September is my birthday month so we are taking a little walk down memory lane. I’ll share how I grew from the inside out in each season of transition. We’re calling this series “My evolution as a woman”. As I share my truths, I hope it will ignite in you a desire to reflect over each season of transition in your life and anywhere you’ve been stagnant you’ll be re-energized.

In my 40s I’m navigating my identity as a woman. I feel like one of the best gifts I’ve given myself is to no longer look around waiting for permission or validation to step out in the things God is calling me to. To second guess myself, to doubt used to be my first response.

This week I share from my 20s. This is when I was navigating my new identities as a wife and a mom. So, learning to build our village wasn’t optional. It was a necessity. I believe our quality of life would have been diminished without the support of these people in our lives.

September is my birthday month so we are taking a little walk down memory lane. I’ll share how I grew from the inside out in each season of transition. We’re calling this series “My evolution as a woman”. As I share my truths, I hope it will ignite in you a desire to reflect over each season of transition in your life and anywhere you’ve been stagnant you’ll be re-energized.

This week I want to share from my late teen years. Our teen years are a time when we really have to begin discerning what’s right for us and what’s not; what’s going to take us in the direction we want to go and what will take us away from it. As I have evolved as a woman, I have learned to trust the nudges from God I feel in my soul. I’ve learned the more I trust, the quicker I’m willing to trust the next time.

How we learn to trust ourselves or follow our instincts:

It’s partially instinctual.

It’s partially wisdom gained from past experience.

It’s partially risking failure or disappointment.

Leadership and building a ministry or business requires resourcefulness. As leaders, we need a lot less than we think, when we use our creativity.

This month’s them came while writing the script for a previous episode. I started thinking about how I use some form of writing everyday in my business and the other skills I’ve had to acquire to be an entrepreneurial leader.

This week I want to talk about the tool of conflict resolution. Leadership is influence. We can’t be effective leaders, if we are unwilling or unprepared to confront, for the purpose of, working through the messiness of relationships.

"The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life" by Edith Eger

Edith Eger is a clinical psychologist and a Holocaust survivor. In the Gift she explains that the worst prison she experienced is not the prison that Nazis put her in but the one she created for herself, the prison within her own mind. She describes the twelve most pervasive imprisoning beliefs she has known—including fear, grief, anger, secrets, stress, guilt, shame, and avoidance—and the tools she has discovered to deal with these universal challenges. 

Accompanied by stories from Eger’s own life and the lives of her patients, this book

captures the vulnerability and common challenges we all face and provides encouragement and advice for breaking out of our personal prisons to find healing and enjoy life.

At the start of the July 4th weekend, the news broke that Sha'Carri Richardson, a track and field star, would be banned from competing in the 2021 Olympics because of marijuana use. People rushed to post and make comments on social media without knowing the full context of why she was banned. As we all know, false, misleading or incomplete information spreads like wildfire on social media. Like many things that get turned into sound bites and memes there's layers to her story.

how to cope with trauma and stress pt 2

According to Office of Minority Health at the U.S. Dept of Health & Human Services, National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month is observed each July to bring awareness to the unique struggles that racial and ethnic minority communities face regarding mental illness in the United States. Sha'Carri's story opens up a bigger conversation about mental health and how we help ourselves and our young people cope with their mental and emotional stressors.

This is Part 2 of a 2 part bonus episode of a conversation with a licensed therapist and two friends who have utilized therapy to heal from traumatic experiences.

If you missed Part 1, we encourage you to go back and listen before listening to this episode.

ep 89 workyourplan podcast

I usually share physical books, but I want to recommend some audio books this week. I love listening to books in the author’s voice. There is a true connection that is made when you hear someone’s words in their voice. I think one of the powerful elements of podcasting is you hearing my voice. Our voice tells a story. When you hear someone’s voice, you get a sense of their body language, you see their flaws which is always connecting, you get to absorb more of their personality, their history.

Episode 88 is inspired by personal experience from the last couple months.

workyourplan episode 88

In the last episode I mentioned experiencing a setback in business when I hired someone that I hoped would be helping me to be more consistent with sharing my content. I was triggered by that partnership not working out and I self doubt rose to the top. The way I was thinking about myself and business was hindering me and not helping me. 

This episode will remind you of the power of words and help you shift the words you are speaking to yourself.

