnership. And that's why my life feels really fruitful right now because I'm not only operating in my calling.
I'm also operating in my gifts. So when you uncover your gifts, that the Bible has for you promise to you that you're ready and willing to receive, and then you move those gifts into your purpose, work into your calling and you begin to take action to use the gifts for his glory. Sorry. The flood Gates girl, flood Gates. If you're ready to experience the flood Gates in your calling work, by using your gifts to support it, draw me a flood Gates in the chat. Let's get it. Let's get it. You guys. Okay. So next up, what are the benefits of spiritual gifts? Let's talk about this. So when we look at worldly personality tests, y'all know what I'm talking about. Kay. They're all about you, right? They're all about you. Who are you? How do you operate? Oh, well I don't do that. Cause I'm a, you know, I'm a two.
I don't do that. Cause that's like, they're so selfish. They're so self constraining. They're such an identifier. There's such a limit on who God created you to be. None of us, none of us are the same. None of us are a number. None of you are a color. None of you are any of those things each and every one of you, sweet friends are a daughter of the King who is called for more. I don't care. How big or small you think your purpose is? It is perfectly sized for the kingdom. You are a perfect position in the puzzle of all of us in all of us. No one's gift is bigger or better than anyone else's gift. And you are not constrained by personality test that the world has out there that they are. That is no, that is not your truth. That is not your truth.
Your truth is who God says you are. And none of you are going to have the exact same truth spoken over you. Each of you are uniquely, beautifully different and wonderfully wonderfully made. So why is this a benefit? This is a benefit because it makes you a better Christian when you are operating in what you're supposed to be doing. Instead of looking at everyone else saying why should just do what she does. Not all of you are meant to lead at this capacity and that's okay. Not all of us are meant to have the gift of hospitality. You know, like if you look at my mom, she's like, Oh, she is anointed in the gift of hospitality. And I'm over here. Like you want some chips handing people a bag of chips, right? Like I'm not that great at evangelism either. Like I get real weird.
So we don't all have the same giftings. And I think that's what makes it so beautiful. You are not a number. You are not a color. You are not initials. All right, let's look at that straight. What is another benefit of spiritual gifts? Your self-esteem I can tell you that when I am operating in my gifting right now, I'm operating in my gifting. Right? I'm using my gifts and my calling work right here right now. And I'm partner with Holy spirit in this right here, right now, all three things working together. Holy spirit giftings and calling work, purpose work. And all of you are here learning from me hanging out with, and so this, this gives me a bigger feeling of worthiness because I'm fulfilling what God has in store for me. So you begin to fulfill what he's asking of you, which gives you this immense feeling of purpose of wholeness, of worthiness, of healing.
Oh, it's so good. I want this for you and you can have it. The next thing is that you get to be a part of something bigger than you. Okay. When you wear a personality test badge, are you wearing something bigger than you? Actually, I think you are digressing into a little hole of aloneness. Okay. Going, Oh, well. Hm. Like for me, I'd be like, Oh geez, well, I'm a three. If we were to talk about it, right. I'm a three. And by the way, I no longer support using this test. I'm just going to put it out there. I'm a three. So that means, you know, I just, I only, I only operate for work. Like that's all I'm good at like, sorry. And that's just, that's a me thing. It's all about me. And it's actually highlighting my weaknesses. And I say no.
And I declare and decree over my own life that I am not enough Amber. And that you are not a number and that I am something bigger than me and that I have not just my work and that I am an amazing mom and I am a great wife and I can steward friendships. And I have an open giving heart. I decree that over myself, right. Because I am not what someone else says that I am. I am what Jesus Christ says that I am a, what Holy spirit moves me to be and do every single day. And so are you, so let's just let all of those beliefs about ourselves wash away right here and now. Okay. And allow our biblical spiritual gifts to be the one. One of the ways that we fulfill our purposes, also identifying our calling work and then finally praying and allowing God to just work through us, to bring this stuff to light.
Is this making sense? You guys drop it. We have two in the chat. If you are still with me right now. Cause we still got some work to do. Guys, let's move on first, Peter four one says that in all things, God may be glorified through Jesus Christ to whom belongs in the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. Then. So what does this verse mean? It means that the number one way that we should, should be focusing and we should be living as kingdom entrepreneurs is to glorify. End of story. So, yeah, as we, as we do things every single day, my question to myself is, is this glorifying God right now that's the question. And when we, we operate in our spiritual gifts, we are glorifying God, because from him, it's the calling work. It's the purpose work. So gifts are to be used.
