Welcome back! The 5th Annual You Are Stronger Than You Think Women's Conference was at the beginning of this month.

Here are my 3 big takeaways:

  • One word or idea that came to heart in this planning process was my need for validation. God silenced that doubt.
  • I thought this would be our last year, but I believe we’re just getting started. All that we’ve learned has positioned us for what’s next.
  • My assignment is for the Christian woman in the marketplace.

Brandice Daniel at Stronger Than You Think Women's Conference

Our Keynote Speaker was Brandice Daniel, the founder of Harlem's Fashion Row. She shared her journey of growing her company for the last 11 years.  

Brandice's definition of a Cliff Jump?

"A cliff jump is taking an action towards your goal despite your qualifications, the fear you feel about how things will turn out, what people will say, your lack of confidence or the doubt you might have about your own worthiness."

************

What was your takeaway from this message?

Share your thoughts with us on Instagram @StrongHerMe .

Take Action:

(1) Join the S.T.R.O.N.G. Womanhood Growth Circle, a sisterhood of accountability for women ready to act courageously in their calling. Full details at StrongHerMeCoaching.com.

(2) For access to access to the remainder of Brandice's talk on what you do after the cliff jump + the other sessions from the event visit Patreon.com/StrongHerMe and become a tribe member.

 

(3) Through the StrongHerMe Facebook group I learned that several women in the community are writing books. For the month of April I'm  talking to different women making their living within the publishing industry. I plan to interview an editor, a writing coach and a published author.

I want the interview to reflect your burning questions. What is stopping you from starting or finishing your book? Where are you stuck in your book writing? What do you want to know about self publishing versus traditional publishing?

Share your questions by tagging us on instagram @StrongHerme or emailing me at Kendra@strongher.me and you may hear your question on one of the episodes in April.

Kendra Tillman

Today’s episode is apart of the Meet the Mentor series, your introduction to our event’s speaker-mentors. If you caught episode 42 of the podcast, you know I had planned on sharing an episode with Stephanie Clerge our strengths expert, but I didn’t like my energy in the podcast and we don’t have time to re-record it. Stephanie is brilliant and will be co-facilitating 2 very interactive sessions with me at the conference. You don’t want to miss it!

Instead I’m going to end the series a little differently. I was interviewed by Keiona of New GeeChee for her podcast. She’s allowing me to repost that interview here on the podcast. It’s probably the best interview I’ve ever done. Keiona or KeKe is a great interviewer. This interview will give you a great deal of insight into who I am, why I started this event and what you can expect. If you could use some laughter and encouragement in the form a conversation among friends from two different generations, this is the podcast episode for you. I share how the lessons learned in my 20s, 30s and now 40s has shaped me and uncovered the gifts that led me into my purpose!

I share most of the interview, but if you want to hear the interview in its entirety head over to @NewGeeChee Podcast on Apple and Spotify.

 

What was your takeaway from this episode?

Share your thoughts with us on Instagram @StrongHerMe or @NewGeeChee.

As we countdown to the 5th Annual You Are Stronger Than You Think Women’s Conference, we’re kicking off our Meet the Mentor series. The Meet the Mentor series is your introduction to our event’s speaker-mentors. This month I’ll be releasing 2 episodes a week, on Tues & Thurs. 6 different interviews to give you insight into what you can expect if you join us for the conference.

Min Evelyn Gaskin

Today’s episode guest is Min Evelyn Gaskin. Min Evelyn is our closing keynote. Min Evelyn is one of the wisest women I know. Not only is she accomplished... she simplifies leadership development by focusing on four critical areas – Servant Leadership, Courageous Leadership, Ethical Leadership and Effective Leadership. She’s a certified teacher, speaker, coach, published author and college instructor, Evelyn possesses over 30 years of leadership experience, including serving as a division vice president at one of the nation’s largest for-profit universities. She’s also a mom of 3. She’s going to help us balance our work and worship. The big question she’s helping us answer is how do we cultivate our relationship with God while leading others.

Instead of an interview, I share a clip of a sermon she preached in January 2019 on “Hungry for God” Her message was Part 5 in a series that was preached by our Pastor and church staff to help us set the year with God’s will as our priority.

