Our guest for episode 58 of the podcast is Alexa Mason. Alexa is a wife, a mom of 2 preschoolers and one on the way and the owner of the Grace & Cherish ecommerce store where she provides beautiful art and home decor with a deep message. Their blog chronicles her family’s journey toward creating a home. It focuses on projects and decorating while sharing how they intentionally fostering a spirit of hospitality that starts in our home and spreads to our neighbors and greater community. Her podcast is a place to dive deeper into topics about life — faith, home, womanhood, race — it’s all there. Together, they serve as a guide in the discovery of the art of hospitality.

The Art of Hospitality Alexa Mason of Grace & Cherish

In this episode, we discuss hospitality in its many forms: washing the feet of the homeless, conversations around race, small groups, in the way we love our families. There will be things you’re probably already doing and things you probably wish you were doing better. We also talk about the origins of her ecommerce store, Grace & Cherish You’re going to like Alexa.She uses  words to explore hospitality in very creative ways – an etsy biz, her podcast. Her love for people and the gospel message is very real and tangible and inspiring. On IG @strongherme & @kendratillman I’ll share one of the beautiful prints she sent me.

Quotes:

“How can I sit with you in what you love and be present?” – Alexa Mason

“…within race, if there’s anything you take from conversations think about Christ and how he laid down the many privileges he had and he had many heavenly holy privileges and you have to do the same and if you aren’t willing to do that from the biblical standpoint of following Jesus…we just won’t get there. You have to have humility to do that.” – Alexa Mason

“Hospitality is the generous serving of others, considering them better than oneself. It incorporates both inviting in and going out, which is why hospitality is a lifestyle not limited to our homes.” – Alexa Mason

Our guest for episode 57 of the podcast is Nikki Boyd. Nikki Boyd is a professional organizer and social media influencer who shares tips on home organization, decor, and DIY projects. She’s also the author of Beautifully Organized: A Guide To Function And Style In Your Home. Traveling the world as a military spouse gave her the opportunity to gain a multitude of knowledge in how to run an efficient home filled with love and memories. Nikki’s philosophy is that your home should not only function for you and your family but should be your beautiful haven. She’s shared her tips in media outlets like Martha Stewart Living, First for Women Magazine, USA, Today Magazine, Ebony Magazine, The Washington Post, and CNN. 

Beautifully Organized Home Nikki Boyd

I highly recommend Nikki's book. Her beautiful home is featured throughout the book and I was surprised to learn she doesn’t have a background in interior design. She has some really great insight into how to make an organized home a lifestyle and not an event. She inspired me so much I spent the first half of my labor day organizing my kitchen. I’ve been taking baby steps to implement her recommendations and Morgan’s recommendations from last week’s episode.

In this episode, we discuss how Nikki’s military upbringing influenced her love of home, she answers common questions around how to minimize the overwhelm we feel. This is a very practical episode and I can’t wait for you to listen in.

Our guest for this BONUS episode is Felicia Davis of The Black Women's Collective. 

Impostor Syndrome Felicia Davis

Felicia is a bold, brilliant leader I’ve had the honor of getting to know over the last few years. Felicia started her career as an HR Assistant spending 20+ years in the trenches where she quickly rose up the ranks to become an HR Executive.

Her public speaking appearances educate, engage and inspire women to fully step into their power as leaders.

Felicia leads an organization called the Black Women’s Collective. She has a Facebook group that she uses to equip and encourage other women leaders. When she posted a resource she created around helping women combat impostor syndrome I knew I had to have her as a guest on the show. 

As you will hear in this episode, circumstances some might view as setbacks (major health challenges and her deeply introverted nature - there's a lot of tips in this episode for those of us with a more introverted nature) Felicia views as opportunities to be maximized for her growth.

Felicia Quotes:

"I learned how to fully leverage my introversion."

"I embrace my own pace."

"Your vibe is going to attract your tribe."

"Confidence is stepping boldly into who you're meant to be."

"Confidence builds when you get feedback."

"You have to have a new relationship with failure...sometimes your growth comes through making mistakes."

