Heart Sick

My goal with The Chic Creative is to empower, inspire and educate women in spiritual and personal growth with complete honesty and authenticity. 2019 was an incredible year but it wasn’t without difficulties.   I battled daily with what I now know are “heart issues.”    I spent years living with deeply embedded hurt and resentment that consumed me. During this time I suffered … Read More Heart Sick

Strengthening Our Core

January always find gyms crowded with people firmly resolved to get in shape determined to “strengthen the core” (midsection). A strong physical core requires a daily, disciplined commitment of performing targeted exercises designed to create excellent posture, back strength and overall good health.   Did you know there is another core that when strengthened can create spiritual growth, inner peace during difficult times and … Read More Strengthening Our Core

Week 2 – We Forgive

Week 2 – 52 Weeks of Chic  This week we are going to create mental and spiritual space for a fabulous 2020 by practicing the beneficial but sometimes difficult art of forgiveness. Negative cannot co-exist with positive and the heart filled with bitterness, resentment and anger cannot share space with abundance, joy and freedom.   Therefore the negative has to go.  And it goes … Read More Week 2 – We Forgive

There is a Grace for That

As we begin 2020 we excitedly set goals and resolutions for our new year.  Choosing goals, resolutions and intentions are all empowering actions that I practice and promote.  However, from experience I know most resolutions are abandoned by early February as discouragement and frustration show up in a moment of weakness.   But what if there was a way we actually could achieve every … Read More There is a Grace for That

Merry Christmas!

The gifts are wrapped, stockings are stuffed and Christmas is just around the corner.  As I sit here in my favorite coffeeshop looking back over 2019 and planning 2020, I am overwhelmed with gratitude. In January I decided 2019 would be a year of learning, growing and preparing for 2020 and the decade it ushers in.   From books, podcasts, sermons and online courses … Read More Merry Christmas!

The Joy Stealer

Have you ever started your morning out nicely only to have it fall apart mid-day?   If so, you have just experienced an attack by the joy stealer aka the enemy aka Satan! He shows up in the form of difficult circumstances, confusion, discouragement, overwhelm, lethargy, anxiety, hopelessness and frustration.   It always seems to me he targets those trying to live holy lives. … Read More The Joy Stealer

How to Say Thank You

With Thanksgiving approaching I was thinking this morning of all I had to be grateful for. In prayer I asked God “How could I ever adequately express my gratitude for all He’s done for me? His gentle response? “Let your life be your daily expression of thanks.”  Let me explain. How do we thank Him for our health?  By taking exquisite care of our … Read More How to Say Thank You

The Art of Friendship

Lately I’ve noticed a particular topic frequently mentioned in my social circles and it is the subject of friendship or perhaps the lack thereof.  So many women are desiring yet lacking healthy, meaningful friendships.     Could it be that while we all want friends we have yet to understand “The Art of Friendship?” The Art of Friendship consists of four major components: Time, … Read More The Art of Friendship