Today’s episode guest is Pastor Erica Moore. Pastor Erica is a wife and mother of 4, an author, Co-Pastor and First Lady of my home church & the location of the 2019 conference, Faith Christian Center! In 2008, she founded the Woman2Woman Women’s ministry featuring the life changing Woman2Woman online book club. She also hosts regular live and online events designed to assist women in developing godly self perception and reach their full potential. Pastor Erica will be apart of the Happiness Habits panel discussion at the 2019 conference. She’ll be talking about ways we can build positive emotion in our life.

Instead of an interview I’ve included a clip of a sermon she preached on Mother’s Day 2018 on “Enjoying Your Life”. Her humanity shines through as she vulnerably shares how her hope was deferred during a discouraging season and how God strengthened her and helped her rise out of grief and disappointment with joy.

As we countdown to the 5th Annual YASTYT women’s conference, we’re kicking off our Meet the Mentor series. The Meet the Mentor series is your introduction to our event’s speaker-mentors. This month I’ll be releasing 2 episodes a week, on Tues & Thurs. 6 different interviews to give you insight into what you can expect if you join us for the conference.

Today’s episode is a real treat because I get to introduce you to a dear friend and one of our brilliant speaker-mentors. Malissa Davis is an expert Image Consultant, Fashion Stylist, and CEO of Best You Ever (B.Y.E.) she has found a way to seamlessly blend fashion, self-image, and personal branding. Before she moved away from Phoenix to Alabama to serve beside her husband, Pastor Damon Davis, in ministry she was my go-to stylist. 

Malissa is further along than I am on this parenting journey. I couldn’t think of 2 better people than she and her daughter Taylor to champion our teen girls in uncovering their true brilliance.

I intentionally kept this interview short and sweet. Malissa answers a few questions about the importance of us providing this safe space for our girls. If you’re attending with a teen girl, I believe you’ll quickly hear that your girl will be in great hands with this dynamic duo.

What was your takeaway from this episode? Are you following us on social media? You should be. We have a fun announcement you won’t want to miss next week.

You can follow us on Instagram @StrongHerMe and comment about today’s episode. Got questions for Malissa, comment at @malissa_bye on Instagram.

This month I’ll be releasing 2 episodes a week, on Tues & Thurs. 6 different interviews to give you insight into what you can expect if you join us for the conference.

In today’s episode I interview Brandice Daniel, founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row. Brandice is the CEO and Founder of Harlem's Fashion Row. HFR was founded in 2007 with the main focus being to provide a voice for multicultural designers; through a creative platform that enables these designers to sell and present their collections to key leaders within the fashion industry.

brandice daniel

My favorite thing about this interview is Brandice’s transparency. She pours herself out in this interview and gives us a peak behind the glamour of running a fashion business in New York. She’s been on her entrepreneurial journey for over a decade. I’m highlighting Brandice first for 2 reasons, she’s our featured keynote and because I believe her story epitomizes our core values of courage, confidence and consistency.

She is a woman of faith who is thriving in the fashion, arts and entertainment industry. I can’t wait for you to meet her! In this interview she is as transparent about her past and currents struggles. She shares the story behind her greatest business breakthrough and her ongoing success habits. 

What was your takeaway from this episode? What core values did it stir in you?

Week 1: The Secret to Finishing Strong When You’re Tired

Week 2: Your Year in Review

Week 3: 3 Truths to Help You Finish Any Year Strong!

Week 1 is episode 35. The secret to finishing strong is not necessarily pushing harder, but embracing the rest your soul needs. In this episode we discuss:

  • When we allow time for rest and recovery, it allows things to grow stronger.
  • How do we allow time for rest when there's still work to be done?
  • How do we slow down the pace of our lives to enjoy the holiday season?

What is the pace for how you plan to close out the year?

This week's episode is a clip from our lunch session. During lunch, Khalilah Elliott, one of our panelists and our facilitator lead our attendees through an interactive exercise, A Seat at the Table, that illuminates how women, in big and small ways, stop using our influence because of fear or because we're waiting for permission.

