I was talking on the phone last night to a mentor and mother of the faith who said these words to me, "the accuser is not the author of your life story and legacy!” boy did i need to be reminded of this truth! i realized over the last month, once again, just how easy it is to entertain a thought for too long, until it becomes a viable option and in turn threatens to derail my life. it was only when i confessed out loud, the sneaky whispers that the enemy had planted in my mind, that i had willingly entertained, and actually considered, that the turnaround came. thoughts that start small and grow into a plausible reality… the moment it came into the light, it was robbed of it’s power. i don’t know who needs to hear this today, but the accuser does not get to derail you, destroy you or take you out. you can change your legacy as you continue to live a life enfolded in the arms of jesus. he will never leave you, forsake you, accuse you or lie to you. trust him. .

“this is not a subway read...” on of my fave comments about the #sheisfreebook thus far. you’re going to want to be in a safe space to dig in... “it’s impossible to read without digging deep and getting hungry for more...” take this book with you into the quiet places and spaces of your life, choose to go there and walk in freedom. #freetosetothersfree #freedom @sheisfreenyc (link in profile to grab your copy ⬆️👆🏽👍🏼)

Don’t lose heart. the enemy does not get to take your harvest. keep sowing, keep going, keep giving, keep standing, keep praying, keep loving, keep worshiping, keep resting, and whatever you do, keep partnering with true love, because it is the very being of god. consciously break all agreements with fear - it does not get to dictate your destiny - period. .

This week has been moving week for @phillipattmore and i and, as i sit in our new apartment, i am completely overwhelmed by how well our friends have loved and supported us into our new family home 🏡 .
today, our community stepped up to the plate big time, moving all our belongings, deep cleaning our new place and helping to decorate. pouring out their saturday off to love and serve us 😭
there aren't enough words to communicate just how much this means to us. thank you to everyone who made this possible. i love you with all my heart. you are family ❤️

It was such an honour to recently be a part of @libertychurchny short film for vision sunday entitled “one”.
- - -
oh, how much more than ever before, do we need to hear stories that unify, that are real and vulnerable, that see others as an extension of ourselves, that call us all to love more, that release hope?
- - -
there’s a link in my bio where you can watch the video in full, and hear how the simple decision to see and love the ‘one’ in front of you can bring complete transformation.
- - -
every story you hear is an invitation to do it again. all we have to do is partner with it.

You might be able to accomplish your goals without any support, community or accountability - and if that works for you - that’s great if you’re good with where you’re at. .
.
but man, you are missing out!!!
.
.
we weren’t made to progress through life alone, y’all.
we were made to encourage and lift others up.
we were made to be encouraged and to be picked up, carried and held when we fall.
we were made to be inspired and inspire others.
to cry with those who fall and fail and celebrate when they succeed.
.
.
we need each other to thrive, to go farther than we ever could imagine, to experience more depth and richness in life than otherwise. .
.
it may not be something you think you need, but what if it is?!

When i stepped out to serve i saw god....he taught me what it meant to die to myself and surrender to him. he showed me that trusting him means having faith and believing that he makes the impossible possible.⁠

"as i stepped out to serve, i saw god actively taking care of those he calls to serve. whenever we prayed, god was faithful to answer in his timing, when we asked god to prepare hearts of people on outreach, he soften hardened hearts even before we met people and i even saw god give me and my team not only words, answered prayers and revelation, but strength to face each day.⁠

It's our desire that every person in our church thrives in community. community groups are the best way to do that. groups meet at all different times on a range of topics... there's definitely one for you! get more information and sign up in the lounge area at some point during the service on sunday. #thriveincommunity #communitygroups #manzini

@hernandezcphotography you are an artist!
we had the most beautiful time yesterday walking through central park and having our dear friend @hernandezcd snap such epic maternity shots.
on our way home, we then all heard the news of @kobebryant ‘s passing and, in light of such tragic news, i all the more celebrate the life of our son and the family that is expanding here. life is so precious and i am yet again brought to a place of gratitude for it. .

