Let God's Light Shine from Your Innermost Being

Become Your Best Self: Embrace God's Light

Let's look at the different ways we can begin developing into a refined, well-rounded, composed woman of God:

  • Discover Your Confidence

  • Discover Your Freedom

  • Discover Your Path

  • Discover Your Purpose

  • A Prayer for You

As a Christian woman, I believe that spiritual growth is a continuous journey. I invite you to follow me on this path towards becoming the best version of ourselves. Let's learn and grow together!

At My Sun & Shade Ministries, we are committed to helping you center your thoughts and personal goals around Christ. By keeping Him as your focus, you can fulfill the call God has on your life and become all that He has purposed you to be.

Discover Your Confidence

The pursuit of becoming our best selves is a topic that has always fascinated me, and I've found myself exploring Christian self-help books to learn more about achieving this goal. In my quest, I've accumulated an impressive collection of self-help books for women, offering guidance on becoming a great wife, a better mother, how to cultivate inner peace, how to find rest in marriage, how to grow spiritual strong, and how to pray effectively. However, I've come to learn that the greatest self-help book ever written is the Word of God. This is the self-help book that has brought me the greatest enlightenment and has aided my personal growth and development like none other!

I have discovered that there is so much wisdom and understanding on every matter of life, that I would be a fool if I didn't search the Bible for answers to daily living.

One Scripture verse that is the foundation of my confidence is found in Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths."

My confidence is in the Lord because I have put my whole trust in Him. This means, that I do not trust in myself because I fail and make mistakes all the time, but I choose to trust in God, and because I trust in Him, I don't have to be worried, stressed, depressed, confused, or shaken in any way because I believe that He is in control. This amazing trust and belief I have in God gives me the freedom to be a confidant Christian woman.

Discover Your Freedom

In particular, the transformation in my confidence has been remarkable. I have developed a new perspective on how I view others and how I view myself. This has brought about a boldness in Christ. I am no longer afraid of people or their opinions. This new-found freedom is incredibly liberating.

Discover Your

The Word of God acts as a compass, guiding us on our journey and revealing the path to internal peace. For me, the Lord has been an invaluable mentor and companion, providing me a wealth of guidance as I strive to become the best version of myself through His spirit and grace.

You can find the Bible to be a valuable resource of wisdom and guidance as well. When beginning your spiritual journey, give yourself time get accustomed to the way the Bible is written. The meaning behind the passages are hidden from the casual reader, it is only through the eyes of the Spirit can we discern how to apply the written Word to your life.

Once the Holy Spirit opens your eyes to understand the truths hidden within its pages you will begin to see Scripture will become a lamp to your feet and a light to your path.

Discover Your Purpose

If you're seeking ways to deepen your relationship with Christ and fulfill His ultimate purpose for your life, you've come to the right place. I'm here to support you on your spiritual journey, and I hope that my blog posts, prayers, and articles on personal growth will be a blessing to you.

While I am not a theological expert, I am a devoted Christian woman and a pastor's wife with years of ministry experience. I offer insights and words of wisdom that I hope will inspire and guide you.

Final Thoughts

As a Christian woman, I know that life's hardships can be overwhelming without love and guidance from someone we trust and love. That is why it is so important to develop and maintain a solid relationship with the Lord. It is because of His divine influence on my life that I am walking according to Scripture. The Lord has helped me through many struggles, and I am grateful for the desire He has given put within my heart to be my best-self in all circumstances.

My prayer for you is that you will feel the Lord's love, joy, and peace every day of your life. May you seek Him for wisdom and guidance in striving towards becoming your confident best-self.