"It's not about perfection. It's about creating a space and a container where people feel heard, felt and seen."

"Show up how you want to go up."

In today’s episode I’m talking with 2 dynamic women that I can’t wait for you to meet. They are transparent and wise. They entrusted their stories to me, a woman they didn’t know the week before. We met through the Entrusted Women Facebook Group.

finding your voices as a wife podcast image

My guests are Jessica Collazo & Debra Cheeks. 

Jessica is a Chicago native with a heart that beats for Jesus. Her passion is to challenge women to think differently, gain a new perspective and live confidently. Because she knows, it’s possible. Jessica lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Jerry, two sons and dog, Sawyer.

Debra Cheek is the wife of John Cheek, and a mom of 7. She is passionate about family, and that passion is most seen in her love for marriages. Her desire to see God's people restore marriage to a place of honor has been channeled and grown through writing, as she published "The Believing Wife" in 2017, and through teaching bible studies, workshops, and seminars. In March of 2017, she founded Believing Wives Bible Study, a ministry designed to teach and train wives to fulfill God's original plan for their lives and in so doing change their homes, communities, and the nation.

In this episode we discussed:

  • The hardest thing about the first 5 years of marriage
  • God’s power to heal marriages even when there’s been adultery
  • Forgiving yourself & your spouse
  • The role of discipleship and accountability in helping your marriage thrive
  • How to respond when you’re husband doesn’t share your faith
  • How do you submit in marriage without losing your voice?

This episode feels like a marriage masterclass. So much to chew on and glean from this discussion.

workyourplan podcast with kendra finding your voice woman

Finding my voice has been about embracing the way I’m wired instead of thinking there was something wrong with me because of my southern accent, because of my acne prone skin, because I would prefer deep conversations to small talk, because I will attempt to read 3 books at once or because I would choose working out with you over chatting over coffee.

I have found my voice in little and small ways over the years. We’re going to use the word VOICE as our acronym for finding our voice:

V: List Your Values - Are they reflected in how you live your life?

O: Outcomes - How do you solve problems?

I: Inventory your strengths

C: Creativity - How do you express yourself?

E: Emotional intelligence 

Why does finding your voice matter? How does God help us in this process?

I’ve always been an avid reader. Every type of personality assessment I’ve ever taken points back to my love of learning. Books have always been my friends. I’m always looking for book suggestions, especially during the summer. To celebrate 50 episodes, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite books with you. I also created a free gift for you to go along with this episode. More about that later.

May 8, 2019

I’m Kendra Tillman your host and the founder of StrongHer.Me where we encourage and equip go-getter women act more courageously in their calling as a wife, mom and entrepreneur.

In general, May is a big month for moms. There’s Mother’s day and graduations. High school graduations, specifically, are big days in a mom’s life. I know because our oldest daughter is graduating this month. High school graduation is when our children take a major step in their journey of crossing from childhood into adulthood. Over this school year, I've spent a great deal of time reflecting on my journey with her. 

What I know to be true is engaged parenting requires emotional and physical energy.​ So much learning and impartation has happened, knowingly and unknowingly, in the last 17/18 years of our child's life. It's normal to feel inadequate.

"Did we do enough?"

"Should I have done that differently?"

"Will he/she be ok?"

"What kind of life will they have?" ​

"Will they seek out a relationship with God, when we aren't around?"

These are some of the nagging questions we all ask as parents and mentors. 

At this stage of parenting, it's easier to notice our faults and the do-over moments we wish we could have. I'm here to encourage you, no matter where you are in your mothering journey, God's grace is enough to cover all the ways we wished we had parented better. 

Even though I haven't done it perfectly, my heart is filled with gratitude and joy to have had the privilege to mother/mentor another human being for almost 18 years.​

In celebration of this new season, everything we publish @StrongHerMe this month is to awaken the promises God gave you years ago (possibly even before you became a parent or mentor) but have possibly gone dormant for various reasons.

 

One of the ways I stay present in this journey is by setting new goals. For a season of a few years I stopped setting goals, because I hated the feeling of setting a goal and not achieving it. After multiple missed attempts at achieving my goals I started to lose hope that what I imagined was possible. As I've gotten older, I've started to see goal setting differently than I did in early adulthood.