Khalilah Elliott is the originator of this interactive experience. She is also the Executive Producer and Chief Creative Officer for Kay’s Food for Thought (@kaysfoodforthought) – a lifestyle brand that promotes health and wellness for the mind, body and soul. An engaging public speaker and brand strategist she also recently joined Broadway’s Disney Theatrical Productions as Marketing Director after five years in the same role at the world-famous Apollo Theater in New York City.

 

This entire series is going to benefit you if...

  • you’re stuck and you aren’t moving forward with the plans you sense are from God, because you fear making mistakes or failing in front of others.
  • you struggle with identifying your strengths and how to use them to make a contribution to yourself, your family and others.
  • you need a plan of simple actions you can take to start dreaming and living again.

Over the course of the next 8 weeks I'll be sharing clips from the sessions at the 2018 You Are Stronger Than You Think Women's Event. "You Are Stronger Than You THink" is a lifestyle and leadership event for go-getter women and teen girls. Our yearly event is practical and inspirational. It's a leadership event with the soul of a Christian women's conference. We laugh. We cry, but we also provide incredible leadership advice for women and girls.

In this week's episode you will listen in on a dynamic session that speaks to women in all areas of leadership: Our signature #WorkYourPlan Purpose Panel

The You Are Stronger Than You Think Women's Event is part Christian women's conference, part business conference.

Our #WorkYourPlan Purpose Panel was a perfect illustration of this.

Our panelists were Khalilah Elliott of Disney Theatrical Group, Pamela Slim of Ke' Small Business Learning Lab, Evelyn Gaskin of Leadership Excellence Development Academy and Angela Sticca Snyder of Taxanista. The discussion was moderated by Isha Cogborn of Epiphany Institute.

The panel discussion was worth the price of admission.

I love the combination of practical and spiritual wisdom shared by all our panelists.

In this session we dive into...

  • why when we are given a seat at the table we must use our voice
  • answering the question: how do you get people to take you seriously in a new endeavor when you're known for trying multiple things?
  • what it means to say yes to the call of God on YOUR life
  • how to continue to trust God in the race of faith when life doesn't unfold in the way you expected and so much more...

This entire series is going to benefit you if...

  • you’re stuck and you aren’t moving forward with the plans you sense are from God, because you fear making mistakes or failing in front of others.
  • you struggle with identifying your strengths and how to use them to make a contribution to yourself, your family and others.
  • you need a plan of simple actions you can take to start dreaming and living again.

"Is preaching the Gospel sexy you bet it is?
Changing lives with the word of God...is sexy.

In 2018 I wanted to teach a simple framework that would help women begin to connect the dots of the different areas of their life to the greater story God was telling with their life. For lasting transformation you need an appreciation of how God has wired you and why it matters.

The message of "you are stronger than you think" came to the surface near the end of a season of anger, fear, shame, guilt, anxiety, resentment and disappointment. I realize now, only in hindsight, that I was grieving. I was grieving the loss of reputation and relationships and dreams that didn't unfold quite how I imagined. I felt like a victim in my own life. I wasn't a victim, but I was overwhelmed with self pity.

The Holy Spirit's response to my weak state, my state of begging to be rescued from the consequences of our costly mistakes: "my grace is sufficient. My strength is made perfect in weakness...I have plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. "

You are stronger than you think.

I first remember hearing "you are stronger than you think" in an aerobics class. Then, I would see it on the signs of the crowds who cheer runners on at races. It was repeatedly confirmed in scripture and I started to believe, again. When I started to thank God for who He is and His faithfulness in my life, I started to get my joy back. When I started to get my joy back, my strength was renewed and my confidence in the power of prayer and God's power to answer were restored. I was admonished and assured that I was not a victim. I want to remind you of the same thing:You are not a victim. You are victorious. You've made mistakes. You are still loved and valuable. God is for you. His grace is sufficient. He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. in Jesus name, Amen.

Listen to this brief excerpt from my talk at the event. Then, consider a trial in your life that has matured you and shaped how you view God and your life.  What lessons have you learned from that experience that might help someone else? Please, share your response with me on instagram or on the post on the blog:
