EPISODE 16 | WHO CARES

Why do you care so much about what other people think about you? Being concerned about what other people think about you will have you living like you have multiple personalities. You make people gods in your life. They rule over you and sometimes even own you. Your life doesn't belong to them so their thoughts and opinions about you shouldn't matter. If what people think about you doesn't line up with what what said, it's irrelevant. It's times to refocus your attention from your "haters" and back to God where it belongs. Because remember, what other people think about you isn't your business. LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 15 | RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF

Worry about yourself isn't just a phrase used in petty or snippy moments. It's a truth that needs to be followed by a lot of people. We spend way too much time concerned with what other people are or aren't doing. The only person you are responsible for is you. God created you to live your best life, be obedient to Him, fulfill your purpose and be a good steward over the life He gave you. You don't have time to focus on other people. You don't have time to try to be responsible for other whole adults that are responsible for themselves. You're responsible for your responses, your actions, and your thoughts. You have too much to do to be concerned with other people so really, worry about yourself. LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 14 | WATCH YOUR MOUTH

Life and death are in the power of the tongue. What you say matters and it leaves an impact on those around you. The Passion Translation says, “Your words are so powerful that they will kill or give life, and the talkative person will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21  Join Santresa Marie as she shares why yours matter, how words shape your character, and gives you steps on how to watch your mouth. You don't have to worry about regretting it if you don't say it. LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 13 | FACE THE FEAR

2019 is here and it's all about accountability. You can't reach any goal unless you're willing to be accountable and do the work. Santresa Marie starts the 2019 season talking about fear and how to overcome it. Fear will paralyze you, cause you to doubt, make you feel inferior and keep you from trusting God. Fear only has the power you give it. Stop running, stop avoiding, and face the fear. There are steps to facing your fear and if you're willing to take the journey, you will discover that fear doesn't have any rights to your life. “God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mind” 2 Timothy 1:7 LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 12 | THE LIES YOU TELL

How many lies has the enemy told you in your life that have impacted the way you live and love? How many lies have you believed even when your intellect told you it was a lie? It's time to detach every lie the enemy has ever told you and grab hold to the truth and goodness of God. It's been a while and I've missed y'all but this is the last podcast for 2018 (unless God says something different) and I'm excited to share it with you. I'm telling you it's been once heck of a ride since I began in August and I cannot wait to see what December and 2019 has in store for me and for you. So, when the enemy tries to tell you a lie, say that's not what Jesus is saying and begin to say what God has said. It's a part of the pruning process but it's necessary to truly believe and receive everything that God says and has for us. LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 11 | LEVEL UP

You can stand in one spot or you can go to the next level but you can't do both. Moving forward is only scary when you're focused on you instead of focusing on the one that has you. I shifted and made the decision to focus on God and level up and in less than a week my life has been in rapid fire. LISTEN HERE

EPISODE 10 | OUT WITH THE OLD

I found myself standing in my closet looking at all the clothes that no longer fit me. See, I've lost weight and stepped into the real, authentic me all at the same time. Some clothes are too big while others just don't fit who I am. I didn't know why I still had a lot of the clothes because they were too big a long time ago. Then I heard God say, "How do you expect to receive new clothes when the old ones are taking up all the space in your closet." It hit me that that's how we live our lives. We spend time allowing old stuff (clothes, relationships, jobs, etc.)to take up space in our lives and wonder why we aren't receiving the newness that we desire and deserve. It's time to clean house and get rid of the old. There's new waiting and it just needs a place to be able to rest. LISTEN HERE

I made it y'all! Look what God did! The last episode of the ACL series and I'm so excited. This part of the journey has come to an end and in His perfect fashion, God made the peeling off of my remaining masks the sweetest experience ever. I'm here because I made the decision to be obedient and take the journey to me. LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 7 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: PRIDE, SELFLESSNESS AND OTHER STUFF

When pride disguises itself as other stuff, you don't realize you have an issue until you're face to face with it. Pride can look like selflessness. Selflessness can lead to self destruction. The other stuff tends to be wrapped up in everything else. LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 6 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: BIG GIRLS DO CRY

It's a dangerous misconception to believe that it's not okay to cry. Who told you it was a weakness? LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 5 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: PERSONAL PROTECTION

Self protection can seem like it's beneficial but it's actually more harmful than you realize. Releasing this mask has been rough but the freedom attached to it is worth it. LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 4 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: MEAN GIRL

When you make the choice to be mean for protection, you run the risk of shutting out those that love and support you most. I let go of the mean girl mask so the softer side could shine through. It's better over here. LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 3 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: THE FORGIVENESS FACTOR

You can choose not to forgive or you can choose to be free but you can't do both. Choosing forgiveness is for you and you alone. LISTEN HERE


EPISODE 2 | THE AUTHENTIC CHIC LOADING SERIES: THE FEMININITY AND WEIGHTS

It's exhausting trying to carry your weight and the weights of others. It's exhausting trying to deny a part of you that needs to shine. Embracing my femininity and releasing the weights. LISTEN HERE