What we're reading this month:⠀
ready for a book that inspires an immediate sigh of relief and helps you feel better about yourself? if so, check out drop the ball by tiffany dufu. back in 2017, author @tdufu wrote this brilliant memoir about how, for as long as she could remember, she struggled to manage and juggle work/family/health/relationships. one day, she decided she simply didn’t have to do it all and intentionally “dropped the ball.”⠀

the result? she became even more connected to her family and community, she began to truly thrive at work, she started sleeping more and felt happier all around. even though this book has been out for a few years, it is worth picking up (or reading again!), especially during this time of year when there seem to be many, many balls in the air.⠀

interested in more incredible #womendoingcoolstuff and the books, podcasts, resources they're paying attention to? join us at the hivery...in person or online, you can become part of our community here > thehivery.com/join⠀

Let the adventure begin! 🌎
sunday was one of the most beautiful days. i know i often post about how amazing the people in our world are, but we really have been surrounded by the best. our new york community blew us away with love today as they celebrated baby freedom’s upcoming arrival and showered us with blessings and gifts.
@ashabercrombie @andiandrew @dani_ella_best @alyxcarral thank you queens for organising the best baby shower we could have asked for! the extravagance and depth of your love blew me away today.
the sweetest moment came as @carriebakermusic led us all in a moment of praise, worship and prayer to god - the author of life and the one to whom we owe all of the thanks for the gift of our son. it’s been a journey, we’ve learnt a lot, cried a ton, questioned a bunch, but come out with praises on our tongue. ‘god is good’ is not just a cute church slogan it is the absolute truth and ultimately the declaration of today. thank you god very being so, so good to us 🙌🏼

We’ve kind of been given the best as we wait for our son, freedom alexander, to arrive. our community has lavished us with all the things and yesterday @leannearanador left her mark in his nursery with one of her original works of art 😍
couldn’t be more thankful and definitely a whole lot of excited. two weeks to go until due date! .

We worked hard and it came together beautifully today. this annual summit we put on for our team brings an incredible energy and a drive to continue to create lives that thrive.
🍃
these local leaders (and all others around the continent joining us via zoom) represent different stories, dreams, and character. diverse background and goals but one mission—

this community we built represents thousands and thousands of healthier families. and healthier families can thrive in all areas. and each of these people are thriving because of the possibilities a business of doing good creates.
🍃
hindsight might be 20/20, but you can look ahead now and see that you can be a part of this impact. we are ready to create more lives that thrive in 2020! don’t look back and wish you had started today. .

Today begins our 21 days of prayer & fasting and it’s not too late to join us as we draw closer to god and seek him first in this new year...together, as a community. click the link in our bio to sign up for daily email encouragement, find helpful resources on fasting and even a 21 day bible reading plan. we’d also love to invite you to join us tomorrow morning for our first tuesday morning prayer gathering of 2020! we’ll gather at 6:30am at 6514 47th st n in pinellas park. just look for the liberty church signs. we’ll worship and pray over our city, our communities, our neighborhoods...it’s going to be a powerful time. there’s no better way to start your day! we guarantee it!

“very truly i tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works i have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because i am going to the father. and i will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the father may be glorified in the son. you may ask me for anything in my name, and i will do it.” john‬ ‭14:12-14‬ ‭niv‬‬

“2019 was a big year of transition for me, just a lot of changes...i didn’t know where i wanted to be. everything was very up in the air. everything that has felt so stable for me suddenly felt transitional...he kept bringing me back in particular to psalm 188:1: ‘give thanks to the lord for he is good; his love endures forever.’

“i felt my heart changing, and i felt myself being able to praise him—not for anything he had done in my life, not for anything i thought he would do, but just for him.

“i’m ending 2019 so much differently than i entered it. i found a real sense of community and family here at liberty. i’ve reconnected with my friends who live here. i’ve found a new job with people i really enjoy working with. it’s been so good, so much blessing. but i’ve learned how to praise him even if he hadn’t done those things. and i’ve learned to trust even when i haven’t seen the breakthrough.”

Dwelling on joy tonight at the end of a very full but beautiful day.
my beautiful mum turned 64 an ocean away. we gathered with community this morning for church and met baby adelaide for the first time. went to a wonderful friend’s wedding this afternoon who blew me away with her beauty and grace. and this evening had quality time with two year old vivian who is a bundle of pure delight!
sometimes joy looks like putting up your feet at the end of a day such as this one and feeling the deepest of contentments and love for your life and those you are doing it with ❤️

comment 14 star 242 last month

“there’s a heaviness that comes from being a person of faith when things keep going wrong...zechariah’s silence made room for understanding god’s love. his silence lifted him above the heaviness of the times and his situations, and allowed him to understand and experience god’s love, and at that moment, other people hear what god has been working on in zechariah. he is now speaking out the same promises he couldn’t begin to process before because of his own pain and short-sightedness.”
–heath kirkendoll, “let every heart prepare him room
*
1. prepare room for him by being still:
where have you resisted his love with your doubt? where have you not been able to receive his love on account of pain, pride, fear?
*
2. prepare room for him with repentance:
zachariah and elizabeth were blameless before god, and he still had some issues to work out. this world had wounded him and his faith in god. we make room by washing away the clutter that is taking away attention, space, devotion from our father.
*
3. we make room for him by believing him:
that heaviness by being in this world, that doubt of his promises, that is not god condemning me. that is me living in a world devoid of god’s promises, goodness, and love because i have not made room for his love in my life, in my heart.
*
4. we make room for him by adoring him.
*
5. we make room for him by loving others.
*
“so from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. though we once regarded christ in this way, we do so no longer. therefore, if anyone is in christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here! “