That's what I discerned from all of this right now. I take from this book from the Bible itself, from looking at all this stuff, scriptures from my own life that your spiritual gifts are not just to be received, but they're to be used. They're to be, they are to be grown. Okay. We have to step out in faith, stretch our gifts. I want you guys to imagine you received the little present, right? You received a little gift and you're like, like I'm a spiritual gift and you open the gift and inside is this tiny little seed, right? Like imagine a little mustard seed. You're staring at that thing. You're like, great. This is awesome. My gift is so tiny and I'm afraid of it. Okay. Cause gifts are uncomfortable. You know? So when you're looking at that little tiny seed, you're like, Oh man, if I water this thing in my grow.
So if I plant this and I, till that soil and I planted and I speak to that little plant and I water it, I put some miracle grow over there and I place it next to its friends in direct sunlight. It's going to grow. That is terrifying. Isn't it? Isn't it uncomfortable to know that your little spiritual gift is going to blossom. It's so terrifying it to me. I remember it was like a year ago and I was in the shower. Cause y'all know my shower time is my time of Jesus. I'm over there. Like praying, writing down some revelation on my note pad and the shower. And I'm like, okay Lord God. I think I want my spiritual gifts to become more clear, more abundantly, clear. I want to go growing my gifts kind of.
I was like solid, afraid to claim it. And that was one short year ago. But y'all let me tell you what, when you push past the discomfort of growing in your gifts, he will equip you. He will equip you. Kay. There is nothing that you are not prepared for, that you have been called for. Right. Have you heard that famous saying, and it's like, God does not qualify. God does not qualify the call. What does it? He does not call the qualified. He qualifies the call. That thing. Yeah. That thing. I mean, that's everything right there. Like if you say yes and amen to this, you are qualified and then you are, God will pour in that. God-Sized confidence that strength into you to foster the gift. So two times Paul tells us twice in the Bible to earnestly desire our gifts. This is Corinthians 1231 and Corinthians 14 one earnestly desire them.
So we have got to get our humanness out of the way and open up to receiving because it can be intimidating. It can be strange. Some of the gifts are a little strange when you look at from a worldly perspective, okay. And they can't be, can be dangerous if you are not using them in the right way or you are not stewarding them correctly. And so it's, you're sometimes we're afraid of saying to our gifts. Sometimes I have friends and mentors who have just shelved their gifts completely. Cause they're like, I don't know. Is that from God? Is that from the enemy? I'm not sure. But let me tell you something. When you are partnered with God in this and you are a true believer and you really earnestly desire to have that gift bestowed upon you and you are working for the good of him and not for the good of yourself, that gift is way too big for you to shelf because it's so important.
You are a piece of this puzzle and God's purposes for each of us. It's far too great for us to say yes to fear and no to faith, right? Your faith. It has to be bigger, more audacious than your fear. We have to smash fear. We have to say no to fear. Fear doesn't have a place here now will fear creeping. Absolutely. Sisters fear got me big time this last week. So big, because I'm about to tell you guys something crazy big that I am doing. And I was, I am afraid. And the enemy crept in and it was like, he was just throwing distraction, darts at me. And he was throwing overwhelm at me. And I was, I was accepting it I'm I was accepting my own. This fear, this overwhelm, this, this not enoughness. This does God really got me. Does God really have my kids?
Does he really have this me I'm over here doing the same thing that you guys do. Okay. But we have to say no. And thank goodness that I have chosen God's way. And his will because when I yesterday was in the inbox with some godly mentors, I was praying. I was listening to a podcast of somebody that I, that blesses me. And that just that piece, that restoration just washed over me. And God's got me. He is my savior. He is my Lord. He is my father, my counselor. He is everything. He is the, I am, I, I don't need to have this. He's got it. So the fear has got to go and yes, you're going to face it, but you have the power to overcome it. Yes. And amen. So gifts are not for our glory, which I've already said, but I'm just going to say one more time.
It is for his glory and leading others to his faith. So let's wrap this up. Then. I'm going to tell you guys how you can win free coaching, what your homework is for tonight and the huge announcement that I have for you. I'm so excited to share you guys so excited to know the big announcement. Okay? So here's how we're going to begin this process. The very first thing I want you to do before you open this book, before you start pinging people about spiritual gifts is you got to get quiet, quiet, and you have to open up to hear from Holy spirit on this. You have to pray. And it's as simple as something like this. You know, father, God, I just pray that you would open me up to a revelation over my spiritual gifts, shut the doors of anything that is not from you and open the doors to my giftings that you have for my life, my heart, my purpose, the reason I am here, what you created me for from birth, the plans you have for my life are bigger and better than my plans.
