How to Be a Warrior Woman of Faith
As the years go by, I recognize how faith is the foundation of it all. On a daily basis, I lean more on faith than ever. This one thing I have come to know that the external is unpredictable, unknown, and uncontrollable. We all learned in 2020 while having a choice to be grateful too.
If you think for a second I am anything other than a prodigal daughter of God, you would be mistaken. My life is a transformation story of a lifetime still being written. The more I live, the more I am convinced of God answering prayers and miracles happening every moment. I personally witnessed two in last two days in Colombia alone with wealth and my iPhone being stolen (and returned) in less than 15 minutes). Stay tuned for my next blog + show episode with more on this!
If a few years ago, you would have told me I would be travel to 7 Continents in the middle of a global pandemic, I would have told you that is crazy!
It is only crazy until it happens though!
As if my daily life isn't enough to leave me in awe and wonder, the fact that I have divinely downloaded How to be a Warrior Woman of Faith astounds me.
Not a single area of my life is untouched with transformation from the inside out.
As I grew in my relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, there are times of faith, and works along with obedience, sacrifice, and discipline. This includes prayer, fasting, and my lifestyle. My first fast was the Daniel Fast in 2010. In 2013-2014, when I realized transformation is required to create a life and business you love, I transformed my eating and lifestyle losing over 55 lbs. and keeping it off.
Jesus said to them, “This sort cannot come out by anything except by fasting and by prayer.”
One of my fasts in 2021 included fasting and prayer in Guatemala on Easter.
I believe fasting has the power to shake darkness and unleash heaven on earth.

7 Steps to Be a Warrior Woman of Faith
In October 2020, I attended a Captivating Retreat based on the book Captivating by John and Stasi Eldredge. The four day retreat is life changing and impacting me in countless ways. As part of the experience, I received divine downloads of three phrases for my life from God including Limitless Wonder Woman, Mystical Maiden, and Warrior Woman.
In the months and the year of 2021 following the retreat, I started to increase awareness on what being and becoming a Warrior Woman means. The evolution of being a Warrior Woman starts from the inside out. As you increase your faith and works, the evidence of standing firm as a Warrior Woman reveals itself.
The journey of being and becoming a Warrior Woman never ends. Depending on the season of your life, you will experience these steps at different times or order. Your journey is your own. Embrace it.
As time goes on, these steps will overlap, compound, and multiply in your life.
The 7 Steps to Be a Warrior Woman includes:
1 Freedom Focus
In 2018, I started to feel compelled to receive a word for the year to focus on. This aligned to an incredible book I read, Get One Word. In 2018, my word was Faith. In 2019, Freedom. In 2020, Joy. In 2021, this shifted to a phrase "I am anchored in love." In 2022, this is I am perfectly present.
I share this practice and evolution because it has dramatically impacted my focus on freedom.
The focus on freedom especially escalated in 2019. You may imagine with a word like Freedom many things in my spirit, soul, mind and body elevated exponentially.
It is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Mark my words!
Freedom Fighting involves standing firm for freedom spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically, relationally, playfully, financially, It is eradicating beliefs and behaviors that indicate bondage. For example, when I transformed in any areas of life, this involved or involves transforming ways of thinking. When we transform ways of thinking (Romans 12:2), our actions will transform.
Whether this involved losing over 55 lbs. in 2013-2014 and keeping it off, choosing purity before marriage, shifting from corporate to calling, focusing on a journey of financial freedom, aligning relationships, and / or taking the leap of faith to travel full-time for a season, my mind transformed first to focus on freedom.

2 Vision Ahead
In 2015, I realized I stopped setting a vision for my life for over 10 years. I saw firsthand the real-life implications of Proverbs 29:18.
Where there is no vision, people perish.
I realized and repented for the lack of vision. I realized how it cost me in focusing on the external.
I allowed the opinions of culture to sway the decisions I made. At the same time, all of my past is redeemed and transformed to serve the present and future. I see evidence of the transformations every single day.
In 2015, I started to receive vision. I started to see clearly for my own life, love, business, and travel. Not only that, I started to take aligned actions to move towards vision. I am in awe and wonder of what has happened since 2015. 2022 Vision: a Year Ahead will give you a glimpse of life's upcoming attractions.

3 Offense Plan
A Warrior Woman does not leave herself wide open in a battle. Make no mistake, we are in a battle every single day in the unseen. Are you standing your ground? What is your plan of offense? In scripture, you will find extensive scriptures to help you with a plan of offense. Stand firm in your peace, power, passion, and purpose.
Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
Offense may be thought of in terms of the military, team and organization as well. The types of offensive operations include contact, attack, exploitation, and pursuit. This may be in any area of life.
Are you taking the action steps in a situation? Do you take the time to discern if you are called to attack in a circumstance? Are you being exploited in an area of your life? How about choosing to multiply opportunities limitlessly? Are you taking actions to pursue your purpose?