🔎a little behind the scenes... as the year (and decade) draws to a close, i am taking the last 30-days of the #unbecomingcollective challenge full-steam ahead. 📆
💛
i have always struggled to maintain momentum, to stay engaged, finish, stay motivated, etc.. and, not for lack of work ethic, rather, put simply - i get bored easily. it’s in my dna. i’m an #enneagram7 (the enthusiast) what can i say? 😆😬
💛
the over-arching lesson (and takeaway) for me, from 2019, is this: progress, growth, and change can really only occur in the incubator of community.👫👬👭👫👭
💛
grief recovery taught me this first. the unbecoming collective (a paid accountability group i joined in oct. headed up by @phoebemroczek and @patsykenney ) proved this point again. however, in a different way. having someone/group on the same mission to report to has helped me to keep my promises — to myself.🤝✊🏻
💛
we heal in community. we create change in community. and we become our best selves in community. 💞
💛
we tend to isolate and attempt to diy our lives (🙋🏻‍♀️, that, too, is in my dna😬). however, the only person we hurt in the process is ourselves.
💛
find your peeps. and if you *feel* like this concept is out of reach (like it often felt for me), perhaps others, feeling the same way, are only waiting for an invitation. 🤲🏻

So, how was your 2019?
*
we loved brunching with our team on sunday. we took time to take inventory of this year: realizing the growth, honoring the losses, and celebrating the blessings of the last year.
*
advent is a wonderful time to reflect: what happened this year that shaped you? who were the people who came into your life, the places you visited for the first time, the memories that brought you closer to god and to family?

december is a time to save on hivery memberships! lock in the very low 2019 prices with a 6- or 12-month contract before december 20th! you will automatically get access to both hivery locations...we call it membership everywhere. visit the redwoods in downtown mill valley...experience the creative campus at fort mason and enjoy stunning views of the bay and golden gate bridge in san francisco.⠀

our gift to you...get an extra $50 off any membership before december 20th with code: hiverylove50⠀

This might sound too good to be true, but you and i have become one with christ.⁠ it's in understanding this one-ness that we can realize what it means to be a son or daughter of god.

bay ridge is the best of both worlds: small town / big city. and liberty bay ridge is a community, not a crowd, right here in your neighborhood. join us tomorrow at 10:30am. worship kicks off at 11.

Hey brooklyn, who’s glad they aren’t out in the cold or counting down the minutes till you’re not?🙋🏻‍♀️
while most of us have a home to go to, let’s not forget about those experiencing homelessness right now! here is some important info about how to help:
_
be prepared - carry around zip lock sized care packets filled with socks, hand warmers, travel size hygiene products and a card to a local shelter.
_
the city declares a code blue warning when the temperature drops to 32 degrees or below, including wind-chill. if you see someone in need tonight,
_
🔹ask if the person is ok, has someplace to go and needs help.
🔹call 311 and ask for “homeless outreach” to let the city know that there is a person in need of emergency shelter (note: when code blue is in effect, the call will be re-routed to 911).
🔹if the person seems to require medical attention, call 911 for emergency assistance.
_
info via coalition for the homeless

Whew, teamwork in parenting. beckham had an interesting night and thankfully i had help form brock which means that both of us got some (not enough but some) sleep.
.
it’s so important to have someone who has your back. there are times when we have to go it alone but we are made for community and that’s how we thrive.
.
today is the last day to register to be part of the best community in the “weight loss/health and wellness” industry. we truly have your best interest as our number one priority. if you’ve tried shedding pounds, or eating healthier on your own and it didn’t work, this community is for you.
.
get ready to start 2020 knowing how food fuels your body so you can enjoy eating while gaining energy and losing fat. we thrive in community and faster way to f*t loss is the community you need if you’re struggling to get healthier and shed fat.
.
use code cybersale by the end of today to receive $50 off my next 6 week round starting in january. register at the link in my bio.