And I pray for that revelation to come in, show me my spiritual giftings, and then give me the mindset, the spirit and the heart to do this work for your good, not for my good allow me to grow and allow. And I give you permission to mold me into your daughter, into the work that you have for me, so that you, so that I can walk in the footsteps that you have laid before me, less of me and more of you. Yes and amen in Jesus name. Okay. So an easy prayer, just to open the doors, to ask God, to partner with you in this process. Okay. That's number one. Number two is to get into the Bible, get into the bah. We cannot ever take someone else's word for anything. And I'm not saying to be suspicious because that was also me. Last week, I was being super suspicious of all the things.
There's a difference between discernment and suspicion. Let it go. God will reveal. Right? But so what I did is after I read this, I went to every single verse that Peter Wagner said, and I did my own research and I did absolutely find the same spiritual gifts that he found. And I prayed over it. And I was in a full agreement with my own gifts based on the test. So I felt good about that. But you guys cannot take my word for this. You have to do your own heart, work, your own discerning. And you should be doing that over everyone that you listened to pray over it. You guys, I will pick up a book of something that someone else recommended to me that they trust that spiritual mentor. And I'll just pray over. I'll place my hand over the book. I'm like, father, if you don't want me to read this, just please let me know.
And there have been two books that I got a resounding no, and I just threw them away because I didn't know if I should be putting them in anyone else's hands. So just pray over stuff. Y'all like, God will, will show you. He will reveal to you. Number two now, or sorry. Number three. So number one is pray. Number two is get into the Bible. Number three is to follow sound, teachings and counsel. There is a lot going on right now in the world. There is a lot going on and the lines are very blurry. The lines are very blurry, right? So you have to be careful that you are following sound counsel and that you have godly mentors. So what do you do? How do you, how do you know? Well, guys, you pray over it, ask God to reveal you any false truths.
And when you get them, you best be obedient, right? Like period. End of story. I used to totally use the Enneagram in my coaching. I would ask people what their number was. And I was super I got really defensive when people would ask like, well, how can you use that? Anyway, you got to do your own research on that. By the way, God will show you your own way. But for me, I no longer support that because when I finally did hand it over to the Lord and pray over that and research where it came from and all the things I decided that I no longer was going to steward that. And I was no longer going to be a part of that. And instead that I was going to use spiritual gifts and I was going to use prayer and I was just going to look at another human being and say, who does God say you are?
And that, that was going to be, that was gonna be, be the answer for me. So you have to do your own work there, but be, be mindful, be careful. Don't just say yes to stuff. You guys, because someone else is saying yes to something, go to the Bible and look also, you know, you have to ask these questions like, well, somebody is telling me to do blank and they're a spiritual guy. Cool. Find it in the Bible. I'm always yeah. Asking that question. Oh, I love that idea. Where is it in the Bible? If you don't find it in the Bible and God has not revealed it to you, should you be following that? Should you be doing those things? And that's always my answer. If I don't find it myself, I'm not going to partake. That's just me. You guys do you there.
Okay. And then number four, the fourth tip is to say step out, we are going to be working in our giftings and it's going when it feels scary, it's going to feel uncomfortable. But if we don't step out in it, if we don't water the seed, right? We have our little seed here. If we don't water it, plant it, foster it weed, the weed that garden, the, the giftings aren't going to grow. So that means you have to step out in your own fear in your awkwardness, in your messiness, in your unsure, in all of it and rise into your purpose. Okay? Gift is definitely partnered with your purpose. Your gifts are absolutely partnered with your calling. All right. Three questions for your homework. And then I'm going to share the big announcement with you. Okay? Question number one, question number one. Right? Write these down.
Y'all and this is going to be your homework that I want you to post it. Question number one. What would it feel like? What would it feel like to walk in your unique authority and embody gifts from the one and only what would it feel like to walk in your unique authority and embody gifts from the one and only I want you, I want you to journal over that question. Just let it flow. Okay. That's question one. And my girls will post the questions below. Number two. What is your experience or perception? Been of spiritual gifts. That's number two. Just do some journaling over that. And now how is it different after today's call? What is your experience? Number two or perception of spiritual gifts? Yes. And what, how has it changed since this call? Okay. Number three, homework. Number three. I want you to pray and ask God to reveal your gifts to you so you can begin developing them.