I started setting goals, once I realized the value in goal setting was not in the achievement alone, but in the transformation I experienced in the process.  I now view goal setting as a form of vision casting (in writing). The process helps me to ask myself daily, "what choices will I make, today, that my future self will thank me for later?"

Are you craving a similar shift in your thinking? Are you looking for a fellow mom and go getter to help you develop a plan to live more intentionally? I can equip you with the tools you need to set and achieve your most meaningful goals.​ This process I've learned over the years is how I've helped a diverse group of women reach their 5Ks, 10Ks and half marathon race goals. It's also helped me organize and execute a transformative yearly women's empowerment event since 2014. 

I believe you will see goals as tools you can use to not only strategize, but execute on using our gifts and abilities more effectively. Being specific is important to making progress in your life. Making sure your goals reflect your values is also important.​ There's one other element you may be overlooking that I want to share with you. 

Mark your calendars and join me next Tues, May 14th at 6pm MST for a FREE 45 minute online workshop on this process.​ 

Register today: StrongHerMe #WorkYourPlan Goal Setting Workshop.

Lauren Morgan

LaToya Thompson

LaToya is a professional editor and writer who has guided coaches, entrepreneurs, veterans, moms, corporate professionals, ministers, and soon YOU toward self-publishing a book. Her superpower is getting your book out of your head and onto the page. With 15 years of experience and a couple of degrees under her belt, she helps aspiring authors annihilate procrastination, fear, and excuses by motivating them to write well and write now by just writing.

In this episode we do a deep dive into self publishing: costs to expect and what to invest your money in, should you request reviewers to sign an NDA agreement, copyrighting your book title and we even discuss what do you do if you have a story to tell but writing isn’t your strength? Her response to that question was worth listening to the entire podcast.

Through the StrongHerMe Facebook group I learned that several women in the community are writing books. For the month of April I'm  interviewing women who are making their living within the publishing industry. I originally only planned on interviewing 3 women, but discovered a 4th. They all share a unique perspective. I thought it would be fun to ask a few friends who've written & published books to share their wisdom. Several of them have and I’ll be sharing clips from them on podcast and social media. You will be equipped and encouraged this month. Get your notepads ready. No more excuses!

On her personal site, TitaniaPaige.com, she helps women embrace passion and purity, so they can live out their God-given purpose. Join her Tuesdays for the latest episode of “The Purpose in Purity Podcast.”

Titania is Liberty University graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Counseling, as well as a First 5 app writer. Download the app, created by Proverbs 31 Ministries, to study God’s word with her during your quiet time.

In this episode we talk about remaining flexible in your calling, the multiple benefits of blogging, how a website freebie became the best product she’s ever made and how she acquired a book agent and her traditional publishing journey.

What was your takeaway from this message?

Quote: “I had to be very flexible with my calling and not married to it.”

Before you go…

The growth circle, and the tools provided like the workbook, will help silence the voice of self doubt long enough for the truth of how God sees you to penetrate your heart and mind. Transformation is a process and I will walk you through a framework for being more intentional in that process. As you walk with me and the women in the circle, you’ll become more confident in your womanhood, more courageous in your work and more consistent in your worship.

Full details at StrongHerMeCoaching.com. Our first session starts soon. I’m working on a video to answer questions you might have about the program. It will be posted at @StrongHerMe on IG this week. You can also email me at Kendra@StrongHer.me to schedule a call.

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 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 month’s theme is centered around reclaiming home.

Reclaiming home can feel like a monumental task when we approach it as an endless to-do list. Don’t underestimate the power of small things. How can we just get started, so we can start to see success in the small things?

In episode 34 of the StrongHerMe podcast, we talk with Krista Gilbert & Alex Kuykendall, who are wives, moms and published authors and speakers, share how they make time in small ways to honor their callings while reclaiming home. If you've ever wondered "how do I make room in my busy life for the calling that's burning on the inside of me?", this is the podcast episode for you!