It’s been a gorgeous last few days for us in new york full of birthday celebrations, wonderful people, quality time, amazing food, and lots to be thankful for!
i remember a year ago heading into my thirties and feeling so displaced with nothing looking the way i had hoped it would at that point. now as i sit reflecting back on the last couple of days, feeling my son moving within me, and my husband fast asleep in my lap, i am truly in awe of what god has done in these past 12 months.
this past year has taught me the power of faith in a whole new way and it has armed me with a resoluteness and excitement for what lies ahead next.
so thank you for all of your birthday love and wishes this week, and happy thanksgiving!!! i have a feeling 2020 is going to be a good one 😉

The things we want our kids to learn from us are the very things promised to grow in all of us when we follow jesus, thrive in community, and make a difference. our liberty kids showed off their memory verse and the tree they’ve been adding to during their 9-week fruit of the spirit unit.

“there was intimacy at the table. there was betrayal at the table. there was gossip and questioning at the table. there was competition, comparison, challenge, and affirmation. there was truth and love…this was a very interesting dinner dynamic. even though they were so close to jesus they were still looking for their place at the table even though they already had one.”

Love is the first of our five core values as a church. we love because he first loved us. our prayer is that god would give us eyes to see and ears to hear so that we might love extravagantly and dangerously, just as he has called us to do.

“watch what god does, and then you do it, like children who learn proper behavior from their parents. mostly what god does is love you. keep company with him and learn a life of love. observe how christ loved us. his love was not cautious but extravagant. he didn’t love in order to get something from us but to give everything of himself to us. love like that.” ephesians‬ ‭5:1-2‬ ‭msg

How many times do you think you told your kids to be “gentle” this week? liberty kids have been going through the fruit of the spirit and learned this sunday that when we have something special, we want others to be gentle with it. they got to see how people are special to jesus, so he treated them gently, like the woman whom everybody else said deserved punishment. we hope all our kids learn to understand what we mean when we say “gentle” by being shown how special they are and how much they are loved.

the only photo i managed to take tonight at @amarkschrader and @trishschrader ‘s leaving party but i kinda love it. to me it’s evidence of the richness of people that filled the room this evening to love and celebrate you both, and also how much fun was had by us all. cheering you on as you go!
@deebeck and @rajiahsan there is never a dull moment with you two around, thanks for passing this on to the next generation 😂

During this year’s stress awareness week, get back to the basics - make an effort to get a good night's sleep, exercise and eat healthily every day. pay attention to how you feel at the end of the week - it may motivate you to make some longer-term lifestyle changes.

comment 1 star 13 November 2019

Referencing mark 2:1-12 about the four men who carried a paralysed man to jesus by "breaking through" a roof, pastor jordan durso from christ tabernacle in new york, shared such an inspired message about how god can heal our spiritual and physical paralysis when we lift each other up in community. who are the people around you that would be willing to do anything necessary to get you to jesus? who is the person that god is calling you to lead to jesus? as we continue to beileve in the power and love of god, may we be encouraged to get connected and thrive in community so we can see the spirit move and make a difference in our lives. #fourofakind #connection #thriveincommunity #break_through #healing #mondaymotivation

comment 1 star 43 October 2019

I’m grateful that someone taught me how to listen at a young age because i’ve learnt that when you have nothing else, your time, presence and ability to hear somebody else is one of the biggest gifts you can give in that moment.
yesterday i sat and took in the stories of so many individuals that i feel like i’m now carrying them in my heart. today i’ll return to those same men and not much may have changed in their circumstances but they now know they have been received by someone else, and that restores just a little bit of humanity back to a starved heart.
let’s practice being present wherever we are, and honour one another by truly listening to what we each have to say, because we were created for community not island living.

This is why i love @womenofoznwa . as i was finishing a ride this morning i ran into some of the leaders who were out practicing on a rock feature. they quickly invited me to try it. (ok, i usually ride right past this on my rides thinking “no way”!) today, they coached me through it and after a few tries, well, see the video. 😝 #conqueryourfears #thriveincommunity #womenwhoshred

Poner a disposición lo que uno está aprendiendo, practicando y validando. ofrecer un espacio con las condiciones necesarias para que se aprenda, practique y valide personal y colectivamente caminos, estructuras, desvíos y permutaciones.
el mundo del movimiento es tan amplio como el potencial del cuerpo humano.
cada unx responsable de romper su armazón.

Today is world mental health day. the theme for this year is suicide prevention. every 40 seconds, someone loses their life to suicide. if you are struggling with negative emotions, take 40 seconds to kick-start a conversation with someone you trust about how you are feeling.