I want you to pray and ask God to reveal your gifts so you can begin developing them. That's number three, homework. Number three. Finally, I want you to read chapter one and two of your book. Okay. Chapter one and chapter two. And these are short. Okay. So you're going to read it in 10 minutes. Chapter one is the fast track to discovering your spiritual gifts. And chapter two is being everything that God wants you to be. So you're going to read these two chapters tomorrow. We are going into the actual gifts tomorrow. I'm walking you guys through what are the spiritual gifts? All 28 types. We're talking about classifications. We're talking about how you discover yours. We are talking about how to evaluate, if your gifts are working in your life, I've got homework for you. You're going to do the questionnaire tomorrow. Yes. And then on Friday and tomorrow and Friday are at 12 o'clock mountain standard, by the way, not nine.
Okay. Now tomorrow or Friday, we're going to then talk about what do we do with our guests? How do we, how do we actually put them into practice tangibly, tactically in our lives, no matter what, no matter what you're doing, you're like, Oh man, I'm a nurse. And my spiritual gift is evangelism sweet. Actually. That is super perfect. But let's say you're a Baker and your spirit, your like your spiritual gift is, I don't know, leadership or something. Like you can always utilize your gifts in what you do. So we're going to talk about that on Friday. Okay. Y'all ready for the beginning.
Drop me an I'm ready. All right, let's go. So you guys, two and a half years ago, I got a rebel. I had a dream to start a podcast. At that time, I had a Facebook group called mompreneur mastermind. Cool. I didn't pick that for any reason. Other than I thought it was a trendy word. I a was helping network marketers when I first started in 2016, this journey. And so I thought mompreneur was an awesome name for that. Cool. And it is, and it was, and it's fine. And but something wasn't sitting with me over the past year and I just kept praying, am I, is this it is this right? And I'll tell you something super cool. As we went down the trademark road about about, I don't know, six months a year ago. And we tried to trademark mompreneur mastermind and we discovered that we couldn't trademark it because it's a descriptive because mompreneurs too widely have a term, blah, blah, blah.
And I was like, well, okay, we'll just trademark Stephanie gas. It's fine. And that'll cover everything. So trademarks that. And I kept wondering, I'm like, is this it? Then I started to get clients who would come in and they'd hire me for coaching. And they they'd apologize. They're like, Steph, I'm so sorry. I'm not your Lola. I'm not a mom. I'm not a mom. Or I'm not a mompreneur, I'm 50, I'm an empty nester. I'm a guy I'm a, not a mom. I'm single, I'm 20. Like the audience was expanding. And I felt this unrest in my heart about having a name that made people feel like I wasn't for them. It was so perfect to start there because it was a micro niche. And I highly recommend that you guys start with a micro niche 100%. Absolutely. But as you grow, your brand will grow.
So, and I'm going to share this whole big story on the podcast on Monday the eighth. So I'm not going to go too deep into it right now, but I'm just going to tell you that I got word from God and it was like, it's time, it's time. And I kept having visions of blue. I kept having visions of turquoise and gold and purple and I would open the Bible and there would be blue, purple and gold in the same verse on the same page. And I would circle it and I would send it to my, my friends and my mentors and be like, God speaking to me, it's time.
Like, Oh my gosh, it's time.
And so the colors were given to me, which are blue, turquoise purple and gold. And they just to me represent heaven and they represent, you know, the skies above and I've always loved the water. The water to me is like, Oh, it's peace. It's I'm. So water person represents that. And I would go, I would open the, the Hebrew calendar and I'd go to my birthday month. And it would say your color is blue. And I would be like, Oh my gosh. So I, I wrote it down. I'm like, here we go. And so God bless the colors. So we got some new colors coming your way, and God blessed the rebrand of the podcast. So on Monday the eighth, you will see a brand new podcast. You will see a brand new name. You will see a brand new branding. We're not going to be done.
God bless Allie. She's on this slide right now. Poor Allie. Y'all I am, I am awesome to work with, but I am not a visual person. So I'm like, Allie, I don't know what I want until I see it. And so poor thing she's like, do you like this? I'm like, no, do you like this? I don't know. Do you like, y'all say a prayer for Allie because she's got her work cut out for her. So we've got a brand new podcast coming to you. It's coming on the eighth. It is coming out. I am so excited. I am so here for this God's hand has been on this process.