This month we're discussing the power of words.

ep 87 workyourplan with kendra

My love and passion for words is one of the things that makes me, me. Inspiring, empowering, impactful words are on the walls in my home, on my bookshelves, in my phone and on my vision boards. I am very careful with my words, because words shape us! Our thoughts, hopes, dreams and goals have been influenced by the words used to describe us and how we have been talked to. Words can bring life or death. So, for the next few episodes, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite sources of wisdom aka books, songs, podcasts, etc 🙂

My hope is that these sources of wisdom will benefit you too.

Show Notes:

The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene' Brown

July #WorkYourPlan Book Club Selection:

"The Gift: 12 Lessons to Save Your Life" by Edith Eger

Edith Eger is a clinical psychologist and a Holocaust survivor. In the Gift she explains that the worst prison she experienced is not the prison that Nazis put her in but the one she created for herself, the prison within her own mind. She describes the twelve most pervasive imprisoning beliefs she has known—including fear, grief, anger, secrets, stress, guilt, shame, and avoidance—and the tools she has discovered to deal with these universal challenges. 

Accompanied by stories from Eger’s own life and the lives of her patients, this book

captures the vulnerability and common challenges we all face and provides encouragement and advice for breaking out of our personal prisons to find healing and enjoy life.

In episode 86 of the podcast, I share the recording of my conversation with the author of our March #WorkYourPlan book club selection, Jo Saxton.

Jo Saxton

Jo Saxton is an author, speaker, podcast host, and leadership coach. She has dedicated her career to growing leadership teams around the world and empowering women to find their purpose in their personal lives and in leadership.

Born in London to parents who immigrated from Nigeria, Jo credits her family’s unrelenting work ethic and the grace of God for the bold, tenacious approach she takes to sharing her wisdom on identity, influence, and living an authentic life. She is characterized by her effervescent honesty and warm approachability, leaving audiences with practical next steps in areas that are usually a bit ambiguous.

In addition to work as an author, Jo has also spearheaded an initiative aimed to help women grow their leadership skills. 

Jo lives in Minneapolis with her husband, Chris, and their two daughters.

Jo's book, Ready to Rise, is one of the few I've seen that addresses the intersection of your identity as a leader, a Black woman and a Christian and provides a Biblical context for talking about leadership and calling.

Have you ever dropped the ball? I want to invite you to join me for the #WorkYourPlan Book Club. For May I wanted a book that speaks to the pressure moms and women, in general, feel to do it all.

So, we are reading Tiffany Dufu’s book, Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less, as our May book selection. I often joke that this book should be in the marriage and family section of the book store, rather than the business section.

In Drop the Ball, Tiffany shows women how to cultivate the single skill they really need in order to thrive: the ability to let go. She recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others - freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home.

Did you know? Even though women are half the workforce, they still represent only 18 percent of the highest level leaders. The reasons are obvious: Just as women reach middle management, they are also starting families. Mounting responsibilities at work and home leave them with no bandwidth to do what will most lead to their success. Drop the Ball urges women to embrace imperfection and to expect less of themselves and more from others - only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.

I'm sure this topic is going to spark some lively discussions. Don't miss it!

ep 84 #workyourplan with kendra

To minimize the possibility of offense when engaging in a courageous conversation:

Pray in advance so that you have God's wisdom and his heart for the interaction.

State the facts first. Then share your story (how it impacted you; FYI your story is not a fact. It’s how you see it.)

Now switch to listening. Ask for their perspective.

Remember the reason/purpose for the conversation. Your goal is not to convince, compel or control. You want to move towards understanding and accountability.

Steps to move past comparison:

Return to the vision. You need a visual reminder.

Pray for discernment about what is a longing for something God wants for me and what is me coveting what was meant for someone else. 

Seek wise counsel from (friends, family, mentors, coaches) those who know what you’re feeling, they’ve navigated this road before and they can help you with your perspective. The answers to our desires often take on a different form than we expected.

Work your plan. Get busy with the work God is calling you to. Look for those people who run beside you to see it fulfilled.

March is Women’s History Month. I want to invite you to join me for the #WorkYourPlan Book Club. For the month of March we are reading Jo Saxton’s book, Ready to Rise.

Ready to Rise tackles the real-life issues women face–workplace harassment, sexism, low self-esteem, financial woes, power battles, and old wounds–while providing meaningful wisdom from Jo’s own journey to leadership. Added to this personal reflection are stories of empowered women from the Bible. Jo then calls on readers to invest in the next generation of women and build new communities where diverse female leadership can flourish.
