"If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'move from here to there', and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you." Matthew 17:20.
This was my second year hosting a vision board party. What exactly is a vision board? A vision board is a visual expression of one's intents, plans, and purposes that she has set out to meet for the year. It's totally personal -- as only the visionary is able to manifest what's on her board. Vision board parties may not be new to you, but at my parties, we "touch & agree" to initiate our visions. At the conclusion of my events, closing in prayer is the icing on the cake. "A Brunch of Faith" is inspired by the aforementioned scripture. With "faith the size of a mustard seed", you can conquer whatever it is you set out to do.
Even in the midst of planning this event geared to encourage women, and motivate them to visualize their goals, I had faced a number of adversities. I was getting close to giving up, because I had reached my breaking point. Things were picking up at work where I had assumed command of my company, I was (and sill am) adjusting to being a new Mommy, and struggling with ticket sales didn't make it better because that meant I had to front the expenses. My Husband was constantly praying for me: that I remember why I'm doing this, that I'd be blessed with uncommon favor, and find strength through God during the times I wanted to quit! If I could just touch one person's heart, I've done my part.
I had a vision board for my vision board party! It hung on my bathroom mirror so that in the morning and at night, it was the first and last thing I saw. Do not undermine the power of writing things down, and the consistency in praying for what you want. God hears you and knows the desires of your heart! The event turned out beautifully and I'm appreciative of every single woman who came and sponsored seats for others to attend.
Thank you to Brie Elise, my guest speaker, who drove 10 hours from Memphis to TX to sow her seed into these women, even with her "Glam, Grace & Mercy Conference" around the corner! Thank you to my Soror at Fashionably You Boutique for the beautiful stripped body con dress, and also for helping set up/tear down. I appreciate you! Thank you to my coworkers, Ms. Henry & Ms. Barnett for coming before the sun was up to help decorate, I love you two! Thank you to my Mom-in-Love for coming days in advance to lend a hand and watch GiGi while Gianni and I were in the execution phase! Last, but definitely not least, thank you to my loving and supportive Husband! I have to praise my Husband for standing by me through it ALL! Thank you for believing in me, encouraging me and picking me up when I'm at my lowest. Thank you for capturing the moment through video and photo, ripping and running all around Central TX (with little G in tote) to aid in the success of this event! I know that I'll always have a friend in you! You've been holding me down from day 1! I love you!
I have to give a special THANK YOU to the businesses and organizations who sponsored me. Thank you for being a part of something bigger than myself! Everything came out beautifully because you played a role, and I'm so thankful for you!
